We love ourselves some Jimmy Fallon.
Besides his obvious humor and charm, he is way too cool to let the politics of late night hosting get to him!
Jimmy has supposedly been promised Jay Leno's seat for the Tonight Show, but he is in NO rush to replace Jay because he loves his current gig!
In regards to Late Night, Jimmy told GQ:
“On Late Night, it’s like we’re all in on the joke. That’s what I wanted it to be. I’m not doing something sneaky. Inside jokes, I don’t like those. We can all ride together, and everyone’s on the same thing going, ‘Aha, I know where you’re going here.’ And if we get weird, everyone knows, ‘Okay, we’ll go for that little ride of being weird.’"
And how we adore those odd rides!!!
All jokes aside, the real reason the funny man isn't lobbying to hustle it over to NBC is because he has no interest in creating any dramz similar to the Conan O'Brien and Jay feud.
“I mean, in the nicest way, who really cares. In the nicest way. It would be great, sure, I guess. I’d love it, but it’s not on my mind. I’m in no rush to do anything. I’m kind of a boring character in that book. I’m not in a fight with Jay or Conan, or any of them. I don’t have that story.”
We care, Jimmy! We CARE!
However, we DO respect that you don't want to be at the center of yet ANOTHER feud.
Their bickering did have its entertaining moments, but there is NO NEED to repeat history.
In this case we're betting the nice guy will finish first!
