Ruh-roh! The Tonight Show train has barely left the station, but it already might be coming off the tracks!
Jimmy Fallon's relaunch of the iconic late night show has been super successful thus far - maybe too successful! The ratings have been so good, in fact, that the suits at NBC feel comfortable going for the jugular!
According to sources, Jimmy and the show-runners are basically blackmailing would-be guests! They're saying that if celebz ever want to come on the wildly popular show they won't be allowed to do similar interviews with the competition!
And we're not just talking the likes of Jimmy Kimmel and Conan O'Brien - the ban extends to morning shows and primetime news programs, too! Tonight Show guests are apparently allowed to appear on Dateline and Today, but that's it!!
Wow, we've seen hosts play hardball before, but this is INSANE!
We wonder if this will backfire? Would an A-list actor really get more mileage out of one appearance with Fallon than they would from visiting those other shows?
Only time will tell!
