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!
In regards to Late Night, Jimmy told GQ:
If Jay Leno is going down, he's going down swinging!
With rumors swirling that NBC is looking to replace him, you would think the Late Night host would learn to play nice with the network. But apparently that just isn't his style!
In one of his latest monologues, Leno throws some serious shade at NBC execs, saying:
"Well you know the whole legend of St. Patrick, right? St. Patrick drove all of the snakes out of Ireland, and then they came into the United States and became NBC executives! It's a fascinating story!"
We're guessing the big wigs at NBC weren't too thrilled with the punch line, especially considering that entertainment chief Robert Greenblatt was already upset about jokes he recently made about the network falling to 5th in the ratings. It sounds to us like he's walking on some VERY thin ice!
This hardly seems like a good idea since there have recently been reports that the network is looking to get rid of the veteran host and replace him with Jimmy Fallon. But the last time Leno was supposed to be replaced it didn't go according to plan. Just ask Conan O'Brien!
Check out his monologue … AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Whoa!! Nina Dobrev really puts the VD in Vampire Diaries!
And by VD, we mean Valentine's Day — because she's full of love, not diseases!
The tantalizing TV starlet took her fabulousness to Conan last night, and you won't believe what she said!
If you've watched her delightfully deviant dramz about vexing vampires sucking sweet blood and making sweet love, this won't be much of a shock, but Nina says she's gotten down with each of her co-stars!!
Jay Leno's Late Night Reign Is FINALLY Coming To An End! NBC Moving To REPLACE Him With Jimmy Fallon!
Hmmm…this all sounds vaguely familiar, doesn't it?
And although we don't want to get our hopes up, our fingers will stay crossed that this move works out better than the last time they tried it!
More details are surfacing that seem to confirm our previous report that NBC is making moves to FINALLY show Jay Leno the door, as his contract with the The Tonight Show expires after the 2013-14 season…and execs with the network are hoping to segue Jimmy Fallon from Late Night into the much-sought-after 11:35 time slot, as early as the summer of 2014!
According to insiders, Leno is just as reluctant to leave as ever, because he
You sly fox, you!
Sadly, he wasn't there to accept his award, but he mailed in a pleasant video speech they played for his fans!
Congratulations, Mzr. Fallon!
Just promise you won't let this go to your head, mmmkay?!

We hope it's much better than Animal Practice, and just as awesome at the Mindy Project!
With Conan O'Brien behind (one of the) wheel(s), we can't help but be excited for Bob’s New Heart Show, which appears to be a riff on TV classic The Bob Newhart Show. Fox has just closed the deals for the script order — and it sounds like it's going to be a single-camera comedy, luckily. We still can't believe what they're doing to Up All Night!
The show will be about a young hotshot doctor who, after receiving a heart transplant, re-evaluates his life and takes over the small family practice in the working-class neighborhood where he grew up.
Sounds fab to us — and we trust Conan's taste!
Plus, the successful medical comedy void has been empty since Scrubs, so we think the world is ready for something new!
