After hosting late night shows for over three decades, says he is fully embracing life off the air since retiring in May!
Speaking to Whitefish Review, the 68-year-old explained that he wasn't sure how he was going to feel once Stephen Colbert took over his desk — but it turned out it felt all too natural to move on!
It seems like this was happening just yesterday!
Jimmy Fallon has been an incredible host on The Tonight Show, but that doesn't mean we've forgotten about past hosts — well one in particular!
That's why when Jimmy 'pulled a hammy' on one of his jokes, he decided to tap out and tag his old buddy and former Tonight Show host, Jay Leno, in!
The 65-year-old comedian looked like he never left that game as he made fun of the government, the economy, and of course the Kardashians! LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out the HIGHlarious throwback to Leno's hosting days and let us know who you think is the better Tonight Show host!
We bet Sarah Silverman would agree with him — HA!
Jimmy Kimmel may be one of the reigning kings of Late Night, but that doesn't mean he's necessarily loved by everyone in the industry.
In a recent interview, Jay Leno got a little blunt while promoting his new CNBC show Jay Leno's Garage, and called Jimmy out for being so mean.
In fact, the former Tonight Show host blamed Jimmy Kimmel Live's less than stellar ratings on his "mean streak," saying:
Sometimes a diss is just a misunderstanding.
Joan was famous banned from NBC's The Tonight Show by Jay's predecessor, Johnny Carson, after she launched a rival show on FOX. During Jay's 20+ year late night run, Joan was never invited (though Jimmy Fallon eventually ask her back).
Melissa says she was dissed by Jay at event just months after Joan's death:
"My mother passed in September, and I was asked to speak at The Hollywood Reporter Women in Entertainment breakfast at the beginning of December, so it was very fresh … I walk in, and I'm standing, having a coffee in the reception area, and Jay…looks right at me, and looks away."
Melissa thought he would approach her and offer his condolences:
"It would have been closure, and it would have been the right thing to do."
In an EXCLUSIVE statement to PerezHilton.com, Jay's rep says it was all a misunderstanding:
It's time. What time? Late. LATE Late. And James Corden is ready.
Well, not READY ready. But with the help of some serious star power he might be!
