From one legend to another!

Meryl Streep is about to have another iconic character on her hands when Ricki and The Flash premieres, but to get ready for the rock and roll role, she had a pretty impressive teacher.

None other than Neil Young himself!

Filed under: TV NewsJay LenoJimmy FallonBusiness Blitz

jay leno ratings spike nbc tonight show jimmy fallon jimmy kimmel sweeps

In the past year, the flailing network needlessly torpedoed Ann Curry's career, completely bumbled the coverage of the Olympics, and even announced the premature death of astronaut rock legend Neil Young!

Replacing Jay Leno on The Tonight Show with the younger Jimmy Fallon is just about the only thing they did right!!

…Or did they?!
