Our top moments of the week:
14. The First (Hair)Cut Is the Deepest: On The Mindy Project, our fearless heroine develops a crush on a cool pastor who unfortunately finds her to be a little self-absorbed. To show him how altruistic she is, she volunteers to treat the inmates at a women's prison, but when she gives one woman candy and a pashmina, it incites a riot, during which Mindy loses a giant chunk of her hair.
13. Most Heartbreaking Finale: We know we're supposed to root for Raylan on Justified, but it's Boyd and Ava's unhappy ending that hits home on the season finale. After forces conspire to separate Boyd and Ava as they're stealing Delroy's body from the funeral home (no body, no murder charges!), Ava ends up getting arrested. With his fiancée being carted off to jail, Boyd breaks into the couple's dream home and stares longingly at the backyard — and the...

Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon
Hours after Jimmy Fallon officially got tapped as the (eventual) successor to the Tonight Show throne, his future late-night competition had something to say about it.
Jay Leno, Jimmy Fallon
Jimmy Fallon will replace Jay Leno as the host of Tonight Show next spring, NBC confirmed Wednesday.
"Congratulations Jimmy," Leno said in a statement. "I hope you're as lucky as me and hold on to the job until you're the old guy. If you need me, I'll be at the garage."
Fallon added with his own humorous sentiment: "I'm really excited to host a show that starts today instead of tomorrow."
NBC also confirmed reports that The Tonight Show will move back to its original home in New York when Fallon takes over. The Tonight Show debuted in the Big Apple with Steve Allen in 1954 before Johnny Carson moved it to Burbank, Calif., in 1972.

Jimmy Fallon and Jay Leno
Feud? What feud? While NBC is reportedly poised to replace longtime Tonight Show host Jay Leno with Jimmy Fallon, there doesn't seem to be any bad blood between the pair -- a fact they made abundantly clear when they performed a duet together Monday night.

Even if Jimmy Fallon is on deck to take over The Tonight Show, the earliest that will happen is a year from now. NBC has more pressing issues right now, starting with primetime.
