Like Jimmy Fallon? Well, you're in luck.
NBC has extended the comedian's contract to host The Tonight Show for six more years, through the fall of 2021, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt announced at the Television Critics Association fall previews on Thursday. "Jimmy Fallon is still simply the best that there is — the most versatile star of a show anywhere on television," Greenblatt told reporters. "The Tonight Show has always been an institution for us, but he's remade it into a destination for the largest audience anywhere in late night. Obviously we didn't want Jimmy going anywhere... I know I speak for [NBC CEO and President] Steve Burk and everybody at NBC how elated we all are that he's going to be around for a long time in the role I think he was born to play."
Fallon has made his mark by involving his celebrity guests in a series of fun games and activities that include playing Pictionary, Catchphrase, dancing, "Egg Russian Roulette" and lip-sync battles, which was spun-off to its own hit show on Spike.
Although NBC did not make a parallel announcement for Seth Meyers, who took over Late Night this year, it's clear the network is still high on him as well. "I'm very pleased with the format change Seth just made this week with his opening monologue," Greenblatt said. "He now begins the show sitting at the desk and getting right to the news of the day. This is his strong suit, and we've been happy to see the press and viewers react so positively to this change. His show is already on a 20-week ratings high, and heading into this, shall I say, crazy election year, I think it only gives Seth more and more momentum."
The Tonight Show airs weeknights at 11:35/10:35c on NBC.
