Since David Letterman has publicly decided to hang up his blue notecards sometime in 2015, the fate of the Late Show has been the subject of wild speculation. While many are wondering WHO the host of the show will be, the mayors of both LA and NYC are far more concerned with WHERE the show will take place. Historically, these things haven’t moved much, but Fallon’s graduation took The Tonight Show from LA to NYC, so now all bets are off.

The day after the announcement, LA mayor Eric Garcetti reached out to CBS head honcho Les Moonves to urge the show to find its way to LA, and a few days ago, NYC mayor Bill de Blasio urged Moonves to stay put, citing the success of NYC as a backdrop for Late Show.

While LA certainly has more trappings as an entertainment town, there’s something about the energy level of NYC, especially with Letterman’s street segments, that the likes of Jay Leno could never really replicate on the sidewalks of Hollywood Blvd or Universal Studios. However, it will probably come down to who hosts the show, and not what mayors want.

With Jay Leno leaving The Tonight Show for real this time and Jimmy Fallon taking over those hosting duties, NBC has confirmed suspicions that Seth Meyers will replace Fallon as Late Night host. “It always seemed like a logical next move,” says the SNL veteran and Weekend Update host. “It was just competing with the very emotional idea of leaving a place I have been for a very long time. But if you are going to do that, it seems like you might as well just move a hallway or two.” Makes sense. He probably won’t even need to hire movers.

Meyers will wrap up SNL’s fall season before moving to Late Night this winter, and then probably return to SNL when Leno decides he’s not giving up The Tonight Show after all. (NY Times)

Howard Stern Slams Jay Leno, Makes Us Nostalgic For January 2010 http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/howard-stern-slams-jay-leno-apparently-not-the-first-to-do-so/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/howard-stern-slams-jay-leno-apparently-not-the-first-to-do-so/#comments Tue, 18 Jan 2011 07:11:44 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=17511 Conan O'Brien has made some kind of angry peace with Jay Leno, but Howard Stern recently Jaywalked all up in the Tonight Show host's freakish chin.

One year later, Conan O’Brien has made some kind of angry peace with Jay Leno, but Howard Stern recently Jaywalked all up in the Tonight Show host’s freakish chin. The skeezy shock jock pulled no punches on an upcoming interview for CNN‘s Piers Morgan Tonight, calling Leno “insane,” which definitely means something from a man who once dressed up in ass-less spandex in front of millions and called himself “Fartman.” He also says Leno is “a crook,” which would mean Leno is incapable of coming up with his own consistently mediocre-to-terrible material.

Stern also took a big dump on Leno’s audience too:

“He’s not fit to scrub David Letterman‘s feet,” he goes on. “I don’t know how he’s beaten David Letterman in the ratings. It’s beyond my comprehension. America must be filled with morons who at night lay in bed — the ones who are watching him, they must be in a coma.”

When the Conan controversy erupted, I really hated Leno. Now that it’s all died down, I don’t know… it’s not that I think he’s even remotely amusing. It’s just that he’s so milquetoast, it’s hard for me to feel anything about him. I have no strong like or dislike of Wonder Bread, Matthew Sweet or the Toyota Camry either – they just kind of are. However, if Stern wants to spend the energy to hate him, I wish “The King of All Media That’s Satellite Radio” lots of luck. (Hollywood Reporter)

Zack Morris on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/zack-morris-on-late-night-with-jimmy-fallon/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/zack-morris-on-late-night-with-jimmy-fallon/#comments Tue, 09 Jun 2009 18:58:32 +0000 Reza F. Kudos to you, Mark Paul Gosselaar, for being able to make fun of yourself.  Kudos, to you, sir!  Last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Mark Paul Gosselaar, currently starring in "Raising the Bar" on TNT, showed up in full "Saved By the Bell" Zach Morris regalia, and did a classic Zach Morris direct-address to camera.  It was kind of uncanny how much he can still pull off Bayside High's coolest student ever.  The phone you could choke a horse with played no small part in selling it.  Say what you want about Jimmy Fallon as a host.  He's still finding his legs.  But you can't deny he and his team of writers - including head staffer A.D. Miles from "The State" - are coming up with some material that rivals Conan's Late Night crew.
