True, the book I'm reading bears this out.

The reporting and accusation was that Fallon berated a crew member for making a mistake during a taping when Seinfeld was a guest, and that Seinfeld had to make Fallon apologize.

Seinfled does not go into any detail about what did happen. He simply says there was "a flub" and that he teased Fallon about it. Seinfeld describes it all as good-natured.

So yes, something did happen, but Seinfeld is saying that none of it happened the way it has been reported. He says it is "an idiotic twisting of events."

I think it is accurate to characterize Seinfeld's comments as saying the story is BS.

Re: The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon Discussion Thread

Good morning, I stopped looking at this thread last weekend. It is not my desire or habit to bail on discussions I am involved in (see: the Leftovers thread) but I felt the back-and-forth had reached the point where the comments had become personal, and if I continued to reply, I was going to get heated and maybe start crossing lines.

I didn't bring up Horatio Sanz and the teenager he targeted for sex. And I didn't bring up that Jimmy Fallon had anything to do with that situation. I replied to someone else's post.

I don't want to derail the thread, and I won't continue a pointless debate on the subject. I have thought about a lot of things to say to try to explain my POV, but I will just say one, and I will spoiler tag it, so no one has to read it if they don't want to.

Spoiler:

Ultimately, what I can't understand or accept about the situation is that this young woman, or someone in her life, like her parents, could not see the situation for what it was.
Adult men do not pursue social relationships with high school students because they are interested in making friendships or finding someone who's a "good hang." They are looking for sex; that's it.
This teenage girl was attending all-night drunken parties in the company of a man twice her age. And everything she says about it, 20 years later, is that the people at SNL and NBC should not have allowed that to happen. She never says anything about her decision-making, or the role of her parents in allowing this to happen.
Am I mistaken in my belief that high school students still live with their parents?

The fun talk show host with the superior Ben and Jerry Ice Cream flavor has a two hour 10th anniversary special coming this Tuesday.

I can think of about a half dozen better flavors than Tonight Dough.

I like Phish Food because I am lactose intolerant, so I watch Greg Gutfeld for the intolerance.

Americone dream is the most generic flavor ever and it is vanillla but fitting since it is named for a bland late night talk show host.

Saying that is better than the Tonight Dough is like saying french fries are better than hamburgers.

Fallon has more people that watch his show and videos online compared to the other hosts.

My perfect late night show would be Colbert's monologue + Seth's "A Closer Look" + whatever Fallon's big comedy sketch is + a celebrity interview based on the celebrity

Do you have statistics to back that up? And is that significant? Kimmel has the top ratings in the coveted 18-49 demographic and Colbert is the top rated late night show overall.

Clicked on NBC and Fallon was doing his end-of-the-week Thank you Notes bit. Since when has he been taking Fridays off for a rerun?

Re: The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon Discussion Thread

It seems he does that every Summer

Maybe he demanded it or it gives him more time to film Password and That's My Jam?

I assume he will need some down time to prepare for the Paris Closing Ceremonies though it seems most of the hosts wing it and it less important than the opening ceremonies.

BTW this is more entertaining than Elizabeth Warren on Colbert.

Re: The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon Discussion Thread

But Fallon has the sense to make her the second or third guest and not the first guest like Colbert

Ya gotta put Fran in the #2 slot when you have a heavy hitting superstar like Bobby Flay in the lead off spot.
