Sylvester Stallone told Jay Leno he will not be participating in the “Rocky” musical coming to Broadway early next year because his voice would turn it into “a haunted theater,” so in typical late-night talk show fashion, Leno showed the audience what Stallone was talking about. “I sang with Dolly Parton, then I realized, ‘God what a fool I am,’” Stallone said of his “Rhinestone” performance in 1984. “Oh my God, seriously. If you ever want somebody to haunt a ship, get a record of that.” Also read: ‘Rocky’ Musical Heading to Broadway Of course, Leno did have a record, and Stallone, »

We saw that, Demi! ‘The X Factor’ finale on Dec. 20 hit an awkward patch when the show aired a segment accusing the singer of drinking ‘Annoying Juice’ and cameras caught her looking Extremely peeved! Watch the clip below.
Hey, The X Factor, remember that time Demi Lovato, one of the judges on your show, had a debilitating alcohol addiction? We ask, because it seems like the producers of the show forgot on Dec. 20 when they aired an insensitive clip of Demi drinking a mysterious substance and she responded with a huge F-bomb!
The clip was a joke (at least an attempt at one) on why Demi has been getting on Simon Cowell‘s nerve all season, and attributed it to the “juice” she’s been drinking. The segment digitally altered previous footage to make it look like Demi was feverishly sucking down some neon green concoction. »

Not surprisingly, a flurry of reports have surfaced that Jay Leno, the reigning King of Late Night, is already fielding inquiries from other networks about doing a new show once Jimmy Fallon succeeds him on The Tonight Show in April. With NBC unlikely to find him another spot — we all remember how that Leno-in-primetime experiment turned out — moving to another network makes sense for the host, and one option in particular could make for an attractive third chapter in his career: CNN.

Washington, Dec 19: Olivia Wilde, who is expecting her first child with fiance Jason Sudeikis, believes that people act as if they do not know she's pregnant out of some well-intentioned sense of politeness.
The 'Her' star told 'The Tonight Show' host Jay Leno that the worst thing in the world is to congratulate a non-pregnant woman on her pregnancy, and people will go to great lengths to not mention it, Us Magazine reported.
The 29-year-old actress added that unless someone's watching you give birth, they don't want to make the wrong call. (Ani) »

Jay Leno has for years, despite a wide array of competition, kept NBC with the largest portion of the increasingly splintered latenight audience. Could he do something similar for CNN?
Speculation has erupted, as it often does in these sorts of scenarios, that Leno is entertaining deals from any number of interested parties for a new gig once he steps down from the Peacock’s “Tonight” throne come early next year. Among the suitors, according to a report in The Hollywood Reporter, is Time Warner’s venerable cable-news outlet, currently led by former NBCUniversal topper Jeff Zucker.
The combination would seem to be a potent one. Leno exudes the same kindof aw-shucks charm as Larry King, the one-time linchpin of CNN’s primetime schedule. He could hold forth at 11 p.m. on CNN – a time when viewers may not be expecting traditional anchor-and-desk fare - and let loose with a »

Jay Leno might be reading an entirely different set of “Headlines” next year. According to The Hollywood Reporter, CNN president Jeff Zucker recently met with the longtime Tonight Show host to discuss his plans for after he retires from the show in February. This included discussion of an offer for a possible late-night or primetime show on the cable news network, which Zucker has headed since January. »
The idea that Jay Leno might be wooed by various suitors for a new TV gig creates a problem for NBC. Not necessarily the threat that its current “The Tonight Show” host is going to go into business opposite Jimmy Fallon, but that the uncertainty surrounding the future TV Academy Hall of Famer will overshadow, or at least distract attention from, its introduction of Jimmy Fallon as his replacement.
It should come as no surprise that producers and networks — including CNN CEO Jeff Zucker, Leno’s one-time boss — would be kicking the tires regarding Leno’s future plans. Indeed, the idea of CNN using Leno to prop up its sluggish primetime lineup seemed pretty obvious, or at least worth considering, back when the Fallon handoff was being announced last spring.

Jay Leno is fast approaching the end of the road at NBC as Jimmy Fallon prepares to take over The Tonight Show during the Winter Olympics in February (Fallon just revealed the show's new logo today). But could his next steps lead him back into business with the man who led the last disastrous, aborted Tonight Show transition to Conan O'Brien? »

Jimmy Fallon is not long for his extremely late time slot. The Late Show host makes his official debut as the new face of The Tonight Show on Feb. 17, after Jay Leno's exit, and NBC is not waiting until the Winter Olympics to promote the changing of the guard.

Luckily, Olivia Wilde didn't pull a Jessica Simpson when asked about her baby's gender during her appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night. "It's human. We feel good about that," the pregnant celeb coyly shared when asked if she's having a boy or girl while appearing on the late night talk show on Tuesday, Dec. 17. Wilde is expecting her first child with fiancé Jason Sudeikis. The lovebirds first met on the season finale of Saturday Night Live in 2011, and news of Wilde's pregnancy broke in late October of this year.

This is really happening, people.
Late Night host Jimmy Fallon has just tweeted out the logo for his revamped Tonight Show, premiering next February after the Olympics on NBC. The all-caps letters are reminiscent of Fallon’s Late Night logo. The full orb may be making you thirsty for a beer. It seems more modern than current Tonight host Jay Leno’s own logo — and it’s also got approximately 90 percent more moon.

This story first appeared in the Jan. 3, 2014, issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. How in demand is Jay Leno? The most watched late-night host, who will be without a TV job in February when NBC transitions The Tonight Show to Jimmy Fallon, has been approached by some unlikely suitors. Photos: Jimmy Fallon: From Early 'SNL' to Movie Star to 'Late Night' Sources tell THR that CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker -- who, while running NBCUniversal, famously set in motion Leno's first ouster from Tonight by promising the show to Conan O'Brien in 2009 -- is among those who have approached

Justin Timberlake didn't appear on-camera in promos for his musical appearance opposite host Jimmy Fallon on Saturday Night Live this weekend, but he was certainly there in spirit. In fact, it seems the pop singer's absence was acutely felt.
"Oh, he couldn't make it, his flight was canceled," Fallon tells Kenan Thompson on the roof at Rockefeller Center, which prompts a bombardment of snowballs from off-camera. In the next bit, Thompson, face wrapped in a scarf, pretends he is Timberlake and promises, »
With the 2014 Winter Olympics taking place in Sochi, Russia, many are divided on their support of the event. A law was passed in June, making it illegal to spread "propaganda for non-traditional sexual relations" to minors in the country, leaving most wondering where the unexpected anti-gay legislature came from.
Meredith Vieira appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" to talk about NBC's coverage of the games and she says there was a lot of internal debate at the network about going, "but at the end of the day it's about the athletes." Still, she also hopes that athletes and attendees alike demonstrate their disapproval for the law.
It's Jay Leno who gets the final word on the controversial laws. "I don't know how it's different from ... I mean, this is how it started in Nazi Germany. 'Oh the Jews, just put them over here'," he says. "It just makes me uncomfortable. »
With his departure from NBC’s “Tonight Show” approaching, Jay Leno isn’t holding back. The comedian is making headlines after his Monday night interview with his guest, “Today’s” Meredith Vieira, in which he compared the upcoming Sochi Olympics to Nazi Germany because of Russia’s anti-gay law.
In the interview, Vieira began by saying that she and the “Today” team had “mixed feelings” about covering the event because of “the stuff going on in Russia with [President Vladimir] Putin and the anti-gay legislation.” At the end of the back-and-forth discussions, they opted to cover the games after they decided the Olympics are about the athletes. Though Vieira did mention that she hopes people continue to demonstrate in protest. Leno, however, took the discussion one stronger step further with a controversial comparison.

Once again, Jay Leno is not holding back on his way out the door at NBC. On Monday night, the departing Tonight Show host compared the upcoming Sochi Olympics to Nazi Germany due to Russia’s anti-gay law.
Leno started the topic by asking guest Meredith Vieira, who will help cover the Games with NBC’s Today team, if she was excited about the event. “I have mixed feelings, with all the stuff going on in Russia with Putin and the anti-gay legislation,” Vieira said. “There was a lot of debate, internally … at the end of the day it’s about the athletes. »

The jokes were set aside — at least for a minute — on Monday’s “Tonight Show,” as Meredith Vieira and Jay Leno tackled the debate surrounding the setting for the 2014 Winter Olympics. The two got deep for a bit on the NBC late night talk show, discussing their mixed feelings on the network’s coverage of the Sochi Games. Leno asked fellow NBC personality Vieira if she is excited about the upcoming event, to which she replied. “I have sort of mixed feelings given all the stuff that’s going on in Russia with Putin and the anti-gay legislation.” Also read: Yahoo and NBC Extend. »
