Is the King of All Media preparing to conquer a new realm?
With rumors circulating that Jay Leno will announce his retirement this May and hand over reigns of The Tonight Show to Jimmy Fallon in 2014, The New York Post now reports that NBC has already selected its ideal replacement for the 12:35 a.m. time slot:
Sources tell the newspaper Stern is being “groomed” by the network to move into late night television, as executives are thrilled with his work on America’s Got Talent.

As part of his whirlwind promotional tour this week, Justin Bieber spent some time with Jimmy Fallon.
But there was no art history mockery involved during this late-night visit.
Instead, viewers were treated to some serious competition between singer and host, as each has come out with a new album and each was set on proving he was more awesome than the other… at push-ups… at video games… at holding one’s breath… at dancing.

Comedian George Lopez may not be the leading late night talk show man at TBS anymore, but he sure is stirring up some controversy for late night TV.
Lopez admitted to Piers Morgan on his CNN show that he doesn’t care much for competitor Jay Leno. Previously describing Leno has the “biggest two-faced dude and a backstabber,” Lopez played off the vile nature of his remarks but didn’t retract his previous statements.
“I don’t have a personal relationship with Jay Leno. We are not friends. Nor have we ever been friendly. I’ve heard some things said about me by him that I took exception to,” saidMore >

Rebecca Black has no talent and nevertheless earned 118 million YouTube views and a legit record deal since we all love watching peeps with no talent try to sing online.
In spite of that, she’s worried about being pigeonholed by the song!
The 13-year-old Black told the AP she wants a career in which she’s respected as a recording artist … adding, “I don’t want to be known as the ‘Friday’ girl.”
“Hopefully, I can be known as Rebecca Black and not the ‘Friday’ girl. I want to be a performing artist,” she adds. “That’s what I’ve always wanted to do.”

It’s Justin Bieber’s world. The rest of us are just living in it.
In fact, they should really rename the Webby Awards, one of which he’s nominated for, the Bieber Awards. Nominations for the 15th annual show – the Oscars of the Web – were unveiled today, and you best believe JB’s on the list.
Everyone from Justin Bieber to Jimmy Fallon to Conan O’Brien to Isaiah Mustafa are in contention. But none can match the greatness of a man who takes over whatever he pleases. Here’s the classic video that got the Bieb nominated:
His songs were covered on American Idol this week. He’s hosting Saturday Night Live tomorrow. And now Elton John is jumping into the fray of another pop culture debate.
In an interview with Jimmy Fallon last night, the veteran artist was asked about Kings of Leon and Dave Grohl, musicians that have lashed out at Glee creator Ryan Murphy for asking if his show could cover their singles.
“When someone wants to do your song, it’s a compliment,” John said, getting pointed in his criticism of Kings of Leon: “Lighten up, you assholes… I mean, this is a compliment. Also, it sends a positiveMore >
This is not the Tiger Woods of old. Or even of 2009.
On Thanksgiving night that year, his personal life erupted in scandal. The damage to his family and his golf game took pretty much all of 2010 to play out.
As he looks to turn over a new leaf on and off the course this year, Woods talked about his career, kids and quest for balance on Good Morning America:
In the interview, which was more subdued and serious than his chat with Jimmy Fallon, the golfer talked about how he’s adjusting to life as a single dad.
“I’m present with my kids,” he said. “That’sMore >
Tiger Woods made a rare television appearance last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon – the golfer’s first such interview since the late 2009 “incident.”
We don’t have to get into Rachel Uchitel, the car crash and everything else. Fallon started off asking Woods what he’s been up to the last year and a half.
“Oh, nothing, nothing… Playing bad golf,” the champion said, smiling.
“From a comedian’s stand-point and my monologue writers, thank you,” Fallon said, speaking for all of us. “Your awful pain, we laughed at your pain.”
Even Tiger had to chuckle when Fallon added: “Not even makingMore >
It’s totally on between Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus.
In order to promote her appearance on Saturday Night Live this weekend, the latter was a guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon yesterday. She talked to the host about a number of topics, eventually settling on her obsession with… mustaches?!?
“I have a diamond mustache with me at all times,” she said. “I collect all kind of things with mustaches – pins and mugs and people.”
That’s unusual, but who are we to judge? Except when it comes to creating a mustache war between Cyrus and Bieber, of course, as the latter also went the fakeMore >
[HMG Celebrity News] – The curious sideshow that is Charlie Sheen has provided late night comics with a positive banquet of five-star material, and last night Jimmy Fallon took his turn at the feast.
Charlie did a live interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan on Monday, and that plus the rather unique stream of logic-optional statements he’s made since this saga began gave the 36-year old host some Grade-A material.
Donning a ‘New York’ t-shirt similar to what Chuck wore while talking to Piers, Jimmy channels the 45-year old actor in this slick, faux commercial for Chuck’s new ‘cologne,’ calledMore >
The best moments on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon have come from the hosts willingness to take to the mic with guest stars and this week Fallon shared a rap with Gwyneth Paltrow.
The duo, decked out in goofy hip hop outfits performed a song from their 90′s group Shazzazz. You may recall that in 1999 while hosting Saturday Night Live, Paltrow and Fallon performed as their characters Mindy and Skye.
On the show this time around the duo sang their characters songs “Let’s Do It” followed by “Do It Again” and “We Did It.”
Here’s the video of the skit brought to us by NBC:
