Jimmy Fallon's 'Late Night' Renewed for Third Season
By Kiki Von Glinow Posted Apr 21st 2011 03:50PM
Although his rise to the top of the late night totem pole was at first an uncertain one, Jimmy Fallon has proved that he's more than comfortable in his interviewing chair. According to Entertainment Weekly, Fallon's contract was renewed earlier this year, binding him to the show until early 2012, at least.
According to EW, Fallon's ratings were up 16 percent, averaging 1.8 million viewers per show. NBC's 'Last Call with Carson Daly' and Jay Leno's 'The Tonight Show' were also renewed for another season.
From 'Thank You Notes' to delightful musical snacks, it's no wonder that Fallon is raking in some big numbers. Take a look back at some of the NBC golden boy's most defining (and hilarious) moments so far:
In this session of thank you note writing, Fallon thanks Helen Mirren for posing nude in New York Magazine: "It's good to see you're still a proud member of SAG."
In this clip, Fallon, as Neil Young, covers the lyrical genius that is Willow Smith's 'Whip My Hair,' before turning the tune into a duet with surprise guest, Bruce Springsteen.
And, of course, the legendary Roots are the cherry on top of the 'Late Night' sundae. Here
