|Michelle Obama, Jimmy Fallon. |
(I hope to God you knew that already, though.)
It wouldn't surprise if Fallon has a firm two-year on-air guarantee with one of those wicked penalty clauses…like if they take him off before 104 weeks are up, he gets a million a week for every week he isn't on. Or something like that. (You can bet he has a time slot guarantee and they won't try moving his show to Midnight.)Not that Mark is saying anything to the contrary, but I think Fallon doesn't need to worry about a two-year deal. He's going to host The Tonight Show for nothing less than 10 years. Late night talk shows will expire before his run does.
