“Late Night” host Jimmy Fallon will appear on “Piers Morgan Tonight” this evening, and according the preview below he’ll be dishing on some not-so-current events: the late night war of 2010.
In the interview, Fallon opens up about the battle between NBC, Conan O’Brien and Jay Leno over hosting “The Tonight Show,” saying for him it was “almost like watching your family fight.”
Fallon, like Jimmy Kimmel and Craig Ferguson, served as a bystander during the feud and offered thoughts on both sides to Morgan. When asked if the fight’s catalyst was NBC telling Leno they’d replace him as host of “The Tonight Show” in five years, Fallon agreed:
“That right there for me, I’d be like, that’s an insult.”
But he also supported Conan, saying he felt bad for him but that he doesn’t specifically blame Leno.
“[Conan] wanted his shot at ‘The Tonight Show,’ and I don’t know if he got a fair shake,” Fallon said.
The full interview airs tonight, Wednesday June 15, at 9:00 p.m. on CNN.
