Jimmy Fallon talks challenges of Emmy, ‘Tonight Show’ hosting

HollywoodNews.com: When it comes to a potential future as a “Tonight Show” host, “Late Night” yakker Jimmy Fallon isn’t jumping up and down for the job.

Speaking to journalists at a TCA panel for “Late Night” and the 62nd primetime Emmys, the Hollywood Reporter overheard Fallon exclaiming, “The one thing I’ve learned from [Conan O’Brien and David Letterman] is hosting ‘Late Night’ is a one-way ticket to not hosting ‘The Tonight Show.’”

Fallon, however, will be hosting the upcoming Emmy telecast.

Commenting on the upcoming gig, Fallon said, “I want the TV Academy to be happy, I want [producer] Don Mischner to be happy…I don’t want to make anybody uncomfortable.”

Some award show hosts in the past, who also had their own talk series, have earned a reputation for rubbing celebrity audiences the wrong way. Both David Letterman and Chris Rock failed to earn feathers during their previous Oscar host jobs.

“You have to relate to different people as well,” Fallon said about appealing to both TV and industry crowds at the Emmys, “I gotta get you to laugh and you to laugh and you to laugh — they don’t all laugh the same thing.”
