The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon has enthralled America and beyond because of its giggly mumbly man-child star, Jimmy Fallon.
Jimmy's segment is always packed with hilarious stints and sketches that cut through all different shades of humor and appeal to every man, woman or child who takes the time to watch.
However, over the past year Jimmy has caused growing concern for his off-screen antics. Some people are now wondering whether Fallon is doing alright.
For example, in October 2015, Jimmy went to the hospital after slipping and falling onto smashed pieces of glass.
“I threw the bottle and then I landed on broken glass. There [were] pools of blood everywhere.”
Despite the worrying photos and footage, the folks at NBC do not seem too concerned. Chairman Bob Greenblatt doesn't think that Fallon has a drinking problem, despite the brewing speculation since his off-screen escapades have come to light. Greenblatt describes it as the following:
"He goes out and has fun. He’s had some accidents. Aside from that, he’s in better shape than he’s ever been.”
He did also admit that NBC is aware of what is being discussed about Jimmy and alcoholism:
“Always, we are worried about his safety. There’s been conversations about that. The stories are exaggerated about this.”
At least if the boss is happy then we will be seeing a lot more of Jimmy in months or hopefully years to come.
“Jimmy will be with us for years to come [...] perhaps long after I leave NBC and some of you leave your jobs.”
I'm definitely looking forward to grandpa Jimmy doing his thing on The Tonight Show. In all seriousness, I hope what the chairman of the NBC is saying is true, because it would be awful to think that everyone's favorite funny guy was suffering in private.
