NYP– He’s one of NBC’s biggest success stories — keeping “The Tonight Show” at the top of the late-night ratings with bouncy show tunes and campy games. Now Jimmy Fallon is also one of NBC’s biggest worries. On Oct. 24, Fallon was stitched up at a hospital in Cambridge, Mass., after falling — and dropping a bottle of Jägermeister — while receiving the Harvard Lampoon’s Elmer Award for Excellence in Humor. “I threw the bottle and then I landed on broken glass,” a bandaged Fallon recapped on his show the following Monday. “There [were] pools of blood everywhere.” It’s the party guy’s third injury in four months, and sources say NBC is worried that Fallon’s drinking has become excessive. And while they’re not doing anything about it — yet — “It’s gone from being a whisper to a chatter,” says one industry insider of Fallon’s over-the-top behavior. In June, the 41-year-old comedian nearly severed his finger after tripping on a rug at his luxe Gramercy Park pad and catching his wedding ring on a countertop. Prior to that injury, he had been out dining and posing with wine-drinking fans at Upper East Side Italian restaurant Scalinatella.
The consecutive injuries come on the heels of a seemingly endless parade of Page Six mentions chronicling the after-hours antics of the host, who is married to Nancy Juvonen (co-owner with Drew Barrymore of the production company Flower Films) and has two daughters, both under 2 years old. There was April 2014 at the East Village dive bar Niagara, where Fallon was allegedly involved in a brawl after a Thursday night taping of “The Tonight Show.” (The next evening, he managed to rally and partied at a Chelsea watering hole until the early morning, buying shots of vodka for the entire bar.)
I have said it once, I will say it a million times. I can’t stand Jimmy Fallon, I really feel like he is the worst. Sure he has some really great skits, I will give him that but him in general, the worst. During all of the interviews he does he interrupts his guests, laughs at his own jokes, and ruins almost every skit by laughing for five minutes straight. I would take Kimmel or Conan over him any time.
This is all from the New York Post and you know that you can only trust about half of what they have to say but there is probably something there. Jimmy explained his latest injury was because a woman bent down in front of him and he tripped. I don’t think it really matters because he fell with a giant bottle of Jager in his hands.
So please, I need to know what people think of this. Do you think that he is a bit of a liability because he is constantly getting hurt when alcohol is involved? To me his friendship with Justin Timberlake can only save him for so long.
