Yup. That was like reaching the summit at Everest and finding out that it's made of bacon.

In Jeff Dunham's book he wrote a great narrative of his quest to appear on the Tonight Show.

NBC is coming down like a hammer on celebs who want to get on Jimmy Fallon's show ... if they dare do a show on CBS or ABC ... they can forget about "The Tonight Show."

Sources connected to CBS, NBC and ABC tell TMZ ... the Peacock network believes Jimmy Fallon's ratings success gives them extreme bargaining power. They put the word out to celebs, agents and publicists ... if they want to be on Fallon they can't appear on ANY other network ... and not just shows that go head-to-head with Jimmy, but morning shows as well.

We're told NBC is saying the stars who go on Fallon are also allowed to appear on "Today," "Dateline" and any similar shows they air, but that's it.

A GMA source tells TMZ ... they've already gotten fallout from people they were trying to book.

Fallon is dominating late night .... crushing Jimmy Kimmel by bringing in more than twice the number of viewers.

I would think this would backfire but maybe their hand really is that strong.

I agree that it will backfire. Fallon's lead is due to his newness. Let's see what the ratings look like in 90 days and if NBC still has leverage then.

Also, the summer blockbuster promotion season is coming up. Does NBC really want the studios to have to decide between promoting their movies only on NBC properties or everywhere else?

And is NBC really going to play hardball on this with A-listers? If George Clooney or Tom Cruise or Jennifer Lawrence do Letterman or Kimmel, is NBC really going to ban them from Fallon? I think this just shows more of the stupidity of NBC's management.

Another one comes to mind is Michelle Obama. Brian Williams and David Brokaw are regulars on Dave; I wonder if that will stop.

I watched CBS Evening news tonight - they ran the Tonight Show boycott (or maybe exclusion is a better name) as one of the lead news stories.

“Letterman’s people aren’t taking the leftovers,” the source said.
Thus far, however, Letterman’s bookers haven’t turned down any powerful A-listers who have paid a visit to Fallon.

Put me in the dumb move by NBC camp as well.
Fallon's ratings were record breaking when he was following the Olympics but they've been falling significantly since the Olympics ended.
Now part of that should have been expected. Last week, Fallon averaged a 2.2 in demo.
This week, Fallon appears to be pulling 1.3-1.4 in demo in the 25 markets with Local People Meters.
(Admittedly, not exactly an apples to apples comparison.)

Is Michaels going to start banning people from SNL as well?

Read The Late Shift. Helen Kushnick used to do the same thing for Leno.

Sounds like history repeating itself. This same ploy was tried by Leno's folks when he took over the Tonight Show from Carson and it famously backfired.

Edit: walked away from the keyboard while TB was typing his reply.

Exactly. As I recall is was among the many reasons she ultimately got canned.

I've been looking around for Late night alternatives and have settled on Chelsea Lately as the best of the best - here's an article speculating she may jump to Netflix

Quote:
Can Chelsea Handler Change Late-Night TV by Jumping to Netflix?
"Chelsea Lately" host Chelsea Handler is about to become a free agent, and she told Howard Stern she's interested in leaving cable and going to Netflix.

Thanks for the heads up. Looks like it's something he announces on the show that will air tonight. I'll make sure to record it and see what he says.
