NBC Stands Behind Jimmy Fallon
NBC executives are standing behind Jimmy Fallon, saying that they don't believe The Tonight Show host has a drinking problem. NBC Executive Cheif Bob Greenblatt says that they are always concerned about Fallon's health and well-being. Asked if anyone has told Fallon to be more careful, Greenblatt said: "not that I'm aware off."
Fallon's' off camera antics have been gold for the tabloids. Last June, he injured a finger and was sidelined for two weeks. 2 months later he chipped a tooth. He then injured his other hand in October after tripping at an event. There was also a reported bar brawl in 2014. NBC extended Fallon's contract through 2021.
