No matter which late-night talk show you fancy, it’s hard to argue that The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon hasn’t cornered the market on the fun factor. Fallon loves to play games, and he has incorporated this infatuation into his talk show. One could even make an argument that the games are the best part of the show.
Music based games such as “Wheel of Musical Impressions,” and “History of Rap” have kept the guests, the live audience, and the viewers thoroughly entertained, and they’re going to continue to do so, but on a larger scale. NBC has ordered a new series that is based off the games Fallon plays on his talk show and will be called That’s My Jam. The network has given the go ahead on a 10-episode first season, with each episode being an hour long.
President, Alternative and Reality Group for NBC Entertainment, Meredith Ahr:
“Jimmy reinvented the late-night genre with his one-of-a-kind celebrity game segments that show our favorite stars at their most clever, creative and relaxed. We’re thrilled to bring viewers a new set of games and create a weekly party that is just as much fun to watch as it is to play along.”
Here’s what Jimmy Fallon had to say on the matter.
“We love playing these games on the show and it’ll be fun to see it taken to the next level,
Not the first game from The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to be given a promotion as Lip Sync Battle has the honor of being the first to make jump to it’s own series. As you may have seen glimpses of in the games played on the show, Jimmy Fallon is actually quite talented when it comes to music, and has taken his ability to impersonate the likes of Bob Dylan and Neil Young and performed full cover song parodies, a couple of examples can be found below.
