Now that it seems likely that The Tonight Show will return to New York with Jimmy Fallon as its new host, the question is whether a new round of booking wars will emerge between NBC and CBS’ The Late Show with David Letterman. Up until now, the east and west coast locales for the late-night shows have made it relatively easy for publicists: New York-based actors do David Letterman, Los Angeles-based ones visit Jay Leno and the Hollywood-based Jimmy Kimmel. But a new Manhattan-based locale for The Tonight Show would not only reinvigorate the NBC franchise but potentially force actors to make a hard choices: Do you ignore a beloved veteran like Letterman to sit on Fallon’s couch?

Joe Carroll may be a cult-leading killer — but he’s also a dad. (Disturbing.)
And in next Monday’s episode of The Following, Joe is going to put his best dad-foot forward during a mini-father-son bonding session involving s’mores.
As you’ll see in the exclusive clip below, the moment in question really shows a side of Joe we’ve never seen before…
It looks like there’s a reason why Jay Leno’s been sounding awfully testy about his bosses lately: A report in the New York Times today says it has promised Jimmy Fallon that he will succeed Jay Leno as the next host of The Tonight Show no later than fall 2014.
The plan is to move the show from Burbank, Calif. to New York, where Fallon currently tapes his show. There is also talk of it returning to a 90-minute format.
It’s unclear when an announcement will take place, and for now, NBC is only confirming that it is building a brand new set for Fallon. READ FULL STORY »

‘THE OFFICE’: HAPPY ENDING FOR ANDY/ERIN?
When Erin first came on the scene at the Office, I was convinced they were setting her up to be Mrs. Andy Bernard. But their romance has certainly unfolded differently than I expected, especially in the last few weeks, as we saw Erin break it off with Andy so she could be with Pete.
But will the two find their way back to each other before the end of the season? READ FULL STORY »

How do you bring an iconic, nearly decade-old comedy series to a close? That was the huge task assigned to Office showrunner and executive producer Greg Daniels, and as one might expect, he didn’t take the responsibility lightly.
“There are so many great characters that we all really cared about, so the biggest task was finding a story structure where they could have stories inside of it that would pay off and fit it all into the time frame,” he told EW last night at the show’s series-finale wrap party, which took place just hours after the show shot its final scene. “These characters have been in my head taking up room for 10 years … so it was personally important to me that I figure out what their end and closure was.”
Mission accomplished, at least according to Daniels’ cast. “Erin has a spectacular end that I can’t really tell you about,” teased Ellie Kemper. “It involves some amazing people that I also can’t tell you about, but I’m really happy with how we see her in the last episode. … Basically my wishes for her send-off came true.” READ FULL STORY »
