Jimmy Fallon

NBC Threatens Celebs ...

It's Fallon or the Highway

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.

Hot Mom ...

or HOT MESS?!


Your mom may have been embarrassing, but could you imagine one of these moms dropping you off at school?! Pam Anderson, for example ...

From Fox 411: "Pammy is really good about attending her boys' sporting events, but she doesn't exactly fit in with the other soccer moms."

Such BS. This would NEVER happen. The celebrities make these shows not the host, idiots. The viewers tune in to be closer to their favorite celebrities and they will watch them on ANY show. This is not happening and it doesn't matter how pop culturally entertaining Fallon has become (and it's because he's so YOUNG). TMZ, you're really bottom feeding idiots for the most part. Stories about nothing. What's next, Fallon and Lorne run underground orgies??

Somebody is not doing their homework. The recent ratings show Jimmy Kimmel is gaining more viewers than the Tonight Show and Kimmel was in rerun! For NBC to even suggest banning celebs from appearing on ABC and CBS make me want to watch Kimmel and Letterman even more. Fallon is annoying and should take some interviewing notes from Howard Stern.

Weak sauce. Good luck with it, NBC. There will be A listers who will have no part in this, and NBC will still get on their knees to get them to go on Fallon.

I like Fallon and he can be funny at times. But after watching his recent stint- I don't get it? How is he getting all these viewers to tune in. I found it kinda boring.

Lol. Jimmy Fallon is a kiss azz and tool. Just proves NBC knows that they have to pull dirty tricks in order to give Fallon higher ratings otherwise he will just be another late night talk show. Kimmel is far funnier and many A list celebs are friends with him and won't be told where they can appear. NBC has bought Fallon's ratings. Obvious to everyone.

Jimmy is a nice guy but his show is boring. I prefer Conan and Craig Ferguson.
