Jimmy Fallon on potentially hosting "The Tonight Show": "Buzz is not coming from me...I like being where I am"

Coming up this evening, Jimmy Fallon brings his incomparable comedic skills and hysterical Rolodex of celebrity impersonations to "Piers Morgan Tonight" for a primetime exclusive interview.

Currently in his fourth season as host of NBC's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," the 37-year-old addresses the idea of possibly switching to another time slot:

"There is a growing little buzz around town that maybe it's time you were on a little earlier, on NBC, like 11:30 or something," suggests Piers Morgan, referencing the position presently occupied by "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

"Buzz is not coming from me. I like being where I am," says Fallon. "Doesn't matter to me."

While Fallon admits he would not turn down the famed "The Tonight Show" were it offered to him, he insists the quality of the work supersedes the hour in which it airs:

"Time slots don't matter to me, especially that late at night," says the "Saturday Night Live" alum. "You do the show, and you work hard, keep your head down, have fun with it."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in this evening at 9 p.m. as Fallon rolls out impressions of Bruce Springsteen, Barack Obama, and Jerry Seinfeld, and also explains why he blames fellow late-night host David Letterman for the name of his current program.

    i refused to watch the program last night. i don't want to see her face, don't want to hear her say she didn't do it, don't want to think how she got away with murder. if there is a movie made i will boycott any sponsors, any studio, anyone who has anything to do with it.

    I think Fallon would be wise to stay-put until the Tonight Show position opens up instead of trying to force the issue as Conan did. When Fallon first took over Conan's spot he was very week but I have noticed tremendous improvement – for example Fallon is much more diciplined, e.g. doesn't crack up in the middle of a joke. His annunciation is getting clearer – when he first went on he seemed to mumble his lines. He is definitely talented as a singer and impersonator (something neither Leno or Letterman can do) and he delivery of stand-up lines is as good as the rest. I really think that Fallon is the obvious heir apparent for Leno and in time he could be the late night host who comes the closest to matching Johnny Carson.
