Jimmy Fallon on 'Ellen' about 'Tonight Show': 'I'd love to do it whenever Jay's ready'
Ellen: "With everything that went on with Jay and with Conan, do you think about that, if that ever got offered to you? To me, that's a scary situation after what happened with Jay and Conan but if they offered that to you, would you go into that time slot?"
Jimmy: "I'm the third person because Letterman did this time slot and then he went to CBS. Then Conan did this time slot and he's at TBS. So I think if there's a lesson to be learned, if you do this, you're guaranteed not to host 'The Tonight Show.' [ laughs] Of course I'd love to do it whenever Jay's ready, if Jay wants to retire. I love being at 12:30. It's a comforting time slot because it's so late at night. I think I'm on at like 12:37 at night which [targets] college kids and convicts. And my parents. They're the only people watching so I'm very comfortable with it. I'm just really having fun and I'm learning what I'm doing."
Ellen: "Well, you just get better and better. I've always adored you from Saturday Night live. I think you're hilarious."
