Jimmy Fallon, Stern job shake-up? Sources say NBC wants to replace 'Tonight Show' host Jay Leno with Jimmy Fallon and bring in Howard Stern to fill Fallon's old spot. NBC denies the Leno story. If Stern was to replace Fallon, he would presumably leave his job as an 'America's Got Talent' judge.
Ann Romney appeared on 'The Tonight Show,' and while she wasn't polished, she humanized Mitt quite well. The question is: Why wasn't she doing this in July? Now, it might be too late.
Audiences don't trust the news media in general, polls show, but do trust the coverage of shows they like. That is steering Obama and Romney toward softer, 'friendlier' shows to a level unprecedented in a presidential campaign.
Michelle Obama, who was a guest on Jay Leno's 'Tonight Show' Monday, recounted her trip to London for the Olympics and shared giggles with an Olympian. It was part entertainment, part campaign stop for the first lady.
