Jimmy Fallon extends late night contract
Jimmy Fallon has extended his Tonight show deal in the US, but remains off screen in Australia.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon may not be screening in Australia but its star has just inked a new contract with NBC.
However the terms have not been disclosed in media reports.
Fallon’s current contract runs through to the end of 2021 after the network extended the deal in August 2015 for an additional three and a half years.
According to Deadline The Tonight Show is no longer the ratings leader that it used to be. Recently, Fallon’s show has been beaten in the overnights by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel Live!
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon previously screened on Foxtel through E! but ended a year ago.
