Jay Leno Continues to Poke Fun at NBC Execs

Photo by Kevin Winter/Tonight Show/Getty Images for The Tonight Show(NEW YORK) -- Jay Leno isn't letting up on the jokes targeting his NBC bosses.

The Tonight Show host has repeatedly poked fun at network executives on his late-night program over the past week, especially in light of reports that NBC wants to replace him with Jimmy Fallon next year.

Leno told his studio audience during Friday's edition of The Tonight Show that he'd had dinner with NBC executives, who offered to "make it up to me." He joked, "They are sending my wife and I on an all-expenses-paid Carnival Cruise," alluding to the company's recent mishaps, including the engine fire on the Carnival Triumph last month that stranded passengers in the Gulf of Mexico for days.

Leno also made light of reports regarding a Canadian man who'd had a knife pulled from his back after three years, saying, "He must have worked at NBC, too."

NBC has only confirmed that it is building a new studio in New York for Fallon, the current host of Late Night.

Lindsay Lohan Gives Messy Makeover on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon"

Jonathan Leibson/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Lindsay Lohan made a surprise cameo on NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Wednesday night.

Taking part in a recurring bit called "Let Us Play with Your Look," Lohan wore sunglasses, a short white skirt and matching top, and a platinum bob wig to match one worn by Jimmy Fallon for the scene, which had her lead an audience member to the stage and slather goop all over his hair.

The bit ended, as it always does, with Fallon's singing character passing out.  Lohan walked off stage, her hands covered in white glop, and pretended she couldn't find the slit in the curtain to make her exit.

Lohan, who's scheduled to make an appearance next Tuesday on NBC's The Tonight Show, didn't talk during the sketch.  Her Lifetime movie Liz & Dick premieres Nov. 25.

Jimmy Fallon 'Nervous and Excited' to Host 'SNL' This Weekend

Lloyd Bishop/NBC(NEW YORK) -- Jimmy Fallon has made cameos on Saturday Night Live since leaving its cast in 2004, but this weekend will mark the first time he's hosted the popular NBC program. He says he's "nervous and excited" about the opportunity because his rise to fame began on SNL.

Fallon, who now hosts a late-night show on NBC, says the final SNL episode that airs before Christmas is always special for the cast. He explains, "Everyone's in a good mood, the audience is great 'cause a lot of people are tourists, they went shopping, they're smiling."

Fallon will be joined on SNL this weekend by musical guest Michael Buble.

The Boss to Perform on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'

Billboard reports that Springsteen will play songs from his forthcoming box set The Promise: The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story, which is also out on the 16th.  He'll also chat with Fallon and discuss the contents of the box set, which includes six discs of music and previously unseen behind-the-scenes and live footage.

Springsteen's appearance on Fallon's show may be a way to show the talk show host his appreciation.  At the recent Primetime Emmy Awards, which Fallon hosted, he channeled The Boss when he performed Springsteen's classic song "Born to Run" in a Glee-style sing-along to open the show.
