If you’re a fan of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon or The Colbert Report (or both), you know the two hosts are in the middle of a feud that threatens their ‘six-month friendship.’
Colbert has slammed Fallon for using a photo of his recent appearance on Late Night in Emmy promotional materials, when the two hosts compete in the same category. Colbert even took Fallon to task in a spoof of his “Thank You Notes” segment, which is now a New York Times best-selling book.
Fallon responded to Colbert’s accusations last night on Late Night, doing a little spoofing of his own. Here’s how it all went down:
I love this.
Kudos to Stephen Colbert for seeing an opportunity to create some late night mischief, and to Jimmy Fallon for lobbing the ball right back at him. I hope the two keep this ‘feud’ going throughout the Emmy nomination process, the awards show and beyond.
With a fight this good, they might just have a chance at snatching that Emmy away from Jon Stewart.
You know…it kinda makes The Sticky Egg wanna get into a feud with another blog. Gonna start looking around today.
I’m itching for a fake fight myself.

Move over, Jon Stewart. Stephen Colbert, this is the word:
Brian Williams, anchor of “NBC Nightly News.”
We know he’s funny. He was the first news anchor invited to host “Saturday Night Live” …and he killed it. Now he’s popping up everywhere, adding his dry wit all over the television lineup.
In case your DVR isn’t quite as active as mine — hey, TV viewing makes you more well-rounded — here are some choice scenes from recent weeks you may have missed.
- On last night’s “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” Brian ‘slow jammed’ the news headlines with Jimmy and the Roots. See how Brian counters a shot at his manhood from Jimmy.
- Last Thursday, Brian popped up again on Jimmy Fallon, this time to pay homage to guest Jon Hamm. (Apparently, Brian is a big “Mad Man” fan.) The entire episode is online; Jon pops up — complete with Brian cameo — at the 19:00 mark.
- Brian even crossed the aisle and visited “Late Show with David Letterman” last month, where David tortured him about doing Jay Leno. Be sure and watch the entire clip — the ending is classic.
I’ve even spied him doing shtick on the plaza on “Today.” A cameo from Brian is a hit every time.
Brian, if it were up to me, you would be the host for tonight’s season premiere of “Saturday Night Live”…but since the show went another way, I’ll just have to keep my fingers crossed that you’ll ‘pop up’ later this year.

So, you’re audible.com‘s marketing team, and you’ve come up with this clever advertising campaign for the banner ads in the New York City subway cars.
“Stephen King reads Stephen King on audible.com”
“Toni Morrison reads Toni Morrison on audible.com”
“Stephen Colbert reads Stephen Colbert on audible.com”
Awesome. Your favorite authors reading their own bestselling works on audible.com. What a simple yet effective way to get readers to check out the website.
But as I’m reading all the ads lining my subway car, I notice that one of them takes a slightly different tack:
“Sean Penn reads Bob Dylan on audible.com”
What is this? Bob Dylan isn’t reading his own work? Why so ever not? Doesn’t Bob like to read? Or maybe…no one could understand a single word the man says!?!
Bob Dylan mumbles and mutters so badly these days, you’d think he was speaking a different language. Even when I know what words he’s supposed to be saying, I still can’t understand him.
I’m just glad audible.com didn’t have Dylan record the audio simply to save face. That would have been a waste of time and digital recording space.
You don’t need to hear Dylan’s voice to learn from his cautionary tale…right, kids?
