THE DEADLINE TEAM
Deadline.comApril 2, 2013

UPDATE: If this isn’t a shameless play for late-night ratings by both hosts, hard to imagine what is. Tonight NBC released this video early of Jimmy Fallon and Jay Leno addressing those rumors of who will take over as host of The Tonight Show. (Fallon seems to answer them by asking Jay, “Are we still friends?”) Anyway, the two sing (um, lip-sync) a duet of their version of the ballad ”Tonight” from West Side Story. The network flacks point out “this video marks the first time both shows have collaborated on one piece that aired as a seamless bridge between them”. Oh barf:
