Jimmy Fallon Hates Applause Signs on Tonight Show Set
Posted by Adam
JIMMY Fallon is getting demanding!
The funnyman hates hose flashing “APPLAUSE” signs NBC bosses hung overhead on the revamped Tonight Show set — and wants them gone, a source said.
“Jimmy was furious when he found out about the signs,” an insider said.
“He complained to execs and flatly said, ‘I don’t want them!’ He’s adamant about not using any ‘sweeteners’ because he likes the audience’s responses to be real in every sense — even insisting there be NO laugh tracks.
“NBC went ahead and installed the signs anyway, claiming all talk shows have them.
“But Jimmy’s clout’s growing along with his ratings, so it’ll be just a matter of time before he’ll be applauding their total removal!”
Recent reports claimed Jimmy insisted to his bosses at NBC that his Tonight Show audience gets to sit on the “most comfortable seats any talk show has ever had” — and he got his wish.
“NBC paid a bundle for custom-made red leather seats,” a source said.
“Each cushion costs more than $1,500. People go crazy over those seats. They’re amazing!”
