Michael J. Fox Mines His Parkinson's Disease for Laughs on New NBC Show

Originally posted 08/13/2013 01:30PM

Can Parkinson's disease be funny?

Michael J. Fox, who was diagnosed with the disease in 1991, sure thinks so.

"I have challenges that come with Parkinson's but my experience is to deal with things through humor," he explains in a first look at his much-anticipated new NBC show.

The Michael J. Fox Show stars Fox, 52, as Mike Henry, a family-oriented New York news anchor who quits after his Parkinson's diagnosis. But much like the real-life Fox, Henry eventually decides to get back to work – although he doesn't want to make a big deal about it.

Michael J. Fox at Center of NBC's Fall Lineup

Originally posted 05/13/2013 03:15PM

Advertisers were given their first big glimpse of the fall TV schedule Monday as NBC launched the annual Upfront Week in Manhattan. The upfronts are lavish (and longish) network presentations staged for the ad community with the hope of vacuuming up all their money with the promise of great, popular shows.

The truth is, of course, that few shows manage to be great and/or popular. One could even call this a sad truth.

But, to be philosophical, nothing ventured, nothing gained – and NBC could use some gaining. After applying advanced critical theorem to the brief clips presented at Radio City Music Hall, I would say these shows showed the most potential:

Seth Meyers Will Replace Jimmy Fallon as Host of Late Night

It's official!

Seth Meyers will replace Jimmy Fallon as the host of Late Night.

"We think Seth is one of the brightest, most insightful comedy writers and performers of his generation. His years at SNL's 'Weekend Update' desk, not to mention being head writer of the show for many seasons, helped him hone a topical brand of comedy that is perfect for the Late Night franchise," NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt said Sunday.

Jimmy Fallon: It's His Time, Says PEOPLE's TV Critic

Originally posted 04/03/2013 06:00PM

Earlier this week, NBC Tonight Show host Jay Leno and Late Night host Jimmy Fallon engaged in a charming little skit – a duet of "Tonight" from West Side Story, with novelty lyrics that reflected the growing media speculation (bordering on certainty) that Leno would soon be forced to give his spot to Fallon.

Tonight, Tonight, why do they say we fight?
I like you, you like me, we're okay!
Tonight, Tonight, who cares who hosts
Tonight?
People just watch online the next day

The unstated irony of this little song is that, at least in West Side Story, one of those singers ends up dead. Now we know which one.

Jimmy vs. Jay: Is Fallon's Tonight Takeover Set for Fall?

Jimmy Fallon to Replace Jay Leno on Tonight: Report

Originally posted 03/21/2013 07:15AM

Not only is NBC planning a new host for The Tonight Show, but a new home, too – though neither will be particularly unfamiliar to viewers of late night.

Despite his present high ratings, when the show's long-running host Jay Leno's contract expires in the fall of 2014, he will be succeeded by current Late Night host Jimmy Fallon, 38, reports Thursday's The New York Times.

Furthermore, according to the paper, once the shift takes place, the program will move back to New York – the original home to the show, starting in 1954, with Steve Allen, and then, Jack Paar, as host, until 1972, when Johnny Carson (who took over in 1962) moved the show west, where it has remained ever since.
