NBC Executive Says Jimmy Fallon Doesn’t Have A Drinking Problem

On Wednesday, NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt addressed the multiple reports about Jimmy Fallon‘s excessive drinking and partying.

Greenblatt told those gathered for the Television Critics Association’s semi-annual press tour that the “Tonight Show” host is fine and the stories written in the press are “exaggerated.”

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

“Jimmy is going to be fine for many years to come,” he said. “I often say Jimmy is going to be there longer than me and longer than many of you in your jobs.” Post-panel, the exec was asked more pointedly about the reports of Fallon’s drinking habit, to which he told a smaller group of reporters: “He doesn’t have a drinking problem that any of us know about. He goes out and has fun and he’s had some accidents.” Greenblatt added, “We are always worried about his safety and health and yeah, there’s been conversations about that, [but] the stories are exaggerated about all of it.”

I hope he’s right.

Jimmy definitely needs to tread lightly going forward.
