NBC Chairman Say Jimmy Fallon Doesn’t Have A Drinking Problem, But … Come On

The king of late night next morning viral web content, Jimmy Fallon, has been in the news lately for a string of incidents involving injuries where he was (probably) under the influence of alcohol.

There was the finger thing and, more recently, the other finger thing, and probably some other shit, too.

It’s bad enough to have people speculating that Fallon has a problem with alcohol. In fact, it’s gotten so rampant, the chairman of NBC issued a statement on it today.

From Entertainment Weekly:

NBC Entertainment chief Bob Greenblatt attempted to dispute tabloid reports about The Tonight Show host by telling reporters Wednesday that Fallon “doesn’t have a drinking problem that any of us know about.”

“He goes out and has fun. He’s had some accidents,” said Greenblatt, who chatted with reporters after his annual press conference at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena on Wednesday. “Aside from that, he’s in better shape than he’s ever been.”

Here are some videos of Jimmy Kimmel partying after the SNL40 special.

Come on. Jimmy Fallon doesn’t have an alcohol problem. Jimmy Fallon’s got a cocaine problem.
