    So here's the deal:

    The Oscars want to hire Jimmy Fallon as host.

    But ABC, which airs the Oscars but can't stop the Oscars from hiring Fallon, is pissed because they don't want to give a big platform to Jimmy Kimmel's biggest rival. Plus, Fallon being showcased on ABC would piss off Kimmel and strain his relationship with the network.

    The thing is the Oscars can't use Kimmel as host because he's already hosting the Emmys, and you can't do both in the same year.

    So, here's my question: Who is Howard backing?

    Both Kimmel and Fallon are friends of the show.

    But Howard has never appeared in person on Kimmel's show in 10 years, while he's appeared on Fallon twice in the 3 years he's been on Late Night.

    I doubt he cares but I'd rather see Fallon.

    Echoing that, hasn't Kimmel been a kiss-ass friend-of-the-show longer?

    Fallon is younger, hipper, slightly cooler than Kimmel, so I think Howard would root for him.

    I think people like Howard tend to downplay loyalty over youth and coolness. It's all about the shiny new thing. It's all about the Beths of this world.

    9 years is perfectly normal.

    I think a big age differences (at least up to 20 years) isn't that abnormal.

    I mean, nobody comments on the 12-year age difference between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

    John F. Kennedy was 12 years older than Jackie, and nobody commented on their age difference.

    Incidentally, my dad is 86. My mom is 66.

    Didn't both these numbnuts pander to Stern by having Horsey on to promote her inconsequential HGTV trash? Fuck them both, may no more hosting opportunities come there way and may they rot in that Hollywood celebrity old folks home penniless and friendless for allowing that attention whore network air time.

    Yeah, Fallon is cooler, but he's small potatoes. Kimmel rocks the A-List harder, and Howard and Beth are about the A-List more than anything else.

    Didn't you post that video that Kimmel did of all those stars doing a spoof-trailer for the biggest movie of all-time? Clooney, Damon, Affleck, etc.

    You give Howard and Beth a choice between appearing in that clip or hanging out with The Roots, what do you think they'd take?

    But they're both horrible choices to host the Oscars. You need someone way bigger than either of these two. I think Seinfeld would be a good choice. Even dusting off Steve Martin would be a better choice than either Kimmel or Fallon. Even Leno's not right for it.

    You know who might could do it? It would be a nutty choice, but the guy is borderline A-list, and he's been around the block and back: Robert Downey Jr. He could definitely throw in a few interesting anecdotes, that's for sure.

    Both shows are pretty bad. Letterman is the only one with a genuine comedic style and an ounce of personality, but his overall show is a little dull. Conan used to be pretty good before he went off the TBS deep end. And Leno is a retarded mongoloid who is only around because there are some good bits on his show (created by either Howard or Leno's writers blah blah blah who cares).

    Howard's gonna go with Jimmy Kimmel, in my opinion. Because he throws the party w/ the celebs, plus they go on vacation together, intimate stuff he doesn't do with Fallon.
