Jimmy Fallon’s ‘erratic behavior’ left ‘Tonight Show’ employees in a ‘constant state of fear’: report

Current and former employees of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” are claiming the NBC production has been a “toxic workplace” for years and the show’s host repeatedly engaged in “erratic behavior” that left staffers in constant fear.

According to a Rolling Stone report, two current and 14 former employees said the show’s working environment has been “far outside the boundaries” of what one would consider normal in the high-pressure television landscape.

“It’s a bummer because it was my dream job,” one former employee said. “Writing for late night is a lot of people’s dream jobs, and they’re coming into this, and it becomes a nightmare very quickly. It’s sad that it’s like that, especially knowing that it doesn’t have to be that way.”

The anonymous sources said the “ugly” behind-the-scenes environment began at the top, with Fallon displaying “erratic” behavior that led to constant shake-ups in the show’s leadership teams.
