Jimmy Fallon is a Gleek: 'It's the best show on television'

Posted on

Jimmy Fallon is a busy guy thanks to his nightly gig as host of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (which celebrates its one-year anniversary on March 2!). But Fallon still makes time for his favorite TV shows which include Lost, Survivor, and, yes, Glee. In fact, you could call Fallon a Gleek. “I think Glee is the best show on television,” says the host. “It’s so good!” Fallon particularly loved the fall finale when Lea Michele belted out “Don’t Rain on My Parade.” Says Fallon, “When she did that Barbra Streisand song, I freaked out! I freaked out! I was like this is better than Barbra.” But he stresses that he’s a fan of Glee‘s entire ensemble. “Everyone’s got such an interesting face on that show,” he says. “I love everyone’s face! I could watch these guys forever.”

Fallon loved Glee so much in fact that it inspired Late Night‘s newest comedy spoof, 6-bee, which features its own elaborate music number (and a cameo by SNL‘s Abby Elliot). It’s pretty awesome. Watch below…

Do you like Fallon even more now that he’s admitted his Gleek status, PopWatchers? What do you think of 6-bee?
