Interactive youth channel joiz will take The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to German TV screens.
Viewers will be able to watch the US late night show from April 14, 2014, from Monday to Thursday at 22.00 CET on the day after its US broadcast in the original version. In February, award-winning comedian Jimmy Fallon took over the show from Jay Leno who presented the Tonight Show for 22 years.
“The Tonight Show has been an institution in American TV entertainment for almost 60 years, but it is nevertheless perfectly suited for joiz with its new presenter Jimmy Fallon,” Jennifer Mival, programme director of joiz in Germany, commented on the channel’s first international programme acquisition.
“Jimmy Fallon already has a loyal German fan community who celebrates and comments on his latest YouTube clips with international stars,” said Mival. “We now give these fans the possibility to watch Fallon on German and Swiss free-to-air television in full length.”
The previous guests of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon include celebrities like Justin Timberlake, Michelle Obama, Will Smith, Shakira, Lady Gaga and Russell Crowe.
