Jimmy Fallon Blames NBC For Being Stingy, Squandering His Glee-tastic Emmy Opening
Instead of enjoying the fruits of his successful Emmy-hosting labor, Jimmy Fallon is stewing over NBC's refusal to secure the online repurposing rights to Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." Because of this legal oversight, NBC is unable to post Jimmy's Glee-ful Emmy opening -- the highlight of the telecast -- online.
"That could have been worth 500,000 hits on NBC.com," the technology-forward host told Daily Variety yesterday. "People are looking for it. We worked so hard on it and it's our own network, and it's a good commercial for our network. It's so simple, just pay for it." For now, watch Jon Hamm fist pump, Tina Fey dirty dance, and Lost's Hurley burn calories here. [Variety]
