The fate of The Tonight Show is unclear.
Jimmy Fallon and his late-night show's cast of characters created the ultimate Empire spoof Tuesday, titled Jimpire, and it is everything. Unsure of whom to leave his "Jimpire" to, Fallon channeled his best Terrence Howard to determine who would be the best comedic heir to his show.
"Well, with my finger being in the condition it is, who knows what could happen tomorrow?" said Fallon, explaining why he needed to choose an heir. "I could stub my toe. I could bite my tongue. I could burn the roof of my mouth on a hot microwave pizza."
"The point is I need to entrust my legacy to someone," he added, using Howard's classic intonation.
His options included Questlove, drummer of The Roots, Tariq of the same band, and Fallon's "business-savvy-yet-moody show producer," Andre. But then a fourth option showed up: Steve Higgins, now known as "Higgy."
