Jimmy Fallon Named Entertainer of the Year

Dec 03, 2014

Entertainment Weekly has dubbed Jimmy Fallon Entertainer of the Year in its annual "Best and Worst" issue.

In his first year as host of The Tonight Show, Fallon made the late night talk show into a viral video factory. YouTube videos of Emma Stone destroying Fallon in a lip-sync battle or Fallon, the Roots and Miley Cyrus singing an a cappella version of "We Can't Stop" became must-see clips the morning after.

Thanks to these hits, Fallon did the unthinkable and actually increased the show's ratings in 2014 from last year when Jay Leno finished hosting.
