FOX’s hit drama Empire returns tonight for a second season, so last night the show got spoofed big-time on The Tonight Show by Jimmy Fallon, The Roots, Steve Higgins in leopard print, and a little help from some very special guests. The result, of course, is “Jimpire,“ a soap-opera-level drama that takes you behind the scenes of the biggest show on late night TV.
“Jimpire” highlights all the hardest parts of hosting a big show like The Tonight Show, from the joke-telling to the finger-spraining, and asks important questions, like when Jimmy Fallon stubs his toe next, who has the chops to serve as the heir to The Tonight Show on NBC? To find out, watch “Jimpire,” Wednesday nights on FOX. Oops, we mean right now on YouTube.
