Video: Stephen Colbert Launches Emmy War Against Jimmy Fallon
Stephen Colbert has launched a major Emmy offensive against his former BFF For Six Months Jimmy Fallon. Furious that Jimmy is being pushed by NBC in the best comedy show category for the Emmys, ("only 106 days away!") Stephen has vowed to win the category this year (even though Jon Stewart usually beats him).
Stephen shows some of the marketing materials sent out to Emmy voters and expresses his outrage that there is a photo of Stephen with Jimmy in the booklet telling voters why Jimmy should win. "It's as if you're saying 'see, Stephen Colbert wants me to win, even though he's running against me in the same category.'"
Stephen continued his rant, declaring: "I gave away $26,000
of your money without your permission, and this is the
thanks I get?" Then, in retaliation for using his photo,
Stephen then proceeded to rip off Jimmy's "Thank You Notes"
comedy segment. It's very funny.
The gauntlet has been thrown down. Will Jimmy retaliate? Take a look:
