* LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON. 12:35 a.m. weekdays, NBC10. J immy Fallon is a thankful guy. His Friday night "thank-you notes" are a staple of NBC's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," but the gratitude's more than a running gag. On a recent pass through Philadelphia, where the NBC "Late Night" host schmoozed everyone from anchors to advertisers at NBC10's City Avenue studios before stopping at Dalessandro's, in Roxborough, to pick up...

New Jersey Gov. Christie said, "No chance," when asked Tuesday if he was going to run for president during an appearance on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. " Christie's popularity among Republicans nationwide has soared in recent months and he toured the country helping GOP candidates in the recent election. Fallon's show is taped in Manhattan early in the evening, but Christie didn't appear on TV screens until almost 1:30 a.m. EST - long after Jessica Simpson and Fallon played a dopey, ringtoss version of tic-tac-toe - but perhaps YouTube can help spread Christie's turn on Fallon's stage.

Felicitations were flowing like so much manna when Jimmy Fallon and Nancy Juvonen Fallon announced they had welcomed into their fold baby daughter Winnie Rose Fallon .

" Most of Fallon's colleagues didn't even know he was expecting a baby - his wife didn't look pregnant, after all. "We said, 'We're not going to tell anybody,' " Fallon said.

IF YOU WATCHED the end of "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, you saw Jimmy Fallon (returning to his old stomping grounds as host of "The Barry Gibb Talk Show") holding up a diploma. It took him long enough, but Saturday Fallon became a college graduate, 14 years after he left the College of St. Rose in Albany, N.Y., one semester short of graduation, to pursue his career. In picking up his degree in communications - a good major for a talk-show host - Fallon also spoke to fellow grads.

Taking over TV's most storied franchise, NBC's The Tonight Show , will be a breeze for Jimmy Fallon. On Monday at midnight, he's just moving across the hallway from Studio 6A to 6B and getting a lot of extra perks. (Beginning on Friday, the show will move back to its normal 11:35 p.m. slot.) The hard part came in 2009, when he was handed Late Night . Here he was, a Saturday Night Live expat coming off a dismal string of films, a guy with no hosting experience and a case of nerves so bad it was setting off seismographic monitors up in Canada.

In TV's constantly shifting landscape, there was one thing you could always count on: NBC owned the antipodes. For decades, the America day started with Today and ended with Tonight. NBC was the house that Dave Garroway and Jack Paar built. This programming Chinese finger trap benefited NBC's entire schedule. Who knows how many millions of people sat through vapid shows like Chico and the Man and Caroline in the City simply because they were too lazy to change the channel?

    THANKS to the comedic duo of Jimmy Fallon and Tina Fey, one Upper Darby family is cheesing from ear to ear. During the March 3 broadcast of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," Fallon surprised Fey - his former "Saturday Night Live" castmate and a guest that evening - on air with a large pizza from her favorite hometown spot, Pica's Restaurant in Upper Darby. The plain, rectangular pie with cheese on the dough and sauce on top has been a staple at the family-owned business since 1941, when its late founder, Frank Pica Sr., opened the original location at 62nd and Race streets, in West Philadelphia.

CAN WE TALK about Joan Rivers? Because she'd hate it if we didn't. Rivers, 81, who died yesterday at New York's Mount Sinai Hospital a week after going into cardiac arrest during vocal-cord surgery in a doctor's office, wasn't just a fashion critic with an unfiltered mouth, a QVC jewelry line and a penchant for plastic surgery. Oh, she was unapologetically all those things, as well as the author of a dozen books, including this year's Diary of a Mad Diva . But long before Rivers patrolled the red carpet, enforced style rules on E!

NO ONE ever doubted that NBC's "The Tonight Show" would go big for Jimmy Fallon's first night. But U2-on-the-roof big? That was a cool stunt. Hypothermic even. Fallon was his charming, disarming "Late Night" self in a classy new setting, dancing with Will Smith, schmoozing with Bono. And while I'm still scratching my head over Kim Kardashian's appearance in the parade of celebs, from Robert De Niro to Lady Gaga, paying off a mock bet that Fallon would never host "Tonight," the bit paid off when Fallon's time-slot rival Stephen Colbert hauled in that bucket of pennies to "welcome" him to 11:30.
