Jimmy Fallon, host of the Emmys Primetime Awards this Sunday, August 29, 2010, tells Deadline.com that he hasn’t been restricted in what he can say and that "we have a couple of ideas with Conan."
While Fallon didn’t say what those ideas are involving Conan O’Brien, he added he believes the former NBC late-night talk-show host will attend the event.
As for rival Jay Leno, "We’re not sure right now" whether he’ll be there, although Fallon says he hopes he’ll attend. "No one’s telling me anything like, don’t go here, don’t talk about Conan [O’Brien]," Fallon says. "We’ll touch on the stuff the network’s gone through. We’ll probably have a couple of jokes in there about all of the late-night stuff. You can’t not talk about it."
