Jimmy Fallon Refuses to Take a Side in NBC Late-Night Shakeup (VIDEO)

While the rest of late-night has been critical of Jay Leno's assumed role in the rejiggering of NBC's after-hours lineup -- Conan O'Brien and David Letterman have been unapologetic for jokes about Leno, and Jimmy Kimmel performed an entire show dressed as Leno -- Jimmy Fallon seems to prefer a middle-of-the-road approach and not take sides.

"It's kind of weird, because these are two of my heroes and two of my friends," Fallon said of O'Brien and Leno, who are both vying for NBC's 11:35PM time slot. "Leno, I was on his show so many times, before I was even at this job. And then, when I got the job, he gave me so much advice, as did Conan ... Conan O'Brien, if he didn't kick ass here for 17 years, I wouldn't be here. I wouldn't have a job."
