NBC Entertainment chief Bob Greenblatt disputed tabloid rumours while talking with reporters after his annual press conference at the Television Critics Association press tour, stating: “He goes out and has fun. He’s had some accidents. Aside from that, he’s in better shape than he’s ever been.”;

Greenblatt also acknowledged that the accident-prone host’s health is of huge importance to the network.

“We are always worried about his safety and health,” he said. “There’s been conversations about that. The stories are exaggerated about all of it. I don’t know to what extent. I haven’t been part of it. I don’t have those conversations with Jimmy Fallon.”
