Jimmy Fallon Stokes ‘Empire’ Anticipation With 10-Minute ‘Jimpire’ Parody


Jimmy Fallon will stop at nothing to protect his Tonight Show empire.His “Jimpire,” as he calls it, is in constant jeopardy. He could hurt his finger, “bite his tongue [or] burn the roof of his mouth on a microwave pizza” at any time.

Jimpire, Fallon’s newest digital-first sketch, is an extended Empire parody, out just in time for the return of Fox’s headlining series tonight. Empire stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson make appearances, meeting their late-night counterparts —Jimmy and Higgins, respectively.
