For a week, Fallon retakes the lead from Colbert

"I don't know if you knew this, but I was in Russian Federation last week. Hardcore fans, apparently. They followed me everywhere". He explained that he and his crew returned from Moscow Sunday night, that he was still on Russian time, and that he would show some of the several segments he shot there in coming weeks.

And Colbert gave him one-sort of. I'm in Russia. If the "tapes" exist, I'll bring you back a copy! "It's 'I" as in 'I don't believe anyone calls you 'T!' You can't give yourself a nickname!" "Oh wait, somebody's already got that covered".


- "That's me in front of St. Petersburg Winter Palace".

Jimmy Fallon has bested Stephen Colbert in the ratings for the first time since the week before Donald Trump's inauguration. "I thought it would be better to cut out the middleman and just tell the Russians myself", he said during that interview. He offered a clarification on the show though: "To be clear, all I said in the clip there is that I was considering a run". If I decide to run, obviously, I'm not gonna ask the Russians to help my campaign. O.K.? While Trump has stated he didn't think Russian Federation was involved, he now blames former President Barack Obama. "Russian intelligence", he said. He even went so far as to make a sex-related joke about Putin and Trump last month that had Trump and his supporters calling for Colbert to be sacked by CBS. "It works over there somehow, I'm not sure".
