New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie Roasts Boomer Esiason at the annual Friars Club Roast

In case you missed it, the Friars Club held their gala Roast of Boomer Esiason on Thursday over lunch at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel — taking full advantage of Super Bowl week in New York City.

If you think the Late Night franchise at NBC is in a pickle, well, you’re half right. There is a pickle involved. But this is a different sort of dill, er, I mean, deal. On Tuesday night, Jimmy Fallon passed the pickle onto Seth Meyers — the same one he’d received Conan O’Brien, who had it handed down to him from David Letterman and his staff, the original holders of the NBC Late Night title and time slot. Roll the...
