Jimmy Fallon, executive producer of the new NBC comedy Guys With Kids, made an appearance via satellite on the panel for the show today at the TCAs. “I feel like I’m doing a Dateline. I feel like Lester Holt,” Fallon joked (live on the panel, executive producer Amy Ozols confirmed the New York-based Fallon also “joined casting meetings that way”). Fallon said he and Ozols were inspired to do the show by seeing great-looking young dads out and about in New York with their Baby Bjorns, toting kids and taking an active role in parenting. They were “DILFs — if you know what a MILF is,” Fallon said. He jokingly added that the producers, when pitching the show, knew “Yeah, we probably can’t call the show DILFs. We’ll have to change that.”
