SHOW BITS: Fallon needs ticket; Another red carpet
Show Bits brings you the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards through the eyes of Associated Press journalists. Follow them on Twitter where available with the handles listed after each item.
FROM 1 JIMMY TO ANOTHER
Jimmy Fallon is playing musical chairs at this year’s Emmy Awards, in more ways than one.
The 2010 Emmy host, interviewed on the red carpet, noted he has passed hosting duties on to another Jimmy this year, name of Kimmel.
As a result, Fallon said, he doesn’t even have a ticket to the 2012 show.
“But Clint Eastwood said he was going to save me a chair,” Fallon cracked.
His advice to this year’s Jimmy: “Don’t make out with Betty White. There’s cameras everywhere and you’ll get caught. And definitely go to Honey Boo Boo’s after-party, cause that’s gonna be where it’s at.”

SEEING STARS ON THE RED CARPET
At the Emmys there’s the red carpet and then there’s _ well _ the other red carpet.
As the main red carpet fills up, security tries to keep the line moving by directing the big stars down the carpet where cameras are lined up to film them and entertainment journalists are waiting to interview them.
Meantime, the less famous are directed down a parallel red carpet closer to the fan bleachers.
“Please continue walking,” security guards continuously say.
