Jimmy Fallon’s ‘Wheel of Musical Impressions’ is getting its own spinoff show

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our coverage will be reduced. We can't wait to get back to serving you all of the latest fandom news as soon as we can.

A popular Jimmy Fallon segment from the Tonight Show will soon be getting the television treatment.

“Wheel of Musical Impressions” has long since been a hit segment on Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Now, the recurring musical game is about to follow in the footsteps of Lip Synch Battle.

According to Deadline, NBC has officially given a series order to a new unscripted music and variety game show titled That’s My Jam.

The new game show, which has been given a 10-episode order, is inspired by the Tonight Show’s insanely popular “Wheel of Musical Impressions.”

When it’s played on the late night show, the segment finds Fallon and a famous guest attempting to sing well-known children’s songs in the style of some of today’s biggest artists.

Fallon, who is on board to executive produce on the new game show, said, “We love playing these games on the show, and it’ll be fun to see it taken to the next level.”

According to NBC, the new competition series “will be infused with Fallon’s one-of-a-kind comedic style, feel-good energy, and a carousel of his classic and brand new music based games, featuring a new group of celebrities each week.”

This isn’t the first of Fallon’s Tonight Show segments to get the television series treatment.

2015 saw the premiere of the popular musical game show Lip Sync Battle, which was also inspired by the popular late night show segment of the same name.

The series, which is hosted by LL Cool J and Chrissy Tiegen, is currently on its fifth season over on the Paramount Network.

Given Lip Sync Battle’s continued popularity, it’s no surprise NBC is looking to strike gold twice with That’s My Jam.

It’ll be interesting to see if fans flock to the newly announced musical game show when it eventually makes its grand debut on NBC.
