In this image released by Spike TV, Jimmy Fallon appears on the celebrity competition series, "Lip Sync Battle." When Jimmy Fallon sought to turn the popular lip sync competition feature from the "Tonight" show into a television series, NBC turned down one of its biggest stars _ a decision that at least initially seems like an embarrassing mistake. Fallon and his production partners instead brought "Lip Sync Battle" to corporate competitors at the Viacom-owned Spike TV, where it instantly became a hit. (Scott Gries/Spike TV via AP)
