Not sports but a good laugh.

This is a moment where I wish the thread upvote button was still around.

Fuck m*ch*gan! That is all.

That is one of the funniest things I've seen in awhile! Jimmy Fallon is terrific - he's hilarious, and is a genuinely good dude. I'm so happy the Tonight Show is pretty much the exact same as his Late Night show...

Yes Jimmy Fallon is a comedic genius, tomorrow night he has Justin Timberlake on I think.

He has his moments, but I've never been a huge fan.

Jimmy Fallon seems like a nice enough guy, but he's kind of awkward. Letterman is a bitter creep.

The best was Johnny Carson, but I'd prefer Leno still over Fallon.

Give Fallon a chance.  The great thing about him is not only his talents (impressions, musician, etc...) but his ability to get other celebs out of their comfort zones. All the different games and sketches he does with his guests really show just how talented some of these celebs/actors/musicians can be.

Judging by his guests & content Jimmy Fallon's show is not one I'll be tuning into.  He was better at his old time slot. (so far)

Jay Leno is even less of a man than he is funny, and that's saying something, because he is not funny.

Leno turned me off when his ego got too big when demanded (like a 2 year old) his spot back after his 10:00 pm experiment didn't work out. Conan got the shaft and then was funnier than Leno and now he has the last laugh.

Conan was paid 45 million dollars to go away. I have a hard time feeling sorry for him.

It's funny how people don't rag Conan when he kicked Lopez out of his time slot.

How is he "even less of a man"? What do you have against Leno? That is unwarranted.

So you don't like the guy because Conan, Letterman and Kimmel don't like him. Says all I need to know about you.

That was actually the third reason I listed. Other peoples' opinion of somebody shouldn't be a sole reason you dislike somebody, but it can be a complimentary sign (if you have other evidence) that they aren't the best guy.

But hey man, you're right. My taste in late night television talk show hosts is all you need to know about me. That's what defines me.

I'm pretty sure that somebody in his editing room deserves far more credit for that than Jimmy Fallon does. 

Also I didn't realize that anybody under the age of 45 actually watches The Tonight Show.  Colbert and the Daily Show all the way!

DVR.  But yes, I prefer The Daily Show and Colbert Report.  If I had money to waste, I would bid on the microwave.

One of his Fallon's best skits was on Saturday Night Live with Janet Jackson. It was the Cork Soakers episode. I still watch it from time to time.

I've always been a fan of Fallon. The guy is hilarious. I didn't have a problem with Leno, but Fallon is putting the Jay Leno Tonight Show to shame. The thing I like about Fallon is he puts his SNL background to use and does skits with his guest. Here's a few clips of bits that Fallon has done this week that I really enjoyed.

 

 

 

I have never been one to religiously watch late night tv, but as long as Fallon is hosting the Tonight Show I probably won't be missing many episodes

I'm interested in Late Night with Seth Meyers.  His standup is pretty good, and he was great as a writer for SNL.  Should be interesting.

Fallon is fantastic. Been watching him since he started Late Night.

Most of these late night hosts are typical media cowards.

I think Fallon's week 1 guest list was turrible, btw.

I didn't know that Charles Barkley/Frank Caliendo appeared on his show.

Just curious what you mean by "typical media coward".
