Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

3/3/2009:

What did you think?

Just a quick post to see what you all thought about last night’s premier of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

I checked out the first 20 minutes – and I got a few chuckles – and dug the “slow jam” about the economic stimulus package. I always enjoyed the band The Roots, too.

Didn’t watch the rest of the interviews – but do you think Fallon has a big future as a late-night talk show host?

I was at the taping on Tuesday for the 2nd episode. It was alot of fun. I think he knows he flubbed the premiere and the interview with DeNiro. He definitely has some kinks to work out, but I really enjoyed the show in person. 🙂

i never found him very funny at all. i can watch him for an hour and not laugh. i just don’t get his humor. but in all fairness, conan got horrible reviews for 2-3 years.

i think conan was really a draw to that time slot. the others just fill in. craig f is funny, but not fabulous.

i’m looking forward to conan earlier in the night!

Don’t get a chance to watch SNL much so I didn’t know who this guy was. So going in with no prior knowledge of him, boy did he suck. This guy was so uncomfortable and unfunny. Liked the band and Dinero made the guy look worse by acting as if he wanted nothing to do with him.

May be a while before I give him another chance.

Geez, it was one show, give the guy a break. I’m not a big Jimmy Fallon fan, but making sweeping proclamations after one show is silly. Conan was on the brink of being cancelled for years, and look at him now.
