Is Fallon still playing stupid games with the audience?  If I wanted to watch a game show, I'd DVR a 'good' one like Price is Right or Jeopardy.

ZeroCorpse: Jimmy Fallon is one of the least funny people in the universe. Anyone who would watch The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon is one sick puppy.


Fallon has by far the best music guests. I don't really hate Fallon nearly as much as others here, but I otherwise find his hosting portions generally uncomfortable to watch. Thankfully, they posts the music guests' performances online so I can just skip all the host segment bullshiat.

I remember reading a book about SNL where people used to have talks with Fallon before their skit aired and threaten him that if he upstaged it by laughing at himself that they would beat him senseless.

This whole thread failed.

Jay Leno tells some Obama jokes (THE HORROR, THE FARKING HORROR) and some oh-so-offended type liberals automatically try to install Obama fanboy Jimmy Fallon into the Tonight Show.

That figures. It will never happen. NBC saw their ad dollars at 11:30 die with Conan and it would be the same with Fallon. The guy that follows Leno will be bland and middle of the road because that is safe. It's why Leno got the gig in the first place.

Jay Leno should just do a show about cars.

His videos on his website about his garage are fascinating.  There was one of him showing off his new 3D Scanner and printer that was quality television.  He was using it to fabricate a part for a steam powered car.

I'm telling you Jay's Garage would be a hit on the discovery channel.

If Fallon takes the job he's an idiot.

It's not about the host of the show it's about the brand. Jay Leno works as part of the Tonight show brand. Conan did  work with the brand. Letterman wouldn't have worked with the brand. They wanted to do their own thing. The only way it would work is if they changed the name of the show. Which is not gonna happen.
I've been really impressed by fallon, but if he goes for Leno's slot the same thing will happen to him as Conan and Letterman.

/I would support the Roots variety hour as well.

Anyone see "The Late Shift" on HBO (it was a book too)? It was a movie about Leno and Letterman that tried to make us sympathize with millionaires whining and crying about what time slot they're going to get. fark all these people. They're just there to tell lame jokes and promote their guests' newest project.

Jay Leno. Douche bag.

Cobalt O'Bunion. Harvard Lampoon guy.

/can't decide which is worse but I watched the Harvard Lampoon guy when I had cable. I haven't watched the douche bag since he...well, since he was a douche bag...for the third time
/I actually miss Andy Richter. He gave all of us fat guys hope.

Geez, thank for dredging up Bullard. I had blacked him out from my memory.

I remember watching one episode of Thicke of the Night.

Sammy Maudlin - now THERE was a show!

I loved the SCTV stuff.

I remember when John Candy bought a share of the Argos and was visiting the stadiums. During the warmups, he was on the sideline - I yelled how, "HEY, IT'S JOHNNY LARUE!!!!" He turned and laughed. Apparently he was a really nice guy if you met him up close.

 I still don't get how NBC "Screwed" Conan..He had a chance..It didn't work..AT ALL..His ratings BOMBED.
He wasn't funny as a talk show guy. He moved to TBS, and solidified the fact, that he isn't funny as a
talk show guy.  Conan may be a great behind the scenes guy, writer, producer/idea guy. His really late
show was a cult hit with college kids and stoners..It doesn't work at the earlier slot that has to appeal to
people that don't go for "wacky" comedy before bed.

 I also don't get the hate on Leno..I just don't get it. He's entertaining. No, he is not Johnny Carson.
Carson was the master. Carson was also a career maker and a powerful guy. It doesn't appear Leno
wants that kind of thing. IMHO he's a fairly laid back dude that really just wants to tinker on his cars,
hang with his wife, play with the cat and do some stand up on weekends.

Mr. Shabooboo: I still don't get how NBC "Screwed" Conan..He had a chance..It didn't work..AT ALL..His ratings BOMBED.



Except his ratings didn't bomb. He was actually competitive with Letterman in the 18-49 demo (which is the one advertisers actually pay for) and that was with a 10pm comedy talk show stealing most of his thunder. But Leno most certainly bombed at 10pm unfortunately his contract was so iron clad that they couldn't get rid of him.

As far as getting rid of Leno I can actually see it happening. I mean they wanted to get rid of him back when they tried to bring in Conan but he essentially straight up told them that if they fired him, he would get a talk show at ABC, and then the Tonight Show would go from being the #1 show in the ratings to probably #3. But now depending on how good Kimmel's contract is, Leno going to ABC might not be an option for him. Plus I imagine like everything else on network tv the audience for late night is probably shrinking. And Leno is very expensive. So maybe they are thinking that if the ratings are going to be low from now on, the smart play would be to get the cheapest guy possible as the host, and hope he can get decent ratings and create buzz when it comes to promoting NBC shows and Universal movies.
