When was the last time a Jimmy Fallon clip went viral compared to a Conan clip? Fallon just isn't funny.

Jimmy Fallon is very funny to Jimmy Fallon. One of his biggest problems is he constantly laughs at his own jokes, sometimes before he's even said them. He's had good guests, but they're the ones who usually carry the clips, not him.

I think Conan is doing well at TBS. The freedom they provide him lets him do a lot more risque stuff. He had me cracking up during one of his monologues last week:

And the guys from Workaholics were great.

Even though Conan is definitely funnier than Fallon, the headline was pretty damn funny... kudos

Conan hasn't exactly been making my sides split for the last decade or so. Sure, he was good when he was willing to be a little edgy. But those days are gone.

IDK, I thought his recent trip to the American Girl doll store was pretty good.

I don' think either of them are really funny anymore. Fallon will do better than Conan did, but will probably never get to the ratings of the unfunny Leno.
 
2014-01-22 10:45:26 AM  
Aaaaaw poor little farkers all butt hurt that their guy is relegated to cable wastland after his epic fail on the tonight show. My heart bleeds.

Fallon's musical skits are funny...and posted all the freaking time on the internet. Get out of your bubble.
 
2014-01-22 10:46:34 AM  
What cable network does Fallon get shipped off to in a few months when Leno comes back?

The Tonight Show was specifically built around Johnny Carson's strong points; everyone they try to shoehorn into the same formula will look like a weak imitation.

Ah, the hubris of the Internet. Now it doesn't matter if people actually watch the proper show, as long as it produces clips that "go viral". I'm sure TBS likes to hear that their premiere late night show is at the same level as cat videos.

Fallon will probably benefit by continuing to do his show in New York, where he's clearly comfortable (having done SNL and Late Night there).  I wonder if that option was ever given to or even considered by Conan for his Tonight Show turn.
 
2014-01-22 12:10:48 PM  
Get ready for watered down Fallon.

As if he didn't already suck bad enough.

LOL

Anyways, any meager sympathy I may have had for Conan evaporated years ago after the constant whining of him and his fans.

It was not.  Conan was forced to uproot his entire family and crew and move to LA.  Of course, Conan is not produced by Lorne Michaels.

Not today of course, but when he was on NBC his show included Michaels's company Broadway Video in the credits. I think Michaels had a hand in the show back then.

Conan is funny looking. But he can't tell a joke.
 
2014-01-22 01:38:16 PM  
Will Smith? U2? Is this for Fallon's 1987 show?

Why should I care about the Tonight Show? Jay Leno killed and buried the brand after being reinstalled as the host over Conan.

Yeah, that was great. Conan has been really funny lately. The Jordan Schlansky bits are hysterical

Jimmy Fallon is very funny to Jimmy Fallon. One of his biggest problems is he constantly laughs at his own jokes, sometimes before he's even said them. He's had good guests, but they're the ones who usually carry the clips, not him.

I think Conan is doing well at TBS. The freedom they provide him lets him do a lot more risque stuff. He had me cracking up during one of his monologues last week:

That's their running joke right? Hilarious stuff. It sounded like Conan's audience agreed me with me though, they were barely laughing at anything about the segment until that song.

I don't know whats considered viral, but Fallon has had a few clips within the last year in the 10-20 million views range

If YouTube views are any indication, id say hes doing just fine.

Nearly every critique on Fark is best read in the voice of one of The Haters from The Chappelle Show.

Fallon is really one of the least funny people I have seen. It upsets me that there is anyone that likes him. They are bad people and they should feel bad.
