JW: LessO2: jdjoker: LessO2: And herein lies the difference. When was the last time you ever saw Jay Leno trending on both Facebook and Twitter the morning after?Both mornings after his "final" shows?Yeah, so it takes Leno signing off for good after 22 years to make it, and Fallon does it on night number three with a 90-second bit.To be fair, Facebook did not exist for 13 of those 22 years, Twitter for 15 of the 22 years, and neither of them have been all that big except for the past 5. You're gonna hold it against Jay Leno that he did not trend on something that did not exist?
SafetyThird: The problem I've seen with both Fallon and Leno is that they won't STFU when interviewing people. They were always trying to interject something about themselves instead of letting the guest finish their stories.Letterman is a better standup and better interviewer hands down.
ERNesbitt: Brilliant bit/execution... but it was still probably pitched by a writer in a meeting and not by Fallon. (... and from 1979 as stated above.)Am I the only one who finds him unfunny? I didn't think he was that great on SNL either. (I have the same thoughts on Will Ferrell.)
dj_spanmaster: This was really slick. +1 to Jimmy Fallon!But I have to wonder, just how did they find all the video samples? A comprehensive transcript of all newscasts?
styckx: And this is why Fallon will be sitting in that chair for 20 years.
