(Huffington Post)   Jimmy Fallon chats with fan for 20 minutes amid awkwardness. No word on why the fan endured 20 whole minutes of breathless flattery mixed with infantile giggling   (huffpost.com) divider line

Besides being goofy, what's with all the Jimmy Fallon hate? Yeah, he couldn't keep a straight face on SNL, but neither could Horatio Sanz and Sanz was half as funny as Fallon.

Because he's not entertaining

Jimmy spent 20 minutes laughing at his own joke(s) since no one else was laughing.

He's successful. There's nothing the average Farker hates more than successful people.

Bullshait.

I don't watch Jimmy Fallon because I find it uncomfortable to watch him. It's like he's in pain, but he's using every fiber of his being to pretend that he's having fun.

Untrue - there are also people that eat food incorrectly, those that like movies/other entertainment that some Farkers don't like, and most importantly there's Ted Cruz

/the last one is understandable

Anything involving failin should not be in the entertainment thread.  By himself, he does not ever reach the level of entertainment.  Perhaps there needs to be a new category "Time Filler" for people like failin.

I do not recall a single time when he was entertaining.  He exists.  Perhaps he should create a show called "jimmy failin explores new paths to boredom."  He could have guest like "TURD!" or a cardasian or the one of his audience members from the midwest.

I never seen his show, but I assume it's just as vapid, stupid and pointless as he is.

What's the difference between failin, katan and schneider?  The smartest one talks about copies, is a dumbf*ck and has an IQ of 80.  The rest are even more inconsequential.

The only good part of his show is the Roots.

The person should have known he was Fallon instead of Kimmel.  The pure annoyingness should have been a big tip off.

That's always the excuse instead of actually telling us what you think is good about the person.  Go ahead.  Make a case.

He playfully tousled the hair of the monster., thereby attempting to humanize it,
much to the dismay of millions. (and to the delight of a legion of dickheads)

For me it's the exaggerated, forced hysterical laugh at the slightest comment the guest makes.
There's never a chuckle, a "that's a very amazing story".  It's always throw himself on the desk and expel every breath in his body laughing that comes off so insincere it's amazing that it hasn't been addressed by guests and executive staff alike

And when he eventually gets replaced because he's losing to FoxNews, if you're quiet enough, you'll here him mutter, "I sucked how many dicks and this is what I get."

It's not hate. There are like six shows that do what he does and he's seventh-best. Simple as that.

THIS right here is the inexcusable action Fallon committed. The entire non-asshole world knew what Trump was, and Fallon chose to give him a platform, tousle his hair and pretend that he wasn't a monster.

In short, F*ck Jimmy Fallon for his whitewashing of Failed Republican Traitor President Donald Trump

I disagree. By the time Trump was on Fallon's show, he already HAD a platform. You may as well blame the entire media complex for reporting on Trump before you blame Fallon.

Fallon came and gave the Commencement speech as a complete surprise at my youngest daughter's High School graduation--the Marjory Stoneman Douglas class of 2018 in Parkland, FL after the school had suffered a loss of 17 students & staff due to a mindless shooting.

Say what you will about Jimmy Fallon, but he came and dispensed some extremely-needed comedic medicine on a very wounded community.

He knocked it out of the park, and for that, he will always be loved in my household.

Fallon blows, bites and sucks all at the same time

Anyone see the "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" featuring Fallon?

Seemed like a more real glimpse of his true nature deep-down contempt for the audience.  Which makes it pretty clear that his goofy stuff is just forced crap that's made him rich and famous.

I find him unwatchable, so I don't watch.

Though I did watch that time he boosted Trump on his show.  That was memorable and infuriating.

Oh here's some poop.  You know how Horatio Sanz has turned out to be a scumbag who dated underaged girls, then forced himself on them? Well Fallon was his best friend and wingman.  To be clear, that's not saying Fallon did the same, but he stood by and just watched as Sanz did it.

Re Fallon often cracking in sketches, Tracy Morgan is on record saying he thinks it was often contrived.  Tracy tells a story of a sketch he wrote and got chosen for dress rehearsal, meaning, it had beaten out 40+ "ideas" on Weds-Thurs, then got winnowed down to 20 or so "concepts" Friday, then a final 15 or so for Saturday rehearsal.

Morgan says, "I told Jimmy, 'Jimmy, this sketch is really important to me.  Don't you pull none of that laugh-y giggly shiat - I'm SERIOUS, Jimmy - tell me now if you're gonna pull that stupid shiat so I can get someone else to do the sketch.  Don't fark around."  Fallon apparently does the sketch - no idea what it was - without cracking.

so Morgan is later like, "I think Jimmy liked upstaging people.  but one time, I told him not to, and he didn''t, and that's why I think that whole thing he did was made up, to steal the moment. 'ha ha ha, look at me, ha ha ha, everyone's gonna be talking about me', that kind of shiat."

I hate the way he often calls people, even ones he just met, "Pal".  The false sense of intimacy and connection definitely irks.  I've seen him call young female guests "Pal".  It's not just insincere sounding.  It's creepy.

I don't know about his talk show, but on SNL it seemed as though as he was just genuinely enjoying himself. I know, the horror!

So your knowledge of him is 17 years old?  Great argument.
