Funbags: Fallon was a big reason why I stopped bothering with snl.
Leno was a big reason why the late night talk show genre itself became nothing more than empty, crass self-promotion.

as you might guess, Ill be tuning in to watch Fallon's wacky antics with the same zeal as that guy from 'singled out' who is somehow still employed,

You sound like a blast.

theflatline: Solid Muldoon: Y'all are all too young to remember the golden age of variety shows on TV, but I would much rather watch one hour of The Fallon and Timberlake Show each week than watch a great talent like Fallon reduced to asking, "So, did you bring a clip?" five nights a week.

Agreed, as someone who grew up in the golden age of Carson, Fallon gets his guests and audiences involved like Johnny did.

And people hate on Fallon for cracking up in skits, Carson did it all the time.

Fallon is the closest to Carson in the "welcome to my party" aspect of talk shows, but he doesn't have what Carson had when it comes to the interviews. Letterman comes the closest to that.

The best thing Fallon could do for the Tonight Show is bring back the idea that all the guests stay on the couch and talk among themselves. Some of the greatest moments in Tonight Show history came from the guests interacting with each other, instead of just telling canned anecdotes and promoting their current project.

Everyone would be happier if NBC could get Fallon to wear a prosthetic chin and tell jokes about Bill Clinton.

I like Fallons show a lot.. It's much better than two old men telling out dated jokes and tired late night routines..

interstellar_tedium: Fallon sucks, I don't know who watches him, even the 18 year old me that loved early David Letterman would find Fallon moronic.

I can't get into him at all, either. Some of his musical impressions which sometimes are his opening bit for a show are really farking good, but that's it...

I'd rather watch Conan or Craig host, but wouldn't mind Fallon coming on to impersonate Neil Young every now and then.

I have long since stopped watching these shows, although I tried and liked Craig Ferguson I still would rather stream something most nights as I don't care about most of the interviewees.  Fallon sucks, I don't know who watches him, even the 18 year old me that loved early David Letterman would find Fallon moronic.
