Are you not of this planet? Fallon is hands down FUNNY,FUNNY,FUNNY! He is the best face and personality for 2014- 2034 for NBC. & NEW YORK. There is life @ 11:35 pm ,now. Worth to wake up groggy! Replace him? NO WAY!
I always liked JImmy Fallon with his SNL days. I think his show is awesome and adds a unique and refreshing alternative to the late night talk show circuit. I love Leno it makes my night to have two great shows in a row to enjoy. I reallly like the musical skits in which he Stills, he would do more of those. He does a great Neil Young. More of those and more of the acting parts would be the one with Michael SNL type characters really add a lot to the show. I am a big SNL show and would love to see more of these and other unique ideas in the show because Fallon is multi talented and would love to see that in all of the enjoy the Cap 1 commercials..
JIMMY FALLON IS HILARIOUS. His jokes are funny, he interviews great. He is taking over late night. He's such a likable guy and I love that he laughs with the interviewees. Whoever gave him bad ratings is wrong. He's going places.
Jimmy's show ROCKS! I now watch in when I wake in morning to get a good belly laugh to strat the day. I TiVo every night. The man has so much fun every night and you can tell he loves the job. The ROOTS? Awesome! What a stroke of genius to get these guys. Also jimmy's side kick Higgins is a hoot...guess he's been around a while, but they've been hiding him. The Real Housewives of Late Night, singing " scrambled eggs " to tune of Yesterday w/ McCarthy and Whip my hair as Neil Young with Springsteen? Genius! yes, has some very adolescent games, but tweets of the week is great. Thanks Lorne Michaels.....I love Jimmy Fallon's Late Night!
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon made its broadcast debut on March 2, 2009, as Saturday Night Live alum Jimmy Fallon became the third host of the NBC comedy-talk franchise. The show serves as a platform for comedy, music and A-list talent out of NBC's Rockefeller Center Studio 6B. Fallon first garnered attention in 1998 when he joined the cast of Saturday Night Live and quickly became an audience favorite for his impressions of actors and musicians as well as creating many memorable recurring characters. In 2000, he became co-anchor of the popular segment Weekend Update alongside Tina Fey. Fallon went on to appear in the Emmy Award-winning miniseries Band of Brothers and made his feature-film debut in Almost Famous. He also had starring roles in Taxi and Fever Pitch.
how about a new feature called 'What really happened'? you could do stuff like re-enacting the DB Cooper incident--and after the plane lands--have him kicking out the baggage, climbing down from the overhead compartment where he had been hiding all the time--and just walking away-all the security is going in--not going out. let me know if you ever want any other original material.
He's quirky...I like Jimmy Fallon. He's sweet and silly. Just what America needs! Sometimes his Late show isn't too good, but it's always watchable. I love Jimmy especially when he shows up on SNL with Justin Timberlake to play Barry & RobinGibb.."Double Dutch"
He has the best impersonations on Late night TV since Conan's TV departure.
He had a struggle in the start but now he wns the stage, the audience, his band, and his guests all feel comfortable and love every moment they are on the show.
There aren't many interview hosts on Late Night TV which tries to spice things up and make things fun since it really all is about publicity for their films and promotion for the celebs that go on, might as well have fun!..
I expectually enjoy the bands involvement with the show, it allows the audience at home t feel as if they are they and it is a really relaxed vibe going on every night hes on. Good on you, Jimmy!
Conan's new show is the same, but safer and the musical guests SUCK. I started watching Jimmy Fallon's show expecting it to be just terrible but I actually really like it and watch every episode now. It's cool to see a guy who's always excited on a show that airs every day. He plays cool games with the guests and audience. He also does Freestylin' with the Roots where the band makes up a song about a random audience member on the spot. This is my favorite thing to watch on the show because the band is unbelievably talented.
As for comedy, the Friday routine of thank you letters are usually REALLY funny.
I felt as though Jimmy Fallon did an amazing job for his first late night show, and I look forward to watching his show grow and mature in comedy. The Roots are an amazing home band and Jimmy is beyond lucky to have received them as such. Jimmy Fallon's funniest skit for his first episode was the News Slow Down by far, and the rest of the episode only had minor laughs to provide. However, I suggest this show to all late night lovers, and all I ask is that you be patient with his comedy. Even Conan wasn't amazing when he first started.
People keep saying this show is stupid and its "childish" or not educating. Im sorry, if you wanted educating theres a channel called PBS. If you dont like Jimmy Fallon hosting the tonight show, go find a diffrent show. The fact that you took the time to trash on some one (who is way more famous than you) is stupid. No one cares about your opinion.
When I first found out that Fallon was taking over Conan, I wasn't too happy. However, after watching the first week, I changed my mind, and can see how this show will grow with time. Fallon seems to be getting more and more comfortable as the shows go on. I can see after a few seasons this show being one of the many regulars everyone considers for Late Night Television. ps. The Roots are a great band for the show. They really mix it up from all the other late night house bands. The tuba player really makes it too :p
For his first episode this wasn't bad. He was really nervous and kind or rough around the edges at times but that's expected. I mean, he's got big shoes to fill and everyone was already hating the show before it even came on. Most people would be sweating if they were put in his place. The monologue was alright, kind of forgettable but it wasn't a trainwreck. I didn't like the "Slow Jam the News" bit but I do like The Roots, really good house band. The De Niro interview wasn't that great but he was being a little unresponsive. That makes it kind of tough for the interviewer. The Timberlake interview was quite good though, they interact with each other really well and JT should probably be a recurring guest if possible. As for the musical act, I think that Van Morrison was horrid. Sounded like he was drunk or something.
Jimmy Fallon is funny, but bland and unexciting. His monologues were incredibly awkward when he started, but he's become much more comfortable. Late night is now bland, boring and dull in every way imaginable. It was alright as a filler between conans time off the air, but now that conan's back I'm probably gonna stop watching. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . And now, with all unnecessary punctuation included, my review is a hundred words long!
Jimmy Fallon got off to a medicore start. I love Conan and thought his show was hilarious, no questions asked. Late Night with Jimmy Fallon just needs to find its special something that sets it apart. Fallon seems nervous and forces jokes. He is funny, but he needs to relax. I have not watched all his interviews, but I did enjoy his interview with Tina Fey. I like the show's set with the spiral stair case. I do not particularly care for the taped segments, most are boring. Although the show may have had a shaky start, I think Jimmy Fallon will be able to make the show his own and memorable.
I'll be honest, I used to HATE Jimmy Fallon. Much for the same reasons many other people did. Plus, he was totally in the shadow of a better comedian, namely, Will Ferrell. Ferrell stole the spotlight from everyone, and for good reason, the guy is hilarious. But Fallon still didn't seem to have it and would even laugh a ton during skits with Ferrell. Now that they have moved on and Fallon failed and Ferrell excelled. Fallon looks to find a new beginning. Enter Late Night. I think he's trying to make it his own and there are times where it is funny, but he has yet to convince me on why I should be coming back to his show. Even Conan to his last days had really bad writing. The show was extremely hit or miss, but I usually just liked watching Conan. I don't feel that way about Fallon. If he can get me to just want to watch HIM, then maybe he'll be a mainstay.
Jimmy Fallon is talented but not as a comedian. Absolutely cannot stand the show. His sidekick is silly and so is JImmy. I am sure he is a wonderful person but not an entertainer for late night. We want clever humor, and most of all a GREAT monologue. His are really unimpressive. Jay Leno was quick and FUNNY. I have him taped. Maybe Jimmy should look at his monologues to brush up on timing etc. Oh well. I am off to Jimmy Kimmel. Can't believe I am writing a review. Never have done this but I miss Jay and Johnny!
Now hear me out.. I watch conan, ferg, fallon, and kimmel. I don't like leno what soo ever.. and dislike letterman in a similar, yet less hateful way. What I respect in talk shows is respect towards the guest while "keeping it real".. fallon is such a suck up and painfully awkward at times. Its sad that this is who will take over the tonight show. Jay leno has a lot of history but lost my respect long before the conan fued. I hope nbc now see's that setteling with fallon was and will be a huge mistake in comparison to what conan has and would have done. Yea it cost them 40mill and a great talk show host. Now they're left with this d list actor/ comedian who sucks a huge amount of a**, yet is better than leno.. whome also sucks a huge amount of a**. My review may sound a little immature but I watch a lot of talk shows and it doesn't take just my sense of humor to understand what I'm saying.
I have a really hard time watching the tonight show since Fallon replaced Leno. The show lacks substance with the guests and Fallon's monologue stinks! Why would you ever replace Jay Leno with Jimmy Fallon? Leno was number one! What more did you want?? I will not be watching the Tonight show anymore since it now sucks!
It was painful. First off who thought Robert DeNiro was a good first guess? Big name? Yes. Good talkshow guest? HEEeelll no! And really? The Roots? If they were trying for "hip", they missed by a mile.
Frankly they need more then finetunning. They need brand new parts. Jimmy Fallon's monologue was decent but the rest of the show -- even the part with Justin Timberlake -- was bad. I'm not a huge fan of Jimmy in the first place but he wasn't bad on SNL. Unfortunately this did not make him any more endearing imo. The person taking over Conan's shoes had to be up to par, but NBC -- I think the 'N' stands for 'Nepotism' -- decided with Fallon. Am I harsh? Yes. But because it was a good show under Conan, and I don't like how it has been redone, I won't go easy on him.
Right off the bat, (which he tells everyone on his show that there acting hit one out of the ballpark) his interviewing skills are horrible. He's a reboot of Arsenio Hall kissing everyone's ass and telling them there the best. Enough already. Fake laughing face in get rid of that idiot in The Roots who talks into the mic along with the band playing with random words out of the dictionary (I guess its rap). Don't know single word he says and ears bleed constantly. Its f&%#in horrible and brain cell melting. I liked you better before you took over The Tonight Show. Can we talk Craig Ferguson to take over?
This is about 20 minutes in S1E170 brodcast 11/25/2014. Ok it Screen Grabs and the first is during a basketball game and the caption has the players stats and his age is 114, really funny. Next was a security log in and the two words were "weiner and Hound". Immediately fallon says "dont come in dads office" as if porno or something was on. The jackass to his right kept saying "weiner hound" over and over and over 20 or 30 times. 45sec later it was over. Next was an dinner invite with typos. "Crap cakes and sweet potato hay" i swear only a few seconds short of 2 minutes nothing but stool jokes, No.2 specials, corn, peanut butter, serving crap cakes and on and on and on. Then they run the joke into the next capture with a typo that has "Anus". Sure i enjoy a shit joke occasiknally but not for my late night entertainment. Especially when it seems to be coming from two 11 year olds. I realize these times dont seem long but watch the video. It seems like its never gonna end. Theres more but you get the idea. Again he needs to be replaced with a more mature comedian.
First off, let me say that I am a huge fan of Conan O'Brien and I watch Leno and Letterman from time to time. Jimmy Fallon lacks the charisma of the hosts I've just mentionned. His monologues are plain awful and I seldom laugh during that part of the show. The "Lick it for ten" segment is really bad. Having members of the audience come on stage is a good idea but come on, this "game" is so childish. I've watched the first 3 episodes of "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and it is clear to me that the guy is a really bad interviewer. Just take a look at the first episode with Robert De Niro. Enough said! The band, "The Roots" does a fine job but it is not enough to make the show enjoyable and people tune in every night.
