6 Reasons To Love Jimmy Fallon Taking Over TheTonight Show

Mark-Potts by Mark-Potts on Apr. 03, 2013

NBC made it official that Jay Leno is being retired to a pasture somewhere and young whippersnapper Jimmy Fallon is taking over the legendary "Tonight Show." And unlike the Conan/Leno debacle of 2010, this appears to be a smooth transition.

For you Leno fans out there (are there any, really? Hello? HELLO?) this might seem bad, but fear not! Fallon is a funny and talented guy. Here are six reasons we're happy he's taking over.

Jimmy Fallon Gets The Internet

On the surface, he's catering to the audience that watches him: young, hip, internet-savvy viewers. But on a deeper level, he gets that the internet is the future of media and is taking advantage of that now by doing sketches that involve online participation.

 

Jimmy Fallon Makes Celebrities Do Weird Things

Celebrities are often up-tight d-bags who just want to talk about their newest movie or album and get out of there. But Fallon loves to make them invest some time and do something unique for the audience. Sure, the celebrity is whoring themselves out for viewers, but at least it's more interesting than the typical sit-and-chat.

 

Jimmy Fallon Does Weird Shit

What is this? I don't know. But it's funny and things like this happen often.

 

Jimmy Fallon Supports Gaming

He loves featuring new games and the game creators.

 

Neil Young

More of these, please.

 

The Roots

The best band in late night. Great music and funny guys.

How do you feel about the change? Let us know in the comments.

I am starting to really hate this Fallon guy, he seems to take all the jobs of the other Latenight host varieties - THEY Only Got rid of Leno because he started questioning Obama.


That is the real reason, for his drones and programs and his wars and policies - Fallon is a yes man Who panders too the Mainstream media and also - he has done nothing for us on a intellectual level but annoy us by taking all the late night shows.


BILL Maher - He cannot ever take away a show like his - Do you know why??


Because he is not funny enough and never questions the officials at the top and just panders too the new age losers nobody will remember in 30 so years.


He just agrees - FALLON is a BOBBLE HEAD - too the MASS media. And he is annoying and he has skeletons in his closet, i hope they find them soon.


He makes LATE NIGHT Boring ..

his jokes SUCK - he panders too his BLACK Music band with CRAPPY music and mainstream singers.


He will not be a memorable figure sadly, he is very Plain and boring to watch and YES, Jimmy Fallon will never be as funny as Craig Ferguson  - Fallon has no Spine for that kind of humor, 

Jimmy Fallon is a Kitty Cat Calender - cutout Latenight show host,


And my own Sister Dumped a guy who acted entitled to everything just like this guy.

That is why i also hate his guts - he gives off the exact carbon copy personality.


He feels entitled to take their Late night Hosts Shows - what a wh*re jimmy is.

Bravo, Jimmy!!!!! So welcome your upbeat + musical vibe into the late night mix. Folks who don't like him can easily go back to your choice of letterman, kimmel, o'brien. we'll take fallon for ourselves!

so welcome his refreshing musical + sketch talent -- have grown tired of comedy that relies on cynicism + cutting people down. His musical chops + parodies alone put me in a happy space at night. Yes, if that's not where you want to hang out, no worries, back to your old friends noted above. keep on keepin' on jimmy!

Fallon sucks, he has never been funny and only he thinks he is. He's trying to copy Johnny Carson's moves, etc. I hate people that get undeserved notoriety like Sedrick the entertainer, Kevin Hart, Jimmy Fallon, Glynn Washington (NPR) that aren't actually good just loud.It's kind of like Rap music only a few that are actually good most are just bad just a lot of promotion. If these people were athletes they would go away quickly because there you must perform or die.

Jimmy Fallon isn't funny at all. He should never have been on SNL and he should have never had his own talk show.

Conan was always a comedic flatline to me. When I heard he was taking over for Jay, I didn't think Conan's style of comedy would take with the viewers like Jay's did. It didn't, & NBC further cocked up things with how they tried to fix things. Conan gone. And Leno looking like the bad guy. And NBC, despite Leno maintaining NBC's place at Numero Uno in late. Want to cut the nose off their own face yet again by replacing him with another critical darling. Although I like Fallon's C

Jimmy does the same skits over and over, it is funny the first couple of times, but you have to be wasted or high to think it is funny. Craig Ferguson is the funniest late night guy there is, he actually is funny, not just his writers unlike the others. Conan is good too.

I enjoy how you said "(Are there any?..." To there being Jay Leno fans out there. There are more fans of Jay Leno, than break.com.. lol. Not only that, but his show has been at the top of the charts for late night shows for a long, long time. Try again?

Agreed. Conan and fergussen are genuineky clever and funny. Even Kimmel has superior wit to Fallon. Fallon though is the true successor to leno : bland , pedestrian , obvious jokes for dullards, and heavy celebrity sucking up.
