"Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" is a Hit

Posted: March 4th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" is a HitSubmit Comment
Talkshow host Jimmy Fallon is off to a solid start with "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" winning its 12:37am timeslot, giving NBC its best Monday rating in the hour since 2006.

The performance was better than other latenight debuts over the past decade, including those of "Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson" in 2005, "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in 2003 and "Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn" in 1999.

Fallon performed decently despite tough competition: "Jimmy Kimmel Live," which usually airs repeats on Mondays, instead ran an original featuring "The Bachelor" star Jason Mesnick, who had just dumped his fiancee on national TV.

During the first show, Justin Timberlake garnered praise for his impersonations of Barry Gibb and Michael McDonald, while first guest Robert De Niro lived up to his reputation for unexciting talkshow stints. Conan O'Brien appeared in the show's opening, while Van Morrison was the show's first musical performer.

Jimmy Fallon doesn't deserve a talk show. He's not funny. He kinda sucked on SNL besides a couple recurring characters.

It was really bad. I believe he is going to get canceled eventually. I interned at Conan last year and well, this show does not compare.

I watched just to see how he'd do, which turned out to be so-so. The Robert DeNiro interview was boring! I think the ratings will go down fast, but only time will tell on whether he'll be able to improve enough to stay on the air. He's definitely no Conan, but in his defense I'm not sure how good Conan was when he first started (I didn't start watching until he was a few years into Late Night).

Man, people are being HARSH! You realize how nervous this guy had to have been? You could practically see him shaking. At least give him a month before you give him an honest assessment of the show. Plus, The Roots are his house band! How cool is that!

He just kept talking...and laughing to himself...though that microsoft joke was pretty funny

We don't need to give him a month (hell, we don't need to give him an hour), we're all aware of Fallon's "talents" from his past work and can create an informed assessment of the show based on one viewing. He almost singlehandedly obliterated "SNL" post-Ferrell era. Fallon doesn't deserve another outlet for his crappy impersonations, ham-handed song parodies, and tendency to laugh at his own unfunny jokes. NBC oughta cancel this immediately; unfortuantely, he's friends with Tina Fey (a coconspirator to the decline of "SNL") and, therefore, will likely keep his program for at least another year or two (if not more, God forbid).

agree with solidkyrptonite, im sure evryone hated conan back in the day, then they started to get his style. im not even a big fan of jimmy fallon, but you can tell hes trying. hes funnier then carson daly and that gay FOX talk show, and who rememebers craig kilborn? biggest loser ever. Fallon will do a hell of a better job then him, give it a month then bitch

The show wasn't bad. The funniest part was the first 2 minutes with Conan. I can see everything getting better in the future. At least Carson Daily didn't get the gig. God that guy blows. Also, the interview with De Niro was expected to be boring-he not the loud jump on the couch type of guy.

give it time before we judge it maybe? I mean he does have some incredibly huge shoes to fill.
