He’s worth a coupla’ tens a’ million, so I don’t think he really should care about eating expenses if he loses his job. But going after Obambozo? Just ain’t done!
Yep Leno knows he’s done..those jokes were great though, for a second there he didn’t sound like a far left kook..maybe he realizes Obama wants to take his money
I know he’s probably a liberal, but he’s always seemed like he’d be a relatively cool guy to kick back and have a beer with. Maybe it’s because he’s such a motorhead. Anybody who loves cars as much as he does can’t be all bad, can he?
* Move to Texas.
* Take your car museum too, and get a tax break to boot..
* after your non-compete agreement is over, do a comedy show on the Blaze...
NBC would **** their pants, that would be the ultimate Schadenfruede...
Great stuff. Brian Williams probably had to be given sedatives when he heard about it.
Leno is leaving the Tonite show?
Absolutely boneheaded move on NBC’s part. Fallon’s audience is mostly stoned college students. He can occasionally be funny when he’s doing singing impressions, and not acting jittery and giggling at his own jokes. And he seems like a nice guy (he apologized and claimed he didn’t know about the insulting music cue for Michelle Bachmann; that was picked by the leader of his ridiculously overpraised band, the Roots). But I only see him when Craig Ferguson is in reruns because there’s no question of which one’s funnier. If he were an hour earlier, I’d only watch him if Kimmel and Conan were in reruns. And he’d be fourth choice if Fox or someone else snaps up Leno, which they would be idiots not to do.
Jimmy Fallon is no Johnny Carson. Carson started by hosting a daytime talk/game show and was so brilliant, he took over the Tonight Show, the realm of hosts like Steve Allen and Jack Paar.
Back in the golden age of TV, the network would’ve known where Fallon belongs: on daytime TV. He’s likeable without being overly talented, housewives think he’s adorable, and he likes to play silly games like Pictionary with celebrities and audience members and give away prizes to both the winners and losers. He’s the modern equivalent of Bob Barker or Art Linkletter, (host of “Houseparty,” which could also be the name of Fallon’s show). I would also say Bill Cullen, but he was much funnier than Jimmy Fallon.
For those too young to remember any of them, I’ll put it this way: Fallon is like a slightly more butch Ellen DeGeneres, or a slightly less butch Rosie O’Donnell. They all had some standup comedy background, but they’re not there because they’re comic geniuses, they’re there because they keep bored housewives from feeling lonely or going crazy when they’re alone with the kids all day.
saw his opening last night. I asked the spousal unit where those barbs at Obama have been for the last 5 or 6 years???
Wouldn’t it be a laugh if he keeps up nailing our “leaderless fear” and his ratings go sky high???
One can hope.
I hope Jay goes on another channel and blows James off the air
NBC: We’re #5! We’re #5
Univision can whip them
