Re: Jimmy Fallon to take over for Conan O'Brien
There is little related to SNL and a show like Late Night...Jimmy Falon is a VERY GOOD WRITER and he is also a very natural conversationalist, same as Conan when he took over. He doesn't need to be a great Stand up Comedian or even Skit comedian or actor to do the show well, I think Falon will surprise a lot of people with how good he does.
That said, I hated him on SNL, he was totally out classed in every aspect of the show...except, writing.
I think this is a good choice.
Knowing Jay Leno and his incredible streak of LOYALTY, I would say he entertains thoughts of ABC and FOX but will end up staying with NBC...I admit I could be dead wrong but in the past from the clubs he has worked to the people he promotes to the management team he works with to the writers on his show has shown an extreme amount of loyalty.
