Re: Jimmy Fallon to take over for Conan O'Brien
The final show was great.
I disagree that Conan's show declined in the earlier time slot. I think the writing was actually stronger and more consistent. No masturbating bear, but I didn't really think the new show was scaled back at all. I do agree with Simmons that Conan's quirkiness doesn't play well with certain audiences (read: old people).
