I have tried to like him in this new role, I really have. I think some of his things were funny on his own show, but in my opinion his interviews with people are painful to watch and I think he brings too much "Saturday Night Live" to the Tonight Show. I've given it a couple of weeks and I just can't do it. I really like him too - but just not as the Tonight show host. Oh well.... I still hope he fares better than Conan did.

I agree, I was not a Conan fan at all - never could get his humor.
Harvey Korman often started laughing during skits on the Carole Burnett show and I thought it was hilarious (you can buy the skits on Amazon or see them on youtube).
If you ever saw Harvey and Carol in the Rhett Butler, Scarlet O'Hara skit....neither of them could control themselves...and that happened a lot on the Carol Burnett show.. That only makes people laugh more!
In the interest of being fair to Mr. Fallon, I will watch a few episodes and reevaluate my opinion.
The old Carol Burnett shows are classic :) I think the Scarlet O'Hara bit with the curtains was probably one of the funniest ones ever. I need to watch some of those again. YouTube it is :)
Christin...that particular skit is a CLASSIC. I nearly hurt myself laughing at that one.
I won't settle for "snippets" of my Jimmy! LMAO!! I usually fall asleep b-4 his show is over.....Zzzzzzzzzz
Wow! Hi Jaye! Looks like so far, I'm Jimmy's only fan! LOL.....How you been? I'm FREEZING!!
Hi, Paula - I suppose my answer was a bit grouchy, but I'm tough on a lot of comics. It took Tina Fey a while to grow on me. Perhaps Fallon will, too. Who knows? I'm freezing, too, but I live in Mississippi! It's not supposed to get this cold here.
Jaye...You've earned the right to be grouchy or any other ole thing you want!! LOL! Tina had to grow on me too. I like her "Sarah Palin." Jimmy will steal your heart eventually. :) Stay warm!
GREAT new pic, Austin Star!.....
