    Leno had one hard pair of shoes to fill and did a good job of it. But I'm not so sure if Jimmy Fallon can do the same. What do you think?

    I think that Jimmy Fallon will exceed expectations.  He is smart, very funny and most of all, the guy is just so darn humble and "normal."  He feels both accessible and relatable.  I like him that much. I really want to see him succeed.

      I see a great rivalry continuing also. When Letterman retires, rivalries will continue between Fallon and Kimmel. This competition is a huge contributing factor to the quality of the show presented to us as viewers.

    I think that Jimmy Fallon is a very capable host.  The show itself, just like when Leno took over, will not change - so he will do well.  Once in place, the transition will be viewed as a positive action by all who follow such events.

      I agree. The format of the show hasn't changed much  over the years. By the end of the day, I think most want to know what to expect when relaxing before bed.That show provided that for the 50some years I've watched.

    I agree. Fallon will do great in the role. He has done well with his show prior and will connect with the younger viewership better than Conan did. I liked Conan but think Fallon is a better fit.

      Agreed. Seems like Fallon is a little less animated than Conan. A little more laid back. Carson and Leno also could project that " who me?" expression after a funny response to a guest and I think Fallon can do the same, Besides, Conan's hair scary.
