Trivia

According to Ahmir-Khalib Thompson, he was fired by Lorne Michaels after making disparaging comments about Tina Fey on Watch What Happens: Live (2009). Thompson felt that Fey, a fellow Philadelphian, ignored The Roots during her appearances. Fallon begged Michaels to rehire him. Thompson and Fey later reconciled on the show by eating a "hoagie of friendship" together. See more »

Really?
6 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I tried supporting Jimmy fallon only because I was a huge fan of late night with conan o brien since 2004. First impression: really nice set with a very nervous host. Months later I have automatically switched to Craig Ferguson after Tonight Show w/ Conan o Brien is over. While Jimmy may not be as nervous as he was before, as many people have stated about the show, everything about it is just... awkward. One thing I have noticed is that he is trying to turn late night into what late night television used to be by adding in various games into the show along with mediocre (at best) skits.

What has really turned me off about Jimmy fallon is that he comes off as a complete tool. Watch his show for a week, and count how many times he says he "loves this show, or this movie, or that". Most hosts will usually just say such and such is a great film or show etc and only on occasion will they say that they really enjoyed the film. Not every bloody half hour. But what really did it for me was when he was talking how he saw Paul Mccartney play and that he, Jimmy, got the same feeling that Paul got from the people who attended his show. Really Jimmy? You're going to compare your viewers to that of Paul McCartney.. a legend.

The good thing about jimmys show is the band: The Roots. Love the improv bits and the occasional air drummer bits mainly because I'm a an (apprentice) drummer myself.
