    NBC has proved its incompetence yet again. Fallon is a unfunny hack that laughs at his own jokes. I cant stand two minutes of his annoying voice.

    Regardless of how he does, they have to stick with him, right? I mean, can Leno come in and take the TS back AGAIN?

    I wonder whether Leno has a no-compete clause? If so, how long? Does he jump to another network one way or the other?

    NBC bro.

    And Fallon is an upgrade from Jay.

    Jay stole Stuttering John from the Show and Howie hates him.

    Watch Letterman. :)

    He's perfect for the job. Midwestern appeal. Inoffensive. And a pretty damn talented comedic musician. I actually think he's a great choice.

    I hope he burns the first week, and Jay gets on another network and kills in the ratings. I don't care for the whole late night, or jay, but I want him to do go to piss howard off and the dumbasses at nbc.

    Jimmy will lose ground to Letterman, but I doubt they'll bring Leno back. Lorne's unfunny ass is now in control of everything - 6 nights a week.

    Hell, he could survive there with a 0.6 rating as long as his salary demands aren't ridiculous.

    Jay Leno is an unfunny hack, and he lasted 22 years.

    So I predict Jimmy Fallon, who turns 40 this year, will retire from The Tonight Show in 2040 at age 65.



    Jimmy is the Jay Leno of 20 years ago. Most people will love him, but people with discerning taste will hate him.


    What's funny:

    Johnny Carson was born in 1925.

    Jay Leno was born in 1950 (25 years later).

    Jimmy Fallon was born in 1974 (24 years later).

    So Fallon's Tonight Show successor was probably born in 2000 or 1999.
