In other words, Fallon can be patient for a few years. Fallon has a key backer inside NBC in Lorne Michaels, the executive producer of "Saturday Night Live" who also executive produces "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon."

fallon is on his way to being one of the greats, his direction with the show is right on the money with the focus on an honest personality and musical aspect not seen before...and yes he does have the best band in late night and his personal interaction with the entertainment and spontanious musical outbreaks is great.
Oh ya...leno sucks and Jimmy and conan rock..had to get that in their, thanks

Jimmy Fallon seems like a nice enough guy, but he really doesn't measure up to the "late show host" challenge. His zingers, ad libs, and monologues are very BORING! Do you notice how bored the guests are? Jimmy should stick with SNL stuff, where everything is scripted and rehearsed. Most of us get fired when we suck at our jobs, but I guess he lives a charmed life. He's actually a really hot guy, so maybe that's what's keeping him on the air.

I do believe if NBC put Jimmy Fallon on at 11:30 PM EST , they would be shocked at the standings, I am surprised they have not tried that yet. Jimmy is smart, talented, good looking, is in great shape and he will do anything on his show, whatever it takes , it is funny witty and awesome, more population needs to see him, Mark my words on that :-)

Jimmy has captured the joy and fun of the Carson years. His show is hip without being elitist and funny without being bitter. He goes sparingly on the political humor or gross out jokes that Conan lives on. He is drawing star power guests and the way Jimmy involves them in games and interaction with the audiance is great. I long ago abandoned all of the talk show hosts but Jimmy has brought us back. I am all for him and hope he does inherit the tonight show because he will make it fun again.

Fallon still stinks and will never live up to Leno.
