    I love Jimmy Fallon, he is refreshing and multi-talented, he can sign, dance and he is funny. He beats Conan all to pieces. If Jay ever decides to go I hope they choose Jimmy.

    I think the people laugh because nobody is laughing at his jokes. the roots are probably the only reason i watch not including the clips and hashtag skits.

    Just awful.
    This guy doesn't know how to interview people, and his jokes revolve around retelling the guests' jokes.
    Unfunny jokes with weird timing and an unpleasant host personality.
    Jimmy Fallon should stick to sketch-writing, because this is just awful.

    Late Night with Jimmy Fallon is the best talk show ont v right now, it´s funny, creative. And Jimmy Fallon is a really talented host he´s even good at singing. The Roots also give the show a great ambient, they are always ready to play songs at any moment.

    Even granting lots of leeway for opening-night nerves, this was a pretty bad beginning for the Saturday Night Live alum.

    An attempt to be silly like O’Brien, his Late Night predecessor, instead had a trying-too-hard feel that approached Carson Daly territory (a place you do not want to be).

    On a late-night show, either the non-interview comedic bits have to be inspired, or the interviews have to be smooth. With a few exceptions, neither worked all that well during Fallon's first show. The comedy frequently fell flat, and as a host, Fallon is underwhelming at the moment.
