Pre-emptive RIP The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Also, Conan made this joke in his monologue tonight and it already made its way onto his official Facebook page:

Yeah but for your last show ever? Yeesh.
I haven't seen the episode yet but that seems like a pretty solid indicator of why Leno is getting kicked off this time.

Who wants to see a 60+ year old dude mock Justin Bieber a bunch to an audience of other 60+ year olds?

Holy poo poo, hahaha. I DVR'ed Fallon to see 2Chainz's performance and it caught the tail end of Leno. During Garth Brooks' performance when the audience is singing along, there's this woman singing horribly out of key that you can hear over the rest of the audience.

Haven't seen the rest of the episode yet but that's definitely not an indication of a quality last show.

Conan was a pretty great Tonight Show host too, even though he didn't get the ratings that NBC was hoping for

But yeah, hopefully Fallon will really shine as host of the Tonight Show. I don't always think he's the funniest but he's definitely funnier than Leno, and with the right writers and guests and with the improved budget the Tonight Show has over the Late Night show, he could really breathe new life into that show and bring in a whole new generation that hasn't given a poo poo about Jay Leno. I mean, that's why NBC gave him the job, so hopefully he delivers on it. I wasn't a regular viewer of his Late Night show though I did see it from time to time, but I'll absolutely watch his first few Tonight Shows, and if he seems like he's off to a good start then I'll definitely keep watching.

Conan, for whatever reason, has never gotten me like he has a lot of people. I love the classic Norm interview, but that's more Norm being Norm than anything. He doesn't do anything particularly interesting with the interviews, which is the reason to watch Craig, he doesn't have an awesome band like The Roots that allows Jimmy to do all of those awesome musical bits, and he doesn't really do much in the way of characters/impressions like Fallon either. He's also not super great during the monologues, so that pretty much leaves just the recorded bits/sketches, which definitely can be funny, but it just doesn't add up for me. He's a distant third, and might even be behind Kimmel in my mind as well.
He used to have Max Weinberg, and the interplay between them was always loving hilarious. I really miss that with his new show He has the Basic Cable Band now, and for the most part, they don't do anything interesting. Conan still rips on La Bamba every once in a while but it's not as funny as it used to be when he was doing it on the Late Night show on NBC. Mark Pender doesn't bust out his own songs anymore. Mike (the bassist) is used in skits when Conan's talking about black people and Mike will be shown silently thinking that Conan doesn't know poo poo about black people. But that's basically it as far as band interaction. There's Basic Cable Name That Tune, which is one of my favorite skits on his current show, but the band just plays the tunes and doesn't say anything. Brian Stack is the real star of that bit.

I like his current show and watch it every night it's new, but I'll agree that it's missing some of the charm of his old show(s).

Tonight's Fallon's first Tonight Show. Guests include Will Smith and U2. Who's gonna be watching? I will for at least his first few shows to see how he does. Maybe he'll be nervous at first but ease into it or maybe he'll take off running from the start and keep it up. Guess we'll see tonight.

Harrison Ford on Conan is always amazing. But Harrison Ford on anyone's talk show is usually amazing. One time on Fallon he pierced Fallon's ear.

Paul Rudd is always a great guest and has a great recurring gag that never gets old. Tom Hanks and Conan are always great together as well. Will Ferrel too.
Yeah that's true. Now I forget who it was, but some actress was recently on Conan promoting her movie and showed the clip Paul Rudd always shows. It got a good laugh out of me.
