(Man that’s a clever headline.? I am so witty.)
The Death of Entertainment?or, as some call it, the date Jimmy Fallon takes the “Late Night” reigns from Conan O’Brien?will begin a bit earlier than expected.? Lorne Michaels decided to put Fallon on the Interwebs to “work out as many of the rough spots in his presentation as possible in performances on a website.”
Read: Try his damndest not to suck so terribly that no one watches “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.”? I don’t think it’s possible.? I think Fallon is going to suck hard.? He’s worse than the Iraq War.
If this were any other host?or, indeed, anyone else in the entire fucking world?it’d be an interesting idea.? Michaels intends on posting Fallon’s abortions at 12:30AM every night to get the audience in the menstrual flow.? It affords the unfunny comedian a unique opportunity to generate a “voice” and begin compiling an audience.
However, I find it hard to believe anyone will boot up their PCs during Conan to watch Fallon giggle at his own jokes to the backdrop of a silent, resentful audience.
