Could Jimmy Fallon Host "Late Night"?

Could Jimmy Fallon Host "Late Night"?

Apparently the rumors are true: NBC wants Jimmy Fallon to take over for Conan O'Brien when O'Brien makes his expected move to "The Tonight Show" in 2009. "I think he’d be terrific, and he is at the top of our short list," NBC's late-night chief Rick Ludwin told Broadcasting & Cable magazine.

Back in February, when it was first announced that NBC was pursuing Fallon, I said I hoped NBC would broaden its search a bit, maybe considering Jon Stewart — who later dined with NBC execs — or one of a number of very funny female comedians. But it appears all roads lead back to Fallon, so now I've got to ask you: Do you think he's right for the job?
