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?

I don't really like Conan. I like Jay. Jimmy? I liked him in SNL, so I guess I'd have to see.

Wow, you'd think they'd be interesting in having someone who is funny for that job. Fever Pitch and Taxi were both enormous bombs!

I like the guy, but I don't see that working out. I don't think he has late night host qualities. I wouldn't see his show lasting very long.

The thing is, I can't stand Jay Leno. He may be an institution, but that doesn't mean I have to like him. Now, I love Conan. And Jimmy. So that kind of combination makes me happy. I love Jon Stewart too, but I think he's doing too well at his current show to want him to move to another one. And I dislike Carson Daly. So as long as he's not on the list. Hwahaha. :)

Really? If that's the case, then maybe they should create a whole other show for him featuring his "Boston Teens" character, Sully. I could see him doing that. Hosting Late Night, I just can't fathom him doing that.

I thought Jimmy was a Yankees fan. Not saying that you have to be a Yankees fan and be a New Yorker, but... I thought it was just his character in Fever Pitch that was a Red Sox fan and not him. I can see him on the show. :)

He'd be a better choice if the "Late Night" show consisted of talk about Boston-area sports, mainly centered on the Red Sox. I personally think he's a bad choice, there's finally something whiplashgirlchild and I agree on. He's gotten to be so damn annoying since he left Saturday Night Live.

I think he would be a good choice. He's sweet and goofy but not that funny which I think can actually be an asset for a host- funny enough to lighten the mood and keep things going but not so funny as to detract from the guest.

i think he would really be fun and much better than Jon Stewart who is doing better on his own show. I would love Jimmy as the new host.

I think he could. Not to mention it would be great to see him on TV again! To be honest, I'm still hoping NBC keeps Leno around. Conan isn't ready for the top spot yet.

I like Jimmy Fallen's everyman quality, which also works for Conan. I think he could be really funny on this.
