Do You Like Tech On TV?

Do You Like Tech on TV?

It's been a year since Jimmy Fallon told fans he was planning to bring some geek to his late night talk show. I'm not an avid watcher, but this week I managed to catch a few episodes (mostly thanks to my desire to catch Conan's last week on the Tonight Show).

Two things I noticed immediately: Jimmy Fallon loves both his iPhone and his MacBook Pro — it sits prominently on his desk through the whole show. His iPhone makes plenty of appearances, too; from sketches about real and fictional apps (if you like that segment, you'll love this quiz) to texting on-air.

It doesn't seem like product placement to me, I think he generally uses and loves these gadgets, and I love that he incorporates them into his show. I also love that so many talk show hosts reference services like DVR and Hulu, recognizing that not all viewers watch their shows on live TV; it makes for a modern and realistic watching experience. What about you? Do you think these techy details add to a show, or would you rather they stick to other programming?

I guess I'm gonna have to tune in to Fallon more often! I've never watched his show but I had no idea of the tech element! :)

um obviously its product placement. hes just trying to do it so it doesn't 'look' like product placement. apple has always been one of the highest spenders in throwing their junk into every show/movie they can.
