    How awful is Jimmy Fallon?

    Has anyone else suffered through his show? I watched it once and will probably never turn it on again. First off, his montage is awful...nothing but speeding through rehearsed jokes. Jay, Dave and Conan all tell the scripted jokes but still have an element of spontaneuity and creativity. Then his interviews are just terrible, with him stuttering and giggling through the entire thing. I also never got the impression he had any authority over the interview, but rather the guest was rambling on and Fallon replied with "yah" through the whole interview.

    What do all of you think about the show?

    How anyone could be surprised that it is horrible is beyond me.

    He has a montage every show? That's impressive.

    Re: How awful is Jimmy Fallon?

    How long have Dave, Jay, and Conan been doing their shows???

    I think he's probably about as good as Conan was in his first two weeks, which as I recall, was not exactly stellar...

    Agreed... Give the guy a chance. Heck, we're giving McDermott until 2015!

    Please don't insult Leno and Letterman by including Conan in the same league as them. Conan was/is a good comedic writer, but his delivery is not good. Not as bad as he used to be, but still a distant 3rd to Jay and Dave.

    Jimmy Fallon was terrible on SNL and in pretty much every movie he's ever made. I think the guy needs to take some ritalin or something, or stop drinking 15 cups of coffee a day. Relax dude!

    I couldn't disagree more. I think Conan's delivery is by far the most funny of those three. Jay and Dave are so boring.

    I guess its a personal taste thing.

    Leno's delivery is terrible, the guy is as a hackneyed stereotype of a stand up comedian. "Have you seen this, have you heard about this?" I feel like I'm watching jimmy on south park.

    Re: How awful is Jimmy Fallon?

    how does a guy like Fallon continue to get work? He must have pictures of Dick Ebersol with a monkey or something. It's ridiculous. You'd think that after "Taxi" he'd have been banished to the WB by now.

    Whateva! Jimmy's wicked awesome bro!

    Actually, I did like Jimmy on SNL awhile back, but haven't seen his new show, so I guess I'll reserve judgement on that.

    Re: How awful is Jimmy Fallon?

    Did he get through the show without uncontrollable giggling like he couldn't do on SNL?

    Re: How awful is Jimmy Fallon?

    Conan was horrible the first 6 months and then he started to figure out his role. I would give Jimmy Falon a few months to figure it out before I make a judgement.

    Fallon has sucked his whole career, waiting a few months won't fix anything.
