The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon - Forever Thread SPOILERS

I thought it was a good debut episode. It didn't bowl me over, but was petty solid. All those years on Late Night have seasoned Jimmy Fallon well. I can see him lasting a long time. And hope he does.

I agree. I enjoyed the walk-ons from all the stars too.

It was kind of fun. He seemed a little wonky, but I really like him. He's a very talented and funny guy, so I hope he settles in well.

Also enjoyed the walk-on segment. That was funny. I kept thinking - who's next? Elvis?

Thanks for putting that up, Peter. I just watched again and it's just as funny. Colbert - good line.

I liked it. He didn't really stray from the format of his previous show which I appreciated. I set a season pass. I was really hoping for a U2 song on classroom instruments bit though.

Fallon said that this was the first Tonight Show broadcast from New York in 40 years.

I don't think that's correct though.
Didn't Leno take the Tonight Show to New York for a week a couple of times?
(While Letterman to his show to Los Angeles.)

Maybe he meant "regularly scheduled" and not a special week-long?

I didn't know Joan Rivers had been banned from the Tonight Show for nearly 30 years.
That makes seeing her there that much better.

I haven't particularly liked Jimmy in the past, but I thought he did a great job on his new Tonight Show.

It would have been really funny if Jay Leno had been the last one out paying the bet.

Jimmy's off to a good start!

Yah, something like that would have been a great idea. It was funny, but after the first few it was a bit overkill, and didn't make much sense.

Had to shake it up a bit. How about his mom coming out and paying him $100, or something like that.

Maybe Lorne Michaels?

I know it's hard to imagine for todays audiences, but back then, screwing with Johnny Carson was a seriously bad idea. Johnny was grooming her to be his replacement, then she went over to compete with him instead.

I liked how he thanked Jay, but it was in the midst of thanking all ofthe previous hosts.

Is that the same studio they used for Late Night? It looks tiny.

I think Fallon is a pretty affable guy. I like him more than the other late night hosts. He'll probably do well.

But, this seems like the Jimmy Fallon show at 11:35, more than the Tonight Show. Same band, same co-host. I haven't been a big watcher of his previous show, but it seems the main differences are the new (old) studio and it's from New York.

Sure.

Remember, Jay never had his own show before he became the host of Tonight Show.

I think it's a different studio just down the hall from his Late Night show. Sounds like it's actually the same studio Carson used before he moved the show to Burbank. I thought the studio seemed a bit weird. Small, but not necessarily intimate.

With months of prep time, I figured they would have come up with a really funny sketch or two for the debut episode. I never watched Late Night, but I'll keep this as a Season Pass for now.

The U2 performance at the top of Rock Center against the Manhattan skyline at sunset was pretty killer.

Fallon's Tonight Show debut scored well in the ratings, pulling a 3.8 in demo, matching Leno's second departure show (both shows had the Olympics as lead ins).

Total viewers was lower though with 11.3 million tuning in for for Fallon versus 14.6 million to see Leno leave.

(Sadly, that 3.8 is better than most of NBC's primetime lineup.)

These are atypical viewing conditions though and a better indicator will be 4 to 8 weeks down the line.

Or if Leno came out and took back the show while Fallon was interviewing Smith.

Carson was reported to be very hurt by her actions and basically crushed her.
That's how much power Johnny wielded in those days and why I never believed the suppositions that he was forced out.
(Lorne Michaels probably wields that type of power now.)

But he was the permanent guest host for three or four years before Carson retired.

It's the same studio that Fallon used when he started late night and until recently.

When he got the tonight show they moved late night to studio 6A from 6B to an exact replica of the late night set.

They then constructed the new Tonight Show set in 6B. I guess Fallon probably had a choice to have the show wherever he wanted and he chose to keep his current studio.

Well, 6B is where The Tonight Show was when it was previously in NYC with Jack Paar and Johnny Carson, before Carson moved it to Burbank, so it kind of had to go into 6B rather than 6A. I'm sure it would have been much easier logisitically to leave Late Night in 6B and construct the new Tonight Show set in 6A, but that just wouldn't be "coming home" the way it is in 6B.

Another thing I thought last night during U2's rooftop appearance. The suits and insurance people must have been freaking out with a big name band and all those people at the top of 30 Rock.

Maybe. But I know when Letterman has had his rooftop concerts the audience has been made up entirely of Late Show staffers and their friends.

Is there room in the 6B studio to have a live band perform? Is there a space off to the left like on Leno's set?

Yeah, I mean there is whatever is going on behind that curtain, also directly in front where Fallon does his Monologue, if they had time to set up.

I never watched much of Fallon's Late Night, but he had live bands play, didn't he? Also, I know Letterman and Conan had live bands play as well. So there must be room. But it certainly doesn't have the space that Leno's, Kimmel's, and Letterman's studios have, which might actually be a good thing. I always felt like Leno was a mile away from his band, and it seemed like an afterthought whenever he included them in the show.
