Jimmy Fallon

Jimmy Fallon's crushing his competition -- partially because NBC's making one helluva deal for celebs to come on his show, and stay off all the other networks.

It's the kind of hard bargaining ... expert negotiators can appreciate.

Jimmy is a breath of fresh air compared to Leno.

Fallon's just not good enough for late night. I'll stick with Letterman and Charlie Rose on PBS.

Fallon's bits are juvenile and witless. He has no interviewing skills whatsoever. He panders and fawns over guests with fake, forced laughs. He's repeating everything he did on Late Night and it's old and boring. How many dance histories is he going to repeat with Timberlake?

Another mistake to chalk up to NBC. People will get bored with him and his ratings will slowly tank.

Screw NBC! I hope a A List star brings it up on his show. Until then I will watch Jimmy Kimmel who is much funnier imho!

It baffles me how Fallon is killing it in The late night talk show war of viewerdhip ratings. Fallon is worst then Conan. Fallon has a dry face & is too nice. He's turning the tonight show into SNL skits, monday through friday!!!

Shows you how much confidence NBC really has in Fallon..... Not much. Hope celebs don't cave and go along with this. Fallon will fail if you force celebs to choose.

This will ultimately backfire on NBC. Celebrities are under contract with their studio to make the promotional rounds for their product (movies, etc.). The studio's will not forfeit the loss of viewers from the other networks which would impact their bottomline financially.

Not true TMZ. Saw Annette Bening on Kelley & Michael earlier this week, before she was on Fallon. Also Liam Neeson.
