Late Night Leftists
 
I haven't watched Fallon yet, but diLorenzo makes some good observations imo. So I thought this comment was revealing about why Leno may have been let go.

So Johnny Carson’s former head writer authors an article claiming that Jay Leno was canned from “The Tonight Show” despite fabulous ratings because he made jokes about BOTH political parties, including jokes about King Obama.

[Article here and it's pretty good too. He mentions has Carson did not like to be seen with politicians and did not reveal his politics.
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywo...r-hosts-obama]

His replacement, Jimmy Fallon, had as one of his first guests the always-cheerful-and-entertaining Michelle Obama. Meanwhile, the guy who got Fallon’s gig at the other late-night show, Seth Myers, has as one of his first guests on the first night of his new show the buffoonish Joe Biden. Gotta wonder what Jay thinks of this. Michelle and Joe had to have been booked a long time in advance, one would think, which suggests that the plan was always to remake these shows into an Obama administration love-fest.

(Get a load of the “I think I just peed my pants” expressions on Fallon and Myers while in the presence of King Obama and Biden, respectively, in the pictures in the links). LMAO

UPDATE: Ellen F. writes to say that Fallon has been making jokes about Edward Snowden, calling him a “tattletale,” whereas Jay Leno would have made jokes about the NSA [and TSA]. LMAO

Leno is a known liberal and has appeared on Bill Maher's show, etc.

But he takes shots at both sides. Fallon starts early with a love fest on the Obamas.

I've barely watched SNL since Fallon was on, but does he even have talent? The dude sucked ass and couldn't keep a straight face on the show for so long, and I don't care how funny it was to some people. He's shitty at sketch comedy. So now that makes him qualified to take the premier late night talk show spot?

Like, is he a standup comedian? Does he have other things he's done? Was he ever a writer like Conan used to be? There's gotta be something else to him. I know he does songs, but ****, any butthole can do that.

I don't watch much of late night talk shows anymore, but from what I've seen Fallon does good bits. As far as the interviews I don't know. I don't care about the celeb interviews. But that's not just Fallon, that's always been the case no matter the host. The interviews are usually crappy.
There does seem to be some fawning over the Obama White House at NBC. I'm sure they'd be happy to put a Republican President or Fisrt Lady on, though. The problem is Republicans can't get their heads out of their asses long enough to get a quality candidate, and even if they do the person would probably end up saying no to an interview request.

It did seem weird to me to put Michelle and Biden on the first week. It almost was like, "Hey, we're liberal!"

I haven't really watched him lately, but I couldn't watch his late night show because he always seemed like he was just really bad at reading a tele-prompter. They guy can stumble through the most simple sentence like he's translating it from Japanese.

And yes, he's a liberal douche, and pretty loud about it. Leno would take shots at both sides, and he seemed comfortable in his own skin, where Fallon does not.

Thanks Leno and thanks for the novelty of a new show.

The left doesn't do well in the ratings for news in prime time or on radio for example, but one place where they have carved out a niche is in the comedy arena. Daily Show, Colbert, Late Night TV, etc. They are probably trying to move him toward the Stewart model to capture that crowd.

blaise 02-26-2014 01:04 PM

Fallon's ratings will be fine even after they go down. Either way they're sticking with him for the long run. He gets stuff going viral quite a bit. I don't know if Meyers will be the same, but I think they're giving him a long leash no matter what, so both of them are going to be around for quite a long time.

Sure

cosmo20002 02-26-2014 01:14 PM

So having the VP and the president's wife on your show means you're a "leftist?" Or a "commie?"
Some of you are just ****ing nuts.

Sure what? Sure, Leno started off immediately like in his first week having Obama on his show?

Just makes the show a political show and not an entertaining one. Joe" Shotgun" Biden is only funny in that he's a buffoon and amazing that anyone could be stupid enough to vote for him. Michelle "Chewy" Obama makes kids want to slit their wrists when she opens her lobster chewing mouth to speak of the virtues of carrots and broccoli.
Fallon' s problem is that he's just not funny.
