For a late-night talk show to succeed, it has to do more than making the audience laugh. It has to give the audience a sense of comfort before they go to bed.
In 2014, comic and SNL alum Jimmy Fallon inherited the mantle of host of The Tonight Show. Renamed The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Fallon is the sixth host in a storied line of legendary late-night TV hosts. Following the standard format of opening with a monologue with perhaps a skit and a series of celebrity interviews, this program continues the legacy that started in 1954.
Though I am rarely awake when this program airs, I find myself enjoying it when I am awake. As a host, Fallon comes off as personable, friendly and entertaining.
I recommend it.
