Flashback Friday-The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (2014-Present)

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.

Feeling Old

Jimmy Fallon has great taste in television. And he has made me feel quite old. A few years ago, he reunited the California Dreams cast.

This morning, a youtube video was released of a partial Saved By The Bell Reunion. The 90’s child in me did a happy dance.

Happy Thursday!
