    Thank YOU NBC!
    This is going to be awesome! One whole hour!!! YES!
    Jimmy Fallon’s ability to perform as Young, Bowie, Dylan is so amazing and even though it supposed to be a comic thing…you laugh but I really enjoy the songs as well.
    Jimmy has that spark that people like, it seems to me that I am not the only one who enjoys his enthusiasm and happy personality
    His guest look comfortable and seem to really enjoy playing with him.
    I’m looking forward to see this show ~ Dri Guerra

    Jimmy Fallon should make this a pre-Olympic special. Heard he’ll be in London (along with much of the rest of the NBC family) and do those thank you notes on one of NBC’s primetime shows (just as he did in Vancouver). Wonder what he’ll write about? Hopefully something Olympics-related…
