    If Fallon believes he can do exactly what he’s doing now in the 11:30 slot man does he need to wake up.

    One of the things I’ve been curious about is what happens with The Roots. Yes I know that they will be Fallon’s band still but what about their style of music. Will it remain hip-hop? Will they have to include some new additions to the band like a brass section? Who knows.

    I am very eager to see how Arsenio Hall does in syndication. If Steve Harvey can get a daytime talk show running smoothly in 2013, I don’t see why Arsenio Hall can’t do it one at night.

  • Brad

    From the New York Daily News…

    His new show has been picked up by stations serving 95% of the country.

    [When on 'The Apprentice'] “Nobody could have been nicer to me than [Jimmy] Fallon, and Jay [Leno] and I are buddies. [Jimmy] Kimmel sent me a check and told me I had to watch his show in return,” says Hall. “You know who your friends are when you do this show. A lot of people pretended they weren’t home when I called.”

    Despite the love he got from future competitors, he’s not really getting why all those nice boys can’t seem to play nice together. “Jimmy [Kimmel] said something like, ‘Jay hasn’t been funny in 20 years, which isn’t fair, because I’ve seen this guy hit the clubs and do standup and just kill it,” he says. “Toe to toe and pound for pound, Jay is still a bad man with a microphone.”

    “The bottom line is that when Jay goes, they’re gonna come for me,” he says. “I’m like a tan version of Leno meets Fallon. Fire away, folks!”

  • Gary Middleton

    “If Fallon believes he can do exactly what he’s doing now in the 11:30 slot man does he need to wake up.”

    He knows. Even Stern last night acknowledged that Fallon’s monologue has been expanding.

    I submit there is virtually no chance the Roots lineup will grow. It’s already a large and expensive band. Will they throw in a few more non- hip hop songs to soothe the older viewers? Very good question.

  • GARebelman

    His monologue has expanded some but the audience does not laugh at it as much as they do Jay’s. Probably because Fallon is NOT good at monologues at all. People say Jay reads the cue cards, Fallon’s face is glued to it the whole time standing in one position unless he goes on a rant.

    I just dont’ see the older audience staying around for Fallon. I honestly don’t know where they will go really. Probably go to bed early.

  • Brad

    Stern my acknowledge it but that doesn’t mean Fallon gets it. However, after watching tonight’s episode I can see him doing fine at 11:30. He might not be the best at but that man man is born to plug things. Plugs Questlove’s book, Seinfeld’s gig, Sony PS4, Ice Cube’s new music, and Brad Pitt’s latest movie World War Z. He even did a little something something with Superman and Subway. He didn’t do them all with such greatness but it didn’t matter. All I saw was dollar signs ($$$).

  • Gary Middleton

    “Stern my acknowledge it but that doesn’t mean Fallon gets it.”

    If Fallon’s monologue is getting longer, it’s because he’s evolving the show for 11:30.

    So on the night Leno gets perhaps his biggest lead-in of the year, his show runs headlong into the freight train of NBA overtime.

  • GARebelman

    Are we not getting overnight reports the whole summer now?

    And the Daily Show with John Oliver is down a bit from Stewart at least in viewers.

  • Neal

    Doug, never say never.

    I’ll bet you anything Fallon does worse than Leno and Fallon will likely lose to either Letterman or Kimmel while Leno was soundly beating both! When that happens the calls for Leno’s return will intensify!

  • Gary Middleton

    GAR, I suspect Oliver’s numbers are materially lower than Stewart’s. But I give everyone who was against the NBA 4th Q/overtime last night a free pass.

  • Nick

    I think the overnight press release guy at NBC is on vacation. It happened a little while ago too. It’s a shame though, because I would’ve loved to see Leno’s rating tonight. The Voice likely hit a 5.0, possibly a 5.5+ in the final minutes of the 10pm hour. The biggest lead-in Leno has had all year, no doubt. I wonder what he was able to do with it.

    Fallon sucks at monologues. Ruins half the jokes in his delivery, the other time he plays dumb like Conan (and that obviously didn’t work at 11:30). I enjoyed on Monday night, however, when The Roots started playing current songs after Stern gave it to ‘em good. They did Blurred Lines spot-on. If they can just continue that at 11:30, they’ll be fine.

  • Gary Middleton

    Nick, I suggest the benefit of the lead-in was significantly offset by the NBA overtime.

    Overtime is killing Jay this week. A 3 period NHL game tonight would have been a very large lead-in. Instead, overtime is almost certainly going to turn tonight into an exclusion.

  • GARebelman

    The NBC press release might point out what Jay’s Tuesday rating was. They sometimes point it out if it is worth noting.

  • Gary Middleton

    GAR, if they don’t point it out that would probably tell us something too.

  • Ann

    So how soon do you think Paula Deen will do the talk show rounds doing her mea culpa for using the “n” word and having black people dress as slaves for her antebellum theme nuptials?

  • GARebelman

    Jimmy Fallon’s show tonight is almost unwatchable and I am not even at the thirty minute mark. Holy crap >_>

  • Gary Middleton

    Amazing that we still have occasional visitors questioning the significance of 10 pm lead-ins. Last week Kimmel had his best ever week with just 2 original episodes.

    If I understand the ABC release, it implies that Leno still won the week in 18-49.

  • Nick

    Seems like from the press release, Leno still did win the week, despite losing Tuesday and Thursday. Although Kimmel won in 18-34.

    I’m guessing this week will be the same way.

    However, Kimmel’s primetime specials have been on par or below last year’s.

    Next week and on will be a far more telling story.
