Late Night With Jimmy Fallon...

Here's the deal: I like Jimmy Fallon. I don't think he's hilarious. But I like him...

As a cast member on SNL, he was terrible. He constantly broke character to look at the camera, laughed during sketches, and looked at cue cards. He was good opposite Tina Fey in Weekend Update, but that's because Tina is amazing. She can make anyone look good.

So it pains me to say this but... I really like Jimmy's incarnation of Late Night so far. I mean, slow jam the news? The Roots? Him and Justin Timberlake trading John Mayer impressions? So far, so good Jimmy. So far, so good...

I gave him a shot twice this week. One sketch was funny but the other stuff wasn't as good. The laughter also felt forced from the audience.

I checked out his twitter and he apparently got comments from people about the same thing bc he responded to one twitter-user "never canned laughter. We have a kick axx live studio audience, baby!!! come see us live!"

I've give him some time. Everyone needs a good learning curve.
