NY Post: Jimmy Fallon Debut ‘Wasn’t Good’

According to the NY Post, Jimmy Fallon’s debut wasn’t bad – but he also wasn’t good.. All this withstanding a HUGE amount of support from top celebrities and mega musicians including, Will Smith, U2, Robert De Niro, Mike Tyson, Tina Fey, Mariah Carey and others.

The Post called out Fallon as, “visibly nervous,” hinting the host only “made it through his first Tonight Show with a little help from his friends, and a lotta help from his city.” Yes, they went all the way there.

NBC is debuting the Fallon regime on Feb. 17 at midnight following the Winter Olympics. It will slip into its regular slot following the local news a week later, with Seth Meyers inheriting “Late Night.”

Fallon says he has talked to “Tonight” show incumbent Jay Leno regularly during the transition. One piece of advice that Fallon has already taken is to increase the length of his monologue.

Although Fallon is moving “Tonight” to New York from the West Coast, he said he will take the show on the road – including to Los Angeles for a couple of weeks a year.
