YESSS!! That was freakin awesome! Man, the Lost producers couldn't have picked a better actor to portray Ben. Btw, thanks for this blog, finally came into the know with your blog about 2 wks ago.

you'll notice that he was promoting the 2 hour season finale of LOST on May 13th.

Ben said...

OH MY GOD. Surely this is a sick prank. Really??? Jimmy Fallon has his own show?

(commence vomiting now)

nms said...

If by wierd you mean AWESOME, then ok.

Eryn said...

Fallon is the new Conan... and Conan will be the new Leno.

madewell said...

oh, I meant weird in a great way.

And where have you been Ben?? Under a rock? Yeah, Jimmy Fallon is the new Conan.

Cody said...

"Fallon is the new Conan... and Conan will be the new Leno."

Only in the timeslot sense, right? In my opinion, Conan is awesome. Leno and Fallon are not.

The Armeniac said...

I 2nd that emotion Cody. Fallon is clearly the new Sinbad, but without Sinbads charm and talent. Is referencing Sinbads talk show showing my advanced age?

madewell said...

Sinbad had a talk show?

Was he ever in a Disney movie?

The Armeniac said...

Disney movies from the 90's would be your dept. Late night talk shows from the 90's would be mine.

I was getting already to diss on Fallon myself, before watching the video. You see, I've never really been a fan of Fallon, but that interview and sketch that I just watched was actually entertaining. Although, it was mostly Micheal Emerson, whoever is writing for Fallon and decided that Emerson should read that story "creepy" is pretty damn funny.

Either way, Late Night tv is getting close to fucking up big time.

I like Letterman, 'cause of my dad.

madewell said...

Letterman is waaaay funnier then Leno.

But then again, we have the same dad.

Cody said...

Fallon has some good writers working for him, including A.D. Miles and anthony Jeselnik (sp?). The writing is fine. But Fallon's habit of constantly laughing during everything he does totally grates on my nerves on his talk show (though I didn't seem to hate it on SNL as much as everyone else.) He' also just really bad at interviewing folks. Though maybe I'm being unfair, considering I've only seen his show twice. Maybe he'll get better.

Speaking of late night TV in the 90's, I used to beg my sister to stay up and watch Arsinio Hall with me. I specifically remember a bit about "which came first, the can opener or the can?" And thinking it was the funniest shit ever when I was like, 10 years old.

Eryn said...

Yeah, Fallon has huge shoes to fill. Cody, I never noticed that he is constantly laughing, but now that you mention it, that's right, and that is annoying... I saw a good skit the other day where he had the #1 college quarterback on there (don't know enough to know his name or care) and Jimmy was throwing plates into the air that the QB was throwing footballs at and breaking in mid-air, like a trap shoot. It was pretty damn cool.

I just hope Conan doesn't "tone down" his act when he goes to the more mainstream tonight show.

I guess talking about late night show hosts is tiding us over this week while Lost is off the air?
