There's been a lot of hype surrounding Jimmy Fallon taking over the Tonight Show, especially considering the last time someone else took over the Tonight Show, NBC practically begged Jay Leno to return to his old slot.
I have a feeling that won't happen this time.
Jimmy Fallon set the world on fire last night, absolutely killing it during his first night as host of the Tonight Show. From a bit of celebrity after celebrity [including Joan Rivers, who was banned from NBC for almost the last 30 years] coming out and handing Fallon money for his accomplishment of becoming host of the show [also including a fantastic cameo from Stephen Colbert], to the evolution of hip-hop dancing with Will Smith, Fallon and his writers are nothing short of geniuses. Proof of that is below.
As far as a late night comedy talk show, I think we're in good hands.
