Not Your Father's Tonight Show

When Jimmy Fallon takes over as host of NBC's "Tonight Show," viewers will be treated to a new and very contemporary series of television. Gone are Steve Allen and Johnny Carson and retired will be Jay Leno who competed mightily with David Letterman over the past decade or two.

In Jimmy Fallon, who replaced Conan O'Brien after the NBC botched the Tonight Show Shuffle Leno-to-O'Brien debacle, we will have a truly funny, innovative and versatile host of much more than a talk show. Fallon hosts an entertainment show and his comedy routines bring out the best.
