Fire Jimmy Fallon. Case closed.

January 8th, 2010 // 85 Comments

With Jay Leno’s move to 10 PM being yet another retarded decision for NBC, the network is now moving him back to his old time-slot at 11:35 where Conan O’Brien currently hosts The Tonight Show. The AP has the details on the proposed line-up:

The network, contemplating disappointing ratings for Leno’s new prime-time show, is weighing a plan to return him to the 11:35 p.m. EST slot he held for 17 years as “Tonight Show” host, a person familiar with the discussions said on condition of anonymity over a lack of authority to address the issue publicly.
NBC executives on Thursday discussed a scenario that would include a half-hour Leno show at 11:35 p.m. EST, sending “Tonight” with Conan O’Brien to 12:05 a.m. and Jimmy Fallon’s “Late Night” to 1:05 a.m., the person said.

TMZ reports that NBC is essentially treating Conan like a red-headed step-child and giving him the ultimatum of accepting the new line-up or getting the fuck out. The only good news out of this whole debacle is that absolutely no one has voiced any concern about the fate of Jimmy Fallon, so clearly the easy solution is to restore Jay and Conan to their previous shows/time-slots and shank Fallon in the neck leaving him for dead in a sewer.

Then again, I’m counting on NBC to not handle this in the worst way possible. Ha! I’m adorable.

    NEVER watched Fallon. No one I know has ever watched Fallon. No one wants to either. Rip his heart out of his chest like a gummy bear please.

    Doesn’t matter to me, I watch good TV instead, i.e. Craig Ferguson. Like 49 said the man has talent. He can even handle awkward interviews masterfully.

    they REALLY should just cancel the jimmy fallon show. or at least bring him back on later when leno finally retires. i can go on hours about how horrible the jimmy fallon show is. he is horrible at delivering jokes, cant even look at the camera directly and just stares at the note cards the whole time. plus his sense of humor is that of a 14 year old. he laughs at the stupidest shit. i feel bad for the roots. sometimes you can tell they dont even like being there based off their facial expressions

  4. Conan

    I see Jimmy Falon has been on here posting a lot of positive comments about himself under . Go back to Engadget sir, there is no need to make up comments about how great you are.

  5. he has two neckerchief? red and grey

    Leno needs to leave and take his boring pet cat stories with him.
    Conan should walk away if they make him move to a later time slot.
    If you like Leno, you must be a fucking idiot.

  7. Not such a good move by NBC. The pic with word smell is really hilarious.

    Fallon is a train wreck. I actually feel sorry for him, watching him sweat as he attempts jokes that fall soooo flat. Conan is brilliant, Jay is good but a tad predictable. Yes, fire poor Fallon and let him go away with what little dignity he has left…

    leno needs to get the f*ck out. what a jerk. i love conan and i hope he walks from nbc, he is the most talented one their. i tried to watch letterman, and he is just not funny most times. ferguson is immature and stupid, and i have always thought he seemed arrogant. he is like people ive worked with in restaurants big personality, but not a good personality. and fallon’s show is awful.

  10. jzz

    this is the same network that gave Carson the douche Daly his own show.
    So You know they are gonna F this up.
    They might as well put leno back in the tonight show and have conan sit on the couch as a sidekick as he slowly dies inside.
    They should just fire leno, his show sucks ass.

  11. mzz

    leno is not that funny. jimmy has actually grown on me a lot. love his real housewives of late night series

  12. Jeff

    if there is a god i know its conan, this is fuckin ridiculous what theyre trying to do, but what the fuck do you expect from nbc?! god should tell nbc to fuck the fuck off and go to fox, it could be like the old late night days on that channel, but crazier! and he could make hella money, just fuckin retire leno you fuckin suck and fallon how the fuck did he get late night?!

  13. bridget

    How about they fire Carson Daly already…

  14. Leno is a more experienced stand up – he rarely blows a joke. Conan is just good now, and he was outstanding in his old job. He’s not a good tonight show host, because that slot is not like his old late night show and he is not a new carson or even a new leno.

  15. EricLR

    NBC is bringing back Leno to try and keep that valuable 70-95 demographic.

  16. The Superficial for President! I watched one of Fallon’s monologues a few weeks ago and it was still as agonizingly clunky as the first. He had a few characters I liked on SNL though.

  17. Laundrytoes

    Conan deserves more time as the Tonight Show host.

  18. Burt

    Whatever. It’s not as if these shows are live anyways.

  19. brian

    I Got an Idea get rid of Carson daily no one wants to watch carson daily at fricken 1:30 am I believe more people would watch leno at that time

  20. AMO

    Has NBC thought about Leno getting the f#@k out? HE’S the one that’s not getting the ratings… Why mess with anyone else’s time slot’s? Let’s lose the loser and go on with the show. Leno sux!

  21. Rough: please pardon my negro dialect

    Ha! you know if all these edgy tv watchers that recognize “funny” would actually watch Conan, he wouldnt be in this situation…

  22. Fox Mulder

    Fallon is the smartest person on late night and best thing going on NBC, ever since Conan moved to L.A. and lost much of what made his original show great.

    Jay should do the smart thing and go out gracefully and leave the other two alone. His ship has sailed.

    Fallon’s show is awesome. Thank goodness for DVR!

  23. Fuck NBC! Conan should shove his big ass foot up there asses and tell them to grow some balls and kill that boring thing Jay Leno calls a show.

  24. Will

    Redeem yourself, superficial writer. Out of Leno, Obrien and Fallon, if you had to shank one in the neck, it’d be Leno for sure.

    And if you don’t agree, then you’re an idiot.

  27. Blasto

    Conan sucks now. They should put it the way it was, Jay’s monologues are good drunk watching.

    Hey Hey! Hey!

    Don’t fire jimmy!! He’s a good guy! He waited 5 minutes for me to buy a disposable camera when I met him at JFK!!

    He might not be the funniest guy, but, he cares about fans.
