Things would have been so much easier for the average cynical blogger if Jimmy Fallon had failed miserably at the reins of “Late Night.” But not only has Fallon pulled solid ratings since taking Conan O’Brien’s late-night slot, he’s actually… **looks around nervously** … kind of good. I mean, I’m not watching every night or anything, but when I do check in, he’s doing cool stuff like TuSpock or being surprisingly quick on his feet while interacting with the audience.
The clip above — “Head Swap” — is a good example of him going an entirely different direction with a standard gimmick of late-night shows. With offbeat skits like this, Fallon just might be — and I fear your reprisals for saying this — an acceptable replacement for Conan after all. Y’know, maybe that Lorne Michaels fellow has a future in the television industry.
