I think Conan is a good interviewer when he gives a damn about the guest.

This.

I know he's too edgy for mainstream, but Fallon isnt anywhere near as entertaining.

I don't find Ferguson particularly edgy, my issue with him is a lot of episodes just seem like they're shot in his basement, and aren't all that entertaining.

I'm trying out Fallon tonight, I enjoy his show in spurts and don't hate him like everybody else on the internet seems to (seriously, he can knock something out of the park and sure enough "Some shitty group of people did it better!") but it doesn't generally sustain for a full hour. His opening is ridiculously sincere, if a little nervous (albeit less so than the original Late Show episodes), the SD broadcast of this however is really, really bad, there was a shot a second ago where Fallon is talking to Higgins across the stage and neither is on screen (don't have an HD box upstairs).

I used to like Ferguson a lot more than I do now. Still like him, but I think I like Fallon and Kimmel better now.

I like that the set is kind of dark, this is really just Late Night at an earlier time.

That was good. Tina Fey is impressively attractive.

Edit: late to the party I guess. IMO she was the hottest girl that walked out.

Fallon got an impressive list of people to show up to "give him 100 bucks for not believing he would host the Tonight Show'

So far, Jimmy Fallon show is ten times more fun than Jay Leno's.

Well yeah, I don't think anybody on here would expect it to be less entertaining than Leno. The trick will be whether it can be higher rated then Leno.

West Coasters, the set has a lot more wood than Late Night's.

But the set feels more Tonight Show-ish than Late Night's. More classy and jazzed up.

sucks about Leno losing his show just when I saw the perfect article in the paper to bring laughs on headlines.

I think Conan should have kept his show in NY, NY has a different vibe than LA. I dig this though. U2 playing on a roof top, that's awesome.

Agree. I loved Conan in NY, never liked him too much after his move to LA.

Will Smith is a notoriously bad dancer (all things considered) so it's funny that he's the one who did that.
