A guy who puts people to sleep is now trying to keep them awake

    Jimmy Fallon thinks keeping people awake will be his biggest challenge as he takes over for Conan O'Brien. Good luck with that, suckboy.

    I shouldn't wish Failure on anyone, but I can't wait for this to flop.

    "Taxi" was a classic, the greatest film of my generation.
  3. Will Fallon do what he did during SNL and just laugh throughout the entire show? I don't know if there's anything more lame than a person laughing at their own jokes.

    I can see this flopping multiple ways. If he tries to mimic Conan's minimalist-absurd-self-deprecating style, he could come off as too copy-cat like, or he just wouldn't be able to sustain it. If he tries to go over-the-top silly with some pre-guest skits and jokes, it would just be cartoonish. What I probably see happening is he won't be composed, won't develop a style/voice for the show, and it'll just be painful to watch.

    I work with a girl who laughs obnoxiously at her own jokes.

    Even worse when he's the only one laughing.

    What a no-talent tool. On my irrational hate list, he's at or near the top.
