I like little Jimmy Fallon but he’s not Tonight Show calibre. And Trump is a good sport here.
I must disagree sorta kinda. The “age” of the Tontight Show is over and has been for some time. There are some, like yourself and me, who still would like a more genuinely diverse late night talk show to still exist – one on which “people” seem to interact in a more spontaneous and immediate manner, the banter is more sophisticated, and the chat far more intelligent. But our demographic is smaller and not terribly interested in television anymore.
Having said all that, I must also admit that my exposure to the latest version of the Tonight Show is strictly via online clips. And they are frequently very funny. I find Jimmy Fallon to be quite multitalented and genuinely original. I have not seen him interview an “intellectual heavyweight” like Thomas Sowell, so I really cannot comment on Fallon’s “gravitas”.
they are all very Democrat friendly or cheerleaders
I had Craig Ferguson for ten years so I am really cossetted.
Could not agree more. I miss him. Craig was/is really funny and smart, self-deprecating (very rare!) without being snivelling (rarer still!)
Jay was better.
Johnny Carson was the best, which is why he lasted 30 years and could have stayed longer if he didn’t feel ready to retire.
This is why many good folk will vote for Mulcair or Justin—
They enjoy being lied to—again and again and again.
I don’t know that much about the history of US Presidential primaries, but have we just crossed some sort of line here? Is this the new reality [TV]?
We have not “crossed some sort of line here”, but Trump HAS brought the presidential campaigns into the ElectronicMediaAge – at least his own.
And his campaign has ENSLAVED the mainstream media. Trump’s campaign is all over the MSM, and Trump pays them Not A Dime. The MSM’s coverage of Donald makes it more money. Meanwhile, other candidates pay and eat Donald’s dust…
Donald https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=nyXyxLiDtHocampaign alone is a MASTERFUL STUDY IN ECONOMY & ROI..
Why not, Obama’s been using Late night TV as a forum for the past seven years, including his “Special” Olympics gaff.
