I've lived in a world where I had nothing but negativity and harsh feelings towards The Tonight Show for the past couple of decades, except for the brief Conan run on the show. It was popular, but it was never more then a lame show filled with sub-par comedy and cookie cutter interviews from a terrible host.
Hence, I quite enjoy this new Jimmy Fallon. The show has sprinted out of the gate, and desperately wants to entertain at every possible moment, and so far it has been a success on all counts. Last night's Kevin Bacon introduction is another in a long line of great talk show moments that The Tonight Show has been skillfully stacking up over the past couple of weeks. Watch for yourself and experience pure joy.
