Jimmy Fallon Everybody

Jimmy Fallon Everybody In the wee hours of this morning, the first in a series of webisodes introducing Jimmy Fallon as the host of The Late Show premiered. And from what I can tell, it's exactly what you'd expect. In the super-short debut clip I watched (so that you don't have to) Fallon didn't really do much in the way of offering a true taste of what the show will be like. He was too busy waxing poetic about all the great late night hosts that preceded him on the hallowed sound stage of Studio 6B and teaching people how the internet is interactive and twitching like he likes to do. Oh, and proclaiming that The Roots is the best band in the history of the world. So ... too early to tell is my point. Not offensively odious, not astoundingly brilliant. Fascinating, I know.

Meanwhile, if you want to brave it yourself (it is only a minute and thirty-six seconds), tell me what you think. Is it a disgrace to the venerable institution of late-night TV? Just so-so? Or does it make you psyched for when the real show makes its debut?
