Jimmy Fallon, as expected, will get the late-night talk-show slot at NBC when Conan O’Brien moves to “The Tonight Show” in 2009. So whadda think? Does Jimmy have what it takes? Tina Fey, who worked with Fallon on SNL, said Fallon would be an ideal fit in an interview last year.
“I think it’s a great idea. He’s really funny and loves to talk to people; it must be that Irish charm. Hosting a talk show is so hard, having to do the comedy and the interview skills, but I actually think he’s really well suited for it.”
