He barely does interviews.  I think that concept of the talk show dying vary quickly.  He is sortof doing a variety show.

 

In the old days celebs would do late night to promote their movie.  In the social media world, a facebook/twitter promotion or youtube video is far more effective on getting the word out.

So you do funny gags on Fallon or Kimmell that go viral and people are talking about you.  The interview part has always been the place I didn't care about.  Ususally I just switched at that point.

Does Jimmy Fallon do any interviews, or does he try to be the star every night?

 

I like Fallon and like the bit/shorts I see. I love the manequin (sp? not sure I have ever typed that word) hands sketches he does. I dont watch the show live, I just watch what I hear about. I have heard similar criticism about him and have heard that he can get old on when someone watches the full hour.

 

I want both comedy bits and interviews. A good host can make an interview segment interesting. Well usually.

Malls are dying.  Unless you are a super high end or a mega mall you are done.

I think the biggest problem with Fallon is that so many of his impressions just plain suck. Some are funny most are lame. At least he has fun.

I love Craig Ferguson but he is too wacky for mainstream... His puppets and robot Geoff put the mannequin gigs to shame. And his impressions also stuck but he knows it and plays up how bad they are. And best of all his interviews are watchable because he talks about what he wants to.

I love how Craig does his monologue as stream of consciousness.  Coming out with nothing exactly put down is impressive.  He usually kills it to.

Simmons wrote a great piece about the changing late-night dynamic on his website. 

 

And about John Mulaney, my favorite joke of his is part of his New in Town special:
