I don’t know. Is this good? I can’t tell.
Jimmy could be making a serious run to break Conan’s “shortest stint as Tonight Show host” record that’s been standing strong for 4 years. I guess that’s the play. I mean, numbers don’t lie. From the 2010 NBC debacle, Conan made out with $45 million and was legally required to take every day off work for like a year. Must be nice.
From these early showings, Fallon might be onto something and it seems like the Late Night crowd is starting to master the playbook: land deal as Tonight Show host, do everything possible to prevent people from laughing, cash in.
