Can Jimmy Fallon even talk to people?

Posted on

Fallon_lSorry, P-Dubs, if you’ve been wondering what the hell has been going on. There were server issues. Seems to be a “Tuesday afternoon” thing. The Moody Blues probably need to stop controlling our blog.

Anyway, NBC’s confirmed that Jimmy Fallon is “at the top of our short list” to replace Conan O’Brien as host of NBC’s later late-night show in 2009. Conan will replace Leno, obvs, thank God, so someone needs to come on after that and be vaguely funny. (Here’s how Fallon did “on trial” in 2006.) The great news is that we’ll all be able to go to bed earlier. Also, 2009? Seems really far away. I wouldn’t be surprised if, right before then, I spontaneously combust and all that remains in my place is a puddle of coffee, candy, and the congealed mass of unrelated viral video miscellany that has, by that point, thoroughly replaced my brain. So, questions:

Will society make it to 2009?
What about Lindsay?
Who should replace Conan, if not Jimmy Fallon?
