He's just too "gee golly gosh". Sometimes you just want to slap him and tell him to get an edge and be more cynical or something. That's why Jimmy Kimmel is growing on me after his move to 11:35.
He giggles too much and is always like "Oh my gosh" at things that aren't a big deal.
[quote]He can't interview for shit,
I think the producers know that. That's why instead of a second segment of the interview, they make the guest play a stupid game instead.
I don't know, but I'll take him over that pig Jimmy Kimmel. Can't stand that smug smile and squinted eyes.
But Jimmy Kimmel is much funnier. Fallon's show is comforting but lame.
Quite frankly I don't think Kimmel or Fallon are great Late Night hosts. And Conan O'Brian looks like something that escaped from a Beavis and Butthead episode.
Hi is cute and happy and his anus smells like fabric softener

Not to me. But I guess if you're into snarky, smug, smart-ass type "comedy", then one might think so.
Fallon fan here. Jimmy can do anything and everything.Yes, he is lousy at the interview unless he knows the guest then he can be brilliant.
He is also lousy at stand up. But, he can sing and dance and act and get guests to do anything.
He's handsome as hell. There's never been a talk show host close to his handsomeness.
Isn't Fallon gay? He bearded up when he got the NBC late night job, marrying an (older) friend of Drew Barrymore's.
I love Jimmy Fallon. I agree with r11 about his versatility, and I love that he does unusual things with his show sometimes, like when he spotlighted the new Exile on Main Street rerelease, which included showing the entire documentary and having guests perform songs from the album all week.
How could he have shown the entire documentary on his show? Was it only 5 minutes long?
If I remember correctly, it was an hour long and was done over two nights.
His show is only 43 minutes long. No way Jimmy gave 30 minutes to a documentary and only had 13 minutes of material.
See link below. Perhaps the documentary was edited somewhat, but it did take up most of the show.
Hollywood moguls see Jimmy and wish they were him.
He looks like a dik-dik!
OP, the answer is simple, because he is a breeder and youre not.
I like both Jimmys.
Fallon is a sweetheart and he cant help that he is so nice.
Kimmel has a condescending attitude towards his guests, but I love it and find it funny. He is like the straight version of a bitchy gay man. I also love the sketches his show does, they are genuinely funny.
I'm with R22, I like them both. Can't wait for Fallon to take over for Leno.
Meanwhile, Conan O'Brien has faded into oblivion with his low-rated TBS show that nobody watches or talks about. So much for the power of "Team Coco."

Jimmy Kimmel is he best host on late night. He's also the nicest person in showbiz.
Jimmy can't even finish a sentence. He acts like he has autism. He stumbles over his words. Chelsea Handler is funnier, and that's saying something. He's also not attractive. Elders are blind.

You're right. Kimmel's sketches are genuinely funny while Fallon's are done to basically just past time. One time they had audience members recite an unfunny play he wrote about getting a traffic ticket. WTF? Other times he has people kick pinatas or take cell phone pics of a screen to see what they win. If I wanted to watch stupid games, I would watch Price Is Right.
Team Coco lives in the hearts of the loving, the gentle, and the just.
Fallon's are done to basically just past time.
He has a cool-ass band
I can't stop watching David Letterman or he will die!

You feel like you want to slap him, tell him to sit down, and not talk again until after he counts to 50.
Can you imagine how he must have driven his teachers up the wall when he was in grade school.
Does anyone under 35 actually watch late night shows anymore?
One of the most pathetic, patronizing shows on late night.
Almost every sketch/bit/lame attempt at humor revolves around social media. Every other word is "Twitter! Facebook! Instagram! YouTube!" It's like a pathetic marketing committee comprised of know-nothing's that observe hipsters like they're on safari determined that a social media mention has to take place every 90 seconds to retain the dwindling, splintered late-night audience. The Macbook sitting prop-like on the desk is groan worthy.
He's painfully unfunny. He pings so loud one has to turn the volume down. Never met a celebrity he didn't nearly fellate. "The Tonight Sow," the definition of patronizing pablum, must have zero relevance for this star humper to get the gig.
NBC is an embarrassment in general, but this toad's rise is a joke. I can't believe the target demo they crave would actually fall for this craven crap.
Jimmy Kimmel is funnier? LOL, how? Being boring, tepid and predictably unoriginal is all Jimmy Kimmel has. At least Jimmy Fallon has great ideas like the classroom rendition of "Blurred Lines" with Robin Thicke.

Fallon is catering to the Milliniels. I'm only 35 and I feel like I'm too old to watch this.
Fallon seems manic during those game segments....I fear he will crash someday.
They have the game segments to fill time because he can't sustain a long interview. He asks 2 questions and then asks them to play a game. It's to hide the fact that he can't interview for shit. And he giggles too much.
