Jimmy Fallon taking the reins of The Tonight Show marks another tectonic shift in the world of late night TV, though, as TV critic Ken Tucker notes, the legacy of the genre means way more to its hosts than its audience. And there are more hosts than ever to choose from: Stewart, Colbert, Letterman, O'Brien, Fallon, Kimmel, Ferguson, Handler, Myers, Hall, Maher, and more.
Is late-night talk TV part of your life?
You bet. I have my favorite(s), and getting their take on things is how I tune in, wind down, and prepare to fade out. Carson, Paar, and Allen would be proud the art form is thriving.
Yes, but. I don't have a steady. I bounce, depending on the guests and how busy I am. That thing where everybody saw it on Carson last night? Long gone.
Not at all. I may catch some clips on YouTube, blogs, websites, or other shows, but these programs aren't really on my content agenda. Sorry, legendary art form!
