This week, EMPT interviewedÂ SNL starÂ Jimmy Fallon in preparation for his new talk show â€œLate Night with Jimmy Fallon,â€ slated to debut on March 2nd from 12:30-1:30 AM. Whatâ€™s more exciting is that the show will play host to Fallonâ€™s new house band:Â The Roots.
Though Fallon is not a direct â€˜replacementâ€™ forÂ Conan Oâ€™Brien (who took over Jay Lenoâ€™s seat on The Tonight Show) thereâ€™s been quite a stir over the fact that Fallon bumped him into the 11:30 time-slot thus alienating loyal fans.
Nevertheless, these past few months leading up to his debut, Fallon has successfully produced and hosted a video blog (aka: â€œv-logâ€ â€¦sounds dirty, no?) that runs nightly onÂ NBC.com at 12:30 am. In our interview he said the v-log has been a great tool for him because heâ€™s been able toÂ â€œTry out skits and ideas on the website first and then use that information to appeal more to what the fans want.â€
Ironically, this isnâ€™t the first time Fallonâ€™s stepped into the strange world of â€˜vlogging.â€™ Do any of you guys remember the SNL skit â€œJarrettâ€™s Roomâ€ where Jimmy played â€œJarrettâ€“the college bloggerâ€ ? Well, it seems like his â€˜vlog-lifeâ€™ has manifested itself in a whole new lightâ€¦
