Surveying the reconfigured talk show landscape, I became annoyed that everybody gets to do a monologue but me. After all, I have hilarious thoughts as...
Mid-April and mid-July and mid-September. That's when we will all have other things to do and when life can get in the way of normal viewing patterns and things we once thought important. That's when Fallon's ability to draw an audience will be truly tested.
Is the transition from Jay Leno to Jimmy Fallon news simply because it's out with the old and in with new? Hardly. The long-time comedian and social media genius spent the past four years earning late night cred on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on NBC.
Life is getting more and not less complicated and for one good reason: there are way too many choices in our everyday entertainment lives.
As I watched Jay Leno say goodbye on his final Tonight Show, I started thinking about all of my experiences with Jay, the stars on his show, the various wild animals roaming the halls and his incredible staff.
Last night, when he didn't have to do so, he demonstrated which side he is on.
It's well known that late night TV talk shows are a male-dominated field. As Jay Leno hands over The Tonight Show to Jimmy Fallon, I caught up with Beth Einhorn, who was the only female writer on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno for three years.

Religious communities calling a new pastor, rabbi or imam do not get the same public attention focused on the choice of the next king of late-night TV. But saying goodbye to a longtime leader and deciding on a new spiritual CEO pose special challenges for congregations.
What's next for Leno? Will he just do stand-up appearances and work on his cars? Not a chance. I worked with him at The Tonight Show for 18 years. He has the mentality of a boxer. No boxer would ever walk out of the ring in the middle of a fight in which he was pulverizing his opponent.
After 22 years of hosting the "Tonight Show," Jay Leno is -- again -- stepping aside to make room for some younger blood. As he told viewers and apparently every entertainer who ever asked him, in show business you need to stockpile your bunker with sandbags of cash in anticipation of the day when they tell you it's all over.
Corruption is a byproduct of a person in power, either through money, by way of election, or by force, who is arrogant instead of grateful. In the words of Elliot Spitzer, "hubris is terminal."
The healthcare train has left the station, albeit with some struggles. And there will be other hurdles ahead for the law. But, as more Americans see the options that are available to them, they will understand the true significance of Obamacare. And then they will be "addicted to the sugar!"
I plead guilty to an abashed fondness for the Jackass movies, which revealed new depth to the kind of childishness hinted at by the Jackass TV show.
With a boycott of the Olympics in Sochi -- an event Russians are immensely proud of -- the blame would fall on the liberals. Putin gets what he wants -- a further discrediting of those who are against him. Does that mean that the West should be silent on Putin's excesses?
Do you really expect Russian leaders to take your rhetoric seriously? I think not, Mr. President.
