A few reactions to Letterman's retirement announcement bring up the idea that he may be stepping down because he never "got" the viral video phenomenon that Fallon and Kimmel have so clearly mastered.

With the March 31 deadline to enroll in health insurance through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (or, to the rest of us, Obamacare) upo...
As birds chirp and bees buzz, what cannot be denied is love, promising love. A smart, sweet and embraceable singing-songwriting duo known as The Sea The Sea convey all those feelings in a what's-old-is-new video that premieres here today.
Music and the careers of musicians need to be tended to like growing crops; you have to pay attention, be patient, keep working on them and help them thrive.
Chances are that you don't know Penny by name. But you may recognize her from a Saturday Night Live appearance with Justin Timberlake. You may have se...
The area's deep-rooted agricultural heritage has meshed with kitchen savvy to make Saugerties a stomping ground for culinary geeks. If that's not enough to entice you, Jimmy Fallon was raised here and locals couldn't be prouder or more pleased to chat about their hometown boy.
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...
If passed, the ban on same-sex marriages could have devastating consequences on upwards of 86 percent of current legal unions, and up to 60 percent of Jewish newlyweds.
The entire winter here in Minnesota is relentless enough that I'd perhaps accept a vacation to Siberia. The severity of our winter blues, however, finds excuse for couch potatoism. With our work ethic abated, my wife and I have fallen to drugging ourselves with television.
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.
