When word got out that Conan was going to be taking over for Jay Leno, I was incredibly excited. I am a huge O'Brien fan! When word got out that Jimmy Fallon was taking over for Conan on Late Night, I was less than thrilled. When it was announced that the Roots (one of my favorite musical artists) would be holding it down as house band for Fallon, I figured I 'd give the show a shot.
Well, three months later I find myself trying to find excuses to give the show a 10th, 11th, and 12th shot at glory. Fallon esta no bueno as a host...but I do find myself watching next-day clips of the Roots back artists such as Paul Simon, the Lonely Island, and Public Enemy...I highly recommend checking these out.
While I am not a huge fan of Fallon as host, I do appreciate his efforts to reunite the cast of Saved By the Bell for the 20th anniversary of the show. Last night Mark-Paul Gosselaar showed up in character as Zack Morris. The references to story arcs, characters, and the infamous "time out" were priceless. If you were a Saved By the Bell fan...as I was...you have to watch this!
