Late Night: Zack Attack with the Roots

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!


  1. That was pretty amazing. ?Love playing with frigging Zack Morris.

    They should change the name of the show to "Guests Steal Another Show from Jimmy Fallon."
