One of the best things about late night on the Glowing Tube is this man named Jimmy Fallon, who recently took over the Tonight Show from Captain Lantern Jaw (hey, the ’70s called, and they want their hair back, then the ’50s called, asking for their jokes back).

In all seriousness about men paid millions to be silly on the teevee, it did feel like Jay Leno was a cartoon from the ’50s, telling jokes that were stale when my grandfather heard them. Nice guy and all. Just boring.

Jimmy the Fallon, on the other hand, is an innovation machine.

Slow-jamming the news was one thing. Now he’s got BriWi (Brian Williams) doing classic rap songs, and the results keep getting better. Check it out.

  2. Hats off the the digital editing worker bees behind Fallon and the Peacock who put this together. It actually pays respect and tribute to this 80s soft rap classic. Thanks for finding this one.


  3. I love Jimmy Fallon. I love his history of rap bits with Justin Timberlake. I love his lip-synch showdowns with various people. I love his ridiculously awesome games. I love his thank you notes and the way he just seems like a really excellent guy. This is a Tonight Show I actually want to watch.
