Worst ever? Not even close. Maybe you are too young to remember when Chevy Chase tried this shit.

Oh, yeah--that was bad... lol

I haven't turned on tv in years. I don't know if we can get him locally but I do know this was a very insincere, fake and scripted advertisement.

Other clips I've seen seem a bit forced sometimes. Otherwise I find him pretty likeable. But my idea of a really good host is Craig Ferguson.

Fallon is a kiss up (Everything is AMAZING) and is only good in skits. Fallon does terrible interviews. Although, Arsenio Hall was the WORST interviewer ever. Half the time he asked a guest a question that the guest already answered in the same interview about 1 min earlier. It was like Arsenio Hall wasn't paying attention to his own interview.

Ellen is just burned out. She wanted to go off the air, but was trying to stay on the air for a positive view point for LGBTQ while Prez Cheeto was in office. To be an alternative to the hate speech out there.

99.9% of everything I say is strictly for my own entertainment

I have to agree that there is SOMETHING not right with Fallon... it's like he's an introvert trying his best to be an extrovert for big bucks.

shrug

I wouldn't say that he's WORST EVER (I mean, he is entertaining) but yeah, I can't really get through his show.

Someone told me that he is a functional alcoholic (or something like that)... makes sense if he is.

I did a thread on this very topic about two years ago. He is absolutely dreadful! Unprofessional and awkward as hell. He'll ask a guest a question and then start talking over them. He nervously laughs everything, like it's hysterical. He seems nervous all the time. Wtf?

Colbert used to SO MUCH BETTER on HBO. Now that he's on CBS he filters himself out a lot. Made me realize how powerful the network& the exec.producers of the show really are. Colbert on CBS is a watered down Colbert.

And regarding my username...girlsandboys was taken so razz



LOL on the user name.

Colbert was never on HBO. Were you thinking of "The Colbert Report" on Comedy Central? Keep in mind, that was just a character Colbert was playing. It wasn't real.

But sure, it's watered down on CBS. Much bigger audience, and different format. Howver, he kind of "unwatered" it when Trump became president and his true Trumpiness started showing itself. Colbert went after him hard - and still does - and the rise in his ratings are because of that.

Ah yes, Comedy Central, thanks.

I supposed I enjoy the character he played more than Colbert himself. I don't think he's going hard at him at all. But then again, I never watch his full monologue, (I don't find him that compelling) rather just bits here and there on social media. And at the end of the day, 'I'm a comedian and you can't take anything I say seriously' - is literally their legal defense when they get involved with lawsuits. Even if he were going hard at Trump I wonder if that really does much more than SNL skits.

Very likeable guy, the monologues meh. But he does ask some thought provoking questions when he does interviews...there I give him that. lol
