Jimmy Fallon Taking Over For Conan O'Brien = NBC Goes From Suck To Blow

It may be possible for NBC to find somebody less funny than Jimmy Fallon to host a TV talk show, but Carson Daly already has a job. Really though, Jimmy Fallon? Ick.

Jimmy Fallon appears to be inching closer to Conan O’Brien’s “Late Night” chair.

For months, Fallon has been widely considered the top choice to succeed O’Brien when he steps down next year. On Thursday, published reports said Fallon has signed, or soon will sign, a deal with NBC.
