Good-bye, Jay: Heeere’s Jimmy

Late Night With Jimmy Fallon - Season 4I don’t care that Jimmy Fallon can sing like Springsteen. Bruce Springsteen. The1980s rock star? Grunts and slurs his words? Yeah, that Bruce Springsteen. I don’t care that Fallon can sing like him.

He will never be a Jay Leno.

I didn’t even buy the whole Kumbaya thing that went on over the months leading up to Leno’s departure from the Tonight Show. Fallon looked so thrilled to see Leno go, he was ready to birth to kittens.

Well, the seminal late night time slot now belongs to him and he’ll probably be bringing his stupid a$$ band with him. We are now solidly into the Saturday Night Live option.

And as Variety so accurately and succinctly noted, “the franchise just got a little smaller.”

I suspect that there are several reasons NBC decided to go with Fallon even now when Leno’s ratings lead late night. Consider the network’s news and cable programming if you need rationale.

These are people who long ago decided to cater to a fringe liberal and low-information audience, rather than pursue actual journalism. Only lefties and apathetic dummies watch NBC News any more. Brian Williams? Really? Another topic for another day. (Oh, and the transplants aren’t working.)

One reason NBC probably decided on the change is because CBS is on life support with David Letterman. How much longer can he last? He’s 66, arrogant and not very funny. Were it not for muscle memory Dave probably wouldn’t have an audience at all.

So it’s easy to see that the Peacock may have feared losing Fallon to one of the other networks, if they didn’t move soon.

But the standout reason is that Leno is perceived by the Left to lean right, and that’s a no-no anywhere inside of NBC. Watch the Law & Order reruns if you don’t believe it. Or 30 Rock or just about any other show in their programming lineup for the last 10 years, for that matter.

Jay is not to be mistaken for any kind of conservative I know of, but just compare his Sarah Palin jokes to Letterman’s spooky serial stalking that only ended when the comedian had to admit to, er, shall we say sexual issues.

So Leno is not mean or particularly liberal, and Jimmy Fallon is already exhibiting signs of Republican Derangement Syndrome. Reason enough to dump your number one guy for someone who’s more in line with the network’s ratings-destroying left wing ideology.

Not to worry, though, Republicans will probably still watch Fallon.

And rave about how brilliant he was “last night” when he buried yet another of their wounded.

      Don’t be too hard on them. It’s the best a washed up rapper and a comedian who couldn’t draw an audience can do.
