Fallon, Coming Soon! His First Week Will Include….

| Filed under: TV NewsConan O'BrienJimmy Fallon


Jimmy Fallon is gearing up to prepare for the debut of his very own talk show next month.

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon set to premiere on March 2nd, and set to join Fallon on day 1 will be Robert De Niro. The actor will also be joined by Van Morrison, who'll be performing.

Producer Michael Shoemaker said "I think in the case of Robert De Niro, he had a lot of [talk show] experience and he knows Jimmy well. Jimmy has done skits with De Niro on 'Saturday Night Live' and I think [De Niro] knows Jimmy will take care of him."

What does De Niro even have to promote right now?

As for his guests the rest of the week, those will include former coworker Tina Fey, Jon Bon Jovi, Cameron Diaz, Billy Crudup, Serena Williams, Ludacris, Donald Trump, Drew Barrymore, and Mario Batali.

Unfrotunately, the only one we're interested in watching is Tina Fey.

Shoemaker adds, "These [guests] aren't going to be someone Jimmy has never met," Shoemaker says. "It really wasn't for a 'comfort level' thing - he just happens to know amazing people."

As for the show, Fallon's in-house band will be The Roots, and the announcer will be SNL alum Steve Higgins.

We're kinda thinking Jimmy will bomb. What do U think?

    Camron Diaz? ugh

  11. 11

    he sucks big time. he's not funny and he looks like a complete douchebag with the trimmings and all! fart on him

  12. 12

    it will be funny for like the first 2 weeks then it will be boring. he really isn't that funny. he talks in that same voice and does that same shtick over and over. it'll get old real fast…

    Re: LizardKinG – How about Magic Johnson's mess!

    I really hope he does well I like him a lot !

  15. 15

    I hope he does good. He seems nervous.. Either way, wishing Jimmy lots of success…

  16. 16

    I can't wait — it'll be more entertaining than here anyway

    Re: harrybalsacRe: LizardKinG – If you've seen one of those boring as fuck late night ass kissing fests, you've definitely seen them all. . . .

    I kind of feel bad for him lol

    Take out jimmy. Bring in Joan Rivers nbc. =)

  21. 21

    he's going to be fantastic! finally someone younger and cool people staying up late can relate to. letterman is an icon, but jimmy will be hot and fresh and totally hysterical. his webisodes have been fantastic and everything about the new show will KICK ASS

  22. 22

    i will watch solely watch because of THE ROOTS!

  23. 23

    van morrison ftw

  24. 24

    He is smart and funny + good appearances (super excited for Tina Fey!!!). I think this show will be interesting. All he needs now is to invite R-pattz on the show! What media giant is producing this? and what time?

  25. 25

    Nice attitude Perez………..people thought Conan would bomb too….now everyone kisses his ass. Give the guy a chance

  26. 26

    I agree. I don't think he is talk show host material. Too spaced out. I think he's better suited to sketch comedy. He probably should be making movies.

  27. 27

    He just isn't very talented. When he was on SNL, he always found himself a lot funnier than the audience did.

  28. 28

    loves the Roots

  29. 29

    I hope he kicks butt.

  30. 30

    He'll bomb cuz he's awkward. Plus, who wants to see someone interview their friends? The only good thing going for that show is The Roots.

  31. 31

    If those are the best guests he can get in his first week he is doomed. Those losers are C-listers at best. Almost bad enough to justify Perez making the cut.

  32. 32

    Re: lemonbird – I agree. He should be on Judd Apatow's jock right now!

  33. 33

    why the hell are the Roots signed up as an in-house band? Please tell me we're not talking about the Roots with ?uest Love

  34. 34

    I sadly agree with you Perez.

  35. 35

    I got a bad feeling about it yes, but if you remember Conan was hopeless the first year or two… Hopefully the peacock will give Jimmy the time to get his feet under him…

  36. 36

    I think he will do GREAT! You leave him alone! :(

  37. 37

    jimmy fallon is cool.. give him a chance

  38. kuku says – reply to this


    he is so hott but i can't stand him… unless he is dressed like barry big.. i'm just going to watch him on MUTE! xo

    I think Jimmy Fallon will be great! He is a good entertainer! When interviewing The Lonely Island was hilarious! lol i miss him on SNL though! He should probably be careful not to just burst out into laughter when interviewing..

  40. 40

    Of aaaaaaallll the talented comics out there, they let Jimmy Fallon host a talk show? Dumb!

  41. 41

    sounds awesome! the roots, jimmy fallon, all those celebs… sounds good.

  42. 42

    If it's anything like Weekend Update, I'll be happy. Jimmy Fallon is great.

  43. 43

    He'll probably suck at first, but he'll get the hang of it. Stephen colbert was the absolute worse when he first started his show, now he rocks my world!

  44. 44

    He is not gonna rule this show the way Conan did. Conan O'Brien is sooo much funnier and it is his show. Jimmy isn't that fun really. He might bomb.

  45. 45

    I love Jimmy, I think he has what it takes to be a good host. I don't watch any late shows but I'll either record or tune in to see how he does.

  46. 46

    The roots are a hot band, they back up so many artists I expect that to be the best part of the show, but hey..Letterman started in standup, Conan was a writer for SNL, so a Standup comic from SNL should do well

  47. 47

    He's almost 35. This is his last option. The goofy boyish thing only makes money for so long. That's why SNL time ended. He can't act, so movies aren't an option. Not sure if talk show is the best fit for him. I think a sitcom similar to Seinfeld might have been better. He could write and not really have to act. Since, it's not live he wouldn't break into a giggle attack.

    This show will not have a long life…although it is always nice to see Billy Crudup and his legendary junk!

  49. 49

    I hope not…I kinda love J.Fal. I'm gonna watch, fo shiz.

  50. 50

    I actually think this will be more up his alley. Anything to keep hime from makeing more movies….
