Faculty: Jimmy Fallon

-Today's New York Times features an article on Jimmy Fallon, who recently took over for Conan on Late Night. The article details the show's attempts to be more web-conscious that its competitors, with numerous Webisodes and incessant references to sites like Twitter and Facebook. The above sketch about "bromance novels" is mentioned in the article.
-Even though the NYT piece is a bit rough on Fallon, I have been pleasantly surprised by his first episodes. The country let out a collective groan when Fallon was announced as Conan's successor, but some solid skits, a relaxed screen presence, and The Roots have made the show pretty entertaining.
