Jimmy is just NOT FUNNY. His guests are funny...but he just isn't funny. He stunk on SNL and he really brings down the tonight show. To compare him to Carson or Leno or even mention them in the same breath is impossible.
Harvey Korman used to try not to laugh and goofed his lines on the Carol Burnett show and that made the audience laugh more. Because he was FUNNY.
That's all Jimmy did on SNL and he wasn't!
Watching his nervousness, his cue-card like delivery, trying over and over again to give him a chance to show he is funny, is a waste of time. He simply isn't.
Not that Conan is...but Jimmy makes Conan look like a brilliant comedian.
This is what late night has come to.
And now with Ferguson and Letterman leaving, this could be the demise of most late night tv.
Please choose wisely for the next batch whoever does this.
At least it won't be the same rocket scientists that picked Fallon, thank goodness.
