I like Craig's cold openings -- this being my favorite.

A word of advice, Jimmy. Don't unpack.
I agree, I think Jay still has many years left to perform. I'm not ready for Jay to leave The Tonight Show, not just yet.

Re: NBC: Jimmy Fallon to replace Jay Leno in 2014

So, word is starting to leak out that NBC may be looking at a total late night block refresh with this move. With Jimmy moving up to the tonight show, Seth Meyers taking over late night, and...


Alec Baldwin taking over the 1:35 time slot from Carson Daley. All three show slots being executive produced by Lorne Michaels.

There is no way a person of Alec Baldwin's caliber would sign up for 1:35am.

Actually tighr it might make perfect sense. Half hour-ish show like Last Call, can film mulitple episodes at the time, 1/4 of the work for full time pay

Didn't Baldwin just spend a ton of time doing a half-hour podcast for WNYC? A half-hour talk show makes perfect sense for Baldwin, especially given how close he is with Lorne Michaels.

Re: NBC: Jimmy Fallon to replace Jay Leno in 2014

I thought the impetus for firing Leno was to attract younger viewers to NBC. So they're going to bring in a fifty-five year old guy for a show that runs even later?

I'm a fan of Baldwin but this seems like an odd decision in that context.

Re: NBC: Jimmy Fallon to replace Jay Leno in 2014

It's not the one half hour format that is weird to me, it is the timeslot -- 1:35 am. That doesn't seem right for an 'Alec Baldwin', as others have said.

NBC certainly could do worse than having Lorne Michels, a guy who has found a way to get an audience on Saturday nights (of all places) for the last 35 years or so, making their late night decisions.

People are thinking that the show will actually be his podcast, which has developed a following. The late hour will allow for more content freedom, and the show would all Baldwin the freedom to take other projects like movies or guest shots on other tv shows...

And remember that after the end of 30 rock, NBC signed Baldwin to a two year "overall development" contract, paying him to basically not work, and that it was Lorne who pushed for it. The thinking was that it was to retain him while Leno's contract ran out, and they executed the "late night shift".

And they are going to get the younger viewers. But perhaps they're not quite ready to let go of Leno's demographics, hence Baldwin. You're right though that the timeslot is odd for it.

I don't see how they'd get Leno's demographics at 1:30 regardless of who they hire
