The Foundations of Fallon
Bookmark and Share
This year we have seen the retirement of long time late night talk show hosts, Jay Leno and David Letterman. They were replaced by Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert. Meanwhile, Jimmy Kimmel, James Carden, Seth Meyers, and Conan O'Brien all are alive and well on late night TV. This week, we take a look at the grandfather of late night talk shows, The Tonight Show. We'll explore why this show has been the number one late night show since Steve Allen first hosted it in 1954. We'll also look at how the past 60 years have laid quite a foundation of success for Fallon.
