Jimmy Fallon has been one of my faves since his SNL years when he rarely made it through a skit without cracking up. I was sad that his movie career didn’t take off, but he’s been killing it on late night shows and now is taking The Tonight Show to a new place.
The nature of how we consume content these days is perfect for millions of us who are never going to stay up watching a talk show until midnight. Fallon and his crew have been crushing it with their YouTube channel, not only presenting clips and skits in bite-sized portions but also finding creative ways to engage audience and guests.
The days of everyone walking out and sitting down for a chat are fading. We’re now seeing celebrities chatting in the green room, playing random games, competing in lip sync-offs, and reprising legendary roles.
Which is why this just happened when Kevin Bacon came on the show.

Oh yeah, they also did an interview after.
Do you agree with Fallon that this is the best entrance in the history of The Tonight Show? Share it with your 80s friends!
