According to Quest Love, he was fired by Lorne Michaels after making disparaging comments about Tina Fey on Watch What Happens: Live (2009). Thompson felt that Fey, a fellow Philadelphian, ignored The Roots during her appearances. Fallon begged Michaels to rehire him. Thompson and Fey later reconciled on the show by eating a "hoagie of friendship" together. See more »
this show really isn't that bad. honestly, when i found out that Leno would be"moving", Conan would take over the tonight show, i wasn't too happy. i only felt worse when i found out that Fallon would take over Late Night! However, i did give the show a try. while his first show, last night, wasn't anywhere near great, it was definitely acceptable for a pilot. however, when tuning in to his second show, things seemed drastically different-he was calmer more creative, collected, and actually fairly funny! trust me, i am not a big fan of Fallon, or the roots. however, the show is drastically improving, and while i still prefer Craig, Conan, letterman, and Leno over him, he is still pretty impressive for a newcomer. and trust me, i know he did the weekend update. KEYWORD:END!! that means he had a full week to get prepared, and not half a day!!! so, give the guy a break, a chance, and watch him for a while(not for years, which is how long it took Conan to reach his potential), and then judge him. it will definitely be very good after some time, but for now, it is definitely acceptable. 6.8/10
