From the Partridge Pub to Late Night

jimmy fallonJimmy Fallon takes over as host of Late Night tonight on NBC. (He's replacing Conan who's replacing Leno.)

The St. Rose dropout (15 credits short of a computer science degree) and former Metroland receptionist told Paul Caiano on WNYT recently that he misses Albany -- the Patridge Pub, in particular (it has a different name now).

By the way: Late Night with Jimmy Fallon is being touted as "a talk show for the Twitter era."

Well, if this "talk show for the twitter era" is any good, I'm sure I'll catch it on youtube.

@Pantaloons YouTube is so 2008. The cool kids will catch it on Hulu.

Maybe it's just me, but Jimmy gets me all Twitterpated.

@Slacker, are you implying that I'm somehow not cool? Because the golden fanny pack my grandma bought me clearly demonstrates otherwise.

@Abby, he is cute. But, you can't get by on looks alone (heh, don't I know it! Did I mention my new fanny pack?).

Great to see a local (from Saugerties, right?) make it big (and this is pretty big), but does anyone actually think he's funny?

Let's hope he is more funny and less wasted than he was at the Spitzer Inaugural Festivities. Perhaps that was truly the beginning of the end of that administration.

@Pantaloons No way! You have a golden fanny pack too!?!? We should totally go hang out at Crossgates together!
