Jimmy Fallon is using what he learned in college

The new version of The Tonight Show -- now hosted with Jimmy Fallon, now in New York City -- debuted last night. And as you know, Fallon is a Saint Rose grad (even if it did take him a few extra years).

From a NY Mag listicle about Fallon's new job:

He plans on using "everything I've learned in my whole life" to get the show to work, including his first college major. "If there's a computer-programming sketch, I will somehow make that happen," he says. (He switched to Communications, and dropped out the College of Saint Rose in Albany a semester shy of graduating, but got an honorary degree in 2009.)

Maybe computer science really is the major for getting a job.

The Scoop

For a decade All Over Albany was a place for interested and interesting people in New York's Capital Region. It was kind of like having a smart, savvy friend who could help you find out what's up. AOA stopped publishing at the end of 2018.
