Not Hoping to Fail

jfallon-200x150I found myself watching debut week of Jimmy Fallon's late night show.  Yeah, it's a work in progress.  What isn't?   Yes, I've seen all the criticism..  "he's awkward...  not funny..  no direction..."  Not only was I nervous for him, but I found myself rooting for him.  Why?  Because he doesn't come across as one of those glib, "I'm-hipper-than-the-room" kind of guys...  His moments with Tina Fey and Amanda Peet were terrific.  I know it's early, but I'm hoping his everyman quality wears well.    No, he's not the second coming of Johnny Carson... but at least he's not Howie Mandel....
