And in Other News … OBAMADONNA!

Jimmy Fallon and President Barack Obama "slow jams the news" on The Tonight Show.

If you know me at all you know that I’m a fan of Jimmy Fallon, the host of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Since he took over @FallonTonight (as the show is known on Twitter) in February 2014, the show’s been the one to beat in late night TV wars.

Within the first month of Fallon’s reign, I scored tickets to see Episode 29 (with guests Russell Crowe and the late Joan Rivers) thanks to one of my stagehand-friends from the Radio City Christmas Hall Christmas Spectacular. Seeing the show in person was a thrill, especially one of the early episodes.
