    Forgot to reply to octavia willilams, “me too, me too!” Also, no one can succeed on only one demo. Ask Jay Leno who plays to only one demo. He is a Vegas veteran and did not grow to meet his challenges on a show that plays to a population larger and more diverse than a Vegas show audience. I have the sense Mr. Leno was never aware that there might be demos different from Vegas that he needed to succeed with. Given his performance over time, it looks like, for Jay Leno, the pinnacle of achievement is the Vegas demo. Given you are doing a Vegas show, you need your audience to be drinking and the Tonight Show audience does not drink during the show and at least some of the home audience does not drink during the show.

    Hey cxg, are you reporting your feelings and behavior? If no, then exactly which “old person” do you know did this because they told you they did this? Or are you sterotyping, based on your personal beliefs? What age is “old”? I am asking because I can see you are the world’s expert. I believe Jimmy Fallon is succeeding because a large population, a diverse population, has seen a lot of his performance over time, we all like him personally separate from his professional achievements, and we want him to succeed professionally. Same as what works in any professional achievement. This time around, there is a smart executive at NBC who said, since the viewers are who matter, let’s get someone viewers like rather than someone the NBC executives like. Again, same as what works in any professional achievement/workplace/industry/family/everywhere in the world – your have power and opportunity based on who likes you and demonstrates it with their support.

    …And all the old people who watched Leno all these years cried themselves to sleep, wondering what the hell happened to their beloved Tonight Show….

    Or they just changed channels.
