Louis C.K.: Jimmy Fallon Has “Totally Changed” The Feeling Of Late Night
In an interview with Variety, the comedian gives his thoughts on the shifting landscape.
“Whether it’s Conan or Letterman or Kimmel, a lot of it is practical,” he explains. “It takes about 100 people to produce a show, and you have guests who you pay nothing and the same with your music guests, and you just pump them out and make a profit.”
Fallon falls into the formula — for the most part.
“What’s interesting about all the changes taking place is that even though Jimmy Fallon is the most different, he’s still the guy with the skyline, the desk and the band,” says C.K.
But he adds that Fallon has been a huge success since taking over “The Tonight Show” because “his voice is so smart and he’s such a sweet guy, and he is the guy who has totally changed the tempo and the feeling of late night.”
Do you agree with his assessment?
