Fallon Enters Late Night Fray

David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, … Jimmy Fallon? The pedigree of the Late Night show may be headed for a precipitous drop off, but Fallon tells The New York Times “a lot of people don’t like me because other people told them not to like me.” Fallon takes over on Monday from Conan, who left him a plastic pickle and a handwritten note. The Letterman people sent this pickle to my office in 1993,” O’Brien wrote. “Now I’m passing it on to you. Whenever you leave, which won’t be for a long time, make sure you pass it on to the next sap.” Fallon’s first show will feature Robert De Niro, Justin Timberlake, and Van Morrison.
