Serious Questions

Is Jimmy Fallon Cute? Or Rabidly Obnoxious?

SPL77683_018

Or both? No, serious question. On Saturday Night Live, he was just that goofy nerdy guy with the half-decent smile. But now that he’s all grown up with his own television show to himself and a wardrobe budget that includes better tailored and flashier suits, Mr. Fallon is suddenly … reasonably attractive. But then he opens his mouth to deliver one-liners during the monologue, and his hot factor shrivels up.

    I go with Rabidly Obnoxious. Just like almost everyone from SNL (Still Not Laughing).

  • Dabq

    Just lame would fit him, and, how tacky and uncouth to have a photograph taken with a hunk of gum showing.

  • Sam

    Totally disagree. On SNL he was adorable. Now that he’s been “Leno-ed” he looks…meh. Kinda reminds me of Jeremy Piven’s smarmy agent character on Entourage (or his real life equivalents).

  • ousslander

    Rabidly obnoxious. was he ever funny?

  • Cam

    Obnoxious. And Jimmy, you have your own show now…time to learn what a comb is.

  • oneway

    I had a crush on him in his SNL days, and he’s still plenty cute. But, oh boy, his monologue delivery is downright painful. How on earth did he get this job?!

  • Topher

    I’m with Oneway. I do enjoy his show because he isn’t afraid to step away from the regular late night fodder, but he needs to learn a little something about timing and not laughing at your own jokes. It was endearing once a week on SNL, but not five days a week. All in all, he is adorkable.

  • rogue dandelion

    he is super cute we he shuts his mouth and doesn’t obviously steal conan’s mannerisms. He is the most unfunny host in my memory.

  • GranDiva

    OBNOXIOUS. Toxically OBNOXIOUS. Thorougly OBNOXIOUS. Fatally OBNOXIOUS. Feloniously OBNOXIOUS. So OBNOXIOUS that it causes the bowels to spontaneously loosen.

  • Vinman

    @Topher: My new word for the day is …….. adorkable!

  • Steve

    Fallon is nothing more than Dane Cook 2.0 (the worst possible insult).

    The only funny thing is watching the NBC PR team trying to make Fallon out to be the king of the college crowd and “new media” market.
    The guy has zero talent.

  • dgz

    i just wonder why he seems determined to follow the traditional talk-show format so closely. he should change it up to suit his brand of funny.

    and he really needs to take a class on how to make eye contact. so shifty-looking!

  • John

    he has a show now? whats in his nose in that photo? a bean?

  • DCDude

    For some reason I have never liked Jimmy Fallon. I’ve never thought he was very funny, even on SNL. I watched one episode of his talk show. I didn’t enjoy, although he could grow as a host if he applied himself. I just never understood why he got branded “JIMMY FALLON: COMIC”. He could be an actor. But I just don’t think he’s funny enough or has a point-of-view to be a comic.

  • Geoff

    I always kinda liked him…even though on SNL he seemed unable to ever go a whole sketch without flubbing his lines…I just don’t think he or his new show are funny…or even fun. Maybe he’ll mellow out and find his own shtick.

  • Katelyn

    He used to be cute, but only in 45-second doses. Now he’s not quite obnoxious, just very. Very. Unfunny.

  • afrolito

    Totally obnoxious, and unfunny….as always.

    Is that a booger stuck in his nose? Eww

  • vernonvanderbilt

    @afrolito: I think it’s a leprechaun.

  • michael

    I always sorta thought of him as a guy that was meant to be cute but something went just slightly off enough to mess it up. Kind of like buying “seconds”, you know a crooked seam, or the plate is just missed being perfectly round.

  • stevenelliot

    he needs to pick his nose in a mirror be4 having fotos taken. Isnt that what the personal assist is supposed to do? Check for boogers and such>?

  • stevenelliot

    PS Id shag him immediately. He’s very hot

  • Ryan

    He was okay — okay — on SNL (and that probably had more to do with Tina Fey than himself)… but he absolutely SUCKS as a host of the late night show. Totally FUBAR. There’s no fixing that shit.

    I don’t even know if it’s worth it. How many hours of late night talk show can NBC have? Now that Jay Leno’s going to have the 10pm slot every night, what’s the freaking point of the Late Night show? Conan was the only night show talky guy worth listening to (love the Daily Show, but I find that I just watch the clips now… not a tv person really, but Conan was a freaking fixture in my life during college).

  • Billy

    Jimmy Fallon IS a stud… tall, dark, and extremely hot. His smile is awesome, and there is something very homoerotic about his college fratboy style of humor; but in terms of being a late night host, he’s a complete joke. His looks and charm are the only factors that keep his show on the air.

  • Lo

    sorry but he is freaking hot. like he’s just so darn adorable and cute.
    btw he is like hilarious and silly, he’s got it all [;

  • sarah

    I think he is so cute. He is one of the most talented comedians. Absolutely adorable!

    A jerk, desperately needing to feel liked by everyone and everything, no special talent or charisma, just a working stiff as the fish out of water. He belongs working as a customer service rep. for a telemarketing firm. That is a job probably of greater need and mental level better suited for tempering his pathetic need to gatner everyone and everything’s attention…”Hey, I’m Jimmy Fallon and I’m the greatest, nicest guy you’ll ever meet…believe it, please! I really need to know that that is how you see me…well? Oh please, believe it! I am the nicest guy in the world and I can prove it…I, Jimmy Fallon can proves this fact. No, really I can…I’M JIMMY FALLON…spelled F-A-L-L-O-N…that’s two “n”s…yes. No, not fall on, buy Fallon. Uh…I suppose it’s kinda, well, yeah…Fallon as in Phallus, but…well hey, if you think I good looking…but remember…I’M a GREAT guy…really. Really? What are you saying? I’m the great and one and only Jimmy Fallon. Listen,listen…I am Jimmy, that’s J – I – M – M – Y…Jimmy Fallon…You what? You don’t know who I am? You’re kidding?! I’m the nicest guy on TV anywhere in the world. So, what the hell is wrong with you, have you been stuck on an island for 25 years??? JIMMY FALLON!!! READ MY LIPS, no more Bachmann. Oh shit, then I can’t help you. Hey, which one of you crew jerk-offs set me up to speak with that stupid old hag? I’m firing half of you tomorrow, so who will be laughing then…and then who is the nice guy?!?!?
