The Prince of Late Night

Former SNLer Jimmy Fallon is taking over NBC’s Late Night when funnyman Conan O’Brien vacates the spot, moves west, and takes over The Tonight Show later this year (Fallon will visit O’Brien tonight, btw).

The choice of Fallon has proven controversial, but the budding late-night host says what truly will set him apart from the bunch is his youthful love of all things pop culture.

“My monologues will be more entertainment focused,” he told W magazine. “I really don’t know much about politics and sports.

“I’ve started reading all the papers, but before I did ‘Weekend Update’ [on SNL], I only read USA Today. I liked the colors.”

That just might work.
