    lOL!!! That was great. That Williams guy needs to leave the news and become a comedic actor. He’s naturally hilarious.

    I always love when they “slow jam the news.” Probably the only Jimmy Fallon bit I’ll watch. I don’t think his shows that funny.

    This was very creative and entertaining ;o)

    Well, first I had to look up slow-jam to even know what it was all about, then I watched it, then I went back and listened to Kanye West slow-jam something, then I watched it again.

    My vote? It was pretty good. It was interesting to me the way Brian Williams kept his poker face all through that thing. Loved the black singer (forgive me, don’t know who he was, I’m just not up on these things) and that was the first time I’d heard Jimmy Fallon speaking. What a sultry voice.

    Didn’t Fallon just say something to the effect that the President disappointed him? Forget what it was the President did that disappointed Fallon. People are always saying that Obama disappointed them as if we should hang our heads in shame that they were disappointed.

      I think you’re thinking of Matt Dillon who was “disappointed” in the President.

        Oh dont worry Joan, not alot of people know that Jimmy Fallon’s band are THE ROOTS (only reason I watch the show 😀 ). The Roots are an amazing hip hop band (one of the few that plays intruments).
        Cheers,

    I love this bit. Jimmy Fallon has a lot of entertaining segments on his show, and I think he’s talented and funny. By the way, it was Matt Damon who was “disappointed” in Obama, for whatever reason—not perfect in his mind, I guess—-and not Fallon.
    I also like Brian Will.I.Ams—-because he also has a great sense of humor and doesn’t take himself as seriously as many of the others in the news biz.
    Slow jammin the news—-Yes! Do it some more.

    That was excellent comedy. Don’t stay up to watch this show…couple times I’ve seen it, was a snoozer. Good thing for him to have added this.

    “Don’t stay up to watch this show…”

    I meant, “I” don’t stay up to watch. Not a directive to anyone else 😀

    Can you imagine David Gregory, Chuckie Todd or Ed Henry playing the role that Brian Williams did in this slow jam skit?
