Say what you want about Jimmy Fallon as a talk show host (too "cutesy" is a common criticism), but he’s done more than any other late night rival to leverage new media technology to enhance his show — and not just on Twitter.
According to the show’s official blog, Fallon is inviting fans to watch the show live with him online next week. (This may blow some minds, but most late night talk shows, save for Jimmy Kimmel, are taped.)
Every night next week, while LNwJF is playing on your TV, Jimmy will also be watching along in his office – streaming live! We are partnering with Ustream.tv to bring you a totally interactive fun party time. You’ll be able to chat with Jimmy while he comments on the show as it airs. He’ll be joined by Late Night staffers and special guests! The stream will be live from 12:30 AM EST until 1:35 AM EST Monday, May 24th through Friday, May 28th, right here on our site and will be repeated for additional time zones. Did you ever think you’d get a chance to watch the show with Jimmy?
