    Default Jimmy Fallon is a Douche?

    So, I was watching a recent episode of The Tonight Show in which Fallon hosted Vin Diesel.
    Fallon started out asking Diesel about his time playing D&D and WoW. The whole thing has a very condescending tone and ended with Fallon telling Diesel the he "couldn't believe he was successful."

    Diesel sounded slightly annoyed but answered the questions and finished the interview.

    I now dislike Jimmy Fallon. Did anyone else see it and pick up on this?

    That's not cool. I guess he might be appealing to the mainstream which may still view these things as horribly nerdy and in turn, something to be ashamed of, but Vin Diesel's been known to be very proud of his geek history.

    All those late-night talk show hosts have a completely undeserved self entitled attitude. They're all awful. Its a stretch to consider any of them comedians except maybe Colbert but when I'm feeling political I just drink a 40 and listen to some Against Me!

    i like letterman cause he's always sort of casual and disinterested. he'll get the biggest celebrity in the world and just talk to them about their shoes for ten minutes and forget the name of the movie they're starring in. people think he's a douche because of that, but i love it. he doesn't worship the celebrities on his show, he just treats them like regular people.

    I don't watch Fallon much, but when I do he usually strikes me as a nice guy. But I haven't seen the clip you're referring to.

    Conan is always a douche, especially when gaming is involved, but that's what makes him funny. Especially in his Clueless Gamer series.

    Here's the clip. OP is blowing it out of proportion.
