Meh.

[clearspring_widget title=”Late Night with Jimmy Fallon – First Video Blog (12/8/08)” wid=”4727a250e66f9723″ pid=”493ed99a42f0d57e” width=”384″ height=”283″ domain=”widgets.nbc.com”]

I’ve been trying to ignore this for awhile, but there’s no getting around it now.

On one hand, I empathize. Those cats do hundreds of dates a year, and they’re not getting any younger. But a house band for a “comedian” no one seems to like? Even in the inchoate incarnation we see in the above video, it strikes me as very, very wrong.

Bah.

    I think this is a good look for The Roots. It definitely increases Jimmy’s cool appeal. And it gives the band more mainstream attention.
