  1. Fallon’s incessant giggling and forced frivolity are off-putting in the extreme. He’s an insufferable attention hog. I swear, Pavarotti could return from the dead to sing Nessun Dorma on his show and he would run on stage to make it a duet. Everything has to be about him. I was looking forward to a reboot of an excellent word game show but I don’t think I can stomach his nonstop nonsense. Keke Palmer does her best but someone needs to tell the Executive Producer (Jimmy Fallon, of course) to take it down several notches. He’s ruining it.

  2. Twitter says flop.

    Nielsen says “Shut up, Twitter.”


  3. I don’t know why everyone is surprised about Jimmy Fallon’s large size ego. He has fantastic guests on his show and if they are singers, he sings with them – if they are dancers he dances with them. He just can’t stand for anyone else to get any attention. Haven’t watched him for years as I get so frustrated when a guest I like is on and he can’t shut up long enough to enjoy the guest.

  4. Wow! I could not disagree more! Password was so fun to watch! Keke is great and Jimmy is just a big kid enjoying himself! The contestants were funny and it looked like everyone was having fun! I love a good game show and this does not disappoint!
