Critic Reviews for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Season 5

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (7)

In an extended off-putting bit that's more satisfying considering Jimmy Fallon's typically unrelenting cheerfulness, The Tonight Show celebrates its host's fifth late-night anniversary Monday with a dark Larry Sanders Show-style peek behind the desk.

Mar 29, 2019 | Full Review…

In an era when many late-night programs have ratcheted up their political commentary, "Tonight" has tried to stay true to the ethos that Fallon gave it when he took over from Jay Leno in February of 2014.

Mar 29, 2019 | Full Review…

The "Tonight Show" team didn't shy away from the fact that they're far less interested in tackling the news onslaught that feeds other late night shows.

Mar 29, 2019 | Full Review…

Credit where it's due...

Top Critic

The 44-year-old Saturday Night Live alum deviated from the typical format of the nightly talk show - previously hosted by Jay Leno until Fallon took over on Feb. 17, 2014 - in an unusual scripted episode...

Mar 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Fallon isn't so much letting people down as he is doing the job he was hired to do, so no one should have really expected any incisive commentary from him.

Top Critic

While there was a lot of anger simmering in this fictional day-in-the-life, all involved made it through without a complete, Hank Kingsley-level meltdown.

Mar 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Naturally, the audience loved it, and they treated Sandler to a standing ovation...

Mar 29, 2019 | Full Review…

The whole thing is a brilliant streak of against-type comedy...

Mar 29, 2019 | Full Review…

Good, smart television, and I am guessing that other late-night hosts are kicking themselves for not thinking to do it first.

Mar 29, 2019 | Full Review…

Some seriously funny and very passive aggressive celebrity interviews.

Audience Reviews for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon: Season 5

  • Jun 04, 2020
    Man, I will never ever watch your show again. You are soooo out of touch with reality it isnt even funny. It sucks because I used to look forward to watching you until you started pandering to minorities for such fake injustices. I work in the REAL world. The racists are not white, trust me! You have it completely backwards but how would you know that living in your little world?? Im so sick of it. Whites are harrassed repeatedly and nothing is done!!!! I hope your show gets cancelled. What a completely out of touch person you are....its just crazy!!!!
