Illustration for article titled New Late Night to Treat Game Debuts Like Movie Premiere

Jimmy Fallon, who takes over "Late Night" from Conan O'Brien beginning on Monday, says the show under him will cater to the interests of a younger audience "into tech stuff, gadgets, video games."


Speaking to Movieweb, Fallon - the former Weekend Update anchor on Saturday Night Live - says appealing to the coveted 18-to-34 year old age range isn't that difficult.

"I'm just going to be honest with what I like and what I do. What I enjoy. We're not going to hide the fact that people are on the Internet all day," Fallon said. "We'll treat a video game premiere like a movie premiere."


Interesting. Of course a premiere of anything needs a guest, and movies are a natural for late-night promotion because they have recognizable, dynamic stars in real life. I'd be curious to see who he brings in for an AAA-title that doesn't have established Hollywood talent in the voice acting, or making a cameo.
