Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show is fun, but likely doomed

Scott Stinson: For all the positives out of the new Tonight Show it’s hard not to escape the feeling that the whole format is dated and doomed. All the YouTube videos and Twitter buzz that Fallon can drum up won’t change the fact that his television audience has a median age, according to Nielsen, of 53. 53! That’s younger that Leno (58.2) and Letterman (58.9), but still indicative of the fact that the young folk are not into talk shows. I used to watch Letterman when I was in my twenties; presumably I would now just watch the highlights the following morning.

Seinfeld on Tuesday made a joke about how Fallon would be horribly aged by the pressures of his new gig and the constant Timberlake parodies, then he laughed and said he wished him 30 years of success and hoped to be a guest until the 39-year-old host was old and grey.

Somehow, I doubt it: http://natpo.st/1d4OwPC

Patriotic challenges we would like to see featured on The Amazing Race Canada

With our vast array of geographical landscapes and climates, from the Prairies to the Maritimes, to our diverse cultural traditions, from eating seal hearts to poutine, there’s enough diversity here to rival any of the exotic locales and competitions found on the original series. Here’s a few ideas for contests that could only happen here: natpo.st/SKFsHF

Quiz the Season: Test your knowledge of Christmas TV specials
A good number of what we generally consider Christmas “traditions” are a bit dodgy. Do people really roast chestnuts? And has anyone seriously demanded figgy pudding? But everyone watches Christmas TV specials. Which means you should be able to ace the Post’s annual quiz. TAKE IT HERE: natpo.st/QLtIHK
