This just coming off the news wires....comic and late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon will be the new virtual host of Universal Hollywood's Tram Tour.

This, in my opinion, is great news. The current virtual hosts, who appear in prerecorded bits on the video monitors above your head while you tour the lot, are the hosts of Access Hollywood. The host currently is Billy Bush. Billy Bush grates on my nerves like no other, he is just so smarmy and comes off like such a tool. I'll be happy to see him gone.

That being said, bringing Jimmy Fallon in is a great move...made even better if he at some point does his Neil Young impression. Absolutely amazing. If you haven't seen it, google it....its fantastic.

Potentially a huge, huge upgrade.

Good news in my opinion. Fallon does a good job on his late night show so it will be interesting to see him on the tour. Bye Bye Whoopi.

"...he is just so smarmy and comes off like such a tool. "

And Jimmy Fallon doesn't?

Ya know, Fallon to me seems the least smarmy of the lot of current late night host. He seems, like Conan to an extent, to truly be enjoying the job and interested in being there. At least that's my opinion.

I was leaning towards the "tool" part of the sentence. I like Jimmy - he's a decent host - I've just never liked him as a comedian.
