Jimmy Fallon

Although he still has months to go before his official debut, is making sure he gets off the ground running. Beginning tonight, the former SNL-er will try to get fans accustomed to a whole new face in late night television.

At 12:35 AM Tuesday morning, the man-who’ll-soon-take-over-Conan’s-time-slot will premiere his very first “video blog.” The five-minute segments, which will be posted daily during Late Night‘s usual hour, will vary in content. It’s hoped the freeform webisodes will allow the new program to find its groove.

NBC is expected to announce an official start date for Jimmy’s program sometime later today. It’s believed Conan O’Brien will step down at the end of February (he takes over for Jay Leno on June 1) leaving Fallon to begin his hosting duties in early March.
