The Roots To Become 'Late Night'-ers

Monday, November 17, 2008

In today's most random and WTF news...Progressive rap group, The Roots have signed on to be the house band for the Late Night Show when Saturday Night Live alum Jimmy Fallon takes over in 2009. Let the question mark thought bubbles form over every one's head. I don't know how I feel about this..., it seems like a pretty big honor on one hand and the other it just seems like The Roots are groveling. I've had the pleasure to see The Roots live this year and well...they are much much much much much too good to be on a late night show playing intro music and fake laughing at all of Jimmy Fallon's lame jokes. I can just feel the good old fashioned side-eyes from Roots drummer, ?uestlove for every single show. Here's hoping that *ahem* 'things don't fall apart'...sorry just prepping myself for all of the yawn-inducing jokes that Fallon will be spewing out and had to get one out myself....
