    Fallon is great at ruining his guest's delivery. Mulaney is such a pro he just powers through it.

    I'm Pete Davidson's age and I also could not name 1 Bob Dylan song if you put a gun to my head. I recognize the name obviously, but I am not sure if I have ever heard one of his songs.

    I love Jimmy. People are so critical of his humor, but I live for it. I, too, am usually the person whom laughs too long and too loud.

    I’ve never seen Jimmy Fallon so viscerally hate a person. And then John Mulaney is just refusing to take any of Jimmy’s jokes or banter with him. Weird vibe between these two.

    Wait I think I might have been at that concert... I saw Steely Dan at the Beacon in October 2018 and they played Josie and a few songs later they played My Old School. So there’s a good chance I missed out on running into John Mulaney. Oof

    Fallon is near tops on the All-time Sucks List of SNL cookie cutter no-talent cram-down-our-throats so-called comedians. His "humor" is unoriginal, cringe-worthy slurry. Hurts to watch...

    As a Steely Dan fan since their first album dropped in late 1972, and who first saw them in concert in April 1974 this is priceless stuff. My wife and I spent most of the 1970's trying to convince anyone who would listen that Walter Becker and Donald Fagen were the best composing duo since Lennon and McCartney. Like Mulaney, I think we mostly failed, but it wasn't for lack of trying.

    Jimmy Fallon works from the assumption that every guest is nervous and needs his support. He gushes over every single word John is saying, laughs hysterically at every antidote. It’s so condescending.

    John helped bring Stefon to life. That's amazing when I consider in the 40plus yrs of SNL, The Stefon character is arguably Mt. Rushmore status
