(Newser) – Jimmy Fallon wasn’t going out of his way to impress anyone on his first Late Night webisode, Gawker reports. The video blogs airing in advance of his March 2 premiere started last night, and the new host “couldn’t stop throwing up his hands or touching his head like a spastic spider monkey,” writes Ryan Tate. Still, better for Fallon to mess up now than on the actual show "supported by actual big-money advertisers."
