    I'm old school. I typically only have the night off on Mondays, so I choose Letterman if he has someone on that I want to see. Otherwise, maybe there is another rerun of Criminal Minds on.

    Fallon is a litlle suck ass and will do anything to make a buck, ie;Fallon alarm clock app and albums.
    I've never seen a show host suck up to guests like Fallon, now he's on Fords teets.

    More likely that .01% will be purchasing more marshmallows, 2-liter sugarwaters, and chocolates. A truck would probably scare them.

    Roger that. He paid the price for not sucking up to the party line and not being a PC Weenie.

    This is what is know as diversity today.

    He sucked up to Moochelle China Tour. Probably jealous because she can do three real pushups and he can only do one.

    I see this having little affect on sales. Simply because the vast majority of Tonight show viewers are big city dwellers and have no room or need for a truck. And I think most people understand this is an advertising stunt.

    Yet more people know today, that Ford has a new F150 coming out this fall than the number of people that know GM came out with a new truck almost a year ago.

    Is that really a 2015 F-150 on the deck of the Intrepid?

    Just days before the NYIAS?

    Holy cow, what a score.

    I see ford getting very little sales up tick from it BUT NISSAN/Toyota would have scored "BIG" as it would give legitimacy / visibility to their units something they need and FORD doesn't (same with GM/FCA)

    Yup. The Tonight Show is now a propaganda outlet like the rest of NBC's garbage.

    He's 'decided to buy a pickup' - but he's not going to do it right away. He's going to wait. Quite some time. Until the next model year.

    I don't understand all the Fallon hate here. I've enjoyed the Tonight show more now than I did with Jay. Jimmy comes off as a nice light hearted guy and has fun with his guests and the audience. The ratings are proof. Ford did score with this promo.

    He just isn't as funny.. I never cared for him on SNL always laughing during skits, that's annoying.

    Jay was getting stale and boring, so a change was ok.
    Fallon isn't very funny, and his reason for wanting a truck is suspect - he wants to buy pumpkins! Couldn't something smaller than an F150 hold a few pumpkins??????
