Jimmy Fallon takes over tonight on NBC's "Late Night" show, while "Watchmen" is poised to take over the movies this Friday. We asked our entertainment experts about those developments and more on this week's NewsOK exclusive Entertainment Roundtable. We’re entering a new era of late night TV this week with the debut of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. What are your hopes for this show, Conan O’Brien’s move to "The Tonight Show" and Jay Leno’s debut in prime time? Entertainment Editor Gene Triplett: I just hope Jimmy Fallon has better luck as a late night talk show host than he did launching his movie career. I don't think he's nearly as sharp, sly or funny as Conan and I love it that Conan is taking over The Tonight Show. I've always been a Letterman guy and never watched Leno, so now it'll be thought to pick and choose between Dave and Conan every night. I've never been much of a fan of squeaky-voiced sappy comedy so I won't be tuning in to his prime time gig. I don't see how anyone would want to tune him in five nights a week in prime time. Entertainment writer Brandy McDonnell: Some of the brightest moments I've seen in Fallon's career were on the "Saturday Night Live Weekend Update," and if he can build on that, without rehashing the same old schtick, he has a chance to do well. I'm really impressed with his choice of a house band: I think seeing The Roots play five nights a week on TV might be reason enough alone to tune in. I'm hoping Conan can bring some hipness and zany energy to the staid "Tonight Show" format, but my fondest wish is for him to bring back the "Walker Texas Ranger" lever on a permanent basis. I don't anticipate watching Leno's new show except when he has big guests on the program. Assistant Entertainment Editor George Lang: Jimmy Fallon was the great hope from "SNL," and he even showed a certain flair for drama in "Almost Famous," in which he played a David Geffen-like business manager, and "Band of Brothers." But then he fell into some bad comedy roles and his stock sank on the big screen. He has been Lorne Michaels' choice to replace Conan for years, so as long as he's not just rehashing his old shticks from "SNL" and is given a chance to find his own tone and speed, he has a chance, but there are big shoes to fill. Conan has been one of my favorite hosts since about one year into his talk show -- he has superb comic timing and is a great interviewer, so I'm hoping he does well. As for Leno, NBC has just guaranteed that I will never, ever, ever watch their network at 9 p.m. Central Monday through Friday, unless two Beatles rise from the dead and reunite with the live ones on Leno's solution to the network's desire for inexpensive programming. Assistant features editor Matt Price: Jimmy Fallon was certainly funny in his "Weekend Update" days, and despite a not-so-stellar movie career, I think he’s still got a lot of talent. Meanwhile, Conan will see if his zanier brand of humor can connect with the "Tonight Show" crowd. I’m not particularly looking forward to five days a week of primetime Leno — while he has his moments, is it really worth replacing all those dramatic series? I tend to think this will be a net loss for TV viewers. Another TV event this week is the resumption of the second season of Holly Hunter as a loose-living Oklahoma City police detective on TNT’s "Saving Grace." What do you think of that series? Is it good publicity for OklahomaCity, or damaging to its image? Triplett: I think it's cool that Oklahoma City serves as the backdrop for a smart, gritty, adult police drama. Creator/writer/producer Nancy Miller has only the best intentions at heart, which is try to create a more sophisticated image for the city and state. She knows and loves her hometown and presents it in an intriguing, honest and affectionate way, showing its warts right along with its more appealing attributes. I think it might make a lot of viewers want to pay a visit sometime, check out Bricktown, try a Johnnie's burger, visit the Memorial, sample the unique culture it has to offer. Okie/Bible Belt stereotypes a kept to a minimum. And I find Holly Hunter's complex, flawed character fascinating and wholly sympathetic. McDonnell: "Saving Grace" has grown on me, and I'm looking forward to seeing what the rest of the second season brings for the characters. I think the show got off to a rough start; at first, the characters and storylines seemed to draw too much on the old Oklahoma cowboy and rednecks stereotypes. But I've seen less reliance on stereotypes and more actual character development in later episodes. Plus, the show's creator, Nancy Miller, who comes from OKC, has promised that she will show more than just the stereotypes, and I take that in good faith. I also think the show is at a definite disadvantage since it's filmed in Los Angeles for financial reason. People who live here just have to face the reality that Bricktown on the show isn't going to look like Bricktown in reality; if there was a Bricktown in every city, then one of our major attractions wouldn't be unique, would it? But overall, I think the show is good publicity for OKC, though people might get the idea that the crime rate is higher than it is in actuality. It's successful drama series that isn't just like everything else on TV - it's not CSI: OKC, after all - and deals with mature and real-life issues. I think that's good exposure for the city. Lang: It seems to be finding its footing, and I think Nancy Miller really wants to do right by our city, but I still cannot watch "Saving Grace" without picking it apart -- "That doesn't look like Oklahoma -- that looks like Van Nuys! That's an In-N-Out Burger, not a Johnnie's!" I wonder if New York people do this with all the movies in which Toronto subs for Manhattan. Price: While I haven’t watched much "Saving Grace," I’m glad that Oklahoma City is seen as a worthwhile setting for the drama. Watchmen is opening this weekend. Judging strictly from the pre-release anticipation, could it be as big a hit for Zach Snyder as " 300 " was? McDonnell: I definitely see "Watchmen" outperforming "300," at least at the outset. "Watchmen" has been building buzz since its successful sneak peek last summer at San Diego Comic-Con, and it has some great trailers that have been getting movie and comic book fans salivating. I also think "300" really helped Snyder develop a following, so fans of that film who haven't read "Watchmen" will come to see the new film from the guy who did "300." Plus, "Watchmen" is the most acclaimed and beloved graphic novel ever made, so the source material definitely has its own fanbase eager to see if Snyder's movie does it justice. It will be interesting to see how the movie fares after its intial opening, to see if fans who consider the graphic novel hallowed ground are pleased with the adaptation, and more importantly, if they give it positive word of mouth and go back to see it again and again, "The Dark Knight" style. Triplett: "Watchmen" the graphic novel is much more popular than "300," and anticipation is pretty high for it, so I'd say the chances are excellent that Zach Snyder's latest effort will be the bigger box office success. Lang: I think it might be a little bigger on opening weekend, but the key thing to watch is the second week, which depends on fanboys' and fangirls' reaction and the subsequent word-of-mouth. It's impossible to make anyone completely happy with regard to "Watchmen," but if they come close, it might be good enough. Price: "Watchmen" the graphic novel has had a bigger audience, over the years, than "300," which was also possible. So from that, if the film connects with its core demographic, and if those outside the core demographic decide to give it a shot, then yes, it could do "300" or better numbers. What are the best comic book to movie adaptations, and what comics or graphic novels haven’t made the leap to the big screen yet that could, or should? Price: I think the best list starts with "Dark Knight," and also includes "Iron Man," "X-Men 2," "Spider-Man 2," and the Richard Donner "Superman: The Movie." And there have been some quality non-superhero adaptations as well, like "Road to Perdition" and "Ghost World." I’m looking forward to a couple of films that are already in development: "Green Lantern," officially announced this week, and "Captain America," which is being directed by Joe Johnston, who directed "The Rocketeer." Another superhero series that deserves a shot is "Starman," which was written by James Robinson and originally drawn by Tony Harris. In their series, junk dealer Jack Knight becomes a reluctant hero, taking on the mantle of Starman after his brother’s death. If "Watchmen" stokes a trend for more mature fare, we could see an adaptation of Warren Ellis’ "Transmetropolitan," about a Hunter S. Thompson-style journalist in a dystopic future, or Neil Gaiman’s "Sandman," about the mystical king of dreams. Triplett: I'm still partial to Tim Burton's "Batman" with Michael Keaton as a Dark Knight with a lighter, more likeable side and Jack Nicholson's lunatic, over-the-top Joker. As for comics that could and should make the leap to the big screen, I loved the Justice League of America, Green Lantern and Flash of the Silver Age DC universe. McDonnell: I think Chris Nolan's "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight" set the gold standard for comic book adaptations. I also love "Iron Man," the first two "X-Men" movies and the first two "Spider-Man" films. I'm really looking forward to finally seeing "Thor" on the big-screen; Marvel is set to release it in 2010. That comic has some great visuals and characters that really could work as a movie, if handled properly. Though I must admit, I felt a little more at ease with Matthew Vaughn attached as the director than with Kenneth Branangh, who is now set to helm the movie version of "Thor." Lang: I'm partial to "The Dark Knight" and the Richard Donner "Superman." As for what needs to be done, I think they need to make every Alan Moore comic book and graphic novel into a film, relaunch "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" and make the old anarchist's head explode.
