Steve Garfield Asks Jimmy Fallon How He Plans To Include "The People Formally Known As The Audience" Into Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

Jimmy Fallon is gearing up to take over Late Night from Conan O'Brien on March 2, 2009 and spent the last week on Twitter. With so many "real" Twitter accounts it's cool when it's the real person engaged in social media and community. Jimmy is on numerous social networks and he posted his first video blog entry on Monday, December 8th introducing it as a new nightly feature of his new show. In the 90 second video he gives a behind the scenes look at the Studio 6B the historic space where he will host the show and introduces Ask Jimmy? a feature that he will use to answer questions that come to him from the Internet and his house band The Roots.

He uploaded a new video everyday this past week answering questions in today's video, DECEMBER 12TH - ASK JIMMY. Who other than the great Steve Garfield from showed up in the video to ask Jimmy the following question:

"Steve: It's great to see you videoblogging, I love the behind the scenes stuff and I'm excited about the possibility of you including content from the people formally known as the audience. What are you going to do with that, how are you going to include us?

Jimmy: Thanks, that's a good question Steve Garfield. We want to include the audience as much as we can... This willl carry over to our show... I think it's awesome. Whatever's coming out, however we can incorporate technology with the audience, and our show, you will be on the show. Good question.
" - from Steve Garfield's Off On A Tangent: Daily weblog on pop culture and technology.

It's will be interesting to see if he can keep up with a daily video blog like Ze Frank. At least Jimmy has a team of writers, producers and TV network to help him.

Thanks to Steve Garfield for posting this on his blog.
