Comment: The week of Jimmy Kimmel, Fitz And The Tantrums on Monday, Garbage on Wednesday, and Meghan Trainor on Thursday, all with new releases, all should be worthies in a live setting. Usually it isn’t neck and neck with Fallon, usually Fallon is boss but sometimes the numbers catch up with Kimmel. Now if only he would have a shave.
