    to join in the fun. Fallon will also regularly involve his guests in games, usually related to their talents. These games include such things as acting out skits written by children, performing impressions with randomly chosen musical selections, and attempting to deceive one another in guessing games about personal anecdotes. By comparison, Kimmel's approach to his guest segment often includes scripting or pre-recorded skits, usually with an attempt to look like normal conversation. In a video clip entitled "Deleted Scene from "Batman v Superman” Starring Jimmy Kimmel", posted to commemorate the release of the movie Batman v. Superman, Kimmel interviewed actor Ben Affleck (who plays Batman in the film). As the two were talking, they pretended to discuss a segment of the movie where Kimmel was involved as an actor. Affleck hesitantly shares that this extra scene was cut from the final theater version due to run time, but states that he was able to bring a copy of the video clip to show the audience.

One mark of a good host is a distinguishable style of humor; both Fallon and Kimmel have achieved this in their respective shows. Fallon's approach may appeal to a more basic level, the aforementioned skits written by children a prime example. Another recurring segment has Fallon and his guest speak loudly and forcefully while eating a meal, effectively spitting…

    1 - All respect goes to Reza Aslan and his patience on this very intense topic. I completely agree with him, and that you shouldn't blame a single religion for being violent, when the violent part depends on the person. A religion can't support violence, only people do that. There are always those people who do bad stuff, and those who are not a part of that group but just cause they believe in the same religion, doesn't mean they are to be blamed for the same reason. 2 - The letter to Ben…
