Jimmy Fallon played the perfect foil during the routine - he let Ricky do his job and it was entertaining and funny. If Ricky tried this with David Letterman, Dave would spend the entire time asking him why he couldn't take one of the center cards. ...which is a perfectly valid question that I'm su...

Re: JIm Steranko reviews Agents of SHIELD

Even this comics geek enjoyed the pilot. I thought for a TV show (and a limited budget) it was done pretty well and I hope it sticks. The premiere episode was a ratings hit -- #1 in the target demo (18-49), and the highest premiere in 4 years. It's off to an excellent start. It's unlikely that ther...
