Black, female and in charge of Baltimore

'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' (NBC)

This was the year Fallon went from "Him?" to "Hmmmm!," expanding his hosting duties from the far reaches of post-prime time to the Emmy Awards. Sweetness and heart are not the first qualities you'd think to look for in a late-night host, but Fallon and company light candles against the dark.
