'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.Dana Edelson / NBC
