Jimmy Fallon Makes ‘Tonight Show’ Debut [Video]

Jimmy Fallon brought ‘The Tonight Show’ back to New York last night (Monday) kicking off his first full episode as the new host. The Collage of Saint Rose graduate made sure it was a show for all to remember.

"I’m Jimmy Fallon and I’ll be your host . . . for now. " In his opening monologue, Fallon would make light of the Conon O’Brian situation from years ago thanking the previous host of ‘The Tonight Show’ including Carson, O’Brian, and Jay Leno twice.

Fallon opened himself up to those just seeing him for the first time. Speaking about his days growing up in Saugerties, watching Johnny Carson host the very same show, his wife and daughter, as well as pointing out his parents in the audience.

 

 

After his monologue, Jimmy took a seat behind his desk and said ‘a friend of his owes him $100‘ in a bet that he would ever host the ‘Tonight Show.’ After that, a long line of headliners appeared including Robert De Niro, Tina Fey, Tracey Morgan, Lady Gaga, Mike Tyson and even Joe Namath. The last to appear was ‘Colbert Report’ host Stephen Colbert with a bucket of pennies to pay up on the bet and proclaiming ‘Welcome to 11:30 [b-word].’

 

 

Will Smith was the first guest on the show and would help Jimmy with his ‘Evolution of Hip-Hop’ series, this time doing the ‘Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing.’

 

 

Lastly, Irish rockers U2 were the first musical guest performing twice with ‘Invisible’ and an acoustic version of ‘Ordinary Love.’
