New Host for Tonight Show
Jimmy is the sixth tonight show star in 60 years. He started out by saying “I’m Jimmy Fallon, and I’ll be your host…for now.” He’s remade the top-rated show, which has been unchanged since Johnny Carson made it essential. Jimmy’s parents were in the audience and his infant daughter was backstage as he reintroduced himself, his band, The Roots, and his announcer to viewers. And after vowing to collect on a $100 bet from his buddy…who said he would never be the host of The Tonight Show, Robert De Niro walked onstage and threw a $100 dollar bill at Fallon followed by a parade of several celebrities. Jimmy’s monologue was chock-full of Olympics jokes. His plan is to keep it entertaining with lots of humor, guests, games and great music! Good luck Jimmy Fallon!
