Watch Jimmy Fallon’s First ‘Tonight Show’ Promo
Jimmy Fallon’s run as host of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon lasted only five brilliant years. That’s chump change when you look at Conan O’Brien’s sixteen years in the same seat, and David Letterman’s decade as host of Late Night before him. But Fallon isn’t going anywhere, really. Come Feb. 17 he will move to a new time slot as host of the esteemed The Tonight Show, replacing Jay Leno’s seventeen years in the host seat.
Things are in motion for the change, too. NBC rolled out the first promo for Fallon’s new gig, that takes viewers on a ride through The Tonight Show‘s sixty years on air. They even pay homage to Conan’s infamous short time on the show. Watch below.
Fellow Saturday Night Live alum Seth Meyers replaces Fallon at Late Night on Feb. 24.
