Jimmy Fallon Begins Run On NBC's "Tonight Show"

(New York, NY) -- The "Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon is coming out of the gates strong. On Monday, Jimmy opened up "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" by thanking the five previous regular hosts of the late night program. Monday also marked the "Tonight Show's" return to New York after being film in Burbank, California for over 40-years. After introducing his house band The Roots and his announcer Steve Higgins, Jimmy asked Higgins for a second introduction before diving into his first "Tonight Show" monologue, which revolved around the Winter Olympics. He then brought back some of his much-loved "Late Night" skits, such as "Superlatives" and "Evolution of Dancing."
