Jimmy Fallon went to bed last night feeling great!
And then woke up to THAT! HA!
The brand new Tonight Show host scored some of the highest late night ratings NBC has had in years during his big debut last night!
But when the New York Daily News tried to report on his big coming out party today, they sort of screwed him over with their headline placement!
Glance at the cover of the tabloid quickly enough and you might think Jimmy was a sexual pervert accused of attacking women at a race track!
To be fair, we’re not sure if Fallon has an alibi to prove his innocence, so maybe the Daily News is onto something??
Jimmy is many things but he is NOT a sexual predator. We repeat: Jimmy Fallon is NOT a sexual predator!
He is however off to a great start behind the desk that used to belong to Jay Leno! He started right where Jay left off - at #1, winning his first night easily!
Will he be able to keep his fans tuning in? With headline like those, it might be a challenge!
No thank you note for you, Daily News!

We think Jimmy Fallon looks pretty good behind his new desk, and viewers seem to agree as well, for the most part!
Jimmy had 11.31 million viewers tuning in last night during his inaugural episode, which was over 2 million more watching than there were during Conan O'Brien's premiere back in 2009. However, the two had the same rating of 3.8 in the 18-48 demographic.
The Tonight Show chair is still moist from 22 years of Jay Leno's sweet-ass ass sweat, but you might be surprised to learn how quickly other late night hosts embraced the changing of the guards!
ABC's Jimmy Kimmel, for one, hopes they're rivals for decades to come!
Now this is how you start off your new run as the Tonight Show host!
Jimmy Fallon brought it back to New York, and he did it big!
Last night was his opening night as the host with the most, and he kicked it off by collecting on some bets. And OF COURSE those bets are only with some of the most famous people in Hollywood!
Not only did Tina Fey, Seth Rogen, and Mariah Carey pop in to pay up, but Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan were also on hand to fork over their cha-ching! Even Joan Rivers was there despite her almost-30-year ban that started when Johnny Carson exiled her from the show for leaving her gig as a permanent guest to go host a competing program. Along with that, her appearance on Jimmy's new show came 49 years to the day after her first appearance on Johnny's Tonight Show.
Talk about powerful! Jimmy is starting off by making things right!
But we bet you're wondering why all these celebs were handing over their hard-earned dollars??

The dance move highlights included the "Steal The Face" (Then Swallow It And Throw It Back Up), the "I'm About To Breakdance," and, of course, the "Carlton!"
