The Tonight Show torch is about to be passed once again when Jimmy Fallon takes over for Jay Leno on February 17th!
And in the first promo for the new edition of the long-running late night show, NBC is taking a look back at ALL of the hosts who have ever sat behind The Tonight Show desk over the past 60 years!
From Steve Allen and Jack Paar in the '50s and '60s, to the incredible 30-year run for Johnny Carson. Of course, Jay Leno gave the Peacock plenty of memorable moments, but we were sort of surprised that the network opted to also include Conan O’Brien in this teaser!
After hiring and then quickly firing the redheaded funny man, we thought they’d shy away from including him in the timeline.
He only gets some quick screen time in this (even quicker than they allowed him to host the show) but we’re glad NBC execs decided to not erase him out of the promo completely.
There’s been a lot of history made on The Tonight Show, and even more to come!
Watch your first look at the new Tonight Show (below)!
We’re excited to see your 11:35 debut, Jimmy!
