How Did Jimmy Fallon Do on His First ‘Tonight Show’?

Jimmy Fallon took over The Tonight Show from last night, and I think we’re in for some good stuff. I’ve always been a fan of Jimmy’s, and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon really found its footing rather quickly, so I’m sure his audience has traveled right on over to the earlier timeslot with him and can’t wait to see what he’ll do next.

The premiere of the new show took place last night in New York, from the same studios Johnny Carson left 42 years ago for Los Angeles. It was great to see the show back in the Big Apple, and I think he did a great job.

Will Smith appeared, and the two put together a great number about the evolution of hip hop dancing, which you can see below:

U2 also performed on the show, while Robert DeNiro turned up to turn over $100 he said he owed Jimmy from a bet. There were also appearances from Tina Fey, Joe Namath, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, Mariah Carey, Joan Rivers, Kim Kardashian, Seth Rogen, Mike Tyson, Lady Gaga, Lindsay Lohan, Tracy Morgan, Sarah Jessica Parker and Stephen Colbert. What a show!

Did you watch Jimmy’s first episode of The Tonight Show? Is it something you’ll tune into regularly?
