'The Tonight Show' with Jimmy Fallon premieres Feb. 17

Jimmy Fallon said goodbye to his former studio and home of "Late Night" on Feb. 7, and now it's time for the former "Saturday Night Live" star to ring in the new era of "The Tonight Show" at midnight (after the Olympics). For the first time in 42 years, the show is taping from the Big Apple, and Fallon is kicking things off with Will Smith and U2. He brought along house band The Roots, and funny-man announcer Steve Higgins. Use the hashtag #tonightshow to join the live conversation, or comment here.

    I'm pretty pumped for Jimmy Fallon at midnight. I'll be even more pumped when he comes on at 11:35. #zombie #fallontonight

    Will Smith doesn't age. Ever. Except for those few gray hairs. Besides that, he doesn't look a day over "The Fresh Prince." #fallontonight

    Jimmy went for the gray suit tonight. Weird, because it kind of washes him out. Where's the power suit, my friend? #fallontonight

    Or maybe that's just my non-HD receiving HDTV that's making him look washed out.

    Now we know where Jimmy gets his humor from. Pops is cracking jokes about the money he paid for Jimmy's public education. #ithinkitwasajoke

    Fallon about The Roots: "They could play with Jay Z...They're the most talented band ever." Aw. I'm feeling the love. #FallonTonight

  • Emily Wright, A&E producer 2/18/2014 5:06:25 AM
    Jimmy just got choked up: "To think there's going to be a kid out there asking to stay up to watch me, it means a lot to me." #fallontonight

    Jimmy's monologue mark is a four leaf clover. I wonder what mine would be. Probably... a ravioli. #FallonTonight

    Higgins just re-introduced Fallon so he could do his monologue for real. Silly silly. #FallonTonight

    Okay, guys. Pink eye in both eyes is not that unheard of. I had conjunctivitis in both eyes in kindergarten. It happens. #poorbob

    Sidenote: Jimmy seems SO MUCH more comfortable in his "Tonight Show" premiere than he did in his "Late Night" premiere. Oh, the memories.

    Spike Lee directed Jimmy's intro? OK, winning cool points back after those weak superlatives. Let's go Jimmy. #FallonTonight

    Do you think more people recognize Will Smith as a "huge, huge movie star" or as "The Fresh Prince?" I'll choose the latter. #fallontonight
