U2 and Will Smith on Jimmy Fallon's new 'Tonight Show'

Mariah Carey and Lady Gaga also make cameos at Fallon's first night hosting the NBC late-night institution.


A new era of late-night TV began just after midnight on Feb. 18, when NBC aired the first "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon." The episode taped on Monday afternoon (Feb. 17), however, at the network's 30 Rockefeller Plaza headquarters in New York City.


To thunderous applause and with a Cheshire cat grin, Jimmy Fallon walked on to the stage at the NBC Studio in New York Monday night -- the new host in the old home of the "Tonight Show."


"I am Jimmy Fallon and I will be your host -- for now," he said, a pointed reference to the exit-enter-exit history of the last host, Jay Leno. His first joke out of the way, he spent the next few minutes introducing himself to the audience -- his childhood, his family, his career. He was pretty subdued through it all.


But then when the formalities were out of the way, he re-entered the show through the gigantic blue curtains -- the ever-hip Roots playing him in -- and started his show proper: the usual monologue and his usual over-eager but gracious self.

The laughs came easy. And even before the new show's first guests appeared -- Will Smith and U2 -- a parade of celebrities walked up and dumped money on Fallon's desk. Why? "To my buddy who said that I'd never be the host of 'The Tonight Show,' and you know who you are," Fallon said, "you owe me a hundred bucks, buddy." And out came Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, Rudy Guliani, Mike Tyson and many others, slapping down bills.


During the rest of the show, Fallon pulled out old bits with fresh takes -- such as an evolution of hip-hop dancing with Will Smith and 'Late Night Superlatives.'


With Fallon at the helm, the show moves back to New York for the first time since then-host Johnny Carson took it to Los Angeles in 1972.

 Pete Hawkes

Pete Hawkes is a Freeplay composer from Lake Macquarie, Australia. He learned how to play guitar from an old waterlogged guitar that his dad used as a paddle when he was stuck out in the lake having lost his oars. His first professional gig was at 16, playing slide guitar for a Newcastle band. Now, he composes and plays all types of music, from blues, to folk, to classical and all in between. He has currently recorded over 780 pieces. He likes to try new things, like playing the cello and flugelhorn together, or Celtic music arranged for a string quartet. Pete feels that "categories shouldn't be applied to music, it's just sound."
