Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show Premiere Featured SJP, Kim Kardashian And More
There's no better way to usher in a brand-new era of The Tonight Show than with a glorified parade of celebrities to sit opposite of the show's new host, Jimmy Fallon. As the latest famous face to lead the 60-year-old late-night TV institution, 39-year-old Jimmy started off his show by briefly recapping his childhood and career as well as by introducing his parents—both of whom were proudly present in the audience.
But then the fun began: after Jimmy and Will Smith performed an "Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing" sketch, celebrity after celebrity strolled out and dumped $100 bills onto his desk. The procession included the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, Rudy Guliani, Mike Tyson, Stephen Colbert and Joan Rivers—the latter of whom was banned from The Tonight Show decades ago following a longstanding tiff with former host Johnny Carson.
In case you missed the fun, catch up by watching the video—featuring a very brunette Kim Kardashian—below. And remember, new episoses will air every night at 12 pm EST on NBC!
