Jimmy Fallon, SNL alum and all around funny man, debuted as the new host of The Tonight Show this past week & absolutely killed it. Fallon’s first show pulled in 11.3 million viewers, which didn’t break the numbers brought in by Leno’s final show, but was still respectable for a new host. (Eonline) The show’s official guests were Will Smith and U2, but it wouldn’t be Fallon without a few cameos from his famous friends (Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, and Mariah Carey) to name a few.
One of the best skits of the night was Fallon and Smith’s “Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing” video, which brought about gut busting laughter (at least from my end) mostly while watching both men do the “Carlton”. (Eonline) Fresh Prince of Bel-Air fans unite. (Clip under!)

Throughout the week there was more hilarity when Michelle Obama and Will Ferrell visited the show to guest star on the popular Late Night sketch, “Ew!” prompting more tears of laughter.

Jimmy Fallon had an incredible first week as the new Tonight Show host. With guests from Will Smith to Michelle Obama, everyone is sure that Fallon is the real deal. We wish him continued success and officially welcome him into our homes as the new host of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon!
