The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon - Show Summary

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon is a late night TV talk show series on NBC hosted by actor and comedian Jimmy Fallon. The hip-hop group The Roots serves as house band. Jimmy Fallon got his big break when he was invited to join the cast of Saturday Night Live in the late '90s, now he hosts NBC's Flagship TV Show. Free tickets to this TV show are now available.

Jimmy Fallon's likable persona, improv skills, and stand-up comedy experience made him an ideal choice to take over the king of all late night shows, The Tonight Show. The youthful Fallon proved to be an accomplished impersonator, doing spot-on impressions of celebrities like Jerry Seinfeld and Adam Sandler as well as hilarious takes on everyone from Osama bin Laden to Barry Gibb.

On SNL he also played memorable original characters like sarcastic "computer guy" Nick Burns and The Leather Man. Jimmy Fallon is also a musician, and he would often play parody versions of hit songs.

Should you see The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon being taped?

The Peoples Court TV Show
  Fallon took over NBC's Late Night when its longtime host Conan O'Brien took over The Tonight Show from Jay Leno. Though O'Brien's tenure at The Tonight Show was famously short-lived, Jimmy Fallon thrived at Late Night, proving himself to be a genial, funny talk show host who was adept at putting together hilarious comedic bits.

The show is a fast paced fun-by-the-minute sprint before the credits roll. Some of the guests end up slowing down the show, which could equally exist without them. Before long, the TV audience would bore of that format, so the guest format maintains a balance in the show.

Alongside his announcer Steve Higgins, Jimmy Fallon creates a fun and comfortable environment for his guests while discussing current topics. He also invites them to play games and participate in comedic sketches such "Ewwww", "Pros and Cons" and "Lip Sync". Mr Fallon's other regular bits on the show include "Thank You Notes" and "Fake Hash Tags."

Tonight Show Audience Demographic   Jimmy Fallon on SNL Weekend Update   Tonight Show Tickets

The Tonight Show Demographic

The Tonight Show has a diverse following that covers multi generations of TV viewers. But despite its wide demographic skews, it generally skews relatively older than most other late-night talk shows.

Nielsen data only allows live watching and views within twelve hours to count, which may be at odds with younger people who tend to watch the show later, or on the following day or even mobile, Youtube or Hulu where none of the views count.

SNL Alumni

The host of the Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon is well-liked by Saturday Night Live fans who enjoyed his work on that TV show as a member of the cast and co-anchor of "Weekend Update" with Tina Fey and who also loved him as the host of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Jimmy Fallon was on the cast of SNL for 11 years from 1998 to 2009, whereupon he began his first dedicated TV show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Previous Hosts of the Tonight Show on NBC   NBC's Tonight Show After Dark

Previous Hosts on The Tonight Show:

Since its humble beginning with Steve Allen in June 1954, The Tonight Show has seen over 14 hosts in over the 60 years of its history. The host's with the longest reigns have been Jack Paar (5 years), Johnny Carson (30 years) and Jay Leno (17 years). These hosts were all consecutive from 1957 to 2009 a feat that is unlikely to be duplicated in the modern TV arena, where hosts are cut at a whim based on Nielsen viewer ratings.

Steve Allen (1954 - 1957)
Ernie Kovacs (1956 - 1957)
Jack Lescoulie (Jan 1957- June 1957)
Al "Jazzbo" Collins (June 1957 - July 1957)
Jack Paar (1957 - 1962)
Johnny Carson (1962 - 1992)
Jay Leno (1992 - 2009)
Conan O'Brien (2009 - 2010)
Jay Leno (2010 - 2014)
During the April 1962 - Sept 1962 season various hosts and formats were adopted for this show. The TV hosts for this show were:
  • Merv Griffin
  • Bill Cullen
  • Jerry Lewis
  • Groucho Marx
  • Mort Sahl

Tonight Show News Program in 1957:

Steve Allen's uncomfortable departure from the Tonight Show in 1957 was forced upon him by NBC execs that needed him to concentrate on NBC's Sunday night variety program that was supposed to combat Ed Sullivan's variety show on CBS, that was gaining ground with Elvis Presley's popular first appearance on TV, the year prior.

The Tonight Show was taken over by Jack Lescoulie and transformed into a news program called Tonight! America After Dark. Al "Jazzbo" Collins was also a host later in that year.

The whole project was ultimately a disaster and Jack Paar brought back the original format, albeit his own interpretation, in the latter part of 1957. It is that show format that continues to this day.

10 W 48th Street

The closest parking is not always the best as it often takes longer to park and retrieve your vehicle as fellow TV show patrons have the same idea. A better choice of parking may be the second choice or further away by a couple of Avenues.
