Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon is an American late-night talk show hosted by comedian Jimmy Fallon. The hour-long show, which premiered on March 2, 2009, ran weeknights at 12:35 am Eastern/11:35 pm Central on NBC in the United States; the third incarnation of the Late Night franchise originated by David Letterman, the program originated from NBC Studio 6B in the GE Building at 30 Rockefeller Center in New York City. The show opened with a brief monologue from Fallon, followed by a comedy "desk piece," as well as prerecorded segments and audience competitions; the next segment was devoted to a celebrity interview, with guests ranging from actors and musicians to media personalities and political figures. Hip hop/neo soul band The Roots served as the show's house band, Steve Higgins was the show's announcer; the show closed with either a musical or comedy performance, or a cooking segment. The show employed digital media into its comedy, which became crucial to its success. In 2013, Fallon was selected by NBC to succeed a retiring Jay Leno as host of The Tonight Show.

The final episode of Late Night under Fallon aired one night after Leno's final episode of The Tonight Show on February 6, 2014. Most of the cast and crew began working on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, which premiered on February 17, 2014. Seth Meyers was named as Fallon's replacement, Late Night with Seth Meyers debuted after the Sochi Olympics; the show's ratings remained above its rival shows throughout most of the series' run. In 2011, the show garnered two Emmy Award nominations, including Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series; the show began with the opening sequence as Steve Higgins proclaiming "From Studio 6B/6A in Rockefeller Center, the NBC presents Late Night with Jimmy Fallon!", announced that night's guests and "the legendary Roots crew". Just before Higgins introduced Fallon, the camera cut to a shot of The Roots, who shouted three numbers symbolizing the episode number of Late Night; as the camera panned over to the main stage, some members of The Roots performed actions to get the camera's attention.

Higgins introduced Fallon with a drawn-out "And here he is, Jimmy Fallon!", Fallon began his brief monologue. Fallon gave the cue cards for a joke to audience members if the joke fell flat. Jimmy would segue directly from the final punchline of his monologue into saying, "Ladies and gentlemen, we've got a great show for you tonight. Give it up for The Roots!", who would play as Fallon walked to his desk. After the monologue, Fallon performed a comedy "desk piece." Some were weekly: "Pros and Cons" on Tuesdays, "Late Night Hashtags" on Thursdays. Fridays were reserved for Fallon to write "Thank You Notes" to figures that have given him material for the past week; the popularity of these "Thank You Notes" led to the release of two books full of the favorites. He sometimes had the entire crew of the show write letters home. After the desk piece ended and a commercial break followed there was a competition involving players selected from the studio audience; these included "Wheel of Carpet Samples," "Wax on Wax off," "Cell Phone Shootout," "Models and Buckets," "Lick it for Ten," "Let Us Play with Your Look," "Put It In Reverse," and "Hot Dog in a Hole."

The segment featured a group-performance competition, "Battle of the Instant Bands" or "Battle of the Instant Dance Crews." In the show's third segment, the first guest arrived. That guest stayed after the next break either played a game with Jimmy and some audience members, or performed in a skit with Jimmy. Next, a second guest entered after the show's third break. Once these interviews were completed and the show had taken its final commercial break, the musical guest performed. Once the musical guest finished, Fallon bid the viewers farewell; as credits rolled, Fallon ran up and down the stairs of the studio giving high fives to the audience before exiting backstage. In 2004 NBC announced that in five years, Late Night host Conan O'Brien would replace Jay Leno as the host of The Tonight Show. Fallon, at the time, had just left Saturday Night Live, was pursuing a movie career. SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels was the first to suggest to the comedian that he'd be perfect to fill O'Brien's empty seat.

Michaels said he wanted Fallon to be the new host dating back to the day that Fallon left Saturday Night Live, which occurred only a few months before O'Brien's departure was announced. Michaels, a staunch advocate of Fallon, urged NBC to give Fallon a holding deal in February 2007 so that he couldn't be lured elsewhere. According to Michaels: Jimmy's built for this kind of show. He's funny, he's charming, he's got a good way of connecting with people, and he knows music, movies and TV well, the backbone of these shows. Fallon wasn't approached by NBC until early 2008. Fallon's movie career, self-admittedly "hadn't worked out that great," and NBC contacted him to become O'Brien's replacement; the network had a couple of other candidates in mind to replace Conan, but Michaels insisted he'd only produce the show with Fallon as host. In May 2008, NBC announced that Fallon would be O'Brien's replacement, "an announcement, met with some bewilderment sni
