Hosting a late night show is hard work, and last night (October 6) “The Tonight Show” stud Jimmy Fallon needed a little help from his predecessor Jay Leno.
Faking an injury, Fallon blurted out, "I don’t think I can continue, but of course, here at The Tonight Show, the monologue has to go on, so I think I’m gonna have to sub out. Can someone tag in for me please?"
The competition between late night television shows has always been fierce, however David Letterman couldn’t help but show some love and respect to Jay Leno as he made his last appearance as host of “The Tonight Show.”
The “Late Show” host began, “Well, as with the world, tonight is a big night for change in late night television. Our friend Jay Leno [has spent] 22 years as host of ‘The Tonight Show.’”
