I didn't see it (yet), but his first act as host of the Tonight Show is U2 performing on the rooftop? Jimmy Fallon is the man. #jayWho— Dave N (@RunnerDave20194) February 18, 2014
Way to go on Jimmy Fallon being the new host for the Tonight Show, and he did a great job, and looking forward to seeing more of the show.— William Stewart (@Bill381987) February 18, 2014
Verdict? It's the first show. I'm certain most of the whingers are Jay Leno fans. They'll soon get used to Fallon and before long they will be fans of the show. Even better, Fallon is a nice guy, unlike Letterman and the other late night hosts who are always 'mean' as a friend said to us today.
