It seems like just yesterday we were watching Jimmy Fallon deliver a beautiful and touching monologue during his first night as the host of the iconic Tonight Show. Actually, it was February. Time flies.
Fallon hit his 100th episode this week and to celebrate, we’re looking at his 10 best moments as host of The Tonight Show.
Watch The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon weekdays at 3E/12P on Much.
10. Jimmy’s $100 Tonight Show Bet
For those viewers who were first introduced to comedian Jimmy Fallon during his debut as the host of The Tonight Show, they got a little taste of what the SNL alum had in store for his reign. Jimmy’s first skit as host of the series included his famous friends paying their $100 bet after he proved them wrong and scored the Tonight Show. Who are some of these friends? Everyone. Literally, everyone.
9. Jimmy Sets An Ice Cream Date
The jig is up that late night shows aren’t actually filmed live or late at night, which makes it even more exciting when something off the cuff happens. For example, while performing his monologue about Tinder, Fallon noticed a young woman who was very excited about the dating app. Naturally, he grabbed the woman and her single friend and sent them off on an ice cream date.
8. Water War with Lindsay Lohan
For those of us (guilty) who couldn’t look away from the train wreck each week that went by the name Lindsay on the Oprah Winfrey Network, it seemed that the troubled starlet was doomed to ruin her career. Kudos to Fallon for giving Lohan the opportunity to be a guest on his show, where she looked happy and healthy for the first time in a long time.
7. Photobombs with Celebrities
Whether it’s racing around the halls or photobombing people from the Top of the Rock, Fallon makes use of his studio at 30 Rock.
6. Pros and Cons
We love the weekly segment that has Fallon showing the Pros and Cons of a situation. Here he is listing of reasons to RSVP ‘yes’ and RSVP ‘no’ to Kimye’s wedding.
5. Fallon Faboys
One of the many things that makes Jimmy Fallon so likable is that he’s a big a fan of music as the rest of us, evident here in his interview with the surviving members of Nirvana.
4. Ragtime With Jimmy Fallon
One of the greatest things about Fallon as a host is his ability to convince some of the biggest celebs in the world to do skits that likely sound crazy at first. For example, getting Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey to perform a Ragtime version of Jason Derulo’s Dirty.
3. Let It Go with Idina Menzel
Long-time fans of Fallon were a little worried that Jimmy may drop some of his most iconic skits when he switched over to The Tonight Show, including his performances with The Roots and classroom instruments. Thankfully, Jimmy knows what works and what’s worth keeping.
2. That Time Jennifer Lawrence Beefed with Fallon
…And it was so good.
