Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show, which he officially inherited February 17, is looking a whole lot like Late Show with Jimmy Fallon — lots of singing and dancing, #hashtag conversations and comedy sketches with buddies from his SNL days. Even the First Lady made an appearance. It’s what we expected: Fallon does fun time well. The 39-year-old brings a lot of playfulness (and talent) to the late-night timeslot, like a goody goody teen who’s finally cutting loose…on Red Bull and vodkas.
