NBC's 11:35 p.m. timeslot is about to get more adorable
Jimmy Fallon has been training for his new “Tonight Show” gig his entire life, jokes a promo for the revamped NBC late night program.
The 35-second spot flashes back to an early elementary school-aged version of the former “Saturday Night Live” funnyman sharing monologue jokes at show-and-tell and performing panel interviews with the star of the school play.
“Did you hear this news? They say in Washington that the president is a poopy head,” the 1979 version of the comic quips to a captivated classroom audience.
And of course, it wouldn't be a Fallon promo without an adorable child version of house band, The Roots, who are there with toy instruments in hands.
“The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” debuts on Feb. 17. Longtime “SNL” head writer and Weekend Update host Seth Meyers will take over “Late Night.”
