Watch a Thing Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon Did Together on TV Last Night


Here’s the opening of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night, featuring a phone call between Fallon and Jay Leno that turns into a Broadway show tune. THR reports that this musical sketch was Fallon’s idea and that his producers flew to LA to film Jay Leno’s part after Leno signed off on it. It’s hard to imagine Conan or Letterman being cool enough with Leno to do something like this during the last two late night wars in 2010 and 1993, respectively, even if it is a pretty harmless bit. It’s definitely a sign that the Leno/Fallon transition is going smoothly and is a friendlier one than any previous big late night shift.
