Dick Cavett Gave Jimmy Fallon a Talk Show Host Blessing Last Night


Legendary talk show host Dick Cavett was a guest on Fallon last night, and Jimmy conducted his interview in a recreation of the set from The Dick Cavett Show to make him feel more welcome. The whole interview is basically the two of them taking turns gushing about their admiration for each other, and Fallon surprises Cavett with an old clip from his first appearance on The Jack Paar Tonight Show in 1961 where he started out as a talent booker. It’s hard to tell who is the bigger fan here, but if we’re counting by excited nose scrunching it’s definitely Jimmy.
