Over the weekend, Jimmy Fallon announced via Twitter that NBC will air a Best of Late Night primetime special this Sunday January 5th at 9:00PM. With Fallon’s transition to The Tonight Show coming up in February, the two-hour special will be a fitting salute to his five years churning out one viral-friendly musical bit, recurring sketch, and celebrity interview after another on the late night time slot. According to one press release, the special will include “Joking Bad,” “Evolution of Mom Dancing” with Michelle Obama, “Scrambled Eggs” with Paul McCartney, and probably at least ten things with Justin Timberlake.
