Tonight Show Class: New Trailer for Jimmy Fallon Has Nod to Conan O’Brien


NBC has just released the first teaser for “The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.” All the past hosts are included. There’s even a nod to Conan O’Brien, who had a brief run was treated badly by NBC under its old regime. But this is classy– and you can see Jimmy’s fingerprints all over it. Conan is a friend and mentor, as well as a past writer of “Saturday Night Live.” We’re going to see a kinder, gentler Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Bravo!
