On Monday, Jimmy Fallon brought the "Tonight Show", back to Manhattan after more than 40 years. He was welcomed on set by a host of celebrities and other prominent personalities, such as Robert De Niro, Kim Kardashian, Mike Tyson, former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani and Lady Gaga.
The surprise appearances also included Tina Fey, Tracy Morgan, Mariah Carey, Lindsay Lohan, Joan Rivers, Sarah Jessica Parker, Joe Namath and Fallon’s time-slot rival Stephen Colbert.
The unannounced walk-ons followed Fallon's remark that someone owed him $100 after betting he would never host the "Tonight Show," at which point De Niro and others strode on stage one after another, each dropping bills onto his desk.
The best part was when Colbert showered Fallon with a bucket of pennies before taking a selfie with the new host.
“Welcome to eleven-thirty, b***h!” Colbert shouted as he welcomed Fallon to the show.
Last week, actor Will Smith and Irish band U2 were announced as the first guests of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”
“I'm Jimmy Fallon and I'll be your host -- for now," Fallon told the audience, marking the beginning of a new era.
Fallon will be the fourth host of the program since 1962. His predecessor, 62-year-old Jay Leno bade a tearful goodbye last week, wrapping up 22 years as host of the famous NBC network program.
