Watch Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
- 6 Seasons
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon is part of the Late Night franchise. It is much in the tradition of all late night talk shows that got their start with The Tonight Show. It is filmed in front of a live studio audience at the GE Building in New York City. The show is 60 minutes in duration. It is aired on weeknights on NBC at 12:35 AM Eastern Time. Jimmy Fallon is the host of the show. The announcer is Steve Higgins. The show also has a house band, The Roots, who are known for their hip hop and soul music. The show always opens with a comedic monologue by Fallon. The show then goes to a short commercial break. It then moves on to prerecorded comedy sketches, audience competitions and some kind of comedy bit with Fallon at his desk. The show then will go to the second commercial break. When the show returns from its second commercial break, the first celebrity guest of the night will be brought out. Fallon interviews all kinds of celebrity guests. He invites politicians, actors, sports figures, comedians, musicians and media figures to appear on the show. After Fallon gets done interviewing the first celebrity guest of the evening, the show will go to its third commercial break. When the show comes back from the third commercial break, Fallon brings out the second celebrity guest of the evening and interviews them. The first guest remains there and takes part in the second celebrity interview. After the second interview ends, the show goes to its fourth and final commercial break. When the final commercial break is over, some kind of performance will happen. This is most often a musical performance by a guest band. Sometimes it is a performance by a comedian, and rarely a celebrity chef will appear to give a cooking performance. As soon as the performance is over, Fallon thanks the performer and bids goodnight to the audience. The credits roll and Fallon runs out the building through the crowd, giving them high fives along the way. The show is known for its use of music and social media. Many of the most famous musicians in the world have appeared on the show. Fallon often performs bits in which he plays a guitar and sings to comedic affect. The show also often incorporates social media clips, and does a lot of promotion through social media as well.
