The promo video acknowledges Conan O'Brien, who briefly hosted the NBC late-night show, among other veterans namely Johnny Carson and Jay Leno.
NBC has released the first promo for "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon". The video promotes Jimmy Fallon's debut as the new host of the late-night show by featuring old footage featuring his predecessors.
Despite his short-lived stint on "Tonight Show", Conan O'Brien makes appearance in the promo among other previous hosts, including Steve Allen, Jack Paar and Johnny Carson, as well as Jay Leno, who is currently hosting the show. "This February, the tradition continues and a new era begins," so a narrator says.
Fallon will begin his "Tonight Show" hosting stint on February 17 at 11:35 P.M. ET/PT. He's taking the show from Los Angeles back to it home of New York. "Saturday Night Live" head writer Seth Meyers will take over the "Late Night" throne from Fallon on February 24.
