A nervous-looking Jimmy Fallon took to the NBC Tonight Show stage Monday night, but quickly warmed up with the help of family and some famous friends.
"I really don't know how I got here," Fallon, 39, said during a sentimental opening monologue for his first night at the helm of the legendary show.
"I remember asking my parents to stay up late to watch Johnny Carson," said Fallon, whose mom and dad waved and blew kisses from the audience. "I can just think there's some kid asking their parents to stay up to watch me."
After introducing himself to the 240-person audience, the former SNL cast member and Late Show host, backed by his house band The Roots, gave a shout-out to wife Nancy Juvonen and infant daughter Winnie, who were backstage, before warning the audience, "I'll make fun of everybody on this show."
