JIMMY FALLON brought the "Tonight Show" back to New York City for the first time in almost 42 years last night. He's in JACK PAAR'S old studio; the same studio that JOHNNY CARSON used before he brought the show to California in 1972.

 

He started off with the PERFECT introduction, saying, quote, "I'm Jimmy Fallon and I'll be your host . . . for now."  

 

He then proceeded to thank the previous "Tonight Show" hosts, which was interesting because he DID mention CONAN O'BRIEN . . . and got a laugh by saying JAY LENO'S name twice.

 

This was followed by Jimmy and his first guest WILL SMITH doing "The Evolution Of Hip-Hop Dancing".
