Jay Leno Is Returning to 'Tonight' on Friday
Jay Leno is returning to Tonight.
The former host of the NBC late-night show will be back in its studio on Friday night for the first time since passing the baton to Jimmy Fallon, reports the Associated Press. (Though he made a cameo in Fallon's parody "House of Cue Cards" earlier this year, the upcoming episode will mark his first in-studio appearance as a guest.)
Fallon previously noted that he'd love to have Leno as a guest: "I told Jay, I gave him a round-trip ticket to New York. … The stage is his, so whenever he wants, he's got a stage."
Lucy Liu and Kevin Delaney also will appear on the Tonight episode on Friday.
