The clip features an archive clip tour of the late night show’s prior hosts (including a brief shot of short-lived Tonight host Conan O’Brien) and a narration pledging a “new era” when Fallon takes the reins from Jay Leno on Feb. 17.
For Leno, this will be his second time transitioning away from The Tonight Show. Leno briefly ceded the coveted hosting gig to Conan O’Brien in 2009 only to be reinstated by the network in March 2010. O’Brien, who took a $45 million payout from the network upon his exit, now hosts Conan on TBS.
In mid-December, NBC unveiled a new logo for the Fallon-hosted version of Tonight, which will be moving from Burbank to New York. NBC officially named Fallon the next host of the show last April. Saturday Night Live alum Seth Meyers will take over as host of Late Night on Feb. 24.
On Sunday, the network will air a two-hour retrospective special entitled, The Best of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
