Jimmy Fallon got some sage advice from the trio of experts during Wednesday’s Late Night.
Full House alums Bob Saget, John Stamos and Dave Coulier appeared on the show to comfort a pajama-wearing Fallon, who was in a bedroom straight out of the ’90s family sitcom. The little guy was nervous about taking the big job at The Tonight Show and needed some comforting from his dad (Saget) and two uncles.
There was plenty of pandering to Full House fans, with an appearance from Mr. Woodchuck, a reference to Danny Tanner’s job (“I host a talk show too. You’ve probably heard of it. Wake Up San Francisco,” said Saget) and even Coulier telling Stamos to “Cut. It. Out.”
The trio of men assured Fallon hosting The Tonight Show would be a big honor.
“You’re going to be the host of The Tonight Show on NBC. Honey, no one can ever take that way from you,” Saget said. Added Stamos: “Well, maybe Jay Leno.”
Last year, Stamos reunited his fictional Full House band, Uncle Jesse & the Rippers, to play a medley of their hits. Saget was in the audience for the buzzed-about performance. And Full House fans, this won’t be the last you see of Saget, Stamos and Coulier together. They are reuniting for a Super Bowl commercial for Dannon’s Oikos Greek yogurt.
Fallon is bringing The Tonight Show back to New York City on Feb. 17 with first guests Will Smith and U2.
