U2, Timberlake, Obama to appear on new Fallon show

NEW YORK (AP) - Jimmy Fallon is premiering his new show with a bang.

NBC announced Monday that Will Smith will appear on the Feb. 17 debut of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon." U2 will perform.

Justin Timberlake will close out the week, which will also include appearances by first lady Michelle Obama, Will Ferrell, Bradley Cooper, Kristen Wiig and Jerry Seinfeld.

Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire and Tim McGraw will perform during the week.

The first four episodes of Fallon's new show will air at midnight following the Sochi Winter Olympics. Its regular time slot is 11:35 p.m. Eastern.

Fallon replaces Jay Leno, who hosted "The Tonight Show" for 22 years. "Saturday Night Live" alum Seth Meyers is Fallon's successor; his "Late Night" show debuts Feb. 24.

My memory of the "Tonight Show" goes back to Jack Parr. Leno did a great job, and even with NBC's nonsense, left more or less on his own terms. Hope Jimmy makes it work. I never liked Conan.

Maybe Jimmy will make it if he can stop laughing at his own jokes... not cool, Jimbo!

Jack Paar and Johnny Carson WERE the Tonight Show... Jay did better than anyone imagined...

the 4th J in line, we'll see... he shouldn't bring his Saturday Night Live mentality with him and he might do well.

Johnny Carson laughed at his own jokes. People just naturally resist change.

I do too, Johnny was the best. Don't like what we have now! Guess I will be listening to Randy Travis CD's instead of watching TV during that time the Tonight Show is on.

That's before President's had to go on TV, short of the "State of the Union", to be heard and seen for actually doing what the people voted them in to do...Barack has nothing better to do...he is not busy taking care of the people that put him in the seat...someone has their hands up his ars ...go to bed people...you will need your sleep...worker bees!

Johnny was very good, however, Steve Allen was the best.

Remeber when the show was in NY? It was always funny when Johnny would mention Dr. Frank Field and talk about the NBC Commisary.
