In 2009, Jimmy Fallon, former cast member on Saturday Night Live, was appointed as the third host of the Late Night show by Lorne Michaels, the executive producer at the time. Much of his commercial success as the show’s host comes from his incorporation of the internet into his show, which he does much more frequently than any other host before him. His show is more than informative—it’s entertaining and up-to-date with the newest news and the most recent current events. The show found its footing under Fallon’s leadership. According to former Saturday Night Live cast mate Tina Fey, the show established itself as “an uncommonly warm, welcoming show.” The New York complimented Fallon’s good humor and said, “In the relative safety of his 12:35 a.m. time slot, Fallon has been cultivating a distinct, and refreshing, strain of humor: the comedy of unabashed celebration.”

The premiere episode under Jimmy Fallon received mixed but generally positive critical reviews. The New York Times ’​s Alessandra Stanley referred to the show’s premiere as “more sweet than sassy,” calling Fallon “the grateful heir, the eager freshman, the class clown with top grades and a good heart, someone older viewers can embrace without fear of being mocked or overlooked.” Similarly, Tim Goodman of The Hollywood Reporter gave the show a positive assessment, but noted that Leno’s fan base may not be as quick to latch onto Fallon’s new brand of The Tonight Show and accept him.

Entertainment Weekly summarized the show’s inaugural year, stating “In his first year as host of The Tonight Show, [Fallon] turned the revered late-night franchise into the hottest party in town, a celebrity playpen full of games, music, surprise guests, and good vibes all around.”
