It was the final night of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno after 22 years of a highly successful late night show that has been around us for as long as we can remember. But all things must end, and such was the case for this show, which is entering a whole new era as Jimmy Fallon takes the place in the newly debuted The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, (while Fallon´s show will be now hosted by Seth Meyers).
