Jimmy Fallon's First Night -- How'd He Do!?

Jimmy Fallon's First Night -- How'd He Do!?

Jimmy Fallon premiered his late night talk show host on Monday, interviewing Robert De Niro and Justin Timberlake (he impersonated John Mayer).

The Roots jammed all night as Jimmy‘s house band and rocker Van Morrison was the musical guest for the evening.

EW said, “[Jimmy] did an ultra-ordinary monologue — one liners about President Obama and the deficit that sounded like material Jay Leno‘s writers had faxed over from L.A.”

THR added, “He tried too hard, stumbled over his punchlines and struggled to make Robert De Niro seem interesting.”

After the show taped, Jimmy expressed how overjoyed and relieved he was. He blogged, “1st show done. I was a bit nervous. But overall really happy. Phew!”
