Thursday, February 7, 2014 Jay Leno passed the torch on to Jimmy Fallon, the new host of The Tonight Show host, as he said farewell after 22 years. “I don’t like goodbyes. NBC does, I don’t,” said Leno. He joked, “Well, tonight is our last show for real. I don’t need to get fired three times, I get the hint.”

In 1992, Billy Crystal was Leno’s first interview therefore it only seemed fitting that he be the last. “You were America’s nightlight. You helped us through good times and bad,” said Crystal, who sang “So Long Farewell” from the “Sound of Music.”
The goodbyes ranged from Sandra Bullock, Garth Brooks, Mark Wahlberg, Oprah and a great many other celebrities and legends.

In his farewell speech Leno said that many people have asked him why doesn’t he go to another network. After losing his mother, father and brother Leno said that he considers the NBC staff his family. Leno said he couldn’t imagine being with any other group of people.

Jimmy Fallon will take over The Tonight Show on February 17, 2014. In a taped he told Leno, “If a big story every breaks and you have your head full of jokes, you can always come home to the Tonight Show.”
