For the first time in more than 40 years, NBC's “Tonight Show” broadcast from New York City on Monday night with Jimmy Fallon at the helm, and TODAY got a little love from the comedian.
Fallon started the program with his signature monologue, in which he poked fun at Matt Lauer and Al Roker’s recent attempt at the double luge.
