The Jimmy Fallon era began on the ``Tonight Show'' last night.

Fallon takes over as host, following NBC's decision to sack Jay Leno. Fallon noted at the top of the monologue that he's the host, ``for now.'' NBC also has moved the show back to New York City. Musical guest U2 performed atop the G.E. Building with the sun setting over Manhattan in the background.

I am a major Letterman fan but I think I'll give the former SNL star a chance...
