[ # ] Billy Crystal will be Jay Leno’s final guest on The Tonight Show!
January 19th, 2014 under Billy Crystal, Jay Leno


We are less than a month away from Jay Leno saying goodbye to The Tonight Show and today at the NBC TCA Winter Press Day NBC’s Chairman, Bob Greenblatt, announced who his final guest will be. On May 25, 1992, Billy Crystal helped to launch the show as the first guest, so it is only appropriate that he will be the one to close it out. Also joining him on Thursday February 6th, is Garth Brooks and I hope he serenades Leno just like Bette Midler did to Johnny Carson during his final appearance as a host of The Tonight Show.
NBC also announced today who will be on the show that final week. On Monday February 3rd, Leno will pass the baton over to Jimmy Fallon, and Betty White will make her 19th appearance on the show. The next night, Matthew McConaughey and NBA legend Charles Barkley, who makes his 24th visit to the show, are guests and Lyle Lovett will perform, tying the most performances by any singer on the talk show. On Wednesday, Sandra Bullock and Blake Shelton (which should make his mom very proud) will talk to Jay one final time. Finally, on Thursday, Jay Leno bids farewell to his home of 22 years minus a few months.
Not a bad final week for a man who has entertained us for almost a quarter of a century.

UPDATE: Jimmy Fallon’s first guest for The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on February 17th will be Will Smith and the first musical guest will be U2!!!

UPDATE 2: Seth Meyers first on Late Night with Seth Meyers will be Amy Poehler, so look out for it on February 24th.
