The Muppets Helped Jimmy Fallon Say Goodbye To ‘Late Night’ By Covering ‘The Weight’ By ‘The Band’

That’s a heck of a way to go out. Jimmy Fallon had The Muppets on for his final appearance on Late Night and I’d say it was a near perfect transition across the hall to The Tonight Show.

Where Jay Leno was sent off with (crocodile) tears and Billy Crystal musical numbers, Fallon stayed true to the sort of thing he’s always done and turned up the dial on pop culture.

I like the song choice, I always like seeing Gonzo in any capacity and I think the ending was pretty nice. Now the stage is set for a year of Fallon-led Tonight Show episodes before Jay Leno tries to come back, right?
