On Monday, television show host Jimmy Fallon shared an emotional message with “The Tonight Show” viewers after returning to the Rockefeller Center. The star has been hosting the talk show from home for a couple of months.
“The Tonight Show” has been hosted from Fallon’s home due to the social distancing safety guidelines that aimed to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus disease. However, on Monday, he was back at 30 Rockefeller Center.
His first virtual guests upon his return were actress Charlize Theron, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, and a performance by Little Big Town. However, before interviewing the pair, Fallon gave a touching monologue to his fans.
