Tonight, NBC will air Jay Leno's historic farewell episode at 11:35/10:35c. Special guests Billy Crystal and Garth Brooks will join Jay as he celebrates his long and successful career on the show. Below, BWW celebrates the legendary comic's 22-year run as host of the iconic late night talk show.

Jimmy Fallon will take over the reins of TONIGHT and bring the show back to New York City beginning Monday, February 17th.

About the show:

"The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" features a nightly monologue (the longest in late night), news-making guests, and ongoing comedy segments, including "Headlines," "Jaywalking" and "Battle of Jaywalking All-Stars." The result is a unique and humorous look at the daily happenings in the news and in pop culture.

The program is also a proven barometer of political clout. In 2009, the show made history by being the first late-night show to host a sitting president when Jay Leno welcomed President Barack Obama as a guest.

"The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" is from Big Dog Productions in association with Universal Television. Debbie Vickers is the executive producer.
