Michael Strahan stopped by last night's THE TONIGHT SHOW on NBC and described his life growing up and how he got his special nickname. Later, Strahan chatted about his first time hosting with Kelly Ripa and how he was asked to become a permanent host. Check out clips from the appearance below!

"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.
