"Late Night with Jimmy Fallon"

"Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" makes its broadcast debut on March 2, as "Saturday Night Live" alum Jimmy Fallon becomes the third host of the NBC comedy-talk franchise. The show will serve as a platform for comedy, music and A-list talent out of NBC's Rockefeller Center Studio 6B.

Fallon launched his "Late Night" video blog (or "vlog") December 8, giving viewers behind-the-scenes access to his preparation for the show's official launch at www.latenightwithjimmyfallon.com. The vlog posts each weeknight at 12:30 a.m. ET.

In his first vlog, Fallon introduced his new house band - the critically acclaimed Grammy winning hip-hop band The Roots. Named one of the 20 greatest live acts in the world by Rolling Stone, The Roots will bring their eclectic hip-hop sound to the new "Late Night."

Since debuting online, Fallon also has introduced his studio announcer, shown off scale models of the new "Late Night" set, taken viewers backstage at some of his standup appearances, answered viewer questions in his weekly "Ask Jimmy" segment and introduced them to his family in upstate New York. In addition, the vlogs have featured guest appearances from current "SNL" stars Fred Armisen (testing Fallon's interview skills while posing as a bad guest) and Will Forte (who offered to compose the show's theme song).

Fallon first garnered attention in 1998 when he joined the cast of "Saturday Night Live" and quickly became an audience favorite for his impressions of actors and musicians as well as creating many memorable recurring characters. In 2000, he became co-anchor of the popular segment "Weekend Update" alongside Tina Fey. Fallon went on to appear in the Emmy Award-winning miniseries "Band of Brothers" and made his feature-film debut in "Almost Famous." He also had starring roles in "Taxi" and "Fever Pitch."

Lorne Michaels, Emmy Award-winning creator of "Saturday Night Live," is "Late Night's" executive producer. Michael Shoemaker, also an Emmy Award winner, is the producer, bringing over 20 years of experience at "Saturday Night Live." Gavin Purcell, from G4's critically praised "Attack of the Show," serves as co-producer.
