If you said Jimmy Fallon would never get to host The Tonight Show, you owe him a hundred bucks—and you’re not the only one.

Stars including Lady Gaga, Sarah Jessica Parker, Stephen Colbert, Mariah Carey, Lindsay Lohan, Tina Fey, Robert DeNiro and former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani lined up during Fallon’s first show as host on Monday to pay up for doubting he’d ever take over Jay Leno’s desk. Carey pulled her cash out of her bra, Parker pulled hers out of her shoe, and Colbert dumped a bucket of change on Fallon’s desk, then demanded a selfie.

Fallon also danced with Will Smith, and musical guest U2 performed on the roof in front of the New York skyline.

Talk About A Show That Will Forever be Jinxed and Doomed to Total Failure From the Very Start ..... Having the Severely Talentless, Porno Tape Slug, Ugly as a Stump kardashian on Your Very First Show ? ..... Fallon .... Good Grief Man ...... What on Earth Were You Thinking ???? ......That Your Total Audience Consists of Nothing More Than 10 & 15 Year Olds With The IQ's of a Kumquat ?? ...... You Have Not Only Lost Your Mind & Common Senses ...... You Have Also Lost Any Chance At All Of Making a Success of Your Show ...... and Mercifully & Most Likely ...... the Light Weight & Lame Fallon Will Have a Very Brief & Disastrous Stay as Host of the Formerly Watchable & Formerly Great Tonight Show ..

And one of the celebs was Joan Rivers, making her first Tonight Show appearance in 28 years.

@DelawareJack   Don't be shy.  Tell us how you really feel.  Don't concern yourself with standard capital usage and punctuation; it's probably too much bother to learn.

@Piacevole @DelawareJack   Your point is well taken. It was just a feeble attempt to allow the kumquats a way to better read the written word.  Fat chance of that I guess.

@DelawareJack @Piacevole  As a general rule, it is difficult to get "kumquats" to agree with you.  Adjusting your thinking to deal with "people" or perhaps "readers" often works better to facilitate communication.  Assuming, of course, that "communication" was your purpose..
