Jimmy Fallon is bringing the Tonight Show back to New York where it was originally produced. To celebrate the return to the city, the latest promo recreates the iconic strut of Tony (John Travolta) in Saturday Night Fever complete with “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees. Fallon dons the entire disco outfit right down to the boogie shoes that put the pep in his step. Fortunately, announcer Steve Higgins stops him before anyone can see him making a fool out of himself.
The location isn’t the only throwback to the original show. The “new” title will use “starring” instead of “with” to introduce the host as was the convention until Jay Leno took over for Johnny Carson in 1992.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon premieres February 17.
