Jimmy Fallon lamented the demise of the TV theme song and decided to revive it with the help of Jesse Frederick, composer for shows like Family Matters and Full House on ABC’s TGIF (Thank God It’s Friday) programming. Frederick composed a Tonight Show theme song featuring Fallon and The Roots band doing the obligatory mugging for camera during their credits. Pianist James Poyser poses alongside himself parodying Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who shared the role of Michelle on Full House.
Fallon remembered his favorite theme songs with guest Pharrell Williams, who sang a few bars of Knight Rider and showed off his best sitcom pose. Perhaps he can make a cameo in the recently revived Fuller House.
