Jimmy Fallon Returns to 'Tonight Show' With Tearful Tribute to Late Mother

Jimmy Fallon Returns to 'Tonight Show' With Tearful Tribute to Late Mother

"We all were. The story about his mom squeezing his hand 3 times to say 'I love you" when he was a kid, and then him squeezing her hand in the hospital - he hadn't told any of us that story. This led to the "Tonight Show" canceling all of last week's scheduled shows and replacing them with reruns. "She was such a fan of the show and everything I did". "Whatever you think of Taylor, she did something handsome for Jimmy and our show today, and we're forever grateful".

Fallon, who was visibly shaken by the personal loss called his mother the "best audience" who he always tried to make laugh. She died on November 4 with Fallon at her bedside along with other family members.

DiCenzo also said production edited out a minute of the show to leave room for Fallon high-fiving members of the audience, because that was his mother's favorite part.

"I feel so grateful to be able to do this every single night and I'm very appreciative of all the support from all of you that my family received over the past week", he continued.

Fernando Torres Reportedly Eyeing Premier League Return
Newcastle will return to premier league action when they take on Manchester United away from home after the worldwide break. There's no reversing the ageing process, and Torres seems to have suffered from the inexorable march of time more than most.

The host thanked viewers for the well-wishes over the past few weeks, and vowed to "work really hard to bring some light and some laughter into the world". Thank you to Taylor, the Roots, [Steve Higgins], our whole staff and crew, and to all the FalPals, fans, and everyone who reached out to and supported Jimmy and his family.

Fallon ended his opening segment with a message for his late mother.

"Mom, I will never stop trying to make you laugh", Fallon concluded.

Truly, an emotional and heartfelt farewell to an incredible person.
