  • Jimmy Fallon might have signed off Late Night Friday, but before you break out the tissues, don't forget he'll be back on TV in a week. Nevertheless, his final episode was a fun, sentimental affair.
    "I can't believe it. This is it! It's our last episode of Late Night," Fallon's final opening monologue began. "You know, I'm really going to miss being on TV at 12:37. I'll especially miss the battle for late-night ratings with my fierce rivals - Craig Ferguson and a veggie chopper infomercial."

    That veggie chopper will continue to face stiff competition starting Feb. 24, when Seth Meyers takes over Late Night (Fallon begins The Tonight Show on Feb. 17).
    And of course, Fallon couldn't resist getting in a few digs about the Sochi Olympics opening ceremony, which had just concluded. "There was a massive fireworks display - and that was just when someone tried to plug in a hairdryer at the hotel," Fallon joked, adding in a Russian accent: "Is not made for normal plug. It is eight-prong plug we use to electrocute and torture people."
    For his final Late Night interview, Fallon welcomed fellow Saturday Night Live alum Andy Samberg. The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star decided to turn the tables on the host and ask Fallon questions.
    Fallon also called on some advice for his new Tonight gig from some of his celebrity friends.

    "You get a lot more ratings if you wear less clothes," Miley Cyrus suggested.
    "Jimmy, always remember to wear your pants," Will Forte countered.
    Fallon then welcomed special guests The Muppets on stage for a cover of The Band hit "The Weight."
