AUSTIN (KXAN) – You might remember this moment from one year ago today. It was Jimmy Fallon’s first go as the host of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” He took a moment to thank the audience and people watching the show, thanking some of the previous “Tonight Show” hosts – making a joke, while running through the list, about Jay Leno being in there twice.

Fallon spoke about his wife Nancy and then-6-month-old daughter Winnie. He’s since had another daughter, born in 2014.

Fallon’s mother and father, Jim and Gloria Fallon, were in the audience, and he wasted no time in taking funny cracks at them.
