The Tonight Show made its return to New York City with a splashy opening sequence showcasing Grand Central Terminal, the Chrysler Building, Lincoln Center and Jimmy Fallons glamorous new studio at Rockefeller Centera fitting tribute to the place that helped foot the bill.
An unconventional 30 percent tax credit aimed at luring Tonight away from California after four decades is reportedly saving NBC more than $20 million a year.

All kinds of good things happen when you cut taxes. Increase taxes and everything turns to crap. Do you hear that Barry?
Yup; he’ll own that one.
As of the new Falloon era it’s a liberal show going to a liberal city.
Libs are welcome and anything conservative is NOT!
Am I surprised?
I miss Johnny Carson.
I’ve been seeing those ads promising no taxes for 10 years if you open a “new” businesses in NY . Makes me wonder, if I owned a donut shop in Utica, and somebody opens a new shop next door, get to skip taxes that I have to pay? How can I compete with that? And if I go out of business, how is anybody helped other that the new business owner?
Tax cuts should be across the board, not special breaks for the favored few.
Made the same argument about NY tax breaks just yesterday. But you have to wonder. Are there really no taxes? Or are they just deferred?
Hell, I miss Jay. At least Jay had a few good one liners in each monologue. I watched Fallon’s monologue for the first time since he took over last night, I didn’t hear anything funny at all. As for Fallon’s ass kissing of Obama...
We were highly disappointed to find, once inside, that Johnny took the day off and stuck us with Danny Thomas....nothing wrong with Danny Thomas, other than the fact that he was a crashing bore.
I’d like to see FOX broadcast carry Leno at 11:00 PM from Los Angeles. They would kill the other networks.
For the last 10+ years the librats were calling the Bush tax cuts something that we had to pay for.
How are these tax cuts any different? Will New York taxpayers have to pay for them?
Are they now actually saying that tax cuts are a GOOD thing??
It’s called “selective enforcement of the law,” and it’s only a crime when a Republican does it.
Tax cuts for the Rich ping, thanks Olog-hai.
and here i thought they were just trying to get back some talent....oh wait...
“I miss Johnny Carson.”
Me too. I haven’t really watched it since then.
There must have been an executive order and a stimulus package for this sycophant to be brought within helicopter range.
Hell, I miss Steve Allen. He was the best Tonight anchor ever.
Fallon not funny.
aaaand whasaaap with all the horny teenager screaming after each sentence??? Annnnnoing! Bye!
How long before Leno can start working on a competing station?
