The 35-year-old comedian, who inherited NBC's "Late Night" franchise from ousted TV host Conan O'Brien, lampooned NBC for its handling of O'Brien's departure from the "Tonight Show."

"NBC asked me, the host of 'Late Night,' to come to Los Angeles to host a different show. What could possibly go wrong?" Fallon joked as cameras panned to O'Brien. "Too soon?" Fallon asked.
