The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon has become one of the first late night shows to bring back a live studio audience since the pandemic broke out in the US in early 2020.
Clips of the show that aired last night showed a small group of people in the audience wearing face masks. And according to hosts, Fallon and Andy Cohen (visitor star) the number of people present in the crowd totaled 58.
“I’ve never been so eager to do a show for 58 people in all my years,” Fallon said. “After a year ago, this resembles performing at a sold-out Madison Square Garden.”
Fallon also stated that the crowd was comprised of individuals who had been vaccinated as well as medical care workers.
This is also going to be the new that the setup for the entire week. He also expressed gratitude toward them for their hard work during the pandemic.
