Debut video: Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (and the Roots!)

So I take one day off, and what happens? The Tribune Co. declares bankruptcy, NBC gives away the 10 p.m. weeknight primetime slot to Jay Leno in a desperation move, and oh, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon debuts online. In just a couple of minutes, we see Fallon is moving into Studio 6B at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, that he'll debut on TV in late-night on March 2, 2009, and that indeed, the house band is The Roots, as we suggested here earlier. I'm also hearing that young joke-writer Anthony Jeselnik is on board helping Fallon, so that's promising news (and seeing Jeselnik around NYC more often gives credence to that talk). So. Here's the debut video:
