The Wrap


Jimmy Fallon dropped by “NBC Nightly News” for one of his last interviews before officially debuting as the new host of NBC’s “Tonight Show” on Monday at 6:30 p.m. ET.

The interview will air Monday night and apparently Fallon had a big announcement for the program’s anchor, Brian Williams.

Fallon created videos of Williams rapping – spliced together from the anchor’s own words during news broadcasts. The videos, as you would expect, were very popular and went viral.

The flattered journalist said that his social team still sees people who are just discovering the rap mashup videos every day.
