-They love you. We love you. -Feels good to be back, Jimmy. -I’m so happy that you’re here, and today is the day. -Today is the day. -I mean, this is …
-They love you. We love you.
-Feels good to be back, Jimmy. -I’m so happy that you’re here,
and today is the day. -Today is the day. -I mean, this is bizarre. So
you’re doing our show tonight. Then after our show,
you’re doing Seth. -Yep. Both of my uncles.
-And then — Yeah. And then right after that,
your show premiers. -I know, yes.
-The day is finally here. -Ugh! I know.
-I know, no, no, no, yeah. How’s it feeling?
Does it feel real? -I mean, obviously,
I’m so excited. It’s a huge, huge honor. I’m obviously a little nervous. I mean, because I care.
I care so much about this. But I’m just —
It’s a huge honor. -You tweeted about
something I saw. -Oh. Oh, no.
-Yeah. -Oh, no. -In 2011, May. -Double “oh, no.” -Yeah. You tweeted, “I want my own talk show.” -Yeah.
-Yeah. [ Audience “aww”s ] And then — Yeah.
[ Cheers and applause ] -Thank you. -You have it. -I know! That’s how I get things in life. I just tweet them. So, right — -And things just happen? -When this was brought
to my attention, I actually,
if I’m really honest, I don’t completely remember
tweeting this. -Really? -And I think it’s because
when I tweeted it in 2011, I was probably just like,
“Oh, it would be so great. This is probably not possible,” and I probably just
mindlessly tweeted it. And when this was brought
to my attention, I was like, “Ah,
the power of manifestation.” I’m telling you, the power
of manifestation, working hard, and visualizing.
-You will it — -And so when this was
brought to my attention, right after, I was like,
“I want seven Ferraris,” so stand by, I guess. -Give me one when you get that. What have you learned
now that you’re doing it, now you have a couple
already filmed, I mean, what are you learning on
this process going in? And what did you like, “Oh,
I didn’t know that was gonna –” -Yeah, I mean,
I come from the Internet. And so things are
a little bit different. You know, I shoot videos
with five people. And then I entered
this world of television, and there’s something called
Standards and Practices. Like, I can’t say
certain things. I’m like, “What?” There’s something called unions. [ Laughter ]
-Yeah. -And there’s also just so many
people that work on the show. -Yeah, you’re used to five
people, and now it’s — -Yeah, every day,
someone comes up to me and goes,
“I’m your script chauffeur –” Like, I don’t know.
Any job title they make up. -That’s not what —
-Advisor. But I’m just like, I am still learning
what everybody does. -Yeah.
-And it’s just blowing me away. There’s literally 100 people
working on my show. -And what is NBC
learning from you? -Oh. [ Clears throat ] Well. The learning curve
goes both ways. -Yeah.
-So I’m learning about unions and rules and laws, whatever. And they are learning about
a female late-night host, because —
[ Cheers and applause ] Because, you know, it was
suggested to me early on — I have 96 episodes,
and it was suggested to me — All the women in the audience,
please, can I get an “amen.” But it was suggested that —
-Amen! I didn’t even say it yet,
but thank you. It was suggested to me that I should do a single
fitting for all 96 outfits. Yeah. And obviously to me,
I’m like, “I’m sorry, what?” Because that would be
like a four-day fitting. -Yeah. -Also — And I love this one. I was told that there’s not
a budget for a manicure — I like to get my nails done — Because the other late-night
hosts don’t have one. [ Laughter ] -Why don’t I have one?
I want a mani-pedi. You’re changing the rules
for me, too. I’ll get free mani-pedis!
Let’s do it! -Because you and Seth
don’t get manicures, I’m not allowed
to get a manicure. [ Laughter ]
-Come on. That’s bizarre. I love it. [ Laughter ]
It’s those things I love. You wouldn’t even think
to ask for that. -I was also told
I have 15 minutes between episode one and two
to change. I was like,
“It takes me 20 minutes to get my Spanx on and off. I don’t know how you go
15 minutes for me to change.” Are you kidding me? -Spanx.
-No. -I want to show your set. -Yes!
-I love it. It’s colorful. It’s beautiful. -Yes. Mm-hmm. -Yeah. Look at that. [ Audience “ooh”s ]
-Yes! -Love it. It’s so good.
-Thank you. -And then,
if you look on the desk, we zoomed in, but you have
photos on the desk. And I was like,
“What are these photos of?” I thought one was of me, one was of, you know,
when our friendship began. -We couldn’t afford
the license for you, but I did put
the two loves of my life, which is my dog, Scarbro — He’s perfect —
and French fries. [ Cheers and applause ] -We keep it real. We keep it real.
-You guys keep it real, yeah. -We keep it real. -I know your show,
it’s at 1:35 a.m. So, all my fans
watching our show, I love this person.
Please watch her show. Set your DVRs.
-Thank you. Thank you. -Set your DVRs.
Go to Menu right now and just see who’s a little bit
later in the evening and press Record and just start to get to know
your new late-night friend.
