Leno rattles Fallon, makes awkward appearance on ‘The Tonight Show’

Jay Leno returned to his old stomping grounds Friday, making a somewhat awkward appearance on the “The Tonight Show,” now hosted by comedian Jimmy Fallon.

Except it wasn’t exactly his old stomping grounds, now that the show is shot in New York City, instead of Burbank, Calif., where Leno hosted the program for over 20 years.

Leno was on to talk about his new television show on CNBC tentatively titled “Jay Leno’s Garage,” which will focus “on the car collector’s market, including best investments and valuations in the space,” according to the network.

Fallon appeared nervous, and wasted little time asking, “How am I doing?”

Leno jokingly avoided the question by talking about the weather, but he never did offer an assessment of how his replacement is doing. The comedians made a concerted effort to come across as best buds, but they seemed to come up a little short in pulling it off.
