(CNN) -- To thunderous applause and a Cheshire cat grin, Jimmy Fallon walked on to the stage at the NBC Studio in New York -- as the new host in the old home of the "Tonight Show." "I am Jimmy Fallon and I will be your host -- for now," he said. His first joke out of the way, he spent the next few minutes introducing himself to the audience -- his childhood, his family, his career. He was pretty subdued through it all.
