Beating Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to be named the number one late-night talk show, The Tonight Show and host Fallon expand the boundaries of late night to play to strengths and shock viewers with never-before-seen sketches and games.

Each night, viewers can tune in for an hour of unexpected comedy, celebrity guests, great music and more, with many of the moments of the show going viral within just hours of hitting the internet.

Chatting about the show's arrival in the UK, Colin McLeod, MD of Networks, UK and Emerging Markets at NBCUniversal International comments: "Take about a pop culture powerhouse! I'm delighted to be able to add the US's #1 late-night talk show to E! UK's nightly line-up.

"Jimmy promises a whole new level of entertainment for our E! audience with his A-list guest list and unique dose of fun, every single episode."

Guest appearances for the chat show through its first week airing in the UK are as follows:

  • Tuesday November 1 - Jay Leno Gabrielle Union and Big Sean
  • Wednesday November 2 - Whoopi Goldberg, Zoe Lister Jones and Lecrae
  • Thursday November 3 - Vince Vaughn, Patton Oswalt and Erykah Badu
  • Friday November 4 - Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel Maddow and Jim James

Fallon is truly one of the leading members of late-night television, having started his TV career all the way back in 1998 with Saturday Night Live. Quickly becoming a fan favourite, he became well-known for his celebrity impressions, sketches and a stint with Tina Fey as co-anchor of Weekend Update.

In 2009, he made his return to NBC to take over the Late Night show and hasn't looked back since, instead focusing on an array of megastar guests including Adele, Madonna and US President Barack Obama.
