From engaging in "Slow Jam News" segments with President Obama to sharing the stage with artists like Bruce Springsteen. He even engages in lip sync battles with Paul Rudd. Creates parodies of celebrities and iconic moments from pop culture.
In 2014 Jimmy Fallon took over as the host of "The Tonight Show," a standing NBC late night talk show. Pentagram was responsible for revamping the show's identity by updating the Tonight Show" crescent moon logo to feature a moon. This change signified Jimmy's perspective on the program, which had relocated back to New York after over four decades, in Los Angeles.
Circular Emblem Of The Show
Throughout its history the crescent moon has been a part of "The Tonight Show" logo. It originated during Johnny Carson's thirty year tenure (1962 1992) continued through Jay Leno's years (1992 2009 2010 2014) and even remained during Conan O'Briens interlude (2009 2010). With Jimmy taking charge the designers felt it was time to give prominence to the moon by placing it front and center.
Thus the moon takes on the form of a logo resulting in a circular emblem that can be utilized as both a photograph and a flat graphic.
The designers were extremely excited to collaborate with Fallon and his team more as they had previously created the logo for "Late Night, with Jimmy Fallon." Recognizing the role the logo would play in promoting the show to its premiere Jimmy actively participated in its creation.
He Dominated The Show Like No Other
Since March 2014 it has been a month since Jimmy Fallon took over as the host of The Tonight Show replacing Jay Leno. Surprisingly he has exceeded NBCs expectations by maintaining the shows number one position, in late night US television and establishing dominance online.
During the week of March 3 in the year (the recent ratings available) Fallon's Tonight Show attracted an impressive 4.537 million viewers surpassing his broadcast late night rivals Jimmy Kimmel Live (2.744 million) and Late Show with David Letterman (2.761 million). Furthermore in the adults 18-49 demographic targeted by advertisers, Fallon (1.34) outperformed both Kimmel (0.73) and Letterman (0.56) combined—an increase of 43% compared to Jay Leno's rating this season on Tonight (0.94) before stepping down on February 6.
Fallons success has also contributed to bringing down The Tonight Show's age to 52.7 from Leno's average of 58.4 a year, an impressive accomplishment indeed! For comparison, Kimmel's show appeals to an audience, with an age of 56.2 while Letterman attracts viewers with an age of 59.2.
However despite Fallon's success in maintaining Tonight's ratings and attracting a younger audience, his greatest accomplishment in his first month is evident online. For the time there has been a significant surge in people watching and sharing clips from The Tonight Show. In fact all of Fallons 10 watched clips on YouTube from February 17th (the day of his debut on The Tonight Show) to March 15th have amassed over 2 million views each. This stands in contrast to Lenos tenure, where only five of his Tonight Show clips managed to surpass the 1 million views mark on YouTube.
