"NBC asked me to host a late-night show, and I thought, 'What could go wrong?' Too soon?"

In a tribute to shows that have passed away this year, Jimmy Fallon says goodbye to 24, Law & Order and Lost as Elton John, Boyz II Men and Billie Joe Armstrong, respectively. He couldn't work Neil Young in there?

"Mel Gibson's been through a lot. Not as much as the Jews."
