"Tonight Show" brings back live studio audience

Running onstage from The Tonight Show’s signature blue curtain, Fallon sported a full suit and tie (he’s been increasingly dressing up after progressing from casual, at-home shows to the 6A set-up) and greeted his crowd of socially-distanced guests.

Footage showed small groups of masked individuals in the audience, and Fallon and guest Andy Cohen later said the audience was just 58 people.

“I’ve never been so excited to do a show for 58 people in my entire life,” Fallon joked. “After last year, this is like performing at a sold-out Madison Square Garden.”
