His voice choked with emotion, Jay Leno said "the first year of this show I lost my mom. The second year I lost my dad. Then my brother died. And after that I was pretty much out of family. And the folks here became my family."
Later he added: "I'm also proud to say this is a union show. I have never worked with more professional people in my life." Leno quoted Johnny Carson to end his final show, then threw over to Garth Brooks.
"The Tonight Show," as you probably know is moving from Burbank to New York. Jimmy Fallon is the new host. There's talk of some getting jobs on the new show, but most likely won't. Good gig for 22 years.
