O’Brien debuts as host of NBC’s Tonight Show franchise. The inaugural episode’s cold open features the host running across the country from New York to Los Angeles to make it in time for his monologue. Filmed sketches include one where he drives his old Ford Taurus around the city and earns the envy of everyone. Andy Richter returns as both his sidekick and announcer. Will Ferrell appears as the show’s first guest, and is followed by a musical performance by Pearl Jam.
