Fallon departed from the network's Late Night on Feb. 7, 2014, after five years as host, and is now the host of The Tonight Show. Rivers appeared on the show after 49 years earlier to the day, the veteran comedian had made her first appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" in that very studio, and had not appeared on "Tonight" since 1987, when she was banned by Carson after jumping to Fox to host her own short-lived show.
