Jimmy Fallon's ill-timed joke on 'Tonight Show' Published: February 4, 2014

Monday night on "The Tonight Show," soon-to-be host Jimmy Fallon sat down with Jay Leno for the final time. The interview seemed to be going well between the two comedians.

Fallon even brought out his signature bit from "Late Night," Thank You Notes, according to Yahoo TV.

But, as "The Tonight Show" band began to play the bit's theme music, Fallon paused to ask the band if they'd be available in two weeks. Was it a backhanded compliment or an ill-timed jab at the band's future unemployment? Whatever it was, Leno seemed put off by it.
