Monday marks Jimmy Fallon’s big debut on “The Tonight Show,” and many celebrities are taking to Twitter to wish him well. Among those wishing Fallon good luck is his “Late Night” and “Tonight Show” predecessor, Conan O’Brien, who predicted the new host will “do great!”

As Gossip Cop previously reported, Fallon’s premiere brings “The Tonight Show” back to New York after 42 years, with Will Smith and U2 as the first guests. With the taping just hours away, the host himself took to Instagram to share his own excitement, writing:

February 17, 2014 This is it. We are starting a new chapter of the Tonight Show. I can’t even begin to describe what we are all feeling right now here at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, NYC. But – I know that we’ll never have this exact feeling ever again. By this time tomorrow we’ll no longer wonder what it would be like to do the Tonight Show. We can’t put that feeling – that moment back in the bottle. All we can do is try to make the best show that we can and make people happy. And we will. Here’s to the first of many. Fun.
