The U.S. version (and original) of the show won't arrive on NBC until January 2022, but one episode has premiered.

Several of his sequences come directly from the 

Tonight Show


And TF1 will be the first channel in the world to adapt it abroad.

Humorous musical events

In principle, two teams of two personalities compete in musical events such as karaoke and blind tests, revisited with humor.

One of the tests is for example to sing the words of a song to the tune of another.

But also sing a love song by offering a country version, or make you guess a song by playing it with an improbable musical instrument.

TF1 will work directly with Jimmy Fallon's teams to develop the French adaptation.

It will most likely be prime time shows shot in January and aired in the months that follow, according to

Le Figaro


The choice of the French Jimmy Fallon has not yet been decided.
