Jimmy Fallon Returns to 'Tonight Show' With Tearful Tribute to Late Mother

Working Joe Jimmy Fallon was seen heading back to work on The Tonight Show following a week long hiatus after the passing of his mom Gloria on November 4

Jimmy Fallon returned to "The Tonight Show" Monday, a little over a week since his mother Gloria died, and one of his first orders of business was to pay her an emotional tribute.

Immediately following the death of his mother, NBC put out a statement extending its "deepest condolences to Jimmy and all his family at this time of enormous loss".

While holding back tears, Fallon recalled how he and his mother would squeeze each other's hand and say, "I love you".

"The Tonight Show" had canceled its episode November 3, following reports of a family matter.

As if his opening wasn't devastating enough, Taylor Swift was the episode's surprise musical guest, bringing her acoustic new song New Year's Day - with nakedly sad lyrics about love and loss - to the Tonight Show stage. Upon reflection for his mother, he said, "Mom, I'll never stop trying to make you laugh".
