Update: Monday’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” featured an unconventional episodic format. Instead of emanating from the show’s Rockefeller Center studio, it featured Jimmy Fallon and his guests appearing at various sites in New York. The entire episode, moreover, was filmed using a Galaxy S10+.

Superstar UFC fighter Conor McGregor appeared as the headline celebrity guest. He and Fallon had some fun at an Irish pub in New York City.

A video of the segment and photos from the taping follow.

Monday’s edition of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” includes a chat with Conor McGregor. The appearance marks the superstar UFC fighter’s first time appearing on the Fallon-hosted program.

In addition to McGregor, Monday’s episode features appearances by Michael Che, Rachel Feinstein and Frank Pellegrino, Jr.

The appealing guest list is not, however, the only special part of Monday’s episode.

Whereas typical “Tonight Show” broadcasts emanate from Studio 6B in Rockefeller Center, Monday’s episode was filmed at various locations throughout New York City. Said filming took place entirely on the new Samsung Galaxy S10+.

What is standard is the start time: the episode will, as always, begin at 11:35PM ET/PT on NBC.
