Jimmy Fallon isn’t short on saying thanks. During his “Thank You Notes” segment on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, he writes thank-yous to various celebrities (like Chris Brown for his “smash hit”) and objects (such as a gift bag for not being a boring plastic bag) and friends (as he recently said, “Thank you, friend who texts me a happy birthday or congratulations, that doesn’t do anything for my rep. Put that shiz on my Facebook wall where it counts!” Now the late-night host and Saturday Night Live alum is putting his thank-you’s where they count—in a book. Fallon reads tonight from Thank You Notes. We imagine it should be just like watching his show in person. Journalist Katherine Lanpher serves as host—oh, and even better, the Roots will be there, too.
