Jimmy Fallon takes 'Tonight' to Orlando this week

NEW YORK (AP) — Jimmy Fallon is visiting the Sunshine State for his first TV trip since taking over "The Tonight Show."

The NBC show originates this week from the Universal Orlando Resort, where Fallon and company will tape editions to air this Monday through Thursday.

Guests include Jennifer Lopez and Keenen Ivory Wayans on Monday, while Jimmy Buffett and Kevin Hart are scheduled for Tuesday. Rosario Dawson joins Fallon on Wednesday, with George Lopez dropping by on Thursday.

This Florida trip is the first week of remote tapings since Fallon took over the "Tonight Show" mantle from Jay Leno in February. With Fallon's ascension to the host job, "Tonight" reclaimed New York as its home after decades based in Los Angeles.
