Jimmy Fallon's “Tonight Show” by the Numbers: Toasting the Late-Night Host's 10th Anniversary

The 'Saturday Night Live' alum first took his seat behind the iconic desk on Feb. 17, 2014

"Welcome to The Tonight Show... I'm Jimmy Fallon and I'll be your host. For now."

That was the beginning of Jimmy Fallon's monologue during his first episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Feb. 17, 2014, exactly 10 years ago today.

The Saturday Night Live alum, 49, was grateful then — "My life has never been this cool," he told PEOPLE at the time. "Everything is so good right now that I feel beyond lucky." — and he's grateful now, celebrating the anniversary following Friday's taping with a champagne toast with his staff in the studio.

In honor of the milestone, PEOPLE is taking a look at The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon by the numbers.
