Jimmy Fallon carried on the Late Night host tradition, handing off the legendary plastic pickle to his successor Seth Meyers during Meyers’ appearance Tuesday on Late Night. The pickle was passed on to Fallon from Conan O’Brien when Fallon took over Late Night in 2009. O’Brien had received it from David Letterman‘s staff. Meyers takes over as host of Late Night on February 24 after Fallon moves to The Tonight Show.
