“The guests just trust us,” the host said at the WGAE panel on Thursday night, with writer Gerard Bradford adding, “I think they know when they come on our show, we’re going to make them look good.”
“I think they know that it’s coming from love,” Fallon said in response to an audience question to that effect at a panel with his Tonight Show writers on Thursday. “We really love pop culture and we embrace it on our show. No one looks bad on our show and I think people trust us.”
