Jimmy Fallon is testing the livestream waters.

The Tonight Show shared Fallon’s opening monologue for Tuesday night’s show on Facebook Live, giving non-New York fans an inside look at how the show kicks off. A producer asked audience members questions to kill time before welcoming announcer Steve Higgins to the floor. Until Fallon ran out to The Roots’ theme, he alternated whispering and yelling the time left until cameras rolled.

Cue Fallon running out, as viewers at home see every night just past 11:30 p.m. Fallon relayed the topics du jour, including those related to president-elect Donald Trump. “On a lighter note, I saw that the Naked Cowboy was performing at Trump Tower yesterday, with tighty-whities,” he said. “Incidentally, The Tighty-Whities is also the nickname of Trump’s cabinet.”

Shortly after the live-stream, The Tonight Show removed the video from Facebook, so, if you missed it, you’ll have to tune in at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
