Leno's final show as host will feature both Crystal and music from country superstar Garth Brooks. Crystal visited Leno on the host's first night at the helm of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on May 25, 1992.

Fallon will be followed by 91-year-old TV icon Betty White, who will be making her 19th appearance.

The guest schedule for the rest of the week includes:

Leno opened his first monologue as host "The Tonight Show" with a joke about Vice President Dan Quayle's concerns about "Murphy Brown's" title character becoming a single mother.

"The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" has never strayed from its tradition of booking the top celebrities, musicians, politicians and newsmakers, keeping its audience on the cutting edge of pop culture and current events. In March 2009, the show made history when it hosted the President Barack Obama, who remains the only sitting president to appear on late-night television.

Leno took his place behind the "Tonight Show" desk in May 1992 and has consistently ranked #1 among the broadcast networks in the time slot since 1995. Leno has won his last 71 consecutive quarters versus CBS's "Late Show" in total viewers, dating back to the third quarter of 1995, and has won 69 of his last 70 quarters in viewers 18-49. In the fourth quarter of 2013, "Tonight" reported its biggest adult 18-49 audience (1.1 million viewers) and biggest overall audience (3.8 million viewers) in three years and was up versus one year ago in every key ratings category.

"The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" is from Big Dog Productions in association with Universal Television. Debbie Vickers is the executive producer.
