Jimmy Fallon will bring The Tonight Show back to Los Angeles next month for a week of late-night antics.

From Feb. 15 to 19, the former former SNL comedian will return to Universal Studios after a successful run last year. Guests lined up for the week include Will Ferrell, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera and Zach Galifianakis, with others to be announced later, according to a release. Whether you'll be tuning in the old school way on TV or (more than likely) watching the highlights online, you can also expect plenty of musical guests, games and sketches.
