Fallon Agrees to Bring "Tonight Show" to Chicago If Students Get Reading

Douglas Gorenstein/NBC(NEW YORK) -- During an interview on Tuesday's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel threw down the gauntlet, and challenged Chicago public school students to read 2.4 million books this summer.

Emanuel asked Fallon if he'd bring The Tonight Show to the Windy City for the first time since 1998 if Chicago's students accomplished that literary feat.

Fallon agreed, continuing a tradition of challenges between the pair: Emanuel's appearance on the show was the payoff of a charity pledge Fallon participated in back in February, when he took part in Chicago's Polar Plunge into Lake Michigan.
