Reading Rainbow was a childhood staple for many generations. I mean, who wouldn’t be able to break into the Reading Rainbow theme song at any given moment?
Jimmy Fallon sure can – and when LeVar Burton dropped by Late Night last night, we found out just how big of a Reading Rainbow fan Jimmy actually is. We’ve said before that one of the most charming things about Jimmy is that he not only really enjoys his job, but he is a genuine fan of the people he gets to interview. Check out what happened last night when Burton came by the show — hint: it includes singing.
Burton was on the show to promote his return to TV with the new TNT series Perception, also starring Eric McCormack and Rachel Leigh Cook. The series premieres Monday, July 9 at 10/9c on TNT.
