Question by Curious College Student: What is the significance of the numbers The Roots say at the beginning of the Jimmy Fallon Show?
Everytime in the beginning of the show, they’ll shout out like three random numbers. Tonight, they shouted out “one, seven, one” or something..

Anyone know the significance of these numbers? Thanks.
