Mayor Rahm Emanuel today called on Chicagoans to push Jimmy Fallon to bring “The Tonight Show” to Chicago following an on-air pledge the TV funnyman made to the mayor to do so if the city’s kids read more than 2.4 million books this summer.

“If you really want to know, I would just say go to #TonightShowChi and call on him to come,” Emanuel said today at an unrelated news conference.
