Jimmy Fallon's first week as the new Tonight Show host is expected to include at least one powerful political player.

First lady Michelle Obama plans to stop by Fallon's studio during a Feb. 20 visit to the New York City, reports The New York Post.

Fallon, who is moving The Tonight Show back to New York more than four decades after Johnny Carson took the show to California, debuts in his new slot Feb. 17.

Both Michelle Obama and President Obama appeared on Fallon's late, late night program.

Also reports the Post:

"We hear that before taping her segment for Fallon, the first lady will attend a DNC lunch at the Union Square loft of donor Maneesh Goyal.

"A source said the event will include 'about 20 guests' at the swanky apartment who will engage in an off-the-record conversation with Mrs. Obama. Seats are going for $10,000.

A "cool downtown crowd" is expected, our source said. But the guest list has not been finalized.
