Ever since Jimmy Fallon took over The Tonight Show, there’s been a steady stream of shareable videos to watch in the morning. And last night’s drum battle between Will Ferrell and the Chili Peppers' Chad Smith was hilarious, a long time coming, and raised money for charity. This is a traditional drum-off.
Ew! Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Jimmy Fallon in teen-girly dresses is not ew. It's funny! Jimmy Fallon brought back his "Ew" segment on The Tonight Show this week and Neighbors stars Seth Rogen and Zac Efron joined him for the funny sketch. While Rogen went full beard for his role, Efron really sold the teen girl thing surprisingly well.
Who better to revisit the poetry that was Boy Meets World than Samuel L. Jackson? Because... well, things sound awesome when Samuel L. Jackson says them. Jackson visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and took the stage to perform a slam poem about the beloved 90s sitcom Boy Meets World.
It's one thing to do a funny celebrity impersonation. It's another to do that impersonation to that celebrity's face. Jimmy Fallon is mastering that art on The Tonight Show, having previously engaged in a bit of impression-riffing with Jerry Seinfeld, and more recently showing off his Cosby impersonation to comedy legend Bill Cosby himself. As you can see in the clip above, Cosby is nonplussed.
You know what’s better than a perfectly executed late night sketch? One that goes sort of akimbo and ultimately fails in the most hilarious of manners. And all of that is only made better when the folks involved are Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon. The duo attempted to “flip lips” — fairly self-explanatory, right? — in order for Fey to interview herself, only what transpired was a botched sing-a-long with a bevy of lip licking. Fail!
The thing about lip-syncing is, from a spectator's perspective, it's pretty pointless unless the lip-syncer is willing to put everything they have into their performance. And it's really for that reason that "Lip Sync Battle" works so well for Jimmy Fallon. It worked well on Late Night when he did it with Joseph Gordon Levitt and Stephen Merchant,
Jerry Seinfeld's stand-up act was often incorporated into the plot of an episode of Seinfeld. He'd make jokes about something that bugged him during a stand-up segment of the episode, and sure enough, that factored into the plot. So it's not surprising that his stand-up act during last night's episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon would be brimming with jokes perfectly adaptable for a modern-day Seinfeld episode. If only, right?
Can you believe that there were some people who never thought Jimmy Fallon would be the host of The Tonight Show? This is the angle Fallon used during last night's series premiere to parade a line of celebrities out onto the stage. Among those who showed up to hand Fallon the hundred dollars they owed him for losing that bet were Robert De Niro, Tina Fey, Joe Namath, Rudy Giuliani, Tracy Morgan, Joan Rivers, Kim Kardashian, Seth Rogen, Lindsay Lohan, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mike Tyson
This is going to hurt and I'm sorry to be so blunt, but: Jay Leno, this is how you host The Tonight Show in 2014. Jimmy Fallon kicked off his tenure on the NBC late night stalwart with a bright, brassy, optimistic bang — and a Spike Lee joint to boot. Cool, contemporary, and yet somehow still classic? We're more than on board for this late-night reboot.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon made its grand debut tonight, with host Jimmy Fallon bringing a fan-favorite segment to the late night talk show. Fallon celebrated the "Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing" following his opening monologue tonight, and enlisted the help of Will Smith for the nearly three-minute segment, which you can watch above.
Are you ready for The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon? The newest edition of the long-running late night talk show series premieres tonight and in anticipation of the event, we have the updated list of guests, which includes next week's line-up. Denzel Washington, Reese Witherspoon, Drew Barrymore and Mike Tyson are lined up for Week 2.
Jimmy Fallon’s first week as the host of The Tonight Show will play host to a bevy of impressive guests during his premiere week run hosting the NBC late night series. And with some of his close friends and favorite guests on track to appear, there may just be a few tricks up his sleeve to make the introduction to the Fallon era of the show more memorable. And there might just even be another "History of Rap" in our future.
The Olympics are really popular. Despite the East Coast being nine hours behind Sochi and not getting to watch the events live, plenty of eyeballs will be fixated on NBC over the coming weeks. With those extra viewers in mind, the network smartly decided to let longtime Tonight Show host Jay Leno take his final bow the night before the closing ceremonies. That final bow took place last night, and not surprisingly, it proved really popular.
While Jay Leno was saying goodbye to his viewers (again), last night Conan O'Brien was doing a very special zombie-focused episode in anticipation of AMC's The Walking Dead returning this Sunday. But he did address The Tonight Show vaguely but humorously during his monologue, when talking about the start of the Winter Olympics.
Jay Leno say goodbye to The Tonight Show last night in a final episode that was full of laughs, tears and music. Among the segments was a heartfelt speech given from his desk near the end of the episode, in which he said his time on The Tonight Show was "the greatest 22 years of my life."
