Mark Ruffalo, Stephen Merchant play 'Musical Beers' on 'Tonight'

Last night, The Tonight Show launched a new game. Everyone, meet “Musical Beers”—the perfect crossover between beer pong and musical chairs. And yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like.

To kick off the new game, Jimmy Fallon invited guest Mark Ruffalo, along with Stephen Merchant, out for some very messy fun before very quickly knocking Merchant out of the competition. Yeah, things get competitive.

Key and Peele put their spin on 1980s aerobics videos

Leave it to Key & Peele to reveal what aerobics videos were really like in the 1980’s.

In a new sketch from the duo, they star as “Flash” and “Lightning” in a live taping of the 1987 Jazz Fit Championships—apparently a competition in which they try to outlast each other on the dance floor. Regardless, when Lightning gets some bad news about his family, things get real.

'Frozen' meets 'Breaking Bad' with 'Do You Want to Build a Meth Lab?'

Frozen-Breaking-Bad.jpg

Breaking Bad never really had a full theme song, and now we know why: It was simply waiting for Frozen to come along so that it could find and borrow the right melody. Thanks to the folks at Animeme, the perfect collaboration has finally materialized in the form of “Do You Want to Build a Meth Lab?”

The Disney-esque mash-up serves as a quick recap of the series, from the RV days to Gus’ demise and every fly in between. Sure, there are minor details (and Nazis) missing, but can you really fault a video that works in Jane’s overdose?

'Saturday Night Live' best host poll: Cheers to Woody Harrelson

Six episodes into the 40th anniversary year of Saturday Night Live, one thing is clear. Though the show itself might be slowly emerging from the oft-cited “transition year,” the institution still has meaning—especially to the guest hosts who initially visited in the show’s heyday. Thus far, three of the guests—Jim Carrey, Chris Rock, and Woody Harrelson—first hosted the show in the previous century. Two others, in addition to Rock, of course—Sarah Silverman and Bill Hader—are SNL alums. [Unconfirmed rumor: The show lobbied hard for Bill Murray to host the season premiere.] Conclusion is, SNL is working hard to get back to its roots.

The sad news is that we had to bid sayonara to one of our favorites during the first round of this season’s Mr. Saturday Night contest, in which we vote for the best host. READ FULL STORY

Mike-Colter.jpg

On The Good Wife, Mike Colter plays Lemond Bishop, the drug dealer/businessman/father that nobody dares to cross. But in real life, Colter is far less intimidating. Proof? He enjoys listening to classical musical before bed.

But just in case you need more proof, we sat Colter down for our Pop Culture Personality Test, where he talked about his love of Danica McKellar, his “library” of favorite movie sex scenes, and more.

Jennifer Lawrence and Stephen Colbert plan to fight crime together

At this point, Jennifer Lawrence knows how to work a talk show. She sang Christmas carols with Letterman, for goodness’ sake. But her appearance on The Colbert Report was less about what she said (or sang) and more about just having some fun with Stephen Colbert.

During the interview, Lawrence and Colbert decide to become vigilantes; they plan out her future downward spiral, which won’t involve crystal meth because it’s bad for the skin; and they get to the origin of her “J-Law” nickname.

And she loves it.

John Oliver appears as if from nowhere and hosts 'The Daily Show'

John Oliver has proven that he can host The Daily Show, but that doesn’t mean fans were expecting him to show up and take over last night’s show. And yet, when Jon Stewart decided he was a little uncomfortable hosting a show about his own film, Rosewater, he took out his Queen Elizabeth teapot, gave it a little rub, and out popped a British genie that looked a lot like John Oliver.

If you’re a company that’s struggling, with revenues down 36 percent from 2005 and a fourth CEO in the past three years, it’s time for a rebranding. Fortunately for Sears Canada, the new face of the company is a long-time employee… and his famous younger brother.

Peter Myers has worked for Sears Canada for 32 years, and he and his brother—Austin Powers himself—team up for an ad that puts a happy face on the fact that “Sears Canada has to demographically and psychographically alter the trajectory of its business model.”

Channing Tatum defeats Jimmy Fallon in an epic game of Box of Lies

Last night, not only did Jimmy Fallon decide to revisit Box of Lies, but he did it with Channing Tatum (who apparently loves a good E.T. stuffed animal).

Tatum, who’s making the rounds promoting his upcoming film Foxcatcher, sat down for one of Fallon’s most well-known games, and let’s just say the two of them had a lot of fun with it.
