Jimmy Fallon isn't the only one: Watch the 'SNL' cast break character -- VIDEO

Think Jimmy Fallon was the only Saturday Night Live cast member to break out into laughter during skits? Think again. Over the years, everyone from Will Ferrell to Adam Sandler to Kristen Wiig to Fred Armisen have cracked a smile or two. Does it ruin the illusion? Eh, for about a second. Frankly it’s just nice to see that comedians are humans too: Even they can’t always keep a straight face.

Check out this nifty little video which compiles some of the best scene corpsing from SNL‘s going-on-thirty-nine-years: READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Fallon announces daughter's name, acts like a cute new dad on 'Late Night' -- VIDEO

Someone has the new dad glow.

When an ecstatic Jimmy Fallon took the stage for his Late Night monologue last night, you could tell that he’s currently hanging out on cloud nine. The comedian — and future Tonight Show host –  welcomed a baby daughter yesterday with wife Nancy Juvonen Fallon. The birth was certainly a surprise as the pregnancy was under-the-radar for a celebrity, but it looks like Fallon isn’t keeping any more secrets. As he divulged last night, “Her name is Winnie Rose Fallon and she’s so cute.” READ FULL STORY

Have mercy! 'Full House' band Jesse and the Rippers will reunite on TV Friday

Like many a late ’80s/early ’90s rock band, Jesse and the Rippers faded into obscurity long ago. The group’s original frontman was dishonorably discharged from the band back in 1994 due to “commitment issues.” Though he moved on first by founding a new band called Hot Daddy and the Monkey Puppets, then by managing up-and-coming teen group Girl Talk, he could never quite recapture the spark of his “Forever” days.

Sources say that a 50-something Jesse Katsopolis can still be found in San Francisco, where he lives off his wife’s salary (she’s currently the head of programming at Channel 8 News) while struggling to keep the Smash Club open. Much of the couple’s funds are sucked up by their now-22-year-old twins Nicky and Alex, who have proved utterly unemployable. The whereabouts of the other Rippers have remained unknown… until now.

That’s because Jesse and the Rippers — a.k.a. John Stamos and a bunch of dudes whose names you wouldn’t recognize — are set to reunite this Friday, July 19 on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. People confirmed the news shortly after Stamos posted this mysterious video on his Instagram page:

Watch Brad Pitt and Jimmy Fallon try a yodel duet -- VIDEO

Sometimes, when you just need a break from work, it helps to just go to the top of your building and yodel. At least, that’s what Jimmy Fallon and Brad Pitt do.

In this delightful clip from Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Brad and Jimmy “chat” and then harmonize beautifully.

Bruce Jenner doth protest too much in awkward Jimmy Fallon interview -- VIDEO

Note to Bruce Jenner: Repeatedly insisting what a good sport you are isn’t, in fact, the most effective way to convey that you’re a good sport.

Jenner was Jimmy Fallon’s guest on Late Night yesterday — a move that may surprise anyone familiar with what happened between the two at last year’s Olympic Games. (The short version: Fallon made a few jokes about Jenner’s plastic surgery during an event; later, they ran into each other, and Jenner angrily asked Fallon to “stop saying sh– about my face.”)

The interview got off to a bad start when Jenner cheerily noted that Fallon had never sent him an apology — and things just got more uncomfortable from there. The reality star — and one-time World’s Greatest Athlete –  unconvincingly declared that, as a member of “the Kardashian group,” he’s basically immune to mockery, proclaimed that he’s never been shy about having work done — “I had it done on camera in our show!” — and, in an admittedly funny bit, whipped out a few dorky pictures of Fallon as payback.

Will Smith really wants you to remember that he used to be a rapper -- VIDEO

Remember when Men in Black 3 came out last year, and suddenly Will Smith just would not stop performing his old rap hits everywhere he went? (He kept doing it into the fall!)

Well, now that the Fresh Prince has another movie coming out — M. Night Shyamalan’s After Earth — he’s apparently doing the rap thing again. Witness, for example, Smith’s big Late Show entrance last night, which the CBS Orchestra thoughtfully underscored with the strains of “Summertime.” Once he recognized they were playing his song, the movie star couldn’t resist rapping along. And after he noticed that his mic wasn’t capturing his rhymes, Smith also couldn’t resist stealing one of the band’s microphones and starting his verse over from the beginning.

'Saturday Night Live' poll: Who was the best host of the year?

SNL-HOST-AWARD-banner.jpg

When it comes to hosting Saturday Night Live, there are degrees of greatness. Sure, there’s the Five-Timers Club, that posh and exclusive club that meets every year in Gstaad to anoint late-night kings, plot ways to blackmail Bill Murray into making Ghostbusters III, and otherwise control the comedy world — except for NBC’s primetime lineup. But you can sneak into the Five-Timers with one great show and four B- performances. No need for names, but it’s possible to get by on reputation and before you know it, you’re exchanging the club’s secret handshake with Lorne Michaels.

To be named Mr. Saturday Night (or Ms. Saturday Night, of course), on the other hand, requires something special. Everything has to go right on a certain night of live television. It’s the equivalent of Wilt Chamberlain scoring 100 points in a basketball game or Don Larsen’s World Series perfect game. On one given night, they were simply unstoppable, and no matter whether they become all-time greats or shooting stars of momentary brilliance, there is nothing quite like watching a performer rise to the occasion.

Last year, EW crowned Jimmy Fallon as the first-ever Mr. Saturday Night, an appropriate recipient not just because Fallon killed it during the show’s Christmas episode, but because of his long history with the late-night institution. This year, the competition to succeed him has been fierce, and during weekly online polls, voters have eliminated 15 hosts, leaving us with six finalists. Finale host Ben Affleck had the easiest path to the final, and his show will be freshest in voters’ minds. But he faces a murderer’s row of entertainers: Martin Short, Justin Timberlake, 2012 runner-up Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Seth MacFarlane, who was rescued from elimination in our recent second-chance vote.

Timberlake is the favorite to take the crown, judging by recent polls, but anything can happen on the Internet. Before you vote, though, ask yourself three questions:

1. Which host’s sketches were you still watching days or weeks after the episode originally aired?
2. Which host could join the cast tomorrow and hold his or her own, week-in and week-out?
3. Which host do you most want to see on Saturday Night Live again?

Click below to see the tale of the tape for all six finalists, and cast your vote for a Mr. or Mrs. Saturday Night we can all be proud of. READ FULL STORY

Adam Sandler's sage advice to Jay Leno: 'Go to Fox!' -- VIDEO

NBC’s coming late-night shakeup affects three-fourths of the the network’s post-11:30 p.m. programming. (Enjoy stability while it lasts, Last Call with Carson Daly.) Saturday Night Live has to find a new Weekend Update anchor… because Seth Meyers is moving to host Late Night… because Jimmy Fallon is moving to host The Tonight Show… because Jay Leno is getting forced out, just three years after NBC reinstated him as Tonight‘s host. Phew!

So while everyone else at the network is movin’ on up, what should Jay’s next move be?

His pal Adam Sandler — who stopped by last night to talk Grown Ups 2 The Streets — has a few ideas. Namely: “Don’t you think he should just take it easy, enjoy, breathe… maybe go to Fox, do a show at 11:00?” he asked Tonight‘s audience, to cheers and applause. Leno laughed off the suggestion genially, as is his wont — but you’ve got to wonder if he might consider it seriously come 2014.

Bradley Cooper and Jimmy Fallon play faceketball, jackets off -- VIDEO

While we all might be a little fearful of Bradley Cooper playing a sport that could damage that face, there’s no need to worry — no faces were harmed in the playing of this game. Jimmy Fallon introduced “faceketball” where both men wear basketball hoops on their heads and try to score on the other person’s. What we really learned during this game was that Fallon isn’t so great at shooting hoops. The game was supposed to go until one of them scored three, but after two, they stop.

John Krasinski lip syncs 'I'll Make Love to You.' This is not a dream. -- VIDEO

Your pretend boyfriend John Krasinski stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night and everyone fell in love with him a little more. Fallon and Krasinski decided to have a Lip Sync-Off, competing with songs like “Don’t Cry Out Loud,” “Teenage Dream,” and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” Expect plenty of exaggerated emotions, fake earpiece checks, a pretend microphone drop, and dramatic hand movements galore. The Roots loved it! Also, stay for the full 8 minutes, because Krasinski finally takes his jacket off for the last song. It really makes the whole thing.

Watch the video below. Who do you think won? Are you sort of loving Krasinski’s beard?: READ FULL STORY
