Watch Jimmy Fallon's 'Breaking Bad' spoof, 'Joking Bad' -- VIDEO

Jimmy’s got work to do, bitch!

Just hours after the announcement of Breaking Bad‘s spin-off, Fallon uped the ante in the late night laughs department with “Joking Bad.”

In this 13-minute parody, Fallon has the role of Walter White down to a perfect science — rocking a bald cap, his signature green shirt, and even tighty-whities. With announcer Steve Higgins as Jesse, the two join forces scurrying up a plan to sell jokes on the black market to avoid an end to Fallon’s run on Late Night, which will come in six months. Head writer A.D. Miles joins in too, playing the role of Hank, with a couple of surprise cameo appearances from Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Bob Odenkirk, and even Jay Leno, whom Fallon will soon replace at The Tonight Show.

Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake create an evolution of end zone dances -- VIDEO

It’s a Late Night Touchdown!

Jimmy Fallon is quickly becoming the king of morning work day pick-me-ups. On Tuesday night’s Last Night with Jimmy Fallon, the former SNL-er created another evolution of dance video (he poked fun at mom dancing with the First Lady), this time parodying  football players’ end zone dances, clearly inspired by Judson Laipply’s original comedic stab at the celebratory move. In addition to Fallon’s fun-loving humor, there’s the x-factor of triple-threat dance partner Justin Timberlake. Decked in t-shirt jerseys,  the pair work out some amusing moves like the “Taking A Selfie,” the “Old-Timey Railroad Car,” the “Butt Wax On Wax Off,” and others, with especially creative naming conventions.

Watch them score (lots more fans) in the segment “The Evolution of End Zone Dancing” here: READ FULL STORY

Kanye performs 'Bound 2' on 'Late Night' -- VIDEO

“You can feel it in the building!” says a giddy Jimmy Fallon, grinning like he was the one who thought of that whole “worst twerk fail” thing.

The “it” in question is, of course, Kanye West’s very own je ne sais quoi. Last night on Late Night, Yeezus himself showed up for a previously unannounced appearance — enlisting The Roots, Charlie Wilson (not that one), a chorus of apple-cheeked children, and one major kilt to help him perform his new song “Bound 2″ live for the very first time. (Sample lyrics: “I know I got a bad reputation/Walking ’round, always mad reputation/Leave a pretty girl sad reputation/Start a fight club, Brad reputation.” Also some stuff about having sex on a sink and getting… something on the mink. Gross, Kanye.)

Aww: Jimmy Fallon brings back 'Puppy Predictor' for NFL opener

Well, this is the cutest thing you’re going to see today.

Last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, a fan asked Fallon if there was any way to predict who would win the NFL’s season opener between the Denver Broncos and the Baltimore Ravens. Fallon knew it was the perfect time to bring back The Puppy Predictor, where a bunch of cute puppies shed some light on which way sports games are going to go — when they’re done snuggling, of course.

After some talk with a nine-deep pile of pups (Seriously, your heart may burst just watching it!) the puppies scampered across the stage to one of two bowls of food. Whichever bowl (‘Broncos’ or ‘Ravens’) had more puppies at it would be declared the winner. It sounds crazy, of course, but the same system correctly predicted last season’s Super Bowl winner. Who cares if it’s accurate? It’s just really sweet to watch.

Jimmy Fallon will take on Walter White this September

After sending up Jersey Shore, Downton Abbey, and Game of Thrones — and transforming them into The Jersey Floor, Downton Sixbey, and Game of Desks, respectively — what’s left for Jimmy Fallon?

Oh, just a little show you may have heard a lot about yesterday… and last week… and the week before that as well. Hint: Think yellow hazmat suits, wire-framed glasses, and a badass joke-writer-slash-drug-manufacturer who goes by The One Who Knocks.

Still don’t get it? Take it away, Jimmy:

Jimmy Fallon and Robin Thicke perform 'Blurred Lines' on kiddie instruments -- VIDEO

Last night, on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Robin Thicke dropped by for a G-rated performance of ”Blurred Lines.” Instead of gazelle-like-lilting models for props, Fallon’s got house band The Roots providing a fun honky-tonk-sounding, end-of-the-week-happy-jam — sounds courtesy of a plethora of rainbow-colored kindergarten instruments. I dare you not to bop your head to this cute cover. C’mon, there’s a banana shaker! READ FULL STORY

Drunk Ron Weasley celebrates Harry's birthday (and looks familiar) on 'Fallon' -- VIDEO

As any good witch- or wizard-wannabe knows, the Boy Who Lived isn’t much of a boy anymore. In fact, he turned 33 yesterday — on a date that also happens to be Harry Potter mastermind J.K. Rowling’s own birthday. (There must be some powerful magic at work every July 31.)

Naturally, Harry’s fans and celebrated the big day by writing fawning online tributes, making elaborate cakes, and admiring all seven of Kazu Kibuishi’s new covers for the series. And then there was Harry’s best friend Ron Weasley, who decided to fete his friend by singing a special song on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon… and chugging something that looks a little stronger than butterbeer.

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:
