Jimmy Fallon discusses Jay Leno and 'Tonight Show' plans

Great news for viewers who just can’t get enough of Jimmy Fallon slow-jamming the news — it’s not going away anytime soon.

In an interview with the Orlando Sentinel, Fallon shared his plans for his move up to The Tonight Show, and explained that the Late Night team intend to pretty much do the exact same thing, just an hour earlier. “We have to. That’s my background from Saturday Night Live,” Fallon explained. “I do sketches, I act, I do impressions. It’s just part of my background, so I have to do that stuff. There’s a hole in late night for that. No one else is doing it. We started doing it five years ago and we’ve gotten really good at it. I’m doing musical stuff, ’cause I love music and so do the Roots. And people look forward to doing musical stuff when they come on our show….We’re doing our show as if we were doing The Tonight Show. It’s news to everyone else. We have been doing The Tonight Show.” READ FULL STORY

Why, oh why can’t this be the only thing I have ever witnessed her do?

Jimmy Fallon and Lindsay Lohan ditch twerking for scrumping -- VIDEO

Looks like Jimmy and Lindsay are giving Miley a run for her money.

Making a surprise appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, America’s favorite red-head Lindsay Lohan joined Fallon on Thursday for a hilarious sketch on pop culture playing Stephanie Sullivan on a fake TeenNick show called “Ew!”

Sporting curly pigtails and a spiked fitted cap Lohan tapped into her inner teenybopper as Stephanie –catching up with her drool-braced-faced BFFLFR (that’s best friend forever for life for realsies) host Sara (that’s S-A-R-A, no h!) for a recap of their latest adventures.

After gushing over the One Direction: This Is Us movie and Harry Styles–making awkward kissy-faces, the two switched up the conversation to Miley’s new video, but when Stephanie was prompted by Sara to twerk, Stephanie was clearly was over it.

“Did you see the new Miley Cyrus video?” Sara asked. “We should do some twerking!”

“Ew! No, Twerking is so 2-0-1-3, said Stephanie. Nowadays it’s all about scrumping!”

So who do you think has the upper hand, Miley or Stephanie? Watch the two get down in the hilarious clip  below and decide: READ FULL STORY

Tina Fey talks nip slip, her adorably weird daughter on 'Late Night' -- VIDEO

Hold up: Did you hear that Tina Fey had a slight wardrobe malfunction at last Sunday’s Emmy Awards?

Yeah, that topless shot in her last batch of SNL promos wasn’t totally without context. “If you videotaped it and like, slowed it down for one second, when I went to hug my friend Tracey Wigfield, who I won the Emmy with, I guess there was a little momentary situation,” Fey explained to her longtime pal Jimmy Fallon on Late Night yesterday. Only “some creeper” would have thought to look for it, Fey said — and if you want to be that creeper, you’re welcome to scrutinize Fey and Wigfield’s acceptance speech.

In less naked news, Fey and Fallon also spent a good portion of their chat talking about their kids. Specifically, newish dad Fallon asked for advice from Fey, who by now is an old pro at raising daughters. Her best words of guidance: “You just want them to be little fun weirdos and nerds for as long as possible.” And if the stories Fey then told about her oldest daughter Alice are any indication, she’s certainly fomenting a wonderfully weird environment. (Also: Is it just me, or does Fey’s imitation of Alice make her sound an awful lot like Nasim Pedrad’s SNL character Bedelia?)

Jimmy Fallon, the Roots, and its residents tell you how to get to Sesame Street -- VIDEO

Warning: The following video will make you grin uncontrollably.

Late Night‘s occasional “classroom instruments” videos — in which Jimmy Fallon, the Roots, and special guests perform popular songs accompanied only by woodblocks, toy xylophones, and the like — are generally pretty great. For pure joy value, though, none of the previous clips can compare to this one — which features Fallon and his band performing Sesame Street‘s theme song with Big Bird, Elmo, Grover, and the rest of that show’s principal cast of muppets.

They’re counted in by The Count. Partway through, Cookie Monster devours his instrument. The Roots’ Black Thought does a Sesame Street-themed rap, assisted by Abby Cadabby. This video is, in short, awesome, and you should watch it immediately.

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon: Two Twits making hashtag happen

Last night, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake tried to make “hashtag” trend all by itself.

Timberlake, who’s spending every Tuesday this month with his late-night pal, in advance of the release of his new album, The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2, on Sept. 30, was just sitting in Late Night‘s guest room, eating some homemade cookies, when Fallon stopped by to hang. Or as Timberlake said, setting off the hashtag olympics, he was just “hashtag chilling.”

Back and forth it went, with Fallon landing the best hashtag shout-outs — hashtag [Cookie Monster eating sound] and hashtag [Ray Romano calling for Debra].

The guys got carried away — which was the point — but Questlove’s hashtag contribution might have the best hope of actually trending.

Emmys 2013: Neil Patrick Harris kicks off the show with help from former hosts (and one Paula Deen joke)

And we’re off! Neil Patrick Harris kicked off the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards with a host-filled opening number. What started with an over-complicated binge-watching bit (that made at least one viewer very dizzy), turned into a bit of a rough start on stage for the usually musical host.

Shying away from said musical talent, Harris wasn’t exactly on his game when he first came out on stage, trying too hard to make a joke about the way “kids” watch television nowadays. But after the first Paula Deen joke of the night, Harris was joined on stage by previous hosts Jimmy Kimmel, Jane Lynch, Jimmy Fallon, and Conan O’Brien, who picked up the tempo (a little) with gender jokes, tap dancing, and those always funny 2002-was-so-long-ago jokes.

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
