Fallon's 'Ew!' hits No. 26 on Hot 100

Jimmy Fallon’s celebrity-buds-hanging-out, viral-video-spawning version of the Tonight Show continues to hit new peaks. Now, a song Fallon produced with will.i.am as a joke has found itself on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Ew!” features Fallon and will.i.am in full-on teen girl garb as they make fun of other, similarly awkward girls. Everything is “ew” for the pair, but as will.i.am explains, “I am hating, I am merely conversating.”

The novelty single has shot to No. 26 on the chart, probably thanks to will.i.am’s hook and Fallon’s surprisingly good flow. “This is unbelievable!” Fallon said. “No. 26? I’d be happy with 99!”

This isn’t the first time a Tonight Show host has made the chart: Steve Allen did it twice in 1963, but that was years after he left as host.

He probably didn’t have a hilarious, Questlove-featuring music video.

Emma Stone plays Box of Lies on 'Tonight Show'

Emma Stone might be a great actress, lip synch-er, and Spice Girls fan, but liar? Not so much.

Stone went on The Tonight Show Tuesday to play Box of Lies, a game that involves lying about what you find in a mystery box. Stone pulled a Frozen DVD frozen in a block of ice in her box, but told Jimmy Fallon she had playing cards that were formed into a “sculpture stack of those cards in the shape of, I guess it could only be a salamander. Or like a gecko, I guess.” Thanks to the combination of Stone’s lack of lying skills and the impossibility of a gecko sculpture made out of cards, she lost the round.

In all fairness, she warned us: “I love to lip-synch, but I am a terrible liar,” Stone said before choosing her box. “So this is a bad game for me.” READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Fallon teams up with Will.i.am for 'Ew' music video

Jimmy Fallon’s character Sara has hung out with many familiar faces, including Taylor Swift, Seth Rogen, and even Michelle Obama. But on Monday’s Tonight Show, Sara collaborated with her new best friend, Will.i.am–excuse me, Mir.i.am–to debut a music video about her favorite word, “ew.”

Billy Crystal and Jimmy Fallon reminisce about Robin Williams

During his appearance on The Tonight Show last night, Billy Crystal emotionally told Fallon about eulogizing his friend Robin Williams at the Emmys. That prompted a sad—but, naturally, hilarious—remembrance of Williams from both Crystal and Fallon. READ FULL STORY

Julianna Margulies sings high-school morning announcements on 'Fallon'

While singing won’t help Alicia Florrick win in the courtroom any time soon, Emmy winner Julianna Margulies proved she could at least boldly attempt to carry a tune on last night’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon's iPhone commercial is kind of like '2001: A Space Odyssey'

Thanks to its role in 2001: A Space Odyssey, Richard Strauss’ “Thus Spoke Zarathustra” has practically become synonymous with technology. (Need a refresher? Click here. Need a laugh? Follow this link.)

It’s no surprise, then, that the musical number was used in a commercial for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which were announced today in a rather grandiose way.

In the commercial, two hands wave the new models through the air, showcasing their flashy, updated features, set to “Thus Spoke Zarathustra” with an Apple twist: Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon’s charming a cappella rendition of the famed musical number.

The video ends with the tagline: “Bigger than bigger.” Is it? We’ll leave that up to you. For now, check out the ad here:

Adam Levine does a pretty great Eddie Vedder impression on 'Fallon'

Who knew Adam Levine had such range?

Tuesday night on The Tonight Show, Levine showed off some pretty impressive impressions when Jimmy Fallon challenged the Maroon 5 crooner to a game of musical impressions, except it isn’t a Jimmy-Fallon-celebrity-game without a cutesy twist. In the styles of specific artists like Michael Jackson and Iggy Azalea, they riffed on kiddie tunes like the Sesame Street theme song and “Old McDonald.” Thus, Levine had to ditch the Maroon 5 wailing and sing a grizzled version of “The Muffin Man” in the style of Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder.

For once, it seems Fallon has been bested in the impressions department—though to be fair, Iggy Azalea’s accent does seem to be of an indeterminate origin.

Fallon plays 'Goldeneye' with Pierce Brosnan, becomes a Bond villain

When Pierce Brosnan first took on the iconic role of James Bond in 1995’s Goldeneye, he very likely had no idea he was becoming a part of video game history. But Goldeneye 007, the 1997 video game adaptation of the film, was a huge success, and a whole generation of video game fans grew up with Brosnan’s face plugged into their Nintendo 64.

So when the actor came by The Tonight Show last night, host Jimmy Fallon, a huge video game fan, challenged him to a match.

Brosnan isn’t very good, but Fallon doesn’t really care—he’s too busy cackling with glee in exuberant Bond villainy. Fallon’s enthusiasm rubs off, and it looks like Brosnan is having a jolly time. They really should have changed the game mode, though: The Man With Golden Gun is the way to go for sudden death Goldeneye matches. And you can’t forget Big Head mode. That’s important.

Taylor Swift gets nerdy in Jimmy Fallon's 'Ew!' sketch

Taylor Swift? Ew.

Swift is the latest star to guest on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show sketch “Ew!,” a mock Teen Nick show that features Fallon dressed as a teenage girl who says “Ew!” in response to almost everything. In the sketch, which aired Wednesday, Swift plays a nerdy 13-year-old named Natalie who likes “to eat apricots” and has “a Band-Aid collection.”
