Jimmy Fallon predicts the Super Bowl with puppies -- VIDEO

Super Bowl Sunday approaches, PopWatchers! Who will you stake your wagers on? (And by wagers, we obviously mean M&Ms and not real money.) Should you go with the tattooed 49ers wonder Colin Kaepernick? Or will the Ravens’ Ray Lewis take it all through the power of faith (and dance)? Hey, maybe you’re just watching for Beyoncé. But whatever the case, forget Vegas odds. Jimmy Fallon is here to tell you who will win — with the help of five adorable Golden Retrievers. Check out the video below: READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Fallon and Brian Williams slow-jam the debt ceiling -- VIDEO

What would it take for NBC to just go ahead and transform Rock Center into a sketch show? Brian Williams has been the network’s comedic secret weapon for years now — and this Late Night performance is just the latest in a long line of surprisingly funny guest appearances for him. (Bonus: Watching it might actually teach you something about current events.)

Yesterday, the newsman joined Jimmy and The Roots for a sensual slow-jamming about the debt ceiling, keeping a perfectly straight face even as Fallon cracked up over lines like, “Take it from my man Brilly Willy: ain’t nothing worse than a soft Boehner.” And then came the Salt-n-Pepa interlude, which not even a buttoned-up BriWi could resist. Turn down the lights — er, the brightness on your computer screen — sit back, and see the magic happen:

'30 Rock' cast reminisces on 'Jimmy Fallon' -- VIDEO

Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Jane Krakowski, and Jack McBrayer, all hanging out with Jimmy Fallon and telling behind-the-scenes stories about 30 Rock? And at some point, every one of them does a Tracy Morgan impression?

I want to go to there.

Last night, the principal cast of the celebrated NBC sitcom — 97 Emmy nominations, nerds! — visited Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, getting together for the first time since 30 Rock‘s wrap party in December. Their whole 26-minute appearance is worth watching, especially for the backstage tidbits. In the first part of the interview, for example, Jordan — er, Morgan — enthuses about that legendary wrap party, likening it to a Caligula-style orgy and saying that it gave him an opportunity to make out with every member of the show’s cast and crew. (Fallon: “Even with Alec?” Morgan: “Especially with Alec! I’m pregnant right now!”)

Jimmy Fallon's Black Simon and Garfunkel tackle Rihanna's 'Diamonds' -- VIDEO

Hello, Black Simon & Garfunkel, our old friends — you’ve come to sing to us again.

In 2011, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon introduced a new bit in which a pair of Simon & Garfunkel soundalikes — a.k.a. Captain Kirk Douglas and ?uestlove of house band The Roots — performed mournful, harmonic covers of pop songs. Since then, the duo has tackled tunes including Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.”  Last night, they took the stage again to put their stamp on Rihanna’s “Diamonds.” This minute-long clip is enough to make me think that Black S&G should just go ahead and release a full album:

Jimmy Fallon, Billy Crystal, and Jerry Seinfeld revive 'Who's on First?' -- VIDEO

How about that — the world hasn’t ended yet after all!

To celebrate, let’s gather ’round our warm, comforting computer screens and watch a clip that evokes a simpler time — namely, this bit from last night’s Jimmy Fallon, in which Fallon enlists a few of his famous friends to help him perform Abbott and Costello’s classic play-on-words baseball bit “Who’s on First?” (The not-as-famous folk in the video are Fallon announcer Steve Higgins as Costello and Fallon head writer A.D. Miles as What.)

Jimmy Fallon channels Bob Dylan singing 'Jingle Bells, Batman Smells'

Jimmy Fallon is a populist at heart, and last night, the people’s talk show host fulfilled audience requests on Late Night, which led to him performing the holiday classic “Jingle Bells, Batman Smells” à la Bob Dylan. His impression was spot-on, as always, but this acoustic guitar and harmonica-infused performance was especially impressive and humorous considering the song’s silly tone.

Tracy Morgan rants against 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' with Jimmy Fallon -- VIDEO

Jimmy Fallon’s holiday gifts just keep on comin’!

Holiday pajama-clad Fallon and Tracy Morgan read “Twas the Night Before Christmas” yesterday on Late Night. Well, Fallon read the holiday classic while Morgan, staying true to his 30 Rock alter ego, played the part of Scrooge by making pessimistic and irrelevant side notes. He somehow steered the topic of discussion to pimps, penises, and bedroom activities. Fallon is straight-faced throughout the segment, but struggles to keep his cool once Morgan recites his phallic poem.

Jimmy Fallon, Michael Buble, Keira Knightley, and Dave Matthews play musical instrument game -- VIDEO

Full time late-night talk show host, part time game show enthusiast Jimmy Fallon orchestrated yet another hilarious competition last night on Late Night.

Keira Knightley and Dave Matthews squared off against Fallon and Michael Bublé in an intense round of “The Musical Instrument Game.” The holiday themed song guessing game involved odd instruments, discordant sounds, and plenty of confusion on Matthews’ part. The singer forgot that Bublé was a musician.

“I feel like this exposes me in a professional way,” Matthews said. “Me too,” Bublé responded. “You’re not a … I mean … you are a musician,” Matthews then exclaimed. Nice save, Matthews, nice save. Maybe he was too flustered at the sight of the ethereal Knightley to think clearly.

Jimmy Fallon and Carrie Underwood transform rap songs into country ballads -- VIDEO

I’ll bet you didn’t know that in the ’90s, Jimmy Fallon and Carrie Underwood performed together as singing duo Jim Carrie. (Carrie looked very grown-up for her age, considering she was born in 1983.) The two double-handedly invented a new genre: country-rap, or c’rap. Their country-fried takes on classics like “Straight Outta Compton” (which, in this iteration, is about a “crazy mother-effer named Ice Cube, from the gang called Fellas With Attitude”) and “Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang” will have your toes tapping and your eyes watering. Who knew that “The Humpty Dance” would sound so moving as a ballad?

Kristen Stewart talks about her 'Breaking Dawn' Chucky baby on 'Jimmy Fallon' -- VIDEO

Kristen Stewart — sporting a retro Brigitte Bardot look — stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night as part of her seemingly never-ending Breaking Dawn: Part 2 promotional tour. The usually stiff actress seemed at ease with Fallon (as opposed to her awkward chat with Jay Leno last week) while cracking jokes about baby Renesmee, Bella and Edward’s daughter in the film.

To capture the rapid growth of half-vampire-half-human Renesmee, director Bill Condon used a CGI baby in the film that Stewart likened to Chucky. “It’s got a lot of hair and sticky fingers,”  she said. Anytime Condon brought in an actual baby to play the role, Stewart said the cast was overjoyed. “Occasionally we did have a real baby and it was so clear. It was like reflected in everyone’s faces. The entire room would light up and then they would be like, okay let’s just try the digital one, let’s try the Chucky doll.” Can you say electronic baby drama?
