Kristen Wiig returns to 'Saturday Night Live,' busts a move in new promos -- VIDEO

Saturday Night Live Hall-of-Famer Kristen Wiig returns home to host the show this Saturday with musical guest Vampire Weekend. If the new promos are any indication, we’re all in for a treat. Wiig’s Garth & Kat partner Fred Armisen played along for her promos, which involve everything from reliving some of Wiig’s most famous characters (Jump-roping Rhonda!) to Armisen slapping her across the face for abandoning the show.

Other revelations: Wiig and Armisen have some wicked dance moves, and it wouldn’t be the craziest thing in the world for Olivia Newton-John to make a surprise appearance this Saturday. (Is it the Christmas show already?) But the moral of Wiig’s return is simple: You never know what you got till it’s gone. Now DANCE! (But, please… don’t make her sing.)

Lindsay Lohan on 'Late Show': Watch her awkward exchange with David Letterman

Things are going to get awkward on the Late Show tonight.

As previously announced, America’s favorite headline maker Lindsay Lohan is visiting David Letterman tonight, and if this preview clip is any indication, the host isn’t going for the softball questions.

In the clip, made available by CBS this afternoon, Letterman takes the actress by surprise, shifting talk to her upcoming stay in rehab. “What are they rehabbing, first of all?” he asks. “We didn’t discuss this in the pre-interview,” Lohan replies, before calling rehab “a blessing.”

Watch their exchange below.

On the scene: NKOTB take it step by step at Andy Cohen's 'Watch What Happens Live'

When Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen described the members of New Kids on the Block as the first boy band-turned-man band, he wasn’t kidding. Faster than you could say “Mazel!” the Beantown balladeers were talking about Joey McIntyre’s junk, and the adult conversation didn’t stop until the WWHL aftershow cameras clicked off.

Fresh off the release of their album 10, McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood, and brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight were eager to take on everything Cohen had on tap. As is custom at the Bravo Clubhouse, this included cheekily named games with titles like “New Kids on the Jock” (yes, that was a bulge-identifying contest — which they nailed) and “Who Kids on the Block” — a kiss-and-tell, Newlywed Game-style lark during which we learned Danny has always done well with the ladies and that Joey is, very proudly, the quintet’s biggest Masshole.

Bill O'Reilly doesn't feel that strongly about gay marriage and Stephen Colbert is DEVASTATED! -- VIDEO

In case you missed it, a lot of people are pro-gay marriage right now. It’s kind of the thing. This includes Bill O’Reilly, a noted strong feelings-haver who said recently both that “homosexuals” had the “compelling argument” in this week’s Supreme Court cases and that he doesn’t “feel that strongly about [gay marriage] one way or the other.”

This was world-shattering news for Stephen Colbert, who spent his show’s opening monologue working through the Papa Bear Paradox. He started with the flip-flop — “the gayest of all beach sandals” — and ended with goat marriage. America!

Usher makes the lights go out on 'Jimmy Fallon' -- VIDEO

Usher visited Jimmy Fallon last night to promote the new season of The Voice, and it initially seemed as if his electric presence short-circuited the entire stage. ”This is very interesting,” Fallon said, as the lights went pitch black just as he was introducing Usher. ”No, this is good, you guys. This is the way he wants it to be lit.”

Before he finished that sentence the lights came back on.

What followed was a delightful, if at times a little confusing interview. Usher teased that people don’t always get his humor — but that he was like ”black Larry David”– after a joke about his rings fell flat. ”I don’t know what to believe anymore,” Fallon said. ”It’s a tricky interview for me.”

With all these tricks for Fallon, it almost seems like NBC is putting him through a rigorous vetting process for something.

Seth Meyers to replace Jimmy Fallon? Meh. How about one of these funny ladies instead?

Don’t get us wrong — we’ve got no beef with Seth Meyers. His wry delivery is perfect for Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update, and he’s written plenty of classic sketches, including last fall’s masterful Louie/Lincoln parody.

But when word broke that NBC will supposedly bring in Meyers to host Late Night once Jimmy Fallon decamps for The Tonight Show, we couldn’t help meeting the news with a noncommittal shrug. Sure, he’d be a fine man for the job, and God knows SNL could use some new blood in its writers room. At the same time, though, wouldn’t it be nice if NBC didn’t pick a man to do this job?

While cable has its share of female-fronted late night talk shows — E!’s Chelsea Lately, Bravo’s Kathy, MTV’s fledgling Nikki & Sara Live – the networks haven’t featured a lady late night host since The Wanda Sykes Show crashed and burned on Fox in 2010. Among the Big Three networks alone, the record is even worse; there’s never been a late night chat show hosted solely by a woman on ABC, NBC, or CBS, though Joy Behar was one of The Midnight Hour‘s rotating hosts in 1990.

Simply put, that is ridiculous. And here are 10 funny women we’d like to see make history in Jimmy Fallon’s old seat.

Jimmy Fallon addresses 'Tonight Show' rumors -- VIDEO

To hear Jay Leno tell it, the network he’s called home for more than two decades is “extinct,” his bosses are “snakes,” and those ratings that are oh-so-terrible? “A 28-year-old woman from Serbia has a rare brain condition where she sees everything upside down. The good news? … She thinks NBC is at the top of the ratings.”

But in Jimmy Fallon’s world, the possibility that he’ll take over the network’s late-night crown jewel has him imagining a whole other possibility. Watch below:

Justin Timberlake and Steve Carell lend a hand, and an arm, to Jimmy Fallon -- VIDEO

Two years ago, Jimmy Fallon and Will Ferrell discovered the secret to a successful skit: fake arms, duh. As if every comedian didn’t already know that, right? Well, for Fallon and Ferrell, it started when the duo relived their Canadian soap opera days on Jacob’s Patience, and Ferrell attempted to make a sandwich using mannequin arms. The result was, well, memorable:

So memorable in fact, that last night, Steve Carell and Justin Timberlake joined the cast of Jacob’s Patience as the owners of a men’s clothing store, specializing — not surprisingly — in suits and ties. Fallon, as a customer at the store, had his inseam measured, was given water to drink, and even learned how to tie a tie… all with fake arms. Watch the clips below! READ FULL STORY

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon bring sexy back, barbershop quintet-style -- VIDEO

There’s just one thing better than four guys wearing goofy striped blazers and singing tight harmonies: Five guys wearing goofy striped blazers and singing tight harmonies, especially if one of them happens to be Justin Timberlake.

Late Night‘s Ragtime Gals can make any song sound that much classier — but their talents are particularly suited to this swoonworthy cover of “SexyBack.” Take note, college a cappella groups nationwide: this is how it’s done.

Jimmy Fallon's 'Justin Timberweek' kicks off -- VIDEO

Just can’t get enough of the Barry Gibb Talk Show? You’re in luck — all this week, the man behind Robin Gibb will be appearing with his “brother” Barry on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Though Fallon and Justin Timberlake haven’t officially broken out their Bee Gees impressions yet — and might not break them out at all, given Robin Gibb’s untimely death — the pair’s goofy impersonations of everyone from Adele to each other should be more than enough to keep you amused through Friday.

Take, for example, this first clip, in which Fallon and Timberlake trade a few off-color jokes about how they’re both sick — “We shouldn’t have made out,” Fallon says gravely — before discussing the singer’s recent return to SNL. Lessons learned: The “D–k in a Box” singing duo is actually called 2:30 a.m., Timberlake’s character in those sketches is named Raif, and nothing amuses these guys more than making weird guitar riff noises at each other.
