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.

Jimmy Kimmel debuts trailer for 'Zero Dark Flirty' -- VIDEO

If the widely talked about torture scenes kept you from seeing Zero Dark Thirty, Jimmy Kimmel has just the movie for you. Well, sort of.

Last night, Kimmel revealed his suggestion for Zero Dark Thirty‘s post-Oscars marketing strategy in order to get the faint-of-heart into theaters to see the political thriller. In the trailer for Zero Dark Flirty, the movie is advertised as a love story between Jessica Chastain’s character and the one man she can’t seem to find — her one true love, Osama bin Laden.

Set to “You Can’t Hurry Love,” the trailer explains that “sometimes it’s good to be a little bit Abbottabad.” Watch it below: READ FULL STORY

Tina Fey seriously isn't hosting the Oscars. Seriously -- VIDEO

The good news: Tina Fey has “sweatpants-mandatory” Oscar viewing parties, and if you eat your vegetables — er, off-brand Mexican cheese curls — and wish real hard, someday you might be invited to one.

The bad news: She really, really isn’t going to host the Oscar ceremony anytime soon. The subject came up last night on the Late Show, where Fey was appearing to promote her new movie Admission. After David Letterman complimented her performance at the Golden Globes, he asked if she and Amy Poehler might be up for the Academy Awards as well. Fey’s answer, unfortunately, echoed remarks she made to the Huffington Post this week: “I don’t think so. I’ll tell you what — for a woman, just the amount of dresses you would have to try on… It’s a dealbreaker. I’m out.”

Well, blerg. At least she sort of makes up for this later in the interview by predicting that one of her daughters will grow up to be a “lesbian paleontologist.” Check out the clip here:

Ben McKenzie talks the one similarity between 'The OC' and 'Southland' -- VIDEO

Some might think that Ben McKenzie left The OC behind when he swapped his wife beater and fists of fury for a police uniform and a gun. But believe it or not, McKenzie’s small-screen career choices have one little thing in common: prison.

Last night, McKenzie told Conan the story of a surprising fan encounter. While shooting season 1 of the cop drama Southland, McKenzie was on location when a real-life (presumably ex) gang member told him that he liked his work. Apparently, on Thursday nights at 9 p.m. in the joint, the cell blocks all sang the same tune: “California, California, here we cooommeee.”

The lesson here: Even convicts couldn’t resist the charm of the Cohen family. Watch below: READ FULL STORY

Jessica Alba runs a kissing booth on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' -- VIDEO

Some of the loneliest perverts in Hollywood assembled last night to compete for the chance to smooch Jessica Alba under the most normal circumstances possible — while she stood in a “celebrity kissing booth,” encased by four walls of protective plastic. Still, the experience seemed worth it for the lucky three — two women and one man — who managed to actually get thisclose to the Escape from Planet Earth star’s mouth.

The whole bit made last night’s edition of Live! feel like a revival of Jimmy Kimmel’s old Man Show on Comedy Central. (That tone persisted later in the evening, when guest Bobby Flay stopped by to reveal how to make the perfect burger.) Recreate the kissing booth experience below by pressing “play,” then pucker up for your computer screen:

'Saturday Night Live' recap: The girls beliebe, and Justin Bieber tries to prove he's more than a teen idol

The Beliebers were out in full force last night for Saturday Night Bieber. For Justin Bieber’s Saturday Night Live hosting debut, the audience was packed – at least volume-wise—with girls that were definitely suffering from some serious Bieber Fever. This was great news for the singer, who seemed most in his element when he was flirty with the camera for the teens at home. The show didn’t miss an opportunity to remind viewers why he was on the program: He’s a teen idol! The girls love him! It’s a good thing he’s still got that demographic locked up (they screamed for just about everything he did last night, whether it was a dance move, a wink or a surprisingly frequent crotch grab) because after last night, it’s unlikely he gained any more adult fans.

While Bieber was in almost every sketch – and, to his credit, wasn’t noticeably reading cue cards – anyone hoping he would follow in the path of another Justin was surely disappointed. For one thing, he mostly did variations on one character – The Teen Idol – and unfortunately, not a whole lot of it landed. It’s too bad they couldn’t do more musical stuff with him. Something comical that also had him singing would have been a great way to merge his fanbase with regular Saturday Night Live viewers, such as the recurring sketch from a few years ago (that was also a Timberlake fav.) “Bring It On Down To…” Alas, it wasn’t meant to be.

The cold opener, naturally, focused on the Super Bowl blackout and the resulting free-for-all that occurred among sports analysts when they found out they had to fill 30 minutes of air time  but had absolutely nothing to say. The sketch was likely born out of Seth Meyers’ own tweet during the blackout last week: “Who is more likely to cramp up: The players after the layoff or the studio analysts trying to fill time?” Answering his own question: It was the analysts, anchored by Kenan Thompson who repeatedly tried to throw it to reporters on the field, who also had absolutely nothing else to say. But how ‘bout those Two Broke Girls, eh? READ FULL STORY

Charlie Sheen wants to return to '2.5 Men': 'I am dead, but so's the show' -- VIDEO

The craziest thing about Charlie Sheen’s tiger-blood-soaked, “WINNING!” meltdown — er, “melt-forward”? Now that the crazy is nearly two years in the past, the ex-Two and a Half Men star is actually ashamed of his behavior. (Well, some of it, anyway.) When David Letterman asked last night if Sheen ever feels embarrassed when he thinks back on the spring of 2011, the actor answered the question quickly and matter-of-factly: “Of course. Have you seen some of those interviews? That stuff’s out there forever, man.”

That said, Sheen still seems proud of his very public crackup’s sheer audacity. “I booked a 21 city tour in 33 days with no act!” he crowed at one point during the Letterman interview, sounding equally incredulous and boastful. He also didn’t miss a chance to take a swipe at his old sitcom, even as he revealed that he’d like to return to the show for its last episode: “I am dead,” Sheen said, referring to the convenient subway accident that killed off his character at the beginning of season 9, “but so’s the show.” How’s that for a violent torpedo of truth?
