Before The Roots were Jimmy Fallon’s house band on The Tonight Show, they were the guest band on The Jon Stewart Show. It’s amazing how different the band looked back in 1995 than they do now, but they sound just as great!
Allison Williams was on The Tonight Show yesterday to talk about starring in the upcoming live version of Peter Pan on NBC. Part of playing the part is learning how to fly, so Jimmy Fallon wanted to know if the Girl could teach him how to do it. She had a harness ready for him and once he was strapped in, it was time for him to fly.
It’s a shame NBC didn’t cast him in the role because out of all of the late night hosts he’s the most likely to never grow up.
Bono is not having a good week. First, the door on his plane fell off while it was up in the air, and over the weekend he hurt his arm. U2‘s other band members announced the news on their website. They said, “It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time – we’re one man down. Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it. We’re sure he’ll make a full recovery soon, so we’ll be back! Much thanks to Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding.”
So for all of you people who were pissed, that you were forced to get U2’s latest album for free on iTunes, it looks someone is trying to get their revenge on him. Could it be Steve Jobs spirit getting back at him for not doing it while he was alive?
Now when it comes to Fallon, I am so like sure the show is OK about. Not. They have less that 24 hours to find four new bands to play just over a week before Thanksgiving. That is not going to be easy. But you know, they could try for Bill Cosby because I hear The Tonight Show mainstay is available.
UPDATE: Here is what Jimmy Fallon had to say about U2 not doing the show this week, “No @U2 this week. But we’ll think of something and send vibes to Bono for a speedy recovery.”
The writers of The Tonight Show wrote some kid friendly jokes for the monologue. Instead of having Jimmy Fallon tell them, they let kids read them. The segment is so cute and so funny, I am beginning to think that only pre-teens should do late night monologues from now on. Don’t you agree?
Jay Leno made his first appearance on The Tonight Show since he left the show for a second time. Not only did he sit down with his replacement, he also did some of his standup routine for the audience. You know what, it was kind of a dirty. I forgot that he had that side to him because he was so clean when he was hosting the NBC late night show.
When he was done telling his jokes, it was time for him to sit down with Jimmy Fallon. The first thing the new Tonight Show asked him was, “How am I doing?” Leno responded by talking about the weather. Of course he was joking, but he never did answer the question. So maybe he wasn’t?
It was nice to seeing Leno look so relaxed. That is how he looks when I see him driving around Los Angeles, and I’ve seen him driving around in his old cars a few times.
Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie were on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon challenged them to a game of Pop Quiz. Basically the NBC late night host asked them a bunch of pop culture questions and for every answer they got wrong, Fallon would raise their chair. The goal is to get as many answers right, so your chair doesn’t reach balloon full of water. If it does, down comes a lot of water all over the loser.
The Today hosts might know where Iraq is on a map, but Savannah doesn’t know the name of the younger sister in Frozen and Matt can’t remember who played Ferris Bueller’s sister in the ’80s movie. So while they can tell you who won the elections yesterday, they don’t know the simple things like what is the name of Taylor Swift’s latest #1 album. And to me that is so much more important.
Anyways, Matt knows less that the new mom, so he got a much needed soaking. The best part is we got to watch it happen in slow-mo and what more can you ask for you to start your day.
Jake Gyllenhaal was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon challenged him to a game of Water Water. The NBC late night host has played this game with Jon Hamm and Hugh Jackman, but neither of them got into as much as the Nightcrawler. With each win, each man found a new way to dump the water on his competitor, and by the end of the game they were both dripping wet.
Watch the whole game to see how they got that way because you will be laughing so hard that parts of you will be wet.
Mike Tyson was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon wanted to see if the boxing legend could beat himself in the classic videogame Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out. The game was all set up for Iron Mike to play and with a one-two punch he was ready to go. So find out the answer to one of Mike Tyson Mysteries (that airs on Adult Swim, Mondays at 12m) by watching this incredible segment. It is a real knock out.
BTW am I the only who wondered if that is what Tyson sounds like in bed when he started grunting like that?
Bradley Cooper was on The Tonight Show to promote his Broadway drama The Elephant Man, and Jimmy Fallon and him couldn’t stop laughing. No matter how much they tried, they couldn’t stop the giggles. Finally, when they got under control, the NBC late night host said the wrong thing and it started all over again.
Even though not much was said, this is one of the greatest interviews I’ve seen on late night in a while. Who doesn’t like to watch people laugh?

We know Brad Pitt can act, but did you know he could breakdance too? He can! Yesterday on The Tonight Show, we found out he got moves that are so bitchin’, he could be in Breakin’ 3 with no prep work. In fact, Jimmy Fallon wasn’t that bad either and he could star along side him. Then there can be a rap battle in it with Justin Timberlake. How fresh would that be? Let’s make that happen.
