The Ragtime Gals made another appearance on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon yesterday and this time Steve Carrell was there to harmonize with them. The barbershop quartet reworked Marvin Gaye’s Sexual Healing in a way that worked for them and took all the sexualness out of it. Even though the sex was gone, the song is still very healing.
So sit back on this chilly day and warm up with this song! It’s better than a cup of cocoa.
Jimmy Fallon and his wife, Nancy, welcomed their second daughter via surrogate today. The beaming couple released this statement to People, “Frances Cole Fallon officially entered the world at 8:45 a.m. on Dec. 3, weighing 5 lbs., 11 oz. and is 18.5 inches long. Their new addition joins big sister, Winnie Rose, [16 months]. The couple opted to keep their baby joy to themselves until their new daughter made her official debut.”
Unlike last time, the proud pop is taking tonight and tomorrow off from The Tonight Show. Which is well deserved because afterall Entertainment Weekly named him Entertainer of the Year.
Hopefully Jimmy, Nancy, Winnie, Franny and Gary are enjoying some family together for the next few days because sleeping will not be on any of their radars for a long long time.
Yesterday on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon played Pictionary with Martin Short (who was on his team), Jerry Seinfeld and Miranda Sings. The game was so bad that it ended in a tie. As in both teams didn’t score any of points.
So watch one of the worst games of Pictionary ever played because it is always fun to watch two teams compete for suckiest team of them all.

Before Christopher Walken was Captain Hook on Peter Pan Live, he was arm wrestling a one armed machine on The Colgate Comedy Hour. How awwwwdorable was the 10 year old in that 1953 bit with Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin. Too bad we didn’t hear him talk because I would love to have known if he had that voice back then.

Yesterday on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon and Rashida Jones reworked today’s biggest hits like Meghan Trainor’s All About That Bass and Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda as Chanukah and Christmas Carols. My favorite one is Mistletoe which is their version of Frozen’s Let It Go. Actually, I loved them all and wish they would release them as an album. Don’t you want to add it to your collection of Christmas music?
Jimmy Fallon introduced a new game to The Tonight Show yesterday called Musical Beers. Basically it is the adult version of Musical Chairs, instead of grabbing a chair you have to grab a beer.
The players of the game were the NBC late host, Mark Ruffalo, Stephen Merchant, Tariq from The Roots and Steve Higgins. You’d think the very tall Merchant would have the advantage, but a smaller Fallon plays dirty. There is only one person who plays dirtier than him and that is the Hulk. So watch what happens when both men have to go for the same cup. Let’s just say there will be beer spilled!
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?
