Blake Shelton was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon challenged him to a game of The Whisper Challenge. Basically, one guy wore head phones with blaring music as the other one read him a phrase that he had to guess. The Voice coach got Benedict Cumberbatch and even though he didn’t think he said it correctly, he did. Then after the NBC late night host got it, Shelton said, “That doesn’t even mean anything.” Then when it was explained to him that Cumberbatch was nominated for an Oscar, he was like, “Who? That’s a person?…I’ve never even heard of that.” Where is Watson when you need him?
How has the singer never heard of Benedict Cumberbatch? I guess that coaching on The Voice, recording new music and touring, there isn’t any time left for him to do anything else.
You know what, now that I think about it. Since Shelton doesn’t even know who Cumberbatch is, I think it would be fun if the Oscars got him to present. Imagine how bad he would screw up the names of the people he doesn’t know, which is probably almost of the nominees. Imagine if David Oyelowo got nominated and he had to try to say that name?
Animal expert Jeff Musial was on The Tonight Show yesterday and he brought some scary animals with him. First up was a cute baby Siberian Lynx and next it was time for a harmless Red Kangaroo.
After they made their national television debut, it was time for some Mexican Tarantulas to get some camera time. They got their chance to have some one on one time with Jimmy Fallon by crawling all over him. One of the eight legged guys wanted the spotlight to himself, so he spun his way to the top of the NBC host’s head. He also wanted to leave his mark, so he took a #2 on #1’s hair. You can tell he wasn’t the only one who did that because Jimmy looked extremely nervous. But not as nervous as Fallon was when it as time for the final guy to come out his basket. That’s right, they saved the best for last, a cobra. Watch what happens when the snake slinks his way in to Jimmy’s heart…attack.
As much as I felt for Fallon, I am a sadist. Therefore, I enjoyed watching him poop in his pants!
Many many many years ago, before Nicole Kidman was married; she kind of went on a date with Jimmy Fallon. Only problem is that he didn’t know that until she told him about it on The Tonight Show yesterday.
You see, they have a mutual friend, and, she told him that she liked the NBC host. So he called his friend and told him that he is bringing Nicole Kidman over to his apartment. What happened next was such a turn off to the Oscar winner, that she thought he was gay because he didn’t seem interested in her. You have to listen to them tell the story about what could’ve been. It is so endearing because it is so embarrassing for both of them. See celebrities have bad dates just like you and me.
To make matters worse for Fallon, he found out after the show that his wife dated Keith Urban who is now married to the woman he might’ve been married to if he played his videogames right. Poor Jimmy, I don’t know how much worse it could get for him. Maybe if he found out that he was up for Ethan Hunt’s role in Mission Impossible, but they decided to go with that unknown Tom Cruise instead. Now that I think about it, Kidman kind of has a look that she goes for because Cruise and Fallon kind of look alike.
Bradley Cooper spent his night off from The Elephant Man and his 40th birthday on The Tonight Show. Jimmy Fallon asked him about his secret musical talent and the American Sniper decided to demonstrate it for all of us to enjoy. Coops told them to play Neil Young’s Down by the River and then he did it. He air guitared the solo like it was nobody’s business. Therefore we can add that to list of the many many things that he can do. Now, can someone tell me what is on the list of things he can’t do?
Tonight on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots let One Direction enter their special room and together they all sang Santa Claus is Coming to Town with classroom instruments. If this doesn’t bring a smile to your face, then you are a true Scrooge. Bah humbug!
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?
