Jimmy Fallon told a joke on The Tonight Show yesterday that caused him a little discomfort and he needed to stop. Since the show must go on, he wanted to see if there was anyone that could fill in for him. Luckily, Jay Leno was available and took over the monologue.
This was not the Leno we used to know, he was a lot more risque and I liked it. Too bad he couldn’t have been that way when he had the show the first and second time. Wonder if the third one will be the charm. Joking, that ship has sailed. Or has it?
Actually, it is amazing how much late night television has changed since Leno left the show just a year and a half ago. All because of Fallon, if you think about it.
Yesterday on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon brought back my favorite segment and that is the game Phone Booth. Basically, Shaq and Hugh Jackman go into the archaic structure where people used to make phone calls when they were away from home and answer questions. For every answer they got wrong, another person would enter the confined space with them. For every answer they got right, a person would go in their opponent’s private space.
As you can guess, as soon as Shaq got into his standing box, there was barely any room left. To make matters worse, Wolverine got the first answer right. That means that the NBA giant got a visitor in his booth, and that guest was Alex Trebek. As soon as the NBC late night host shut the door, things got physical between the two men as the Jeopardy host put his life in that position as he felt up O’Neal.
Then as the game went on Shaq’s area filled up and Jackman’s didn’t. Which sucks for Shaq, and it o awesome for us because how can you not laugh at their suffering.
Seriously, I love Phone Booth so much, I hope a network picks it up as a game show. I know I would watch every episode because I love to watch people suffer. Since phone booths are made of glass, they can’t hide their reaction. Well, unless they are one of the shorter people who gets stuck between someone’s legs. That happened when Kevin Spacey played the game. See isn’t this game the best?
Miley Cyrus is going to be 23 next month, so you’d think she would’ve stopped sucking her thumb like 20 years ago. Guess not because she shared a photo of herself doing just that yesterday.
But in her defense, it could be that very emotional interview she did on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon pushed her to do it. I guess it hit her like a wrecking ball!
For the last few years, Black Simon & Garfunkel have been performing some of today’s biggest hits in the style of Simon & Garfunkel on The Tonight Show. Yesterday, they were joined by a special guest as they sang The Weeknd’s Can’t Feel My Face. That special guest was none other than Art Garfunkel, himself. Hearing him harmonize with the updated version of the Folk duo, proves how much they sound like the original ones. La la la, la la la la la, la la la!
Too bad Paul Simon and Garfunkel hate each other so much because it would be so groovy to hear all four them sing a current chart topper together. Maybe there is a way they can smoke the peace pipe just one more time to make it happen.
BTW I wonder if Questlove and Garfunkel exchanged secrets on the art of maintaining the perfect fro?
If you listen to the song Bitch Better Have My Money, you don’t think it sounds like it is worth a lot of dinero. That all changed last night when the Ragtime Gals performed the Rihanna hit in their own special way on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. Now it sounds like a million bucks, so those bitches better have my money because I want my $1 million bucks!
The Tonight Show has been able to reunite the casts of California Dreams and Saved By the Bell to name a few and now Jimmy Fallon reunited Kenan & Kel. Not only did the NBC host do that, he had them recreate Good Burger. And it was not only good, it was All That and so much more!
So sit back with some Good Fries and watch this bloobity bit!
I hope The Tonight Show considers doing All That reunion next with the original cast? How awesome would that be?
UPDATE: Nickelodeon finally made it official! The Splat is coming to computers and TVs near you starting on October 5th, so now you can enjoy your favorite Nick shows from ’90s whenever you want on TeenNick and The Splat. What more could a child of the ’90s want?
Jimmy Fallon has the #1 late night talk show and some day he is going to have to pass The Tonight Show torch on to someone else. Instead of waiting until the last minute, he decided to test out who is the best person to run his Jimpire. By the end of the night, he made a choice, but is it the right one? To NBC, yes. To us, not so much.
It has been 31 years since the music video for Lionel Richie’s Hello came out and we are still talking about it today. In fact, yesterday on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon recreated it with a little twist. He played the singer and the singer played his ceramic bust. As the NBC late night host sang the song, Richie sat their motionless. Then when the chorus came on, he started to sing. That is where it gets creepy and yet you can’t turn away. There is just something so captivating about it, especially when both men can’t control their laughter. Which makes you laugh along with them and then you forget how creepy it is.
So is it the creepiest thing that Fallon has done in late night? No, that title is still held by him singing Barbara Ann with wax versions of himself, but this is a close second.
Hillary Clinton was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon brought up Donald Trump. The Presidential candidate asked the NBC host if The Donald ever let him touch his hair. When Fallon said no, she asked him if he wanted to touch her locks. He agreed and declared they are indeed real. She said they are, but the color is not. See she can tell the truth!
Before the two of them talked about Trump, Fallon pretended to be her competition and interviewed her via the phone. Their conversation was so full of zingers that the Republican candidates are now afraid of her.
Funny how while all of the GOP candidates were coming off like crap yesterday at the debate, Clinton was coming off as great! Isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?
Jimmy Fallon has impersonated Robert De Niro several times and yesterday the legendary actor was given a chance to do his best impression of The Tonight Show host. He was so spot on, it reminds us why he two Oscars.
