“It’s a thing called ring avulsion. A-V-U-L-S-I-O-N. If you Google it, it’s graphic images. Don’t Google it. But ring avulsion, it’s a real thing...,” Jimmy Fallon said last night, describing the gruesome hand injury that kept him away from his show for two weeks and will now fuel your paranoid nightmares for a lifetime. Jimmy Fallon is a silly clown who enjoys a drink from time to time, but he is absolutely correct: don’t Google it.
When well-regarded automobile enthusiast Jerry Seinfeld stopped by at The Tonight Show last night, he did something he hardly does anymore: picked up the microphone and told a few jokes.
In this edition of Jimmy Fallon's ongoing "Famous Song Played with Classroom Instruments" series, British handsome man cabal with angel voices and regrettable tattoos One Direction joined The Roots and the goofy TV host to threaten you with holiday spirit. Santa Claus is coming to town—and he's bringing these scruffy babes with him.
The duo of Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon took it all the way back to the summer camp of your '90s childhood last night in a sketch where they landed roughly 1.5 good jokes, one of which was "Remember Third Eye Blind's 'Jumper?'" Pretty good joke.
Steve Carell stole the show from Jimmy Fallon's barbershop quartet, the Ragtime Gals, last night, taking center stage in the a cappella version of "Sexual Healing" that you never knew you needed (probably because you didn't need it).
Brian Williams and Jimmy Fallon have a thriving musical partnership, wherein Fallon has someone on his staff remix clips of Williams into hip-hop cover songs, and Williams good-naturedly plays along. Once a year or so, Honey Bri-Bri also makes an appearance on Fallon's "Slow Jam the News" segment, where he returned last night to discuss immigration reform.
Seinfeld worked as well as it did largely because Jerry played the ultimate straight man at the center of a cast of weirdos. His character isn't funny without the George Costanzas of the world constantly freaking out around him, and they get funnier the more he futilely tries to reason with them. That's why a solo Jerry Seinfeld really needs Miranda Sings.
Jimmy Fallon's recurring Tonight Show games, like beer pong and musical impressions, are pretty reliable, but only because he doesn't overuse them—he has to mix it up by introducing new ways to torture his guests. Or, in the case of last night's new game, his audience.
What's up with Brad Pitt these days? [Pop] [lock] [extended windmill] [exagerrated shrug], basically. At least that's what Pitt('s stunt double) told Jimmy Fallon('s stunt double) in their interview last night, which was conducted in the form of breakdancing.
Chris Pratt, a funny actor you know, first got his start on The WB's Everwood, and the headshot that helped him land that role was one he got by following a man home to his West Hollywood penthouse from the post office.
