This weekend’s night club shooting in Orlando was still fresh in everyone’s minds when America’s late-night hosts returned from their weekend break on Monday night. An emotional Jimmy Fallon addressed the events in his opening monologue on The Tonight Show.
Jimmy Fallon is all about helping out the young people. So on "The Tonight Show" Tuesday, with graduation day looming for so many, Fallon provided some pros and cons for (successfully) leaving that very important and very expensive academic institution known as college.
"He taught us how to do something smart and stupid for comedy," host says. "He just wants to have fun and be goofy, and I'll always remember that."
There's a new trend sweeping the nation and it's called "The Dad Bod." Basically, it's when a guy has sort of a rounded, untoned physique often associated with drinking beer and eating pizza. And apparently, many women find this to be attractive.
On Monday, the sort-of-Italian mega-chain introduced a line of breadstick sandwiches that come with a side of unlimited breadsticks.
Earlier this week, a shoddily disguised U2 busked in New York City’s 42nd Street station. The gig was a stunt for Jimmy Fallon, who on Friday dedicated an entire Tonight Show episode to the band. Footage was previously limited to a few choice clips on Instagram, but Fallon’s now shared the full, triumphant video of the performance.
Bono and U2 made their anticipated appearance on The Tonight Show on Friday night and spoofed the lead singer's bicycle accident Jimmy Fallon-style. The frontman and Tonight Show host boarded bicycles in front of the NBC Studios in the video (Bono's bike was black and Fallon's was white and adorned with handle tassels, a bell and a flower-covered basket) for the singer's "first" bike ride since his accident.
Jimmy Fallon and Jack Black brought Extreme's 1990 hit "More Than Words" to life Monday night on "The Tonight Show." The pair performed a spot-on rendition shot just like Extreme '90s music video for the track -- in black and white. They even sported wigs to get into character. "More Than Words," originally performed by Nuno Bettencourt and Gary Cherone, appeared on the album, "Extreme II: Pornograffiti" and reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top 100 chart. Extreme followed the hit up with "Hole Hearted."
Helen Hunt join Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” Friday and started the Cinco de Mayo celebration early with a game of beer pong and tequila shots.
Robert Downey Jr. and Jimmy Fallon rode a roller coaster of emotions Monday night.
Lip Sync Battle, the Tonight Show sketch turned Spike TV show, premiered last night and featured a thrilling throwdown between Jimmy Fallon and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The Rock, fresh off his fantastic Saturday Night Live hosting gig, opened the show with a spirited take on Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off.” The Furious 7 star put his massive frame to use while shaking it off to the music and in a move straight out of the WWE taunting playbook, wagging his finger in Fallon’s face.
Because he is an important man at NBC, Jimmy Fallon has been afforded that most important-man-ish of perks: his own executive bathroom. On the walls of this bathroom hang framed images of another important man in NBC’s history, Johnny Carson—more specifically, framed print ads from the 1970s featuring Carson modeling suits and sportswear from his Johnny Carson Apparel line.
