With eight million views, endless news coverage, and a rabid fan base in need of nostalgia, it’s safe to say Jimmy Fallon scored big with his retro Saved by the Bell reunion. As for the absent attendees, it’s no secret that Lark Voorhies and Dustin Diamond have had some trouble over the years, but they were certainly missed. Mario Lopez might need to refresh his acting ability, but Mark Paul hit it out of the park . . . again. No comment on Mr. Belding. Enjoy below.
In a lip-sync battle that easily entered the Emma Stone dimension, Will Farrell, Kevin Hart, and Jimmy Fallon fought it out for the title. Farrell easily earned the win, and his hilarious antics still shock me. Who would guess from looks alone that the guy would booty-dance to Beyonce? Watch below.
With short attention spans, increased technology, and limited interaction, it’s clear that the news needs a creative delivery. In an effort to detail President Obama’s controversial executive order on immigration, Jimmy Fallon turned to Brian Williams. The 10-year veteran of NBC’s Nightly News has some serious swag. Watch below to see Williams joined by Fallon and Tariq Trotter from The Roots, who uttered the impressive line, “Republicans are mad immigrants aren’t leaving, just like your in-laws on Thanksgiving.” Enjoy!
When Bono bailed on Jimmy Fallon due to a bike accident, his team quickly turned things around with a set of last-minute sketches that proved his prowess as the top late night host. Fallon used Bono’s planned wardrobe and sang ‘Desire’ alongside The Roots. Though the entire week was set aside for Bono’s residency to promote U2’s new album, a curve ball won’t stop the man with many talents. Watch below to see Fallon kill it while wearing the Irishman’s signature shades.
Barbara Streisand made a refreshing return to late-night television last night, where the iconic singer performed duets off her latest record beside Jimmy Fallon, who played the role of Elvis, Michael Buble, and Blake Shelton. Hats off to the host for getting the iconic ice queen to loosen up a bit. Watch below.
Of all the Joan Rivers tributes circling the web, the Watch What Happens Live montage below got me the most. Rivers visited Andy Cohen’s clubhouse on numerous occasions, showing her sharp wit, comedic timing, and sweet soul. Watch to see a great mash-up of material, along with Rivers’ take on returning to The Tonight Show after 28 years, courtesy of the great Jimmy Fallon who finally broke the infamous Johnny Carson ban.
The most moving part of Jimmy Fallon’s tribute to Robin Williams wasn’t his “O Captain! My Captain!” desk stance, it was his very accurate impersonation of Williams’ stand up. If your style warrants an impression, then you certainly made one. Plus, for a brief moment in the past two days, I thought of Robin the way I hope to remember him. Watch below.
Reliable sources tell me that Cameron Diaz is the coolest chick around, and the blonde bombshell solidified that status during a kayak race with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. Watch Diaz and her guns get the best of the late night host.
