NBC
The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon might be prone to brief spats of name-dropping – hey, the guy knows a lot of people! – but on last night’s show, it was at least somewhat appropriate. Still recovering from Sunday night’s SNL 40 super special, Fallon was eager to share his recollections of the evening with his studio audience (and also Questlove, who was actually there, but who charitably recounted the whole evening with the giddy Fallon). There were a lot of people there!

NBC
Back in November, Late Night With Seth Meyers took on Aaron Sorkin with their own spectacular send up of the television visionary and his special brand of entertainment. Last night, they took that wit and went straight to the heart of The Black List. Sort of.

Dogs can’t play Catchphrase! Try telling that to Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, who faced off against perhaps the most motley crew ever assembled to play a Tonight Show game – well, so far, at least – including host Jimmy Fallon, guest Jack McBrayer (forever an NBC page to us), and Colin Firth. If everyone present looks confused, it’s because they are, almost gloriously so.

Imagine you’re asked to appear as an extra in a new movie. Also imagine you’re told but a handful of things about the movie: that it’s set in the seventies, that it stars Burt Reynolds, and that you just need to clap a lot during some sort of awards show scene.

Stay with this one. On last night's 'Tonight Show,' Hugh Grant appeared to chat about various things -- including his new Valentine's Day-timed rom-com release, 'The Rewrite' -- before joining in on a spirited game of Hallway Golf with host Jimmy Fallon and special guest Charles Barkley. Despite a slow start -- it appears that no one really understands the rules or even cares about them -- this game eventually does pick up.

NBC
The upcoming 'Fifty Shades of Grey' feature might not be everyone's cup of sexy tea, but leading lady Dakota Johnson would like to at least attempt to change the minds of potential viewers who don't think that anything—yes, anything—can be sexy with the right attitude. On last night's 'Tonight Show,' Johnson was tasked with reading off a series of decidedly unsexy lines, including stuff about Chapstick (?) and sweatpants (?) in an attempt to make them alluring.

If there's one thing that no one talks about enough, it's that Anna Faris and Chris Pratt are not only married, but that the very funny duo actually have a pint-sized baby boy together. How funny is that kid going to be? Despite baby boy Pratt's charmed life, he's already had to endure the indignity of one thing: air travel. More specifically: international air travel with an apparently irritable Mickey Rourke.

Watch a Tearful Jon Stewart Announce His ‘Daily Show’ Retirement to a Stunned Live Audience

EDIT

It's the moment we all knew would happen eventually -- and, based on the immediacy of the news cycle and when late night shows are actually filmed, it's the moment most of us also knew was happening yesterday -- but 'Daily Show' host Jon Stewart has finally announced his retirement after seventeen years at the news desk. Stewart's show films in the late evenings in New York City, so the news that he had announced his imminent retirement during a taping last night hit the wire many hours before the show actually aired.

CBS
Steve Carell may be nominated for an Oscar for his recent turn in 'Foxcatcher,' but the now-lauded actor has never forgotten the pain of a bad review. More specifically, he's never forgotten the pain of a single bad review, one that compared his performance to standing in a morgue full of dead bodies, eventually determining that Carell's work was somehow worse than said dead bodies.

Watch ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Star Jamie Dornan Read From the Book, With a Twist

EDIT

NBC
As part of a segment he likes to call “Fifty Accents,” host Jimmy Fallon set Dornan up with a “randomly chosen” (sure) accent and a passage from the E.L. James book that became a “global phenomenon.” It's both raunchy and weird, but at least it shows off a little bit of Dornan's range in a way that's (mostly) PG.
