Jimmy Fallon's 'Tonight Show' viewers sure do love to share personal stuff with the late-night host, even if that personal stuff gets shared on a worldwide social media platform that the whole world can see. Fallon has had quite a bit of success using Twitter to solicit fun stories from his fanbase, and they always respond to his calls for hashtagged tales in spades.
On last night's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' rapper/actor/apparent ESPYs host Drake gussied himself up and took to the streets to quiz people about, well, him. The results? A lot of weird opinions about Drake, who is so obviously the guy standing in front of these people, no matter his bad wig or worse shirt. Hey, at least there was some singing.
Stephen Colbert’s conservative character that he currently plays on ‘The Colbert Report’ will be gone, replaced by the actual Stephen Colbert – a guy, kind of surprisingly, not a lot of people know, as opposed to the character he’s been playing since 2005.
What will ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ look like, as opposed to Letterman and Colbert’s current show? Here are our hopes:
Well, that was fast! Just one week after David Letterman dropped the 'Late Show' bombshell that he would retire in 2015, his replacement has officially been announced. Following early and decisive rumors, Stephen Colbert will officially leave behind Comedy Central's 'Colbert Report' to ascend the late-night throne as the new host of CBS' 'The Late Show.' You're welcome, nation!
Let's review the things that 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon loves. He loves stars and music and vintage things and trucks (that last one might not apply here) and he loves nostalgia and silliness and having some seriously good-natured fun with all of those things. Obviously, the man loves Stevie Nicks. Who doesn't?
Lindsay Lohan hit the 'Late Show With David Letterman' last night, and the pair inevitably prank called Oprah (as one does), a gag that could have gone in a very different reaction if Winfrey wasn't so damn wise. Seriously, don't try to pull the wool over Oprah's eyes. She knows what's up.
Guillermo may be Jimmy Kimmel's "security guard" and "driver" and "friend," but he also has some big dreams, like usurping the late-night throne from his own boss and host of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.' If that involves stealing his jokes, so be it. If that means just taking over the late-night show's air time, fine. If he needs to text high-profile guests to get them on the show, consider it done.
The Library of Congress has long catalogued great works of art -- think films and books -- but it recently started doing the same thing to each and every tweet ever sent (neither great nor arty). As a newly minted 'Silicon Valley' star, stand-up comedian and Twitter hero in his own right, Kumail Nanjiani finds this appropriately hilarious, but he also sees some potential problems with it.
This one basically sells itself -- Anne Hathaway, who has the singing chops to match her acting talents, took to 'The Tonight Show' stage last night alongside piano-playing host Jimmy Fallon to give the big-voiced Broadway treatment to popular rap songs, like Snoop's classic "Gin and Juice." What does it sound like when Hathaway trills some of the more racy lyrics of the most well-known rap jams? Can Fallon effectively approximate a song usually played in "da club"? How much had to be bleeped out?
