Jimmy Fallon may be a professional performer, but even the highly musical 'Tonight Show' host is no match for professional musician skills of 'The Voice' hosts Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton. The 'Tonight Show' host invited the pair on to the show last night for an epic lip sync battle, and things got ugly -- and quickly.
We've all got jobs we'd rather not remember -- that summer working the French fry bin at McDonald's, that bad internship at our mom's company -- and even mega Hollywood success doesn't prohibit a superstar like Liam Neeson from feeling that exact same pain. The actor has had bad, strange jobs, too, but nothing that could quite compare to his very first movie role.
Of the many changes in store for the 40th season of 'SNL,' none would prove so heartbreaking as the loss of beloved announcer Don Pardo, who passed away earlier this year. No one could ever replace Pardo's distinct intonation announcing every 'SNL' installment, though the new voice of the sketch comedy series will at least be a familiar one, as distinguished alum Darrell Hammond takes the mic.
If you've ever wondered what it would be like if Jimmy Fallon was a high school principal -- and that is, admittedly, a weird fantasy, but one the funny guy has apparently thought about a lot -- the 'Tonight Show' host provided an answer on last night's show. What would it be like if Jimmy Fallon was a high school principal? Well, it would certainly be musical.
This is the natural progression of 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon's assorted warblings and big-time musical impressions: a full-scale musical medley co-starring Barbra Streisand. The songstress has a new album out -- her 34th! -- that's titled 'Partners' and features just a mess of duets between Babs and a bunch of male partners. Get it? Partners?
Former 'SNL' head writer Seth Meyers has made it his business to bring some of those sketches cut from 'SNL' to his own 'Late Night' show, and the results have so far been uproarious. While Will Forte's cut bit got the full sketch treatment a few months ago, Bill Hader didn't need those same bells and whistles. After all, his snipped sketch just involved him putting on a weirdly nuanced impression of '60 Minutes' anchor Bob Simon.
The rules are simple (in fact, they're pretty much contained within the game's actual name) when it comes to Billy Eichner's 'Celebrity Child or Kentucky Derby Winner?' The 'Billy on the Street' host will name a particular name, and then you need to guess if it belongs to the child of a celebrity or a race-winning pony. Along the way, the loud-mouthed host will use his trademark screaming ability to drive things right along, and if you can get through the tricky trivia and the ear-splitting growl, you can win a dollar for each correct answer.
Dear Hugh Jackman, you know that 'The Tonight Show' is on television, right? More specifically, it's on live television in front of a studio audience, which means hundreds of people are watching the show in person, with millions more watching at home. In short, it's a very bad place to decide to cheat at a game, particularly if that game involves standing on an oversized pool table in front of said audience.
You know what's scary? That 'Jurassic Park' never got a theme song with catchy, snappy, and applicable lyrics. You know what's even scarier? The possibility that such a song does indeed exist, and that Jeff Goldlbum wants you to hear it. No, really. He's here to sing it for you, too. Get in on this, fans of dinosaurs run amok, because this is a game-changer.
Most people who have a hit show, indie accolades, and scads of awards and nominations before the age of thirty would probably take the time to attend their high school reunion and check in with everyone else they attended school with. Do you have a hit show, guy from English class? You, the girl who was mean to me in P.E., were you nominated for an Emmy? But Lena Dunham isn't like that, and the star and creator of 'Girls' didn't even both to attend her own high school reunion.
