This could have gone so badly. On last night’s Tonight Show, host Jimmy Fallon busted out his “Musical Impression Generator” – which, we’re just going to say it, we think is rigged and not at all random – to have a little fun with his guest Christina Aguilera. The songstress was tasked with imitating a bunch of other female singers – see? rigged! – but the highlight of the entire segment (the entire show?) came when she was asked to pretend to be Britney Spears.

Poor Bill Paxton is going to wake up this morning and have zero idea what is going on. Here, Bill, look at this video.
Hey, sorry if you weren’t planning on seeing Hot Tub Time Machine 2, because after you watch this clip of stars Craig Robinson, Adam Scott, and Clark Duke jamming out to the comedy sequel’s unofficial theme song, you’re not going to have a choice. The very catchy – and, let’s be honest here, very familiar – song is an instant earworm, the kind the will wiggle right into your brain and not let go.
Field trip time! Late Night host Seth Meyers took his gig on the road – albeit, briefly, and in his own home city – to visit New York City’s Toy Fair. What’s Toy Fair?, you may wonder. Well, it’s only the best annual gathering of new toys in the whole world (probably?). The yearly event serves as the introduction to a bunch of new toys and gadgets and fun stuff, and Meyers decided to pay it a visit to find out what the next round of hot new toys are going to be.
Alert, alert: Will Smith still has it. The star of the upcoming con man romantic comedy drama (co-ma rom-com-dram?) Focus hit The Late Show last night to chat it up with host David Letterman and, oh, yeah, to just randomly rap “Gettin Jiggy Wit It” alongside Letterman’s own band. Sure, most late night guests just walk out on stage, give a big hello, and sit down, but not Smith, who seemed determined to remind everyone of his rap roots.
Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon is now the proud reciepent of his very own ice cream flavor from Ben & Jerry’s – “Tonight Dough,” which sounds, quite frankly, really delicious – so it’s understandable that so many of his fans are eager to try it. Fortunately for them, there’s actually a Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop located at Rockefeller Center, the same complex where Fallon films his show (ya know, 30 Rock). How could these two little details possibly come together?
Why doesn’t everyone ask John Oliver for advice on everything? The Last Week Tonight host consistently thinks of the best possible answer for every possible question, so why not just turn him into the world’s all-knowing sage or something? The guy isn’t that busy, right?
Wait, Matthew Perry, what? The big news in this new clip from Late Night With Seth Meyers isn’t that Perry almost didn’t star in Friends, it’s that he almost didn’t star in Friends because he was previously committed to a show about an airport…in the future. The show was called LAX 2194 and Perry actually did film a pilot, which was never bought because the show was terrible.
If you’ve ever seen pop superstar Taylor Swift at professional sporting event, you are probably aware that she tends to get very into the action, occasionally even dancing out her feelings – come to think of it, T-Swifty loves to dance out her feelings at plenty of events, just shaking it off everywhere she can – but you might not be aware of the deep history said dancing has with Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon.
However brief the window may have been, we can officially say goodbye to dreams of John Oliver returning to host The Daily Show after Jon Stewart. HBO has officially locked down its breakout star for two more seasons of the acclaimed Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, bringing more belated-but-hard-hitting journalism through 2017.
