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.

Benedict Cumberbatch is a man of his word. If he says he’s going to appear on your late night show, he’s going to appear on your late night talk show, for goodness sakes! Even if he just got married! Like, the day before! Across the world! He’ll still be there!

SNL 40: Jimmy Fallon Recaps the After Party, With Lots of Name-Dropping

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!

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.
