Pranks! Wacky, silly, fun pranks! Destructive, horrible, embarrassing pranks. On last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, former Saturday Night Live star Will Forte reminisced about a prank he once played on co-star Kenan Thompson, a generally benign (but charmingly so) prank that saw him and Kristen Schaal playing around in Thompson’s dressing room when he wasn’t present and then sending him pictures of the mayhem. This is a classic prank. What could possibly go wrong?

If you’re still feeling emotional about last night’s series finale of Parks and Recreation, this might not make you feel better, but it will certainly make you feel more! On last night’s Late Night With Seth Meyers, the entire cast of the series joined host Seth Meyers to talk about their show (and saying goodbye to it, sniff sniff). From Amy Poehler to Chris Pratt, Adam Scott to Aubrey Plaza, Aziz Ansari to Retta, everyone was here to celebrate the show. And you know who else was there in spirit? Li’l Sebastian. More tears, it’s okay, let it out.
For years, people have wondered if Kenny G, king of contemporary smooth jazz, has a sense of humor. He seems very serious and very dedicated – and let’s be real here, very talented – and that hasn’t saved him from being the butt of many jokes. But was the real joke that Kenny G was in on the joke? Based on his appearance on last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, we’re now convinced that the man knows exactly what he’s doing, and he’s relishing it.
The secret is, Jimmy Kimmel’s School of Perfect Acting is perhaps the worst acting school on the planet. Let these outtakes and bloopers make that perfectly (tee hee) clear. In his annual post-Oscars show, the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host unveiled a look at his eponymous acting school, where’s he trained such stars as Gary Oldman, Jeff Bridges, and Jennifer Aniston, thanks to his decidedly off-beat tactics. Has it profitable? Sure. Is it safe? No.
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?
