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.
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!
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.
Dogs can’t play Catchphrase! Try telling that to Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, who faced off against perhaps the most motley crew ever assembled to play a Tonight Show game – well, so far, at least – including host Jimmy Fallon, guest Jack McBrayer (forever an NBC page to us), and Colin Firth. If everyone present looks confused, it’s because they are, almost gloriously so.
Imagine you’re asked to appear as an extra in a new movie. Also imagine you’re told but a handful of things about the movie: that it’s set in the seventies, that it stars Burt Reynolds, and that you just need to clap a lot during some sort of awards show scene.
Stay with this one. On last night's 'Tonight Show,' Hugh Grant appeared to chat about various things -- including his new Valentine's Day-timed rom-com release, 'The Rewrite' -- before joining in on a spirited game of Hallway Golf with host Jimmy Fallon and special guest Charles Barkley. Despite a slow start -- it appears that no one really understands the rules or even cares about them -- this game eventually does pick up.
