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!

The SNL 40th Anniversary Special started off like you thought it might with two of its most popular modern day partners, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake. The two took the stage for the show's cold open and sang, danced and rapped their way through 40 years of SNL history (with a few special guests, of course).
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.
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.
The upcoming 'Fifty Shades of Grey' feature might not be everyone's cup of sexy tea, but leading lady Dakota Johnson would like to at least attempt to change the minds of potential viewers who don't think that anything—yes, anything—can be sexy with the right attitude. On last night's 'Tonight Show,' Johnson was tasked with reading off a series of decidedly unsexy lines, including stuff about Chapstick (?) and sweatpants (?) in an attempt to make them alluring.
Thank goodness for iPad apps. On last night's 'Tonight Show,' host Jimmy Fallon -- who grows more California by the minute, as the show has temporarily relocated to the West Coast -- and guest Will Smith decided to finally give the people what they want: rapping. Well, sort of.
Well, almost the entire cast. 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon is really get into Los Angeles living during this week's sojourn to the land of sun and fun, and no ode to California would be complete without a loving nod to the ultimate Cali show: 'Saved By the Bell.'
Sigh. 'The Tonight Show' temporarily moves to Los Angeles -- Hollywood, Tinsel Town, The Big Grapefruit, only one of those is a real nickname -- and is suddenly just flooded with random star power. Zzzzz.
Here's the natural progression of any good celebrity impersonation: inception. 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon enjoys dabbling in a good star impression from time to time, especially as it applies to musicians -- the guy loves to sing! and he's pretty good at aping famous voices! -- including folk hero Neil Young.
It's okay if all you really want out of life is for Chris "Star-Lord" Pratt and Chris "Captain America" Evans to be best pals. We want that, too. You know who else wants that? Jimmy Fallon. And the Super Bowl. And everyone else in the entire world.
