Last week saw an unusual interruption in Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show, as the host canceled a week’s worth of shows over a reported family emergency. Fallon’s mother Gloria had passed on November 4, for which the normally-goofy comedian returned Monday night with a heartfelt address of his most beloved audience member.
Star Wars Day always brings us new ways to appreciate the galaxy far, far away. This year we got a gift from some clever editors at ‘The Tonight Show,’ who managed to string together clips from all eight Star Wars movies (‘Rogue One’ included) to re-create the first verse of Smash Mouth’s “All Star.” If that sounds like it shouldn’t work at all, we agree.
But it does.
As October approaches a midway, we’ve comfortably settled into a late-night landscape that sees Stephen Colbert taking over The Late Show for David Letterman, and well after Jay Leno finally abandoned The Tonight Show to Jimmy Fallon. That hasn’t stopped the old guard from feuding now and again, as it seems Leno pointedly refused to take part in Letterman’s final CBS sendoff.
Announcements of Stephen Colbert’s first Late Show guests have fans admiring the dedication to a diverse range of non-celebrities, and Jimmy Fallon’s broader Tonight Show will surely feel the heat before long.

The 'Men, Women & Children' actress hit 'The Tonight Show' last night to chat about a variety of things -- from her new film to, oops, that one time her entire family got head lice -- but she really hit her stride when it was time to play Catchphrase with host Jimmy Fallon.
If you're going to have only one Facebook friend, it might as well be Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg. While it's unclear how many stars have Facebook profiles lovingly crafted by the Zuck himself, Andy Samberg has one, and he shared the story of its creation on last night's 'The Tonight Show' with a gobsmacked Jimmy Fallon. We're jealous.
Here is just a small sample of some of the topics Nicolas Cage covered in a fast-talking, quickly moving, and oddly satisfying interview with Jimmy Fallon on 'The Tonight Show' last night: childhood Kiss performances, if it's cool we know what the Kiss guys look like without make-up, life insurance, (almost) dying while surfing, a tiny sculpture Jim Carrey made of him, a lizard wearing a top hat -
