Last night, Hollywood got drunk as hell and received Golden Globes from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. You can get the full list of the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards winners right here, but if you missed the ceremony last night, then you missed out on a rather delightful opening musical number led by ceremony host Jimmy Fallon.
Inspired by several of the musical sequences from La La Land, the opening number features Jimmy Fallon and a long line of Hollywood’s finest singing and dancing through all the big movies and TV shows of 2016. And for all you Stranger Things fans out there, you’ll be happy to see one of your favorite characters make a surprise comeback.

Sing is the latest animated comedy from Illumination Entertainment, and it’s in theaters now. If somehow after the onslaught of musically charged TV spots that have been all over the place this holiday season you weren’t aware of that, here’s another reminder.
The voice cast of Sing (including Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Seth MacFarlane and Tori Kelly) appeared on The Tonight Show to perform an a cappella version of Paul McCartney‘s signature holiday tune “Wonderful Christmastime” with the help of Jimmy Fallon and The Roots. Oh, and the former member of The Beatles popped up to help out too.

Universal Studios‘ greatest gift may also be its greatest curse. While Disney theme parks move at a notoriously slow pace, Universal creative is constantly on the ball, updating their parks and adding new attractions and viewing almost nothing as a sacred cow. The result: parks that are constantly evolving, pushing the envelope, and giving visitors something new to experience, like the warmly received Skull Island: Reign of Kong. It also means attractions like the upcoming Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon, a ride concept that feels like the result of accountants and market testing more than anything else.
And yet, here I am, eagerly looking at the new details Universal has released about their new Jimmy Fallon ride. Because even when the subject matter isn’t my cup of tea, a new Universal Studios ride always has my attention.

Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer were promising “justice for Barb” in season two before Netflix even got around to confirming there’d be a season two. But it looks like Jimmy Fallon beat the Duffers to the punch. In a Tonight Show parody, Barb returns to the Wheelers’ basement to give Mike, Eleven, and the rest of the gang a piece of her mind. Turns out she’s none too pleased about how things went down last season.
Watch the Jimmy Fallon Stranger Things parody below. Be warned there are MAJOR SPOILERS ahead for season one. Read More »
Some people wonder why Saturday Night Live is still a program that is put together in just a week when the comedy that comes from the show can be so hit or miss. For superfans of the show like myself, that’s actually one of the most exciting aspects of the show. It’s impressive to see what this talented group of people can put together in such a short amount of time, and no one makes show like this anywhere else on television.
Another fun element of the live aspect of the show is that anything can happen while it’s on the air, and that includes cast members “breaking” in the middle of a scene. Sometimes the SNL cast members just can’t help but laugh at themselves or their co-stars and they break the reality of the scene. Usually it just results in the sketch getting funnier, and the audience always loves to see it happen. Now you can relive some of the best moments of breaking from SNL with a couple supercuts spanning decades of sketches. Read More »
Even people who aren’t Star Wars fans know the iconic fanfare that begins every single movie. The same can be said for the iconic Imperial March used to signify the arrival of the Empire and Darth Vader. And now thanks to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, his house band The Roots, and the primary cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we have an awesome a capella version of those iconic themes that’s presented like the opening credits of The Brady Bunch, but a hell of a lot cooler. Watch! Read More »
In July 2015, we reported a rumor that Universal Studios Orlando was planning a new motion simulator ride to replace Twister which would take place in the mind of Jimmy Fallon on the set of The Tonight Show. Well, the report was mostly right. The new attraction will replace Twister…Ride It Out and will star Jimmy Fallon. Learn the details now after the jump.

This weekend brings the latest drama from Steven Spielberg, the Cold War-set Bridge of Spies, marking the director’s fourth collaboration with Tom Hanks. The filmmaker and star have both been making the publicity rounds to get butts in seats at theaters this weekend, and as usual, Hanks had some fun on the late night circuit with Jimmy Fallon.
Over on The Tonight Show, the recurring segment Kid Theater made a return with Tom Hanks and Jimmy Fallon acting out Bridge of Spies as written by kids. All the little tykes were given was the title of the movie, and Hanks and Fallon act out a short script of whatever the kids thought the movie was about based on that. It’s adorable and hilarious.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve heard about a variety of plans by Nickelodeon to cash in on all the nostalgia being felt by children of the 90s for all the programming they used to watch on the kids’ cable network. There’s been talk of reviving some of the fan favorite Nicktoons in some capacity, a live-action/animated hybrid movie at Paramount and 90s programming block called The Splat coming in October. Yes, nostalgia for a decade that ended just 15 years ago is alive and well.
Now The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon wanted to get in on all the 90s fun by having a Good Burger reunion, featuring the return of Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell, who originated these exact same characters on the Nickelodeon sketch show All That, which was basically Saturday Night Live for kids.

Despite the recent additions of Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley, a lot of the earlier attractions and experiences at Universal Studios Orlando feel dated. And it seems like the Universal Orlando mandate is to replace a lot of the older attractions with new experiences (I hope they decide to refurbish and update E.T. Adventure rather than replace it entirely). The latest rumor is that the Twister…Ride it Out attraction will be replaced with a ride that will take us inside the mind of Jimmy Fallon. So essentially they would be replacing an old attraction based on a 1990’s movie with an experience ride based on a 2015 late night television series. More details, after the jump.
