Lena Dunham and Jimmy Fallon

Earlier this week, Girls creator/star Lena Dunham appeared on The Tonight Show where she and Jimmy Fallon discussed the fact that they both used to work at video rental stores in New York. Lena Dunham and Jimmy Fallon have a fun discussion about video rental store clerks and also a long discussion about their love for the 1991 coming-of-age “classic” Man in the Moon starring Reese Witherspoon and is it Jeremy or Jason London (its actually Jason). While I don’t have fond memories for this movie, I appreciate the film fandom Fallon and Dunham show in this geekfest. Watch the video clip new embedded after the jump.

Let it go with Jimmy Fallon Idina Menzel

Idina Menzel‘s Oscar performance of Let It Go was overshadowed by John Travolta’s “Adele Dazeem” mishap, but she hass quickly refocused attention on the song. The star of Frozen appeared on The Tonight Show to perform the popular ‘Let it Go’ with Jimmy Fallon. Better yet, they did it as one of Fallon’s signature bits. He occasionally adapts songs with his house band, The Roots, playing children’s instruments such as xylophones, triangles, tiny keyboards and more. That’s what happened last night. Check it out below. Read More »

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

If you tuned into Jimmy Fallon‘s debut as host of NBC’s The Tonight Show last night, you caught Spike Lee‘s latest project without even realizing it. The filmmaker directed the opening title sequence, which means, as Fallon happily put it, that “our show opens with a Spike Lee joint.”

The choice of Lee couldn’t be more appropriate as Fallon’s premiere also marked the return of The Tonight Show to New York City after four decades in Los Angeles. Watch the sequence after the jump.

Joking Bad

As criminal masterminds go, a late night host with six months left (on the show, that is, not in life) selling his jokes on the black market doesn’t sound all that evil. But then again, we once sympathized with a terminally ill chemistry teacher making meth to provide for his family, too. Nowadays, that guy is a total monster.

True, joke-selling is somewhat less likely to result in slit throats, explosions, and poisoned people, but as Jimmy Fallon‘s Breaking Bad parody Joking Bad shows, it does come with some terrifying consequences of its own. Watch the video after the jump. Do be warned that some spoilers follow, if you’re not caught up through the first half of Season 5.

Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon

Briefly: We don’t cover much late-night TV, but The Tonight Show is an institution and a changing of the guard at the show is a big deal. Negotiations have been taking place for quite some time to end Jay Leno‘s run as host of the show, with Jimmy Fallon taking his place.

Now we know that Leno’s last night as host will be February 6 2014 — that’s the night before NBC begins coverage of the Winter Olympics. Fallon’s debut as Tonight Show host will broadcast after that Olympic coverage ends. Since the last day of the Olympics is February 23, we’ll likely see Fallon as host by the end of that month. And so end’s Leno’s tenure as perhaps the friendliest, safest voice in late-night TV. He’s also one of the most popular, as Variety notes, holding the top ratings position in his time slot for the second quarter in 2013. That makes the changeover — the second time Leno has lost the chair, after a weird and short-lived swap with Conan O’Brien in 2009 — a bit unusual.

Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon

Here we go again. NBC has officially announced that Jimmy Fallon will replace Jay Leno as the host of The Tonight Show, as has been rumored for months. The only surprise, if you can even call it that, is when the changeover will take place — spring 2014, instead of summer or fall 2014 as previously believed. The transition will also mark The Tonight Show‘s move back to New York City, forty years after Johnny Carson took it to Burbank, California.
