I Wish It Was Christmas Today 2018

If you’re a loyal viewer of Saturday Night Live like yours truly, then you already know the charming original holiday tune “I Wish It Was Christmas Today,” which Jimmy Fallon, Horatio Sanz, Chris Kattan and Tracy Morgan performed for the first time back in December 2000. The song became a favorite among SNL fans, so much that it’s been performed over half a dozen times on the show since then, and even recording artist Julian Casablacans did his own cover of the song. Well, it’s back again, but not on SNL.

Instead, Jimmy Fallon got the band back together for a Saturday Night Live holiday reunion on The Tonight Show, and he included Ariana Grande just for good measure. And don’t worry, because her presence doesn’t ruin the purity of this modern Christmas classic. You’ll see what I mean below.

Almost Famous Alternate Titles

If you don’t love Almost Famous as much as most of the staff of /Film does, then you might not know that the original title for the film was Untitled. If you watch “The Bootleg Cut” (or director’s cut) that was released on DVD back in 2001 and re-released on Blu-ray in 2011, you’ll see the real title appear, as it was preferred by director Cameron Crowe (who is the one doing the handwritten opening credits as well).

Before the title Almost Famous was settled upon, there was a time when Cameron Crowe was trying to figure out what else he could call the movie, since Untitled was not the most desirable name for the studio to sell. One person who tried to help Cameron Crowe figure out a satisfying alternate title was supporting star Jimmy Fallon, and the director recently revealed the full list of options he was presented with by the man who would go on to host The Tonight Show.

Jimmy Fallon Hosted Saturday Night Live

Last night, Saturday Night Live went live coast-to-coast for the first time in the show’s 42-year history with host Jimmy Fallon. The late night sketch series seems anxious to capitalize on all the buzz their political satire has been getting lately with all the Donald Trump presidency fueling the writers room for a couple sketches each week, and they want everyone to experience the show at the same time rather than having half the country on a tape delay.

Though last night’s episode did offer some amusing moments lampooning the headlines that came from the White House this week, SNL was strongest with their non-political sketches, and that’s despite the fact that both Alec Baldwin and Melissa McCarthy returned as Donald Trump and Sean Spicer respectively. In fact, the best sketch mocked another headline-making even that had nothing to do with politics at all.

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.
