Barely letting Fallon have a word in edgewise, Stern (who was once rumored to replace Fallon) told him right out of the gate that he was so happy to see longtime nemesis Jay Leno leave the job, he would have been just as happy to see Mahmoud Ahmadinejad or Charles Manson host "The Tonight Show." He also gave some tips to The Roots, questioned whether Jimmy is actually gay and told him that he likes Jimmy Kimmel more than him.
All in all, classic Stern. Check out the clip above to see him not hold anything back. »

Jimmy Fallon kicked off Video Game Week on "Late Night" with a segment called "Do Not Game," where Fallon goes through some video games from throughout the years that should not have been made, much less played.
For instance, did you know the wings/boobs chain restaurant Hooters once had a game for PlayStation? Yep, that's a thing that happened. »

Neil Patrick Harris has already lined up his next high-profile gig once the series finale of How I Met Your Mother airs later this year - he's Broadway-bound. The singing and dancing triple threat, who hosted the Tony Awards for the fourth time on June 9 (to great reviews), is set to don a wig, dress and high heels for his role as a German transgender rock singer in spring 2014's first Broadway production of the musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which features a book by John Cameron Mitchell and music and lyrics by Stephen Trask.

Was Father’s Day ever celebrated before Kanye West became a dad this weekend? If you ask Twitter (or Kanye himself, for that matter), the answer is a resounding no.
The perfectly timed arrival of Baby Kimye, on Father’s Day Eve, has given the Internet a lot to work with. Jimmy Fallon got the Kanye Dad’s Day tweets started with this gem:
Happy Father’s Day to my dad and also to my biological father @kanyewest. #HappyFathersDay— jimmy fallon (@jimmyfallon) June 16, 2013
And the late-night host clearly inspired the masses. Here are some of our favorite “Happy Father’s Day, »

Justin Bieber’s tweets were the subject of a funny experiment by Jimmy Fallon and one of his "Late Night" writers, Arthur Meyer. After noticing the crazy amount of retweets The Biebs gets for innocuous posts such as "having fun," Fallon instructed Meyer to mimic the singer's tweets on his own account and see how many retweets he could get. Check out the video here to see what happened! »

Joan Rivers knows a thing or two about what makes someone a great host of The Tonight Show. The E! star was mentored by six-time Emmy award winning host Johnny Carson, who hired her as writer on The Tonight Show, and served as his guest host in the early '80s. So yes, Rivers knows what it takes to be a great late night host! So what does the outspoken Fashion Police star, who is celebrating her 80th birthday, think of Jimmy Fallon taking over for Jay Leno in 2014? "I think Jimmy Fallon—and I said it was from the first time I went on his show—he has got everything that Carson has," Rivers exclusively tells E! News. "He is bright, he is smart, and he is...he is a fan. He is happy to »
The inspiration for the governor's "Slow Jam the News" performance was the special election coming up in New Jersey to fill a vacant Senate seat. While important, this news is not terribly interesting. That is, it's not interesting until accompanied by the smooth sounds of a slow jam.
"Chris Christie's about to give New Jersey a huge election." This shouldn't sound dirty. But it does.Governor Chris Christie has very expressive eyebrows.It's important to include the Nsa in all late-night jokes this week. "The Luv Guv." All politicians should aspire to this title.Jimmy Fallon managed to sneak in a "Yo Mama" joke. That's both random and impressive.The sideways look »
This story first appeared in the June 21 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. What a year for late night! The beleagured Tonight show landed its (latest) heir apparent in Jimmy Fallon, and reigning ratings king Jay Leno got kinda cool for a hot minute. Jimmy Kimmel jumped ahead an hour and shocked with an impressive debut that topped Leno's ratings and those of Kimmel's hero, David Letterman. Emmy darling Jon Stewart, winner of the variety statuette 10 years running, saw his show outperform those of his fellow cablers once again. But it's the 10 hosts' hottest viral moments -- ranked here -- that are making the race

Back in the summer of 2012, one of comedy’s biggest names found a new home for himself: the Internet. And now he’s back for more.
On Thursday afternoon, Jerry Seinfeld — the man synonymous with sponge-worthiness, close talkers, and pretty much any television comedy catchphrase in the late ’90s — will unveil the first episode of the new season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. The show’s title is very literal: Each episode pairs Seinfeld with another comedian, puts them in a cool old car, and features a conversation over caffeinated beverages.
The concept is simple, but the results are often thrilling. »

Tim Tebow signing with the New England Patriots may be freaking a lot of people out, but there's at least one cause for serious celebration: the opportunity for Tebowie to return with a new song.
On Wednesday's "Late Night," Jimmy Fallon reprised his hybrid Tebow/David Bowie character and rocked out with a song all about the embattled quarterback's new gig. Take a look at Fallon performing "Tebow Tebow" (a spoof of Bowie's "Rebel Rebel") above and let us know what your favorite Tebowie song is so far. »

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has been taking some serious heat for his decision to hold a special election to fill the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg’s (D-nj) seat. So there was really only one way for him to properly communicate his reasoning to voters. Christie followed in his good friend President Obama's footsteps Wednesday night and Slow Jammed The News with Jimmy Fallon. »
- Matt Wilstein
The New Jersey governor stopped by "Late Night" on Wednesday to perform guest vocals on Fallon's trademark bit, Slow Jam the News. Christie used the opportunity to explain his wisdom in calling for an October 16 election to fill the Senate seat vacated by the late Frank Lautenberg, which was met with much criticism and a lawsuit for potentially being confusing for voters.
As in all the Slow Jam the News segments, Fallon coos R&B style interludes underneath the wonky political explanation, backed with a slow groove from house band The Roots. Typically, Fallon's NBC colleague Brian Williams delivers the news, but Obama did it once during his 2012 campaign.
Check out the clip above, where Christie jokes about the Senate vacancy, his weight and his chances of running for president in 2016. »

There's an old saying that goes, "Everything is funnier when people have mannequin arms," and it couldn't be more true. In the latest installment of "Real People, Fake Arms," Jimmy Fallon and Seth Rogen reminisce about their time as co-stars on "Jacob's Patience" and then give us a taste of the magic that once was.

Season 2 of "Vikings" is scheduled to go into production in the summer for a premiere in early 2014.
More TV news and notes:
- John Oliver's debut as host of "The Daily Show" drew ratings in line with the show's average. Monday's (June 10) show scored 1.5 million viewers and a 0.7 rating among adults 18-49, compared to 1.3 million and 0.6 the previous Monday.
Aside from the obvious host-name swap, the late-night NBC staple will replace the “With” in its title and will go by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon – harkening back to when Johnny Carson was emcee.
In other news, Late Night writer Amy Ozols has joined the program as a producer.

Veteran "Late Night" writer Amy Ozols has been named producer of the upcoming "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," executive producer Lorne Michaels announced Tuesday. And yes, that's correct; when Fallon takes the reins of the long-running NBC show, it will be rechristened "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon." The current "Tonight Show" incarnation, which Jay Leno hosts, is titled "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno." Under Leno's predecessor Johnny Carson, the show was titled "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson." "Amy Ozols has been with Jimmy since the very beginning of 'Late Night.' »
