Step aside, gals of “Pitch Perfect 2” — the boys are taking over acapella duties for an evening. Jimmy Fallon‘s barbershop quartet, The Ragtime Gals, brought in a ringer for Friday night’s “Tonight Show”: Sting. Together as a five-piece, the fellas killed it on the former Police frontman’s hit “Roxanne.” Good luck in September against this sort of thing, Stephen Colbert.

Real comedy still happens on late night, we can prove it. If you like Conan comedy gold, Fallon friendliness, cutesy Corden, list-making Letterman, kneedy Kimmel, and all the rest, I hope you’ll enjoy this column too.

Last night on late night, there was no Letterman. Conan gave his staff at “Conaco” a performance review, Jimmy Fallon talked to Dwayne Johnson and Meghan Trainor, Kimmel talked goombahs and gangsters with Ray Liotta, and Seth Meyers talked Kangaroo parts with Heidi Klum.

22 May 2015 10:43 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

As students across the country prepare to say goodbye to their beloved high school years, Jimmy Fallon and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson have teamed up to deliver a commencement speech - 1989 style. In this sketch from The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the host and the San Andreas star don wigs to play the two students with the lowest GPAs who are inexplicably given the stage to advise their fellow graduates. They're basically a couple of dummies who aspire to be "this generation's O.J. Simpson." The speech is full of '80s references, retro song lyrics, and The Rock looking suspicious.

22 May 2015 8:44 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

So many whippersnappers are eagerly waiting for their lives to commence this month, but what about those of us who graduated the year Taylor Swift was born? Jimmy Fallon and Dwayne Johnson go back to that John Hughes era and drop some wisdom as two students with a combined 16 years of high-school experience.

Jimmy Fallon and Dwayne Johnson's Commencement Speech in 1989 Is the Worst Graduation Speech Ever—Watch!

22 May 2015 4:55 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Who better to deliver a graduation speech than high school students with the two lowest GPAs, besides, well, anyone? In a sketch that aired on NBC's The Tonight Show Thursday, Jimmy Fallon and Dwayne Johnson played two graduating seniors whose commencement speech offered little practical advice for the future. Speaking at Oneonta High School, home of the Yellowjackets, BFFs Bobby Ristick (Fallon) and Logan Duffy (Johnson)—a.k.a. Dufftron 3000—wanted to "offer some words of wisdom" to the class of 1989. What made them qualified? "We've learned a lot over our eight years at this high school," Bobby said. "First off, focus on the future," Logan told his fellow classmates. »

Best of Late Night TV: Dwayne Johnson's Graduation Speech and Heidi Klum's Kangaroo Balls

21 May 2015 11:46 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

"The Tonight Show" has been bringing their A-game in the skit department lately, and this week Jimmy Fallon and Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock) delivered a circa 1989 graduation speech. The catch? They're the two lowest GPAs in class. Advice for fellow grads includes "don't get caught up in fads that won't last like 'computers,'" and "the future is now...well, actually now's the present." Getting inspirational tattoos in 3...2...1...

Apparently, Heidi Klum is known for giving her friends super weird presents, and she gifted Seth Meyers a kangaroo scrotum bottle opener from Australia. No further comment, just watch the clip. (Also, for all the kangaroos watching, this is Nsfw. »

‘Red Nose Day': Live Fundraiser Blends Star Pitches, Comedy Performances

21 May 2015 9:41 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Do something funny for money” was the slogan of NBC’s inaugural “Red Nose Day” telecast, a live three-hour show that helped raise more than $21 million to aid children living in poverty in the U.S. and abroad.

The telecast that originated Thursday from New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom went off with only a few minor hitches that were probably not visible to the viewing audience at home.

Seth Meyers, David Duchovny and Jane Krakowski each hosted an hour of the program that blended pitches from stars such as Julianne Moore, Olivia Wilde and Gwenyth Paltrow with taped comedy segments produced by Funny or Die and in-studio bits from “Saturday Night Live’s” Colin Jost, Michael Che and Jay Pharaoh, as well as Billy Eichner and Josh Groban.

In between the entertainment, short films featuring celebrity appeals on behalf of specific causes struck a serious note. Jack Black traveled »

Last Night on Late Night, 5/20/15: Dave retires

21 May 2015 2:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Real comedy still happens on late night, we can prove it. If you like Conan comedy gold, Fallon friendliness, cutesy Corden, list-making Letterman, kneedy Kimmel, and all the rest, I hope you’ll enjoy this column too.

Last night was David Letterman’s last time ever hosting a late night program. Other late night hosts gave thanks, and Dave looked back at some favorite memories, with music by the Foo Fighters. If you can gauge which other hosts/networks like Dave the most based on who begged the audience to switch over to CBS, it’s Kimmel and Conan. Kimmel didn’t even air a live show last night, and Conan got Patton Oswalt to make enough references to Halloween 3 and The Andromeda Strain that everyone was forced to tune out.

In the hilarious sketch, Jimmy called upon Jeff Foxworthy, the host of former game show Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?, to test his elementary-school-level knowledge. Jimmy went up against Pitbull, and the two battled it out with their much younger teammates.

Real comedy still happens on late night, we can prove it. If you like Conan comedy gold, Fallon friendliness, cutesy Corden, list-making Letterman, kneedy Kimmel, and all the rest, I hope you’ll enjoy this column too.

David Letterman Farewell: Fans, TV Crews Gather Outside for Final Show

20 May 2015 10:27 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Crowds and TV camera crews have camped out in front of the Ed Sullivan Theater in Manhattan as David Letterman prepares for the taping of tonight’s final edition of “The Late Show.”

The streets outside the theater at Broadway and 53rd Street were clogged with news vans and fans who came to snap pictures of the “Late Show With David Letterman” marquee. There were enterprising efforts to capitalize on the moment — one man brought an easel and offered to sell his oil painting of the famed blue-and-gold marquee. Another group was hawking black and white “Letterman’s Final Show” T-shirts across the street from the theater.

Details of the plan for tonight’s show have been kept tightly under wraps. By noon, “Late Show” crew members — wearing team jackets emblazoned with “Thank You and Goodnight” and the number 15 — were busy working out of two trailers parked on 53rd Street, »

Watch Jamie Foxx's Perfect John Legend Impression on 'Tonight Show'

20 May 2015 10:02 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Grammy and Oscar winner Jamie Foxx flexed both his musical and comedic talents while partaking in a game of "Wheel of Musical Impressions" on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.

The late-night talk show's game has Fallon and his guest hitting a button to get a random pairing of a famous singer with a jingle, TV show theme or children's song. Foxx started off the game by singing The Lion King's "Hakuna Matata" in the style of Mick Jagger, strutting across the stage and perfectly imitating the Rolling Stones' singer's flamboyant swagger. »

Seth Meyers paid tribute to retiring late-night host David Letterman on Tuesday night by kicking off NBC’s “Late Night” with a shot-for-shot recreation of the opening sequence the show used in 1982 when Letterman launched it. “And now a man who knows that it’s Letterman’s show, and he’s just borrowing it,” the announcer says at the end of the sequence before introducing Meyers. Meyers’ nod to Letterman was one of many from other late-night comedians, including Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Jon Stewart.

David Letterman Uses Last Days To Strike New Chord With Music

20 May 2015 9:47 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

 This is the sound of David Letterman retiring.

Over the last few weeks, viewers of the veteran latenight host’s “Late Show” on CBS have been treated to a series of once-in-a-lifetime musical moments: John Mayer crooning Don McLean’s “American Pie”; Tracy Chapman doing a stark rendition of Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me”; John Fogerty doing a punky mashup of his Creedence Clearwater Revival hits; and an enigmatic Bob Dylan crooning the standard “The Night We Called It A Day,” an appropriate shout-out to a TV figure who will make his last “Late Show” appearance during a late-afternoon taping Wednesday. And, in a nod to Letterman’s stated fondness for acerbic songwriter Warren Zevon, the show has in its final days featured a rendition of “Mutineer” by Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires and a digital-only take on “Desperadoes Under The Eaves” by Dawes.

Latenight Ratings: Viewers Flocking to David Letterman’s Final Shows

20 May 2015 9:28 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS’ “The Late Show with David Letterman” is carrying some ratings momentum into tonight’s finale, with Monday and Tuesday’s hours drawing some of the show’s best numbers in years.

Last night’s penultimate telecast, with guests Bill Murray and Bob Dylan, averaged a 4.9 household rating/12 share in Nielsen’s metered-market overnights — the show’s top rating since September 2009. It was up 48% from last Tuesday (3.3/9) and more than double the year-ago score (2.0/5).

And on Monday of this week, “Late Show with David Letterman” did a 4.1/11 in the overnights, a 37% improvement over last week (3.0/8), a 78% surge over last year (2.3/6).

On both nights, “Late Show” was No. 1 among latenight talkshows in the overnight household ratings, though NBC’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” held a slight edge among adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with Local People Meters.

As expected, the final nights of Letterman on CBS have helped boost recent latenight addition James Corden. »

Jamie Foxx Does Impressions of Jennifer Hudson, John Legend and Mick Jagger on The Tonight Show—Watch!

20 May 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jamie Foxx has some mad singing skills! And moves like Jagger. The 47-year-old actor showcased several impressions of top music artists on NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, channeling the likes of Jennifer Hudson, John Legend and Mick Jagger while playing "Wheel of Musical Impressions" with host Jimmy Fallon. First, he did his best impersonation of the Rolling Stones frontman singing "Hakuna Matata" from The Lion King. He then turned on the romance with a smooth, rather nonchalant impression of Legend singing...the Toys"R"Us jingle. Now, the question is, will Legend reciprocate? But it was Foxx's rendition of Hudson belting out a »
