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.

Jake Gyllenhaal played Slapjack Tuesday night on "The Tonight Show" -- perfect for the boxing star of "Southpaw" -- but his "uncouth" back-scratching interview was even more fun. First, here's the Slapjack game:

Now to the classic interview. Not sure if you saw the photo, but Jake got called out by the paparazzi for scratching his back with a fork; this was deemed "uncouth,", so -- on "The Tonight Show" -- Jake responded. "Come on.

You no have people holding up many card to make one big picture. You no have Dennis Rodman”) and

TV on Tap: Madison Hildebrand Leaves “Million Dollar Listing,” AMC Renews “Turn” and the Need for Guilt-Free Camp


Gordon Ramsay is ending Kitchen Nightmares, both the U.S. and UK versions. I liked the idea of Kitchen Nightmares, if not the way the show turned out.

In his time on the show, we followed him as he came to terms with his sexuality.
