It all started a few months back when Tom Hanks did a Full House-themed poetry slam on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Not only was it brilliantly executed by the actor, but it was incredibly well written and very funny. You all had to know it was just a matter of time before we got [&hellip

On Tuesday, Funny or Die premiered a video of Zach Galifianakis interviewing President Obama in a Between Two Ferns sketch where Obama plugged Healthcare.gov. On Wednesday, traffic to the healthcare site has increased 40 percent.
White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett went on CBS’ This Morning earlier to share the news of the video’s success. “The fact that the website traffic has gone up is really an indication that it’s working.” Look at that, viral videos changing lives!
Obama’s appearance on Galifianakis’ wacky series wasn’t the first time the president — or first lady Michelle — has used »

It's another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed U.S. YouTube Channels and Katy Perry rode on a dark horse to the top. Chart Toppers Katy Perry's latest music video release of her single "Dark Horse" bumped her up from the #4 spot in the U.S. last week to the top of the charts in a very big way. The international pop star's single (which was not without its fair share of controversy, which undoubtedly added to its eight-figure view count) helped contribute to her YouTube channel's nearly 77.8 million weekly views. In second place is Jimmy Fallon and his now eponymous Tonight Show. The former star of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon had a fantastic inaugural week in his new time slot racking up over 46.5 million views in the last seven days. Up next is Shakira, whose recent release of Can't Remember To Forget »

There's always a time and place for nostalgia, but when it comes to movies from the 1980s, it goes beyond that. Throughout the decade, we hit cinematic milestone after cinematic milestone, with franchises being born that still resonate and fuel the box office today, some three decades removed. We can look at 2014 and see some good movies on the horizon. But when we look back at a year like 1984, its breathtaking to see how many seminal pieces of pop culture were born into existence. 1982 is sometimes called the greatest year for genre movies of all time, with an eye on science fiction. But 1984 goes maybe a step beyond that. These 12 months were jam packed with truly timeless classics. You may be awestruck staring at what came exactly 30 years ago. Nothing has quite topped it for sheer year-round, non-stop entertainment. These are 30 great movies that are turning 30 in 2014!

I thought since you guys seemed to enjoy the last couple of lip sync battles that took place on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, which is now officially The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon that I would share the latest one. This time around, Fallon decided to battle it out against Paul Rudd. One can only imagine what Rudd.s musical picks would be. After seeing the past couple of battles, I realized that I couldn.t choose. But I guess that.s part of what makes it so special. You.ll get a kick »

When it comes to late-night TV, Kanye West likes to show up in a big way. From his performance of “Bound 2″ on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” to his visually arresting “SNL” performance last year, the 36 year-old has a knack for delivering big, powerful moments on the talk show circuit and Tuesday night was no exception.
Seth Meyers’ second episode of “Late Night” featured a 10-minute interview with West, who discussed his recent “Yeezus” tour, fashion, the “College Dropout” album and fatherhood, among other things.
“It would be great if you owned a fashion company and could support me,” Kanye joked, to which Meyers replied, “I’m pretty happy, I just got a talk show.”
Later, the rapper performed a career-spanning medley featuring “Jesus Walks”, “Touch the Sky”, “Stronger”, “Heartless”, “All of the Lights”, “Mercy”, and “Black Skinhead.”

It easily bested CBS’ “Late Show With David Letterman” (0.6 rating in adults 18-49, 2.59 million viewers overall) and ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (0.5 in 18-49, 2.44 million).

Ronan Farrow took to MSNBC Monday to demonstrate his access to big-name guests, his facility with complex topics of global import and, subtly, to toss cold water on the idea that his family affairs might become part of his program’s daily conversation.
Anyone tuning in to “Ronan Farrow Daily” hoping its nicely pedigreed host would address his or his sister Dylan’s relationship with their estranged father Woody Allen was likely disappointed. But those who expected the network’s usual dose of progressive finger-wagging may have walked away surprised: The host of MSNBC’s new 1 p.m. program steered the show away from anything salacious or argumentative in favor of something more reasoned and intelligent.
Over the course of an hour, Farrow demonstrated a detached, bemused stance toward the stories he presented. He didn’t appear to be a cheerleader for a particular cause (a slip made by more seasoned MSNBC host Alex Wagner, »

As expected, the visit by First Lady Michelle Obama gave The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon a bump, with the broadcast drawing a 5.3 household rating in the metered markets, up a tenth from Wednesday. In comparison, both Conan O’Brien and Jay Leno saw their ratings steadily decline every night during their first week starting/returning to The Tonight Show in 2009/2010. What’s more, Fallon’s ratings have been steady after the second-night drop from the 7.1 for the premiere: 5.3, 5.2, 5.3. Interestingly, Fallon accomplished a similar feat during the premiere week of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, with his Thursday household rating (2.0) rising from Wednesday (1.8) to match the Tuesday performance. Tonight once again dwarfed the late-night broadcast competition, though ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live (2.0 in households) was up 25% from Wednesday with the “Wolf in Sochi” hoax, while CBS’ Late Show With David Letterman (2.0) was down 9%. In the markets with Local People Meters, »

This sketch is so not "Ew!"One of our favorite sketches from "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" made the big move to "The Tonight Show" on Thursday, with the host once again dressing up as one of the most unfortunate-looking teenage girls ever, Sara. That's with no H, because H's are "Ew!"And while Channing Tatum and Lindsay Lohan have joined him in the past, last night he brought out the big guns: Will Ferrell and First Lady Michelle Obama.Ferrell was hilarious as always, also dressing in drag to play Sara's Bff Stacy, another teen who gets intimate with her new Harry Styles poster.As for Obama, she played herself, pushing her health initiative on the two young "girls."We gotta say, just hearing her say "Ew" made this six-minute clip worth it for us.Jimmy's been having a blockbuster debut week on "The Tonight Show."

First Lady Michelle Obama, appearing on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” during its premiere week, went a step further than merely a sit down interview and appeared in a sketch where Fallon and Will Ferrell appeared as adolescent girls hosting a TV show called “Ew!”
The first lady mainly played it straight as Fallon and Ferrell, in drag, spoofed teenage girls’ quirks. When she appeared on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” last year, she danced with Fallon, in a skit called “Evolution of Mom Dancing” that became a viral hit. She also danced in Thursday’s sketch, albeit briefly, while devoting many of her lines to promotion of healthy eating and exercise. Her Let’s Move initiative has been one of her signature campaigns as first lady.
Later, when being interviewed by Fallon, she talked about their daughters’ own adolescence, quipping that even though their father is president, “they »

Jimmy Fallon may have topped himself on Wednesday’s “Tonight Show” when he presented perhaps the magnum opus of “Brian Williams Raps The News” mashups, with the NBC Nightly News anchor taking on Sugar Hill Gang’s Rapper’s Delight — and what a delight it was. See video: Brian Williams Raps Snoop Dogg Compliments of ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ While Fallon has previously mashed-up the newsman rapping Snoop Dogg, Warren G and Nwa classics, tonight’s rendition of Rapper’s Delight might have have them all beat.

Jimmy Fallon engendered a lot of good will during his time hosting Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and it looks like that will carry over to his new gig hosting The Tonight Show. It feels like a fresh start that has a good chance of luring a younger audience, or at least an audience that will likely tune in to check out clips the following morning. For example, during last night's show, Fallon was welcomed by a string of cameos including Robert De Niro, Tina Fey, Seth Rogen, and most notably, Joan Rivers, who was banned by Johnny Carson from The Tonight Show in 1986. Fallon also had a fun bit where he and Will Smith showed off the Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing. Hit the jump to check out the videos. The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 11:35pm Est on NBC. »

Fallon had a 7.1 rating in the overnight metered-market household ratings Monday night, which was higher rated than all but two of last week’s prime-time non-Olympic programs on NBC’s rivals and up 48 percent from the Feb. 7 finale of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. That also ties for the second-highest Tonight Show overnight rating since 2009 (Leno’s last telecast before Conan O’Brien took over) and also tied O »

Update: The debut of NBC’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” averaged a 3.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 11.31 million viewers overall in Nielsen’s fast-national estimates released Tuesday by Nielsen. This is the second biggest audience for “Tonight” since May 2009, behind only Leno’s final episodes of “Tonight” (14.64 million on Feb. 6, and the 11.90 million who watched in May 2009 as the show transitioned to Conan O’Brien).
Compared to the “Tonight” season average on Mondays, Fallon’s debut was up 182% in total viewers (11.31 million vs. 4.01 million).
A new era in latenight television commenced on Monday, with NBC’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” easily keeping the venerable program on top of the ratings heap.
Taking advantage of NBC’s dominance in primetime courtesy of its coverage of the Winter Olympics — and starting 30 minutes later than usual because of it — Fallon’s debut as host averaged a 7.1 overnight household rating/20 share, according to Nielsen. »

Other than a revamped studio, a Spike Lee-directed opening sequence and a jazzy, funkified new theme song, the debut episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon bore a striking resemblance to its recently concluded Late Night incarnation. And why shouldn't it? So much of what made Late Night With Jimmy Fallon such a success was the 39-year-old host's sheer enjoyment of every facet of his job – and a happy Jimmy Fallon is a New York Jimmy Fallon. For the first time in 42 years, The Tonight Show has returned to its original home base, »
Tonight, Jimmy Fallon officially launches the next wave for The Tonight Show when he kicks off his reign as host. (Fallon shared his own excitement about taking over the late night institution with fans on Instagram.) Though he has been saying for months that his version of The Tonight Show won’t waver very much from the format established by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, we won’t know whether or not that is true until after the credits roll on this evening’s premiere (and really, we won’t truly know until Fallon settles into a groove a few »
