Conan had Rob Gronkowski and Marshawn Lynch on his show to play the yet-to-be-released Mortal Kombat X, and there was really no way the premise couldn't deliver. Come for the discussion about Mario Kart characters, and stay for Marshawn Lynch teaching Conan how to properly taunt the opposition by grabbing your nuts.… » 1/30/15 1:32am 1/30/15 1:32am

Man, Myth, Legend: David Letterman and the End of a Late Night Era

A couple of weeks ago, I trekked into Times Square on a gloomy Thursday to pay homage to the king one last time. I was eleven when Dave took the spot after Johnny Carson, not quite old enough to watch it every night — and we wouldn't own a VCR to tape it for a few more years — but at an age where I caught it… » 12/23/14 11:15am 12/23/14 11:15am

"That Joke Has Everything": David Letterman, Before Late Night

Conan O'Brien Takes Over A Football Stadium's Screen With Video Games

One of the largest video-capable screens in the world is finally being used as it should be: To play Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, Need For Speed, Flower and a few more games on it. Not playing Pong on it is probably a wasted opportunity, though. » 4/10/14 9:20am 4/10/14 9:20am

The Playboy Interview: Stephen Colbert on Politics, Grief and Bill…

Well, the #CancelColbert people got their wish. Sort of. Stephen Colbert will leave the Colbert Report to replace David Letterman on the Late Show.

What High School Yearbook Award Would Peyton Manning Get?

Not sure how fair it is to make fun of Peyton's funhouse mirror forehead the week he's playing Brady and his caveman dome, but I think we can all get behind that Logan Mankins picture as Drunkest Guy At The Picnic. Here's Fallon giving the Pats and Broncos high school yearbook awards. » 11/24/13 9:28am 11/24/13 9:28am

Jimmy Fallon And Justin Timberlake Do A Bunch Of End Zone Dances

They call this bit "The Evolution of End Zone Dancing," but once they get past the "Dirty Bird" it's really just Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake dicking around for a few minutes. We're OK with that, but only because they do a dance called "Earthquake Waiter." That one is funny, for some reason. » 9/11/13 9:42am 9/11/13 9:42am

Jimmy Fallon's Interview With “Michael Jordan” Is Surprisingly Funny

This is the kind of bit that has the potential to be gimmicky and unfunny, but Fallon and Kristen Wiig have the comedic timing that's necessary to make a five-minute interview with "Michael Jordan" worth watching. Also, it's pretty hard not to laugh at that bald cap. » 7/16/13 10:03am 7/16/13 10:03am
