Johnny Carson: The Vault Series

The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson: The Vault Series
DVD
Time Life
Release date: October 4, 2016

Johnny Carson, the pioneer of late night television, whose incarnation of The Tonight Show ran for 30 years on NBC, is now available in newly packaged deluxe DVD set from Time-Life entitled The Vault Series, showcasing some of the best and most requested episodes from that program.

With the current success of The Tonight Show in reruns on Antenna TV, Johnny Carson’s famous visage, wit, distinctive voice, intelligence, and propensity to have a smooth control throughout has been resurrected for audiences young and old. Chock full of entertainment variety including a virtual who’s who of celebrities and musical acts, ranging from Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Paul McCartney, Muhammad Ali, Jack Benny, Richard Pryor, Sean Connery, Jerry Lewis, Buddy Rich, Don Rickles, Orson Welles, and scores of others, one would be hard pressed to find a celebrity who didn’t make his way on the program, which originally ran from 1962 to 1992. With hilarious sketches that usually parodied the pop culture of the times, and of course the banter between Carson and sidekick stalwart Ed McMahon, The Tonight Show was the perennial go-to program for most of America as the twilight hour surfaced, five nights a week.

Kenan & Kel Reunite For ‘Good Burger’ Sketch With Jimmy Fallon

Good Burger

If you were young in the ’90s and watched Nickelodeon, you’re surely familiar with Kenan & Kel. The show starred Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell, and ran from 1996 to 2000. Since then Thompson has gone on to a successful run on Saturday Night Live, while Mitchell has continued acting albeit in lesser known projects. Mitchell also auditioned for SNL, but it didn’t work out for him.

There have been reports of the pair not staying in touch in the years since their show ended, but last night they reunited on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon for a sketch that re-created the duo’s 1997 movie Good Burger, which was inspired by a sketch they did on another Nickelodeon show, All That.

You can check out the Kenan & Kel reunion below, as well as a behind the scenes video and one of their sketches from the ’90s.

Sigourney Weaver The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon

News broke on Wednesday that Neill Blomkamp will be directing a new Alien movie, a project he teased last month with concept art. After fans of the Alien film franchise responded very favorably to the director’s vision, Blomkamp revealed that Fox would make the film with him, but that he was the actual hold-out for it.

Later that night after the news broke that the District 9 director was officially on board for a new Alien movie, Sigourney Weaver appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon in an episode that was recorded earlier that day. But, knowing the history of the project, host Jimmy Fallon did bring up the subject of a new Alien movie during the interview with the star, who was promoting her new film, Chappie, which was directed by Blomkamp.

Check out the video here below, where Weaver talks about Chappie, as well as a new Alien movie. Also included is another part of the interview where the actress recounts seeing the Beatles when she was 12 years old.

Jimmy Fallon The Tonight Show SNL 40

We pretty much kept you up to date on Sunday night into Monday morning with our SNL 40 coverage. NBC broadcast the 3 1/2-hour Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special, which featured some of today’s biggest celebrities, past show hosts, past and present cast members, and musical guests. Amongst the returning cast members was Jimmy Fallon, current host of NBC’s The Tonight Show. Fallon and pal Justin Timberlake did a cold open rap to kick off the show, and Fallon was highlighted in several flashback reels.

On Monday night’s episode of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, which, like SNL, is recorded from the studios at Rockefeller Plaza in New York City, the host reminisced about the amazing night. Along with red carpet arrivals, there was also an after-party that featured some all-star jams, including one Fallon did with Taylor Swift and Paul McCartney, as well as a mind-blowing appearance by Prince.

Check out the 9-minute video here below of Fallon talking about the After Party, as well as some snippets from the various jam sessions, which included Fallon, Swift, and McCartney doing The Beatles “I Saw Her Standing There” and Swift’s recent hit “Shake It Off.” There’s also Instagram video of Bill Murray playing tambourine; Prince doing “Let’s Go Crazy,” and the B-52’s doing “Love Shack.”

Norman Reedus Plays Facebreakers With Jimmy Fallon On ‘The Tonight Show’

Jimmy Fallon and Norman Reedus The Tonight Show

On The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon last night, host Jimmy Fallon welcomed The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus, for a round of “Facebreakers,” a game using crossbows to crack panes of glass etched with Reedus and Fallon’s faces. The object of the game is to knock out more panes with the opponent’s face than the other, but Fallon had an extra special surprise for the loser. I kinda think that Reedus has the unfair advantage, because of course, I believe he IS Daryl Dixon.

Do you wanna know what the winner gets to do to the loser? You have to watch to see….

Watch the video here below of Norman Reedus playing the game on The Tonight Show, as well as being interviewed by Fallon.

Jimmy Fallon Reads Why I'm Single Tweets on The Tonight Show

Singles sometimes have it rough on Valentine’s Day. Everyone expects you to be sad, and thinks if you “act” like you are cool with being single, then you are just putting up a brave front. Some singles get self-reflective about their status. In honor of Valentine’s Day, Jimmy Fallon helps these reflectors this week by reading posts from Twitter with the hashtag #WhyImSingle during the “Hashtags” segment of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.

Watch the video here below of the #WhyImSingle Hashtags segment of The Tonight Show.

Jamie Dornan & Jimmy Fallon Read From ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ With Accents (Video)

Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan and Jimmy Fallon

On the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night, Jimmy Fallon had a super fun game planned for his guest, as per usual. Jamie Dornan, star of the soon-to-be biggest grossing movie of all time that doesn’t have explosions/superheroes/animation, Fifty Shades of Grey, joined the host for “Fifty Accents of Grey.” Taking turns pressing the “ultra high-tech accent generator,” both host and guest read one line each from the book, Fifty Shades of Grey.

Watch the video of this here below.

Fallon was adorable as usual, unable to maintain a straight face (one of his most endearing qualities), and pretty good with a Russian accent, sounding like Peter Stormare in Armageddon. Dornan got to do various sexually charged lines in Scottish and French as well as Count Cork Irish (different than his own real Irish accent — he was born in Belfast), while Fallon scored with Russian, Cowboy (“that’s not an accent”), and Italian (“I sound like Mario”).
