Peyton Manning
During a visit to Jimmy Fallon, Peyton Manning talked about his brother, Eli's famous Super Bowl face. Last Sunday, Peyton's Denver Broncos won Super Bowl 50, handing the Carolina Panthers only their second lose all season. When Denver's victory became a sure thing, cameras cut to the box where Manning's family was watching the game.

Jimmy Fallon's bosses at NBC continue to support the late-night talk show host, despite rumors of his excessive drinking and the host's repeated injuries over the past four months

"The Tonight Show" host has been outed by The New York Post for his behavior.

According to Page Six, an NBC insider, who asked to remain anonymous, said no one is worried about the show's reputation because everyone views Jimmy as “a big kid.”

“He likes to have a good time. His show takes a lot of work: He has to learn songs and dances,” which would be hard to do if he were constantly wasted," the source expla...

Jay Leno Returns To 'The Tonight Show' With Surprise Appearance
Jay Leno stepped out onto the stage of 'The Tonight Show' on NBC Tuesday, and for a few minutes at least, it was like he never left.

The comedian surprised the audience at 'The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon' after Fallon pretended to pull a hamstring and asked for someone to step in for him.

Leno served up a monologue where he dissected the 2016 presidential campaign and then closed with one his classic segments where he channels Rodney Dangerfield and other old-school comics by talking about "how bad" things have gotten.

Leave it to "The Tonight Show" host to continue to tap into fans biggest childhood memories and bring them back to life.

Kel Mitchell was in the midst of an appearance on the late night talk show to promote his new Nickelodeon series, "Game Shakers" when the magic began to unfold.

Less than two years into his tenure as host of "The Tonight Show," Jimmy Fallon is already looking to the future and choosing his successor.

The host was joined by show emcee Steve Higgins and Tariq and Questlove of house band The Roots as he parodied Fox's hit series "Empire."

Fallon grilled several members of his staff to see who he could groom as the next host of the show, and the show's real stars -- Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard -- made cameo appearances in the hilarious 10-minute sketch.

A few surprises were thrown in as Questlove revealed a HUGE secret and Fallon revealed w...

WATCH! Jimmy Fallon And Lionel Richie Parady Creepy 80s Video 'H
Have you ever thought the classic Lionel Richie video for "Hello" was a little creepy? So did Jimmy Fallon, and he parodied the clip with the singer for a hilarious "Tonight Show" bit.

On Friday's episode of NBC's "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" the host and the singer recreated the video to side-splitting results.

On a table next to the late night host is a clay bust of a man's head (a nod to the original video).

As Fallon continues to sing and paint, the "clay" head spins to face the audience, revealing Richie to the crowd.

The Grammy winner then took over the vocals for th...

Hillary's Trump Impersonation On 'Fallon' May Win You Over As A
Hillary Clinton is known for a lot of things, but bringing the funny is not one of them. However, the presidential hopeful's impersonation of Donald Trump during her appearance on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show just may earn your vote in the 2016 Elections -- or not.

After CNN's Republican debate, where candidates squared off for a second time -- Fox hosted the first -- Clinton got things popping with Fallon. The presumptive Democratic nominee for the White House took part in a comical sketch with the funnyman host, who pretended to be Trump.

He called Fallon a "total lightweight" and said h...

The 22-year-old star joined Fallon for the recurring "Wheel of Musical Impressions" skit and showed her pipes while slaying impressions of Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and, of course, Celine Dion.

Fallon nailed his impressions of Aaron Neville and Sting also, and the two stars had an "I Can't Feel My Face"-Off as they both had to perform The Weeknd's hit single, the host a...

Donald Trump Interviews Himself On 'The Tonight Show'
Donald Trump joined Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" Friday night for an interview and a little skit where the 2016 presidential candidate interviewed himself.

Fallon began the show dressed as Trump, entering his dressing room and sitting at the mirror, while the real Donald sat across from him. The discussion began with Fallon poking fun at himself, saying, "Let's be honest, Fallon's a lightweight. No way he deserves to interview me."

"The only one qualified to interview me... is me," he added.

"Me interviewing me? That's what I call a great idea," the real Donald replied.

Jimmy Fallon Lip Sync Battles Ellen DeGeneres And Does History O
Ellen DeGeneres joined Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" Wednesday night for another epic Lip Sync Battle.

The two stars were joined by Fallon BFF Justin Timberlake, who sat in by house band The Roots to judge the battle, and the two comedians had him laughing so hard that his "cheeks hurt."

Jimmy started things off by trying to bribe his guest judge before launching into The Killers' "Mr. Brightside," but the drab, lyric-heavy choice left things wide open for Ellen to jump out to an early lead, which she did by way of Diana Ross' "Theme From Mahogany (Do You Know Where You're Going To)....

No Risky Business Here, Jimmy Fallon And Tom Cruise Take On 'Top
Tom Cruise joined Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" on Monday night for a round of Lip Sync Battle -- the skit that started the whole Spike TV series phenomenon.

Fallon and his guest took to the microphones, and while we hoped he'd pull out some of his Les Grossman moves from "Tropic Thunder," he wasn't able to save a couple of weak song choices, which paled in comparison to the energy of the host.

Cruise's first song, The Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face," nearly stopped before he could get started, but despite Fallon's (fake) hype for it, he took on the Rolling Stones' "Undercover of the N...

What The Heck Was Charlize Theron Wearing On 'The Tonight Show S
And this is why Jimmy Fallon will never make it in the fashion industry.

On Monday, actress Charlize Theron (starring in the upcoming "Mad Max: Fury Road") was a guest on "The Tonight Show," and as a gag she and Fallon picked out each other's wardrobes for a segment on the show.

The result? Theron strutted onstage wearing a blazer, shiny gold harem pants, platform sneakers, an extra-long curly wig, mini top hat and some gold dollar sign bling.

Fallon rocked a shiny bowl cut wig, massive Elton John sunglasses, a pink pantsuit, fur vest, and enormous cheetah-print heels with dice in the he...

Madonna and Jimmy Fallon
After years of producing elaborate stage shows where "no one makes any money," Madonna told Jimmy Fallon on Thursday night's episode of The Tonight Show that it would be nice if she didn't have to deal with all the expensive productions and could just walk out on stage and tell jokes, like a stand up comedian.

Naturally, Fallon's show was the perfect place to make this happen, as the host was more than willing to let her give it a try.

Once the two broached the subject of her dream job, she said she's "kind of a closet comedian" -- but, unfortunately, she should probably stay there (along...

Julia Louis Dreyfus On The Tonight Show
Julia Louis-Dryefus appearance on "The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon" almost brought the house down when she and Fallon played a hilarious game of "Whisper Challenge."

During the game, Louis-Dreyfus and Fallon took turns wearing headphones with loud music playing while the other read a phrase. Each had two chances to figure out what their opponent was saying, using lipreading to guess the phrase.

The premise was simple enough, until the phrases on the cards were eventually revealed.

The "Veep" star went first and was so engrossed in the music that she didn't realize Fallon had repeated ...

Ariana Grande joined Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" Friday night, making her first ever talk show appearance to actually talk instead of perform.

The former Nickelodeon star, who made a name for herself with a breakout music career in 2014, said that she was "so nervous" for her first talk show interview.

"I don't speak... It's my first time speaking in front of people," she said, "I've never spoken on -- I've never 'talked' on a talk show... I feel vulnerable."

The sure highlight of Ariana's appearance was her impression of Canadian singer Celine Dion, and the 21-year-old nailed her...

Kelly Clarkson joined Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" Monday night to promote her new album, "Piece By Piece."

Before Kelly performed for the audience, Jimmy mentioned that he read an article recently in which the former American Idol winner said she struggles to find people to duet with.

"I don't understand, I would love to do a duet with Kelly Clarkson," Fallon said.

"Did somebody say duet?" Clarkson said as she emerged from backstage.

The two then went into a medley of the history of duets, which we hope ends up as a recurring bit on the show, much like Fallon and pal Justin Timbe...

Christina Aguilera guested on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Monday evening, and played a game of Wheel of Musical Impressions with Jimmy.

The host and his guest took turns belting out random songs as if they were sung by the likes of Cher, David Bowie and Shakira.

Xtina got things started with a hilarious-yet-perfect impression of Cher if she were singing the jingle from the Folgers coffee commercials.

After composing himself from a fit of laughter after The Voice star's Cher impression, it was Jimmy's turn, and he ended up with Bowie as his artist and had to sing George M. Coha...

Taylor Swift has been known to attract the attention of cameramen when she gets up to dancing to performances from the biggest music acts as they perform live at award shows like the Grammys, MTV VMAs, American Music Awards and the myriad Country Music award shows (something music is actually supposed to inspire you to do), and on Tuesday's episode of The Tonight Show, she and host Jimmy Fallon revealed that they used to both dance on screen together all the time.

The two spoofed fans who are caught on camera dancing on the Jumbotrons at America's many sports venues, showing off their move...

Do you remember a time when Will Smith rapped on a regular basis?

Jimmy Fallon does.

Last night, Smith was a guest on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" when Fallon brought the former rap star back to his roots.

Fallon whipped out his iPad, unveiling his newest app purchase: "Looper. Or Loopy. Something like that" (we're pretty sure it's Loopy- that's a real app).

Using the app, Fallon and Smith recorded themselves beatboxing, adding layer on top of layer until they had created what was basically the backing track for Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock's 1988 hit, "It Takes Two."

Then, the t...
