Jimmy Fallon Full House
Danny Tanner, Uncle Jesse and Joey Gladstone all came to Jimmy Fallon's aid when he had trouble sleeping on the Late Night.

Bob Saget, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier dropped by to reprise their roles from the hit 90s show Full House for the skit. Amusingly Bob Saget looks exactly the same while Stamos had to put on a mullet extension and Coulier put on a mop wig (nice acid-wash jeans, too).

After Jimmy Fallon says he can't sleep because he's scared about leaving Late Night to host the Tonight Show, the three guys soothe Fallon and sing him to sleep with their famous "Teddy Bear" song.

Bruce Springsteen Jimmy Fallon
New Jersey governor Chris Christie is a huge fan of Bruce Springsteen, but he probably didn't like what the singer did last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

The Jersey native Springsteen joined Jimmy Fallon for a song about a recent political scandal involving Christie's aides allegedly shutting down part of New Jersey's highway to get back at a mayor who did not back Christie's bid for re-election - that's the short version of it, anyway.

Fallon begins the bit by singing an altered version of Born to Run while wearing Springsteen's signature denim cut-off shirt. The song, titled ...

Jimmy Fallon
Late night talk show hosts Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman weren't going to let a little thing like Hurricane Sandy get in their way Monday evening, as both hosts aired their shows with skeleton crews and without studio audiences.

Like the United States Postal Service the two comedians refused to let weather stop them and they provided the much needed comic relief from the superstorm -- for those who still had power, that is.

Fallon began his show by stepping outside his Rockefeller Center studio in Manhattan to show the nearly empty streets and explain that the show would go on despite ...

Barack Obama
President Barack Obama was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night (well, this morning) at the University of North Carolina. Part of his appearance was a "Slow Jam" of the news, where he sold his idea of halting an increase in interest rates on college students' Stafford loans.

Slow Jam is a recurring bit where Jimmy and a guest talk about a serious issue to smooth music by his house band, The Roots. This time, the bit was strictly partisan in nature. "Their position is that students just have to make this rate increase work. Frankly, I'm not buying it," said Obama, the straight man in...

That changed while she was promoting her memoirs on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon when the host booked the two celebrities on the same show.

Jimmy Fallon as Justin Bieber
We probably should have seen this coming. With an alleged child fathered by Justin Bieber, it's obvious someone is going to riff on his hit single Baby. There may be more than one version out there, but we think Jimmy Fallon's was the best. He performed as Bieber on his show Late Night with Jimmy Fallon with house band The Roots.

Could use a bit more auto-tune.

Justin Bieber's rep is fighting the allegations, and Bieber has decided to stop talking about the issue. "all the rumors...the gossip....Im gonna focus on the positives....the music... with this album Im giving portion of the pr...

The SuperBad star was less than amused when he then attended another Hollywood party and overheard Morrison talking about him again - so he jokingly threatened to show Morrison exactly how he feels the next time they meet.

He said, "Yo, Matthew Morrison you better br...

Katie Holmes
Actress Katie Holmes turns every car journey into a dance party - she loves to show off her moves while behind the wheel.

Tom Cruise's wife admits she often lets loose when she's alone and grooving in her car is one of her favorite pastimes.

She says, "In my kitchen, a lot of times, I practice. I do dance in my car. In fact... I've gotten caught before."

"But it doesn't stop me because I think, 'You know what? I like to do it.' And when I see other people do it, I'm like, 'That's right, enjoy it!'"

Leggy Holmes insists she's still a safe driver because "it's all upper body" - but she...
