Jennifer Lopez, also wearing tight pants on her fine figure, sings that she's the one everyone loves her tight pants. When Fallon dares to suggest otherwise, "Jenny from the block" gets her claws out.

The odd skit, which plays...

Neil Young Makes Music History On 'The Tonight Show'
Last night, Neil Young did something no one else has before when he performed, recorded, and pressed a vinyl of a song during an episode of The Tonight Show.

Young and Jack White appeared on Jimmy Fallon's show to promote Young's A Letter Home, which was recorded entirely in a 1947 Voice-O-Graph recording booth. White had been searching for such a machine for years and finally found one and renovated it for his Third Man Records.

Young stepped into the booth to give it a spin (no word if he had to pay the 35 cents required to run it) and recorded a cover of Willie Nelson's Crazy. The so...

Jimmy Fallon and Diane Keaton
Jimmy Fallon found out the hard way what happens when you try to play a drinking game with someone who just wants to drink.

Diane Keaton was on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon yesterday to promote her book Let's Just Say It Wasn't Pretty. Fallon, who regularly challenges his guests to games, got the idea to play beer pong with the actress.

The actress then hurled a ping pong ball at Fallon and caught his throw, breaking the rules so that she could chug ...

If the rumors are true, CBS is gunning to get a star from outside the network to replace Letterman. Right now, hot names include Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert and Neil Patric...
