Saying Goodbye to David Letterman: A Look Back at His 33-Year Legacy

Originally posted 05/20/2015 04:00PM

When NBC handed David Letterman Late Night in 1982, his offbeat humor ushered in a new era of late night.

Thirty-three years later, he's stepping down from a late-night landscape that changed around him, having stayed true to himself as the medium changed from appointment viewing to something to be easily digested the next morning in three- to four-minute clips.

"I recognized the value of it," Letterman told The New York Times back in April of his competitors' tendency to gear their shows toward digital audiences. "It's just, I didn't know what to say. You go back to your parents' house, and they still have the rotary phone. It's a little like that."

Add a glass of white wine and bigger hair, and they've got their own series.

Andy Cohen visited The Tonight Show Wednesday to promote his upcoming speaking tour with Anderson Cooper, "Deep Talk and Shallow Tales." But conversation turned – as it does – to Bravo's tentpole Real Housewives franchise, and Cohen tried his hand at creating a "tag line" for his own hypothetical slot on the show.

In his five years hosting Late Night, Jimmy Fallon has mischievously mixed up the after-dark talk-show format.

Before Fallon brings his shenanigans to The Tonight Show on Feb. 17, let's celebrate the Late Night bits that really delivered the laughs.

Harrison Ford Pierces Jimmy Fallon's Ear on Late Night: Watch the Hilarious Video

Originally posted 11/02/2013 11:20AM

Looks like Harrison Ford has a good ear for creating a funny TV moment.

And that ear belonged to Jimmy Fallon.

In a queasy, brazen display of do-it-yourself chutzpah, the actor pierced the talk-show host's ear … right in front of a live audience on Friday's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

But it was Fallon's alternately petrified, amused and shrieking reaction that stole the show.

Here's how it all went down.

It's official!

Seth Meyers will replace Jimmy Fallon as the host of Late Night.

"We think Seth is one of the brightest, most insightful comedy writers and performers of his generation. His years at SNL's 'Weekend Update' desk, not to mention being head writer of the show for many seasons, helped him hone a topical brand of comedy that is perfect for the Late Night franchise," NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt said Sunday.

Jimmy Fallon's Take on the Bieber Baby Scandal

Originally posted 11/04/2011 01:20PM

Justin Bieber is playing it straight on the allegations that he fathered a baby with a fan.

"None of it is true ... never met the woman," the 17-year-old singer said on Today Friday. "I know that I'm going to be a target, but I'm never going to be a victim."

Maybe not a victim, but easily the butt of late night jokes.

Jimmy Fallon weighed in on the baby-gate Wednesday night, performing "(It's Not My) Baby" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon as a dead ringer for the pop star. (Chorus: "It's not my baby, baby, baby, no, it's not my baby, baby, baby, no ...")

It was only a matter of time.

Jimmy Fallon Covers Willow Smith's 'Whip My Hair' – With Bruce Springsteen

Originally posted 11/17/2010 11:45AM

What if "Whip My Hair" was a slow jam?

On his talk show Tuesday night, Jimmy Fallon – as his alter-ego, Neil Young – decelerated Willow Smith's hit single, bringing an emotional warble, some acoustic guitar and harmonica to the self-empowerment anthem. "Don't let the haters keep me off my grind," Fallon, as Young, sang. "Keep my head up, I know I'll be fine. Keep on fighting until I get there. When I'm down and I feel like giving up, I think again."

Midway through the song, the Late Night host got a little help from musical guest Bruce Springsteen, who chimed in on the chorus, adding a craggy, grizzled, "Whip your hair," as Fallon sang.

The guys were mostly stoic in their heartfelt – and affectionately joking – rendition, but we would have loved to see some hair-whipping to accompany the crooning. Next time!

VIDEO: Jimmy Fallon Spoofs a Sulky Robert Pattinson

Originally posted 10/30/2009 03:05PM

Attention Robert Pattinson fanatics: The world's most famous tortured bloodsucker can’t stand Halloween. Or at least that's the humorous way Late Show host Jimmy Fallon portrays a moody version of the Twilight star in the latest installment in his series Robert Is Bothered.

"Halloween bothers me," sulks Fallon-as-Pattinson. "Costumes are stupid. Are you a werewolf? No you're not, you're a person. You can't fool me. Jackass! No candy!"

"Pumpkins are dumb fat squashes," Fallon jokes in a fake British accent. "Candy corns are stupid. Are you a candy or are you corn?"

The skit follows previous Robert Is Bothered spoofs on Snickers ads and Shark Week.

Perhaps Pattinson should dress up as a certain late-night talk show host for Halloween?

Just a thought.
