I could be Fallon in love.

What do mom-dancing, hashtags and children's instruments have in common? They're all topics that Jimmy Fallon, with his one-of-a-kind ingenuity and enthusiasm, was able to mine for big laughs – and, once they hit the Web, big views.
Possibly more than any other show, Fallon's Late Night understood the science of making comedy bits go viral. The formula was easy to explain, but hard to master: Take a celebrity, give him or her a trending topic and find a cutesy, nostalgic spin, then hopefully watch the views roll in.
In honor of Fallon's assumption of the Tonight Show throne Monday night, enjoy this side-splitting collection of some of his most-viewed sketches:

Rose asks the women of Downton Abbey.
Yes, love is in the air at Downton, and there's no better place to show it off than at the church bazaar. While Lord Grantham is in America helping Cora's brother out of jam (which history knows as the Teapot Dome Scandal), Cora manages to stage an elaborate fundraiser for the church, complete with games, drinks, bunting and plenty of gossip.
Here are 7 quotes to remember from this season's penultimate episode:
1. It's not exactly news to Mary, given that Tom Branson saw Rose and Jack Ross out on the town together, and she's not very happy about the match, which seems driven less by true love than by Rose's desire to retaliate against her hated mother. ("I want to see her face crumble!") Concerned about the engagement, Mary heads to London to petition Ross, who is surprisingly receptive and agrees not to marry Rose, but for a different reason entirely: He loves her, and doesn’t want to ruin her life with the complications of an interracial marriage. A surprisingly tolerant Mary understands, but adds, "To be fair to papa, he would find you being a bandleader harder to swallow than your color."

Bethenny Frankel can still do plenty of talking – just not on her own show.
Bethenny, the eponymous talk show hosted by the former reality star, has been canceled, PEOPLE has confirmed. Deadline.com reports low ratings doomed the show, although it appears she'll be ending her run in May on excellent terms.
"I had a blast doing this show with Telepictures," she says in a statement. "My entire staff worked so hard and made every day so much fun. I am thankful for the experience and for all my fans who tuned in every day."

When the highly anticipated second season of House of Cards drops Friday, actress Kate Mara will be a typical viewer ready to binge-watch.
Though she gained early access to the show's first season, Mara, 30, hasn't seen any of the political drama's new episodes, which Netflix will release all at once on Valentine's Day.
"I'm just as excited to watch it like anyone else," she tells GQ in the magazine's latest issue, on newsstands Feb. 25.

Shocking, but true: Lady Mary got down and dirty on the Feb. 9 episode of Downton Abbey , but it was Rose and Edith who had far darker secrets to conceal.
Here are seven of Sunday's more memorable quotes, as the passive-aggressive Downton drama unfolded:
1. While Mary and Mr. Blake revealed an instant, though superficially courteous, dislike for each other, things quickly heated up as Blake soon realized that Mary isn't just another aloof aristocrat. When the two went to inspect the estate's newly arrived pigs, he realizes the poor animals are dehydrated and on the verge of dying. When he suggests Mary leave so he can save the pigs, she balks, "I'm not going, they're my pigs!" Working side by side, the two – dressed in their dinner-at-Downton best – spend hours carting buckets of water through the mud to save the pigs, finally lightening the tension (on every level) by breaking into a mud fight. Returning to the house, Mary cooks up some scrambled eggs – further impressing Blake – and thanks him: And thus is a new flame ignited.

Would Rosie O'Donnell ever return to The View?
And if she did, what would happen?
These are examples of two questions that no one had been asking themselves. And yet the instincts of nostalgia are not to be denied: The announcement that O'Donnell would visit the ABC morning talk show Feb. 7 prompted the fingers to instantly program that appearance into the DVR calendar.
I had such an itch to see her again, you see.
