[YOUTUBE "Z0hQ_C59cyI"] As LFO was fond of reminding us, "Michael J. Fox was Alex P. Keaton" on the hit 1980s sitcom Family Ties, a crucial part of NBC's long-running Thursday night comedy block, which ends with the network's fall 2014 schedule.
But beyond its young star, a number of famous actors also started their journey to fame and fortune with bit parts on the series. To celebrate this week's 25th anniversary of the Family Ties finale (the curtain call of which you can watch above), let's revisit some of the series' most significant cameos.

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:

What do George Clooney, Matt Damon and Jon Hamm all have in common? No, not their status as PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive honorees – it's that Twitter is not their friend.
In his latest installment of Celebrities Read Mean Tweets, Jimmy Kimmel gathered Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jennifer Garner, Tom Hanks and other Monuments Men cast members to read messages from their less-than-positive Twitter followings. Insults include calling Clooney a "lumpy faced basterd" and referring to Rob Lowe as "skin cancer." Each star was dealt a blow to their psyche, none more so than Damon, who read a disparaging Tweet from frenemy Kimmel himself.

As any Hallmark card can tell you, the holidays are about bringing people together. For some of us, that means reuniting with grown-up children, or welcoming long-lost cousins into our homes. But for musicians, it means something else: seasonal duets, often performed with the oddest of partners.
From reality-show novelty songs to stocking-stuffer EPs, Christmas isn't Christmas until two people who have no business being in the same room have crowded in front of the mic to sing a holiday classic.
