Watch 5 of Jimmy Fallon's Most Popular Late Night Moments, from Hashtags to Mom-Dancing

Originally posted 02/17/2014 02:15PM

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:

George Clooney, Jon Hamm Read Mean Tweets on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Originally posted 02/07/2014 12:30PM

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.

Listen to the 10 Strangest Holiday Duets of All Time

From Bing to Bieber, Listen to the 10 Strangest Holiday Duets of All Time

Originally posted 12/04/2013 12:00AM

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. Why do they do this? You should just as soon ask Black Friday shoppers why they camp out for hours in front of big-box stores. Holiday magic is a compelling thing.

The Daily Treat: Joseph Gordon-Levitt Cuddles a Kitten and We All Die Happy

Originally posted 09/13/2013 02:00PM

There's a lot to love about Joseph Gordon-Levitt: his charming turn in 500 Days of Summer; his determination to do the right thing in The Dark Knight Rises; his face. But just when you think you've hit peak JGL appreciation, the sexy star of Don Jon, which he also wrote and directed, gives us one more reason to pine over him: he cuddles with a kitten.

The actor adorably cradles the tiny furbaby in a new spread for the October issue of Out magazine, which he also covers. Inside, Gordon-Levitt heaps praise on his late brother Dan, who passed away in 2010, and talks about how his parents raised him to be compassionate.

"They both instilled into me and my brother the feeling that we're part of the world, and that that's important – that we're all connected and everyone's well-being is tied to each other," he says. "They're hippies, but they were not so much about being flower children as getting something done, trying to stop this war, or changing civil rights or the feminist movement – and they still are that way."
