Why? Because Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer look the same. Or similar. But when they were dressed up in the same outfit last night for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, they looked downright identical.

After the drum-off, the verdict is in: Smith is a better drummer, and Ferrell is funnier.

Glad we were abel to sort that out. The video itself is actually pretty funny, so enjoy.

If you’re a fan of wacky juxtapositions, you probably enjoy The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, what with its pop-culture reference and its various Roots members. Previously, Fallon had brought us back to teh world of Saved by the Bell on several occassions, but now they’re skewing a year or two younger with some Boy Meets World slam poetry.

Read by Samuel L. Jackson, natch.

Keep it clean when you talk about Topanga, Sam.

Jimmy Fallon made his premiere as the Tonight Show host last night. Unsurprisingly, quite a few stops were pulled out last night. Would I dare say they pulled out “all” the stops?

No. I wouldn’t.

But they did get a bunch of people who are always appearing in all sorts of crap. Namely, Robert De Niro, Joan Rivers, Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan, Mariah Carey, and Rudy Giuliani all swung by. It’s like what my fantasy dinner party would be like, only the total opposite.

To be fair, Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey, and Seth Rogen also made appearances, but mentioning them above would have torpedoed my little joke.

Take a look and just imagine if he can keep this sort of prestige up for the next 25 years or so. That would be impressive!

Tonight will be Jay Leno‘s final show as the host of NBC’s Tonight Show, after a more or less consecutive 22-year run. In a move particularly fitting for the host who thrived in comfort and the familiar, he will be having his first-ever guests back on for the finale. Those two are…

Garth Brooks and Billy Crystal.

I guess there’s no better way for geriatric favorite Jay Leno to go out than by throwing up a big middle finger to the younger tastemakers of today and saying “Eff you! This is how we did this shit back in ’92. Leno! What! LENO!!! WHAT!!!”

I’m not sure it will go down like that, but it’s my guess.

In case you’re more concerned with looking forward than backward, Jimmy Fallon‘s run of the Tonight Show begins on February 17th.

That’s right. It’s the end of an era. No more headlines, no more Jaywalking, no more making fun of Kevin Eubanks virginity, night after night after night. It all ends tonight as Jay Leno steps down from the Tonight Show after a rockier-than-usual couple of years.

And up comes The Roots featuring Jimmy Fallon, allowing Leno to return to his original loves of cars and wearing denim shirts with jeans.

Fallon doesn’t step up for a couple weeks, so maybe we’ll be in for a treat with some vintage Leno in which he makes Bobbitt and Lance Ito jokes while making jokes about how much money Bill Gates has.

Goodbye, old friend.

That’s a lot of sliding, but it’s pretty clear that the only type of person that can take on Jimmy Fallon‘s innocuously cute, but ultimately unfunny TV show is yet another weekend update host.

BUT WHAT OF CARSON DALY? HE WAS BEING GROOMED, I THOUGHT!!!

The good news here is that Leno will probably go away sometime next year, and Justin Timberlake will get even more exposure on Fallon’s new Tonight Show outlet, making himself known to the four or five American’s who didn’t know who Justin Timbertree was, but sure loved those wacky headlines and that black fella who led Leno’s band with the big smile.

Conan O’Brien was unavailable for comment, as at press time, he was gently petting a hairless cat and laughing maniacally.

Yesterday, we reported the lovely news that Howard Stern called Jay Leno a spineless maggot. Well, without even knowing that Leno-bashing was in season, Jimmy Kimmel spoke with Bill Carter, author of The Late Shift, in front of an audience, and, when asked what he thought of Jay Leno, responded “Fuck him” without missing a beat.

Kimmel has a history of mocking Leno both on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and on The Tonight Show, where he slammed Leno to his face in almost roast-like fashion. Seems that wasn’t enough.

Kimmel  as he prepares to go straight up against David Letterman and Leno in the 11:35 slot in January. Kimmel doesn’t appear to have been wronged by Jay Leno…he just really doesn’t like him.

Which seems to be how most of America feels. Stay tuned tomorrow, when Barack Obama is expected to call Leno an “unfunny cunt weasel.”

Howard Stern went on Late Night with David Letterman last night and did what he does best. No. He didn’t force Paul Schaffer to fart the melody of an LMFAO song. Instead, he stirred up the age old battle between Letterman and Jay Leno.

Stern told Letterman that NBC brass have tried to force the new America’s Got Talent judge to promote the program on The Tonight Show, but Stern refused, saying, “I’m a Letterman guy.” He then revealed that he didn’t realize the Late Night Wars had ended with Dave calling off any future salvos. Except, of course, for Letterman commenting that if he found out Leno had won a People’s Choice award, it would be “like hearing Manson has been paroled.”

So, war back on? (USA Today)

Jay Leno, the grand marshal of California‘s annual Love Ride, jokingly asked this year’s motorcycle-riding participants to drive recklessly. Unfortunately, the “funny”-man’s crack became a reality, and one rider ended up colliding with an eighteen-wheeler, killing not only himself, but his female passenger as well.

Every year, they say, ‘Drive safe’. I’m gonna say, ‘Don’t drive safe’. I wanna see somebody go down. So it’ll be fun. I want it to be in front or behind me and see a whole row of bikes go down. Get drunk, fall off the road. We’ve all become too damn polite… We haven’t had one incident.

As much as I hate Jay Leno (and I hate Jay Leno), I’m sure he feels very bad that obviously jokes were made before such a tragedy. And truth be told, I find his off-color remarks here far less offensive than his painfully vanilla banter with bandleader Kevin Eubanks. And in all fairness, Leno has donated ten guided tours of his garage for auction to help cover costs associated with the accidents that day, which is actually a pretty nice gesture.

One year later, Conan O’Brien has made some kind of angry peace with Jay Leno, but Howard Stern recently Jaywalked all up in the Tonight Show host’s freakish chin. The skeezy shock jock pulled no punches on an upcoming interview for CNN‘s Piers Morgan Tonight, calling Leno “insane,” which definitely means something from a man who once dressed up in ass-less spandex in front of millions and called himself “Fartman.” He also says Leno is “a crook,” which would mean Leno is incapable of coming up with his own consistently mediocre-to-terrible material.

Stern also took a big dump on Leno’s audience too:

“He’s not fit to scrub David Letterman‘s feet,” he goes on. “I don’t know how he’s beaten David Letterman in the ratings. It’s beyond my comprehension. America must be filled with morons who at night lay in bed — the ones who are watching him, they must be in a coma.”

When the Conan controversy erupted, I really hated Leno. Now that it’s all died down, I don’t know… it’s not that I think he’s even remotely amusing. It’s just that he’s so milquetoast, it’s hard for me to feel anything about him. I have no strong like or dislike of Wonder Bread, Matthew Sweet or the Toyota Camry either – they just kind of are. However, if Stern wants to spend the energy to hate him, I wish “The King of All Media That’s Satellite Radio” lots of luck. (Hollywood Reporter)

It's now believed that NBC will not enforce the no-compete clause in his contract and allow him to set up shop at another network, but he won't be taking his recurring characters and sketches with him. Inside sources say that NBC is keeping trademarked elements of Conan's shows as part of the exit deal. Characters like Masturbating Bear, Pimpbot 5000, Vomiting Kermit, Coked-Up Werewolf, and Horny Manatee (why didn't he connect with old people?!) will never appear again nor will sketches such as If They Mated, In the Year 3000, and Desk-Driving. It's unclear if Robert Smigel's Triumph the Insult Comic Dog is effected in this deal. I'm certainly looking forward to when Conan sets up elsewhere with a new slew of characters like Masturbating Deer, Pimpbot 6000, Sharting Kermit, and Coked-Up Werewolf Wearing Groucho Glasses.
