    I always thought that if you were a celebrity on a promotional circuit, you'd definitely put The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon at the top of your priority list because Fallon seems to have a knack for coming up with these awesome bits that go super-viral and do wonders for a celebrity's public image. Like Brian Williams' ongoing rap mashups, or the show's famous lip sync battles (Emma Stone FTW!), or the time he did the evolution of hip-hop dancing with Will Smith. Unfortunately, comedian Kevin Hart kind of got the short end of the stick this week when Fallon forced him to face one of his biggest fears while cameras were rolling.

    What is Hart so scared of? Rollercoasters. So naturally, Fallon made him ride Universal Studios' Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit coaster, and Hart's reaction was ... fairly priceless. I have to hand it to him, though: at least he didn't pass out and soil his pants, because I'm pretty sure that's what I would have done.

    Jennifer Lawrence can not tell a lie -- no, for real, the actress is a terrible liar! She appeared as a guest on The Tonight Show last night, where Jimmy Fallon challenged her to a hilarious round of "Box of Lies."

    The point of the game is to choose a mystery box and then either lie or tell the truth about its contents. Your opponent then guesses whether you're telling the truth or fibbing. You'd think an Academy Award-winning actress could pull on a straight face while describing a Rubik's Cube suspended in Jell-O, right? Wrong! Jen doesn't have a poker face to speak of -- and she proves even more adorable in this hilarious video you have to see!

    Saturday Night Live writer Leslie Jones made her first on-air appearance on the show this past weekend, and wow did she make an impact. The black comedienne went on during Colin Josts' "Weekend Update" segment to congratulate Lupita Nyong'o's "Most Beautiful" award and ended up joking about the changing definition of black beauty.

    Jones poked fun at honoring black women for being the most beautiful and argued in favor of a "most useful" category instead. She asked Colin if he would pick her or Lupita if he were faced with three Crips in a dark parking lot. He picked Jones, whose large frame and even larger personality might actually have a fighting chance against some gang members.

    After days of frenzied speculation over who would replace David Letterman as the next host of CBS’ Late Show, the official word is in: CBS has signed a five-year deal with Stephen Colbert. When Letterman retires in 2015 -- after sitting behind the Late Show desk for a record-breaking 21 years -- Colbert will take over the reins.

    Many details have yet to be announced, like the show location and the exact date of Colbert's premiere, but reactions to the news have virtually taken over social media at the moment. Opinions seem to be all over the place, which makes sense to me, because I am having LOTS of feelings about Colbert's new gig.

    Come on, guys -- you knew this was coming, right?! After her stunning performance at this year's Oscars, Idina Menzel took "Let It Go" on the road and visited The Tonight Show to treat us all to an incredibly creative and sweet cover of the song from Disney's Frozen. With the help of host Jimmy Fallon, who has really found a niche that works here, and the uber-talented band members from The Roots, Idina and friends created the most interesting version of the song we've heard yet -- one that involves children's musical instruments!

    Seems that Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake can do no wrong. What better way to close out the first week of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon than with such an iconic guest. They could barely even contain their excitement about what was to come -- at first, they just sat there awkwardly looking at each other, then grabbed some conveniently hidden microphones and launched into "History of Rap 5." Yes, they've done this four times before already.

    They rap everything from LL Cool J to Salt 'n' Pepa to the Fresh Prince theme song, including some modern day hits like Kendrick Lamar's "Swimming Pools (Drank)" and a mash-up of Jay Z's "99 Problems." They finished off the amazing routine by jumping into the audience and belting out RUN DMC and Aerosmith's "Walk This Way."

    There's never a right answer to some questions wives may ask their husbands. "Does this make me look fat?" comes to mind. Another tricky topic to navigate is anything having to do with sex and her friends.

    Ray Romano was on Conan on Wednesday when he told Conan O'Brien that he recently made a fatal mistake when his wife hypothetically asked him whch of her friends he'd like to have a threesome with.

    Ahh, now we know where Girls' Allison Williams gets it from! Her dad, NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams, has talents that stretch far beyond gathering and reporting important news events. He's absolutely hilarious and -- shockingly -- on-key as he rapped a flawless cover of the old-school hip-hop song "Rapper's Delight" by The Sugarhill Gang on Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show.

    So much inane drama occured behind the scenes when it came to late-night talk show hosts, but for The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon finally took over as host. Between David Letterman, Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien, and Jimmy, the dust has finally settled, and The Tonight Show is back in New York City. Even Jimmy addressed the controversy in his opening monologue: "I’m Jimmy Fallon, and I’ll be your host for now."

    And the show was very New York. The opening credits were done by Spike Lee and U2 performed their new single, "Invisible," on the Top of the Rock at dusk.

    But of course, Jimmy enlisted the help of all his "pals" to kick off the show, and the clip that is sure to take over your Facebook feed this morning features Jimmy doing a rather familiar bit with none other than Will Smith.
