If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Jimmy Fallon hosted another Lip Sync Battle on "The Tonight Show" with "The Voice" judges Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani. While Fallon tried to keep up by using props and acting out a classic comedy bit by Spike Jones, he was no match for Shelton and Stefani, who brought out the big guns with Starship's "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" and Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe," respectively, then united for Stefani's final selection: "Endless Love" by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross.
Fallon also sat down for a pre-taped interview with country star Tim McGraw to discuss the singer's impressive discography, though the host couldn't *quite* figure out the titles of all of McGraw's hits. "I Like It, I Love It" is on the list -- but not "I Kind of Like It, Actually, I Hate It."
Recurring segment "I've Got Good News and Good News" was also back with local NBC newscasters from affiliates around the country offering their best fake -- but extremely upbeat -- news. This just in: Muffins are delicious, Santa Claus is a big fan of "Guardians of the Galaxy," and "We can dance if we want to."
Over on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Kimmel sat down with "Dancing With the Stars" judge Len Goodman, who admitted that he often didn't know who any of the "stars" are -- much like the audience, Kimmel quipped. Goodman also spilled some details about behind-the-scenes workings of the show, including that (surprise, surprise) current contestant Tommy Chong is a big fan of "wacky baccy," and that one of the worst competitors the show ever had was Master P.
Goodman also shared the origins behind some of the bizarre phrases he uses on "DWTS," noting that growing up around his grandfather in the dodgy London East End neighborhood taught him several. One chestnut involved Goodman's grandpa comparing money to a certain piece of his anatomy: "It only grows if you play with it," Goodman said.
"Modern Family" star Ty Burrell also stopped by "Kimmel" to promote his part in "The Skeleton Twins," in which he has a romantic relationship with Bill Hader's character. Burrell noted that the movie was more serious in tone than anything he or Hader had ever worked on in the past, so to break the tension, they'd constantly joke around on set -- much to the confusion of the crew.
Burrell also shared an anecdote about a recent disappointment on NFL Draft Day, in which he was supposed to present the jersey to the St. Louis Rams's first round pick -- but the player was a no-show. The actor also chatted about his recent attempt to learn to ride a Harley Davidson motorcycle, and how it was kind of a let-down, because it mostly involved learning how to turn the bike on and off, and driving a paltry 3-5 miles per hour.
