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.
"The Tonight Show" Tuesday night to play Drinko. Jimmy Fallon said Kevin specifically requested this game because 1) Jimmy isn't very good at Drinko, and 2) Kevin said, "If I lose what's the big deal, I get a chance to drink for free." However, the "drinks" included stuff like "Pea Soup," "Pickle Juice," and "Tang," and they had to drink a mix of two of them. Kevin first got "Mulled Wine" and he didn't even know what it was. When Jimmy said it had stuff like cinnamon sticks and herbs, Kevin warned him, "Well, I'll tell you off the bat -- cinnamon sticks give me gas, so you gotta deal with that on your own time." Haha. Kevin got very (mock) upset that "the black guy got Hennessy" and Jimmy kept getting juice. Jimmy really took one for the team there in the end, adding pea soup to his juices. Nasty.
The truth is out there -- "The X-Files" revival starts next week (January 24) on FOX. Jimmy Kimmel said it's one of his all-time favorite shows, and he got to sit with stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny to chat about Mulder and Scully's past and future. The stars talked about getting the roles and explained their '90s tension (blame "moist" Vancouver!). Plus, Duchovny named his least favorite monster. The last video includes a real clip from the new series.
Also, don't miss this "X-Files" clip with Mulder, Scully, and Jimmy Kimmel. Obviously it's just a bit, but the '90s references are classic. AOL dial-up for life! "Mulder, put the floppy down." And Jimmy speaks for all of us when he suggests Mulder and Scully just have sex. So they make out right there in front of him ... and the little alien guy.
Breaking news: This Sunday (January 17), the living legend that is Betty White turns 94! She is just as quick-witted and adorable as ever. Just watch her talk to James Corden about how she's going to spend her birthday. ("I'm going to celebrate with Robert Redford. He doesn't know that yet. And I think he's out of the country.") James also quizzed Reggie Watts and Amar'e Stoudemire on whether Betty White was born before or after certain things. For example, "The NBA -- did it exist when Betty was born in 1922?" How about New Mexico? Mickey Mouse? Watch and see. Young Jacob Tremblay of "Room" looked sharp on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and talked about meeting "Star Wars" hero Oscar Isaac.
Over on "The Late Show," Saoirse Ronan tried to teach Stephen Colbert an Irish accent. He has Irish ancestors, so he's close.Eva Longoria talked to Seth Meyers about returning to TV, and the male divas she's worked with. She said the difference between daytime soaps and nighttime soaps is that during the day the men are the divas.
Steve Carell was on "Conan" and shared the story of how "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" almost didn't happen. Universal shut them down after just a few days of filming because they had been watching early footage -- just Carell riding around on his bike -- and told the star, "You look like a serial killer." The suits didn't think it looked like a comedy at all. Haha. Thankfully, they were able to keep shooting, and everything turned out well.
