The Roots NBCFallout from 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon''s Michele Bachmann intro music controversy continues.

According to EW, The Roots, the in-house band on 'Late Night,' must now get their song choices approved by NBC. The band's frontman Questlove said he understands the need for the new process.

"It's still a comedy show, so they promise not to step on my toes or that type of thing, but they definitely want to know the title of the song, the subject matter of the song, can it be seen as an insult?" he said.

Jimmy Fallon and Mario Batali Reminisce About Grocery Shopping in Ireland (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Dec 6th 2011 7:15PM
Mario Batali has made several visits to his buddy Jimmy Fallon's late-night show, and Tuesday Fallon returned favor and came by 'The Chew' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC). As they cooked some wine-stained garganelli in "ugly holiday sweaters," Jimmy told a funny story about going grocery shopping with Batali while on a golf vacation in Ireland.

"It was the coolest thing ... it was like, how does he hold the cart different than I do?" Fallon joked, as Batali demonstrated his cart-pushing runway walk. Batali enlisted Fallon as his shopping assistant, and Fallon ran around the store picking up things for him. Sent on a mission to find a grill-pan, Fallon went exploring, only to find an entire Mario Batali Cookware aisle. Jimmy made Batali go up to the counter and buy his own pan, while pointing out to the cashier that his friend's picture was on the packaging. Batali still had to pay full price.

'The View' Ladies Mock Michele Bachmann's 'One Word' Fallon Interview (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 22nd 2011 1:45PM
Michele Bachmann's awkward interview on 'Late Night' is making the rounds on the web after she played a game of 'One Word' with Jimmy Fallon. With the lights dimmed, Fallon tried to take the Congresswoman through some word association, but before he could get the game started she blurted out "Partymonkey!" and "cranberries." Once they finally got going, she used the opportunity to toss a few zingers at her fellow Republican presidential candidates.

Tuesday on 'The View,' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) the panel replayed a clip from the interview and went around the table sharing the one word they'd use to describe Bachmann. "Oops!" cracked Joy Behar. Barbara Walters chose not to share hers. "I don't think I will say it," she demurred. "Bonehead!" offered Sherri Shepherd. Whoopi Goldberg put a bow on the ladies' Bachmann opinions. "She looked fantastic ... but she's not presidential material, I'm sorry, she's not. Just my opinion."

It's Regis Philbin's last week on 'Live,' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) and the show is pulling out all the stops to send him off as a hero of daytime TV. On Monday's show, Jimmy Fallon stopped by and serenaded Regis to the tune of 'It's Only Just Begun.'

Fallon sang, "Why do you have to leave? He's only sixty-three ... What's that, he's 80? Good lord." He then gave a musical run-through of Regis' TV career. "He started out at as a page on NBC .. from Joey Bishop into Kathie Lee, I'll miss all those things you said," before breaking into an impression of Regis excitedly yelling at Gellman about Jerry Seinfeld being on the cover of Newsweek.

Stephen Colbert's Ice Cream Beats Jimmy Fallon's With Science (VIDEO)

Jimmy Fallon, 'The Colbert Report'With Dippin' Dots struggling financially, Stephen Colbert sought out to find the next "Ice Cream of the Future" on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central). He decided it should probably be his Ben & Jerry's flavor, Americone Dream.

But also he wanted to beat Jimmy Fallon's Late Night Snack flavor in something, since his "Eternal Enemy for Six Months" is apparently beating him in sales. So he brought in a scientist and a gadget we didn't understand even after it was explained.

The bottom line was that it enabled a small container of Americone Dream to float through the air, which automatically makes it the ice cream of the future, and perhaps more importantly, better than Late Night Snack.

Jane Lynch Emmys openerJane Lynch kicked off the 2011 Emmy Awards with a musical number filled with celebrity cameos (Leonard Nimoy!), which, coincidentally, is how Jimmy Fallon kicked off the 2010 ceremony.

So, how did the two compare?

Well, Fallon went big with a 'Glee' tribute and Bruce Springsteen cover, while Lynch took the solo route with an original number about the magic of television and how everyone on TV lives in the same building.

Both recruited a ton of celebs to help out, but Fallon had the stars sing along with him while Lynch dropped into different show sets. Both included a requisite 'Dancing With the Stars' dig, though.

Who nabbed the bigger stars?

Jimmy FallonTalk about planning ahead -- Jimmy Fallon is returning to his alma mater 'Saturday Night Live' in December as host for the very first time. Then again, the show kind of predicted this back in 1998 (read on for the explanation).

Although the late night host has dropped by many times as a special guest in the occasional skit, he's never actually hosted the show on which he was a cast member for six years, from 1998 to 2004.

"I've never forgotten where I came from," Fallon said in a press release. "That's why I'm so incredibly honored to be hosting the 'Saturday Night Times' program December 17th on HGTV."

He also reacted to the news on Twitter, saying "I'm incredibly honored to be heading back to 8H where it all started. And by 'it' I mean Will Ferrell's awesome movie career."
