Late Night with Jimmy FallonUFC fighter Chuck Liddell stopped by 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC) to teach the host how to fight like a champ.

Liddell showed Fallon and Fred Armisen how to perform the rear naked choke. Yep, that's what it's called, but thankfully all the clothing stayed on, unlike that video of Liddell that made its way around the Web. After several winces of pain at the hands of Liddell, Fallon got to test out his new skills on Armisen ... and ended up hurting himself.

Check out the video after the jump.

'Dick Cavett Show' Audience Member Recalls the Day a Guest Died

Dick Cavett'The Dick Cavett Show' has long been a talk show of legend. It not only broke the traditional late night mold of jokey sketches and characters, but it also birthed a long list of interesting and historic television moments from the famous "Woodstock" show to his public support of John Lennon as he faced deportation that scored him a special mention on the Richard Nixon tapes.

One of the most infamous moments resurfaced on television when Cavett made a guest appearance on Jimmy Fallon's 'Late Night'. Cavett recalled one episode that the public never got to see because a guest, Dr. James Rodale, actually died on tape.

The episode has never seen the light of day even though the tape still reportedly exists in the network's vault, but Kathy Starcher of Bridgeport, Conn. sat in the audience for that show and recalled what it was like to watch a TV moment that only a few people have ever seen. Read our interview with Mrs. Starcher after the jump about her fleeting foray into TV history.

As Barbara Walters prepares to show viewers her annual list of the 10 Most Fascinating People of the Year (pictured, featuring Lady Gaga and Walters) in a special airing tonight, we realized that TV gives far too much airtime to people at the other end of the spectrum. With that thought, here are the year's 10 least fascinating people on TV. Let's all try to make it a New Year's resolution that we won't be talking about these people's overexposure again a year from now.

Jimmy Fallon has started turning Late Night into his La-Z-Boy

Jimmy Fallon and Bradley Cooper on Late NightJimmy Fallon's first week on the job wasn't great, but it had some promising moments that showed the former SNLer was capable of doing good if he could just get comfortable in his new pad.

Fallon's exuberance for the job shined through, but his nerves sometimes seemed to get the best of him. That's natural. If I was the face of a multimillion dollar television show beamed to hundreds of thousands of people every night, I would consider my work a success if I could get through each show with a clean pair of shorts.

The host has come a long way in the last three months. He seems less nervous and more comfortable as the captain of Late Night, and it has made him and his show funnier. The cleanliness of his shorts are not known. I don't know anyone that close to Fallon's staff.

Brian Williams is funnier than you will ever be - VIDEO

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 4th 2009 10:07AM
If you asked the average TV watcher what celebrity makes the funniest late night interviews, news anchors would probably be the furthest answer from their minds. It would also just be after physicists, felons convicted of violent crimes and Joaquin Phoenix.

Lately, however, one dedicated newsman has become the most entertaining guest on the late night talk show circuit with the kind of timing, humor and comedic gravitas that even some so-called "professional" comedians have trouble displaying. It could with the greatest of ease turn his own news program into the most hilarious show on television, if the news he reported didn't make us want to jab a corkscrew in our eyes.

That man is NBC's Brian Williams.

5 Reasons Jimmy Fallon Might Not Fail

by Maggie Furlong, posted Feb 26th 2009 1:02PM
Jimmy Fallon might not be the next Conan O'Brien yet, but he's no Carson Daly either.

He's a 'Saturday Night Live' vet, a Grammy nominee, a three-time host of MTV Movie and Video Music Awards shows and, yes, even a 'People' magazine's 50 Most Beautiful alum. So why wouldn't Jimmy Fallon be a good heir to Conan O'Brien's 'Late Night' throne?

It obviously takes more than some comedy roots, a love for all things pop culture and a head of fiercely gravity-defying hair to captain a late night talk show, but who's to say Fallon doesn't have that same magic touch that made O'Brien such a cult favorite ...

While we're not placing any bets for or against Fallon's post-midnight success, we do feel qualified to plead his case to any total naysayers out there. So, without further ado, may we present the five reasons we think Jimmy Fallon could possibly be better than everyone thinks he'll be -- and maybe, just maybe, make this whole late night thing work. -- By Maggie Furlong
