Elizabeth Berkeley Signs on for 'Saved by the Bell' ReunionJimmy Fallon has made it his personal mission to have the cast of 'Saved by the Bell' reunite on his show. He's even created an online petition and so far has convinced several cast members including Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez and Dennis Haskins to participate.

On 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC), Elizabeth Berkley, who played Jessie Spano on the show, also signed on for a reunion. "I love everyone. We grew up together. So, I would be up for it. I know fans would love it," she said.

Tiger Woods, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Jimmy Fallon recognized that it was kind of a big deal that Tiger Woods was willing to make an appearance on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:35AM ET on ABC). After all, thanks to his antics the past year or so, late night shows have had very little work to do when it comes to coming up with their nightly monologues.

"That is like a magical thing to happen, your awful pain," Fallon told Woods. "And we laughed at your pain. I mean, not even making jokes. It kind of wrote itself."

Woods was a good sport about the whole thing as Fallon went on about how great it was making light of the struggles of Woods's personal life. Maybe it helped soften the blow that Fallon was so sincere in his thanks for all the great material.

Ice cream wars on 'The Colbert Report'Earlier this week, Ben & Jerry's gave Jimmy Fallon his own ice cream flavor in honor of the second anniversary of 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.' This didn't sit well with Stephen Colbert, who wants to be the only late night TV host with a Ben & Jerry's flavor.

So, on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30ET PM on Comedy Central), Colbert declared ice cream war on Fallon. Then, just when Colbert was going to melt Fallon's "Late Night Snack" ice cream with a hairdryer, who should show up on set but Fallon himself.

"Let the pint go, Stefan, or I'm going to give your ice cream a Neapolitan necktie," Fallon threatened, holding a pint of Colbert's AmeriCone Dream ice cream.

Jimmy Fallon Channels Charlie Sheen, Sells His 'Winning' Cologne (VIDEO)

Jimmy Fallon Impersonates Charlie SheenGiven all the hilariously outrageous comments Charlie Sheen has offered up over the last week, it was high time Jimmy Fallon put his stellar impressionist skills to work on the actor. On 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC), the host fashioned himself after Sheen in his epic 'Piers Morgan Tonight' interview (wearing NYC T-shirt, etc.), and channeled the TV star in an advertisement for his "cologne" called (very appropriately) Winning.

Between puffs on his cigarette, he shared a pensive stream of non sequiturs, i.e., familiar Sheen quotes with an added twist: "Adonis DNA. I'm a bitchin' rock star. Blood of a tiger. I'm like Zeus in a speedo. The only drug I'm on is Charlie Sheen. Wanna know Chuck's real name? Chaim Levine. What's that? What's my real name? Carlos Estevez. Cómo se dice winning?!"

Liza Minnelli Sings 'You Fascinate Me So' to Jimmy Fallon on 'Late Night' (VIDEO)

Liza Minnelli, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Liza Minnelli was on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:35AM ET on NBC) talking about her latest album, and she dropped a little bombshell on Jimmy Fallon. She said one of the songs on the album makes her think of him.

She then broke into 'You Fascinate Me So,' serenading the late night host.

Now, we've seen women sit or lie on furniture while singing, but we've never seen the man they were singing to do so. Nevertheless, Fallon was apparently so mesmerized by the performance that he couldn't bear to be as far away from Minnelli as it would take him to go around his desk.

So he clambered over it.

Jimmy Fallon Has a Suspicious Mole Removed Live, on 'Dr. Oz' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 24th 2011 1:37AM
Jimmy Fallon, 'The Dr. Oz Show'It's important to get any suspicious moles checked out. And if you're Jimmy Fallon, why not get it checked out on 'The Dr. Oz Show' (Weekdays, Syndicated)? That way, everyone can see what a baby you are.

Fallon was certainly squeamish, though we can't blame him after they started off by showing him some enormous pieces of medical equipment.

"This is ridiculous! This is a giant saw! What's going on, guys?" he asked. Later, they brought out a giant needle. "What is that? I can still get out of this, right?"

But Fallon stuck it out for the duration, though the audience's reactions got into his head, while viewers at home got a nice close-up look at the procedure of having the mole removed. In other words, if you're squeamish you might not want to watch.

William H. Macy Used to Babysit 'Shameless' Co-Star Joan Cusack and Brother John Cusack (VIDEO)

William H. Macy, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Have you ever imagined that Hollywood stars all grew up together and interacted even when they were younger, and well before they were famous? Well, in one neighborhood in Chicago, that's exactly what happened.

At least, that's what William H. Macy told Jimmy Fallon on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC).

If it's true -- and he says it's his story and he's sticking to it -- both the Cusacks and the Pivens lived nearby. So while he knew Jeremy Piven, it was at the Cusack household that he had more interactions.

"They would hire me to do light carpentry," he revealed, indicating that a set of shelves he built are still in that house.

Jimmy Fallon and Higgins Eat and Crack Jokes on 'Top Chef All Stars' (VIDEO)

Jimmy Fallon, 'Top Chef All Stars'It was an extra helping of laughs all around when 'Late Night' host Jimmy Fallon and his announcer, Higgins, were guest judges on 'Top Chef All Stars' (Wed., 10PM ET on Bravo) this week. The contestants presented them with meals involving pulled pork and sausage, and that was all they needed.

After critiquing the meal, Fallon turned to Higgins. "You pull your own pork, right?" he asked his sidekick.

"I pull my own pork a lot. But if Angelo's going to pull it for me ... " he said referring to the contestant who's meal they'd just sampled. He left the thought unfinished, but we think you can piece it together.

The KennedysEven though multiple cable networks have passed on airing the controversial 'Kennedys' miniseries, it could still come to a TV screen near you.

According to Deadline, producers are in talks to sign a syndication deal with Tribune Broadcasting. After Showtime, DirecTV and Starz all passed on the eight-part series, which was canceled by the History Channel after concerns over historical accuracy, several basic cable networks reportedly showed interest in airing the film as well. However, Deadline reports that the producers would rather sell 'The Kennedys' to syndication.

Jimmy Fallon Turns Hoda's Flo Rida Karaoke Into 'West Side Story' Danceparty on 'Today' (VIDEO)

Jimmy Fallon dances 'West Side Story' to Flo Rida on 'Today'The "iHoda Playlist" segment on 'Today' (Weekdays, 7AM on NBC) is supposed to be a karaoke singalong featuring Hoda's favorite songs. But when Jimmy Fallon subbed for Kathie Lee Gifford today, he turned it into something else entirely.

Hoda introduced the song 'Who Dat Girl' by Flo Rida featuring Akon. But when she began awkwardly dancing to the song, shaking her hands up and down and snapping her fingers, Fallon couldn't help himself.

Fallon cracked up and mimmicked her seated snapping, asking "Are we going to get into 'West Side Story?'" He then launched into the 'Jet Song' from that musical, singing, "Once you're a Jet, you're a Jet all the way..." and got out of his chair and broke out some Jerome Robbins-influenced choreography.

He made it back to the desk in time for the chorus of the Flo Rida song, but by then Hoda had lost the thread completely.

The Year in Celebrity Impressions

by Jane Murphy, posted Dec 30th 2010 10:30AM
Anne HathawayWho doesn't love a good celebrity impression -- and who doesn't cringe at a bad one? In 2010, several impersonations went viral, generating chuckles and awe. We had comedians' impressions getting healthy screen time, like Kevin Pollak, Jimmy Fallon, and the up-and-coming Jay Pharoah. And we also had actors busting out take-offs on fellow thespians -- yes, Anne Hathaway's savage rendering of Katie Holmes on 'Saturday Night Live' is on this list. It was a truly a vintage year for people being other people.

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. You can tell Jay Pharoah has great affection for the greats he mimics, like Denzel Washington, Eddie Murphy. On the other hand, this year's rash of Jay Leno impressions were polished with bile.

Jimmy Fallon Sings an Xmas Song -- Featuring Sarah Palin, the iPad, and the BP Oil Spill (VIDEO)

Jimmy Fallon Sings an Xmas Song -- Featuring Sarah Palin, the iPad, and the BP Oil SpillThe holiday season is a time to look back and reflect. And 2010 has been quite a year. There was a massive oil spill, a Sarah Palin-based reality show, and something called "the iPad" -- which was like a really really big iPhone, or like a slightly smaller computer without buttons, because who needs buttons?

It was such an amazing year that we needed Jimmy Fallon and 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC) to sum it all up. Accompanied by a choir, Jimmy led an impromptu rendition of 'The 12 Days of Christmas,' but with the lyrics modified to take in all the events of 2010. And what did happen in 2010? In addition to everything listed above, the following things took place this year ...

Six Late-Night Talk Show Hosts: Winners and Losers

by Gary Susman, posted Dec 18th 2010 2:00PM
'I'm With Coco' PosterCountdown to Festivus on Dec. 23: On the sixth day of Festivus, TV gave us to ... six late-night talk show hosts battling.

Hard to remember, but at this time a year ago, David Letterman was facing one of the biggest crises of his career in the wake of his sex-and-blackmail scandal, Conan O'Brien was just settling into his job at 'The Tonight Show,' Jay Leno was tanking in primetime and Jimmy Fallon was still finding his voice as a late-late-night host.

The late night landscape has changed a bit since then.

It was clear a year ago that there was trouble on the horizon, but few (save, perhaps, for Andy Richter) anticipated the earthquake to come. Most of the cataclysm occurred in January, when NBC decided to bring Leno back to 11:35, and O'Brien decided to take a golden parachute after just seven months on the job rather than follow Leno at 12:05.

The aftershocks from that event, which continue to this day, affected not just the two of them, but also Letterman, Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Craig Ferguson. (Not to mention a supporting cast of millions, including network bigwigs, obstinate local stations, and angry fans nationwide.)

Miraculously, all six night owls are still working -- though maybe not for much longer. How did the rollercoaster year shake out for each of them? Let's see ...

Jessica Alba Shows Off Her Dance Moves on 'Late Night' (VIDEO)

Jessica Alba Shows Off Her Dance Moves on 'Late Night'"Do you go to clubs?" Jimmy Fallon said to Jessica Alba. Wait. Is this an interview, or is this a pick-up line? On 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC), Jimmy and his guest discussed the various aspects of "clubbing" -- while simultaneously saying that they were way too old and wrinkled to go out to night clubs.

But wait! Jessica Alba is only 29. And she's been named the sexiest woman in the world by 'FHM' magazine. (Sadly, 'Maxim' magazine only ranked her as the second sexist woman alive.) If she isn't cool enough to go clubbing, what hope is there for us mere mortals? Still, Jessica and Jimmy were self-deprecating while discussing the whole "club scene," referencing their own highly awkward "head-bobbing" dance style.
