Today, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler join forces in Sisters , a movie about familial dynamics, growing up, and one hell of a house party. It shouldnt exactly be a stretch: If weve learned anything from the duos decades-long friendship, depicting such a close dynamic onscreen isnt going to require Daniel Day-Lewis chops from either comedian. Fans know the ins and outs of the Fey-Poehler sisterhood, but their BFF status is just one part of what makes fans love them. There is, of course, the work they sometimes but not too often make together. Read More...
Is there a late-night war? Not if you look at the ratings. Jimmy Fallon beat Stephen Colbert 56 out of 60 nights, and has only widened his lead in the golden 18-to-49 demographic. This was by design. You may have noticed that the night after Stephen Colbert's highly anticipated debut on September 8 as David Letterman's successor on The Late Show , Jimmy Fallon brought out the big guns the very next night, enlisting BFF Justin Timberlake to do another iteration of History of Rap , and morning host Ellen DeGeneres to face off with him in a lip-sync battle . Writing for THR , Bill Carter reports that this was all "very much the host's idea" to stop Colbert from hitting on a hot streak. In fact, he reports that "one prominent late-night player" said that facing the show that night of September 9 was like "going up against Hiroshima and Nagasaki." (You know,'cause it's a war .) Lately, Colbert has been slipping behind Jimmy Kimmel and even Seth Meyers, who airs an hour after he does. We might be in an era of late-night détente , but it's mostly because Jimmy Fallon is crushing the competition with classroom instruments and a smile. http://www.vulture.com/2015/12/jimmy-fallon-wanted-to-crush-colberts-debut.html
Ariana Grande certainly isn’t the first singer to take on the pop powerhouses of the 90s. In fact, Christina Aguilera herself tackled a Britney Spears impression a couple of times earlier this year. But unlike that viral promotional video for The Voice , Grande didn’t have the benefit of wigs or costumes to help with her imitations of Aguilera, Spears, and Celine Dion. This was all vocal prowess. Read more at Vanity Fair .

The Polar Vortex has coated the pavement outside 30 Rockefeller Center in black ice, but it’s toasty inside, where Jimmy Fallon, delivering one of his final monologues as host of NBC’s Late Night, is going down in flames. “Pope Francis recently invited sixteen rabbis to have lunch with him at the Vatican,” Fallon begins. “Then they got a minister, walked into a bar, and blew everybody’s minds!” A smattering of halfhearted claps rolls through the audience, a response so pathetic that Questlove, leader of Fallon’s house band, the Roots, tries to help out with a drum kick. Fallon attempts the punch line again: “A pope, a minister, and sixteen rabbis walk into a bar!” Silence. Read More... http://www.vulture.com/2014/01/jimmy-fallon-tonight-show-interview.html
