Jimmy boils down a week's worth of a TV show to one sentence to allow his viewers to more quickly catch up on them.

The number of the door opened corresponds to the number of days left before the Derby. Behind each door is a stereotypical fancy hat like the ones spectators wear to the event. Jimmy picks a number and whomever in the audience has that number wins that day's hat along with a mint julep offered by Jimmy.

Following a story in his April 23, monologue about a depressed panda in Chinanamed Seesha, Fallon mentioned that scientists had put a TV in the cage to cheer up the panda. Fallon then told a couple panda jokes for Seesha, and after each joke, a man in a panda suit would cut in front of the screen and do a short dance.

Eventually, he worked his way into the hallway where he kept dancing as the Roots continued to play his song. The panda returned the next night, and Fallon sent out a hashtag called FallonPanda to gather name suggestions. The next night, it was announced the panda's name was "Hashtag. It was later revealed that Ben Stiller was the man in the Hashtag costume, although when Stiller returned as a guest, Chris Rock had taken over mascot duties.

When the announcer Steve Higgins says a joke that is both very funny and very cheesy, he will "retire" by waiving to the crowd and walking off the stage.

He will then come back, appearing exhausted, then explaining something crazy that happened to him that caused him to come back. On other occasions, Fallon will "retire. Whenever his predecessor Jay Leno is a guest, Jimmy will feign an injury during the monologue in the form of allegedly pulling a muscle and Leno will have to "tag in" and take his spot for a few minutes while he recovers.

In this conceit, Fallon sets up the premise that he had found an angry man ranting on the street and wants to give the man an opportunity to vent and get his complaints off his chest. Leno then comes in and gives his monologue in the form of a rant, finishing by storming off the set in a rage, sometimes knocking down a staffer on his way out the door.

One occasion had Jimmy supposedly got a tickle in his throat while telling Hillary Clinton jokes. Billy Crystal took over for the remainder of the monologues. A segment introduced on the show's first episode, in which Jimmy invites audience members to come on stage and lick objects, such as a lawn mower or a bowling ball, for ten dollars. Drew Barrymore and Kelly Ripa have played the game as celebrities. Introduced in the show's second week, this segment features a game with loosely defined rules and bizarre scoring whose theme song is an off-key version of " The Final Countdown ".

Three audience members are chosen to spin a wheel containing various carpet samples. The wheel includes a "mystery sample", which is revealed by the announcer to both the audience and the contestants prior to game play. Each contestant spins the wheel just once and is awarded a seemingly arbitrary point value Jimmy tells the second contestant that the point value the first contestant scored is the maximum number of points a contestant can possibly get, and then asks if the second player thinks he or she can beat it.

Each game contains the speed round with a "carpet sample fun fact": a piece of trivia, and the "lightning round" in which the contestant must "name as many things as possible" in three seconds after which Jimmy names a thing that is none of the things the contestant mentionedand a "carpet sample cartoon break", which is followed by a "the making of" featurette, then a "the making of the making of" featurette, then an epilogue of the makers of them.

If a contestant lands on a piece that has already been won, Jimmy turns the wheel back five spaces. A seemingly arbitrary winner, chosen by Higgins who wasn't paying attention because he was arguing with his wife on the phonewins the sample of carpet on which the wheel stopped during their spin.

Jimmy picks three random audience members to come down. They are shown a table covered in various "prizes", including a large-screen plasma TV or a MacBook, or other similarly desirable popular itemtickets to a cleaning products convention, a used trumpet, lingerie, recorded VHS tapes, donuts for the entire audience, a box of rocks, a coffee mug, a year's worth of back issues of Orthopedics magazine, a pipe carved into Jimmy's likeness, a second rave, and other similar kitschy items.

When Jimmy gives the cue, the contestants must snap a picture with their cellphone of whatever item is on the screen. The contestant wins whatever item of which they have taken a picture. One unlucky female contestant's phone was so slow to take a picture that all she photographed was the game's logo after the prizes had stopped flashing. As a consolation prize, she was awarded "donuts for the entire audience".

A frequent prize is "The Call of the Wolf Waker": a man Mike Dicenzo covered head to toe in furs performs a wolf call using his cupped hands; while he is performing the call, footage of sleeping wolves waking up is shown. In a parody of Dance Your Ass OffJimmy invites three audience members on stage and challenges them to put on a neon yellow wool knit cap and yellow rubber gloves and try to get them off only by whipping their body parts around.

Jimmy warns that "smurfing" wearing one's cap loosely and high on the head in the manner of a Smurf is not allowed. Two points are awarded for removing a hat, with one point each for the gloves; ties are broken based on audience applause.

Losers receive a T-shirt. Jimmy closes the segment by reciting a rhyming verse, which in some instances of the sketch becomes absurdly long and about an embarrassing health problem Jimmy has such as genital warts. One version featured quotes from the erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey. Another featured quotes from recent Celebrity Apprentice bootee Gary Busey. This installment had only two audience members, with Busey himself also competing; Busey was named the winner, but Jimmy revealed that "friends, family, and the actual Gary Busey" were not eligible to receive prizes.

The most recent installment featured quotes from the cast of Duck Dynasty. The winner, determined by audience applause, receives a karaoke machine, and losers receive T-shirts or hoodies. Jimmy invites three guests on stage, and they must attempt to throw the most hot dogs through holes carved in the mouths of large about 6 feet tall celebrity faces. An installment of the game after the House vote on the health care legislation featured Rep. Henry Waxman D-CA ; the Congressman's face had a smaller-than-usual mouth hole but added cutouts for his nostrils.

In the case of a tie, contestants participate in a sudden-death toss-off. The winner receives a hot dog toasterand the losers receive a package of hot dogs. Three audience members play air drums similar to air guitar along to a short drum-heavy instrumental track played by The Roots.

The winner is selected by audience applause, who receives a drum kit donated by Yamaha and Zildjian. The two losers receive drumheads autographed by The Roots. Three audience members are each shown three close-up photos of different man boobsand are asked to pick which one belongs to a particular celebrity. The three photos are given punny names such as " Areola 51 " or " Yo Flabba-Flabba ".

Winners receive a man boobs-themed wall calendar, and losers receive a "Man Boobs" T-shirt. Two pairs of audience members compete. One member of each pair rolls a specially marked die to determine whether they will be spitting or receiving.

The spitter takes a sip of water, and then the receiver recites the punch line to a provided joke usually in the form of "[Normal phrase]? I thought you said [similar-sounding sexual phrase]! Audience applause determines the winning team. Sometimes, Jimmy will have the spitter and receiver switch positions if their first spit-take is particularly good or they have extra time.

The winning team receives a pair of hand towels embroidered with the "Competitive Spit-Takes" logo, while the losing team receives a pair of moist towelettes. Three audience members select styles of dance e. Irish stepdanceballetor disco out of Jimmy's "Velvety Dance Bag", and then attempt to perform that dance style after being hung by a harness ten feet in the air. The winner is selected by audience applause. The winner receives a dancing-themed prize, such as Nintendo Wii and a dancing game or Arthur Murray dancing lessons, while the losers receive T-shirts.

Before the show, Jimmy selects members of the audience who are musicians but do not otherwise know each other. They are split into two "instant bands" and are given about half an hour to come up with a band name, design an album cover, and write a song to perform. Winners are determined by audience applause.

Prior to the show, a member of the audience Terry Patterson from the San Francisco area was selected and both bands had to write a song about her. Similar to Battle of the Instant Bands, Jimmy assembles two dance crews from the audience and has them each choreograph a dance routine in under an hour. Two audience members are given a scene to perform with Jimmy in reverse walking backward, etc. After they complete the scene, the footage is then shown reversed so that it looks normal.

The winner is determined by audience applause, who receives a piece of reversible clothing such as a jacket or a jerseywhile the loser receives a t-shirt with a reversed Late Night logo. Two teams of three male audience members race in a relay to pass a Spanx body-shaping undergarment over their bodies as fast as possible. After taking the garment off of a mannequin, the first person steps into it and then pulls the garment over his head. The next team member then pulls the garment over his head and off over his feet.

The third team member reverses direction once again and pulls the garment on feet-first. After pulling the garment over his head, the third team member then races to deposit the garment in a basket the "Spanx Bank".

The other team members may assist in the passing of the garment, but cannot bunch it up or fold it onto itself. Three audience members "try to decipher the garbled-mouth ramblings of Rickie Johnston, a pig farmer with a real anger-management problem," according to Jimmy. Johnston played by Bobby Tisdale is a stereotypical redneckdressed in a pair of overalls, a trucker's hat, and no shirt, in addition to a huge mouthful of chewing tobacco and an exaggerated Southern accent.

The game has three rounds, worth 10,and points. The winner of the first installment of the game had the choice between a chocolate-covered horseshoe and a "beer-amid" a pyramid made from cement-filled beer cans as a prize and chose the beer-amid. The second installment of the game had as its prize a package of paper plates.

The third installment awarded a watch made from a can of chewing tobacco. The losers receive a bag of frozen tater totswith Jimmy giving Rickie a bag as well they're his favorite. Three audience members are shown pictures of non-celebrities and each must guess the first and last name of the person shown.

The images of non-famous men flashes quickly with one of a famous man second to last usually s sitcom stars. The first two contestants get a single guy to name, but the last contestant plays the "lightning round", where they try to name eight guys in 20 seconds. The spirit of the game is similar to " Wheel of Carpet Samples ". Due to "lack of budget", the segment uses scene transition graphics from Home Improvement between contestants.

Actor Charlie Day played the game's lightning round on the July 11, episode. Jimmy claims this is "the game that everyone is talking about. Jimmy then brings in two male audience members who singularly select alternately a bucket held by each model similar to Deal or No Deal that is filled with an item such as food e.

The losing contestant receives a Late Night bucket hat Jimmy and The Roots then begin a rap interlude about the bucket hat. The initial installment of the game used 16 buckets instead of When only six buckets remain, the game enters the "double trouble" phase, where each contestant selects a bucket to be tipped simultaneously.

Contestants also a receive new clean clothing backstage afterwards. Jimmy had audience members roll a twenty-sided die with a letter on each face likely taken from the game Scattergories and say as many words that start with that letter, with rules such as no proper nouns, no long pauses between words, etc.

While two audience members are blindfolded and wear noise-canceling headphones on stage, Jimmy selects another audience member to come down and photocopy their face; after doing so, that person returns to their seat. Singularly each of two contestants are given the photocopy and the task to run into the audience to find the photocopied person. While they are searching, the Roots play music whose tempo slows or fastens depending on how "hot" or "cold" the contestant is in their search.

Ties are broken by "kicking awesomeness" as voted on by the audience. Five audience members each donate one of their possessions to a communal "jackpot". Each of the five audience members has their name on a tile in a bucket. Jimmy singularly pulls a tile from the bucket to eliminate contestants until only one contestant is left, who wins everything in the jackpot.

The other four contestants receive Late Night T-shirts or sweatshirts. Three audience members are singularly shown a collectible doll for five seconds, and then have thirty seconds to assume the pose of the doll as closely as possible using a box of props and costumes.

Contestants that have yet to play are placed beneath large blue sensory-deprivation "domes of silence". Losers receive doll-sized Late Night T-shirts. A series of stunts, each with an associated point value, cycles rapid-fire on the "Dartboard of Insanity" the Sharp Three audience members singularly shoot a Nerf dart gun at the Dartboard, stopping the cycle on a particular stunt.

Whichever contestant completes the stunt with the highest point value is declared the winner. Only a few of the "available" games are ever played. Some of the games are highlighted by Jimmy before the game; some are named and also described — these are usually over the top. Still others only ever appear in the rotation. The last game to be played is always "Dude Spoon". Some contestants land on "Dude Spoon," but are given the option to spin again; they then land on "Double Dude Spoon", where they have to spoon with two dudes instead of just one.

The point value of games can vary from episode to episode. Two audience members compete, at least one male. Unfortunately, all of the questions are in obscure Jeopardy!

The last regular question is played in the "double trouble" format, where two portions of hair are at stake. The question is usually in the category "Numbers", and the question is usually "I'm thinking of a number between 1 and — what is it? After doing so, Jimmy reveals the correct number was actually their first guess. The "lightning round" features categories flashing by quickly, with easy categories like music, TV, and movies being skipped over for another difficult category at the end.

As a consolation prize, the contestants are given "Ed Zeppelin" T-shirts also Album) prize in the "Wheel of Game Shows" game and a pack of Nad's body hair removal strips. To date, no one has answered a single question correctly. Another surreal game in the spirit of "Wheel of Carpet Samples". Three audience members play mini-games selected by pressing the "game pud" a buzzer as the options rotate on the Sharp similar to the game show Press Your Luck.

To this end, Jimmy urges the contestants to shout "No Guttenbergs! After all contestants inevitably tie at zero points since Jimmy doesn't tell them how to play the games, even after a "tiebreaker" such as "Brownie Points", "Shut Your Pie Hole", or "Egg On Your Face"they all receive copies of the Saturday Night Live board game with three pieces missing and Led Zeppelin T-shirts where the first "L" has fallen off so that they read "Ed Zeppelin".

Two audience members compete. Each is blindfolded and fed a cracker with three different foods on top such as pepperonipeanut butter, and Swedish fish.

They must try to name as many of the ingredients as they can. Three audience members compete. They are each given three nouns an object, a place, and a name - e. Barbie DollFranceand Charlie Sheen they must work into a second freestyle rap. The nouns are generated by "Rhyme Wave", a "robot" played by Tariq Trotter with a computerized voice that appears on the Sharp The winner is determined by audience applause.

Each is played a new song by the Roots that they must memorize and then immediately perform. The contestant that has yet to play is placed beneath a large blue sensory-deprivation "dome of silence". Each is given a topic by Jimmy and is given 10 seconds to give as many words as possible relating to that topic.

After time is up, they are given a score by the "Brainmaster" Mike Dicenzo, wearing a brown robe, turban, and a large, light-up brain. The winner is given a special prize in an ornate wooden chest selected by the Brainmaster. The two losers receive cans of Turtle Wax. The winner's prize, coincidentally, is also Turtle Wax. In one playing, the contestants received giftcards to Subwayand the winner also received a bag of potato chips autographed by Tony Danza.

They are each given a song to sing karaoke-style — with the catch that they will be wearing noise-canceling headphones so they cannot hear themselves sing. The winner is determined by audience applause, who wins a pair of noise-canceling headphones, while the losers receive Late Night hoodies. On May 15,Jimmy invented a new game. Two audience members, a young man and a young woman, were invited to the stage for a dancing competition. Jimmy placed them on either side of a small barrier so that they could not see each otherthen he called out the names of made-up dances which they performed for a few moments, while the Roots played music.

Jimmy selects three audience members and asks how they think the President will mispronounce a single word. Once selected, he gives them a T-shirt with the mispronounced word on it as a prize for participating. Jimmy would claim that Mattel created a new toy called "The Trump Magic 8-Ball " and that he actually has one. He would then select three audience members to ask the ball a yes-or-no question.

Once asked, Jimmy would repeat the question to the ball, shake, and flip it over to reveal a small clip of President Trump played inside of it "answering" the question. Introduced in the third week of the show, this segment consists of the audience and show members participating in an experience together. In the first show, these experiences were to eat a Warhead sour candy, wear a Snuggyand make a bird call.

Other "Shared Experiences" have involved playing with an inflated beach ball and shooting Nerf guns at A. Miles while he quietly played Jenga by himself. During the show's first week, on March 5,Jimmy picked three random audience members and elected one of them to be president of the audience for the night. Attack ads from his opponent were also shown, accusing the president of being a flip flopper when it came to liking Jimmy's jokes. The old president was later "impeached" on April 17,and a new president was appointed.

On March 10,after Jimmy complained that neither of the previous presidents ever showed up to work, he "elected" a new president by picking one audience member at random.

Jimmy gave the new president a "presidential starter kit", including a copy of the Late Night by-laws, a quill pen, a carton of cigarettes, a stapler, and a first lady with "shapely arms". After an attack ad on behalf of another audience member, NBC Nightly News weekend anchor Lester Holt gave a news report about the president's short term thus far. A recurring sketch in which audience members are called upon to stand in for celebrities who are having public feuds and come to a mutual understanding.

One sketch involved four audience members reenacting the feud between Paula AbdulRandy JacksonSimon Cowelland Ryan Seacrest regarding the new contract offered to Mr. Seacrest as the host of American Idol and the fact that she wasn't made a similar offer by the show's producers she would eventually announce that she was not returning to the show.

Jimmy asks audience members random questions. House band The Roots then makes up a song about them on the spot using that information in a music style of Jimmy's choosing reggae, '80s pop, doo-wop, etc. When Ringo Starr was a guest on the show, there was an all- Beatles version; during " Rolling Stones Week", there was an all-Stones version. On the October 2, episode, Alec Baldwin was selected; his song was about the seventh and final season premiere of 30 Rock.

The camera isolates on random audience members and a Facebook status for them appears which says an intimate personal thought about them. Same aspect of What's on Your Facebook?

They are then asked to concentrate for 15 seconds on a particular subject provided by Jimmy. Then, after pressing the button on the Think-O-Sync-ometer, Jimmy "pokes" each contestant's cerebral cortex nipple, allowing the Think-O-Sync-ometer to "project" the audience member's thoughts. Jimmy selects members of the audience and puts their cellphones into the "Hacker " which Jimmy claims is top-secret technology that only he and Rupert Murdoch know aboutwhich scans the phone and plays the last received voicemail, which is usually something embarrassing like a bookstore calling to let them know the Justin Bieber books they ordered have come in, or a gay strip club offering a man a job, or a man's college roommate reminiscing about drunken pranks.

Jimmy provides the audience with paper and packs of markers and asks them to draw whatever they want. He then goes into the audience and reads off some audience members' names and has them show off their drawings. Every night during the week of February 7 to 11,the Late Night crew choose one male audience member with straight hair and gave him a perm. He was interviewed with friends before the procedure, then the perm was revealed during the show. Jimmy wore a perm wig during the sketches.

Jimmy then gives each child a Hawaiian shirt and a metal detector an homage to his own childhood pastime of searching for buried treasure in his backyard. An homage to America's Got TalentJimmy selects members of the audience and has them demonstrate a talent or perform a trick. An interactive portion of the monologue, in which Jimmy shows the audience two news stories: one serious and political, the other obscure and local. Based on what the audience calls it, Jimmy would proceed to tell a joke based on one of the news stories.

The first player to sink two balls wins increased to three balls when Jimmy played McEnroe. When Jimmy played Kathie Lee Giffordthey played the "classier" version "wine pong" using glasses filled with chardonnay.

However, the song becomes an extended narrative set in the offices of Late Nightdepicting Jimmy asking a member of the show's graphics department to create "Head Swap" images.

Portions of the video tape may have been "accidentally" taped over with 's sitcoms. Jimmy finds some old tapes of men from a s video dating service that used to tape in Studio 6-B called "Cupid's Arrow". The videos are low quality possibly because they were produced by Video Vision.

Jimmy said he recognized him and Milky J explained that since Hubble is being phased out and replaced by the James Webb Space Telescopehe'd found a new interest.

Jimmy then convinced him that Hubble is still something to get excited about, which made him go back into his old shtick.

Somewhat similar to "Obama Expressions", Jimmy shows a series of photos, each showing a man and a woman. Jimmy then explains what the people in the photos are thinking. The first person's thought is somewhat regular e. This is so romantic! This is so humiliating! Similar to "He Said, She Said", photos of people with their pets are shown, with the pets' thoughts being the punchlines. Jimmy reads off some famous quotes that he found on Facebook, along with some other quotes allegedly by the same person, but of dubious provenance.

Lance Armstrong : "I'll spend the rest of my life trying to earn back trust and apologize to people for the rest of my life. Often after a speech by President Obama, Jimmy will give a timeline of events, starting with actual statements from the speech.

The bit will eventually introduce Vice President Joe Bidenwho will interrupt Obama in the manner of a spoiled child. While cleaning his office, Jimmy claims to have found some VHS cassettes from a s production company named Video Vision.

The videos are usually short instructional pieces such as "Dealing with Sexual Harassment in the Workplace"or holiday guides with bizarre factual errors such as " Christmas was founded in Downtown Europe ".

They are hosted by Jimmy as James Fallon with a spiked haircut, thick glasses, cheesy sweater and faded jeans, and have many of the hallmarks of video production of the mids, including low video quality, awkward scene transitions, choppy edits, low-quality special effects, and cheesy graphics which include typos and spelling errors.

Portions of the video tape may have been "accidentally" taped over with 's sitcoms. Jimmy finds some old tapes of men from a s video dating service that used to tape in Studio 6-B called "Cupid's Arrow". The videos are low quality possibly because they were produced by Video Vision. The men featured are unattractive losers, and Jimmy stated that most of them were probably still available.

The sketch was later made into a Dating Game -style TV show hosted by Tony Sanders played by Higgins with three of the men: Chester Mann played by Salahuddina perverted part-time shoe salesman and freeloader; James Spadge played by Milesa nerd with unusual medical conditions who lives with his mother; and Jose played by Jimmya flamboyant musician who joined the service to prove to his friends he isn't gay; and a female audience member as the contestant, with the video quality downgraded to look like it was from the s.

Jose is always the winner. To get the audience excited about the show's sponsors, a fake gospel preacher named Rev.

Daryl Bivens played by Bashir Salahuddin preaches about the products. After Jimmy gives a shout-out to someone, Questlove asks Jimmy if he can give a shout-out to someone as well. After doing so, other members of the cast and crew usually including Kamal Graywriter Morgan Murphydirector Dave Diomedi always to his wife and about their sex lifeTariq Trotter usually about some sort of craft or cooking project; Trotter wears a blondish-red wig while demonstrating itor a character played by Bashir Salahuddin interrupt and ask for shout-outs to people or things of their own.

At the end, Jimmy quickly recaps each of the shout-outs. Jimmy shows a series of velvet Elvises or "velvet Elvii" as Jimmy claims they are also called showing Presley in contemporary situations, such as listening to an iPodskydiving, or appearing alongside people like Neytiri from the movie AvatarFox News commentator Glenn Beckor the cast of The Big Bang Theory.

One of the velvet Elvises will usually include a pull-string activated "voice box" Jimmy pulls the string and holds the painting in front of his mouth so the audience cannot see him providing the voice.

The last painting is often of Elvis in a beige jumpsuit performing a particularly boring activity e. After Jimmy comments on just how boring the activity is, a Boring Elvis impersonator comes out and sings a song about the activity. Jimmy claims to have had a character left out of various movies and video games, such as Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. He shows us a series of outtakes of him spouting bad attempts at catchphrases.

Jimmy will also sometimes enlist actors promoting new movies to be in outtakes from those movies with him including Jude Law for Sherlock Holmes and Kim Cattrall for Sex and the City 2. After Jimmy passingly mentions the Hubble Space Telescopea man in the audience dressed head to toe in New York Yankees apparel named Milky J Bashir Salahuddin enthusiastically begins listing and showing photos of astronomical features photographed by the telescope, each one punctuated by him yelling "Hubble gotchu!

This sketch's timing may be based on the song "Rock You" by The Roots. He appeared in a recent shout-outs sketch, sending shout-outs to molecular models. Jimmy said he recognized him and Milky J explained that since Hubble is being phased out and replaced by the James Webb Space Telescopehe'd found a new interest.

Jimmy then convinced him that Hubble is still something to get excited about, which made him go back into his old shtick. Later, Jimmy mentioned a new planet, and Milky J showed up and went into his routine, but Jimmy once again mentioned how Hubble is being replaced by the James Webb telescope.

Milky J recently appeared in another shoutouts sketch, this time giving a shoutout to gravity: breaking his unfaithful wife's valuables by dropping them and saying "gravity got it".

Jimmy begins telling a story, but a man in the crowd wearing a Hawaiian shirt and a New York Mets bucket hat Mike Dicenzo interrupts, linking the beginning of Jimmy's story to Late Night via an extended word associationafter which he says "how you like me now? After he does it twice, Jimmy does one as well, causing the man to declare Jimmy the superior player and leave the studio in shame, despite Jimmy's repeated attempts to make him stay.

During the sketch that aired March 11,as Bucket Hat guy went to leave, Laina the Overly Attached Girlfriend appeared near the exit, wearing an identical Hawaiian shirt and bucket hat. Despite Jimmy's attempts to get the two of them together, Bucket Hat Guy retreated from the exit to the safety of Jimmy's guest chair. The most recent edition of this sketch involved Federer buying "a round of drinks on the Federer," then serving a tennis ball between his legs so it causes John McEnroe 's drink to spill, which in turn provokes McEnroe to stand up angrily and yell, "Come on, Roger!

Questlovean avid music collector, always states he thinks the songs and artists are fake since he's never heard of them. Together with the guys from the Found Footage FestivalJimmy presents selections from old low-quality instructional VHS videos and suggests the audience avoid them such as the owner's video for the Rejuvenique face mask, Superchops 4 Bass with Beaver Feltonand Fun with Ventriloquism.

In the wake of Charlie Sheen 's post-rehab media blitz, Jimmy appeared as Sheen in two commercials: one selling his cologne "Winning", and the other selling a Time Life collection of CDs containing outrageous quotes by him.

On August 9,Jimmy joined anchor Bob Costas in studio at the Summer Olympics in Londonand showed a version of the sketch with Brand reading the special Olympics edition of the magazine.

Jimmy boils down a week's worth of a TV show to one sentence to allow his viewers to more quickly catch up on them. The result is a humorous but still appropriate sentence, like Rachel Maddow from The Rachel Maddow Show being edited to say " Newt Gingrich had an ultrasound, and it revealed a small horse inside his stomach. Jimmy as Mitt Romney attempts to reach younger voters with a video blog, however he proves he is out of touch with them instead.

Whenever his predecessor Jay Leno is a guest, Jimmy will feign an injury during the monologue in the form of allegedly pulling a muscle and Leno will have to "tag in" and take his spot for a few minutes while he recovers. In this conceit, Fallon sets up the premise that he had found an angry man ranting on the street and wants to give the man an opportunity to vent and get his complaints off his chest.

Three audience members are chosen to spin a wheel containing various carpet samples. The wheel includes a "mystery sample", which is revealed by the announcer to both the audience and the contestants prior to game play. Each contestant spins the wheel just once and is awarded a seemingly arbitrary point value Jimmy tells the second contestant that the point value the first contestant scored is the maximum number of points a contestant can possibly get, and then asks if the second player thinks he or she can beat it.

Each game contains the speed round with a "carpet sample fun fact": a piece of trivia, and the "lightning round" in which the contestant must "name as many things as possible" in three seconds after which Jimmy names a thing that is none of the things the contestant mentionedand a "carpet sample cartoon break", which is followed by a "the making of" featurette, then a "the making of the making of" featurette, then an epilogue of the makers of them.

When Jimmy gives the cue, the contestants must snap a picture with their cellphone of whatever item is on the screen. The contestant wins whatever item of which they have taken a picture.

One unlucky female contestant's phone was so slow to take a picture that all she photographed was the game's logo after the prizes had stopped flashing. As a consolation prize, she was awarded "donuts for the entire audience".

Two points are awarded for removing a hat, with one point each for the gloves; ties are broken based on audience applause. Losers receive a T-shirt. Jimmy closes the segment by reciting a rhyming verse, which in some instances of the sketch becomes absurdly long and about an embarrassing health problem Jimmy has such as genital warts.

The winner receives a hot dog toasterand the losers receive a package of hot dogs.

Winners receive a man boobs-themed wall calendar, and losers receive a "Man Boobs" T-shirt. Two pairs of audience members compete. One member of each pair rolls a specially marked die to determine whether they will be spitting or receiving. The spitter takes a sip of water, and then the receiver recites the punch line to a provided joke usually in the form of "[Normal phrase]? I thought you said [similar-sounding sexual phrase]! Audience applause determines the winning team.

Sometimes, Jimmy will have the spitter and receiver switch positions if their first spit-take is particularly good or they have extra time.

The winning team receives a pair of hand towels embroidered with the "Competitive Spit-Takes" logo, while the losing team receives a pair of moist towelettes.

Before the show, Jimmy selects members of the audience who are musicians but do not otherwise know each other.

They are split into two "instant bands" and are given about half an hour to come up with a band name, design an album cover, and write a song to perform. Winners are determined by audience applause. Prior to the show, a member of the audience Terry Patterson from the San Francisco area was selected and both bands had to write a song about her. Similar to Battle of the Instant Bands, Jimmy assembles two dance crews from the audience and has them each choreograph a dance routine in under an hour.

Two audience members are given a scene to perform with Jimmy in reverse walking backward, etc. After they complete the scene, the footage is then shown reversed so that it looks normal. The winner is determined by audience applause, who receives a piece of reversible clothing such as a jacket or a jerseywhile the loser receives a t-shirt with a reversed Late Night logo. Two teams of three male audience members race in a relay to pass a Spanx body-shaping undergarment over their bodies as fast as possible.

The third team member reverses direction once again and pulls the garment on feet-first. After pulling the garment over his head, the third team member then races to deposit the garment in a basket the "Spanx Bank".

The other team members may assist in the passing of the garment, but cannot bunch it up or fold it onto itself. Three audience members "try to decipher the garbled-mouth ramblings of Rickie Johnston, a pig farmer with a real anger-management problem," according to Jimmy.

The losers receive a bag of frozen tater totswith Jimmy giving Rickie a bag as well they're his favorite.

Three audience members are shown pictures of non-celebrities and each must guess the first and last name of the person shown. The images of non-famous men flashes quickly with one of a famous man second to last usually s sitcom stars.

The first two contestants get a single guy to name, but the last contestant plays the "lightning round", where they try to name eight guys in 20 seconds. The spirit of the game is similar to " Wheel of Carpet Samples ". Due to "lack of budget", the segment uses scene transition graphics from Home Improvement between contestants.

Actor Charlie Day played the game's lightning round on the July 11, episode. Jimmy claims this is "the game that everyone is talking about. Jimmy then brings in two male audience members who singularly select alternately a bucket held by each model similar to Deal or No Deal that is filled with an item such as food e. The losing contestant receives a Late Night bucket hat Jimmy and The Roots then begin a rap interlude about the bucket hat.

The initial installment of the game used 16 buckets instead of When only six buckets remain, the game enters the "double trouble" phase, where each contestant selects a bucket to be tipped simultaneously. Contestants also a receive new clean clothing backstage afterwards. Jimmy had audience members roll a twenty-sided die with a letter on each face likely taken from the game Scattergories and say as many words that start with that letter, with rules such as no proper nouns, no long pauses between words, etc.

While two audience members are blindfolded and wear noise-canceling headphones on stage, Jimmy selects another audience member to come down and photocopy their face; after doing so, that person returns to their seat. Singularly each of two contestants are given the photocopy and the task to run into the audience to find the photocopied person. While they are searching, the Roots play music whose tempo slows or fastens depending on how "hot" or "cold" the contestant is in their search.

Ties are broken by "kicking awesomeness" as voted on by the audience. Five audience members each donate one of their possessions to a communal "jackpot". Each of the five audience members has their name on a tile in a bucket. Jimmy singularly pulls a tile from the bucket to eliminate contestants until only one contestant is left, who wins everything in the jackpot.
