Below, check out quotables from NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon February 4 - 8:
Welcome to Late Night With Jimmy Fallon! Here's what people are talking about. Of course the Super Bowl was last night and it was one of the highest rated Super Bowls ever, with 108 million people watching. Plus I read that this year's game added 430 million dollars to the New Orleans economy. None of which was apparently used to pay the electric bill.
Oh man, this was pretty big deal. Last night the lights in the Superdome went out for 33 minutes at the beginning of the third quarter. Yeah, the 49ers were just standing around on the field, not knowing what to do - and then the blackout happened.
Yeah, the lights went out in the third quarter. Which is weird cuz normally, I don't experience a blackout til after a Super Bowl party.
I heard that Budweiser's ad starring a Clydesdale was the most popular Super Bowl commercial last night, while another popular commercial was the ad for Taco Bell. So either way, it was a big night for horses.
Actually, viewers thought the worst commercial of the Super Bowl was the GoDaddy ad where supermodel Bar Rafaeli made out with a nerd. Or as the nerd put it, "Yeah, so what?"
This isn't good. RadioShack is planning to close more than 500 stores by the end of the year. While its remaining stores will just continue to look like they're closed.
Did you see this? On Saturday, Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow. And you know what that means - nothing, because that's not how weather works.
Check this out. A new survey found that 17 percent of men in the Marines would leave if women moved into combat positions. The other 83 percent of Marines said, "Wait - we can just LEAVE???" (That's an option?)
Get this. A new study found that having sex should not take the place of actual exercise. Especially at the gym.
And finally, today, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said he wants to be the first person that his country sends into space. So finally, Iran and the U.S. agree on something.
Welcome to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon! Here's what people are talking about. The White House is warning North Korea that it will face significant consequences if it moves forward with a new round of nuclear tests. Not only that - it's also warning South Korea that it will face serious consequences if Psy makes another ad for pistachios.
Here's some political news. Mitt Romney's son, Tagg, is denying reports that he'll run for Senate this year, saying the timing isn't right. You know, just like when his dad tries to clap along to a song.
Here's some international news. Pakistan is opening an amusement park and a zoo in the same town where the raid on Osama Bin Laden took place. The zoo is pretty cool, but I've heard you won't be able to see the SEALs until it's too late.
And finally, to prevent a monopoly, the Department of Justice is trying to block Anheuser-Busch from buying Corona. So they did what everyone else does-got their older brother to buy it for them.
Welcome to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon! Here's what people are talking about. Today, the Postal Service announced that it will stop delivering mail on Saturdays in an effort to save two billion dollars a year. Postal workers were shocked -they were like, "We were supposed to deliver mail on Saturdays??"
Have you heard about this? PETA is criticizing Beyoncé for the leather costume she wore during the Super Bowl halftime show. Or as the ball that got thrown and kicked for three solid hours put it, "Yeah - that's the leather you should be worried about."
Yeah, PETA is mad at Beyoncé for her leather costume. But even cows were like, "Oh come on, she looked awesome!"
This isn't good. It was just revealed that the Federal Reserve was hacked on Sunday. It's pretty serious - in fact, they say the hackers could've made off with as much as negative 14 trillion dollars. (There's nothing in there!)
I read that CBS is hoping to avoid wardrobe malfunctions at The Grammys on Sunday by warning celebrities to wear appropriate clothes. And by telling Lady Gaga that the show is next Sunday.
Check this out. After thousands of people voted on Facebook, Monopoly is replacing its iron game piece with a cat. And if that surprises you, remember - these are the people who had enough free time to vote on a new Monopoly game piece.
Here's a crazy story. This week, a construction worker in Boston survived a 30-foot fall after he landed in a pile of bubble wrap. It took a few hours to get him out, mainly because he was like, "Wait. One more."
And finally, I heard that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un recently got a smart phone. And you can tell it's a smart phone, cuz today, it left North Korea.
Welcome to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon! It's gonna be a fun show tonight! Here's what people are talking about. The Northeast is bracing for a snow storm this weekend; but some forecasts say it will only be two inches, while other forecasts are predicting 30 inches. When asked why they couldn't make a better prediction, meteorologists were like, "Uh, we're meteorologists."
Actually, they're saying New York could receive up to twelve inches of snow this weekend. Or as Subway calls it: eleven inches.
I'm so excited. We have Joel McHale on the show tonight! And we also have Al Roker! Roker was gonna be the first guest, but I heard he likes going number two.
That's right, Al Roker is here! It was weird though - backstage he asked me where the bathrooms are, and before I could finish, he was like, "Nevermind."
Some political news. I heard that supporters of Hillary Clinton have already started a 2016 Super PAC on her behalf called "Ready for Hillary." And more cautious Democratic supporters have started another Super PAC called "Bracing for Biden."
You guys, this weekend is the Chinese New Year, which will celebrate the Year of the Snake. Crazy that it's 'Snake' already. I'm still writing 'Dragon' on all my checks.
Check this out. Last night, runners from around the world competed in the annual race to the top of the Empire State Building. But there's already a Scandal brewing - it turns out one of the competitors tested positive for elevator.
Here's some local news. After passing a ban on large sugary sodas, Mayor Bloomberg is considering a ban on Styrofoam cups. Seriously? At this point I'm starting to think 7-11 slept with his girlfriend.
And finally, former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown is in talks to become a contributor on FOX News. First they have to check his background and test his knowledge of current events- and if he fails, he'll start Monday.
Everyone's talking about this big winter storm that could dump three feet of snow on the East Coast and knock out power to 24 million people. And to put things in perspective, that's about six Beyonce half-time shows.
Yeah, this storm is really a big deal. In fact, I heard that The Weather Channel is expecting totals of 12 to 20 viewers.
Here's some entertainment news. It was just announced that a third Night at the Museum movie is coming out. You can tell they're running out of ideas, because it's called, "Night at the Museum 3: Maybe Go To The Museum During The Day?"
Did you hear about this? Idaho Congressman Raul Labrador has fired his spokesman for tweeting quote "Me likey Broke Girls" from his official account during the Super Bowl. Man, this is the worst thing to happen to Raul Labrador since his parents named him Raul Labrador.
Get this. A man in Florida was arrested for drunk driving on a motorized shopping cart at a Wal-Mart. It wasn't good - in fact, I heard he led Cops on a chase that reached 90 aisles-per-hour.
And finally, Snoop Dogg, now known as Snoop Lion, just released the music video for his song, "Here Comes the King." The video tells the story of a controversial king in a war-torn country. Eh just kidding, it's about smoking weed.
