Don’t say Jimmy Fallon doesn’t listen to his viewers — nearly four million of them.
“The Tonight Show” host aired a special segment on Thursday where he read out suggestions from the Audience Suggestion Box and responded to the most interesting ones on air.
“Hey Jimmy, have you heard of these things called ‘Trump Lists?’ Where you do your best Donald Trump impression and list off four random words,” wrote one helpful fan. “It’s really fun.”
The king of random impressions had no trouble with this challenge, and rapidly started firing off Trumpisms, starting with: “Rhombus, cooties, eucalyptus, didgeridoo.”
The next suggestion from a viewer was that the DVD version of “Magic Mike XXL” has an option to change the background music. “You should give it a go,” he wrote.
Fallon claimed they got an early version of the DVD and switched the theme to polka, playing a lively ditty that went surprisingly well with Channing Tatum and co.’s sexy gyrations and raunchy stripper moves in the hit sequel.
Another curious inquiry came from a viewer who asked can “turtles can talk? You should find out.”
Fallon then brought out a guest in a hard shell, who turned out to be the quietest creature ever to appear on the show; however, it looked suspiciously more like a tortoise than a turtle, which may be why it called the late-night host an “ass.”
Earlier on Thursday, NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt announced that Fallon has extended his contract with the network through September 2021.
“Jimmy Fallon is simply the best that there is, the most versatile star of a show anywhere in television in my opinion,” Greenblatt said. “‘The Tonight Show’ has always been an institution, but he’s remade it into a destination for the largest audience anywhere in late night. He’s the face of NBC in a lot of ways and we’re thrilled he’s going to be hosting ‘The Tonight Show’ for many years to come.”
“The Tonight Show” airs at 11.35 p.m. on NBC.
