The Tonight Show: Starring Jimmy Fallon
This week, Steve Carell joined The Tonight Show's barbershop quartet, The Ragtime Gals, to perform "Sexual Healing," and President Obama took over the desk at The Colbert Report for an evening. The cast of Saturday Night Live performed a sketch about Ferguson that never made it to air, and Martin Freeman and Kate McKinnon geared up for SNL's final episode of 2014. Also, a family from Austin, Texas set their epic Christmas light display to "Let It Go." Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
It's difficult to find humor in the multitude of sexual assault allegations that have been lobbed at (slash resurfaced against)Bill Cosby this week, but Saturday Night Live managed to get a laugh out of it.
Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson and Jennifer Lawrence
Woody Harrelson handled hosting duties at Saturday Night Live this weekend, and he brought with him his Hunger Games co-stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth. And pot jokes. Lots of pot jokes.
Chris Rock made his return to Saturday Night Live this weekend to host for the first time since 1996, and in turn offered up some good laughs before ultimately settling in for a subpar episode.
Once again proving that Rock isn't afraid to tackle subjects most SNL hosts won't, the episode saw him take on the terrorist organization ISIS, but also gave him the space to perform his patented stand-up and maybe also dance to soul music.
Jimmy Fallon, Carol Burnett
This week, the Dancing with the Stars moment we've all been waiting for happened: Alfonso Ribeiro finally busted out The Carlton. Elsewhere, two kangaroos got into a fist(?)fight in the middle of an Australian street, and a German woman demonstrated her mind-blowing ability to sing multiple notes at once. Also, Jimmy Fallon and Carol Burnett unveiled their "lost soap opera," Tensions, and celebrities like Lena Dunham and Natasha Lyonne teamed up with Lil Jon to encourage young people to vote.

Saturday Night Live's current most senior performer may be heading for the exit.

And a baby makes three!
Saturday Night Live star Kenan Thompson and his wife, model Christina Evangeline, welcomed a baby girl on Friday, People reports.
James Franco, Zooey Deschanel, Seth Rogen, Taylor Swift
Seth Rogen returned to Saturday Night Live for his third hosting stint this weekend, and it was distinctly not a charm.
The episode started off promisingly, with Rogen's monologue featuring cameos from celebs — some surprising (Zooey Deschanel), some predictable (James Franco), and some who were there to support musical guest Ed Sheeran (Taylor Swift). But the rest of the night was a bit of a slog, save for a bizarre sketch featuring Franco as a monster who decides to get plastic surgery to appear human.
Taran Killam, Anna Kendrick
Anna Kendrick handled hosting duties at Saturday Night Live for the first time this weekend, in an episode that offered a few memorable moments among mostly mediocre sketches.
Highlights included the sure-to-go-viral music video "Dongs All Over the World," starring Kendrick, Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, Sasheer Zamata and Cecily Strong, as well as George R.R. Martin (Bobby Moynihan) stopping by "Weekend Update" to discuss the new Game of Thrones book he's working on.
Louis C.K. returned for his second shot at hosting of Saturday Night Live, and he once again used his opening monologue for some self-deprecating stand-up.
