Anthony David Miles, Tom Shillue, Jimmy Fallon, Chris Tartaro
This week, Jimmy Fallon made his debut as host of The Tonight Show, and welcomed a host of celebrity guests — the most entertaining of which was Kristen Wiig, who did her entire interview in character as One Direction's Harry Styles. With NBC devoting its prime time programming to Olympics coverage, Parks and Recreation launched its online spin-off The Hapley Group, and Parenthood's companion web series incorporated the show's long-awaited crossover with Friday Night Lights. Also bowing this week were Marlon Wayans' new comedy channel, and Chipotle's original web series Farmed and Dangerous. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
NBC is staging a Parenthood-Friday Night Lights crossover as part of an upcoming digital series, the network announced on Monday.
As a way to keep viewers engaged while their shows are off the air for the Olympics, NBC.com, Hulu and YouTube will all stream original four-part digital series of Chicago Fire, Parks and Recreation, Grimm and Parenthood.

The long-awaited Goonies reunion on Nickelodeon's animated hit Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles finally takes place this week. Corey Feldman's first episode as the voice of a recurring character is set to premiere Saturday, Nov. 30, at 11 a.m. (ET). Feldman plays opposite his old Goonies co-star Sean Astin in the series.

Mae Whitman, Matt Lauria
Parenthood's Matt Lauria admits that he had a hunch early on that Mae Whitman was his (TV) soulmate.
"Mae and I both, within the first couple of episodes, thought that we had really landed on something special," Lauria tells TVGuide.com. "So we both put our whole hearts into it."
Thankfully, this was no instance of puppy love. In the final moments of last Thursday's season premiere of the heartwarming family drama, Ryan returned home from military duty and...
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
TV's heroes in a half-shell are set to return to Nickelodeon next month. The current incarnation of animated hit Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles kicks off its second season on Saturday, Oct. 12 at 11 a.m./10c.
In the first episode, "The Mutation Situation," the Turtles find out that alien Kraang has dropped mutagen canisters all over New York. Throughout Season 2, the heroes will have to recover those canisters before more mutants are created. Meanwhile, Kraang and Shredder have joined forces to stop the Turtles.
Joining the cast this season is Josh Peck (Drake & Josh), who voices teenage hockey player Casey Jones, a rebel who enjoys taking on the bad guys. TMNT also stars Sean Astin (as Raphael), Rob Paulsen (Donatello), Greg Cipes (Michelangelo), Jason Biggs (Leonardo), Mae Whitman (April O'Neil), Hoon Lee (Master Splinter) and Kevin Michael Richardson (Shredder). Corey Feldman recurs as Slash.
What a difference a year makes. Last September, Parenthood faced a shortened 15-episode season after three years of high critical praise but lukewarm ratings. But thanks in no small part to Kristina's heartbreaking battle with breast cancer, the tearjerker family drama transformed from bubble show to buzz show. Now the NBC series returns for a full 22-episode season on a brand new night, Thursdays at 10/9c.
"Moving us to Thursdays was a vote of confidence from...
