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:
Jessica McKenna, Steve Carell
Fans of NBC's The Office may remember how Steve Carell's character, Michael Scott, was enamored by improv sketch comedy. He'd probably also be a fan of Fox's Riot, a new improv show from Carell's production company, Carousel Television. Based on a French format, Riot requires its seven featured players and guest stars to play in song, dance and sketch challenges — frequently on a set that has been titled at a 22-degree angle.
Steve Carell is returning to TV!
Riot,based on a wacky Australian series and executive-produced by The Office star, pits celebrities and comedians against each other in a series of competitions that have the teams sing, dance and create comedy sketches while overcoming multiple mental and physical obstacles. Rove McManus hosts while a rotating list of guest stars include David Arquette, Orlando Jones and others.

Talk about a backhanded compliment. Adam Sander has been named the most overpaid actor of 2013 by Forbes.
Though Sandler still commands a fat paycheck, most of his recent films have been Razzie fodder and box office duds. The magazine estimates that for every dollar Sandler received on his last three films, which include Jack & Jill and That's My Boy, the movies returned an average of $3.40. However, there are exceptions when Sandler's price tag pays off, as is the case with Grown Ups 2, one of Sandler's best performing films, which was not counted toward this year's ranking because of its later release date.
Paul Rudd, One Direction
Host Paul Rudd and musical act One Direction weren't the only special guests on Saturday Night Live this week. Alums Fred Armisen and Kristen Wiig returned to the show, and Rudd's Anchorman 2 castmates Will Ferrell (also an SNL vet), Steve Carell and David Koechner also made cameos to sing "Afternoon Delight" with One Direction during Rudd's opening monologue. The show also didn't miss the opportunity to skewer NBC's live Sound of Music musical, which aired Thursday. Check out some of the highlights below:
