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:
Kristen Wiig on Jimmy Fallon: Leave it to Jimmy Fallon's former Saturday Night Live co-star Kristen Wiig to pull some shenanigans during his first week hosting The Tonight Show. Similar to the interview she did as Michael Jordan on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last July, Wiig dresses up as One Direction member Harry Styles for her first interview on Fallon'sTonight Show — and completes the entire interview as Styles. (Her British accent and karaoke skills need a little work.)
Jimmy Fallon's barbershop quartet: Another highlight from Fallon's first week was his barbershop quartet, The Ragtime Gals, doing its own rendition of R. Kelly's "Ignition (Remix)." Check it out here:
