Tonight's episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon will feature the "season finale" of one of the show's best sketches, The Real Housewives of Late Night. Last night, Fallon aired a "Bonus Footage" precursor to tonight's big event. Watch inside.
When Fallon's show debuted over eight months ago, we were a bit dubious—after all, taking over for Conan O'Brien is akin to stepping into the world's largest shoes—but the host's steady improvement since March has won us over. One of the main reasons for Fallon's success, we believe, is the fact that he's made up for his shortcomings (e.g. weak and, sometimes, awkward monologues) with some great sketch comedy. And when it comes to Fallon's sketches, The Real Housewives of Late Night takes the cake.
For those unfamiliar with the sketch's premise, here's the gist of it: Fallon, announcer Steve Higgins, head writer A.D. Miles, writer Bashir Salahuddin and Roots bassist Owen Biddle dress in drag and play fictional versions of their wives, in a parody of the series of Bravo shows that bear the same name. Last night's sketch—dubbed "Bonus Footage"—was hosted by Bravo's resident attention whore, Andy Cohen, and featured a hodgepodge of hilarious (and unseen) bits from previous "episodes." Watch below.
