ICYMI: Jimmy Fallon and Steve ‘Silver Fox’ Carell Play Some Blow Your Mind
Blow Your Mind is becoming quite a popular staple on The Tonight Show, and it's not hard to see why. It's just plain fun to watch grass or confetti getting blasted into a celebrity's face at super-high speeds -- especially when replayed in slow-motion.
Last night Jimmy Fallon had on Steve Carell, who's now the internet's favorite sexy grayhair. Carell strapped on the obligatory wig, 'stache and glasses, and sat in front of the cannon.

Seth Meyers took a look (but not "A Closer Look") at the latest news, starting with Senate Republicans pulling back their health care bill -- which would have repealed Obamacare and replaced it with what just about every single analyst has said is a system that would be far, far worse -- because they couldn't get a majority to support it.

But this time around, reporters may have to contend with a briefing room slowly filling with water and the presence of an electric eel. Come on, Spicey, you gotta televise that!
