On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon tonight, actor Charlie Day from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia was one of Fallon’s guests. He is one of the funniest characters on It’s Always Sunny, and has also acted in movies like Horrible Bosses and Horrible Bosses 2. Later in the episode, he played 5 Second Summaries with Fallon. Another of Jimmy Fallon’s guests was animal expert, Jeff Musial, who showcased some cool and exotic animals during the show. The musical guest this Monday was country star, Darius Rucker.

Jimmy Fallon began the Tonight Show with his comedy monologue. He cracked jokes about topics in today’s headlines, like the news that Donald Trump is “thinking seriously” about entering the 2016 Presidential campaign. He also joked about Mitt Romney considering entering the race, and about the Golden Globes and the reaction on John Legend’s wife’s face as he accepted an award.

Jimmy Fallon mentioned that a drone was used on the Red Carpet for the first time, and he said that he thought it was not safe. Then, a drone was shown coming down and knocking Matt Lauer to the ground.

Fallon joked about this “being the busiest time of the year for E-Dating services.” Two people in the audience blurted out comments about how they met each other through an E-Dating service. Jimmy Fallon said that they “had nothing at all in common.” They ended up sort of, kind of, getting a bit romantic, but not actually kissing each other.

In a clip that Jimmy Fallon set up, ESPN reporter, Hannah Storm, was about to go on air when she was getting a last-minute touch-up. She smacked her make-up artist out of the way, as she was about to go live.

Jimmy Fallon announced some of the upcoming guests, like Chris Hemsworth, and said later this month, they would be going on a road trip and will be doing the Tonight Show at various places, until they have a huge show on Super Bowl Sunday, starring guests like Will Ferrell. Fallon said Charlie Day will be on the show tonight, and animal expert, Jeff Musial, who he did not seem too thrilled to see, and Darius Rucker.

After that, Fallon did a comedy bit called “In Reply To.” He read answers to questions, then read what the questions were. It was like telling the punchline of a joke first, but it was a pretty funny bit. One reply was from Dunkin Donuts: “Try our new croissant donuts!” The question was “How do I fill the void now that she is gone?”

Jimmy Fallon introduced the first guest on the Tonight Show after a commercial break, animal expert, Jeff Musial. The first animal he showed Fallon was a Siberian lynx, Boomer. “They can bring down prey three times the size of them,” Musial said.

Then, Musial said “This one came all the way from Mexico,” and he told Fallon “Don’t move! Don’t move!” He placed tarantulas on Fallon’s head and it freaked Jimmy out.

The next animal Musial brought out was a red-tailed kangaroo. He cradled it in his arms. Jeff placed the kangaroo down and it hopped a little bit.

Finally, Jeff showed Jimmy Fallon a basket, and had hooks with him, and asked Fallon to play a flute. “You’re gonna tap the sides of the box, you gotta come in closer,” Musial told Fallon. Then, a fake snake sprang out, and scared the host of the Tonight Show.

After another commercial break, Fallon introduced his second guest, the actor and comedian, Charlie Day. The new season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia will premiere this Wednesday, on FX. “Charlie Day in the house! Is that right? Ten seasons?”

Charlie said he was uncomfortable about the “animal guy.” He said “I would have punched him.”

“You know, they’re even doing a version of your show in Moscow,” Jimmy Fallon said.

“Yeah,” Charlie said. “My character’s name translated to ‘Fatso.'”

They made the first episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Charlie said, “for just $100.”

Wade Boggs, the baseball player, apparently drank a lot of beer while he was on plane flights, according to Day. in the premiere, Charlie and the other cast members will attempt to break Wade Boggs’ record of drinking 107 beers. Boggs will make a guest appearance in the premiere and drink alongside him. Jimmy Fallon showed a clip of Charlie talking to his “hallucination,” of Wade Boggs.

Jimmy Fallon and Charlie Day played a new game called 5 Second Summaries. They will each look at cards, see the title of a movie, and try to summarize the plot of a movie without using the words in the title. Charlie tried Guardians of the Galaxy first, but Fallon did not know what the movie was based on the summary.

Fallon then tried Big Hero 6, but also failed to get Day to answer correctly. Day attempted Weekend at Bernie’s but Fallon did not get that, either. The Breakfast Club was one Fallon tried to get Charlie to get. Then, Charlie finally got Fallon to answer Austin Powers correctly, in just 1 second. Fallon said “Puppet liar,” but Charlie Day could not think of the movie — it was a great clue for the animated movie, Pinocchio. As Fallon was the only one to guess a movie correctly, he won the game.

Jimmy Fallon then introduced his musical guest of the night, country singer Darius Rucker. Rucker sang Homegrown Honey off of his latest album of the same name. The song sounded pretty cool, and the audience cheered and applauded after he finished singing. That was the end of this episode, except for when Fallon came back after one last commercial break and thanked his guests.

This Monday night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Fallon had some great guests on. Jeff Musial showed off some interesting and exotic wild animals, and actor Charlie Day talked about his TV series, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. He also played the game 5-Second Summaries with Fallon. Country star, Darius Rucker, closed out the show with one of his latest songs, Homegrown Honey.
