Ricky Gervais Plays 'Word Sneak' With Jimmy Fallon (Video)

The pair slipped "gerbil" and "breadsticks" into conversation, as Nick Offerman later described "22 Jump Street" to Seth Meyers as "action, summer, comedy, penis, big."

What do gerbils, breadsticks and mullets have in common?

They were all words featured in Jimmy Fallon's latest game, "Word Sneak," which he played with Ricky Gervais on Monday's The Tonight Show episode

The aim was to fit the words seamlessly into conversation, which prompted some very strange references to Richard Gere and Duck Dynasty.

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have produced some of the last two year's biggest hits -- such as "Thrift Shop," "Same Love" and "Can’t Hold Us" -- but could an everyday person pick Lewis out of the crowd?

The DJ/producer took to the streets to ask just that. Wearing glasses and with hair slicked back, Lewis polled several New Yorkers about their familiarity (or lack thereof) with the lesser-known half of the duo. Let’s just say the majority preferred Macklemore, who even made a surprise appearance at the end of the Tonight Show segment, with one fan giving Lewis a "C+" in attractiveness.

Over on ABC, Jimmy Kimmel played a game called "Don't Talk Into the Mic," where fans failed to win $10 simply by keeping their mouths shut. First guest Dr. Phil then marveled at why Jimmy would want another baby after having two grown up children already. "I am very fertile," claimed the host.

His next guest, ESPN's Sage Steele, admitted that having children was a professional help rather than hindrance for her as a female sports reporter. "Once I got knocked up [by her husband] the athletes wanted nothing to do with me!" she said of having three children in four years while covering the Baltimore Ravens.

As for her current duties as host of NBA Countdown with analysts Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose. "I get these guys who are really smart and love what they are doing. The key is to making it really conversational."

Seth Meyers did a joint interview with Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman on Late Night, where they dished on past and future projects.

"I have never been a performer who people hired because I look good," said 22 Jump Street co-star Offerman, who went to claim that he'd been given some key buzz words to describe the Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill cop comedy. "Action, summer, comedy, penis, big."

Meanwhile, Mullally had some big news for Broadway fans, "I am coming back to do a play on Broadway called It's Only a Play, with Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick," she announced.

Donald Trump joined David Letterman on CBS, where he talked about who else but Donald Sterling. "I do know him…he's turned out to be not so hot. What a total disaster," he said.
