Cobie Smulders chatted with David Letterman about the "How I Met Your Mother" finale on Monday night, while Mindy Kaling spoke with Kimmel about her "Vogue" shoot.

After weeks of sharing his car buying dilemmas with guests, Jimmy Fallon revealed on Monday's episode of The Tonight Show that he is ready to take the plunge.

"Today is the day that I begin my journey that will end with me owning a truck," he said in the dramatic announcement. "I am not talking about any truck. I am talking about the all new Ford F-150 King Ranch. New truck!

"Now I don't know where to get it so we're going to do a contest called 'Fingers on a 4x4,'" he said, explaining that he has invited car dealers from around the country who will compete for who can keep their fingers on a truck (which was dropped on the deck of the U.S.S. Intrepid) the longest.

Jimmy Kimmel also launched a contest of his own on Monday night. The notorious prankster asked his late-night viewers to get a head start on their April Fools' jokes and upload their footage to YouTube. He even offered a few ideas to help people get started: "Take all the breakfast cereal out of the box and replace it with golf balls ... replace all the money in their wallet with sliced ham, sign your grandma up for Tinder, sign your grandpa up for Grindr."

After introducing David Spade as his new member of staff, Kimmel invited Mindy Kaling onto his ABC show, where she joked about her recent Vogue magazine appearance. "I feel like more people bought it because of the controversy," she said, about the much-talked about issue. "It takes a lot of effort to look like a normal-sized, chubby woman."
