we have some good stuff planned for you tonight. kevin nealon, michael b. jordan, the b does not stand for basketball. the band karmin will be outside. and the incredible todd rundgren will be outside. and todd rundgren, he has a new album and a new shirt, also, it seems like. well, thank you for coming. it is great to have you here. you know, there is some big news in the world of daytime television today. this morning, elizabeth hasselbeck announced effectively she is leaving "the view." she signed with the houston rockets. actually, she is leaving to join the show "fox and friends." on fox news. she talked about her exit, maybe in contrast to the talk that the hosts don't get along. she shared an emotional good-bye with barbara and the rest of the gang. >> i think the person to sit in
this chair, i will not be the last person to sit in this chair, the past ten years have been nothing. [ laughter ] >> and so we'll be right back of course, with hot topics. >> jimmy: you know what? maybe it wasn't emotional but she did say good-bye to the women on the view. she has been there for ten years now, she was a contestant on survivor, and abc hired her from that. she ate a grub bug. and america fell in love. she has been on thousands of shows, and tonight we look at some of her finest moments as we say good-bye to our colleague and our tv friend, liz. >> i asked you a question. >> you asked me a question. >> you wouldn't even answer your own question. >> wait, wait, wait. >> we're talking about two different things. >> no, no, no, no, no, no, no. >> this is a criminal -- >> be treated -- >> i'm trying to get to the bottom --
>> who need a home, that is a complete bigoted statement to say that -- it is bigoted, no, no. >> thank you. >> jimmy: well, you know -- [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: the good news is, on fox news, nobody will disagree with her at all. not only did elizabeth leave "the view," joe behar is leaving, if you want to watch women fighting, you are stuck with the real housewives. and hollywood boulevard is teaming for visitors to have fun. this game is called "you catch it, you keep it." guillermo is on the roof. hello, guillermo. >> hi, jimmy. >> jimmy: what are you wearing,
a parachute? >> no, it is a harness. a parachute -- here is how the game works, if they catch the item he drops they get to keep it. that is how we got the name. all right, let's go down to my cousin, sal, who is positioned on hollywood boulevard. [ cheers and applause ] >> i have this one right here. >> jimmy: hello, what is your name? >> my name is april. >> from farmersville, california, in between bakersville and fresno. >> jimmy: oh, that is the best part of the state. are you ready to catch a fabulous prize? >> i am. let's go. >> jimmy: all right, put the helmet on, guillermo is four stories up. hi, guillermo. >> i'm very high. oh, yeah, i see that >> jimmy: now, are you ready? do you have an item? >> i'm ready, i'll get it.
>> jimmy: okay, and are we ready on the ground? >> i am. >> jimmy: all right, let's play "you catch it, you keep it." [ cheers and applause ] all right, guillermo, you're not -- you're not the one that gets it. you're supposed to -- when did we get that? like an hour ago? all right, so that is -- what flavor is that, guillermo? >> chocolate, vanilla, and that is it. >> jimmy: all right, it looks pink to me, are you sure? >> oh, and strawberry. >> jimmy: and strawberry, you forget the strawberry, huh? >> yeah. >> jimmy: all right, let's make sure the contestant can hear what she is about to catch or attempt to catch. are you ready, guillermo?
>> yes, jimmy. guillermo okay, are you ready down on the ground? and release the fries. there you go, it is a good toss. we are going to have to mark that an error. ìáhp &hc& thank you. >> jimmy: all right -- >> hold on, the sprinkles are coming. >> jimmy: no, the sprinkles are not coming, well, it was a nice try but you didn't catch it. we'll come back to you in a minute. >> all right, very good. cousin sal and guillermo are throwing ice cream on the people. you know we have writers on the show. justin bieber is doing weird things again. tmz shows him in the kitchen of a restaurant in new york peeing into a mop bucket, like a janitor's -- well, here it is. all right -- so -- that is justin talking. and there he is, peeing, too. when you're justin bieber, the world is your toilet. by the way, what i like about this video his pants are exactly the same as they are pulled down or pulled up. there is no difference.
by the way, the weirdest part of the video is this guy right there standing on the stairs. watching him. either a very diligent bodyguard or a very obvious pervert, i'm not sure. all right, keep going. >> you're not going to remember him -- >> what are we? >> we are [ bleep ]. >> jimmy: you know what? canada? it is time to pick him up. we have had enough. [ cheers and applause ] i don't know if it is just justin bieber or our own little king joffrey we have to deal with here. all right, let's go outside to have our next contestant. play another round of "you catch
it, you keep it." >> he is very excited, this guy. >> jimmy: what is your name? >> jonathan. >> jimmy: where are you from? >> clarksville, tennessee. >> jimmy: all right, and what do you do there? >> i'm a walmart associate, sir. >> jimmy: okay, have you played any baseball? >> no, sir. >> jimmy: you have not? all right, well, strap on the face mask, we want to make sure you're protected and we're going to go back up on the roof. guillermo? >> yes, jimmy. >> jimmy: now what is that? >> it is a beach ball. >> jimmy: why is it flat? >> oh, because it has money. it has a 100 dollars inside. >> jimmy: oh, but why is it flat? >> oh, i don't know. >> jimmy: okay, blow that thing up a little bit, will you? >> oh, blow it? >> jimmy: yeah, you know how they do. no worse ball for the beach than one of these, ironically, all right, okay, we were going to fill it with quarters but it killed somebody at rehearsal today.
okay, are you ready down on the ground? >> yes, sir, we're ready, yes, sir. >> jimmy: all right, jonathan, are you ready? >> yes, sir. >> jimmy: all right, here we go, two, three, one and drop it. wow, that came down quickly. that is a shame. let's look at the instant replay here, oh, wow. all right, well, we're still looking for a winner. thank you, jonathan. here is a weird story, this guy, a scientist, eugene mccarthy, he is not a kook. one of the world's leading scientists, he said he believes that the human species was probably created when pigs mated with chimps. and that is how we got jersey shore. [ cheers and applause ] i know, we've seen intense similarities in the dna of
chimps and pigs and humans. and in his opinion, there is a good chance, a probability that adam and eve may have been a pig and a chimp. it turns out george was even more curious than we thought. and inter-species can mate, a lion and a tiger mate, it is called a liger, and a pig and a chimp would make pimps, i guess. it makes you think of all the accomplishments from humanity, the pyramids, the moon landings, tevo, all of that may have happened because one night a pig and a chimp got a little drunk and went for it. scientists say they believe this union would have paired a male boar, which if you can imagine that, and the offspring would have been raised by the chimp mother, if you can imagine that. today he held a conference to explain it in laymen's terms as best as he could. >> the male direction of the
cross was likely with the female chimp. >> can you explain in detail the actually hiberization event? >> of course this is pure speculation, i think it is likely that the male pig was like, i have been watching you for sometime and i think you are something with your hairy thumb. and the chimp was like, i love the way you run around in your own feces. that really turns me on. >> i want you so bad. >> but what do we tell our families? >> they don't need to know. this is so wrong but so right. where are you going? you're going to miss where the baby pig comes out. >> jimmy: turns out men really are pigs, there is scientific evidence. we'll be right back, we'll have more drops off the roof. but kevin nealon, michael b. jordan, and music from karmin on

like that, and i said are these guys going to write new songs? he said we don't encourage it. todd, am i right? >> are you ever wrong? >> jimmy: when you started out, were you confident? were you nervous? >> well, you know, you're always nervous at first. then you become confident. i was so confident i remember once bringing a heckler to my own show. what happened, i worked in dallas, my roommate calls and says can she come to your show? so i drive by, pick her up, she was very nice, i drove her to the club. she goes in, the opening act is going on, she is drinking and drinking and drinking, by the time i get on she is totally hammered. and she is heckling me. just a drunk heckler, you know, distracting everybody. and then i get off the stage, and i'm in the lobby talking to a friend. and the manager comes in and says you got to take your friend out, she is passed out on the table. so i had to like pick her up and
carry her own my shoulder. i didn't even know her, she was heckling me all night. i had to put her in the car, drive her back to the car, bring her into the house and put her on the couch. and i was going to leave, and i thought what if she throws up and drowns in her puke? you know? so i had to sit there until her roommate came home and just watch her. the person who heckled me and ruined my whole night. you know? >> jimmy: the heart of a comedian, the heart of gold. >> you're absolutely correct, jimmy. that is a heart of gold. >> jimmy: kevin nealon has a dvd -- looks like a cd to me. >> it is actually an lp. yeah, we had to cut it down a little bit. >> jimmy: there it is, it is called "whelmed, but not overly." you can see kevin at the funny bone in virginia beach, virginia. july 12th. thanks to you, and we'll be right back with michael b. jordan. not the basketball player, he is a different guy. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ ♪

michael b. jordan. >> jimmy: of course, there has to be a michael c. jordan. >> i can't do that to him, no. >> jimmy: eventually it will fade, well, with him, maybe it won't fade. do you ever go into a foot locker and say i would like a pair of "air me". >> that is really bad, i am actually going to a dominican republic for a friend of mine's wedding. and i was flying standby at the time. and the lady at the kiosk, she couldn't speak english really well, and she was like michael jordan, is that your father? yes, it is my dad. she actually bought me first class both ways. so i was like, nice. [ cheers and applause ] i felt bad, i did, i did, i felt bad for about two seconds until i sat down in that first class seat. >> jimmy: and you felt a lot better.
and when you were a kid you were acting, how old were you when you started acting? >> about 12 years old. >> jimmy: you did a show with bill cosby, not the cosby show, but in brooklyn, cosby was in queens. who did you play on the show? >> this kid named michael jordan. >> jimmy: you have been preparing for it your whole life. >> my whole life. >> it was like a small role, i had maybe four or five lines. i had a kid in the classroom, and he was giving every student something to do. like one kid was making paper planes, one chewing gum. mine was like, he said, you know what, michael, i want you to brush your hair through the entire episode. even if you're saying your lines, i wanted to get waves, i keep brushing my head, get waves, keep going to school. be cool, all right, i can do that. so we taped two segments, one in the morning, one in the afternoon.
so all during rehearsal, i'm brushing my hair, brushing my hair, not realizing by the first segment my scalp was going to be completely raw. i mean, literally, it was so sore. so i stopped brushing my hair half way during the first segment, and i remember during the break he said i asked you to do something, michael. i said i know. he said what did i ask you to do? i said brush my hair, he was like what didn't you do? i stopped brushing my hair, so literally, i was brushing my hair furiously -- during the second segment. i didn't care if there was blood running down, i was going to -- >> jimmy: if you had just rubbed jello on it, it would have been fine. you guys missed an opportunity. this movie of yours is great, apparently, i have not seen it. but you won the grand jury award at sun dance, wow! >> yeah, man, it is -- [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: not just the regular jury, the grand jury. >> i got both of them. >> jimmy: and sometimes you could get an oscar nomination out of something like that. >> that has happened before.
you trying to jinx me on tv? >> jimmy: no, but i tell you what, if you do, if you should happen to win you should just stroll out there brushing your hair the whole time. or brush oscar's bald head. it is a serious movie. it is a real story. >> yeah, it is about this kid named oscar grant. he was fatally murdered in oakland by the bart transit police, face down, shot in the back. they caught it on the cell phone footage. and it hit the internet and youtube and kind of blew up from there. and the cop actually -- he was sentenced to two years for involuntary manslaughter, only ended up serving a month, it -- so i actually played oscar grant. the -- it took place the last part of his life.
little bit of humanity back, because when a person loses his life, by an officer, he gets polarized. i think it is unfair for a person to get judged for a small part of his life. so we really wanted to give a little humanity back. so that is kind of what happened. it affected a lot of people. >> jimmy: well, congratulations, thank you, michael b. jordan. we'll be right back.
