Comment: Why is Seth McFarlane all over the place?  Please God, no new movie I beg you. Blake Shelton on Fallon? I bet they don’t discuss his divorce. I was going between Rod Stewart on Fallon and John Oliver on Meredith Viera and I am going with John because the man is a pretty good stand up comedian and that makes him a natural talk show guest.
