Want the voice of one of the most annoying men in America to tell you even more annoying jokes? Now you can!
Jimmy Fallon unveiled a new partnership with Amazon on his Tonight Show on Monday. For the next month, if Echo users ask Alexa to “tell me a joke,” she’ll introduce her “friend Jimmy.”

Fallon is not the first celeb to collaborate with the mega-corporation behind a smart assistant. In February, Gordon Ramsay came to the Echo via an Alexa skill that allowed users to ask Ramsay what he thought of their cooking; naturally, he answered with an insult. In a much more enticing partnership, Google got John Legend to lend his voice to Google Home Assistant in May. The R&B revelation and husband of Chrissy Teigen can read Google Home Assistant users their weather or even deliver their wake up message.  Read more…More about Amazon, Jimmy Fallon, Alexa, Echo, and Dad Jokes

Mars is hard. Hard to get to, hard to make habitable for humans, hard to tell a story about on the screen and leave the viewer with any lasting impression. 
With a few shining exceptions — looking at you, The Martian — all Mars movies have bombed.

And the TV version hasn’t fared much better.

Witness Hulu’s new original series The First: ostensibly about the first Mars mission, it doesn’t even bother to make us care about the destination, focusing one entire season on sad Sean Penn and his earthbound struggles.  Read more…More about Mars, National Geographic, Entertainment, Space, and Movies Tv Shows
