You can always expect shenanigans when Taraji P. Henson shows up on a late-night talk show. And on Tuesday night’s episode of The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, host Fallon got a little more than he bargained for.

Henson and Fallon played a “fast” version of Family Feud, but unlike the television version, it was no-holds-barred.  


“Name something in your house you hide when guests come over” was the first direction Fallon and Henson were given.

“The drugs!” Henson yelled, though she made sure people realized she was referring to her Empire character, Cookie.

After a couple of rounds, with Henson clearly in the lead, the funniest direction popped up. Henson and Fallon had to complete a phrase that ended in “balls.”

“Big balls!” Henson yelled.

“Basketballs!” Henson yelled again.

Neither response showed up. Then Fallon yelled, "Blue balls,” and the crowd went into hysterics.
