This is great on soooo many levels!

On Tuesday evening, Amy Poehler stopped by Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show to catch up with her former Saturday Night Live costar and to talk about her new comedy, The House. However, the funny duo made some time to promote a good cause as they faced off in a trivia game, named Are You Smarter Than a Smart Girl?.

The new bit was inspired by the Parks And Recreation alum's AH-Mazing organization, Amy Poehler's Smart Girls. For the game, the comedienne and the late night host were each paired with a "smart girl" and were asked to answer different questions about math, U.S. history, geography, and grammar.

Unsurprisingly, it didn't take long for hilarity to ensue.

Be sure to ch-ch-check out the HIGHlarious face off for yourself (above)! Do YOU think you're smarter than a smart girl??

Don Rickles may be gone, but he definitely won't be forgotten.

In fact, the industry vet preserved his own legacy by filming a new TV just before his death. As we previously reported, the celebrated comedian passed away this week in his Los Angeles home from kidney failure. He was 90 years old.

But it appears as though Don will keep fans laughing long after his death as he filmed 10 episodes for his final TV show, titled Dinner With Don.

The series features the Casino actor grabbing dinner with some of Hollywood's brightest stars — including Jimmy Kimmel, Sarah Silverman, Amy Poehler, etc. While AARP Studios has yet to lock in a distributor or a premiere date, they seem eager to release the footage as they noted in a statement:

"All of us at AARP Studios are immensely saddened with the passing of Don Rickles. We had the distinct pleasure of recently working with Don on our upcoming series Dinner with Don. Don was known for his biting, acerbic humor and we feel lucky enough to have experienced that first-hand. He was also a thoughtful, kind and generous colleague and friend. Don continued to make audiences laugh throughout his life and career and his legacy will live on. We send our condolences to his family and longtime industry colleagues."

So sad. And, from the looks of the trailer, the show is destined to be a hit. Be sure to ch-ch-check out the trailer for Dinner With Don for yourself (below)!

We're still healing from the biggest upset in political history, with many shocked citizens unable to wrap their heads around just how Donald Trump managed to win the presidency.

And with so many like-minded people feeling confused and angry over Hillary Clinton's defeat, the Democratic nominee's biggest (fictional) supporter — Parks and Recreation's Leslie Knope — has imparted some wisdom on just what to do next.

In an open letter sent out to multiple sites, the optimistic politician played by Amy Poehler said she does not accept the idea Trump's views reflect the people of our country.

The Pawnee native wrote:

"I acknowledge that Donald Trump is the president. I understand, intellectually, that he won the election. But I do not accept that our country has descended into the hatred-swirled slop pile that he lives in. I reject out of hand the notion that we have thrown up our hands and succumbed to racism, xenophobia, misogyny, and crypto-fascism. I do not accept that. I reject that. I fight that. Today, and tomorrow, and every day until the next election, I reject and fight that story."

After comparing Trump to a "giant farting T. Rex" that was voted President of Pawnee Elementary School in a landslide election from her childhood, Leslie reminded citizens that just because a monster is elected president doesn't suddenly make him any less of a monster.
