VIDEO: The Roots Cheat Their Way to Victory Against Jimmy Fallon and Alison Brie in a Special Tonight Show Edition of Family Feud
The Roots defeated Jimmy Fallon, Alison Brie and Steve Higgins in a Steve Harvey-hosted version of Family Feud on Friday night's episode of The Tonight Show
Cheaters never win – well, unless you’re The Roots that is.
The Roots’ team, which included band members Questlove, Tariq and James Poyser, took the immediate lead with question “What’s a nickname you might call your spouse?,” but only after Jimmy Fallon won points with “boo boo kitty.”
Fallon’s team – Sleeping with Other People‘s Alison Brie and Tonight Show announcer Steve Higgins – lost the first round, shortly after the Saturday Night Live alum tried to answer questions in the iconic Jeopardy format.
“Family Feud is the new number one game show in the country today,” Harvey asserted to Fallon, adding, “You ain’t the only one with a hot show.”

The Roots were ultimately victorious in the match up, but only after Tariq whispered an answer to teammate Poyser.
“There’s a lot of people in the band, why is his a– out here,” Harvey asked Questlove after catching Tariq in the act.
Regardless, the band swept the board.
