Just because: LeVar Burton and Jimmy Fallon sing 'Reading Rainbow'

No, this isn't paranormal but any kid that grew up with Reading Rainbow will dig watching LeVar Burton and Jimmy Fallon sing the theme. The duet is also timely since the show is kind of back now that it has been launched as a tablet app.

The erstwhile Geordi La Forge will also next be seen in the TNT show Perception about a paranoid schizophrenic who helps the FBI solve crimes. Burton will be the dean of the university the main character works. And for Fallon, this is the second time the Late Night host has sung the RR theme in a year - the first being when he appeared as Jim Morrison singing it with The Doors - so he is clearly a fan.
