-Thank you for being my first guest in the year 2022. Thank you. I'm honored. I'm honored. -Thank you. Thank you. It's going to be a good year. -You know it. It's going to be -- Yeah. Do you typically make any New Year's resolution? -To be a better person than what I was last year. -How is that possible with you? -It's possible. I fall short sometimes. Yeah, I fall short. -Do you really? -It's like "Oh, I'm going to eat healthier. I'm going to do this. I'm going to lose weight." No, I never stuck to that stuff. -No. -No. I figure if I just say I'll be a better person, a better father, better friend, better son, better whatever, I can stick to that. -I like that. That's awesome. -Yeah. -I do. [ Cheers and applause ] Happy to come back. I love when you're here. Obviously, the audience, we love you too, but I want to talk to you about this, because you went to Dubai recently. -I did. -Now, how did you end up there, and what's going on in Dubai? -Steve Harvey is a very good friend of mine. -Love Steve. -And he had his celebrity golf tournament there, you know, for his various charities. And so he invited us over, so we all went over there, man. And it was a great time. It was me, Yvonne Orji from "Insecure." Ahmad Rashad. -Yes. -Akon. [ Cheers and applause ] Yeah, right? -Akon plays golf? -Akon, yeah. Well, well! [ Laughter ] I'm not going to say that. And I got an issue with this. Akon has never played golf before in his life, right? [ Laughter ] Never played golf before in his life. -Yeah. -But won the tournament. -That's my man. [ Cheers and applause ] -No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. -That's my man. -No, no, no. Alright, so, he came -- his team came in first. Steve Harvey's team came in second. My team didn't even place at all. [ Laughter ] But this is it. Akon was playing ahead of me. And Steve and his team were playing behind me. So I got to see how horrible both these teams were. -Yeah. -And they both -- One took first place, one took second -- third place. And I didn't place at all. -It's rigged. -Yeah, very much so. I'm not going to say it was rigged, but it was rigged. [ Laughter ] -What is Dubai like? I've seen pictures. What is Dubai? -Dubai is unlike any other city that I've been in, man. They say it's the city of the future. When I was there a few weeks ago, it was -- they're having the World Expo there, which is the first time it's been held in a Muslim country, which was beautiful. [ Cheers and applause ] It's still going on. And it was also World Day. It was their birthday. Dubai's only 50. I'm 51. I'm older than Dubai. -Wow! That's interesting. -I'm older than Dubai. -But you're back in New York for a little bit? -I'm back in New York for a little bit. A lot of bit. -I'm excited about this. -So am I, man. -You're doing "Law & Order" again. -Back to "Law & Order." Detective Kevin Bernard. [ Cheers and applause ] -Come on, bud! -Yeah. -Dude, this is big. -Yeah, yeah. -How does it feel to come back? -It feels great, man. I'm back in a well-worn saddle that just grips your ass. -There you go. That's exactly the way to put it. Yeah. -Yeah. -It's fun to have you back on NBC. This is going to be fun, bud. -Yeah, good to be back. -And New York. -Yeah. -We got to hang out, figure out something. How's Mom doing, first and foremost, 'cause you know I love your mother. -Mom is doing great. -Doris. -Yeah, Mama Doris is doing great. She's single now, thanks to our last appearance on your show. -No. [ Laughter ] -Yeah. -No, because of that? -Those who remember, it don't work! -No, he didn't like it? -He didn't. He never called my mama after that night. [ Laughter ] Hey, man, why you laughing?! [ Laughter ] He never called -- My mom was so excited. She was like, "Baby, baby. Look, me and Anthony had fun with your -- at your expense on 'Fallon' tonight, but watch the show." To this day he hasn't called my mama back, Fallon. -Ah! -So this what you got to do. When I bring my mama to New York, we got to set my mama up on a new date. -Oh, of course. Doris, easy. -Alright. You hear that, Mama? -Easy-peasy. And, Doris, we don't need him anyway 'cause it didn't work. -Stop, man! Stop! [ Laughter ] But it don't work! [ Laughter ] -I heard your mom is doing -- I heard your mom is doing something with Eddie Murphy. -She is, man. We both are, but my mom is in Eddie Murphy's new movie with Jonah Hill and a bunch of other people. [ Cheers and applause ] Yeah. You know, everybody always, "Does your mom get star-struck?" I was like, "Yeah and no. She plays it cool." She was in a scene with Eddie and one of the A.D.s says, "Ah! I think we have to do it again." And out of nowhere, my mama said, "[Bleep] I hope we don't." [ Laughter ] And Eddie Murphy turned to him and was like, "Was that Anthony Anderson's mama?" He was like, "Yeah." He said, "Man, she is funny!" [ Laughter ] -I love it. Hey, Mom, we're setting you up when you come back to New York. -Hopefully with somebody who works. [ Laughter ] -Yeah. When we come back, I want to talk about the final season of "Black-ish" and also about having Michelle Obama on your show. More with Anthony Anderson when we come back. Come on back, everybody.
