The "Fierce Five" -- Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, Jordyn Wieber, Kyla Ross and Aly Raisman -- rang the New York Stock Exchange closing bell Tuesday and climbed up the Empire State Building to light the tower red, white and blue to commemorate their team USA wins.

The gals also helped Al Roker do the weather on NBC's "Today" show and sat down with David Letterman on CBS' "Late Show." During their Letterman interview, the gals talked about which sports they would play if they weren't already gymnasts. The team also talked about Maroney's "not impressed face," the pouty look she made on the Olympics medal stand.

Douglas, who became the first African-American gymnast to score gold in the all-around competition, started the busy week off with a visit to "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno."
