Sutton Foster, Stephen Colbert Star in Realistic Cats Musical — Watch Video

28 September 2016 5:49 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This new version of Cats is bound to cause a purr.

Younger‘s Sutton Foster joined Stephen Colbert on Tuesday’s Late Show in a new adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic Broadway musical — now with songs more in tune with the life of the common house pet. It’s, without a doubt, the most ridiculous thing you’ll watch today, but it’s hard not to appreciate Foster’s commitment to the material, especially as her character becomes distracted by a curtain cord, or when she prances across the stage singing about a certain “gift” left for her owner. »

James Corden Turns Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad and Stranger Things Into Inappropriate Musicals

21 September 2016 6:05 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Who knew Game of Thrones could turn into such a cheery musical? James Corden, Alan Cummings and Jesse Tyler Ferguson teamed up on The Late Late Show Tuesday to turn Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad and Stranger Things into inappropriate musicals, but the results are kind of cheery (albeit slightly dirty). "A wildling could surprise you and become a friend / winter is coming / winter is coming / winter is coming / all over you," the trio sang. Although the lyrics contained sexual innuendos, the attention remained on Ferguson, who was going to be beheaded. After a rockin' guitar solo (on a sword) from Corden, he did the deed and killed Ferguson. This is Game of Thrones, after all. The actor-singers »
