If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Jennifer Aniston was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Monday night to promote the new "Horrible Bosses" movie, but she also took some time for a "Friends" reunion with Lisa Kudrow via the foul-mouthed game, "Celebrity Curse Off." Lisa's face is great when she's cursing. So much intensity! It's kind of sweet that they both get upset about the b-word, considering what they're Ok with saying.
In her sit-down interview, Jen - who looked amazing - talked about the press tour for "Horrible Bosses 2," which sounds fun but also pretty tiring. She's afraid of flying, so she hasn't been to a lot of beautiful places in the world because she's too scared to fly. »

As the creator of TV series such as Battlestar Galactica, Quincy, Magnum Pi and The Fall Guy, the producer and writer Glen Larson, who has died aged 77, was one of the most astute makers of small-screen American dramas in the 1970s and 80s. He made TV gold from the most unlikely material, whether it be a show premised on a talking car (the 1982-86 drama Knight Rider, starring David Hasselhoff as a crime fighter aided by a Pontiac Trans Am with artificial intelligence), a culture-clash cop show featuring a sheriff from New Mexico transferred with his horse to crime-fighting in Manhattan (the 1970-77 series McCloud, starring Dennis Weaver) or the Mormon beliefs that he mobilised in the creation of the science-fiction series Battlestar Galactica (1978).
Larson also used the musical skills he had developed »

The iconic television writer, creator, and producer Glen A. Larson passed away Friday, November 14, at the age of 77.
Larson was perhaps best known for creating some of the most iconic TV shows of the 1970s and '80s including Alias Smith and Jones, McCloud, Buck Rogers In The 25th Century, B.J. And The Bear, Trauma Center, Quincy M.E., Manimal, The Fall Guy, and Magnum P.I..
However, two of Larson's most lasting creations are still cultural touchstones to this day. In 1982, Larson introduced Kitt, the artificially intelligent car, and David Hasselhoff's Michael Knight to American audiences with Knight Rider, and it quickly became one of the biggest TV hits of its day.

Four years prior, Larson created a show that would, much later, become a hugely celebrated franchise. In 1978, Larson brought the cult classic sci-fi series Battlestar Galactica to TVs across the country.

The television writer and producer Glen A. Larson, whose oeuvre includes hit television shows from Battlestar Galactica, Quincy M.E., Magnum, P.I., Knight Rider, and a number of others died Friday night in Los Angeles, California. He had been battling esophageal cancer. He was 77.Larson's first writing credit was for The Fugitive, and he later worked his way up the ladder, creating his first show, Alias Smith and Jones in 1971. He later made Battlestar Galactica, which lasted for just a season in 1978-79, because of high production costs. The show is best known now for its beloved rebirth in the mid aughts on Syfy. His biggest hits would come in the '80s with the mustachioed Tom Selleck in Magnum P.I. and Knight Rider starring David Hasselhoff. He earned three Emmy nominations for McCloud and Quincy, M.E. When Larson was younger, he was part of a vocal quartet called »

His son James told the Lat that Larson passed away of complications from esophageal cancer Friday night at UCLA Medical Center.
Larson had a string of TV hits in the 1970s and 80s, and dozens of writing and producing credits to his name. He created his first show, “Alias Smith and Jones,” in 1971, but left the ABC Western right after star Peter Duel committed suicide.
He created “Battlestar Galactica” a few years later. Although the series only lasted a single season (ABC cut the cord in 1979 after two dozen episodes partly because of its hefty production cost), it spawned a series of spinoffs. »

Glen A. Larson, the television writer-producer who created Battlestar Galactica, among many other hits series, died on Friday at the age of 77. Larson's son told The Hollywood Reporter that he died of esophageal cancer at UCLA Medical Center.
Larson's incredibly fruitful television career came after a stint in the 1950s pop group the Four Preps. After working as a story editor and producer on It Takes a Thief, he created his first show with the western Alias Smith and Jones, followed by The Six Million Dollar Man. In 1976, Larson introduced Quincy, »
Nicki Minaj rapped about shortbread. Ariana Grande let her hair down. Oh, and all of your favorite artists performed. We must be talking about the MTV Europe Music Awards, which celebrated its 20th anniversary Sunday with a Scottish-accented show in Glasgow. Grande capped a breakthrough year with two trophies at the EMAs. Grande was named best female artist and also took the best-single prize for "Problem," one of a string of hits she's had this year. The 21-year-old singer said she was doubly grateful to the EMAs - meeting Iggy Azalea at last year's awards show led directly to working »

Both Nicki and Ariana were big winners at the event, with Ariana nabbing the award for best song for "Problem" and Nicki winning a statue in the best hip-hop category.

Well that was a whirlwind of a red carpet! The 2014 MTV EMAs are in full swing but we're still stuck on the eye-catching fashion that dominated this year's red carpet. One noticeable trend? The tartan kilt, which was seen on both actor David Hasselhoff and rapper Redfoo—and probably worn in homage to the show's first return to Scotland since the 2003 ceremony in Edinburgh. Kilt's aside, the best looks of the MTV EMAs red carpet spoke more to classic dresses and clever silhouettes. Take British reality star Vicky Pattison, who caught our attention on the carpet in an iridescent, curve-hugging black gown. Pattison paired her look with a loose updo and smoky »

There's one every year ... a Halloween costume that feels just far enough over the line of good taste.

David Hasselhoff is to make an appearance in 'Ted 2'. The former 'Baywatch' star has already shot scenes for the eagerly-awaited sequel to the 2012 comedy movie, which is being written and directed by 'Family Guy' creator Seth MacFarlane. Speaking about his role in the movie, Hasselhoff told Digital Spy: ''It's a pretty funny bit that we're doing in the movie, and [Seth] is a lovely guy. ''I can't really talk about the gag, but it's very irreverent and very funny. He tore me up on the Comedy Central roast, and I get a chance to get back at him!'' The 62-year-old actor also spoke about his personal relationship with MacFarlane, saying: ''He's a good guy, we don't meet too many people in showbiz where they say, 'Hey buddy, I'll call you back, I've got something for you', and then you actually hear from them again. This guy's a stand-up guy. »
David Hasselhoff has teased his upcoming new sitcom on Dave.
The Baywatch star will play a fictionalised version of himself in the new comedy series Hoff the Record.
"It's a fun and wacky show," he told Digital Spy. "I want to say it's The Kumars meets Curb Your Enthusiasm.
"It's really funny and goofy, but also intelligent. It's a real send-up. [In the show] I have five wives and I find out my son was actually born on the Berlin Wall the night it came down. It's just non-stop jokes."
Hasselhoff revealed that he had a very similar idea for the show before a team of producers invited him to a meeting.
"The funny part about this, was that I was approached by Me & You Productions who did The Ricky Gervais Show, and they pitched this show to me, the exact show I had in my head, on paper!
"I said, 'Guys, I've already got this, »
Hasselhoff - who played Mitch Buchannon in the original series from 1989 to 2000 - revealed to Digital Spy that the update has yet to be written.
"The biggest update that I got from the horse's mouth is that the script hasn't been written yet," he said. "Who knows? I wouldn't been surprised if I opened up the papers tomorrow morning and it says Baywatch: The Movie."
The actor explained that he would have preferred to have continued the franchise himself, adding that he hopes it doesn't turn into a "spoof".
"They'll probably make it into a spoof, the same thing [happened] with Knight Rider," he continued.
"It's kind of sad, because I would like to have seen the franchises go on, »

“It’s a pretty funny bit that we’re doing in the movie, and [Seth] is a lovely guy,” Hasselhoff tells Digital Spy. “I can’t really talk about the gag, but it’s very irreverent and very funny. He tore me up on the Comedy Central roast, and I get a chance to get back at him! He’s a good guy, we don’t meet too many people in showbiz where they say, ‘Hey buddy, I’ll call you back, I’ve got something for you’, and then you actually hear from them again.

Joe Carnahan's Stretch reminds me a lot of Michael Mann's Collateral. The operating word there being "reminds" as in this is the B-movie, bat-sh*t crazy, balls-to-the-wall red-headed step child of Collateral. And I mean that in the nicest way possible. For anyone the least bit familiar with Carnahan's work, Stretch will come as no surprise. Carnahan could easily be described as a director interested in masculinity. He's a "tough guy" cinema director, making the movie equivalent to beef jerky. I like beef jerky and I like Carnahan's films. I like the outlandish nature of his movies, the "anything can happen" narratives, and he consistently brings actors along for the ride that are just as willing and excited about starring in something crazy. While his films such as Narc and The Grey show he can also delve competently into serious cinema, his movies such as Smokin' Aces and »

“Are you a firestarter?” That’s the deceptively flippant question repeatedly leveled at Patrick Wilson’s in-over-his-head limo driver by batshit billionaire client Roger Kairos (Chris Pine), who lands the poor guy – named Kevin and nicknamed Stretch – in a whole world of trouble over one crazy night during this wildly entertaining action farce (simply titled Stretch).
Although it takes a long while to figure out an answer, audiences should already know going in that there’s at least one firestarter involved in this production – director Joe Carnahan. Throughout his career, the helmer has delivered more than his fair share of stylish flicks winkingly infused with genre tropes and over-the-top, testosterone-fueled action. Whatever project he’s working on, Carnahan goes at it with equal parts intensity and intelligence. Consequently, he’s delivered an outstanding range of films, some which deal in hopped-up machismo fantasies (The A-Team) and others which work more »

To Live and Drive in La: Carnahan’s Trip into Hollyweird
In an unprecedented and surprisingly brusque move, Universal chose to dump Joe Carnahan’s latest film, Stretch into a sole VOD platform release, bypassing a theatrical run completely. While this signifies the studio’s lack of confidence in the title, it’s most likely a herald of things to come for filmmakers working within the system. The rule of thumb in the film industry used to be that you’re only as good as your last picture, but Carnahan received some of the best notices of his directorial career with 2012’s The Grey—it no longer seems to matter just how well your last picture performed. In defense of the eclectic director’s tastes, his latest is a bizarre romp through Tinseltown that never adheres to a particular mold, making it a rather tough sell but pleasantly offbeat feature, »
