Denis Leary gets the band back together for FX’s Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll

30 June 2015 11:44 AM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

Remember when a rock band’s fame was measured in record sales and radio plays instead of Twitter followers and trending hashtags? Someone might as well stick us in a museum with a pole up our butts because we, like Johnny Rock, are fossils. Comedian and former Rescue Me star Denis Leary returns to FX in the new comedy Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll as Johnny Rock, the drugged-out, aging frontman of early ’90s flash-in-the-pan punk band The Heathens. For nearly 25 years, he’s been living all of the rock star lifestyle with none of the fame or fortune. John Corbett costars as Flash, The … Continue reading →

Last Week On Late Night, 6/12/15: John Oliver on torture, Seinfeld on political correctness, and Chris Pratt on our minds

15 June 2015 4:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Real comedy still happens on late night, we can prove it. If you like Conan comedy gold, Fallon friendliness, cutesy Corden, list-making Letterman, kneedy Kimmel, and all the rest, I hope you’ll enjoy this column too.

Since Dave retired and the Summer weekly talk-show break eased into Summer talk-show down time, mostly occupied by a few blockbusters, it has been better to write these posts weekly. That way, we can show only the best bits, and cut out most of the filler.

Anyway, last week on late night, John Oliver talks torture, Jurassic World cast did the late night rounds, Kimmel is in full swing with the ABC’s NBA Finals, Jerry Seinfeld stopped by Late Night, and all Late Show with David Letterman clips have vanished from the Internet…for now.

Denis Leary, Molly Shannon Slay 'Nonsense Karaoke' on 'Fallon'

10 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Denis Leary and Molly Shannon set new standards of quality for The Tonight Show's "Nonsense Karaoke" bit, singing Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar on Me" and TLC's "Waterfalls" with as much passion as the originals — even though their famed choruses now began, "Ask your sister for peas" and "Don't throw Jason's Barbie dolls."

Shannon kicked off the bit with "Waterfalls," dropping some slinking dance moves, adding a bratty sneer to a line about how it's "time to legalize the burgers of lunch" and — in place of TLC's pre-chorus "Listen to me… »

Best of Late Night TV: 'Nonsense Karaoke,' Chris Pratt Talks Indiana Jones, Betty White's Prank Call

10 June 2015 12:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

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.

Denis Leary and Molly Shannon were on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and they performed some "Nonsense Karaoke." The lyrics are so good. This may end up the next Spike TV show after "Lip Sync Battle"!

Denis dressed like a rock star for his new show "Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll." He said, his first day on set, he took a photo with a woman in his rock star gear and she told him she was so excited to pose with her favorite "Glee" star. Yep, she thought he was Jane Lynch!

Now you must watch "Jimmy Kimmel Live" guests Chris Pratt and Abby Elliott playing "Name That Famous Celebrity. »

Denis Leary, Molly Shannon, and Jimmy Fallon Mangle Song Lyrics in Nonsense Karaoke

9 June 2015 11:36 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jimmy Fallon could not have selected better guests to help him butcher classic songs: Molly Shannon channels her innermost Superstar, which is still damn super, and Denis Leary transforms into something otherworldly. Watch as the trifecta terrorizes lyrics by swapping them with phrases like, "Bake me waffles in Snooki's barn!" (deal) and "Baby, we found bugs in Pee-wee's car" (yikes). »

Watch: Denis Leary Does 'Radiohead to Morrissey' in 'Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll' Trailer

5 June 2015 8:54 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Watch: Denis Leary is a Wiseass Rock Star in 'Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll' Teasers The washed-up ex-lead of a '90s-era nearly-successful band shows his daughter Gigi (Elizabeth Gillies) his funny, impromptu reproduction of Radiohead and Morrissey in this trailer for the new FX comedy series "Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll." The show tells the story of this lead singer — aptly named "Johnny Rock" (Denis Leary) — of a fictional band called The Heathens which is, some 25 years later, attempting to make a historic comeback.  Complications naturally arise due to Johnny's outrageous ego (and his daughter's talent eclipsing his own) as he struggles to fulfill his dream of being a rockstar. The series will premiere on FX on July 16. Read More: Summer TV Preview 2015: 15 New Shows You Need to Know About »

Denis Leary’s FX ‘Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll’ Previews

4 June 2015 6:06 PM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Do you miss “Rescue Me?” We do.And also missed are Denis Leary’s staccato whip-smart cracks, made effortless by a Massachusetts kid who was warned to stay off the goofballs by the great Red Sox player, Carl “Yaz” Yazstremski, who toured the Boston’s North Shore in his heyday warning pre-teens about drugs (Yaz came to my school too in the eary 70s). That kind of fertile background just seems to make the jokes fly a little faster and harder.
