Jay Leno Gets Behind the Wheel for His Return to TV

1 hour ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jay Leno was driving through Coldwater Canyon recently when he spotted a guy with a classic L.A. problem: His brand-new BMW had a flat. He pulled over to help, which mostly consisted of convincing the owner that he did not, in fact, need to take the car to the dealer. “We changed the tire by the side of the road,” Leno says. “He thought doing that was the coolest thing.”It’s a few weeks before the premiere of his new CNBC car-talk, stunts, and auto-investments show, Jay Leno’s Garage, and we’re at the warehouse that’s home to the 65-year-old’s 140 automobiles and 117 motorcycles. “You can’t come back with the same thing,” the former Tonight Show host says, from behind the wheel of a red 1968 Lamborghini Espada, “and I figured I’d want to do a car show.” He eases alongside a yellow 1967 Lamborghini Miura. »

1 hour ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

What a welcome return! Jimmy Fallon delivered the opening monologue on NBC's The Tonight Show Tuesday before faking an injury and asking someone to take his place. Enter his predecessor, Jay Leno, who came prepared with endless material regarding the 2016 presidential race. "The election is getting nasty. See, this Ralph Nader called Hillary Clinton a 'corporatist' and a 'militarist.' Isn't that unbelievable? Ralph Nader is still alive," Leno joked. "And Hillary Clinton is not the only Democrat running. Martin O'Malley, the ex-governor of Maryland—do you know him? He's running for president. See, look! Nobody knows him. He's 2 percent in the polls—2 percent! He's »

Best of Late Night TV: Jay Leno Returns to 'Tonight,' Nina Dobrev's 'Pile High Club,' Lady Gaga's Favorite Shows

6 hours ago | 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.

This is pretty big news, considering the history of "The Tonight Show." Jimmy Fallon was doing his monologue Tuesday night, and after telling a joke about Bernie Sanders, he faked an injury and asked for someone to "tag in" for him. Enter ... Jay Leno! Jay infamously battled both David Letterman and Conan O'Brien for the "Tonight Show" desk, but at least he and Fallon are still apparently on good terms. Jay must miss telling jokes on network TV at 11:30, since that was his thing for so long.

Lady Gaga was on "The Tonight Show" Tuesday night, although she didn't do one of the fun games. (She should've done Wheel of Musical Impressions! »

Warning: The following contains spoilers from Tuesday’s iZombie Season 2 premiere.

No wonder iZombie executive producer Rob Thomas has been keeping mum about Major’s arc in Season 2!

At the close of the CW series’ sophomore opener on Tuesday night, Liv’s ex-fiancé was blackmailed by Max Rager into agreeing to kill off all of Seattle’s zombies. In return, Major’s pretty, undead ex stays unharmed. (Oh, and thanks to the cure’s side effects, Major can now sense when somebody is a zombie. Helpful!)

‘Sabado Gigante,’ the World’s Longest-Running TV Variety Show, Says Adios

18 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jon Stewart, David Letterman, Craig Ferguson and Jay Leno have all left their long-running late-night perches. And now Mario Kreutzberger (known by his stage name Don Francisco), the Chilean-born creator and host of Univision’s Saturday night extravaganza “Sabado Gigante” (“Giant Saturday”), is signing off for the last time on Sept. 19 when the show’s record-breaking 53-year reign as the longest-running TV show in the world comes to an end.

The variety format show, which launched in Chile in 1962 before expanding Stateside, features a frenetic mix of contests, sing-alongs, and music acts, as well as other live entertainment. Details of its three-hour finale (the show’s standard run-time) are still under wraps but it will include highlights of past shows and a constellation of guests, among them celebrated Latin American recording artists Enrique Iglesias, Luis Fonsi, Paulina Rubio and Juanes.

The 32 Greatest Talk-Show Hosts Ever, Ranked

8 September 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Out with David Letterman, Jon Stewart, Craig Ferguson, and Stephen Colbert. In with Trevor Noah, James Corden, Larry Wilmore, and Stephen Colbert. Lately, networks have been changing talk-show hosts faster than Zsa Zsa Gabor changed husbands. (That joke is our tribute to Johnny Carson.) The final piece falls into place tonight, when Colbert makes his CBS debut in Letterman’s old chair. After a long period of late-night firing, retiring, and hiring, it’s time to quantify the monologues and interviews, and crown the all-time kings (and a few queens) of talk. Our ranking includes some hosts who are entirely fictional, others who’ve expanded the job’s original boundaries through podcasting and satellite radio, and those who turned daytime TV into must-see entertainment. It does not, however, include John McEnroe, Magic Johnson, or Tony Danza; make no mistake, that was a conscious decision. 32. Jay Leno First he elbowed aside »
