Best of Late Night TV: 'Chelsea Lately's' Star-Studded Final Show, Idris Elba's Ice Bucket Challenge (Video)

27 August 2014 12:56 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.

Tuesday night was Chelsea Handler's star-studded farewell for her E! show, "Chelsea Lately." There were tons of A-list superstars on hand -- including Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock, 50 Cent, Fergie, Tim Gunn, Avril Lavigne, Alanis Morissette, Gwen Stefani, Gerard Butler, a dog, and more. The first video below shows Chelsea's A-list intervention, with friends Jennifer, Sandra, and Mary McCormack. In the second video, Chelsea has a hilarious naked shower fight with Ellen DeGeneres, who is mad because she's never been on Chelsea's show. Is it because she's a lesbian? In the third video, Gwen leads a sing-a-long throwing shade at E! (and the Kardashians, and Justin Bieber »

Experience of Hosting the Emmys Proves to Be a Mixed Bag

19 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Some years, who’s hosting the Emmy Awards proves more memorable than the winners themselves. Sometimes it’s because the hosts were great, but occasionally it’s because they felt flat.

“It takes a lot of talent to host, but it’s a lot of hard work. I’m still a little tired,” says three-time host Garry Shandling, who most recently hosted in 2004. “It’s a fantastical adventure to be hosting. It’s surreal, almost as if it’s animated because the clock is ticking and people are moving; yet you’re doing it live. There are no retakes.”

That is, unless you’re including pre-taped segments, which have become almost de rigueur of late.

Conan O’Brien — who hosted in 2002, 2006, and co-hosted in 2003 with Shandling and nine other comedians, including Ellen DeGeneres — calls a sequence of him running through every nominated show his favorite bit.

Emmy analysis: Jane Lynch makes us laugh, but Tim Gunn saves the day

11 August 2014 8:14 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Now that Gold Derby has exclusively uncovered all of the Emmy episode submissions in the Best Reality Host race, it's time to put on our Emmy judging hats and analyze their contents and surmise how voters may respond. First, a refresher: last year the duo of Heidi Klum/Tim Gunn ("Project Runway") proved too tempting for the TV academy to pass up, as they claimed victory on their first combined nomination. Previously, Klum submitted her name individually but was never able to win. Can they defend their title this year against the rest of the bunch that includes hosting newcomer Jane Lynch ("Hollywood Game Night")? -Break- What do you think about these Emmy submissions? Join the lively debate now in the Gold Derby message boards Let's start with Lynch's episode. Just like Howie Mandel ("Deal or No Deal") in 2008, Lynch is nominated for a game show instead of a reality program, »

America's Got Talent: Season Nine Ratings (Wednesdays)

7 August 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

This talent competition continues to be NBC's top rated summer series and it's already been renewed for a 10th season. Will the ratings continue to be strong enough to justify airing twice a week? Stay tuned.

Hosted by Nick Cannon, America's Got Talent is a nationwide talent show that features a variety of single and group performers. The winner takes home a cash prize and a chance to headline a Las Vegas show. Returning as judges are Melanie Brown, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, and Howard Stern. Episodes also air on Tuesdays.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the »

Best of Late Night TV: Megan Fox Plays Pictionary, Chloe Grace Moretz Talks 'If I Stay' Fans (Video)

7 August 2014 12:27 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.

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" star Megan Fox stopped by "The Tonight Show" and played some Pictionary with host Jimmy Fallon and fellow guests Nick Cannon and Wiz Khalifa (who performs the "Turtles" theme song). Partners Fox and Cannon got off to a rough start, missing their first two attempts at illustrating phrases, while Fallon and Khalifa seemed in sync -- until they got the item "Corn Dog." Fox and Cannon ultimately reigned supreme in the game, though Khalifa's Wtf-worthy attempt at drawing a dog was the real winner.

Cannon chatted with Fallon about his gig hosting "America's Got Talent," and discussed a prank he pulled on judges Howie Mandel, »

Emmys: Inside the Long, Strange History of the Reality Host Battle

30 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in the Aug. 8 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.  For better or worse, American audiences see the hosts of their favorite reality series as family. The unspoken (but oft-tweeted-about) bond that stirs viewers to bring the emcees who topline TV's biggest hits into their homes at night is so strong, it even weathered The Great Emmy Host Debacle of 2008. This was when, on TV's biggest night, the inaugural nominees in the Best Reality Host category -- Tom Bergeron, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, Jeff Probst and Ryan Seacrest -- were charged with co-hosting the

'America's Got Talent' Judges Pick Their Favorite Acts In First Live Show

29 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

The first 12 quarterfinalists performed on Tuesday night’s first live episode of America’s Got Talent, and judges Mel B, Howie Mandel and Howard Stern already have their number one picks, but are any of them winners?

Mel B was particularly taken with the Baila Conmigo dance troupe. This child and adult salsa group put on quite the show. Mel B was floored at the revelation that the youngest performers were 6 and 7 years old and congratulated them on their ability to keep up with the adults. The former Scary Spice also told the group that they were her favorite, and she implored the audience to vote to keep the group around, saying, “I’m so glad that you’re hear. I hope people vote for you, you are my favorite.”

Stern, the toughest judge of the night, was head-over-heels for singer Emily West, who performed Sia’s “Chandelier.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the one-off mockumentary, titled 7 Days in Hell, will find Samberg's character, Aaron Williams, squaring off with rival prodigy/"certified truck driver" Charles Lloyd Poole (Game of Thrones' Kit Harington) at Wimbledon 2004.

Andy Samberg And Kit Harington Enter HBO’s 7 Days In Hell

24 July 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you were worried that Andy Samberg is on his way to being the next Adam Sandler, have no fear! He’s also taking a shot at being the next Will Ferrell. At least, that’s what it sounds like he’s going for in HBO’s 7 Days In Hell, which will feature Samberg as a “bad boy” tennis player embroiled in a seven-day long tennis match at Wimbledon.

Samberg is both starring in and had a hand in creating the “professional tennis mockumentary” alongside Girls co-writer/producer Murray Miller. The one-off HBO “event” will also feature Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington as a tennis prodigy who faces off against Samberg’s bad boy player at Wimbledon. The story, while extreme, is based in reality: a real-life tennis match between John Isner and Nicholas Mahut went on for three days at Wimbledon, back in 2010. Not content with reality, Samberg and »

Andy Samberg and Kit Harington will star in HBO tennis mockumentary

24 July 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Looks like it’s Brooklyn vs. bastard on the court at Wimbledon. EW has confirmed that Andy Samberg (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) will play a pair of tennis rivals in a one-off HBO mockumentary about a seven-day match at Wimbledon. Titled 7 Days in Hell, the comedy will star Samberg as a superstar tennis “bad boy” Aaron Williams and Harington as Charles Lloyd Poole, a young prodigy.

The project is based on an idea by Samberg and Murray Miller, a writer and co-executive producer on Girls. Miller will write the script, with Jake Szymanski (Saturday Night Live) directing. »

Andy Samberg Joins Sports Mockumentary '7 Days in Hell'

24 July 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Andy Samberg and Kit Harington will lead the all-star ensemble cast of HBO's upcoming sports mockumentary 7 Days in Hell.

Written by Murray Miller, best known for his work on HBO's Girls, 7 Days in Hell follows the fierce competition between two tennis rivals as they compete in an epic 7 day match at Wimbledon.

The movie actually isn't too far fetched. To date, the longest tennis match record, held on Court 18 at Wimbledon, went for 11 hours over the course of three days as John Isner and Nicolas Mahut battled it out during the 2010 Championships.

Also appearing in 7 Days in Hell are Fred Armisen, Lena Dunham, Will Forte, Karen Gillan, Howie Mandel, Soledad O'Brien (playing herself), Michael Sheen, Mary Steenburgen and June Squibb.

Andy Samberg is playing tennis superstar and bad boy Aaron Williams, while Kit Harington will play tennis prodigy and certified truck driver Charles Poole. Karen Gillan is playing a super »

Andy Samberg, Kit Harington, Lena Dunham, and More to Lead HBO Sports Mockumentary 7 Days In Hell

24 July 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

HBO is putting together a sports mockumentary project, and the network has pulled together a rather promising comedic ensemble.  Girls writer/co-executive producer Murray Miller is teaming up with Andy Samberg to create 7 Days in Hell, which is described as a mockumentary send-up of professional tennis.  Per THR, the one-off HBO Comedy Event will star Samberg as a superstar tennis “bad boy” who becomes embroiled in a seven-day tennis match at Wimbeldon with an Andy Murray-type prodigy and certified truck driver, played by Game of Thrones star Kit Harington.  The current roster also includes Fred Armisen, Lena Dunham, Will Forte, Karen Gillan, Howie Mandel, Michael Sheen, Mary Steenburgen, June Squibb, and Soledad O’Brien, who will play herself. This sounds like the kind of delightfully goofy project that’s perfect for Samberg, and I’m very curious to see how Harington’s comedic skills stack up.  No word on when the project may air, »

'America's Got Talent' Recap: Next Stop...Radio City Music Hall!

23 July 2014 4:17 PM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

America's Got Talent judgement week is finally over. Next step: Radio City Music Hall -- at least for 48 talented singers, dancers, magicians, hand balancers and comedians. Did I miss any categories? 

It was a long and surprising night for viewers. Not nearly as long for us as it was for all the hopefuls sitting around the judgement auditorium waiting for Nick Cannon to call them to a lonely stage for their final shot at impressing four dour-faced judges. Okay, Heidi Klum, Howard Stern, Howie Mandel, and Mel B weren't complete sour pusses, but it was obvious they'd practiced their intimidating poker faces. For some, that made the experience down right petrifying and it showed in their performances. Ouch.  »

Comic Star Wendy Liebman Auditions on 'America's Got Talent'

23 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Wendy Liebman is my favorite standup comedian. She has been ever since I saw her first HBO special, and then her first Comedy Central special, and then her appearances on "Letterman" and "The Larry Sanders Show," and even her cameos as a star on the '90s "Hollywood Squares" with Whoopi Goldberg. She also had a Showtime special a couple years ago called "Taller on TV," and it's clear her style hasn't changed and shouldn't change: Liebman sticks to subliminal punchlines delivered with the wide smile of a kindergarten teacher. My favorite Liebman one-liner: "I'm going to my 30-year preschool reunion and I'm really nervous... because I've put on like a hundred pounds." Her style allows her to be both pithy and wicked, and she even won the American Comedy Award for Best Female Standup of 1997.  That's why it was so weird to see her audition for "America's Got Talent" last night. »

'Last Comic Standing' Recap: The Hardest Deliberation in the History of Deliberations

17 July 2014 2:06 PM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Are you guys ready for a little Howie Mandel? I sure am. Hopefully he'll offer up advice on how one can get a scalp to shine so brightly, but let's face it. He'll probably just focus on comedy. 

Host Jb Smoove doesn't waste any time introducing our remaining comics to their next challenge, called "Tram It All In." The challenge will focus on crowds, and thinking on your feet. Guess what our heroes will be doing? Oh yes. They'll be guiding lot tours around Universal Studios. 

Enter Howie, who makes Nikki Carr majorly excited. "It keeps getting better and better," she says with a smile. Howie has been on the scene for awhile, and says that he focuses primarily on improvising these days. Jb and Howie go over the map of Universal Studios, to help give the comics a heads up.  »

Vikings report on Chris Kluwe due shortly, in defense of Vicious, Tina Fey not making a Hocus Pocus sequel

Andrew Rannells talks to Playbill about stepping into the shoes of Hedwig after Neil Patrick Harris finishes his run, and why audiences respond so well to the show. “I think she wants what we all want. She wants to be loved and to find love. I think it’s kind of as simple as that. She compromises a lot in the name of finding love… The journey that she goes on, at least in broad strokes, is pretty universal. Anybody who is searching for something better for themselves can relate to what she goes through. She wanted something better. She wanted to get out of East Berlin. She wanted something more, and the cost of that was very high for her.” Rannells also notes what we all suspected but hadn’t seen confirmed in an interview, »
