Joe Manganiello Shows Off Amazing Six-Pack On 'Magic Mike Xxl' Set

10 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Joe's upper body is an amazing sight to see.

You go, Joe!

Just two weeks ago, Joe Manganiello posted a picture of himself working out in preparation for his role in Magic Mike Xxl.

News: Joe Manganiello Teaches Conan O'Brien How To Strip 

Now clearly, his hard work is paying off as his body is ripped in this new photo from the set of the film in Savannah, Georgia today. Does this mean we’re going to see a lot of Manganiello shirtless in the movie? Sofia Vergara, you are one lucky lady!

Just yesterday, Channing Tatum was spotted filming and showing off his buff muscles too. Channing and Joe were reportedly soaking wet and giving a show to the ladies on set.

Conan Makes Samsung Spoof Ad After Unbox Therapy’s iPhone 6 Bend Test

26 September 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have only been out for a few weeks, but complaints are already coming in about the device bending in people’s front pockets. Unbox Therapy (Lewis Hilsenteger) decided to stress test his iPhone 6 Plus “for the sake of science” in a new video. On September 23, the tech expert, who has over one million subscribers on YouTube, uploaded a video showing him forcefully bending his iPhone 6 with his own hands. While Hilsenteger notes how malleable aluminum is and how much of it is on the larger iPhone 6 Plus, he does say he started to notice a bend himself from typical use after only a few days. To date, his video’s received over 35 million views. Springboarding off the success of Unbox Therapy’s video, the witty Conan O’Brien discussed the iPhone6 uproar using a spoof ad “released” by Samsung. In it, Samsung (aka Team Coco) sympathizes with Apple customers, »

You Need to See Bill Hader's Amazing Impressions of His Saturday Night Live Co-Stars

26 September 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Bill Hader is one of Saturday Night Live's best impressionists...ever. The Skeleton Twins star proved that episode after episode and reminded us again on Conan. While on Conan O'Brien's talk show, Hader busted out his impressions. First, he did Fred Armisen's impression of him, and then he did his impression of Armisen. Next up: Hader's Skeleton Twins co-star Kristen Wiig, who is apparently always cold and asking if people are "going to that thing." Hader's Jason Sudeikis always chews gum...even while giving a eulogy. Doing voices runs in his family. "My wife said that when she ate dinner with my family for the first time that we all just do voices," he said. "We're not »

Best of Late Night TV: Chris Pratt's Amazing Headshot Story, Jerry Seinfeld's Unique Bucket List (Video)

25 September 2014 11:55 PM, 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.

Chris Pratt was on "The Tonight Show" Thursday night, confessing to Jimmy Fallon that he would steal "Saturday Night Live" sketches and re-perform them in high school. Jimmy showed off Chris's first headshot, with all that moppy hair, from when he was 20 years old and just moved to L.A. to become an actor. The story of how he got the photo taken is amazing, though. You have to listen to it. Chris and Jimmy also played "Word Sneak," trying to work two odd words into casual conversation. They were pretty good!

Jerry Seinfeld was on "Late Show With David Letterman" -- he did some standup, talked about »

Saturday Night Live's Nasim Pedrad Recalls Meeting Kim Kardashian, Reveals Unaired Impression of Aziz Ansari—Watch Now!

16 September 2014 7:49 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Let's be honest: Nasim Pedrad did a really good impression of Kim Kardashian. And for five seasons, fans couldn't stop LOLing when the Saturday Night Live veteran channeled the E! star's fashion, laugh and voice in several sketches. On Monday's Conan, the comedian finally shared with fans what it was like to meet the reality star she spent so much time poking fun at. "She was really sweet," Pedrad told Conan O'Brien without any hesitation. "She was in pristine, airbrushed makeup, perfect hair. I, that day, looked like a person who woke up in a dumpster." The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star managed to ask if her family "really sound like »

Best of Late Night TV: Barbra Streisand Duets, Ike Barinholtz's Obama Impression, Jane Fonda's Breasts (Video)

16 September 2014 12:35 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.

Music legend Barbra Streisand made her triumphant return to late night television with her first appearance on "The Tonight Show" in more than 50 years. Streisand was promoting her new album of duets, "Partners," and host Jimmy Fallon stood in for several of said partners to help Babs perform a medley. Fallon impersonated Elvis, Blake Shelton, and Michael Buble, while Streisand remained her fabulous self.

Later, Streisand sat down with Fallon (who let her sit behind the desk in honor of her milestone appearance), where she critiqued his musical abilities. "Do you really want to be a singer?" Babs asked, a note of incredulity in her voice. "I wouldn't quit your night job. »

Highlights from The Simpsons Take The Bowl

15 September 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There's no point of reviewing Sunday (September 14) night's The Simpsons Take The Bowl show from The Hollywood Bowl, at least not in a traditional way. Sunday's presentation was the third and final night for The Simpsons Take The Bowl and, alas, if you didn't catch one of the shows... That's it. Sorry. Timed to loosely synchronize with the classic comedy's 25th anniversary, the show's recent syndicated move to Fxx and Sunday, September 28 premiere for the new season, The Simpsons Take The Bowl was a terrific two hours of live music, singing and dancing, culminating in fireworks. The event featured an assortment of new animation tailored around the venue, but also included classic "Simpsons" bits including Homer's plummet down the Springfield Gorge, Homer's gambol through The Land of Chocolate and the transition from the Ajax Steel Mill into The Anvil. I'm not sure that all of my favorite "Simpsons" musical moments were acknowledged. »

In even more depressing news that I'm getting old, "The Simpsons" turns 25 this year - and to mark the occasion, Matt Groening and friends have been entertaining their asses off at L.A.'s iconic Hollywood Bowl all weekend.

"Weird" Al Yankovic performs "The Ballad of Homer and Marge" Oh my god, he's famous again. Yeardley Smith and Nancy Cartwright perform "Minimum Wage Nanny" Still the definitive Mary Poppins parody.

Watch Conan O’Brien Perform the Simpsons Monorail Song

13 September 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Simpsons took to the stage of the Hollywood Bowl last night to kick off a three-day series of tributes and performances in anticipation of its 26th season. Conan O'Brien got onstage to perform a classic scene from a classic episode, the monorail song (voiced by the late great Phil Hartman) from "Marge v. the Monorail." Conan's an appropriate choice considering he wrote the episode. Also in attendance was Weird Al, who performed a parody of "Jack and Diane" as "Homer and Marge." Watch the clips below, and sorry for the nosebleed seats. »

11 September 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For a show entering its 26th season, "The Simpsons" has been generating a lot of fresh news lately.  There was last month's Fxx Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, in which all 552 episodes and the movie were aired in sequence, single-handedly transforming Fxx from a cable curiosity into a destination.  For lucky residents of Los Angeles, there's this weekend's The Simpsons Take The Bowl three night event.

Best of Late Night TV: Jimmie Johnson's Cooler Race, Nick Offerman's College Advice, Lying Fashionistas (Video)

11 September 2014 1:47 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.

"Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon opened up his suggestion box to find a query from a fan asking him to challenge someone to a race using a beer cooler scooter -- literally, a motorized scooter built from a cooler. Fallon brought in Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson for the bit, and offered him a beer helmet for protection, though Johnson was eager to get the race over with. "I just can't wait to ... see what's inside the cooler," he told Fallon.

Another suggestion box question from a college freshman sought advice for school, which Fallon said he didn't feel qualified giving. Instead, he called upon "Parks and Recreation" star Nick Offerman, »

Best of Late Night TV: Mel Brooks Dons Drag for Joan Rivers's 'Late Show,' Jason Segel and Steve Harvey Play 'Family Feud' (Video)

9 September 2014 12:51 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.

Mel Brooks stopped by "Conan" to reminisce about his dearly departed friend Joan Rivers, who the comedian praised as "sharp, very brilliant, and very funny." Brooks said part of Rivers's brilliance was her willingness to make jokes about dark or unfamiliar subject matter with a fearlessness that was inspiring. Host Conan O'Brien then cued up a clip from when the comedian guest-hosted Rivers's "Late Show" in 1986, and Brooks took a unique approach to the job: donning one of Rivers's dresses, and doing the show in full drag, complete with wig, jewelry, makeup, nail polish, and heels. It's a great gag, and a fun way to remember just how eventful »

Who Is James Corden? 5 Things to Know About Craig Ferguson's Late Late Show Replacement

8 September 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

James Corden is your new Late Late Show host. The Into the Woods actor will take over hosting duties from Craig Ferguson on the CBS late night series. Ferguson, who has been hosting the series since 2005, announced his exit in April 2014, just days after it was announced that Stephen Colbert would take over The Late Show when David Letterman retires. At the time of his announcement, Ferguson stressed it wasn't a Conan O'Brien-Jay Leno or Letterman-Leno situation that previously transpired as late night shows changed hands. "I'll be stepping down at the end of this year in December," Ferguson said. "Then I'll go and do something else, probably. I'm thinking carpentry, but I haven't »

Letterman, Kimmel, More Toast Joan Rivers on Late Night

5 September 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's refreshing to watch network late night stars toast Joan Rivers. It feels like a slap in the face to Johnny Carson too, which I love. Though Joan Rivers died Thursday at the age of 81, it's clear her foul-mouthed irreverence will remain appreciated for eternity. Here's the best of late night's respect to Joan.  Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman roast each other in honor of Joan's raspy rancor. (For added viewing, enjoy Silverman's "In Bed with Joan" episode. So great.)   Conan O'Brien fondly remembers Joan's "Tonight Show" appearances while his guest Chris Hardwick recalls how sweet and bad-ass she was.     David Letterman calls Joan "indefatigable" and Paul Shaffer breathlessly recounts how she helped out his daughter with a project.   Finally, Seth Meyers' tribute is touching and quaint. So unlike Joan, but still great. »

Jimmy Fallon, Sarah Silverman, Jimmy Kimmel, David Letterman and Conan O'Brien Honor Joan Rivers

5 September 2014 4:20 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Joan Rivers is getting the last laugh, per usual. When she was a fledgling comic, Johnny Carson told Tonight Show viewers she was "going to be a big star" after she performed her stand-up routine on Feb. 17, 1965. At Bill Cosby's insistence, Carson had agreed to take a chance on Rivers, who would later guest host the late-night show from 1983 to 1986. When Rivers left to host Fox's Late Night, she called up Carson, who reportedly hung up on her. She was subsequently banned from The Tonight Show, a decision respected by Carson's first two successors, Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien. Rivers did not appear on The Tonight Show again until Feb. 17, 2014, when the comediene made a cameo in Jimmy »
