Best of Late Night TV: Channing Tatum's Kid Theater, Jon Hamm Was Fired From Lizzy Caplan Pilot

24 June 2015 12:10 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.

What does "Magic Mike" mean to an 8-year-old? It's time to find out, in the most adorable way possible. Channing Tatum was on "The Tonight Show" and he and Jimmy Fallon re-enacted scenes from Chan's movie, "Magic Mike Xxl." The catch, though, was that the scenes were not from the male stripper movie, it was another round of Kid Theater, where kids were just given the name "Magic Mike" and asked to write scenes on the topic. Interestingly enough, even innocent magic references are loaded with "pumping" and "blow" sexual innuendo. Are these scenes ever really written by children or just childish adults?

Channing also shared a story from the "Magic Mike Xxl" set. »

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.

"I don't see anybody! I'm like my father at night looking for Fig Newtons. I'm just wandering around." Poor Conan.

This will make you Lol too. Aziz Ansari was on "The Tonight Show" to promote his book, "Modern Romance: An Investigation," and he and Jimmy Fallon chatted about embarrassing first text messages between guys and girls. »

14 June 2015 7:27 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

“It’s so huge. If you had told me a year ago that I could even dream in that sphere I would have been like ‘Really?’” admits “Jane the Virgin” series creator Jennie Snyder Urman during our recent webcam chat (watch below) when asked about the Emmy buzz building for her hit CW comedy series. “As a TV writer, I’ve watched the Emmys forever and it’s a really hard thing to go from watching it to imagining that anything you’ve created is in that conversation. And the fact that it [Emmy nominations] would blow my parents minds.” -Break- Watch more exclusive Emmy interviews with Viola Davis, Conan O'Brien, Ellie Kemper, Bob Odenkirk and more While Urman adapted a Venezuelan telenovela, she was determined to make “Jane” it’s own entity: “I always feel like with an adaptation if it’s done and its done well you wouldn’t want to just repeat it. »

13 June 2015 2:34 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Carrie Brownstein admits during our recent webcam chat (watch below) that she just can't pick a favorite from her two series ("Portlandia" and "Transparent"): “Both shows I’m so fond of, but they’re so different. So they allow me to explore different sides of myself; as a performer, as an actor. One is, of course, a little bit absurd but allows me to play different characters; that being ‘Portlandia'. Then with ‘Transparent’ it’s nice to kind of give myself over to someone else’s vision.” -Break- Watch more exclusive Emmy interviews with Viola Davis, Conan O'Brien, Ellie Kemper, Bob Odenkirk and more She says putting together the fifth season of “Portlandia” with Fred Armisen was, “very joyous and full of optimism.

Chris Pratt Has 3 Facial Expressions in Jurassic World, and They're All Equally Hot

12 June 2015 7:22 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Chris Pratt demonstrated his impressive acting skills during an appearance on Conan on Thursday. Chris, whose highly anticipated film Jurassic World opens in theaters today, showed host Conan O'Brien the different facial expressions he used in the movie. And since Jurassic World deals with a variety of emotions, from love to fear to happiness, Chris admitted that he really had to dig deep to get his looks right. Chris's appearance on Conan is just the latest stop on his busy promotional tour for the film. Earlier this week, Chris talked to Jimmy Kimmel about his nipple-tastic Entertainment Weekly cover, showed adorable Pda with his wife, Anna Faris, at the premiere, performed with Jimmy Buffett and the premiere's afterparty, and ran in high heels on The Late Late Show With James Corden. Watch the hilarious video above, then check out the hottest pictures of Chris from Jurassic World. »

Chris Pratt Demonstrates His Three Facial Expressions in Jurassic World: Fear, Love and Pure Joy—Watch the Video!

12 June 2015 6:32 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Chris Pratt's is a man of many talents, but he is not a man of many faces. While promoting Universal Pictures' Jurassic World on TBS' Conan Thursday night, host Conan O'Brien imagined it must be hard to star in the film, saying, "You must have really worked on your scared face." "The face that you give is really...You should do nothing. That's the key," the 35-year-old actor advised. "Because if they cut to a birthday cake, the audience should think, 'I think he's hungry for birthday cake.' Instead, they cut to a 60-foot dinosaur chasing me and they're like, 'I bet you he's scared right now.' The music helps and the edits and all that stuff. The »

Conan O'Brien on playing 'American idiot abroad' in visit to Cuba [Exclusive Video]'

12 June 2015 2:34 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"I take that as a compliment. The 'American idiot abroad' is an invention Mark Twain was doing in the 19th century. The American being out-of-place and out-of-sorts and being the butt of the joke is part of a long, rich American tradition of humor," says Conan O'Brien when talking to us about the special "Conan" episode filmed on location in Cuba earlier this year (watch our full conversation below). He adds, "When you send someone like me there, who is not afraid to look silly and the joke to be on me, it's actually a sweet message. It almost feels like a form of diplomacy." -Break- Watch dozens of video chats with 2015 Emmy contenders O'Brien earned raves for the episode which aired in early March during his regular TBS time slot. He and his producers got the idea after the U.S. government opened up restrictions on visiting Cuba. He reveals that after President. »

Check Out Conan's 'Fear the Walking Dead' Sneak Peek Spoof

10 June 2015 4:20 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

So by now you probably know that "Fear the Walking Dead," AMC's spinoff/companion series to "The Walking Dead," is set in Los Angeles at the start of the zombie apocalypse.

Check it out:

Yes, the whole season will be set on the 405! Hopefully the real show does not have many (or any) L.A. in-jokes since most of the world will be left out.

The real Ftwd stars Kim Dickens ("Gone Girl"), Cliff Curtis ("Missing," "Gang Related"), Frank Dillane ("Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince") and Alycia Debnam Carey ("Into the Storm"), and executive producer Robert Kirkman said it would premiere in August.

Help Wanted: Nick Offerman Needs You to Buy His Voice

4 June 2015 11:10 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Nick Offerman and Conan O'Brien have noticed that a lot of manly commercials have been using rip-Offerman voices to sell product. Clearly, this is not okay, so Offerman made his own product — a canister of his genuine voice — to fix this predicament, help sell every other product in the world, and even turn people into bikini-clad money-bathers. "Those men are frauds," he notes in this infomercial, "and someday they will burn for their crimes." There's something all the more terrifying about the wrath of a beardless-slash-stacheless Offerman. Sos. »

Best of Late Night TV: Melissa McCarthy's Picture Game, Ed Sheeran Sings Death Metal, Joel McHale on 'Community' Movie

2 June 2015 12:15 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.

The late night world was on repeats last week, but everyone (except "Late Show," alas) is back this week. Melissa McCarthy was on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and they played "Random Picture Word Association." They took turns looking at random pictures and yelled out the first words that came to mind. Jimmy gave his "Ew!" to mayo. He also had the best response to the hot dog photo. Here's Ed Sheeran on "The Tonight Show," giving his trademark soothing sound to dark heavy metal songs and hardcore rap. It's pretty funny -- and an album like that would probably sell well. Jeremy Piven was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live »
