Saying Farewell to Stephen Colbert, Craig Ferguson, and David Letterman's Christmas Show

19 December 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

We must not be treating our late-night talk show hosts very well. To lose both Stephen Colbert (or at least the "Stephen Colbert" he plays on "The Colbert Report") and "The Late Late Show"'s Craig Ferguson is a misfortune, but to lose them both within 24 hours smacks of negligence.

There's a lot of mourning, hand-wringing, rending of garments, and gnashing of teeth to be done, what with Colbert's departure on Thursday, December 18, and Ferguson's the next night. To add insult to injury, Friday the 19th also marks David Letterman's last Christmas show, highlighted by Darlene Love belting out "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)," a tradition that dates back to 1986 on Dave's old NBC series.

It feels like the end of an era, and not just because these long-time hosts are all quitting their shows (though Letterman will still be on for another five months), but also for what »

Stephen Colbert's Final Colbert Report Guest Is The Grim Reaper—Is He Killing His Character's Persona?

17 December 2014 10:26 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Fans of The Colbert Report know it will soon be time to say goodbye to Stephen Colbert—well, the right-wing persona he's inhabited on the show, that is. Colbert, the real person, has confirmed he won't be in character when he replaces David Letterman as host of CBS' Late Show in September. But what does that mean for the Colbert caricature we've known all these years? Based on the fact that The Grim Reaper (otherwise known as Grimmy, "Stephen's colleague and lifelong friend")  is booked as the final Colbert Report guest for Thursday's finale, his fellow comedians and fans alike are speculating on whether he might actually kill off his character! Conan O'Brien, who has »

'The Simpsons' Turns 25: Watch 80-Minute Talk With Conan O'Brien & The Show's Writing Team

17 December 2014 7:05 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Twenty-five years ago today, the world got its first, crudely animated taste of "The Simpsons" with the holiday episode, "Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire." The show introduced us to the dysfunctional Springfield family, but no one could've guessed that twenty-six seasons and 561 episodes later the program would not only still be on the air but would be known the world over as a television institution that at the the height of its powers spawned hit music videos ("Do The Bartman!"), best-selling soundtrack albums, a sea of merchandising (okay, it still does) and a feature length film. But perhaps it's better to hear the story from the folks who brought the multifarious Springfield milieu to life. To celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the show, watch the below 80-minute roundtable talk from 2013 featuring Conan O'Brien, Al Jean, Mike Reiss, Jay Kogen and Jeff Martin. As diehard fans know, O'Brien led the show's writer's room during what. »

The year late-night got it right... and dodged another meltdown

15 December 2014 5:09 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Was it really as simple as getting rid of Jay Leno? For the longest time, late-night television was a battlefield. Beginning with Johnny Carson's retirement in 1992—which set up the Leno/Letterman divide that would define the landscape for two decades—and best epitomized by the disastrous 2009 Tonight Show handover and subsequent takeback from Conan O'Brien, late-night has always been a bloody zero-sum conflict that inflated every minor change to the equation into a major tectonic shift. NBC so bungled the Leno/O'Brien transition that when rumors began to emerge in early 2013 that the last-place network was planning to »

See Robert Patrick become Terminator 2's T-1000 again on Conan

15 December 2014 4:24 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Robert Patrick has once again proven why Terminator 2: Judgment Day's T-1000 is one of the most frightening movie characters of all-time.

The actor reflected on his audition for the 1991 James Cameron movie on Conan, and regaled the audience with the tale of how his intense expression first frightened the director.

It seemed only natural for Conan O'Brien to ask Patrick to re-create the fateful expression that won him the role of the T-1000.

"It's been 25 years," Patrick initially complained, before adding: "That's a lot to ask for! Well, I guess I can do it for you."

After directing the cameraman to film his face "nice and tight", Patrick let loose with his most intimidating T-1000 glare.

"You've still got it," fellow guest Rebecca Romijn declared.

Terminator Genisys: Arnold Schwarzenegger is back in first trailer

Patrick is currently starring in the crime drama Scorpion, airing on CBS in »

Watch the Entire Fourth Season of 'Conan' In Under Five Minutes (Video)

15 December 2014 8:47 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Conan O'Brien is one of the funniest human beings currently living, this much is certain. And while his late night comedy show on TBS isn't the most hugely watched show in late night, it is frequently the most hilarious and certainly the strangest. If you need a reminder of just how funny (and weird), check out this expertly edited video that, with a running time of just under five minutes, distills Conan's entire fourth season into a nonstop barrage of insane madness.

Among the highlights: Conan's Tinder date with Dave Franco, his needling of robotic coworker Jordan Schlansky, a never-ending series of guests and monologues and, of course, his infamous Lyft ride with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, something that, without exaggeration, reduced me to tears.

Just watch. It will make your Monday infinitely better.

Santa Claus Reveals Hideous Secrets on 'Conan'

12 December 2014 10:18 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You don't want to believe your childhood idols have a dark side, but Conan O'Brien is a fearless journalist who chooses the truth over comfort. He interrogated that mysterious recluse Santa Claus about his private life, and it turns out Santa's not innocent as he seems. Sigh. Clasp your poinsettia tight because everything you thought you knew about Santa is a lie.   »

David Letterman's Final 'Late Show' Set For May

10 December 2014 6:20 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

David Letterman will read his final Top 10 list on his last "Late Show" on May 20, 2015, CBS announced today.

The veteran late night show is stepping away from his desk, the blue cue cards, and the banter with Paul Schaffer after a record 32 years. Letterman has been a fixture on the late night scene since the days of Johnny Carson on "The Tonight Show." He hosted "Late Night" on NBC for 11 years, but switched to CBS when he was passed over to take over for his mentor by Jay Leno.

That move sparked a feud between Letterman and Leno that lasted for two decades. But now Leno is gone, and Letterman is the elder statesman among late night show hosts. His rivals are now younger men - Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show," Jimmy Kimmel on ABC, and Conan O'Brien on TBS.

Letterman announced his retirement last spring, and a week later, »

Conan O'Brien Gets Tango Lesson from Jb Smoove (Video)

10 December 2014 4:35 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you're going to get an on-air tango lesson, you could do a lot worse for a teacher than a guy named Jb Smoove. And Smoove, who costars in Chris Rock's new film, Take Five, didn't disappoint pupil Conan O'Brien Tuesday night, when he appeared on Conan for the impromptu tutorial. Watching the two 6-foot-plus men dip each each extremely low as co-host Andy Richter looks on is, well ... honestly, it's actually hard to look away, like watching tropical birds perform their mating dance. Smoove recently told The New York Times that he actually got started in the entertainment industry as a hip-hop dancer, »

Best of Late Night TV: Joaquin Phoenix's Twisted Engagement Story, Aaron Paul's Big Birthday Surprise (Video)

8 December 2014 11:10 PM, PST | 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.

Joaquin Phoenix was on "Late Show with David Letterman" Monday night, sharing a really odd story - not that there's any other kind with him - about starting yoga, and getting tangled up in some positions, like "Harness of the Hog." He and Dave took the story to the middle of the stage so Joaquin could demonstrate. But it turns out he started dating his yoga instructor and they recently got engaged. This guy. Who knows what to think with him. Remember when Joaquin was on this show a while back and Dave said it's a shame he couldn't be there that night? Good times! Joaquin talked about that »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Was the Most Excited 16-Year-Old 'Jeopardy!' Contestant

6 December 2014 2:50 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It was a throwback Thursday for Joseph-Gordon Levitt when he appeared on Conan on Dec. 4.

Late night host Conan O'Brien brought up the fact that the actor was on Jeopardy! when he was 16-years-old. Back in 1997, a young Gordon-Levitt was on the celebrity edition.

Joseph started acting at 7-years-old, and by the time he was on Jeopardy! he already starred in tv shows 3rd Rock From the Sun, Roseanne and The Powers That Be as well as various movies including Angels in the Outfield, A River Runs Through It and Beethoven.

With his signature long hair, he was an energetic teenager. As O'Brien said before they watched the clip, "You're 16, but I love your enthusiasm."

In the 17-year-old video, Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek provided the answer to the question, "Holden Caulfield, the hero of this Salinger novel, hates movies, phonies, and his classmate Ernest Morrow."

But all that can be heard over Trebek's voice is an excited »

When host Conan O'Brien brought up a photo of Aniston from the movie and asked about her X-rated necklace, the 45-year-old actress shocked audience members with her dirty talk. "That's a cock ring!"

Best of Late Night TV: Jennifer Aniston's Deleted Coma Sex, Ryan Seacrest's 'Geeky' Childhood Photo (Video)

4 December 2014 11:10 PM, PST | 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.

Thursday night was relatively quiet, with Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman and Seth Meyers all airing repeats.

Ryan Seacrest was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" promoting his upcoming New Year's show. He'll actually turn 40 on Christmas Eve, and he remembers when his dad turned 40 and they put an "Over the Hill" sign in the yard. Now he doesn't feel like 40 is that old, but Jimmy (who is 47) insisted it is old. Jimmy listed all the projects Ryan has going on, wondering if Ryan is capable of sitting still for a full minute. So Jimmy challenged him. They made a game of it - "Can Ryan Seacrest Sit Still For One Minute? »

Best of Late Night TV: Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Fake Nose and Billy Eichner's Song For Taylor Swift (Video)

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 moment of truth is finally here: "Jimmy Kimmel Live" aired the hotly anticipaited Live finale of fake reality show "Do You Have What It Takes?" and it was just amazing as you would have hoped. Spoiler alert: someone definitely has what it takes, but we're not going to tell you who. Watch the video!

Kimmel also had "Modern Family" actress Sofia Vergara on the show, who mused about her path to citizenship in the good ol' USofA. Like everything she says, this story is funny and charming.

Over on Conan, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Conan O'Brien had a fake nose-off, which pretty much consisted of them wearing fake noses and yelling at each other. »

Best of Late Night TV: Reese Witherspoon's Awkward 'Random Phrase Carols,' Ethan Hawke's New Glasses (Video)

2 December 2014 11:28 PM, PST | 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.

David Letterman and Seth Meyers are on repeats this week, but Jimmy Fallon is still keeping the holiday spirit alive. On Tuesday night, he and Reese Witherspoon sang "Random Phrase Carols," where classic holiday song lyrics were replaced by random words. For example, "Jingle Bells" became "Small Old Man." (Now "Small old man, small old man, small old man named Tom..." is in our heads forever.) Reese didn't quite nail her solo song, but then she and Jimmy did a little duet. The whole thing was pretty random, but after hearing the same Christmas carols a thousand times a year it's nice to have new lyrics.

Anyway, Reese was »
