Best of Late Night TV: Jon Cryer Recreates Duckie's 'Pretty in Pink' Dance, a Toast to 'Justified' (Video)

15 April 2015 12:00 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.

Jon Cryer, Grace Helbig, and Freida Pinto were on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" Tuesday night. Jon, aka Duckie, did a "Pretty in Pink" routine with James. They recreated his record store dance to Otis Redding's "Try a Little Tenderness," and even took it into the audience. Jimmy Fallon must be biting his fingernails over these fun bits -- especially since "The Tonight Show" is on repeats this week and James is having a blast. Here's the new "Pretty in Pink" dance and the original from the movie: In other "Late Late Show" news, the group talked about Uber. Freida has lived in L.A. for three years now, »

MTV Movie Awards Takes A Ratings Tumble

14 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Marking Amy Schumer’s first major hosting gig, and a move back to 8 Pm, Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards took a nosedive, attracting an average of 1.55 million in its premiere. Last year at this time, only one hour later, about 2.84 million people tuned in to the Conan O'Brien-hosted trophy show. Back then, that was considered not good – a 27% tumble from the previous year’s crowd of 3.77 million. That 2013 show had been up compared with the previous year's 3.2 million, even… »

10 things to watch for at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards: Avengers, Amy Schumer, Kevin Hart

9 April 2015 4:14 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The MTV Movie Awards have been touch and go for years, but there's one thing we feel fairly confident about regarding the 2015 edition: Amy Schumer will rule. The star of Comedy Central's "Inside Amy Schumer" and Universal Pictures upcoming (but already critically acclaimed) comedy "Trainwreck" is a stand-up force.  Schumer should have no problem winning over the Nokia Theater audience or viewers at home.  Considering Conan O'Brien seemed out of his element last year and Rebel Wilson pretty much bombed in 2013, that's actually something to look forward to. Another reason to watch this year's MTV Movie Awards is the fact so many categories are up in the air.  With the "Twilight" series no longer in the mix many thought "The Hunger Games" would rule until the end of the franchise.  Instead, "Catching Fire" took home only three Moon Men last year and, in some ways, the MTV Movie Awards »

Kristen Stewart Jokes About Channeling Justin Bieber and Almost "S--ting" Her Pants With Robert Redford—Watch Now!

9 April 2015 6:01 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Kristen Stewart is a jack-of-all-trades. Even though she spends most of her time acting on the big screen, she sometimes dabbles with the small screen! While appearing on Conan Wednesday, she discussed her stint in one of Jenny Lewis' music videos, in which she had to dress up as a guy. Host Conan O'Brien praised her work but couldn't help but notice that she resembled someone in particular: Justin Bieber. "There was some Justin Bieber in there," he said. "Minus the mustache." "In his dreams," she joked, disagreeing with the redheaded host's assessment. "I didn't even mean that. I don't even know where that came from." K.Stew opened up about »

Best of Late Night TV: Louis C.K. Refused to Hire Jimmy Fallon in '90s, Rick Gervais' Awkward Man-Wich (Video)

7 April 2015 11:58 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.

Louis C.K. was on "The Tonight Show" and he and Jimmy Fallon discussed some personal history. Apparently Jimmy forgot, but he auditioned for Louis when Louis was the head writer for "The Dana Carvey Show" in the '90s. They were auditioning people to be in the cast and Jimmy came in - this adorable little boy (as Louis recalled). Jimmy played his guitar and had little troll dolls, then turned and wiggled his tight little a**. Jimmy argued that he definitely didn't turn and wiggle his butt several times. When the names came up for casting, all the women in the staff argued for Jimmy but Louis and »

Conan O'Brien and Chris Parnell just brilliantly mocked Indiana

1 April 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This is the kind of clip that keeps Conan O'Brien's comedy one step above the rest of the late night fray: Not only is it topical and hilarious, but it's damning too. Watch as Conan O'Brien and Chris Parnell (as Indiana's "religion czar" in charge of enforcing the state's new, arguably discriminatory "religious freedom" bill) discuss how easy it is to recognize homosexuals in a crowd or at a leather bar. Andy Richter can't help but cackle. »

Trevor Noah to succeed Jon Stewart as 'Daily Show' host

30 March 2015 6:04 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Daily Show" has found a successor to Jon Stewart, and it's... South African comic Trevor Noah. “It’s an honor to follow Jon Stewart," Noah said in Comedy Central's announcement of the move. "He and the team at ‘The Daily Show’ have created an incredible show whose impact is felt all over the world. In my brief time with the show they’ve made me feel so welcome. I’m excited to get started and work with such a fantastic group of people.” “I’m thrilled for the show and for Trevor," Stewart himself added. "He’s a tremendous comic and talent that we’ve loved working with…In fact, I may rejoin as a correspondent just to be a part of it!!!” Since December, Noah has appeared a handful of times as a "Daily Show" correspondent, so this isn't exactly as sharp a departure as Craig Kilborn was replaced by Stewart, »

James Corden Explains How He Ended Up in a Bathtub With David Beckham

27 March 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

We already have plenty of reasons to love James Corden, the new host of The Late Late Show, so the fact that he took a bath with David Beckham is just icing on the cake. James stopped by Conan after a smashing first week - which included reenacting Tom Hanks movies with Tom Hanks and singing in a car with Mariah Carey - and Conan O'Brien of course seized the opportunity to ask about the bathtub moment in question. Watch the hilarious video above. »

James Corden Recalls Taking a Bath With David Beckham—Watch Now!

27 March 2015 7:33 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

James Corden is living the dream! Sure, he's got a great gig hosting CBS' Late Late Show, but that's nothing compared to the time he got to experience taking a bubble bath with David Beckham! On Thursday's Conan, Corden recounted sharing a tub with Victoria Beckham's hunky husband. "We were just relaxing as we often do, and we didn't know that there was a photograph being taken," he said, getting laughs from Conan O'Brien and the audience. "We were just relaxing at the end of a day like we often do, so, there's nothing more to it than that..." Of course, there's a little more to it than that! Corden and Beckham were actually shooting a sketch for Comic »

Outrage Watch: Do we have a new 'Gamergate' on our hands?

25 March 2015 11:36 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the March 25, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story: do we have a new "Gamergate" on our hands? "The new Gamergate: Angry white men are trying to shut down diverse comics," reads the headline of a piece written by Salon's Matt Binder, who claims that "right-wing parasites, misogynist Men’s Rights activists, and opportunistic grifters" including Breitbart contributor Milo Yiannopoulos (many of whom, he alleges, probably don't even read comics) are taking aim at attempts to add more women and racial minorities to mainstream comics, most notably the woman Thor. "The fact that a woman playing Thor would cause such outrage, when even a frog is able to take up the title of Thor sans controversy, is absurd," Binder writes before citing numerous other examples of targeted attacks by the trolls in question.

Robert Durst Terrorizes 'Conan'

24 March 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Just when the world thought it was safe from Robert Durst, the wheezing millionaire and accused killer terrorized Conan and sent host Conan O'Brien and announcer Andy Richter into a panic Monday night.

Despite Durst's arrest last week, Richter pointed out that with his money and connections, he could have easily weaseled his way out of prison and gone on the lam. While O'Brien seemed skeptical at first, his worst fears were realized with Durst's bespectacled head suddenly appeared on camera.

Conan O’Brien Turned Robert Durst Into a Terrifying Pop-Up Ghoul

24 March 2015 2:06 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Capitalizing on the recent (rabid) popularity of HBO's The Jinx, Conan O'Brien took a moment at the beginning of his late-night show to lampoon "the creepy millionaire accused of three murders." According to Conan, Robert Durst is so sneaky that his floating, ghostly likeness can pop up anywhere and everywhere. Sos, Durst alert! The clip's kind of like a shorter version of that horror movie It Follows, just with retro Dark Shadows music and Popsicle sticks. »

Sean Penn Blames George W. Bush and Dick Cheney for Creating Isis—Watch Now!

When he's not watching The Bachelorette, Sean Penn can be found keeping up with politics. The Oscar winner appeared on Conan Thursday night and let show host Conan O'Brien know how he feels Isis came about: It was former President George W. Bush and Dick Cheney's fault. "These are the guys, [Cheney] and President Bush and some others, who invented Daesh, or Isis," Penn said, using the Arabic name for the terror group. "I mean, they really are that which created it, and so I wanted to give him a shout-out. "Thanks for that," he added. He continued to slam the former vice president Cheney, referring to him as "embittered bacteria" and even questioned how the »

Nimoy was the subject of tributes the world over when he passed away last month following a long battle with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Quinto and Nimoy developed a close bond while working together on the rebooted Star Trek films.

During an appearance on Conan, Quinto spent a few minutes discussing his admiration for the science fiction icon.

"We were very, very close," Quinto told Conan O'Brien. "I feel so grateful that I knew him and that he was such an instrumental figure in my life."
