Best of Late Night TV: Dwayne Johnson's Graduation Speech and Heidi Klum's Kangaroo Balls

21 May 2015 11:46 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.

"The Tonight Show" has been bringing their A-game in the skit department lately, and this week Jimmy Fallon and Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock) delivered a circa 1989 graduation speech. The catch? They're the two lowest GPAs in class. Advice for fellow grads includes "don't get caught up in fads that won't last like 'computers,'" and "the future is now...well, actually now's the present." Getting inspirational tattoos in 3...2...1...

Apparently, Heidi Klum is known for giving her friends super weird presents, and she gifted Seth Meyers a kangaroo scrotum bottle opener from Australia. No further comment, just watch the clip. (Also, for all the kangaroos watching, this is Nsfw. »

21 May 2015 6:31 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Conan O'Brien bid farewell to David Letterman with a touching, hilarious monologue on Conan Wednesday night, and later urged his viewers to change the channel and watch the longtime host's final episode of The Late Show.

"There are no words that can encapsulate the sheer magnitude of what Dave has achieved these past 33 years," O'Brien said. "It cannot be done. He has been the North Star for me and every comic of my generation."

While O'Brien tried to explain Letterman's influence in an essay for Entertainment Weekly, on Conan he »

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.

This is it. The end of an era. Wednesday, May 20 was all about David Letterman's retirement from late night TV after 33 years, and his final night as host of "The Late Show." Stephen Colbert will take over "Late Show" on September 8. You should head to TheLateShow on YouTube to catch up on all the videos posted from the past few weeks, but here are the main segments from last night -- if nothing else, you should watch the epic star-studded Top 10 list.

Here's Dave's final show entrance, with the crowd standing to cheer: Dave's final monologue started after he forced the audience to calm down and stop chanting for him. »

Conan Gives Thanks to David Letterman One Last Time

20 May 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In honor of David Letterman's last show, Conan O'Brien paid the retiring talk-show host yet another tribute. This one involved a solid throwback clip, as well as a very touching gesture: He encouraged viewers to switch to The Late Show, should they, for whatever reason, be watching Conan on this bittersweet night instead. "I promise you: We will not see a man of his talents and comedic integrity again in our lifetime, and you do not want to miss out," O'Brien said, after sharing a winner of an anecdote about Letterman being a hero and him being a national punch line. "Have a great show, Dave, and from the bottom of my heart, thank you." »

Obama to O’Brien: Letterman Gets Social Sendoff

20 May 2015 6:58 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As David Letterman marked his final night as host of “Late Show,” fans as diverse as President Obama and Conan O’Brien paid their respect on social media. Here are some of Variety’s favorites:

TV won't be the same without Dave. pic.twitter.com/9q5NHTf3b5

Barack Obama (@BarackObama) May 20, 2015

It's absolutely absurd to thank David Letterman for all he's done in a tweet. But that's the world we live in now. #ThanksDave

Conan O'Brien (@ConanOBrien) May 21, 2015

Tonight is David @Letterman’s final show. What a wonderful, inspiring, hilarious, groundbreaking, amazing ride. #ThanksDave

Congratulations to David Letterman, who I now believe is beginning his third career in show business.

#ThanksDave—for two decades of laughs, insights, and, yes, even pantsuit jokes. @Letterman, you're a legend. »

Watch Jimmy Kimmel's Teary, Bittersweet Letterman Tribute

20 May 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

As we inch toward to an 11:35 p.m. time slot without David Letterman, many of today's hosts have paid tribute to the man who changed the face of late-night television. Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Fallon have already honored the influential Letterman, and on Tuesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel delivered an emotional monologue where he thanked Letterman for single-handedly inspiring his career in entertainment.

In a teary remembrance — Kimmel had to stop numerous times to compose himself — the host shared staying up late at night to "watch a television show »

I'll miss you, David Letterman

20 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As I begin writing this I'm watching David Letterman, in one of his final appearances as host of "The Late Show," walk out to greet the audience as he's done thousands of times. He's talking about the weather in New York, again, as he's done countless times. After Wednesday, he'll never walk out onto that Ed Sullivan Theater stage and shoot the breeze about the weather again. He'll never again throw it to Paul Shaffer and the CBS Orchestra to kick off the show. The misfits, alas, will have lost their shepherd. Because at his core, that's who Letterman is and has been. He has represented the off-brand sensibilities of an audience allergic to the vanilla stylings of his cool kid contemporaries. He has been the kind of personality who could give us Stupid Pet Tricks and turn throwing a football at a meatball-topped Christmas tree into an annual tradition. »

David Letterman: A Late-Night Look Through Three Decades

19 May 2015 2:27 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

"Everything he did seemed wrong. He didn't look right. His manner, his affect, everything seemed wrong because he was so profoundly original.” That's Conan O'Brien talking about David Letterman, the gap-toothed Indiana weathercaster who went on to become the longest-serving late-night talk show host in TV history, ending his run this week at more than three decades. Letterman’s final announced guest, for tonight’s night’s penultimate broadcast, is Bill Murray, who, not… »

Conan O'Brien Mocks 'Lazy' Kimmel, Reveals Plan to Honor David Letterman

15 May 2015 6:11 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Last week, Jimmy Kimmel revealed he would air a repeat on May 20 in honor of David Letterman's final show, to not distract from his idol's big farewell. Well, Conan O'Brien's -- who will be airing a new show that night, along with Jimmy Fallon and others -- has an answer to that move.

"That's just a lazy excuse," Conan joked (we think) to Charlie Rose. "That's just anything to get a night off." It's not an homage from Kimmel to Letterman? "Oh no no no no," Conan continued. "He's constantly looking for a way to not do a show. He just likes to sleep." (Kimmel did have a few days off this week...) Conan added, "In tribute to Dave on my last night I'm going to show an episode of Kimmel. I think that's perfect." Haha. What will he really do? "I will try and take some of the spotlight from Dave, »

Conan On David Letterman’s Last Night: “No One’s Going To Be Watching Us Anyway”

14 May 2015 5:08 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

"In tribute to Dave on my last night I'm going to show an episode of Kimmel," Conan O'Brien tells Charlie Rose tonight on Rose’s PBS program, about his plans for David Letterman's final night as host of CBS' Late Show. “I will try and take some of the spotlight away from Dave,” Conan joked. “This is what comics do. I’m going to come out, on the air. I’ll be naked that night.” While Kimmel announced last week his show will be a repeat that night, because he does not want… »

Samantha Bee Is “Female as Fuck” in New TBS Promo

13 May 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Samantha Bee is not overlooking the magnitude of the fact that she will soon be late-night's only female host. In a new promo, the former Daily Show correspondent muses about something missing from a wall of photos of male hosts (with plenty of digs at them). And if anyone misses the not-so-subtle message, she spells out plainly at the end: "I'm female as fuck." Fuck yeah! Check out the teaser here, and apologies for the autoplay (which TBS's video is not letting me code my way out of): After 12 years on The Daily Show, Bee left the series May 1st. Her husband Jason Jones departed the series earlier to work on a new scripted comedy for TBS, The Detour, where both he and Bee are executive producers (Jones will also star). Bee's new late-night series will be paired with Conan O'Brien's show, which has proved a hard slot »

Conan O’Brien Is Making a ‘Funny’ X-Files

13 May 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As part of the Turner Broadcasting upfront, executive producer Conan O'Brien and The Office producer Greg Daniels reunite for a TBS comedy pilot about alien abductees called The Group. (They both went to Harvard and worked together on an HBO comedy special called Not Necessarily the News before heading over to SNL.) O'Brien says that the show is not an alien gimmick but an original, character-driven comedy piece. “The script is an absolute page-turner,” he told Vulture before Turner’s Madison Square Garden presentation this morning. “It wasn’t even particularly that it was about aliens that attracted me to it. It felt like a very funny X-Files.” Here’s hoping Mulder and Scully make cameos. »

Turner Upfront: Steve Carell, Conan Get Shows; Jason Jones Will Star in The Detour

13 May 2015 7:28 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Turner Broadcasting, whose portfolio includes TBS, CNN, truTV, Adult Swim, and Cartoon Network, among multiple others, is moving forward with more original programming. The big news comes at TBS, which got The Daily Show funny couple Jason Jones and Samantha Bee on their own projects. As had been announced, they would be producing a show for TBS starring Jones, and we now know it's called The Detour. They're also set to do an "issues-oriented series" (we're thinking it'll be similar to something we saw on Tds) with Bee headlining. Steve and Nancy Carell have a show on TBS called Angie Tribeca starring Rashida Jones, and Conan O'Brien reunites with The Office producer Greg Daniels for a TBS comedy pilot about alien abductees called The Group (nope, not the Mary McCarthy kind). Cary Fukunaga, True Detective's great man-bun, is doing a TNT show called The Alienist, based on the novel »

Watch Conan, Van Damme Recreate Dorky 'Kickboxer' Dance

13 May 2015 6:32 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jean-Claude Van Damme is known for kicking serious ass on-screen, but one of his finest cinematic moments happened on the dance floor. At the prompting of Conan O'Brien during Tuesday night's episode of Conan, the actor recreated his infamous, dorky moves from the 1989 martial arts classic Kickboxer

O'Brien sets up the dance in the above clip, telling his guest that it's one of his favorite movie scenes. He then rolls the footage, which features Van Damme decked out in a black tank-top and khakis, grooving to Beau Williams' "Feeling »

Jean-Claude Van Damme re-creates his classic Kickboxer dance scene with Conan O'Brien

12 May 2015 2:24 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

History was made on Conan on Monday (May 11) as Jean-Claude Van Damme re-created one of cinema's greatest scenes.

An interview with the martial artist turned into a party when Conan O'Brien asked Van Damme if he could replicate his dance moves from 1989's Kickboxer.

"I got the moves," the actor replied, before leaping to the Conan studio floor to cut a rug.

In the movie, it wasn't long before the scene turned violent, but Van Damme was more than ready to re-create a few of Kickboxer's signature kicks as well.

Van Damme also managed to promote an upcoming reboot of the Kickboxer franchise, in which he will star alongside Dave Bautista, Gina Carano and Georges St-Pierre.

It was surely a night that action movie fans will never forget!

Conan airs Mondays through Thursdays on TBS in the Us. Tru TV airs the series in the UK. »

Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev, Conan O'Brien Do the Splits Together—Watch Now!

12 May 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Nina Dobrev and Conan O'Brien aren't afraid to get flexible! On Monday's Conan, the Vampire Diaries star joined the late-night host as they ever so impressively did the splits together* (Ok, so Conan might've gotten a little help from the editing and special effects team at TBS, but this was one team effort Ftw). Nina, however, was totally legit with her split! The 26-year-old actress effortlessly showcased how well she can stretch while standing in front of Conan. She was wearing a dress, but fret not: Nina avoided any sort of wardrobe malfunction, even quipping, "Good thing I wore shorts today!" This isn't the first time Nina's flaunted her flexibility for Conan! Back in »

Cool Videos: Jean-Claude Van Damme recreates his Kickboxer dance

12 May 2015 11:17 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

While I was pretty indifferent towards the concept of a Kickboxer remake, the involvement of Jean-Claude Van Damme finally tossed some interest my way. With the addition of Dave Bautista (Spectre) and Gina Carano (Deadpool), the movie automatically jumped onto my must-see radar. I don't think any of the classic cheese of the original will make it into this iteration, but leave it up to Conan O'Brien to remind audiences of it and actually include Van Damme. Behold the classic Kickboxing dance scene re-imagined for a live audience. The Kickboxer remake will most likely hit sometime in 2015. »

Nina Dobrev Donned Her Fangs to Talk The Vampire Diaries on Conan

12 May 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Vampire Diaries' sixth season finale airs on Thursday, and that means only one episode left with star Nina Dobrev. She stopped by Conan to chat about the series and to show off her impressive flexibility. Though she doesn't get into details about the finale (we have pictures!), she does talk about filming sex scenes with her mom on the set and how awkward vampire fangs actually are. She even puts on her fangs - well, Katherine's fangs. Take a look at the video below to see her pique Zach Braff's interest with some sexy stories. And here she is teaching Conan O'Brien to make a vampire face. »
