In a preview of his March 1 south-of-the-border special, "Conan Without Borders: Made in Mexico," Conan O'Brien walks the streets of Mexico City asking for donations for President Trump's border wall, which Trump has famously vowed Mexico will pay for.

O'Brien held out a mini wall-shaped piggy bank and asked for money. "You would put love in there?" he asked one woman who said that is what she wanted to provide. "No, I need cash."

"If you donate 500 pesos you get your name on a brick on the wall," he said to a man he was trying to persuade. »

Review: 'The Lego Batman Movie' is Gotham City's Finest Hour Yet

7 February 2017 11:21 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Before The Lego Batman Movie, Chris McKay (of Moral Orel, Robot Chicken) was best known as the animation co-director and editor of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller’s 2014 film, The Lego Movie. His work on the critically acclaimed film earned him the American Cinema Editors Eddie Award for Best Edited Feature Film, Animation, as well as an Annie Award nomination for Best Edited Animation Feature Film. Now, McKay will forever be known as the guy who saved Gotham City’s Caped Crusader from a dark and gritty existence with The Lego Batman Movie, perhaps the best film based on a DC Comics property since 2008’s The Dark Knight, and maybe the best pure Batman movie since Nolan's Batman Begins (2005). The story opens with The Joker, voiced by Zach Galifianakis, leading a full-scale attack on Gotham City with Batman's vast Rogues Gallery of bad guys, including heavy hitters Bane (Doug »

Conan O'Brien Demands Halt to Lawsuit Accusing Him of Stealing Five Jokes

6 February 2017 7:40 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

According to Conan O'Brien, being called a "joke thief" is no laughing matter.

"Accusing a comedian of stealing a joke is the worst thing you can accuse them of, in my opinion, short of murder," he said during a deposition last September and released in court papers on Friday. "I think it's absolutely terrible."

O'Brien, his company Conaco, TBS, and other writers on his show, Conan, have now submitted a summary judgment motion aimed at defeating a copyright lawsuit brought by Robert "Alex" Kaseberg, who claims having five jokes posted on his blog lifted for O'Brien's monologue.

Tom Brady Destroys Conan O'Brien While Playing 'Clueless Gamer,' But Marshawn Lynch Steals the Show

3 February 2017 6:46 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

If you're an Atlanta Falcons fan who believes in omens, you probably shouldn't watch this video.

In the third annual Super Bowl edition of "Clueless Gamer," Conan O'Brien welcomed New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to play For Honor with a few special guests.

After easily defeating O'Brien in the first round, Brady went up against Falcons defensive end, Dwight Freeney, who was still holding a grudge for all the times Brady beat him on the football field in the past.

Despite a valiant effort, Freeney's video game skills didn't match up to his athletic abilities, and he too fell Brady's onslaught of video game attacks.

"He won!" O'Brien, a New England native, proclaimed. "The Patriots won!"

2 February 2017 11:40 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Fifty Shades Darker brings the erotic romantic affair between Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) back to the big screen.

He may play the seductive Christian Grey on the silver screen, but Jamie Dornan has some moves of his own.  In the middle of an interview on Conan Wednesday night, the Irish star demonstrated just how strong he is when he mounted himself on top off the late-night host's desk. But, before he performed the stunt, the star had a warning.  "Just before I do this, if my face breaks or anything—you will play for all of that," he quipped.  While Conan O'Brien admitted he wouldn't personally be paying for any injury, Dornan proceeded to lift his body off the ground in a semi-handstand on the comedian's desk. The trick looked flawless, but under Dornan's »

Conan O’Brien is headed south of the border. The next installment of the “Conan” host’s travelogue specials, “Conan Without Borders,” will come to viewers from Mexico City, airing March 1 at 10/9c on TBS.

The Mexico City-shot special will be entirely outsourced, using an all-Mexican staff, crew, audience, and guests.

“Although I’m eager to make a show in Mexico, if the U.S. government meets my demand for $100 million in tax incentives, I will consider relocating production to Akron,” O’Brien said.

The announcement came mere hours after President Donald Trump was said to be mulling a 20% import tax on Mexican goods to pay for a massive wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, and comes amid growing tensions between the two countries. Prior to his taking the Oath of Office, Trump had also claimed to be responsible for manufacturer Carrier keeping jobs in Indiana rather than moving them to Mexico in exchange for tax »
