12 February 2016 1:39 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At this point, it’s safe to say “The Simpsons” has changed television forever. The animated series — which, in case you’ve forgotten, premiered way back in 1989, and is now in its 27th season — has seen its fair share of ups and downs, and become a sort of hotbed of critical debate, with some quick to write off every season after thirteen, and others clinging to the endless nostalgia of Homer and company. Granted, certain seasons have wound up unanimously reviled, while certain episodes have becomes staples of the genre. Throughout it all, though, the show has quite simply remained a wildly popular cultural staple.

“Full Frontal With Samantha Bee,” a new weekly series on TBS fronted by the “Daily Show” grad, drew solid sampling of more than 2 million viewers across multiple Turner networks in its premiere last night.

Airing at 10:30 p.m., telecasts of “Full Frontal” combined to draw 2.16 million viewers on Adult Swim (986,000), TBS (629,000), TNT (402,000) and TruTV (142,000). Roughly 1.22 million of the viewers were adults 18-49, with Adult Swim accounting for about 570,000 and TBS about 355,000.

Full Frontal” will be serving as the lead-in to “Conan” every Monday night, and last night it easily outdrew over the long-running talkshow in the ratings. “Conan” on Monday averaged 368,000 viewers, including 236,000 adults 18-49.

Conan O'Brien's 'Clueless Gamer' Super Bowl edition is back

5 February 2016 8:40 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Conan O'Brien's Super Bowl edition of "Clueless Gamer" is back, which means it's now a Super Bowl tradition, like the Puppy Bowl and being let down by the commercials.  Last year, Conan, New England Patriots' Rob Gronkowski and Seattle Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch played "Mortal Kombat X" in a Marriott conference room. This year, Conan had Carolina Panthers' Josh Norman and Denver Broncos' Von Miller play "Doom" in a Marriott conference room. Conan welcomed Miller, even though, he claimed, Miller made his daughter cry when he tackled Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady all those times in the Afc Championship game. (It's very likely that it was actually Pats fan and Boston native Conan who did the crying.)  Watch as Conan, Norman and Miller chainsaw demons apart and punch their heads off, talk about fashion, sip wine, plan organic chicken farm ad campaigns, and enjoy the company of a special guest star. »

Here's How 'It's Always Sunny' Almost Killed Danny DeVito

3 February 2016 9:33 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Anyone who watches It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia on a regular basis knows that Danny DeVito's Frank Reynolds has gone through some hard knocks. And every season, the gang almost does him in with their shenanigans. The show's unprecedented Season 11 just launched a few weeks back. And as star Charlie Day tells it, it was almost the last for poor Danny DeVito.

Danny DeVito is in his early 70s, but that doesn't stop him from participating in the outlandish behavior that a show like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia requires. He is usually game to participate in whatever stunt the gang asks of him. But one of these incidents got a little out of hand, and the legendary sitcom and movie actor almost drowned. Charlie Day recounted the harrowing moments on set to Conan O'Brien earlier this week. Here's what happened.&#160

'Conan' Shows How No Animals Were Harmed in 'The Revenant'

28 January 2016 9:42 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"The Revenant" is up for 12 Academy Awards this year, with Leonardo DiCaprio considered *thisclose* to a lock for Best Actor. Conan O'Brien addressed the film in his "Conan" monologue, and mentioned the "pretty intense scenes with animals, particularly bears and horses." He added, "A lot of animal rights groups would normally be concerned about this, but the director went pretty far out of his way to show that no animals were harmed during the making of 'The Revenant.' You can tell when you watch the movie."

He then posted a clip from the movie, which includes a shot you probably don't recall seeing in the theater, where a horse that looks like it's about to fall off a cliff magically flies away, then tells the audience, "See? I'm fine, everybody! I die peacefully in my sleep eight years from now. So long!"

Here's the clip:

It’s a Vigodal Eclipse! Conan Pays a Touching Tribute to Abe Vigoda

27 January 2016 8:56 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Abe Vigoda has many credits to his name, and one of them, too, should be his frequent late-night appearances. Vigoda was a favorite of Conan O'Brien, so when news of Abe Vigoda's death broke (yes, really) it was only fitting that the late-night host pay tribute to the man who appeared in so many guises: Abe Viyoda, as a Vigodal eclipse, Christmas-tree Vigoda, and hitchhiker Vigoda. Good-bye, Abe. Be free. »

Watch Abe Vigoda Laugh Off Reports of His Own Death (Video)

26 January 2016 12:13 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Abe Vigoda, the “Godfather” and “Barney Miller” star who died today at age 94, was dogged by reports of his death as far back as the early 1980s — so much so that the whole thing became a running gag across late-night television and elsewhere, with Vigoda often in on the joke. In a 1980s appearance on “Late Night With David Letterman,” Vigoda showed up to prove that a recent news story about his untimely demise was untrue. (See video above.) Later on, he regularly popped by “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” to poke fun at his own still-alive persona. In the. »

Abe Vigoda Really Dies at Age 94

26 January 2016 11:50 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

We knew this day would come eventually, but that doesn't make it any easier: Actor Abe Vigoda has actually, truly died at the age of 94, TMZ reports. He had reportedly been under hospice care for a week. The Barney Miller star was first reported dead in an issue of People magazine in 1982, and the subject of his mortality became a long-running Hollywood joke in the years afterward, with Vigoda often joining David Letterman and Conan O'Brien to make fun of his supposed demise. The rumor of Vigoda's death even prompted the creation of a single-line website, AbeVigoda.com, which simply reported that the actor was still alive; on Tuesday, the site was updated for the first and only time. »

Rip Abe Vigoda (and Abe Vi-Yoda), the legendary character actor

26 January 2016 11:34 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

According to TMZ, legendary actor Abe Vigoda passed away today at the age of 94. Vigoda gained fame playing Sal Tessio in The Godfather but was perhaps best known for his role as Sgt. Phil Fish on the sitcom Barney Miller and its short-lived spinoff FishVigoda was also famous for being misreported as dead. In 1982, People mistakenly referred to him as "the late Abe Vigoda." Vigoda, in turn, posed in a coffin for a funny photo shoot holding the erroneous magazine copy. In 1987, a TV reporter in Secaucus, New Jersey also called Vigoda "late." Since then, Vigoda mocked his strange press history in various appearances on David Letterman and Conan O'Brien's talk shows. Once he even got to scream at Letterman, "I'm not dead yet, you pinhead!"  To honor the memory of Sgt. Fish, here's one of his many appearances with Conan O'Brien. Fast-forward to 7:20 to see him »

Kate Middleton’s Visit to the Downton Abbey Set Was Plagued With Accidental Sexual Innuendo; Blimey!

24 January 2016 11:41 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Joanne Froggatt is quite charming. Anna Bates, too, is a charming (albeit incredibly hapless) character on Downton Abbey. So when the Duchess of Cambridge herself, Kate Middleton, stopped by the set last year for a visit, Froggatt and fellow Downtonian Michelle Dockery tried to exude as much class and decorum as humanly possible while in the presence of royalty. Alas, it fell apart quickly. As she explains to Conan O'Brien (speaking of O'Briens — do you think she's still living her life as a lady's maid in India, or ... ?) while on Conan: "We were doing a scene in the bedroom. I said, Yeah, not many people get to come in Lady Mary's bedroom. And then I was like, Oh, my God, what have I just said?" Anna! What would Mr. Carson think? »

Although Conan O'Brien is used to making America laugh every night on TV, the talk show host had his family in stitches while sitting courtside at the Clippers game on Monday in Los Angeles.

Joanne Froggatt's Raunchy Comment to Kate Middleton on the Downton Abbey Set Will Make You Blush

21 January 2016 7:35 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

What do you do when Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, visits your show's set? If you're Joanne Froggatt, you accidentally make a raunchy comment.
