'Conan' Accused of Stealing Jokes on Twitter, Andy Richter Reacts to Lawsuit

29 July 2015 5:50 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Put down that yo mama joke -- it belongs to someone else and you could be sued for lifting it!

Conan O'Brien's team is being sued for allegedly stealing four jokes from a freelance comedy writer who claims he posted them to his blog and Twitter before they appeared on "Conan." Named in Robert "Alex" Kaseberg's copyright infringement lawsuit are Conaco, TBS, Time Warner, Conan O'Brien, "Conan" executive producer Jeff Ross, and head writer Mike Sweeney. The suit details the four jokes he claims were stolen, along with their counterparts on air.

Here's one joke, which he claims he published on or around January 14:

A Delta flight this week took off from Cleveland to New York with just two passengers. And they fought over control of the armrest the entire flight."

After he posted that joke, he claims, this joke appeared in the "Conan" monologue:

Hey Now! The 10 most showstopping Howard Stern interview moments of 2015

27 July 2015 5:33 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I have written previously in this space about my unabashed adoration of Howard Stern, but even casual fans know that the King of All Media's skillful long-form interviewing style is one of his most enduring qualities. He conducts hard-hitting interrogations that feel like casual conversations, leading normally guarded celebrities to offer revelations and opinions they would probably never utter in another forum. This year alone, he has helped draw out newsworthy bites from a number of big stars, and with 2015 more than half over, I thought I'd recap the wildest, most revealing quotes that have come out of Studio 69 in the past six months and change (with attendant clips). Here we go... 1. Jason Alexander tells the real story behind Susan's "Seinfeld" demise Date: June 3 Behind-the-scenes dish on famous TV shows never gets old, and Alexander's tidbit about actress Heidi Swedberg (who played George's ill-fated fiancee Susan) was particularly juicy.

Got Him Again! Paul Rudd Can't Stop Pranking Conan O'Brien

17 July 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Let it be said now: Paul Rudd doesn't give up. When he commits to a prank, he will ride that prank into the ground, and he will not back down. Sure, he's probably super dedicated to acting and what not, but where he's truly ruthless in his need to have the last laugh. One could even say he's following in George Clooney's footsteps. His latest foil comes at the expense of none other than television's Conan O'Brien. Loyal watchers of the late-night host will recall that Rudd has a little tradition whenever he comes on the show: Instead of playing a clip from the movie he is supposed to be promoting, he'll instead surprise O'Brien with a clip from the 1988 Et knockoff Mac and Me. »

50 Cent remains in good spirits and is maintaining his sense of humor despite filing for bankruptcy, at least on television. The 40-year-old rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, had filed for bankruptcy protection on Monday, having incurred debts that range between $10 million to $50 million, which also include damages he was ordered to pay following a $5 million lawsuit over a sex tape. In May, Forbes reported that at one point, the rapper was worth $155 million. "Yeah, I need protection," a 50 Cent told Conan O'Brien on Conan on Wednesday, smiling.

Jack Black and Boy George Have a Viral Moment Singing "Hello, I Love You"

14 July 2015 8:31 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

At first glance, Jack Black and Boy George don't have much in common. Then again, they both love The Doors. Conan O'Brien urged them to whip out their wild sides on his show on Monday night, and the pair teamed up for a rendition of the band's 1968 hit "Hello, I Love You." The Doors' guitarist Robby Krieger even joined them on stage! They sound great together, and is it just me or does Boy George look better than ever? »

Best of Late Night TV: Paul Rudd's Drinko Game, Jack Black and Boy George Sing The Doors

14 July 2015 12:15 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.

You know Plinko, the "Price Is Right" game? Monday night on "The Tonight Show," the human perfection that is "Ant-Man" star Paul Rudd did a version with Jimmy Fallon called Drinko, requiring them to potentially drink things like "Bacon Soda" and Pickle Juice. They both had to drink Gravy, which is too nasty, but one of them ended up having to mix Gravy with Tequila: "They call it 'Thanksgiving' south of the border."

In his interview, Paul talked to Jimmy about trying to do a full "Basic Instinct" on his "Ant-Man" co-star Michael Douglas. It failed. But it's hilarious. It ended up looking like he was "pleasuring himself" while Michael was doing a monologue. »

Conan O’Brien Hijacks Comic-Con 2015 (Guest Blog)

10 July 2015 8:30 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Comic-Con 2015 was hijacked by Conan O’Brien, who effectively turned it into Conan-Con! O’Brien and TBS plotted Con domination with a coordinated blast of events to conquer all fans. The most powerful strike is the five-night broadcast of the cable television show from the historical Spreckles Theater in downtown San Diego. To mesmerize Con masses, Team Coco had trolleys crisscross the city wrapped in bright orange and featuring POP2 vinyl figures of O’Brien in several costumes with different facial expressions. Bus stops were also covered in TBS Conan O’Brien Pop Vinyl ads. Team Coco posted a »

Jennifer Lawrence Curses Up a Storm in 30 Seconds Because, You Know, Swearing Is Caring

10 July 2015 1:32 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Oh, Jennifer Lawrence, claiming you're just realizing that you may have a bit of a potty mouth. (Actually, the Oscar winner is really no more uncouth than most other people, it's only because her lack of affect is so rare among movie stars that she's been labeled sailor-ish in her manner of speaking.) "How did you just learn that?" her Hunger Games co-star Liam Hemsworth wondered incredulously during their appearance on Conan last night, along with Josh Hutcherson. Talking about the must-be-over-18 sign in Hall H for the Mockingjay Part 2 panel that he moderated yesterday at Comic-Con, Conan O'Brien added, "It's almost like they wrote that just for you!" "I »

'Hunger Games 5' Is Happening Teases Josh Hutcherson

10 July 2015 11:02 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, Lionsgate held their Hall H panel for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 at Comic-Con, where a new trailer debuted exclusively for the Sdcc fans. The panel was hosted by Conan O'Brien, who later had stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth on his late night talk show Conan, which has been broadcasting from Sdcc this week. During their interview, the host asked this trio of young stars if they've heard anything about the rumors of prequels and/or sequels being developed to continue the franchise, when Josh Hutcherson gave an interesting answer, blurting out a confirmation.

"There is..."

The actor then covered his mouth as a wide-eyed Jennifer Lawrence looked on. After realizing what he had done, the actor had this to say.

"I'm sorry, I can't say that. We'll see what happens."

It's worth noting that Josh Hutcherson wasn't the first one to spill the beans. »

Hunger Games: Watch the highlights from Mockingjay's Comic-Con panel

10 July 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Quite a lot of gossip about The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 was revealed at its Comic-Con International panel yesterday (July 10).

From the sound of drums signalling the entrance of franchise superstar Jennifer Lawrence, to some cheeky jokes from moderator Conan O'Brien, our camera captured it all.

Particularly of interest to many fans will be Liam Hemsworth's promise that the heroic Gale will have a lot more to do in Mockingjay - Part 2 than in past movies.

"I've kind of been on the sidelines for a long time," he admitted. "I've been watching the fight happen, and he's finally in the mix and heavily a part of the uprising and the military operations."

Bringing an end to such a successful franchise has been an "emotional" journey for both cast and crew, according to producer Nina Jacobson.

10 July 2015 9:48 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 made its appearance at Comic-Con yesterday with a grand entrance that was gloriously over the top and filled with surprises.

Lionsgate went all out in making the event something to remember. And now they have officially released video from this epic farewell.

As you will see in the video, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 panel kicked off with a literal bang, as it became the first big movie of 2015 to make its way to the Hall H stage. A crew of drummers stormed the set, beating on their timpani drums. The musicians only grew in size, as they literally took over the giant convention hall. The tribal »

New "Batman v Superman" Trailer Tomorrow?

10 July 2015 8:26 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The second trailer for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has been officially rated by the Alberta Film Ratings board, indicating its release is imminent.

This doesn't come as a big surprise as the film scores a Comic Con panel tomorrow morning and it's expected the new preview, which runs two minutes and twenty-four seconds, will debut online shortly after and is also said to be airing during Conan O'Brien's broadcast from the convention.

Both with "Man of Steel" and "Mad Max: Fury Road," Warner Brothers premiered an extended five to ten minute trailer for Con attendees to their Hall H panel, and then followed that up by releasing a more regular length trailer online just hours later.

It's hoped the studio will show off a lot more in this trailer as the film's first teaser a few months ago was met with something of a mixed response. The »
