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. »

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.

Late Night's Unfinished Revolution, from Corden to Fallon

24 March 2015 2:08 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

With a tip of the cap from David Letterman, James Corden made his debut on "The Late Late Show" (CBS) Monday, notching another transformation in the face of late night. For audiences and networks inured to hosting stints measured in decades, the five years since NBC's abortive "Tonight Show" transition from Jay Leno to Conan O'Brien have been a time of unprecedented tumult, and 2014-2015 is sure to be remembered as the period of most rapid change. But efforts to increase the diversity of voices and update moribund formats for an age of viral videos have yet to return the genre to its glory days as the culture's bedtime listening post. Though the landscape continues to evolve, the revolution in late night remains unfinished.  Since early 2014, when Leno finally relinquished "The Tonight Show" to Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers assumed Fallon's position as the host of "Late Night," the changing »

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!

20 March 2015 12:38 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

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 »

18 March 2015 4:56 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Zachary Quinto has credited the late Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy with being instrumental in shaping his adult life.

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."

Zachary Quinto inherited Leonard Nimoy's role as Spock in the Star Trek franchise, but he took a lot more from the elder actor than some prosthetic ears.

Andy Samberg will host the 2015 Emmy Awards

12 March 2015 2:38 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fox, the only network without a late-night presence to pimp in the telecast, has tapped one of its primetime regulars to host the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 20, 2015. The network announced on Thursday (March 12) that "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star Andy Samberg will host the 2015 Emmy Awards. While the other networks have often used the Emmys telecast to position late-night favorites like Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien for primetime audiences, Fox has given the gig to Jane Lynch and Ryan Seacrest in recent years. Samberg seems excited, at least insofar as one can convey excitement in a press release. "Buckle your seat belts, Emmy viewers!," Samberg blurbs. "Like, in general you should buckle your seat belts in your car. In fact, even if you’re not an Emmy viewer, you should buckle your seat belt. It can be dangerous on the road. Also, if you’re not an Emmy viewer, »

Best of Late Night TV: New Bachelorettes Britt and Kaitlyn Dump Jimmy Kimmel, Kevin Spacey Does Impressions (Video)

10 March 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.

On Monday night, ABC revealed that "The Bachelorette" will have two rosemistresses for the first time in the show's history. (There were two Bachelors at one time, on Byron Velvick's season, and the women of the house voted early on to pick one to stay.) Jimmy Kimmel sat down with the two new bachelorettes: Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson. Jimmy grilled them on what will happen (they're not sure of the details yet), and what happens if they like the same guy. Jimmy also had them practice dumping a guy. Love when Kaitlyn dumped Jimmy for Guillermo, and Britt pulled the Matt Damon card on Jimmy and slapped him. »

'The Simpsons' Co-Creator Sam Simon Dies at 59

9 March 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Sam Simon, a comedy writer and producer who co-developed groundbreaking animated sitcom "The Simpsons," has died after a long battle with colon cancer. He was 59.

Among his many career highlights, Simon "served as the showrunner on the sitcom 'Taxi' at the age of 23; wrote for and produced the comedies 'Cheers' and 'The Drew Carey Show'; and created a Fox series for the legendary stand-up comic George Carlin in the mid-1990s," according to The Hollywood Reporter. He most recently worked as a consultant on Charlie Sheen series "Anger Management."

But Simon was best-known for helping shepherd the creation of "The Simpsons," alongside Matt Groening and James L. Brooks. The trio worked together on "The Tracey Ullman Show," on which Bart and co. first got their start, later giving the Simpsons family its own Fox series in 1989.

"The Simpsons" is now the longest-running primetime series in television history. »

Samantha Bee leaving ‘The Daily Show’ for TBS talk show

6 March 2015 1:46 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In the latest of the departures from Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, Samantha Bee, the show’s longest serving regular “correspondent”, is starting her own show on TBS, Deadline reports.

Bee’s husband and fellow former Daily Show correspondent Jason Jones is also signed on at TBS for a family sitcom that he co-wrote and will executive produce. But unlike Jones’s scripted comedy, Bee will be hosting her own show, possibly in a late-night time slot.

Not much specifically is known yet about either Bee’s show or Jones’s sitcom. We wait with baited breath to learn if the new show will in fact be called Samantha Bee’s Lady Bits, because it really seems like the best title. Bee and Jones join Conan O’Brien as part of the TBS “funny” lineup, and with a comedy troupe like that, we can only hope that many inter-show hijinks ensue. »

When Adam Sandler was fired from Saturday Night Live in 1995 he handled it like a gentleman with grace and dignity. He didn't freak out or get angry, he just went off and moved on to bigger and better things, but still would stop by other NBC shows when asked. "You were so nice about it," Conan O'Brien told him during Thursday's episode of Conan. "You would come on and do my show in the early early days when hardly anybody else would do the show, but it was maybe strange with you and NBC at the time." Cue Sandler's explanation of why he continued to appear on Conan's former show, Late Night, despite having been fired! Although he loved working with the redheaded host, he did admit »

Adam Sandler Shares Classic Chris Farley, Michael Keaton 'SNL' Stories

6 March 2015 7:50 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

A 23-year-old Adam Sandler was hired for Saturday Night Live in 1990, joining an already-iconic group of performers like Dana Carvey, Phil Hartman, Mike Myers, Chris Rock and Chris Farley. That season's writing staff is now equally revered, including legends like Robert Smigel, Bob Odenkirk and Conan O'Brien. During Thursday night's episode of Conan, Sandler and O'Brien reminisced about their mutual SNL era, when the writers would take out that week's host to dinner. Sandler shared two hilarious stories: one involving the quick comedic timing of Batman star Michael Keaton, the other Farley's infamously massive appetite. »
