Jimmy Fallon’s Mishaps Magnified in Late-Night TV Fishbowl

25 August 2015 6:59 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A chipped tooth won’t derail NBC’s vaunted “Tonight Show,” but it has created plenty of chatter among people obsessed with the inner workings of late-night TV.

Since taking over “Tonight” in February 2014, Jimmy Fallon has proven himself to be dynamic, creative, hard-charging and largely impossible to defeat in the ratings. He has brought new energy to one of TV’s most durable formats by getting guests to play games, take part in skits and show off hidden talents. But he has also demonstrated a different quality: He’s prone to accidents.

Fallon late last week disclosed via Twitter and Instagram that he had inadvertently chipped a tooth trying to open a tube of medication for his finger. That finger was nearly lost in June when Fallon took a tumble at home and snagged the digit thanks to a ring getting caught on a piece of furniture, requiring emergency surgery. »

Virtually Impossible, Out of Tune: 6 of our favourite kids' TV shows that no-one remembers

14 August 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

When we found out last week that Gordon the Gopher and other childhood favourites were being revived for a special, we got so excited we dug out our Edd The Duck lunchbox and started reminiscing about our first loves: Andi Peters, Zoe Ball and Phillip Schofield.

But when we started to talk about some of our favourite kids' TV programmes, there were blank faces in the office. And in fact, when we've brought up these classics in the past, we've been met by general bafflement. So below, we present just 6 of our favourite kids' TV shows that no-one remembers... Do you?

1. Incredible Games (1994-1995) - Tom Eames, senior entertainment reporter

It only aired for two series from 1994 to 1995, but The Incredible Games was one of the cleverest kids' games shows ever, and no-one seems to remember it.

Essentially The Crystal Maze for kids, it was set in a fictional Tron-like skyscraper, »

James Corden Faces His Critics as TCA Host: "I Haven't Prepared at All"

7 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in the Aug. 14 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. To receive the magazine, click here to subscribe. James Corden has become pretty used to pressure after logging more than 60 viral-friendly episodes of his CBS late-night show since replacing Craig Ferguson in March. So he is ready to take the heat as emcee of the Television Critics Association Awards on Aug. 8 in Beverly Hills. Here, the British writer-actor-stage veteran, 36, reveals his (lack of) plans, his awards-show hosting heroes (paging Neil Patrick Harris!) and the TCA-nominated series he can't

Jon Stewart’s Farewell: ‘Daily Show’ Host Spotlights Staff, Not Self

6 August 2015 9:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The host of “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” used his last turn behind the desk to make the program a daily show about all the people who put the program together.

Jon Stewart didn’t use his final time on the landmark Comedy Central program to wallow in memories. There were no clips of past stunts, no skatey-eighth rerun of Stewart berating CNBC financial commentator James Cramer for the tone of that network’s coverage of finance. Instead, Stewart spent a good part of a 63-minute finale celebrating the comedians who contributed to the program over his 16 years at its helm and the writers and support staff behind the scenes.

In doing so, Stewart – who turned a light-hearted program ostensibly about delivering fake news into a very real, cultural touchstone for thousands of viewers four nights a week – flipped another format on its ear. TV’s biggest latenight finales »

Watch Stephen Colbert's New 'Late Show' Promos, Featuring Mitt Romney

3 August 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

David Letterman is irreplaceable, but Stephen Colbert is filling his shoes, and desk, as host of "The Late Show" starting September 8. CBS just started airing new "Late Show with Stephen Colbert" promos, with three brief spots appearing over the weekend.

Here are the new promos, including one with the real Mitt Romney and his pancake promise disappointment:

That was not the card we were thinking of, but totally agree that that's a sweet Trapper Keeper.

It'll be interesting to see how the late night world looks after this latest shift. There have already been a lot of changes this year. Craig Ferguson left "The Late Late Show" and James Corden stepped in, with his very Jimmy Fallon-like games and viral videos. David Letterman retired and now Stephen Colbert is ready to debut. And Jon Stewart is getting ready to leave on August 6, with Trevor Noah poised to take his »

16 Things on TV I Can't Be Bothered to Care About

24 July 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

I write about TV for a living, I watch a ton of TV, and I read a lot of news about TV, including a number of much-hyped stories that seem unavoidable all over the Internet. Yet even I can't bring myself to care about some of them. For instance:

1. The Taylor Swift/Nicki Minaj/Katy Perry MTV Vma Feud. Two years, five years, 10 years from now, no one else will care either, so let's stop caring now.

2. The VMAs themselves. The one day a year MTV pretends it still cares about music videos. Again, a year from now, will you remember who won any of these prizes?

3. The Jon-Snow-Is-Alive rumors. Either he is or isn't, but I'd rather just find out when I watch "Game of Thrones" next season and not endure nine months of speculation.

4. Wealthy White Senior Angeleno Dads Who Become Women. Jeffrey Tambor deserved an Emmy nod for "Transparent, »

CBS Moves Fast to Win New Ads for James Corden, Stephen Colbert

7 July 2015 7:20 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When Jimmy Kimmel launched his latenight show on ABC in 2003, he served his audience liquor and beer. In 2015, James Corden has done him one better: A miniature tavern is located directly on the set of CBS’ new “Late Late Show.”

Bottles of Rolling Rock, Beck’s, Michelob Ultra, Stella Artois and, no surprise, Bud Light and Budweiser adorn a four-seat “Bud Light Bar” seen on set every night during the program, which launched with Corden as host in March. On most nights, its presence is hard to miss. A neon Bud Light sign hangs above the bottles of suds and is easily spotted as the show comes back from a commercial. Sometimes, the bar serves as a backdrop for a sketch, as when Dana Carvey did an impression of Michael Caine or a segment called “Stage 56 Bar Tricks” that had one contestant jump rope while sitting on her rear end »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

TV Worth Watching

"7 Days in Hell" (Saturday on HBO at 10 p.m.)

Bless whoever came up with this random 45-minute mockumentary about an epic seven-day tennis match.

"The Spoils Before Dying" (Wednesday on IFC at 9 p.m.)

Are you ready for this three-night television event? Not possible! But it's coming anyway. "The Spoils Before Dying" is the comedy follow-up to "The Spoils of Babylon" miniseries. This spoof once again stars Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, Haley Joel Osment, Val Kilmer, Michael Sheen, Maya Rudolph and more, this time following a 1950s jazz pianist »

Why Seth Meyers Is the Late Night Successor to Letterman and Stewart

26 June 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Late Night TV landscape—much like the television landscape in general—is going through a pretty intense transformation at the moment. Come this August, the “oldest” regular program in late night will be Jimmy Kimmel Live, which launched in 2003. The Tonight Show Wars finally came to a close (again) in February 2014 when Jay Leno stepped down a second time, making way for Jimmy Fallon to take over the established franchise. And somewhat fittingly, David Letterman felt it was time to retire just over a year later, bringing Late Show with David Letterman to a close this past May. Letterman’s loss was the most striking, not only because Late Show paved the way for a new kind of comedy on late night television, but also Letterman’s interview skills/style was unrivaled. His somewhat prickly personality made for some of the most fascinating and entertaining interactions in all of television, »

In Latenight Emmy Race, Letterman’s Swan Song Aims for High Notes

17 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There’s been a remarkable consistency among variety series Emmy candidates, starting with Comedy Central’s powerhouse pair. Stephen Colbert’s “The Colbert Report” has enjoyed back-to-back wins, while Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show” took top honors in 2012 and the previous nine years.

They keep going up against HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” now at 10 consecutive nominations, and NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” in the mix through breakthrough and routine seasons alike.

Then there are the network Jimmys: NBC’s Fallon, cited in 2014 for “The Tonight Show” after two years for “Late Night,” and ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

All told, those same six comprise the lineup over the past three years. But 2015’s seismic latenight shifts, with a host of hosts having left or on their way out, could affect the Emmy battle as well.

First rumbles came from the TV Academy itself, which is instituting »

Stephen Mulhern wants to make a chatshow like James Corden's Late Late Show

10 June 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Stephen Mulhern has revealed that he's currently in talks about hosting a new chat show similar in style to the The Late Late Show with James Corden.

The TV presenter, who returns to our TV screens with a new run of Catchphrase this Sunday (June 14), told Digital Spy that the UK has no such equivalent and he would love to create funny skits with celebrity guests.

Corden took over from Craig Ferguson and has been a huge success with audiences across the pond, partly due to his original comedy sketches with game A-listers.

"We're actually in talks about doing a new show - sort of similar to the James Corden show in the Us, because ITV2 don't have anything like that," Mulhern explained.

"Because Britain's Got More Talent does so well, and we have such a laugh in it, the idea is to try do something like that over here. »
