Best of Late Night TV: Emma Stone's 'Box of Lies,' Pros and Cons of 'The Walking Dead' (Video)

15 October 2014 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.

Emma Stone -- always a great talk show guest -- was on "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night, and he made her play the classic game, "Box of Lies." Emma said she loves to lip sync, but she's a terrible liar. The audience screamed what number to pick for the first box. Their game was pretty darn short; they should've extended it. Jimmy also showed off some of Emma's old performance photos. The otter photo is really odd, but it's from her very first play. She also talked about her very first musical.

"The Tonight Show" also shared a video on the "Pros and Cons of Watching The Walking Dead. »

Britain's Got Talent Star Has His Story Told in One Chance

7 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Underdog achievement stories, from Breaking Away to Rudy and Kung Fu Panda, are practically defined by the multitude of voices telling the hero that he's not good enough. Such was the real-life case of Paul Potts, the Welsh opera singer with a blue-collar background who blew away the judges of Britain's Got Talent in 2007. In David Frankel's One Chance, Paul is played by James Corden, the comic charmer who portrayed Craig Owens in two funny Doctor Who episodes, now set to take over Craig Ferguson's late-night spot on CBS. The film shoehorns Potts's life story into a familiar underdog template, populating the world with near-mythological threshold guardians who exist to assure the hero that he isn't good enough, including his dad, his teachers, »

Film Review: ‘The Hero of Color City’

2 October 2014 3:57 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cheerfully exhorting imagination, creativity and bravery in children while demonstrating none of those virtues itself, “The Hero of Color City” proves to be a dispiritingly colorless feature-length babysitter. A tale of talking crayons embarking on an adventure of self-actualization in their native land of Color City, the cheaply animated pic plays as if someone pitched the idea “‘Toy Story’ … with crayons!” and decided no further development was needed. Embracing a day-and-date release strategy rarely utilized for kidpics, Magnolia Pictures clearly hopes to cash in on parents too tired or distracted to fully research their home-entertainment options. Nevertheless, returns should be minimal and word of mouth nonexistent.

Lacking any of the visual sophistication customary in contemporary bigscreen toons, “The Hero of Color City” more closely resembles the by-the-numbers smallscreen product churned out overseas to fill time on countless tyke-oriented cable channels. The youngest members of the film’s target audience aren »

29 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Hosting a late night talk show was never a career goal for Craig Ferguson. As the comedian prepares to exit The Late Late Show in December, Ferguson, 52, tells People he held the gig a lot longer than he expected - and never held out hope that he would replace David Letterman. "I didn't want it," said Ferguson. "I know it is very hard to get people to believe it. It was never my inclination. I never wanted to be a late night host. I did it because it was fun, entertaining and engaging."Ferguson's already preparing for a new chapter in his life. »

Latenight Ratings: NBC’s Fallon, Meyers Easy Winners for Q3; ABC’s Kimmel, ‘Nightline’ Up

25 September 2014 2:58 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Tonight Show Starrring Jimmy Fallon” continues to generate strong year-over-year ratings gains for NBC, teaming with “Late Night with Seth Meyers” as the net dominated latenight in the third quarter.

Meanwhile, ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “Nightline” were both on the rise, but young-adult auds turned away from CBS’ lame-duck latenight duo of “Late Show With David Letterman” and “Late, Late Show With Craig Ferguson.”

According to Nielsen estimates for the period of June 30-Sept. 21, NBC’s “Tonight Show” ruled the 11:35 p.m. hour with an average nightly audience of 3.93 million viewers, including 1.49 million adults 18-49. It was up vs. the Jay Leno-hosted “Tonight” of a year ago by 41% in the demo and 13% in overall audience.

ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” ran second in both categories, rising 2% in adults 18-49 (to 727,000) and 11% in total viewers (to 2.34 million). This is the most-watched Q3 ever for Kimmel, whose »

ABC’s ‘Nightline’ Sees New Life After Midnight, Takes Aim at Vice Media Demo

24 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Wee-hours TV can be pretty predictable. You’ve got umpteen reruns, a handful of old movies, a lot of direct-response ads and Craig Ferguson on CBS and Seth Meyers on NBC. Over at ABC, you never know what you’re going to get.

One night, Mariana Van Zeller, a regular correspondent for Fusion, is hiking through the Peruvian Amazon with Brazilian authorities on the hunt for cocaine-processing labs and on another, “Good Morning America” anchor Amy Robach is mixing it up with Taylor Swift. On another evening, viewers might watch an investigation of an elite squad of fire investigators who may be corrupt.

Welcome to “Nightline,” the news program that sees new life for itself despite having taken some serious gut-punches over the years. The venerable newsmagazine is carving out new digital space for itself that could have it vying with emerging news outlets like Vice for younger viewers and »

Best of Late Night TV: Kerry Washington's 'Box of Lies,' Denzel Washington and Lenny Kravitz's Boat Trip (Video)

24 September 2014 12:22 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.

"Scandal" star Kerry Washington and Jimmy Fallon tried to trick each other in a fun game called "Box of Lies." Weirdly enough, the line "In my box ... is a pumpkin with spaghetti in it..." was actually true! Also, it turns out Kerry is a big "Game of Thrones" fan. She started watching because her parents like it. She was planning to just make fun of them, but now she's a true GoT fan, and she even cooked her mom a GoT-themed dinner. Then some guy in the audience booed Jimmy because he's not caught up on the show.

At the end of the second video, Kerry shared a teaser »

Craig Ferguson On Ditching Conventions and Having Fun on ‘Celebrity Name Game’

22 September 2014 3:55 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Though his tenure on “The Late Late Show” may be drawing to a close, Craig Ferguson won’t be idle: He’s looking forward to his new gig as host of the new syndie game show “Celebrity Name Game.”

Known for his atypical, non-formulaic approach to his after-midnight talker, Ferguson told journalists in a telephone press conference that he’s taking a similar approach to “Name Game,” and isn’t sticking to any established format or canned atmosphere.

“I felt that when we were most successful in the late-night show, it was lovingly trashing the conventions of it,” he said, A big draw of “Name Game,” he said, was its simplicity and openness to allow “enough breathing room and enough room for me to kind of experiment and grow inside of it.”

Ferguson has been on-board the show since 2011, where it was originally designed as an hour-long for CBS from »

'Celebrity Name Game' Contestant Forgets Host's Name

22 September 2014 10:37 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Craig Ferguson, by this time, is a very recognizable celebrity. He's been on CBS for ten damn years. He's even more recognizable if he's standing in front of you and saying, "Hi, I'm Craig Ferguson." But that didn't stop one question on the new Ferguson-hosted game show "Celebrity Name Game" from forgetting his name entirely. "Celebrity Name Game" looks like "$25,000 Pyramid" with only celebrity answers. And I'm fine with that! Check out one unlucky contestant who can't figure out the name of the man standing in front of her. "Celebrity Name Game" premieres tonight on CBS. »

Craig Ferguson Names His Worst Guest Ever

19 September 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Andy Cohen's "Plead the Fifth" game on "Watch What Happens Live!" is pretty ingenious. Celebrities who are normally guarded throw their hands in the air and say, "Well! The rules say I have to be honest!" and just go with it. On the late-night Bravo show, Craig Ferguson opened up about his talk show (which will soon be hosted by Tony winner James Corden) and selected the worst guest he's ever had. All I can say is I believe it. I can't think of a single occasion when that woman has ever not seemed antisocial. Yes, that's a double negative and I don't care if it hurts you. And hey, look! That's our queen of award season Jessica Chastain. The time is now to avenge that ridiculous "Zero Dark Thirty" Oscar snub.   (Via Splitsider) »

Celebrity Name Game With Craig Ferguson Preview And Interview

18 September 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

If you aren’t completely up on everything come your way with the new season, one of the things that might have slipped past you is Celebrity Name Game, and it’s one that you want to make sure you don’t miss. Craig Ferguson moves on from his late night show to a game show, which isn’t exactly the switch you might have expected from him, and it’s going to be a lot of fun.

It isn’t like any other game show you’ve seen before, and that’s exactly the way Craig wants it. In fact, to listen to him tell it, he’d be happiest if it progressively gets less and less like a game show as it goes.

Check out the preview above, and then take in the interview below.

You’ll have to check your local listings, but it starts on Monday, »

California Governor Signs Expansion of State Film and TV Tax Credit

18 September 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A bill that more than triples the size of California’s film and TV tax credit is now law, as Gov. Jerry Brown on Thursday signed the legislation designed to stem the tide of runaway production fleeing to other states and countries.

“Yes, it’s taxpayers money, but it’s taxpayers money to build good jobs for the future,” Brown said at a ceremony at Tcl Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, where he was joined by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti; the bill’s principal co-authors, Assemblymen Raul Bocanegra and Mike Gatto; and a bevy of other lawmakers and industry officials who filled the forecourt of the landmark theater.

Garcetti predicted that the expanded credit would mean that 10,000 jobs would return to the Los Angeles region next year. He said that the legislation will “level the playing field” with other states offering credits.

Dozens of crew and union members attended, as »
