Last night on the Late Show, David Letterman made it a mission to figure out the cause for the lag in reuniting the Arrested Development cast. "It was, uh, nothing really exciting," Jason Bateman stuttered. "Money, huh?" Letterman interjected. "Um, yes, uhh, no, ahhh." "Who was the holdout?" "Will Arnett." Oh, Gob. Plus: Gillian Anderson, seated between two bearded gentlemen, Aziz Ansari and Jimmy Fallon, caused a bit of a quibblefest over the manliness of manscaping. Also, Tom Hanks, in his quest for a new theater, disrupted David Letterman's monologues over and over and over. As Hanks sees it, the Ed Sullivan theater will soon go the way of the Tonight Show. And finally, Craig Ferguson's zany comedy left Zach Galifianakis utterly defeated and speechless. Watch our compilation to see what you missed. »

Of course he did.
In the most recent installment of Zach Galifianakis' internet talk show "Between Two Ferns," the comedian asked weirdo superstar James Franco, "Of all the art projects you've done, what has made people roll their eyes the hardest?" And you know what? It was a fair question. Franco has a restless creative spirit that often compels him to do really annoying stuff, like a "mixed media piece" for the Stella Adler studio called "Collage" (it supposedly combined dance, theater, music and poetry), publishing a book of poorly received short stories and hosting the Oscars.
While his latest project might not be quite as obnoxious, it is similarly arty and bizarre. On Saturday he painted a mural dedicated to the co-stars of his new movie "This Is The End." Franco even chose a perfect location for his new piece, one synonymous with arty nonsense: some random wall in Brooklyn. »

NBC’s coming late-night shakeup affects three-fourths of the the network’s post-11:30 p.m. programming. (Enjoy stability while it lasts, Last Call with Carson Daly.) Saturday Night Live has to find a new Weekend Update anchor… because Seth Meyers is moving to host Late Night… because Jimmy Fallon is moving to host The Tonight Show… because Jay Leno is getting forced out, just three years after NBC reinstated him as Tonight’s host. Phew!
So while everyone else at the network is movin’ on up, what should Jay’s next move be?

Last night on the Late Show, Tom Hanks sang praises to steroids. Apparently, they cure the cold, and since the show (Lucky Guy) must go on, "You take a steroid." Besides, "the only repercussion is you will not be in the Hall of Fame, but you do get back on that horse, and you feel Great! [Evil laughter.]" Plus: Scary Ray Liotta and goofy Craig Ferguson didn't mesh well, and that interview produced a bunch of awkward silences. Also, Jennifer Love Hewitt pointed out the injustice between David Beckham's huge, bulging underwear ad — "I felt like he came at me in traffic" — and her own modified, boob-diminished Client List billboards; and Ken Jeong and Jimmy Fallon danced in sync with each other.

The two men were discussing a recent incident where an air conditioner unit at The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson began to leak, forcing staff to move part of the audience onto the stage where the band would typically play — if they had a band. Ferguson explained that that wasn’t a huge problem because they can’t afford a house band. Leno — who obviously has had »

Jay Leno had some choice words for rival CBS and its brass during his interview Wednesday with Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson – who was making his second appearance on The Tonight Show in less than two months. When the conversation swung to a recent incident when fellow late-nighter Ferguson’s studio got soaked by a faulty air conditioner unit, Leno took some jabs at the Eye network and singled out Les Moonves.

When Ryan Seacrest was on "The Late Late Show," Craig Ferguson wanted to know about that so-called feud between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey on "American Idol." When he asked if it was a real thing, Seacrest stammered for a moment, which was all the answer Ferguson needed.
"It is! It is a real thing!” he exclaimed.
Seacrest said, “I think when you’re on television in front of millions, there’s always the potential for tension.”
Ferguson then asked if it was comparable to Seacrest's on-stage bickering with original judge Simon Cowell. "It became sport, sort of the volleying back and forth," Seacrest responded. "We looked forward to keeping score, and afterwards we’d go and break bread and have dinner. But it would definitely be a competitive thing during the show when he was on.”
Wonder if the dueling divas break bread and have dinner?
Probably not, considering »

Last night on Chelsea Lately, Kat Dennings disclosed the proceedings of her "non-date," "hang-out" with Drake: First they got to know each other but just as "buds" over sushi (sorry, Drake); then his "security dudes" followed the two in a black SUV, which may not have worked in Drake's favor ("I was overwhelmed with the amount of security," a scurred Dennings told Chelsea), but might have also saved Kat's life. [Without it], "I feel like I would die. Some Twitter person is like watching my tweets to see where I'm going." Besides, yolo. Plus: Rod Stewart took a cold, hard grab at Jimmy Kimmel's butt, much to his surprise; and Isla Fisher didn't know what to make of Craig Ferguson or his gender-confused snake mug, but she giggled and blushed until Dr. Ferguson had to step in for a psychoanalysis.

Now that Ken Ehrlich has been named to exec produce the 65th annual Primetime Emmys for CBS, we can turn our attention to whom the host of the Sept. 22 event might be.
CBS revealed Friday that Ehrlich had been tapped for his sixth stint exec producing the Emmys, scheduled for the Nokia Theatre. Among other recent kudos under his watch were the 2012 Grammys, which drew 40 million viewers for CBS.
“Ken has been a great partner with CBS throughout the years on many specials,” CBS Entertainment exec veep of specials, music and live events Jack Sussman said. “The incredible ratings success of the Grammy Awards, particularly in recent years, demonstrates his talent for packaging industry celebrations into exciting live television events with tremendous energy and entertainment.”
Said Academy of Television Arts & Sciences chairman and CEO Bruce Rosenblum: “This is a landmark year in television excellence, and we are confident he will produce an extraordinary show. »

Zac Efron really is the next in line for the upper echelon of Hollywood men (Clooney, Pitt, McConaughey, Affleck), and the more interviews that he does, the more I begin to believe it. I mean, first of all, like, that face, and of course, second of all, that body, and just look how eloquent and poised he remains while skating over dodgy subjects like marijuana, dropping condoms on red carpets, idolizing Matthew McConaughey's body, and the copious amounts of shirtless activity in all his films. Only a true talent and class act can get through all of that without going crazy and ripping his shirt off, know what I mean?
But the moment I became undoubtedly convinced that Zac was destined for greatness comes rather early on in this interview, at around the 1:25 mark. Zac accidentally adopts Craig’s Scottish accent for a split second before quickly correcting himself, »

Last night on The Late Late Show, Kevin Bacon took the stage to remind Craig Ferguson and his audience of that one incident long ago of the host's accidental douchiness. It's sorta bittersweet, actually. Plus: Carol Burnett gave a very literal interpretation of the Chippendales dancers she will have (well, not really, but could you imagine?!) at her 80th birthday celebration on Friday; and Steve Martin, on tour with Edie Brickell and the Steep Canyon Rangers, played the banjo.

They're funny and passionate. One of them can even rock a pastel pantsuit. Hadley Freeman hails her female heroes whose accomplishments deserve some serious respect
These days, White is mainly known for two things: 1. Being old, and 2. Being funny about it. But there is so much more to her than geriatric self-mockery. Aside from her brilliant performances on The Golden Girls and The Mary Tyler Moore Show, White was one of the first women to take control of her own acting career by co-founding a TV production company in the 1950s. She was also nominated for the first best-actress Emmy in 1950, and her book about this period of her life, Here We Go Again: My Life in Television, is as funny as it is inspirational. Still sharp as a tack in her 10th decade, she is not only a hilarious actor but a hysterical off-the-cuff guest on American talk shows, »

Last night on The Daily Show, Christina Hendricks and Jon Stewart chatted about consequence — how Matt Weiner has spooled a karmic storyline from the "terrible" actions of these "terrible, terrible" men of Mad Men. "I like when an episode starts with Don just sort of hacking, waking up and just coughing, and coughing, and coughing," she told Stewart. "Yup, that'll do it!" Plus: Ever wonder why Ryan Lochte would do a reality show? "I just want to bring swimming into everyone's livingroom ... so bringing swimming awareness," Lochte expounded on The Late Show, at which point Dave Letterman cracked up, "Wow, that's pretty good!" Also, Kat Dennings and Craig Ferguson caught the other in his/her Game of Throne lies; and a dippy Diane Keaton giggled about seeing her long-time crush, Robert DeNiro go down on their new work colleague, Susan Sarandon, in The Big Wedding.

Stephen Colbert opened his first "Colbert Report" after the tragedy at the Boston Marathon with a heartfelt and funny tribute to the people of Boston, praising them for their resilience throughout the history of the city.
"Whoever did this obviously did not know about the people of Boston. Nothing these terrorists do is going to shake them," Colbert said. "For Pete's sake, Boston was founded by the Pilgrims, a people so tough, they had to buckle their goddamn hats on."
He also pointed to the Red Sox, the Big Dig and Aerosmith as Boston stalwarts that refuse to give up.
"Here's what these cowards really don't get," Colbert continued. "They attacked the Boston Marathon, an event celebrating people who run 26 miles on their day off until their nipples are raw -- for fun."
While we still don't know who is responsible for the explosions, Colbert echoed an optimistic sentiment that Patton Oswalt expressed. »

Late night hosts didn't shy away from addressing the Boston Marathon bombings, with Craig Ferguson asking bluntly, "Is anybody else sick of this s---?" Jimmy Kimmel and Boston's own Conan O'Brien also expressed their sorrow Monday, a night when Jay Leno, David Letterman, Jimmy Fallon, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert were all off. O'Brien, who grew up in Boston's neighboring Brookline and attended Harvard University across the Charles River in Cambridge, noted his close ties to the city. "Boston's my hometown. It's where I grew up. It's where my family lives. So I »

Mark Wahlberg, a born and bred Bostonian, commented on the attack at the Boston Marathon on April 15 that shocked the nation. He had been in New York to promote his new movie "Pain & Gain" at a screening, and admitted to reporters there that he hadn't wanted to attend.
"I really didn't even want to come tonight. I hadn't really heard much -- I spoke to my mom, and most of my family seems to be Ok," he said. "It's such a big event, there's so many people there. It's horrible man. It's disgusting, man. I just -- I'm very upset. ... You try to put everything in God's hands and whatever happens here is out of our control and there's a bigger picture. But it's still obviously upsetting."
In a separate interview with People, Wahlberg said, "Obviously I've got a huge family and so many family and friends back in Boston. »
In the wake of the tragic events in Boston yesterday, some people were ready to relax with their favorite late-night hosts and some were not. The hosts who aired new shows last night had the difficult task of trying to address the tragedy in a honest and passionate way while also trying to entertain people who just wanted a laugh. Conan O’Brien started his show by saying his ”thoughts and prayers” are with the people of Boston, his hometown. ”That said, it is our job to do a show. We’re gonna try to entertain you the very best we can, »

Mark Wahlberg was in a somber mood at the New York premiere of his new film, Pain and Gain — still grappling with the tragedy that struck his hometown in Boston.
Earlier Monday two bombs went off near the finish line at the Boston Marathon. Three people were killed and at least 140 were injured.
“I really didn’t even want to come tonight. I hadn’t really heard much — I spoke to my mom, and most of my family seems to be okay. It’s such a big event, there’s so many people there. It’s horrible man. It’s disgusting, »

The Boston Marathon bombing presented a difficult task for those whose job, as Jimmy Kimmel noted last night, is "to make you laugh" on a daily basis. Of the four late-night shows that aired new episodes last night, Kimmel, Conan O'Brien and Craig Ferguson opened their monologues with an honest moment expressing their compassion, and in Ferguson's case, uninhibited, profanity-ridden "rage." Here's how they dealt with the fact that they were doing comedy shows on such a tragic day.Inserting a smidgen of self-deprecation. All three hosts played on their innate inability to make people laugh. Providing personal references to the city. "Boston's my hometown. It's where I grew up. It's where my family lives," Conan noted. Segueing into the next topic with a timely joke. For Kimmel, that meant claiming each of his audience members as dependents on his tax return; for Ferguson, a hats off to the maturity »
