Update: In preliminary national estimates, the final broadcast of “The Late Show with David Letterman” drew 13.76 million viewers for the show’s largest audience since February 1994. Only two post-Olympics episodes that month (during the Nancy Kerrigan-Tonya Harding saga) and the show’s August 2003 premiere (15.205 million) drew larger audiences.
In adults 18-49, the show’s 3.1 rating is the highest since the night in December 2005 that Oprah Winfrey appeared.
Millions of fans who enjoyed the latenight antics of David Letterman over the years returned Wednesday night as the iconic host signed off following a 33-year run.
Nielsen won’t issue total-viewer estimates until later today, but early indications are that the show drew its largest audience in more than nine years. In Nielsen’s metered-market overnights, Wednesday’s »

Oh, a segment dedicated to the times he’s blown stuff up: ok
Is there something else? …
I’ve got to admit: he’s been clever here. The jokes weren’t the sharpest at the start but he’s really let the show do the talking all night, dropping in clips that really communicate how much a part of Us »

Tiger Cop is a fine example of the classic 1980’s Chinese Martial Art genre. If you are fans of Yukari Oshima, Moon Lee and Cynthia Rothrock then this right up your street. Tiger Cop is two sets of extravagant trailers which pays homage to them movies and stars which brought us hard-hitting fight scenes over the years.
Maria Tran plays the new inspector on the force and right away she gets into trouble when introduced to her new partner. It’s a very well choreographed fight scene showcasing Maria’s hand to hand combat, the art of blocking and some very nice kicks. Maria really mixes it up, when watching the fights it takes me back to watching movies such as Angels, Outlaw brothers, Yes Madam and more. »
CBS’ “The Late Show with David Letterman” is carrying some ratings momentum into tonight’s finale, with Monday and Tuesday’s hours drawing some of the show’s best numbers in years.
Last night’s penultimate telecast, with guests Bill Murray and Bob Dylan, averaged a 4.9 household rating/12 share in Nielsen’s metered-market overnights — the show’s top rating since September 2009. It was up 48% from last Tuesday (3.3/9) and more than double the year-ago score (2.0/5).
And on Monday of this week, “Late Show with David Letterman” did a 4.1/11 in the overnights, a 37% improvement over last week (3.0/8), a 78% surge over last year (2.3/6).
On both nights, “Late Show” was No. 1 among latenight talkshows in the overnight household ratings, though NBC’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” held a slight edge among adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with Local People Meters.
As expected, the final nights of Letterman on CBS have helped boost recent latenight addition James Corden. »

With his off-kilter sensibility (Stupid Pet Tricks?) and his penchant for the oddball (what other host runs across the stage in silhouette before starting a show, or strikes up a telephone relationship with a woman who works in an office across the street?), David Letterman has left everyone who enjoys latenight television in stitches. Now, he’s about to leave them in splinters.
When Letterman signs off CBS’ “Late Show”for the last time early Thursday morning, he will deprive TV of its last direct link to Johnny Carson and an era when just one, then two, hosts could dominate the period. The arrivals of Jimmy Kimmel at ABC, then Jimmy Fallon at NBC, and, soon, Stephen Colbert at CBS have given rise to talk of a third generation of late-night talent (if Carson, not Jack Paar or Steve Allen, is to be seen as the root of this particular »

Though his Late Late Show is treading water in the ratings, the British host has scored on the web with a number of viral hits and been nominated for an award
The thing about getting a late-night talkshow on a major network is that it’s sort of like a supreme court appointment: once you’re in, you’re in for life, even if things are going badly and those that put you in power are having second thoughts about their nomination. Though the British James Corden was an unorthodox choice for CBS when they needed a host to fill Craig Ferguson’s chair when he departed last year, the gamble has largely paid off – even if ratings are somewhat flat.
When the show kicked off six weeks ago on 23 March, the ratings were higher than usual, averaging about 1.5 million viewers, just slightly above NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, »

Back when Into the Woods star James Corden had his debut episode taking over The Late Late Show from Craig Ferguson, he had Tom Hanks help kick things off with a bang by acting out the Oscar-winner’s entire filmography in less than seven minutes. It was quite the amusing bit, and now Corden is back […]

Big winners! Soap stars and talk show hosts hit Burbank, Calif., on Sunday, April 26, for the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards. Celebs including Craig Ferguson, Aisha Tyler, and Marie Osmond walked the red carpet outside of Warner Bros. Studios for the Tyra Banks-hosted show, and took the stage to present and accept awards. CBS' The Young and the Restless was one of the big winners of the night, tying Days of Our Lives for Outstanding Drama Series, and going on to win Outstanding Younger Actress in a [...] »
Between host Tyra Banks rapping, Craig Ferguson making fun of Sharon Osbourne for being “liquored up” and Betty White imitating Charo, Sunday’s 42nd annual Daytime Emmy Awards were a wild ride for fans of daytime television.
Backstage, a parade of enthusiastic winners provided just as much entertainment.
Ferguson took home the game show host win for his syndicated “Celebrity Name Game” series. When asked what fuels his success, his self-deprecating side took over: “I think I’m a panicky person that seeks approval,” Ferguson said.
He added that he was grateful for the award, which he took as a vote of confidence in his future after signing off from CBS’ “Late Late Show” in December. “There comes a point where you have to move on and do something else, and that’s why I’m so excited about getting this,” he said. “It makes me feel encouraged. There may be a future for me, »

Motherhood looks good on Mila Kunis! The "Jupiter Ascending" star has bounced right back since welcoming baby Wyatt late last year, and she put her hot post-baby bod on display at the Burberry "London in Los Angeles" event at the Griffith Observatory on Thursday night. Sporting slim blue pants and a white silk button-down, the actress flaunted her tiny waist as she posed for pictures at the star-studded soiree. She completed her ensemble with nude pumps, a side-swept 'do and a bronze smokey eye. Ashton Kutcher's other half recently joked about about her post-baby weight loss while chatting with Craig Ferguson. "Breastfeeding's a great workout! Let me tell you!" the brunette beauty explained. "I seem to eat a lot, so that kind of keeps me going through the day. [It's] not too bad. I do love to eat healthy." Kunis wasn't the only celeb to show their support for the famed fashion house last night. »

Think blue! Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher attended Opening Day at the Los Angeles Dodgers' stadium to see the boys in blue play the San Diego Padres on Monday. The proud new parents looked like they were having a ton of fun at the game too, and Ashton even shared a few fun selfies via Facebook from their seats. "Love winning on opening day. Go Dodgers!," Kutcher captioned the sweet pic of him and Mila. The "Two and a Half Men" star also posted a second shot of him and Kunis photo bombing a few pals while at the game. "Photo bomb!!!!," the "That '70s Show" alum captioned the candid snap. We love that Mila and Ashton still make time for fun, especially now that they have a newborn to look after! The former costars welcomed their first child together, Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher, in October and both stars having been »

"Outlander" can't come back soon enough. The time-traveling Starz historical romance returns on April 4, just in time to remind us of how much we've been missing all things Scottish. With the six-month mid-season hiatus (not to mention the retirement from late-night of Craig Ferguson in December), TV has been a tartan-free zone for too long.
Like protagonist Claire (Caitriona Balfe), a stranger to both Scotland and to the 18th Century, "Outlander" viewers can learn a lot about the Scots -- the complex feudal politics of the old clan system, the rural folkways, and the age-old pagan legends. Is it all accurate? Probably not, but then, movie and TV audiences have spend decades watching portrayals of the Scottish that are little more than collections of stereotypes.
Still, among the kilts and bagpipes and rolled Rs, some Scottish characters have transcended stereotype -- or at least played with it in a humorous »

Weeks of speculation around the identity of Jon Stewart’s successor on Comedy Central’s the Daily Show came to a surprising end Monday with the remarkable appointment of 31-year-old, biracial South African stand-up comedian Trevor Noah: the first non-white, non-American to fill the role. The precise direction in which Noah will take the show remains, of course, to be seen. But from his three appearances on the show to date – in which he has riffed on his outsider status to critique myopic American attitudes to international affairs (including a lack of understanding of Africa, and Boko Haram’s motivations) – it’s clear that he’ll bring a fresh perspective from which to satirise domestic and world events.

The main highlight of the new entries is the presence of the FX series Justified.

Yost will also be on hand to discuss the show Boomtown, which he also created, and which will be part of a panel titled “Cancelled Too Soon”.

The first Wednesday of the year without Fox’s dominant “Empire” didn’t seem to free up viewers of other shows, as ABC’s “Modern Family” and NBC’s “Law & Order: Svu” matched their lowest scores of the season. The combo of “Survivor” and “Criminal Minds” lifted CBS to victory, though the jury remains out on the net’s 10 p.m. newcomer “CSI: Cyber,” which was edged out in the young-adults demo by NBC’s “Chicago Pd.”
Fox’s “American Idol,” meanwhile, seemed to miss skedmate “Empire,” as its first Wednesday installment of the season without the drama airing behind it delivered easily the show’s lowest scores on the night this season.
Of note in latenight, meanwhile, it was more of the same in the early going of “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” with the CBS newcomer faring better than NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers” in households (1.2 rating vs. »
