Watch Jay Leno Return to 'Tonight Show' to Deliver Monologue

7 October 2015 6:29 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jimmy Fallon pulled a hamstring midway through The Tonight Show monologue Tuesday, but thankfully there was someone in the building who could serve as emergency substitute. Jay Leno returned to the show where he spent over 20 years as host to deliver a five-minute monologue of political humor.

"The election is getting nasty. Ralph Nader called Hillary a corporatist and a militarist. Isn't that incredible … Ralph Nader still alive," Leno joked. Leno also called a presidential showdown between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump the battle "between the Tortoise and the Bad Hair, »

It was Leno’s first appearance on The Tonight Show since stepping down as host in February 2014 and he seemed to relish the homecoming, cracking a string of really funny and exceptionally delivered jokes about the circus-like presidential race.

New Who Review: The Magician’s Apprentice / The Witch’s Familiar

29 September 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

“If someone who knew the future pointed out a child to you, and told you that that child would grow up totally evil, to be a ruthless dictator who would destroy millions of lives…could you then kill that child?”

It’s a classic philosophical question, one that the average person would never truly have to face. Of course, The Doctor is not the average person, and as such, has to face it nearly constantly.  But never so personally, and so literally as when a young boy calls for help…and The Doctor walks away.

The Magician’S Apprentice / The Witch’S Familiar

Written by Steven Moffat

Directed by Hettie MacDonald

The Doctor lands on a planet torn asunder by war, a war going on so long that it’s using progressively declining technology – space fighters are being shot at with bows and arrows. When a young boy is trapped in a mine field, »

James Corden's The Wrong Mans is definitely not coming back

24 September 2015 4:02 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

James Corden and Mathew Baynton's comedy crime capers in The Wrong Mans look to be over for good.

The BBC comedy drama has officially come to an end after two series, mainly due to Corden's busy schedule after taking over from Craig Ferguson as host of The Late Late Show.

Co-star and writer Baynton told Radio Times: "Even if we wanted to do more Wrong Mans, there wouldn't be an opportunity to.

"So I kind of see that as a good thing in a way because it means we can't be tempted into going back to it and possibly diluting it.

"As a concept it had two series and probably not much more as it starts to wear thin as a premise. Because we were proud of what we did, so we will both be moving on to other things."

Baynton also added that he isn't surprised about his friend's success in the Us, »

Doctor Who, Ep. 9.01, “The Magician’s Apprentice”

21 September 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Doctor Who, Season 9, Episode 1, “The Magician’s Apprentice”

Written by Steven Moffat

Directed by Hettie MacDonald

Airs Saturdays at 9pm (Et) on BBC America

After a nine month hiatus, Doctor Who comes roaring back with “The Magician’s Apprentice”, enticing new viewers with the stark visuals of its opening scene and grabbing perhaps skeptical long-term viewers with one word, “Davros”. Unfortunately, after a fantastic setup, the season nine premiere squanders the goodwill it’s built over much of the hour by falling prey to a tired, and long overdue to be retired, genre cliché: the series-breaking cliffhanger. This is nothing new for Doctor Who, which at various points in its 50+ year run has embraced the trope as a familiar and enjoyable structural element; The Doctor is constantly working his way into untenable situations just in time for, “To Be Continued” to pop up on-screen, then barely escaping in the opening moments of the next episode. »

‘Sabado Gigante,’ the World’s Longest-Running TV Variety Show, Says Adios

18 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jon Stewart, David Letterman, Craig Ferguson and Jay Leno have all left their long-running late-night perches. And now Mario Kreutzberger (known by his stage name Don Francisco), the Chilean-born creator and host of Univision’s Saturday night extravaganza “Sabado Gigante” (“Giant Saturday”), is signing off for the last time on Sept. 19 when the show’s record-breaking 53-year reign as the longest-running TV show in the world comes to an end.

The variety format show, which launched in Chile in 1962 before expanding Stateside, features a frenetic mix of contests, sing-alongs, and music acts, as well as other live entertainment. Details of its three-hour finale (the show’s standard run-time) are still under wraps but it will include highlights of past shows and a constellation of guests, among them celebrated Latin American recording artists Enrique Iglesias, Luis Fonsi, Paulina Rubio and Juanes.

Doctor Who

Michelle Gomez has revealed that she's willing to keep playing the villainous 'Missy' on "Doctor Who" for some time to come. Speaking with io9, she revealed:

"I am having so much fun with this character, probably a little too much fun. Occasionally in a career, you get one or two chances to just really enjoy your work and have it not feel like work—even though it is hard work. It's just a blessing. I'll play her as long as I can, as long as I'm standing. I'd play her in a wheelchair. I love Missy. She's great fun." The new season of "Doctor Who" returns this Saturday.

The Walking Dead

Xander Berkeley ("24") has reportedly been cast in a key recurring role in the second half of the upcoming sixth season of AMC's "The Walking Dead".

The character's name is being kept under wraps but is Not the »

Friends as a Horror Movie Is Actually Plausible? Curses, Gladys and Glynnis

11 September 2015 7:15 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Your Friends are dead. Ok, not really, but what if Friends was a horror movie? What if Chandler killed Monica? Ross became Red Ross? Janice was a stalker? Everything and everybody scared Phoebe? Your answers are in the video below. Everything can be creepy when you put it in black and white and put spooky music behind it. And they sure did a lot of screaming for a sitcom. And let's be real: Monica with the turkey on her head is pretty horrifying, but not as bad as Gladys and Glynnis because those pieces of "art" were pretty flippin' weird. Your favorite Friends have been getting together here and there recently. Lisa Kudrow appeared on Courteney Cox's Celebrity Name Game, hosted by Craig Ferguson. »

Review: Stephen Colbert tries to make his 'Late Show' seem new in debut

9 September 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

At the TCA panel to discuss his new job as host of "Late Show," Stephen Colbert didn't want to go into specific details about his plans for the show. At one point, I asked him directly if he was planning to use the same format — monologue, desk piece, guest, guest, musical guest, goodbye — that had been the familiar structure of the genre practically going back to its origins in the 1950s. "Well, that sounds boring," a smiling Colbert replied, to laughter from the assembled press and CBS employees. "So no. I'm going to go with no on boring." But when Colbert's "Late Show" finally debuted last night, that was almost exactly the format he wound up using. (Technically, there were two desk pieces between the monologue and the first guest.) So no, Colbert wasn't looking to reinvent the talk show wheel on his first night in the Ed Sullivan Theater. »

The 32 Greatest Talk-Show Hosts Ever, Ranked

8 September 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Out with David Letterman, Jon Stewart, Craig Ferguson, and Stephen Colbert. In with Trevor Noah, James Corden, Larry Wilmore, and Stephen Colbert. Lately, networks have been changing talk-show hosts faster than Zsa Zsa Gabor changed husbands. (That joke is our tribute to Johnny Carson.) The final piece falls into place tonight, when Colbert makes his CBS debut in Letterman’s old chair. After a long period of late-night firing, retiring, and hiring, it’s time to quantify the monologues and interviews, and crown the all-time kings (and a few queens) of talk. Our ranking includes some hosts who are entirely fictional, others who’ve expanded the job’s original boundaries through podcasting and satellite radio, and those who turned daytime TV into must-see entertainment. It does not, however, include John McEnroe, Magic Johnson, or Tony Danza; make no mistake, that was a conscious decision. 32. Jay Leno First he elbowed aside »
