Will Arnett, John Mayer Among the Many Men Asked to Guest-Host The Late Late Show

26 November 2014 11:11 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Will Arnett, Judd Apatow, John Mayer, Thomas Lennon, Wayne Brady, and The Big Bang Theory regular Kunal Nayyar are among the men who will take turns guest-hosting CBS’s The Late Late Show this winter during the two-month gap between Craig Ferguson’s departure and James Corden’s arrival as his replacement. And yes, at least as of now, they’re all dudes: The list of ten Late Late Show guest hosts announced by the Eye network Wednesday includes no women. That doesn’t mean there won’t be any female representation in CBS late night during the January 5 through March 6 Ferguson-Corden interregnum. Eye sources tell Vulture that there are still conversations going on with possible female guest hosts, and that several other women were approached about the gig (but couldn’t be booked). CBS will also air a late-night edition of its female-hosted daytime show The Talk in the »

Best of Late Night TV: Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow's 'Celebrity Curse Off,' Tim Allen's Turkey Scooter Race (Video)

24 November 2014 11:15 PM, PST | 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.

Jennifer Aniston was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Monday night to promote the new "Horrible Bosses" movie, but she also took some time for a "Friends" reunion with Lisa Kudrow via the foul-mouthed game, "Celebrity Curse Off." Lisa's face is great when she's cursing. So much intensity! It's kind of sweet that they both get upset about the b-word, considering what they're Ok with saying.

In her sit-down interview, Jen - who looked amazing - talked about the press tour for "Horrible Bosses 2," which sounds fun but also pretty tiring. She's afraid of flying, so she hasn't been to a lot of beautiful places in the world because she's too scared to fly. »

‘Into The Woods’ Sings Its Way Straight Into The Oscar Race

23 November 2014 12:42 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Dinsey unveiled another piece of the Oscar season puzzle Saturday night with an innovative bi-coastal screening of their big holiday release, the musical adaptation of Into The Woods, which screened simultaneously in New York City and at Disney Studios in Burbank (where I saw it).

Post-screening, a satellite-transmitted Q&A featured director Rob Marshall, screenwriter James Lapine and key cast members. Full disclosure:  I have been in love with this Stephen Sondheim masterpiece since even before it debuted on Broadway on Nov. 5, 1987.  Southern California native that I am, I trekked down to San Diego’s Old Globe Theatre in 1986 for its pre-Broadway tryout and instantly fell in love.

It’s not only one of my favorite Sondheim musicals (in the top three to be sure with Company and West Side Story), but high among the greatest theatrical experiences I have ever had. I have seen the show in various incarnations several times since. »

Metallica wrapped up their weeklong Late Late Show residency in fitting fashion Friday night as the metal gods churned out a sharp, pulverizing rendition of The Black Album's "Sad but True," a subtle reminder that both their week of top-notch performances on Craig Ferguson's late night program and the host's Late Late tenure were coming to an end.

Metallica kicked things off Monday night with "Hit the Lights," the first track the band ever recorded together. They followed that up Tuesday with the 1997 Reload cut "Fuel." Wednesday night brought »

Watch Metallica Douse 'Late Late Show' With Riff-Monster 'Fuel'

19 November 2014 6:42 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Metallica continued their week-long The Late Late Show residency on Tuesday with a blistering version of "Fuel," their Grammy-nominated single from 1997's ReLoad. James Hetfield delivered the pseudo-rapped intro ("Gimme fuel, gimme fire, gimme that which I desire") with his usual intensity, while Kirk Hammett handled the heavy lifting on the bluesy, accelerating riff. 

Craig Ferguson jokingly introduced the band as "a bunch of kids trying their luck in show business," emphasizing their good hygiene. The metal legends were promoting the 10th anniversary Blu-Ray edition of their band documentary Some Kind of Monster, »

Best of Late Night TV: Chris Hemsworth Revealed As Sexiest Man Alive, Stupid Pet Tricks (Video)

18 November 2014 10:50 PM, PST | 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.

Jimmy Kimmel got to reveal People's new Sexiest Man Alive Tuesday night, but first he made the studio audience guess. He is not in a band. He does not like to drive a Lincoln. (Not McConaughey.) He's not over 35. He has not been Sexiest Man Alive before. He is an actor. He is not single. He is only hairy on his head. He was not born in the USA. He has played a superhero in a movie. He has a famous sibling. His hero does use a hammer. They knew! It's Chris Hemsworth! Chris did his Skype interview from Australia, where it was about 12:30 p.m. the next day. »

Metallica goes old school for first night of Craig Ferguson residency

18 November 2014 1:36 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Metallica will be serenading exiting late night fixture Craig Ferguson all week, and they've decided to kick off their residency with an old chestnut dating back to the Reagan administration. For their first of five performances on "The Late Late Show" this week, James Hetfield and co. put the pedal to the metal with a slightly wobbly performance of the thrashy "Hit the Lights," from their killer 1983 debut album "Kill 'em All." Hetfield unfortunately doesn't have the voice he used to and Lars Ulrich's snare drum threatens to overpower the whole thing, but the half dozen or so Kirk Hammet solos make it all worth it. He's even playing a real horrorshow custom axe featuring Boris Karloff as "The Mummy." Watch the performance here: With a new album due sometime in 2015, Metallica will first release the 12-inch single "The Lords Of Summer" on November 28 for Record Store Day Black Friday. »

Will NBC proceed with its new Bill Cosby family comedy?

17 November 2014 9:44 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Will NBC proceed with its new Bill Cosby family comedy? The Peacock last July announced plans to bring Cosby back to primetime in summer or fall of 2015 as the patriarch of a new family sitcom. As Deadline reports, "That plan may have been derailed by the resurfaced rape accusations against the veteran comedian.” Plus: Comedian Hannibal Buress is responsible for the Bill Cosby rape story going viral, another woman is accusing Cosby of rape, and Whoopi Goldberg is skeptical of the Cosby rape accuser. Parents TV Council blasts FX for showing graphic “Sons of Anarchy” sex scene The conservative watchdog called the opening 2 1/2 minutes of last week’s episode "the most sexually explicit content the (organization) has ever documented on basic cable,” adding that such content should be reserved for pay cable like HBO or Showtime.
