Mila Kunis Shows Off Super Slim Post-Baby Bod, While Jaime King Flaunts Bump at Burberry Event

17 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

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. »

7 April 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

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 »

Great Scots: 25 Beloved Scottish TV and Movie Characters

3 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"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 »

Daily Show: now it's not all white on late night, but what about the women?

30 March 2015 2:03 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Trevor Noah named as Jon Stewart’s successor is Comedy Central’s latest stride toward racial diversity – so when will more women to join the party?

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.

Ratings: ‘Survivor’ Lifts CBS to Victory on First Post-‘Empire’ Wednesday

26 March 2015 9:34 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

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. »

Watch Tom Hanks Reenact His Filmography in 8 Minutes on The Late Late Show

24 March 2015 8:44 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

In case you’ve been sleeping under a rock, the entire late night TV landscape is currently undergoing a massive changeover. After David Letterman departs The Late Show this spring, and after Jon Stewart leaves The Daily Show later this year, we’ll have an almost entirely new late night TV lineup. One of the first big shifts took place last night with the debut of The Late Late Show with James Corden, as the Brit took over for Craig Ferguson, who departed the Letterman follow-up last fall. I haven’t had a chance to watch Corden’s debut just yet, but he made a few significant changes to how late night TV is done here in the States—namely bringing out all of his guests at once (a la The Graham Norton Show), dispensing with the fake microphone atop his desk, and also leaving the desk altogether to take part in the interviews. »

Watch: Tom Hanks & James Corden Recreate Every Tom Hanks Movie

24 March 2015 8:19 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

For those who didn't know, British comedy star James Corden (who you may recognize from Into the Woods or Begin Again) took over "The Late Late Show" from Craig Ferguson and his first official show was last night. It's quite a big responsibility, especially when you're following David Letterman (at least until Stephen Colbert takes over "The Late Show"), but Corden had quite a fun inaugural episode with American treasure Tom Hanks stopping by. Corden and Hanks teamed up to recreate every Tom Hanks movie from his decades of acting in under seven minutes. From Big to Cast Away to Captain Phillips. Watch it! Here's James Corden & Tom Hanks doing every Tom Hanks movie in seven minutes (via YouTube): You can't go wrong with some good clean fun with Tom Hanks. At first he seemed almost annoyed to be involved, but I think maybe it was just beginning with »

James Corden Beats Chris Rock, Joel McHale, Lena Dunham to Score ‘Late Late Show’ Golden Ticket (Video)

24 March 2015 7:53 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

James Corden finds himself in the world of pure imagination that is late-night television thanks to scoring a golden ticket placed in chocolate bars by Les Moonves and his Oompa Loompas. On Monday’s new “Late Late Show” debut, Corden shared a solid pre-taped sketch that explained how he landed the coveted gig, which was manned by Craig Ferguson for 10 years. Here’s how it went down: The CBS chief instructed the Willy Wonka characters to place the winning ticket in a “Late Late Show” chocolate bar.

Video of the Day: Watch James Corden and Tom Hanks recreate Hanks’ filmography

24 March 2015 7:16 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Last night saw the debut of James Corden as the newest Late Late Show host, as the British actor, who was last seen on the big screen in the 2014 musical Into The Woods, stepped in to take over from Craig Ferguson in the post-Letterman time slot, following Ferguson’s decision to step down from the role. Corden’s first guests included Jupiter Ascending‘s Mila Kunis and two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks.

Recreating Hanks’ filmography can be a challenge, as the performer has worked in a wide range of films over the years, from comedies such as Turner & Hooch to dramas such as Philadelphia, and even animated fare, such as the Toy Story films. Corden, however, took on that challenge last night, with Hanks in the studio to lend a helping hand. The resulting video, in which Corden dons the same wig to play everyone from Meg Ryan to Daryl Hannah, »

James Corden Ratings: CBS Premiere Up Vs. Craig Ferguson’s ‘Late Late Show’ Results

24 March 2015 6:41 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Update: In updated affiliate-based estimates from Nielsen, the premiere of “The Late Late Show with James Corden” averaged a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.66 million viewers overall — the largest “Late Late Show” audience on a Monday since November 2011 with Craig Ferguson as host.

Compared to the averages last fall with Ferguson, Monday’s “Late Late Show” was up 33% (0.1) in adults 18-49 and 13% (about 190,000) in total viewers. And versus the same night a year ago, “Late Late Show with James Corden” was even in the demo and up 22% in total viewers.


The James Corden latenight era began Monday on CBS, with the Brit bringing some new viewers to “The Late Late Show,” according to early returns.

More detailed viewership estimates will be released later today, but Nielsen estimates that the CBS latenight program averaged a 1.4 household rating/5 share in the 56 metered markets. This is a 27% improvement over the same night last »

Early Ratings: James Corden’s ‘Late Late Show’ Premiere Bests Season Average by 17 Percent

24 March 2015 6:38 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

James Corden‘s first “Late Late Show” received a 1.4 rating/5 share per overnight Nielsen numbers, which count the 56 metered markets. That rating is up 27 percent versus the same night last year (1.1/4), and up 17 percent over “The Late Late Show’s” season average. As expected, that number is down from former host Craig Ferguson‘s debut many years ago, when TV viewing habits were different. On Jan. 3, 2005, that version of the post-Letterman timeslot earned a 1.8/7. Corden’s kick-off also couldn’t compete with Seth Meyers‘ big year-ago debut on NBC in the same timeslot, a 2.6/9, which was boosted by »

James Corden’s ‘Late Late Show’ Debut Opens Ahead Of Seth Meyers In Households, Behind Craig Ferguson

24 March 2015 6:38 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

James Corden’s tenure as host of CBS’ The Late Late Show began last night with a metered market 1.4/5 – which CBS noted, is up 27% versus the same night last year (1.1/4). He beat NBC’s Seth Meyers (1.2/4); ABC’s Nightline clocked a 1.4/5 against the first half hour of Corden’s premiere. That said, Late Late Show’s previous host Craig Ferguson had opened on January 3, 2005, clocking a metered market rating of 1.6/6, which eventually translated to an average of 2.1 million… »

7 unexpected treats of James Corden's 'Late Late Show' debut

24 March 2015 2:56 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It is humanly impossible to be excited by the idea of a new talk show. When's the last time you sat through an entire talk show monologue? Was it recently? If so, then why? What did you hope to achieve by hearing three jokes about current events? Don't you understand that the internet will compile any worthwhile talk show clips for you in the morning? Come on. Grow up. Luckily, James Corden seemed very aware of boring talk show tropes during his "Late Late Show" debut and did his best to circumvent them. The Tony-winning actor served up a modest but promising first show with the help of guests Tom Hanks and Mila Kunis, who were brilliant and utterly boring (respectively). Kunis spent what seemed like a fortnight on Corden's couch discussing her jewelry designs. Almost bravely dull. To Corden's credit, there were practically no other lowlights to his debut. »

Best of Late Night TV: Tom Hanks and Mila Kunis Have Sex Talk; January Jones Plays Pie Golf (Video)

24 March 2015 12:05 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.

Monday night marked James Corden's debut as the new "Late Late Show" host, replacing Craig Ferguson. Tom Hanks and Mila Kunis were his first guests, and you can see they redesigned the set so they're all just sitting next to each other. Mila went on record to say she loved being pregnant and loves being a mom. Bold stance! James told a story where he thought he and his wife were being followed by paps but the photog was really shooting Ashton and Mila. The three of them talked about their kids, and Tom said he is the new face of "manspreading."

In the second video, James introduced himself and the band, »

James Corden's 'Late Late Show': Tim Goodman's First Impressions

23 March 2015 11:53 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

James Corden, the affable 36-year-old Englishman who has the endearing habit of telling people he’s from High Wycombe – and then saying that people in England don’t even know where that is – took over an American talk show last night and started the long, enviable task of making it his own. Yes, enviable. Like Craig Ferguson before him on CBS’s Late Late Show, there’s really not that much pressure on Corden in this early going to make that show a hit. Part of that is because it did well with Ferguson but was never in the zeitgeist, and

The Late Late Show With James Corden Premiere: Glad You Stayed Awake?

“I know what you’re thinking: Oh look, Andy Richter’s got his own show!” giggled James Corden, kicking off his stint as host of The Late Late Show in utterly self-deprecating fashion.

And throughout his mild-mannered opening monologue, the British comic repeatedly referenced his surprise at being chosen to succeed Craig Ferguson in CBS’ 12:37/11:37c weeknight slot and his belief that most Americans have no idea who he is.

TV Review: ‘The Late Late Show With James Corden’

23 March 2015 11:08 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

So David Letterman’s new lead-out? He learned everything he knows about hosting a talkshow from (drumroll, please) … Jay Leno? That was part of the amusing taped piece that kicked off CBS’ “Late Late Show With James Corden,” a slightly uneven premiere with moments of inspired lunacy and some clear areas for the newbie host to work on. Relatively unknown to a U.S. audience and a baby-faced 36, Corden oozed sincerity during his opening – he even teared up introducing his parents – and certainly looks eager to please. That said, he appeared more comfortable during planned bits than interacting with guests.

CBS deserves credit for taking a flyer on a promising if unorthodox choice for a timeslot that provides the latitude for doing just that. (The network even cashed in with an on-set Bud Light sponsorship, although someone should have perhaps consulted Jimmy Kimmel about the potential pitfalls of an in-studio bar. »
