Stephen Colbert’s ‘Late Show’ Develops a Taste for Bud Light

20 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When Jimmy Kimmel launched his late-night show on ABC, he came up with a novel enticement for the audience – free beer. Now that Steven Colbert is carving out a place for himself in the wee hours on CBS, he is stretching the concept by giving free ads to a big beer advertiser.

In recent months, Colbert has on at least two occasions granted prominent placement to Anheuser Busch InBev’s well-known brew Bud Light during CBS’ “Late Show.” Earlier this week, Colbert opened a broadcast that ran after the presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump with a segment that involved an animated version of Abraham Lincoln. Two bottles of Bud Light, their labels turned away slightly from the camera, could be easily spotted on screen. Later, the cartoon President quaffed beer from an animated Bud Light bottle. In July, during a live broadcast slated to coincide with the Republican National Convention, Colbert »

Jeffrey Katzenberg Exits the Stage With ‘Trolls’ and ‘The Boss Baby’ Still to Be Released

23 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For most of his career, Jeffrey Katzenberg has been a passionate and ferocious advocate of animation. His collaboration with the gifted artists yielded classics such as “Shrek” and “How to Train Your Dragon.” Both franchises reflect Katzenberg’s optimism and sense of wonder.

And now, as he moves on from DreamWorks Animation, his legacy at the studio he built will close with two films coming out over the next six months: “Trolls” and “Boss Baby.”

Set for a Nov. 4 release, “Trolls” is staged as a kind of pop-culture dance party that harks back to the vivid legacy of toys on which it’s based — including their bright colors and signature hair “The trolls in this film are like Gummy Bears that had been flocked in velvet,” says co-helmer Mike Mitchell. “In a way we wanted the trolls to be everything that the computer is not — organic and textured.”

Kelly Ripa’s Guest Co-Hosts Ranked by TV Ratings: From Kimmel to Josh Gad (Photos)

27 September 2016 10:13 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“Live!” has had 34 different guest co-hosts across 64 episodes since Michael Strahan bailed on Kelly Ripa — Here’s how those syndicated TV Ratings stack up so far, per Nielsen. Strahan announced in the spring that he would leave “Live!” for “Good Morning America,” and since then lots of celebrities, from Fred Savage to Jimmy Kimmel, have filled in. Some are obviously not available — Kimmel has a late-night show — but others could potentially become Ripa’s new co-host. The question is, who? Here are some of the co-hosts who have joined Ripa, listed by dates they guested on “Live.” Date: May »

Undecided Voters React to Debate... Before They've Actually Watched It

27 September 2016 5:45 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If the outcome of the 2016 election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton comes down to these undecided voters, then prepare to be very, very scared.

No matter which way you lean politically, there’s reason to be worried following Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, which polled undecided voters on who they thought won the first presidential debate hours before it even took place.

Jimmy Kimmel’s Emmy Blooper Reel Reveals Jeb Bush Flubs

20 September 2016 5:28 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jimmy Kimmel’s show open at Sunday’s Emmy Awards included a surprise appearance by Jeb Bush. The former Gop presidential candidate was the only non-actor cameo in the pre-taped piece, and it showed. Bush flubbed many lines but appeared to have a great time, cracking himself up a few times.

Check out the hilarious blooper reel below, which includes prop issues that plagued the casts of “Veep” and “Modern Family,” and even Kimmel himself.

 

In the open that actually aired, Bush and Kimmel set the tone for the show with this funny exchange:

“Are you nominated?” Bush asked Kimmel, who was seeking a ride downtown to the Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony.

“I am, yeah,” the host replied.

“Wow, what’s that like?” the former governor asked.

“It’s nice,” Kimmel replied.

When asked if he could win, Kimmel answered, “Well, there’s a lot of competition. Probably not.” (Editors note: He didn’t).

Bush responded, “Here »

Jimmy Fallon Gives Hillary Clinton Literal Softballs on ‘The Tonight Show’

20 September 2016 7:39 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The funny thing about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” is that although it ran on the schedule a few full news days after Fallon’s frustratingly lightweight interview of Gop nominee Donald Trump, it was in fact taped the very next day and held in reserve until last night. The window of time suggested that perhaps Fallon and “The Tonight Show” would be at least pondering the vocal outcry to last Thursday night’s episode — in which Fallon, in a moment for the history books, tousled Donald Trump’s hair. But in taping, it had just been a few short hours since the conversation about Trump’s appearance on “The Tonight Show” had begun. (Which, no wonder: Fallon was in Los Angeles this weekend, making an appearance at the Emmy Awards.)

As a result, while it feels like the news cycle has lived, died »

Emmys 2016: The Best and Worst Moments, from Great Speeches to ‘Stranger Things’

19 September 2016 2:36 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards didn’t lure in a larger audience than last year’s record-low viewership number. In fact, the ABC telecast dipped even further. Despite peak TV producing more great television than ever before, viewers haven’t been warming to the Emmys. Blame “too much TV” or a confusing September air date, but even though TV’s biggest night hasn’t been pulling in the same stats as yesteryear, the actual production has been, well, peaking.

Last Week’S Episode: ‘Star Trek’: Will There Ever Be Another TV Show Like It?

Jimmy Kimmel did a fine job with his monologue. The speeches were on point, and there were plenty of surprise winners to keep everyone in the Microsoft Theater and watching at home on the edge of their seats. These key elements make up the foundation of any great awards show, making the 2016 Emmys a ceremony to remember. »

Jimmy Kimmel Producers Reveal Emmy Show Secrets — And What You Didn’t Get to See

19 September 2016 2:12 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Just hours after they wrapped work on this year’s Emmys, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” head writers Molly McNearney and Danny Ricker were already back at the office, crafting tonight’s regular show.

“We’re very tired,” McNearney told IndieWire on Monday morning. “We had material due at 8:30 this morning, for tonight’s monologue. We were still at the party at 3:30 in the morning. I kept looking at my phone going, “All right, material is due in five hours… Ok, now it’s due in four hours…”

Added Ricker: “I considered wearing sweat pants to work today.”

Though groggy, McNearney and Ricker were enthusiastic about the reaction to Sunday night’s awards telecast, and the generally high marks that Jimmy Kimmel received as host.

“I’m hyper critical of these things,” said McNearney, who is also married to Kimmel. “After Jimmy does anything, it sounds terrible, but I will evaluate and re-evaluate everything — ‘Oh, »

Emmys Hated Donald Trump, Loved 'Jeb!'

From Jimmy Kimmel's opening monologue to Julia Louis-Dreyfus' acceptance speech, Trump jokes were all the rage at the 2016 Emmys on Sunday night. Kimmel, who served as host of the awards show, got the ball rolling by singling out The Apprentice producer Mark Burnett as the man who created the monster. "Many have asked, 'Who is to blame for Donald Trump, the Donald Trump phenomenon?' I'll tell you who, because he's sitting right there. Mark Burnett, the man who brought us Celebrity Apprentice.

Ratings: Emmys Got Nothing on ‘Sunday Night Football’

19 September 2016 8:25 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Americans like TV, but we Love our football. NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” sacked ABC’s Emmys last night; broadcast’s No. 1 series had the same treatment for the awards show when it was on Fox last year. Elsewhere, helped by an NFL lead-in, CBS’ JonBenet Ramsey investigation opened strongly on Sunday. Both the pro pigskin stuff and the best-of-television celebration aired live last night, so they’ll be adjusted up from the below numbers. The One-Two order won’t change, however.

19 September 2016 7:06 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Ratings-wise, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel-hosted Emmy Awards isn’t looking promising — per the earliest numbers, the 68th annual show slipped a slight 4 percent from last year’s low.
