MTV Movie Awards: Conan O'Brien plans to show some skin, ruin 'Game of Thrones' for you

11 April 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Sure, the MTV Movie Awards are this Sunday, but it’s not the only game in town: Over on HBO, the competition will be a brand-new episode of Game of Thrones. So how does host Conan O’Brien plan on combating the swords-and-sandals series? With both skin and spoilers, naturally.

“I’d like people to really see a lot of my body for the first time,” O’Brien tells EW of his plans as host. “What’s interesting is that the world has changed so much since when I first got into television; you have to be increasingly fearless. So, »

Andy Richter Wants to Replace Retiring ‘Legendary Talk Show Host’ (Video)

9 April 2014 8:14 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Andy Richter threw his sweater vest — er, hat — into the ring to replace a retiring talk show legend. Just not that legend. Conan O'Brien's sidekick informed his boss on Tuesday's TBS show that he may be leaving to take over for a departing TV mainstay — but not David Letterman. Richter is interested in Barbara Walters’ gig on “The View,” which opens after May 16.

‘Conan’ to Be First Ever Late-Night Show Broadcast From Comic-Con

7 April 2014 1:59 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Conan O'Brien will broadcast live from the Comic-Con convention in San Diego, making his TBS show “Conan” the first late-night show to broadcast from the annual event. You'll have to be patient, though, geeks; O'Brien's week of broadcasts won't take place until next year's event, running from July 8-12, 2015. Also read: The Most and Least Liked Potential Letterman Replacements – From Ellen DeGeneres to Conan O'Brien O'Brien's  shows will be broadcast from the Spreckels Theater in downtown San Diego.

MTV Movie Awards: Conan ditches Andy Richter, teams with Ice Cube instead

7 April 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

This Sunday, Conan O’Brien will host the 2014 MTV Movie Awards — but unlike his regular hosting gig on TBS, he’ll be on stage without his longtime sidekick Andy Richter.

Andy’s not reliable,” O’Brien explains to EW. “I’d love to bring Andy — in fact, I’ve tried to bring Andy to many things. But he’s like the country singer George Jones late in his career: Maybe he’ll show, maybe he won’t.”

Andy pretty much lives in an Rv,” O’Brien adds. “It’s very hard; he doesn’t have any representation. You can tell. »

Dallas Mavericks Star Dirk Nowitzki Puts Conan O'Brien on the Spot With "Texas Citizenship Test": Watch Now!

1 April 2014 5:39 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Is Conan O'Brien really an all-star when it comes to knowing the Lone Star State? Conan kicked off a week of shows in Dallas yesterday by immediately bragging about how much he knows about the state of Texas, prompting wingman Andy Richter to immediately call him out on his cockiness. "I am serious," Conan insisted. "I'm not being cocky, I'm being serious! Nobody at this point knows Texas better than I do. I don't think it's possible." "Well, then you should have no problem then passing the just-invented 'Texas Citizenship Test,'" Andy countered. And who better to administer the test than a hometown favorite?

Conan O’Brien, At&T Send Viewers To Web To See Show With 360-Degree Views

1 April 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A slab of beef hurtling through the air on TBS’  “Conan” marks the latest effort to nudge advertisers and late-night programs closer together.

Rather than put a product on the set of Conan O’Brien’s latenight program, At&T is this week sponsoring a unique digital-viewing experience for the show: Viewers who turn to the program’s website can view certain segments with a 360-degree perspective as the show airs, catching sight of not only the action, but the audience and everything else on set at a particular moment. Last night’s 360-degree segment featured Conan letting four and a half pounds of Texas red meat loose via a catapult.

“It definitely has not been done on any late-night program,”said Frank Sgrizzi, exec veep of sales and marketing for the entertainment networks owned by Time Warner’s Turner unit. “It has been used in sporting events.” The camera »

15 things we learned from the 'Parks and Recreation' PaleyFest panel

19 March 2014 2:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As with Sunday night's "Lost" panel, I stepped in to do a little TV duty this week and attended tonight's "Parks and Recreation" panel at the PaleyFest. I'm not sure there's a group of characters that I like spending time with each week as much as the "Parks" group right now. Pawnee has taken its place right alongside Springfield as one of the most fully-realized comedy communities in TV history. Each year, we learn more about the people of Pawnee and we learn more about the main characters and we just plain dig deeper into the roiling cauldron of weird that is headed up by the great Leslie Knope, played by the also-great Amy Poehler. After a very spirited round of interviews on the red carpet, I headed upstairs where they were just starting to screen this Thursday's new episode, "Galentine's Day." After this, there are only six more episodes this year, »

IFC Sets a Date For Season Two of 'Maron'

10 March 2014 3:13 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

IFC announced today that the second season of its original scripted comedy "Maron" will premiere on May 8th at 10pm Et/Pt. Marc Maron, a renowned podcaster and all around hilarious dude, returns to television to live out a standup comic's noblest dream: laying his life bare in a sitcom. Laced with a healthy dosage of Maron's signature self-loathing, "Maron" is essentially a heightened portrayal of his day-to-day life. Lucky for us, stand-up comedians are some of the most tormented, fascinating people on earth, and watching them battle through their days makes for good TV.Joining Maron in the second season of his life -- I mean his TV series -- are a host of excellent names and faces, including Bill Burr, Wyatt Cenac, David Cross, Joey “Coco” Diaz, Paul Feig, Chris Hardwick, Rachael Harris, Michael Ian Black, Moshe Kasher, Tom Kenny, Johnny Knoxville, Dave Koechner, Tig Notaro, Conan O’Brien, »

Conan O'Brien hosting the MTV Movie Awards: Does it make sense?

5 March 2014 1:50 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The MTV Movie Awards is that awards show that can only ever be one of two things: Either a semi-painful mix of awkward and boring, or a lot of fun. With awards like Best Kiss and Best Fight, the acceptance speeches are always unpredictable (as are the clothing choices). But perhaps the most unpredictable aspect of all is the host.

Throughout the past four years, hosts have included Aziz Ansari, Jason Sudeikis, Russell Brand, and Rebel Wilson, each of whom created a very different show experience. So what can we expect from the 2014 MTV Movie Awards now that Conan O »

Betty White Ogles 'Game of Thrones' Alum Jason Momoa

5 March 2014 1:35 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

At 92 years young, Betty White is still in her flirting prime. On Tuesday night's episode of Conan, the impossibly charming veteran actress batted her eyes seductively at host Conan O'Brien and side-kick Andy Richter, but saved her most intense ogling for ripped Game of Thrones alum Jason Momoa in his hilarious interview segment.

The lore of Leonardo DiCaprio’s acting acumen and dedication continues to grow, one yellowtail tuna sushi roll at a time. “Conan” guest Martin Scorsese shared stories Monday from the set of the Academy Award-nominated “Wolf of Wall Street” — including that time that Leo nearly overdosed on raw fish while filming the sushi scene with Jonah Hill.

Jimmy Fallon Says Goodbye to 'Late Night' With Help From the Muppets

8 February 2014 7:59 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

After 969 episodes, 10,000 monologue jokes and one on-camera upchuck by Questlove, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon had no shortage of material to reflect upon during its final episode. Yet last night, its happy host summed up the entire show’s run succinctly with one Frankensteined über-joke: "Joe Biden needed Obamacare after Anthony Weiner texted Justin Bieber a picture of Chris Christie dating a Kardashian on the Jersey Shore."

'The Tonight Show' without Jay Leno: Like the man said, it's time to go

7 February 2014 2:42 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Jay Leno said goodbye to The Tonight Show for the second time in his career on Thursday. Gone for good? So he joked. “I don’t need to be fired three times! I get the hint!” And so he wept, during his most personal — and arguably best — moment of his 22-year run as the custodian of the hallowed late night institution. “It really is time for me to go and hand it off to the next guy.” His last hour was a pretty good one, highlighted by the pure-pop moment of Billy Crystal bringing out a bunch of stars — Jack Black, »

‘Walking Dead’ Cast Debates Zombie Apocalypse Survival Techniques on ‘Conan’ (Video)

7 February 2014 8:49 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Conan O’Brien hosted the entire “Walking Dead” cast on his TBS show Thursday, where he got in the mood with an elaborate, zombified cold open. The bit followed an undead O’Brien creeping up on his sidekick Andy Richter, who was innocently listening to music in a crummy shack in the middle of the woods, as one does. The makeup jokes that followed practically wrote themselves, but are still worth a watch via the embedded video below.

Andy Richter Will Guest Star on The Millers

6 February 2014 2:05 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I love Conan O’ Brien. Therefore, by default, I love Andy Richter, his charming and often befuddled sidekick. There is just a real down-to-Earth likability about the guy. He has also proven his comedic chops by being on his own sitcoms, and even playing himself (and his many twins) on Arrested Development. Well, looks like Richter and [&hellip
