Could Your Favorite TV Show Become a Broadway Musical?

26 June 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Given all the musicals we've seen on TV recently -- NBC's live-performance versions of "Peter Pan" and "The Sound of Music," not to mention ABC's "Galavant" and all six seasons of Fox's "Glee" -- it's a wonder that the pipeline hasn't flowed in the opposite direction, from the small screen to Broadway.

That may change with the announcements that a couple of TV-based musicals are in the works. One is "Bombshell," the Marilyn Monroe biographical musical that was created and staged over the course of two seasons on NBC's "Smash." Bringing it to Broadway would seem easy enough -- the songs and choreography already exist; all that's needed is a book.

The other is a stage version of "Downton Abbey," which may launch after the British drama's sixth and final season wraps this winter. John Lunn, who composes the music for the series, says he envisions an international tour, starring »

Best of Late Night TV: Channing Tatum's Kid Theater, Jon Hamm Was Fired From Lizzy Caplan Pilot

24 June 2015 12:10 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.

What does "Magic Mike" mean to an 8-year-old? It's time to find out, in the most adorable way possible. Channing Tatum was on "The Tonight Show" and he and Jimmy Fallon re-enacted scenes from Chan's movie, "Magic Mike Xxl." The catch, though, was that the scenes were not from the male stripper movie, it was another round of Kid Theater, where kids were just given the name "Magic Mike" and asked to write scenes on the topic. Interestingly enough, even innocent magic references are loaded with "pumping" and "blow" sexual innuendo. Are these scenes ever really written by children or just childish adults?

Channing also shared a story from the "Magic Mike Xxl" set. »

Best of Late Night TV: Seth MacFarlane's Wheel of Impressions, Ashley Tisdale's Twitter Feud With Andy Richter

23 June 2015 12:15 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.

Seth MacFarlane is already known for his impressive vocal talents, so of course the "Family Guy" creator and "Ted 2" director was awesome at Jimmy Fallon's "Wheel of Impressions." Just watch him discuss Time Warner Cable as Liam Neeson (he has a very particular set of channels...), then take on Starbucks as Bobcat Goldthwait, and chat about movies as Ray Romano. All Bobcat impressions are gold, since there's almost no way to miss with that. Of course, these things are never random -- Seth already showed off his Liam impression in Moviefone's Unscripted last year, so they let him do it again.

In his own sit-down interview, Seth discussed how his father, »

10 classic Tfi Friday moments, from Shaun Ryder swearing to Freak or Unique

9 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

In 1996, Chris Evans and Danny Baker launched a show that would become as synonymous with 1990s as the Spice Girls and Eric Cantona.

Tfi Friday was the perfect show of its time, airing every Friday evening on Channel 4 and featuring as much Britpop and silly anarchic humour as you could ask for.

Ahead of its one-off comeback show this Friday (June 12), Digital Spy has collected just some of the most memorable and hilarious moments from its five years on air.

1. Shaun Ryder says "f**k" on live TV. In front of your mum.

Pity Chris Evans. With a mouth dodgier than the bizarre moustache he was sporting at the time, it was always going to be something of a liability bringing indie music's chief party-monster Shaun Ryder onto a family show that aired at just 6pm.

"If you don't swear tonight, I'll give you my shoes!" promised Evans, only »

Rip, Anne Meara: Stars Tweet Tributes, Ben Stiller Thanks Fans for 'Kind Words'

25 May 2015 3:40 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Actress/comedy legend Anne Meara -- who was also wife of Jerry Stiller and mother of Ben Stiller -- died of undisclosed causes on Saturday, May 23. The Stiller family shared a statement with the Associated Press, calling Jerry Anne's "husband and partner in life," adding that "The two were married for 61 years and worked together almost as long. [...] Anne's memory lives on in the hearts of daughter Amy, son Ben, her grandchildren, her extended family and friends, and the millions she entertained as an actress, writer and comedienne."

Some of those millions were her Hollywood peers, and they took to Twitter to react to the news of her death:

I did 2 films with Anne Meara, a lovely, gracious & Funny Lady. We lost one of the Good Ones! Rip Ms Anne.

Watch Conan O'Brien's Poignant David Letterman Tribute

21 May 2015 6:31 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Conan O'Brien bid farewell to David Letterman with a touching, hilarious monologue on Conan Wednesday night, and later urged his viewers to change the channel and watch the longtime host's final episode of The Late Show.

"There are no words that can encapsulate the sheer magnitude of what Dave has achieved these past 33 years," O'Brien said. "It cannot be done. He has been the North Star for me and every comic of my generation."

While O'Brien tried to explain Letterman's influence in an essay for Entertainment Weekly, on Conan he »

Best of Late Night TV: Jon Cryer Recreates Duckie's 'Pretty in Pink' Dance, a Toast to 'Justified' (Video)

15 April 2015 12:00 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.

Jon Cryer, Grace Helbig, and Freida Pinto were on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" Tuesday night. Jon, aka Duckie, did a "Pretty in Pink" routine with James. They recreated his record store dance to Otis Redding's "Try a Little Tenderness," and even took it into the audience. Jimmy Fallon must be biting his fingernails over these fun bits -- especially since "The Tonight Show" is on repeats this week and James is having a blast. Here's the new "Pretty in Pink" dance and the original from the movie: In other "Late Late Show" news, the group talked about Uber. Freida has lived in L.A. for three years now, »

Kevin Hart Helps Conan O’Brien Complete Michelle Obama’s #GimmeFive Challenge (Video)

8 April 2015 7:32 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Conan O’Brien may want to consider a gym membership, or at least hiring Kevin Hart as his personal trainer. On Tuesday’s episode of “Conan,” the TBS host played a video in which first lady Michelle Obama challenged him to take the #GimmeFive challenge, an initiative Obama started five years ago to encourage physical fitness. Obama said she noticed O’Brien was not very muscular and she wanted him to complete five chin ups as part of the challenge, which the comedian took exception to — without any support from his sidekick, Andy Richter.

Best of Late Night TV: Louis C.K. Refused to Hire Jimmy Fallon in '90s, Rick Gervais' Awkward Man-Wich (Video)

7 April 2015 11:58 PM, 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.

Louis C.K. was on "The Tonight Show" and he and Jimmy Fallon discussed some personal history. Apparently Jimmy forgot, but he auditioned for Louis when Louis was the head writer for "The Dana Carvey Show" in the '90s. They were auditioning people to be in the cast and Jimmy came in - this adorable little boy (as Louis recalled). Jimmy played his guitar and had little troll dolls, then turned and wiggled his tight little a**. Jimmy argued that he definitely didn't turn and wiggle his butt several times. When the names came up for casting, all the women in the staff argued for Jimmy but Louis and »

Shade Alert! Andy Richter Calls Out Ashley Tisdale's Terrible Parking Job in Hilarious Twitter Pic

7 April 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Think stars get a free ride? Well, not all the time! Ashley Tisdale was caught red-handed by none other than Andy Richter, who shamed her parking job on Twitter for all to see. After posting a photo of her black Mercedes sedan pulled sloppily into her reserved spot (be sure to watch out for your side mirror on the left, Ashley!), he wrote, "Was someone late to rehearsal?" Oh, the pure, sweet unadulterated shade. Just two weeks ago, Tisdale was celebrating her new parking spot on the Warner Brothers lot where her new show Clipped is being filmed. She posted a pic of her feet standing next to the paint that read, "A. Tisdale," and wrote, "At my new home Warner Brothers. »

Conan O'Brien and Chris Parnell just brilliantly mocked Indiana

1 April 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This is the kind of clip that keeps Conan O'Brien's comedy one step above the rest of the late night fray: Not only is it topical and hilarious, but it's damning too. Watch as Conan O'Brien and Chris Parnell (as Indiana's "religion czar" in charge of enforcing the state's new, arguably discriminatory "religious freedom" bill) discuss how easy it is to recognize homosexuals in a crowd or at a leather bar. Andy Richter can't help but cackle. »

Let's reflect on Amy Poehler's incredible work as Andy Richter's little sister

26 March 2015 1:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For no reason at all (other than the recent occasion of St. Patrick's Day maybe?), you just need to watch this hilarious bit from the late '90s with Amy Poehler guest-starring on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" as Andy Richter's insane, Conan-loving little sister. Poehler played versions of this character on Comedy Central's "Upright Citizens Brigade" and later on "SNL," but its raw power is most unbridled here. Remember how long sketches used to go on these shows? I miss it! »

Best of Late Night TV: Jimmy Fallon's Mitt Romney Impression and James Franco's Thoughts on 'The Interview' (Video)

26 March 2015 12:15 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.

Mitt Romney kicked off the late night docket with an appearance on "The Tonight Show," which was surprisingly hilarious thanks to a lil' something called Mitt in the Mirror -- in which the governor talked to his reflection (aka Jimmy Fallon). Let's just say Jimmy does Mitt even better than Mitt!

Time for another edition of Lie Witness News on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" This time, Jimmy's crew took to the streets of Hollywood Boulevard to ask people who claimed to be March Madness fans about a bunch of random basket ball players that definitely don't exist. Prepare for lots of second-hand embarrassment.

Robert Durst Terrorizes 'Conan'

24 March 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Just when the world thought it was safe from Robert Durst, the wheezing millionaire and accused killer terrorized Conan and sent host Conan O'Brien and announcer Andy Richter into a panic Monday night.

Despite Durst's arrest last week, Richter pointed out that with his money and connections, he could have easily weaseled his way out of prison and gone on the lam. While O'Brien seemed skeptical at first, his worst fears were realized with Durst's bespectacled head suddenly appeared on camera.

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

23 March 2015 11:36 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“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.

Bob’s Burgers Recap: Gene Jacket

16 March 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Story A special thing is happening for Bob and Linda: date night. It only happens thrice, sometimes twice, a year, so it's a big deal. It has to be perfect, but don't worry — Bob has planned everything out ahead of time. It's also a special night for Louise: She's bringing Princess Littlepiddles, the fourth-grade pet chinchilla, home for the weekend. Bob decides to take Linda to a place called Stoolz for bar trivia; Linda is not thrilled. Louise brings home Pl, and a boy named Wayne (Andy Richter) is not thrilled. So much so that he barges into the Belcher residence and inadvertently lets the Princess free. Because Pl is prone to seizures and allergic to everything, it's a race to find him before he — yes, it's a boy chinchilla — meets his fluffy maker.
