Best of Late Night TV: Kevin Hart's Gassy Drinko, Jimmy Kimmel's 'X-Files' Spoof, Betty White's 94th Birthday

  • Moviefone
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.

Kevin Hart is promoting the heck out of "Ride Along 2" and he was on "The Tonight Show" Tuesday night to play Drinko. Jimmy Fallon said Kevin specifically requested this game because 1) Jimmy isn't very good at Drinko, and 2) Kevin said, "If I lose what's the big deal, I get a chance to drink for free." However, the "drinks" included stuff like "Pea Soup," "Pickle Juice," and "Tang," and they had to drink a mix of two of them. Kevin first got "Mulled Wine" and he didn't even know what it was. When Jimmy said it had stuff like cinnamon sticks and herbs, Kevin warned him, "Well, I'll tell

LeBron James, dirty jokes, & Amy Schumer's genius: The 'Trainwreck' spoiler review

LeBron James, dirty jokes, & Amy Schumer's genius: The 'Trainwreck' spoiler review
We have plenty of movie coverage here at HitFix — including Drew's rave review of this film from SXSW — but as happens when I see a film relatively early in its run, and particularly one like "Trainwreck" with a fair amount of crossover with what I cover in TV, I like to offer up a few of my thoughts, as well as a place for people who have seen the film to start discussing it. Again, this review is designed for people who've already seen "Trainwreck," and thus will have plenty of spoilers, coming up just as soon as we split the check... Amy Schumer is on an incredible roll right now. She just finished perhaps the strongest season to date of "Inside Amy Schumer" — and the "12 Angry Men" spoof is an early contender for 2015's best episode of television — and "Trainwreck" is a terrific movie introduction for her as both actress and writer.

The film was written by Amy Schumer, who also stars alongside Bill Hader. While plot details are being kept firmly under wraps, the film reportedly follows a woman with an aversion to monogamy trying to rebuild her messy life with a serious boyfriend, while simultaneously trying to balance her career and relationships with her father, sister and best friend. The film also stars Vanessa Bayer and Brie Larson, and features a huge ensemble, including Lebron James, Colin Quinn, Ezra Miller, John Cena, Barkhad Abdi, Mike Birbiglia, Jon Glaser, Daniel Radcliffe, Marissa Tomei, Amar'e Stoudemire and more. Check out the trailer below:Here is the trailer for @TrainwreckMovie #Trainwreck We are very proud.
