20 November 2014 12:09 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

While Whoopi Goldberg recently denied The View feud rumors during an appearance on Late Night With David Letterman, there's no denying that there was a palpable tension on set today when the co-hosts debated over the headline-making Bill Cosby rape allegations.  The 77-year-old TV star has been accused of rape by multiple women. The decade-old allegations against the former Cosby Show star recently resurfaced after comedian Hannibal Buress referred to them during a standup set. After the show played a clip of Cosby during an Associated Press interview, in which the star asked that the reporter "scuttle" the mentions of any sexual »

SAG-aftra Reaches Deal on Network Code Contract

14 November 2014 10:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

SAG-AFTRA and the networks have reached a tentative agreement over a three-year-plus successor agreement to the union’s Network Television Code master contract.

The deal covers about $200 million in annual wages for SAG-AFTRA members on such non-primetime shows as “Good Morning America,” “The View,” “The Price is Right,” “The Young and the Restless,” “Saturday Night Live,” “Dancing with the Stars,” “The Voice,” “Amazing Race,” “Nightline” and “Late Night with David Letterman.”

The two sides reached the deal late Friday night following two weeks of negotiations, which had launched Nov. 3 with a news blackout. The current deal expires Saturday.

The pact will be sent next to the SAG-AFTRA national board, which would trigger a ratification vote by membership if the board approves.

The new deal will go into effect retroactively to Nov. 16 through June 30, 2018.

The negotiations covered work by SAG-AFTRA’s 165,000 members on syndicated dramatic programs, daytime serials, »

Whoopi Goldberg Says View Feud Rumors Are Sexist: ''Nobody Ever Asks Those Questions to the Guys''

7 November 2014 12:20 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

When it comes to those pesky View feud rumors, Whoopi Goldberg is fighting back.  The hit ABC talk show, which features new faces Nicolle Wallace and Rosie Perez in addition to returning moderators Rosie O'Donnell and Goldberg, has been at the center of multiple reports claiming the ladies are seriously butting heads when the cameras aren't rolling.  Goldberg, who is the only returning panelist from last season, appeared on Late Night With David Letterman on Thursday, where she addressed the recent reports, implying that the claims are sexist while insisting there's no truth to the tabloid tales.  The 58-year-old TV personality, who has been »

Robert Downey Jr. Drops Bomb On 'Iron Man' Franchise

8 October 2014 2:24 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Robert Downey Jr. isn't quite done with Iron Man just yet, but here's the sad new truth: he won't be making a fourth Iron Man film.  The actor stopped by Late Night with David Letterman last night to promote his new film, The Judge, but talk quickly turned to the future of the Iron Man films. Letterman knows what the people want, and he went after those answers.

When first asked about a fourth film, Downey would only say, “There’s no plans for an Iron Man 4.” Downey quickly tried to change the subject because Marvel is notorious for being very secretive of their future plans. He didn’t want to let too much slip out before an official announcement.

Letterman persisted and asked again whether there will be any more Iron Man movies, Downey finally gave in and gave a quick but informative response, saying, “Just between us, no, »

Actors Shouldn’t Promote Their Movies In Character

14 August 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Remember the movie Rubin and Ed? If not, maybe you at least remember when Crispin Glover appeared on Late Night with David Letterman in character as his role as Rubin. That was the time the actor nearly kicked the talk show host in the face. The problem there was partly that Letterman didn’t know what was going on. Also, neither Rubin and Ed nor Glover were familiar enough to warrant such a stunt or for that sort of promotion to work in their favor. Years later, Joaquin Phoenix drew comparisons to Glover when he appeared on Letterman’s Late Show acting strangely. It turned out he was also in character, albeit for a project then still in the works rather than as a promotional stunt. Well, actually it sort of worked as that, too, but either way it wasn’t helpful in wooing audiences to the movie involved, I’m Still Here. Both »

Comedy Central Renews Chris Hardwick’s ‘@midnight’

11 August 2014 9:20 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“@midnght,” host Chris Hardwick’s popular weeknight panel show that famously mixes the best of what both social media and improv comedy have to offer, has been given a second season order at Comedy Central.

The show became a ratings hit — especially with younger viewers — by maintaining high social engagements through crowdsourcing campaigns like the Twitter-focused #HashtagWars and including edgier comedic guest panelists like Ron Funches and Natasha Leggero.

“People always ask me when ‘@midnight’ airs,” Kent Alterman, Comedy Central’s president of content development and original programming (possibly) joked when he made the announcement.

Hardwick, a comedian and former host of the MTV dating show “Singled Out” who grew in popularity through channels like his Nerdist podcasts before partnering with AMC on postmortem talk shows for their fan-favorited “The Walking Dead” and “Breaking Bad,” said “’@midnight’ has been an absolute dream come true for me — a game show of »

Emmy Watch: How the Late Night Upheaval Could Shake Up the Variety Series Competition

21 May 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

When Johnny Carson signed off from The Tonight Show in 1992, his reign as the King of Late Night was celebrated with an Emmy win for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series. Granted, the competition that year was sparse: Fox's sketch-comedy show In Living Color and NBC's Late Night with David Letterman were the only others nominated.

This year, as newly retired Tonight Show host Jay Leno attempts to secure one final nomination in the category now known as...

Adam Resnick on His New Book, Writing for Letterman, and Annie Hall’s Lobster Problem

16 May 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It’s pretty much a well-known fact that there is nothing more difficult than being funny. It’s much harder to make someone laugh than it is to operate on their brain or send them into space. But Adam Resnick has never shied away from hard work — just people. In his new nonfiction book, Will Not Attend: Lively Stories of Detachment and Isolation, the esteemed former Late Night With David Letterman writer and Chris Elliott cohort (Get a Life and Cabin Boy) manages to crack you up on one page and have you in tears the next. And not because it’s sad, either — because you’re chuckling so strenuously. I first met Adam in 1986, when I was interning at Late Night during his long and influential stint there; he and I forged a deep bond over being anxious and constantly sleepy that continues to give us common ground all these years later. »

Why Stephen Colbert Is a Smart 'Late Show' Pick

10 April 2014 1:05 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

On the face of it, David Letterman and Stephen Colbert don't seem to have that much in common. Perpetually cranky and never much of a people person, Letterman grew up in the Midwest with dreams of getting into broadcasting or comedy, maybe as a standup. A vocal Catholic with an ebullient personality, Colbert was raised in the South, thinking that perhaps he'd become a dramatic actor until he realized that getting laughs was more fun. Letterman has made his name being his lovably ornery self. Colbert has made his playing »
