Holy Crap - Jay Leno and David Letterman Are So Young in This '80s Clip

19 May 2015 12:20 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Before they were rivals, Jay Leno was a stand-up comedian and a frequent guest on David Letterman's first talk show. The two look really chummy in this clip from the early '80s. Leno talks about life on the road as a comic and how young comedians consult him about how to score an appearance on Letterman's show. It's so crazy to see both the tenured late-night hosts 30 years younger and completely unaware of what's in store for their futures. Late Night With David Letterman ran on NBC from 1982 to 1993 before the host hopped over to CBS to host the Late Show With David Letterman, directly in opposition to The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. Late-night TV would never be the same . . . »

Filming Underway on Barbara Crampton-Produced Board Game Horror Film ‘Beyond the Gates’

28 April 2015 8:02 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Vcr board games: they brought tabletop entertainment to a new, interactive level. In Beyond the Gates, though, two brothers discover a video board game that's a little too interactive, transferring them to another world where their dad's soul is on the line and a roll of the dice could lead to eternal torment. The Barbara Crampton-produced movie is now filming with Jackson Stewart behind the camera and a group of talented cast members playing the mysterious game.

Press Release -- "Los Angeles, CA (April 27, 2015) – Jackson Stewart has set indie horror favorites Graham Skipper (Almost Human), Chase Williamson (The Guest), and Brea Grant (Halloween 2) as the leads in Beyond The Gates, a throwback paranormal movie in the spirit of horror classics such as Phantasm, The Beyond, and Poltergeist.

Trevor Noah Is Already in Trouble Because of These Tweets

31 March 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

After a mere three appearances on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, comedian Trevor Noah was chosen to replace the anchor. He was first spotted on the show back in December, as a new correspondent speaking about how similar America had become to South Africa. It's a tremendous (and unexpected) leap of faith for Comedy Central, given Noah's lack of notoriety. Names like Jessica Williams, Samantha Bee, and Jason Jones had all been tossed out as possible successors, but Noah is interesting for a number of reasons - not all of them positive. Here's what you need to know about the new host! He's already facing controversy. The new host probably should have deleted some tweets from the past. He's already getting major heat for a few tweets sent between 2011 and July 2014. Some are just tasteless jokes, but others can definitely be perceived as anti-Semitic. Comedy Central responded to the criticism, »

Can Trevor Noah fill Jon Stewart's big shoes for 'Indecision 2016'?

30 March 2015 8:03 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The South African’s appointment is welcome – but as an outsider, can he cover the 2016 presidential campaign as convincingly as Jon Stewart would have done?

This morning, Comedy Central officially announced 31-year-old South African comedian Trevor Noah as the third host of its flagship late-night show, The Daily Show. Noah has been slowly working his way up the ladder of Us comedy over the last few years, with his own Showtime special and appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Late Show with David Letterman. When he joined The Daily Show back in December as an international correspondent, it seemed like a forward-thinking move on the part of the network. But it’s a big jump to take over from Jon Stewart, whose wry voice has become a pillar of American satire.

On the one hand, he’s no stranger to hosting; before he became Africa’s most successful standup, »

27 March 2015 6:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Trevor Noah only joined “The Daily Show” as a contributor at the end of last year, but he could soon find himself serving as an integral part of the program.

Noah is gaining consideration as a potential successor to Jon Stewart, the Comedy Central mainstay’s longtime host, according to a person familiar with the matter, and if successful, could get a crack at becoming one of the more influential voices in latenight.

PopPolitics: Why Politicians Need Late-Night Talk Shows (Listen)

14 March 2015 1:07 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When President Obama read “Mean Tweets” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” this week, he was merely getting in on the joke.

Where once it was very unlikely that a sitting president would appear on a latenight talk show, Obama has made it a given, not just to sit with a host and do a breezy interview, but to also engage in a comedy skit.

When Obama made his first appearance since taking office on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” in 2009, pundits wondered whether it was too unpresidential; those criticisms have abated. Now the question is what can draw attention and get people listening.

Presidential contenders have made a point of visiting latenight talk shows ever since candidate Bill Clinton went on “The Arsenio Hall Show” in 1992, playing the saxophone and helping boost his likability.

President Obama Reads Mean Tweets on ‘Jimmy Kimmel’

12 March 2015 9:16 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

President Obama, appearing on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Thursday, played along with the host in riffs on birthers, mean Tweets and Hillary Clinton’s e-mail address.

Making his first appearance on the show since he became president, Obama did a version of Kimmel’s segment where guests read mean Tweets about themselves (video below). According to a pool report, Obama said that the Tweets were not as mean as “what the Senate says about me.”

In joke about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account, Obama refused to give Kimmel her email address.

As he has done before, Obama joked about birthers, or the belief that he was born in Kenya even though the White House long ago produced a birth certificate to refute it.

When Kimmel asked Obama if he could drive, Obama responded, “I can’t drive. I mean I can, but…”
