Amy Schumer partnered with Judd Apatow for this summer’s “Trainwreck,” and now she’s set to team with another big name in comedy for another feature film: She’s making a movie to be directed by Paul Feig, who helmed “Bridesmaids” and this summer’s “Spy.” The new film will be an action-comedy akin to Feig’s “The Heat” and will follow a mother and daughter trapped in a vacation gone wrong, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Schumer will star in the movie and co-write the script alongside with her sister, Kim Caramele. Schumer has been making waves in Hollywood lately with her Comedy Central sketch comedy series and with a hosting duties at the MTV Movie Awards. Time magazine gave her a place on its “100 Most Influential People” list this year. Many of her sketches have struck a refreshing chord with female viewers, especially last month’s “Girl, »

So much for the Smithsonian. What used to be the set of the Late Show With David Letterman ended up in an unceremonious final resting place—a massive dumpster set up outside the Ed Sullivan Theatre. David Letterman bid farewell to late night on Wednesday night and, after a two-pronged after-party at the Museum of Modern Art and a nearby Irish pub, Late Show staffers were due back Thursday morning at 8 a.m. to clean out their offices. Within hours, the entire set had been dismantled and the now-unnecessary wood and other materials were chucked into the bin. Even the gutted theater looked as if it had been hacked to pieces!

Late Show With David Letterman wrapped up Wednesday night with a genius finale and an incredible rapid-fire highlight reel soundtracked by the Foo Fighters' "Everlong."

'Tis the season to mark your calendars and begin the seven-month wait for Bill Murray's new Christmas special!
Murray is really having a moment this week -- which is something we hope we can say every week for at least a few more decades. He just popped out of a cake as David Letterman's final guest, then returned for "The Late Show's" last top 10 list. Now he's the star of "A Very Murray Christmas" holiday special. Netflix just teased the event in a brief video, with this tweet mentioning just two of the stars:

Hours after Late Show With David Letterman had its final airing, a demolition crew was hard at work taking down the set of the late-night staple. Pieces of the set, featuring New York skyline and landmarks, were hauled away. Some larger items, like the replica of the Brooklyn Bridge, and what appeared to be the desks of Letterman and long-time friend and band leader Paul Shaffer, were seen being loaded on trucks, while other pieces were discarded in dumpsters where some… »

Real comedy still happens on late night, we can prove it. If you like Conan comedy gold, Fallon friendliness, cutesy Corden, list-making Letterman, kneedy Kimmel, and all the rest, I hope you’ll enjoy this column too.
Last night was David Letterman’s last time ever hosting a late night program. Other late night hosts gave thanks, and Dave looked back at some favorite memories, with music by the Foo Fighters. If you can gauge which other hosts/networks like Dave the most based on who begged the audience to switch over to CBS, it’s Kimmel and Conan. Kimmel didn’t even air a live show last night, and Conan got Patton Oswalt to make enough references to Halloween 3 and The Andromeda Strain that everyone was forced to tune out.
Dave’s final entrance. Dave wishes Stephen Colbert all the best. The show will be in excellent hands. »

David Letterman's send-off carried on everlong into the night! After the Foo Fighters capped off the final episode of the Late Show With David Letterman on Wednesday with "Everlong," a tune very near and dear to the outgoing host's heart, the party continued into the night. The Late Show staff, Dave Grohl and his bandmates and a bunch of the celebrities who appeared on the show to read the last-ever Top Ten list, including Jim Carrey, Tina Fey and Steve Martin, all trooped over to the nearby Museum of Modern Art to fete Letterman—who looked as if he raided pal Bill Murray's closet before leaving the Ed Sullivan Theatre. Of course, the baggy striped pants, yellow Foo Fighters »
The final episode of Late Show With David Letterman aired Wednesday night. Throughout David's esteemed 33 years on late-night television, he has seen numerous guests and musical acts. It is amazing to see some of today's stars appear on his show when they were in the early stages of their careers, from a baby-faced Justin Bieber to teenage Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio. »
Ben Travers asks if the new Netflix show "Grace and Frankie" will be the "exception" that breaks the new Emmy rules. Even though the freshman program completely complies with the new rule that any 30-minute show must contend as a comedy series, the actual program offers an equal mix of comedy and drama (maybe more of the latter). The second-year Netflix series "Orange is the New Black" was forced to change sides from comedy to drama because it is a one-hour show. He says the program starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin "isn't afraid to make its audience feel the gravity of the situations presented."

To the end, Letterman was Letterman. Throughout the final broadcast of The Late Show, David Letterman commemorated 33 years of subverting late-night talk-show traditions by pushing against sentimentality. In the run-up to his grand finale, the host had been his usual self, uncomfortable with messy displays of emotion, exaggerated and sincere. He accepted compliments and testimonials from the likes of Julia Roberts, Bill Murray, Tom Hanks, and longtime regular Rupert Jee (of the Hello Deli), and standing ovations from his studio audience graciously but impatiently, even cautioning that if there was too much of that sort of thing, we'd all live to regret it. "See what happens?" he told the audience at last night's taping, which greeted his introduction with an extended standing O. "We don't have time for the giving-gifts-to-the-audience segment."The broadcast opened with a clip of President Gerald Ford at his 1975 inauguration declaring, "Our long national nightmare »
