18 April 2015 12:44 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jon Stewart's stunning announcement that he was leaving The Daily Show left many Colbert Report fans – including Star Wars creator George Lucas – wondering whether Stephen Colbert would have taken that gig instead of David Letterman's The Late Show if Colbert had known of Stewart's impending departure. In a discussion with Lucas at the Tribeca Film Festival Friday, Colbert made it clear that hosting The Daily Show was never in his plans, Deadline reports.

"Don't you think the perfect choice to replace that Jon Stewart fella would have been you? »

Stephen Colbert Teased by George Lucas, Reveals Why He Wouldn't Want to Replace Jon Stewart on The Daily Show

18 April 2015 10:47 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

George Lucas got playfully snarky with moderator Stephen Colbert at a public Tribeca Film Festival event held in the Star Wars creator's honor. Speaking about 24 hours after the release of the new teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which he isn't directing or producing, the filmmaker poked fun at the former Colbert Report host's upcoming move to The Late Show. He spoke after an audience member asked Colbert if he considered getting into the filmmaking business himself. "Oh, he asked me a question about me and I'm here for George," Colbert said. "I do not wish to become a film director, but thank you for asking me that question. I'm flattered you would ask »

David Letterman's six-week, star-studded march toward his farewell show kicked off this week with a handful of old friends and favorite guests (like Billy Crystal) dropping by The Late Show to say goodbye to the late night host. Wednesday night, comic actress Amy Sedaris, a self-proclaimed 34-time Late Show guest, bid adieu to Letterman by serenading him with a medley to "wrap up" how she feels about the departing host. "No offense," Letterman quipped. "But can you sing?"

"Listen, it's a very awkward time for you. It's a lot of attention. »

Billy Eichner isn't the only person paying homage to soon-to-be-former Late Show host David Letterman.

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, »

‘Late Show': David Letterman Leaves Behind More Eager-to-Please Latenight Field

14 April 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

David Letterman looked fidgety, as he often does, listening to Al Franken compliment him. Although the comedy writer/performer-turned-u.S. senator from Minnesota doesn’t do many talkshows, Franken told the CBS host he wanted to pay homage to Letterman “before you become an eccentric recluse” after he retires from “The Late Show” on May 20.

“I have enormous respect for you, not just as a comedian,” Franken said, lauding Letterman as a great broadcaster, a caretaker of the timeslot, and someone who changed comedy.

Franken is right on most counts. Letterman offered a new look and feel to what could happen on latenight talkshows — in a way that has greatly influenced the generation that followed — and it also seems likely that he’ll emulate his idol, Johnny Carson, by riding into the sunset after a staggeringly long run (33 years in Letterman’s case, between NBC and CBS, vs. 30 for Carson »

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.

David Duchovny is gearing up to become Mulder once again with “The X-Files” revival going into production this summer, and he admits he’s always wanted the show to return.

“We always wanted to keep it going,” Duchovny told Variety on Thursday at NBC’s Summer Press Day in Pasadena, Calif., where he was on site to promote his upcoming drama “Aquarius,” which premieres May 28. “We always envisioned a movie franchise when we stopped the TV show, and we did two — the second one did well, but I guess not well enough to do a third, and we were all kind of disappointed that didn’t happen that way.”

The X-Files” reboot will return to Fox with original creator Chris Carter for six episodes, which Duchovny says was appealing to him. “Television started to change in that now there are limited runs.” He added: “I think it’s the way »

Billy Eichner Takes David Letterman To The Streets Of New York

2 April 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

In May, David Letterman will host his final episode of The Late Show before handing over CBS' flagship late night talk show to Stephen Colbert. With less than two months to go until his departure, Letterman needs to figure out what he'll do next, and that's where Billy Eichner comes in. The exuberant host of Billy on the Street has taken Letter to the streets of New York City, where passersby offer their opinions on what Letterman's next move should be.

In typical Billy on the Street fashion, Eichner gets right in his guests' faces and demands they offer all of their thoughts about David Letterman. He even receives from props himself from a few interviewees who know his work, though he quickly reminds them that "this is about David Letterman. It's not about me."

The last time we heard from Eichner, he was hanging out in a supermarket with »
