26 February 2015 9:25 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

You can't put a price on good hair...can you? Well, if you ask Julianna Margulies, it's about $10,000—per season! The star of The Good Wife (now in its sixth season) has spoken before about the wigs she wears while playing Alicia Florrick, but on Wednesday's Late Show With David Letterman, the 48-year-old actress revealed why the pricey props are actually a good investment for the CBS show! "What's great about it [the wig] is you always look the same. And then, because we do a lot of flashbacks, now I have all the wigs—we get a new wig every season, because they need to be changed or whatever," she said. "You have to freshen it up, and she [Julianna's Good Wife character] »

Julianna Margulies's Good Wife Wig Costs How Much? (Video)

26 February 2015 4:40 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

"Isn't that a good wig?" Julianna Margulies asked David Letterman Wednesday night on The Late Show. She was talking about the wig she apparently wears on The Good Wife, which was a surprise to us - and to Letterman. "That's fantastic," he responded. And it is. It should be, for what it cost. "Ten grand," Letterman says, guessing at the wig's price tag. "Ten grand," Margulies confirms. The wig - made from real human hair - was a custom job, created to match Margulies's hairline. She's a fan, anyway, because it saves her time in the makeup chair before filming. »

Will Smith Enthusiastically Rapped the Fresh Prince Theme Song For Ellen

25 February 2015 8:56 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Eternally the good sport, Will Smith appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and rapped the lyrics to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air's theme song. He's making the rounds promoting Focus, and since he rapped "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" on Late Show With David Letterman last week, he's presumably looking to top himself every time he's in public. What else can he do? Will he enlist Kevin Klein for a rendition of "Wild Wild West" for Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday? Fingers crossed. »

Best of Late Night TV: 'Parks and Recreation' Cast Kisses Goodbye; Josh Duhamel, Gabrielle Union Throw Food (Video)

24 February 2015 11:05 PM, PST | 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.

Seth Meyers had the cast of "Parks and Recreation" on his show Tuesday night for their big final goodbye. Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Scott, Retta, Jim O'Heir and Mike Schur discussed filming the finale, and revealed their own pitches for how they wanted the show to end. Since it's also the one-year anniversary of Seth's show, they sang an anniversary song for him, but they didn't rehearse it, so it didn't go too well. What did go very well was their "Bye, Bye Li'l Sebastian" song on the way out -- complete with Jim (Gerry) and Aubrey (April) making out, to the surprise of everyone around them. »

It doesn’t seem very long ago when Matthew Broderick played a high school kid playing hooky in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” and now he’s figuring out how to talk about the sticky subject of sex with his son. “Tell me how you broach the subject of sex with James Wilkie?” David Letterman asked when Broderick visited CBS’s “The Late Show” on Tuesday.

Best of Late Night TV: Christina Aguilera's Amazing Britney Spears Impression, Kobe Bryant's Lakers Disapproval (Video)

23 February 2015 11:10 PM, PST | 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.

Christina Aguilera was on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" Monday night, and Jimmy had "The Voice" coach play "Wheel of Musical Impressions." Xtina had to mix artists like Cher (with whom she worked in "Burlesque") with songs like the Folgers Coffee jingle. She was good! Christina really went for it when she got Britney Spears (her fellow Mouseketeer then pop star rival) paired with "This Little Piggy." Pretty obvious that was not just a random selection, but dagnabbit - Christina nailed it. For once, Jimmy was completely outshined at one of his own games. He gave her a standing ovation! Christina also sang Shakira well. The woman can sing. »

Stephen Colbert’s Beard Will Appear on The Mindy Project

21 February 2015 2:57 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Before Stephen Colbert takes the reins of The Late Show from David Letterman in September, he'll appear on The Mindy Project as Father Michael O'Donnell. Mindy Kaling broke the news when she tweeted a photo of herself with Colbert, "Coming soon to #themindyproject: Father Michael O’Donnell." While Fox declined to reveal details to Variety about his character, our bet is that Colbert will officiate the wedding of Mindy Lahiri and Danny Castellano. One thing that's certain is that his beard will be there. »

Will Smith Gets 'Jiggy Wit It' on 'Letterman'

19 February 2015 4:43 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Will Smith may be plotting a music comeback, especially if rumors that he's been in the studio with Kanye West are to be believed, but for now the Fresh Prince's happy rapping remains on hold — save for the occasional late night appearance. On Wednesday, Smith grabbed the mic as he was introduced on The Late Show With David Letterman, spitting a verse of his perennial party jam, "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It." Smith dedicated the impromptu performance — complete with audience participation on the "Na na na" bits — to... " Read the rest of Will Smith Gets 'Jiggy Wit It' on 'Letterman' at RollingStone.com »

Oscar Wilde Awards Honoree Stephen Colbert Taps Edgy Spirit of Ireland’s Great Wit

19 February 2015 12:18 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Being natural is simply a pose, and the most irritating pose I know.”

So wrote Oscar Wilde, and for the past nine years, as the facetiously reactionary host of “The Colbert Report,” Oscar Wilde Award honoree Stephen Colbert has been following that advice to the letter.

Though an Irish heritage is not necessary to be honored with the award, which emcee J.J. Abrams will present, Colbert actually does check that particular box, in spite of the Francophile pronunciation of his last name.

As Colbert noted in a statement: “My great-great grandfather sailed from Limerick with but two goals: 1) get a job digging the Erie Canal, and; 2) party in L.A. I am proud to fulfill his dream.”

Perhaps more importantly, Colbert’s Irish roots go far deeper than that, with his satirical style rooted in the great tradition of Dublin-born Jonathan Swift. As far as speaking truth to power with a dark economy of prose, »

Will Smith Got Down Big Willie Style and Expertly Rapped "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It"

19 February 2015 8:15 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Will Smith, the '90s king of excellent, semiclean rap songs went all kinds of Big Willie Style on the audience at Late Show With David Letterman this week. The band played his 1997 hit, "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It," as he entered the stage, but instead of sitting down to talk with Letterman, Smith grabbed a mic and started rapping the lyrics. He still knows all of them. It's nostalgia magic and might be even more satisfying than Jimmy Fallon's recent rendition of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." Check it out! »

Best of Late Night TV: Benedict Cumberbatch's Honeymoon, Edward Norton's SNL Complaint (Video)

16 February 2015 11:00 PM, PST | 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.

Jimmy Kimmel had a busy Monday night, in part because he was honeymooning with Benedict Cumberbatch. Benedict got married in England on Saturday, then showed up for "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Monday night. Jimmy said his own wife didn't want to spend their honeymoon with him, so he was flattered. Jimmy brought out some pina coladas so they could have a more festive honeymoon feel, then shared some wedding gifts. "Then later," Jimmy added, "we'll make love." Benedict and his wife are expecting their first child and Jimmy suggested a baby name. Benedict also discussed "Sherlock" and "The Imitation Game" and where he was when he learned he was nominated for an Oscar. »

Bill Hader Dreaded Doing That ‘Fart Face’ Sketch on SNL

14 February 2015 3:13 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Bill Hader is just one on a very long and famous list of names ready to appear on SNL's 40th-anniversary special on Saturday night. Hader dropped by The Late Show to talk about one of the worst sketches he did: It was the one he did with Will Forte where they just called each other "fart face." It played to dead silence when they threw the idea out to the writers, but Lorne Michaels loved it, so not only did it make it in, but it got moved up. And that's how fart face became a part of SNL history.Maybe it's just us, but knowing the story kind of makes the joke funnier, right, fart face? »

Brian Williams In the Hot Seat

13 February 2015 | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Less than a year ago Brian Williams was the 23rd-most-trusted person in America, according to an esteemed advertising-industry poll. Today that number has plummeted to 835, thanks to a tall tale Williams told late last month about being nearly shot down while on assignment during the Iraq invasion. In fact Williams, 55, has told the story many times, changing it dramatically with each repetition. While reporting from Iraq for NBC News in 2003, Williams said to viewers that “the Chinook ahead of us was almost blown out of the sky." On March 26, 2013, he revised the story on Late Show with David Letterman: »
