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.
There is no guarantee that Noah will inherit Stewart’s seat, and no final decision has been reached, this person cautioned. Comedy Central ‘s selection process has accelerated in recent days, this person said. And Noah, a South African comedian, has moved to a short list being put together by executives at the Viacom-owned cable outlet.

Tom Hanks is, bar none, one of the most charismatic actors working today. Aside from elevating any movie he takes part in, he seems like a real stand-up guy off the camera as well. Hanks has always been a good sport when it comes to interviews and sketch comedy (his SNL stints are not to be missed), so before we seem him take a serious turn this Fall in Spielberg's Bridge Of Spies, let's take a quick trip down the bulk of his filmography, courtesy of The Late Show with James »

Months after the limited theater and digital release of Seth Rogen and James Franco's controversial 2014 comedy, The Interview, the actors are still being asked to reflect on the film's political and ethical implications. During a sit-down Thursday on The Late Show With David Letterman, Franco was adamant that the movie's plot – which finds the duo playing celebrity journalists tasked by the CIA to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un – did more good than harm. "We never felt like we were irresponsible or doing something wrong," he told the host. »
Queens rapper and gourmet food aficionado Action Bronson hit the Late Show With David Letterman Wednesday, marking the release of his major label debut, Mr. Wonderful, with a soulful performance of "Baby Blue" alongside Chance the Rapper.
Bronson was his typical gregarious self on the mic, rolling through the somber Mark Ronson-produced cut with a matter-of-fact ease that belied the ridiculousness of his boasts ("There were times I used to hide my feelings / Now I'm butt naked in the Lamborghini"). Chance the Rapper, for his part, kept it marvelously surreal, »
Bill O'Reilly has voiced his support for embattled NBC News anchorman Brian Williams on Late Show With David Letterman, chalking the controversy up to a culture of celebrity sniping. "We have a sport in the United States called 'Let's Destroy the Famous Person,' and that's what happened to him," he said. "I think that NBC should bring him back. I think they will bring him back."
The sentiment signals somewhat of an about-face from the conservative pundit, who took aim at Williams after the anchor admitted to "misremembering" being »
Fox New Channel's embattled primetime host Bill O'Reilly visited Late Show With David Letterman tonight to plug NatGeo Channel's premiere of Killing Jesus, based on his book, and to declare victory over journalists who have charged O'Reilly with inflating and/or making up claims about some of his reporting during his earlier TV journalism career. O’Reilly told Letterman everything he’d said was “accurate.” “We had a controversy, and we put forth what my side was, and they… »
On Sept. 8, 1965, Oakland A’s manager Charlie O. Finley decided — in an effort to draw crowds — that the Mlb team’s young shortstop, Bert Campaneris, would do something no other major leaguer had done before: play every position on the field in one game.
Inspired by the historic event 50 years later, Will Ferrell replicated the act and then some.
Over the course of one day of Major League Baseball spring training in Arizona, Ferrell played all nine field positions, plus designated hitter, for 10 different teams in five different games, traveling to each new game by van or helicopter.
He did so for charity, raising money for Cancer for College, an organization that gives college scholarships to cancer survivors. The stunt was filmed for an HBO special from Funny or Die in partnership with Major League Baseball, and came complete with the hashtag #ferrelltakesthefield.

In case you’ve been sleeping under a rock, the entire late night TV landscape is currently undergoing a massive changeover. After David Letterman departs The Late Show this spring, and after Jon Stewart leaves The Daily Show later this year, we’ll have an almost entirely new late night TV lineup. One of the first big shifts took place last night with the debut of The Late Late Show with James Corden, as the Brit took over for Craig Ferguson, who departed the Letterman follow-up last fall. I haven’t had a chance to watch Corden’s debut just yet, but he made a few significant changes to how late night TV is done here in the States—namely bringing out all of his guests at once (a la The Graham Norton Show), dispensing with the fake microphone atop his desk, and also leaving the desk altogether to take part in the interviews. »

For those who didn't know, British comedy star James Corden (who you may recognize from Into the Woods or Begin Again) took over "The Late Late Show" from Craig Ferguson and his first official show was last night. It's quite a big responsibility, especially when you're following David Letterman (at least until Stephen Colbert takes over "The Late Show"), but Corden had quite a fun inaugural episode with American treasure Tom Hanks stopping by. Corden and Hanks teamed up to recreate every Tom Hanks movie from his decades of acting in under seven minutes. From Big to Cast Away to Captain Phillips. Watch it! Here's James Corden & Tom Hanks doing every Tom Hanks movie in seven minutes (via YouTube): You can't go wrong with some good clean fun with Tom Hanks. At first he seemed almost annoyed to be involved, but I think maybe it was just beginning with »

Update: In updated affiliate-based estimates from Nielsen, the premiere of “The Late Late Show with James Corden” averaged a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.66 million viewers overall — the largest “Late Late Show” audience on a Monday since November 2011 with Craig Ferguson as host.
Compared to the averages last fall with Ferguson, Monday’s “Late Late Show” was up 33% (0.1) in adults 18-49 and 13% (about 190,000) in total viewers. And versus the same night a year ago, “Late Late Show with James Corden” was even in the demo and up 22% in total viewers.
More detailed viewership estimates will be released later today, but Nielsen estimates that the CBS latenight program averaged a 1.4 household rating/5 share in the 56 metered markets. This is a 27% improvement over the same night last »

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.
Monday night marked James Corden's debut as the new "Late Late Show" host, replacing Craig Ferguson. Tom Hanks and Mila Kunis were his first guests, and you can see they redesigned the set so they're all just sitting next to each other. Mila went on record to say she loved being pregnant and loves being a mom. Bold stance! James told a story where he thought he and his wife were being followed by paps but the photog was really shooting Ashton and Mila. The three of them talked about their kids, and Tom said he is the new face of "manspreading."
In the second video, James introduced himself and the band, »

All he needs is a pot of gold! Will Ferrell stopped by CBS's Late Show With David Letterman Tuesday in full leprechaun attire to honor St. Patrick's Day. Of course, the comedian who is known for his wild antics didn't stop there. The 47-year-old made time to sing a wacky rendition of the Irish classic "Danny Boy." The Get Hard star wore a green tailcoat with matching pantaloons, a shiny yellow vest, as well as some snazzy, buckled shoes. We see you! Letterman took one look at Ferrell and revealed, "Earlier today, when I was told you were coming out dressed as a leprechaun, I told myself that will be stupid, but you look like a billion dollars, my »
You may think that the highlight of this video is seeing Will Ferrell dressed up like a leprechaun, but it's not. Ferrell stopped by Late Show With David Letterman and treated the audience to a special throwback of one of his most famous Saturday Night Live impressions: baseball broadcast personality Harry Caray. He set the stage for the impression before delving into it like it was 2000. Check it out, just be prepared for some serious nostalgia. »
Shailene Woodley is all about marching to the beat of her own drum.
The 23-year-old Insurgent star -- who's become well-known for her unconventional health practices like sunning her private parts and eating clay -- is now singing the praises of drinking "bone broth" in the morning.
During her recent appearance on Late Show with David Letterman, Shailene explained what she finds so appealing about her morning drink of choice, which she says is made from boiled bones and other animal parts brewed anywhere from 24 hours to 36 hours.
"What I think is beautiful about it is you utilize the whole animal," she said. "You're not just seeking out that perfect cut of muscle meat and what not."

If you thought Saturday Night Live's 40th anniversary special had everyone laughing, Will Ferrell says think again. "I wanted to watch the monologue … with Steve Martin," Ferrell said Tuesday night on the Late Show with David Letterman, where he showed up dressed like a leprechaun for St. Patrick's Day.

"Everyone's just clapping, and Bill O'Reilly's like this," Ferrell said, mimicking O'Reilly with a hand under his chin looking stone-faced and unamused.

The “Get Hard” star appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman” on Tuesday dressed as a leprechaun for St. Patrick’s Day. See photos: Happy St. Patrick’s Day: 11 Movies to Get You Pumped to Party But rather than most revelers who use the holiday as an excuse to drink green beer, Ferrell takes it much more seriously. “We forget that in the fifth century, the real Saint Patrick, he chased all the snakes out of Ireland,” Ferrell said.

While donning his all-green garbs, the comedian decided to call out a fellow Irishman. Ferrell recalled seeing Bill O'Reilly at the SNL 40 special this past month, and said the Fox News host didn't look like he was having a good time. Ferrell told Letterman that he was looking for audience reactions as the opening monologue began, and saw O'Reilly sitting there with his head rested on his fist, not smiling.
"A real sourpuss," Ferrell said of the TV personality. "I don't know what he was doing there if he wasn't a fan."
The Get Hard star, 47, also shared with Letterman why he decided to dress like a leprechaun, quipping that he takes the Irish holiday very seriously. "Every St. Patrick's »
