Billy Eichner remembers Joan Rivers: 'A friend, and my greatest champion'

16 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Can we talk?

Whenever Joan Rivers asked that question, she wasn’t really seeking permission. Right up until the moment she died on Sept. 4 at age 81 in New York City, following complications during throat surgery, it was clear that she was going to talk, loudly and often, and you were going to listen. And love it. One of the first truly transgressive female comedians, both on the stand-up circuit and in her countless TV appearances (from The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson to Fashion Police), she was famous for bringing her whip-smart wit to any subject, no matter how taboo. »

Jimmy Fallon Plays Elvis, Blake Shelton and Michael Bublé for Duets with Barbra Streisand (Video)

16 September 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

As someone who can convincingly swing from Jim Morrison's chesty baritone and druggy torpor to Tom Petty's reedy yelp and … well, druggy torpor, Jimmy Fallon makes a hell of a duet partner. Which is fitting, because Barbra Streisand's new album, Partners, is just that: a series of duets with different singers, including old recordings of the King. And with the exception of a brief cameo on The Late Show in 1994, Streisand hasn't been on late-night talk show since 1963, so Monday night was quite the occasion for the 72-year-old music legend. Not that she isn't up to date: »

Billy Eichner and David Letterman Play ''Celebrity Child or Kentucky Derby Winner?'' (Spoiler: Late-Night Host Loves Being Screamed At)

12 September 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Typically, Billy Eichner takes to the streets of NYC to scream in innocent people's faces, but on Thursday night David Letterman fell victim to one of the Funny or Die star's favorite games.  "On this game, we do have a time limit. We're going to put 30 seconds on the clock…this game is a game called 'Celebrity Child or Kentucky Derby Winner.' I'm going to give you a name—these are all real names—you have to tell me if it's the name of a celebrity's child or the name of a real Kentucky Derby winner," Eicher explained during his appearance last night on The Late Show with David Letterman.  After Letterman asked for clarification as to whether the two »

‘Saturday Night Live’ Shuffle: Michael Che to Replace Cecily Strong as ‘Weekend Update’ Anchor

11 September 2014 6:11 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Comedian/writer Michael Che will replace Cecily Strong on the “Weekend Update” anchor desk for “Saturday Night Live’s” 40th season.

NBC confirmed the change late Thursday. Che will serve as co-anchor alongside Colin Jost, who joined the desk opposite Strong about halfway through last season.

Strong and Jost were installed on “Weekend Update last season after longtime anchor and “SNL” writer Seth Meyers moved to the nightly “Late Night” slot in February.

Strong will remain a full-time member of the “SNL” ensemble, NBC said. Exec producer Lorne Michaels told the New York Times that the show tried numerous combinations to get a fresh mix on “Update.”

“This is about a new era, what feels appropriate for now,” Michaels told the Times. “That’s why we did a lot of combinations and tests, and this is kind of where we came out.”

Che has worked as a writer on “SNL »

11 September 2014 7:09 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Best of Late Night TV: Jimmie Johnson's Cooler Race, Nick Offerman's College Advice, Lying Fashionistas (Video)

11 September 2014 1:47 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.

"Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon opened up his suggestion box to find a query from a fan asking him to challenge someone to a race using a beer cooler scooter -- literally, a motorized scooter built from a cooler. Fallon brought in Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson for the bit, and offered him a beer helmet for protection, though Johnson was eager to get the race over with. "I just can't wait to ... see what's inside the cooler," he told Fallon.

Another suggestion box question from a college freshman sought advice for school, which Fallon said he didn't feel qualified giving. Instead, he called upon "Parks and Recreation" star Nick Offerman, »

Former Intern Drops Lawsuit Against CBS, David Letterman's Company

10 September 2014 5:17 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Internship lawsuits are everywhere in Hollywood, but it's rare they end this quickly. The proposed class-action suit filed by former intern Mallory Musallam against CBS and Worldwide Pants — the production company through which David Letterman produces The Late Show With David Letterman — was dismissed on Wednesday. That's less than a week after Musallam filed the Sept. 4 complaint, in which she alleged that her 2008 internship violated New York's minimum wage and overtime laws. The New York Post is now reporting that Musallam has apologized for the lawsuit and has accused attorneys at the firm representing her, Virginia & Ambinder, of

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.

Surprise! On Tuesday night, Jimmy Fallon brought Britney Spears out to read off a list of the pros and cons of dating her. She's recently single -- and apparently "The Tonight Show" audience was filled with people who are already in love with her since they stood and cheered when she showed up. (Jimmy had to remind them it's *his* show.) Jimmy said they created a profile for Britney on Tinder (bio: "This better work, b-tch.") and Britney acted shocked and not too thrilled. Stay to the end to hear her "It's Britney, b-tch" line. Keith Richards was also on "The Tonight Show" and you know the man has stories. »

Best of Late Night TV: Mel Brooks Dons Drag for Joan Rivers's 'Late Show,' Jason Segel and Steve Harvey Play 'Family Feud' (Video)

9 September 2014 12:51 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.

Mel Brooks stopped by "Conan" to reminisce about his dearly departed friend Joan Rivers, who the comedian praised as "sharp, very brilliant, and very funny." Brooks said part of Rivers's brilliance was her willingness to make jokes about dark or unfamiliar subject matter with a fearlessness that was inspiring. Host Conan O'Brien then cued up a clip from when the comedian guest-hosted Rivers's "Late Show" in 1986, and Brooks took a unique approach to the job: donning one of Rivers's dresses, and doing the show in full drag, complete with wig, jewelry, makeup, nail polish, and heels. It's a great gag, and a fun way to remember just how eventful »

Barbara Walter Writes Eulogy for Joan Rivers

7 September 2014 9:25 PM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Prior to her death Thursday, Joan Rivers made no secret of the fact that she disliked being called a pioneer. "I'm still in the trenches," the legendary comic once told a reporter. "I'm still breaking ground."

Regardless of whether she liked the label, she left behind quite a legacy. "We always talk about Barbara Walters being a pioneer and role model for young women, and there used to be a time when young women were not getting into broadcast journalism," The Late Show's David Letterman said. "Well, Barbara Walters changed all that, and I think the same can be said for show business and Joan Rivers."

Walters, who once considered Rivers a rival, honored the late comedienne in a no-holds-barred essay that she shared with The New York Daily News. "I can't remember a time when I didn't know Joan Rivers.as we had been friends for decades," the TV journalist wrote. »
