Stephen Colbert Interviews Eminem on Michigan Public Access Show: ‘This Is Really F–king Weird’ (Video)

11 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Residents of Monroe, Michigan (population: 20,733) got a surprise on Monday night when Stephen Colbert guest hosted “Only In Monroe” on Monroe Public Access Cable Television (Mpact). “Welcome to another edition of ‘Only In Monroe,'” said Colbert as he watered fake plants on set. “I’m Stephen Colbert filling in for your usual hosts Michelle Bowman and Kaye Lani Rae Rafko Wilson. I’m not sure how many people that is, but none of them could be here tonight.” Colbert, who succeeds David Letterman as host of CBS’ “The Late Show” in September, went on to thank the tiny Michigan public access station. »

Stephen Colbert Talks Scotus' Marriage Equality Ruling, Mocks Antonin Scalia's Fortune Cookie Line—Watch!

28 June 2015 12:22 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Stephen Colbert is back Stephen Colbert-ing gloriously even before he makes his TV debut this September as the new host of The Late Show following David Letterman's departure. His latest target? The Supreme Court justices who opposed the decision to legalize gay marriage. On Friday, five out of nine of them ruled that the U.S. Constitution gives same-sex couples the right to wed and that all 50 states are prohibited from banning such marriages. "Of course, not everyone's celebrating," Colbert, 51, said in a video posted on the new website of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and on the series' YouTube page on Friday, naming four of the nine Supreme Court justices who are »

Why Seth Meyers Is the Late Night Successor to Letterman and Stewart

26 June 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Late Night TV landscape—much like the television landscape in general—is going through a pretty intense transformation at the moment. Come this August, the “oldest” regular program in late night will be Jimmy Kimmel Live, which launched in 2003. The Tonight Show Wars finally came to a close (again) in February 2014 when Jay Leno stepped down a second time, making way for Jimmy Fallon to take over the established franchise. And somewhat fittingly, David Letterman felt it was time to retire just over a year later, bringing Late Show with David Letterman to a close this past May. Letterman’s loss was the most striking, not only because Late Show paved the way for a new kind of comedy on late night television, but also Letterman’s interview skills/style was unrivaled. His somewhat prickly personality made for some of the most fascinating and entertaining interactions in all of television, »

Upfront 2015: CBS, ABC, NBC Start to Sell Amid Pricing Pressure

24 June 2015 1:01 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

TV’s annual upfront market has begun to move in earnest, but the networks are ceding some ground to Madison Avenue in the process.

CBS, ABC and NBC have all begun to secure advance advertising commitments as part of the market for commercial time on TV, according to media-buying executives and other people familiar with the pace of negotiations. These executives suggest the three networks are all jockeying for increases in the cost of reaching 1,000 viewers — a measure also known as a Cpm that is central to these annual talks — in the range of 2% to 5%.

The numbers suggest the TV networks continue to face pressures from advertisers that are exploring new opportunities to sponsor new kinds of media, including streaming video. For the fourth consecutive year, advertisers are lobbying to narrow the rate of increase they pay, and are, by several accounts, succeeding. In 2014, CBS secured a Cpm increase of »

David Letterman's Set Finds a New Home on The Chris Gethard Show!

24 June 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Everyone, rest at ease! The set from The Late Show With David Letterman has been saved from demolition. It now rests in the hands of Fusion's The Chris Gethard Show. The reproductions of the George Washington Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge were unveiled Tuesday afternoon during a live stream. Although the heroic gesture was exciting in it of itself, the saved sets served another important function: They were the backdrop for one of three weddings the host put on alongside Will Ferrell, per A.V. Club. Sadly enough, not all of David Letterman's set was salvaged, as members of the crew were seen tearing apart the set and throwing the pieces in the dumpster outside of the Ed Sullivan Theater.

Whoopi Goldberg wants to star in a Wes Anderson movie: 'Give my resume to him'

21 June 2015 3:53 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Whoopi Goldberg has made a formal request to appear in a Wes Anderson film - by handing her resume to actor Jason Schwartzman.

The Oscar-winning actress was speaking to Schwartzman, a regular in Anderson's films, on Us talk show The View when she brought out her CV.

She was also keen to make a point to Anderson, stating that his films should feature more "folks of colour".

"I want to do this right," she said to Schwartzman, "because you know I love all the Wes Anderson movies and that you starred in like, almost all of them - Grand Budapest Hotel and Moonrise Kingdom and Rushmore and all of those.

"So, I noticed there's not a lot of folks of colour, and I thought I would like to give you my resume to give to Wes Anderson and just to let him know I'm available. As you see, I've interned on The Late Show. »

Brian Williams Apologizes: ‘I Said Things That Weren’t True’

19 June 2015 4:14 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC sent its best-known morning-news anchor, Matt Lauer, to grill its best-known evening-news host, Brian Williams, in an exchange on its popular “Today” that was by turns awkward, dramatic and surreal – and aimed at easing Williams back into acceptance in a daytime perch at a sister cable outlet.

Matt Lauer, in an interview he told “Today” viewers had “no conditions or guidelines” placed on it, pressed now-demoted anchor Brian Williams hard for the real reasons why he had, over the years, embellished stories of his reporting exploits. In return, Williams offered excuses, but never really managed to cough up an explanation.

“It had to have been ego that made me think I had to be sharper, funnier, quicker than anybody else,” Williams said in a taped interview that was shown in two segments on Thursday morning’s “Today.”  Yet when Lauer offered the newsman, now set to embark upon a »

Brian Williams Investigation Results Short on Detail

18 June 2015 11:29 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Thanks to his many appearances on latenight programs and willingness to serve as a guest host at private events over the years, Brian Williams developed obvious skills as a raconteur. But those abilities may have distracted him from the obligations he had as the anchor of the nation’s most-watched newscast, an NBCUniversal investigation has found.

NBCUniversal disclosed Williams “made a number of inaccurate statements about his own role and experiences covering events in the field,” the company said in a statement Thursday. His exaggerations “did not for the most part occur on NBC News platforms or in the immediate aftermath of the news events,” the company said, without citing the actual on-air instances when Williams misled his audience. Williams largely made outsize claims ” on late-night programs and during public appearances, usually years after the news events in question.”

The result? Williams will not return to the anchor chair at »

In Latenight Emmy Race, Letterman’s Swan Song Aims for High Notes

17 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There’s been a remarkable consistency among variety series Emmy candidates, starting with Comedy Central’s powerhouse pair. Stephen Colbert’s “The Colbert Report” has enjoyed back-to-back wins, while Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show” took top honors in 2012 and the previous nine years.

They keep going up against HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” now at 10 consecutive nominations, and NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” in the mix through breakthrough and routine seasons alike.

Then there are the network Jimmys: NBC’s Fallon, cited in 2014 for “The Tonight Show” after two years for “Late Night,” and ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

All told, those same six comprise the lineup over the past three years. But 2015’s seismic latenight shifts, with a host of hosts having left or on their way out, could affect the Emmy battle as well.

First rumbles came from the TV Academy itself, which is instituting »

Emmys: Who Will Be Latenight TV’s New Cool Kid?

17 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If variety is the spice of life, the Emmys for variety series have been inordinately bland for the last two decades. Yet if the awards have been characterized by repetition — characteristic of an arena generally known for its stability — this year and next year’s voting actually come at a sort of crossroads, reflecting a choice between nostalgia for its past and preparing for its future.

Comedy Central has owned this category for a dozen years, with “The Daily Show” claiming the prize for a gaudy 10 straight before giving up that mantel to sibling “The Colbert Report” in 2013. That was preceded by a five-year run by “Late Show With David Letterman,” which also won in 1994, its first year of eligibility.

But now the latenight field is in the midst of a deck shuffling, with Letterman having retired, Jon Stewart about to hang up his spurs and Colbert having exited cable »

Stephen Colbert Channels Donald Trump for ‘Late Show’ Announcement (Video)

17 June 2015 8:09 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Taking a page out of Donald Trump’s playbook, Stephen Colbert announced he was making an announcement on Tuesday. “Donald Trump’s campaign for President of the United States is not just great for America, it’s great for late-night television,” Colbert said. “Donald’s Presidential campaign has inspired me, Stephen Colbert, to announce that I will still be hosting ‘The Late Show’ on CBS.” When an onlooker shouted something unintelligible from the crowd, Colbert replied, “I don’t know what you just said but I agree with you to the gates of hell. And it has to happen. So does Donald Trump. »

Colbert Pokes Fun at Political Enthusiast Donald Trump With Trump-y Announcement

16 June 2015 8:44 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Politics guy Donald Trump hugely announced his intention earlier today to try to be the 2016 Republican presidential nominee. Stephen Colbert watched and wants everyone to know that, despite Trump's announcement, he will still host The Late Show later this year in the United States of America no matter what happens. "As Donald said, I want to be, and he wants to be, a cheerleader for this broken nation," Colbert said, before saying a series of naughty things and then calling America the deadest, but greatest, nation. Also, hair. Thank you, Colbert. All hair hail, Colbert. »

Last Week On Late Night, 6/12/15: John Oliver on torture, Seinfeld on political correctness, and Chris Pratt on our minds

15 June 2015 4:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

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.

Since Dave retired and the Summer weekly talk-show break eased into Summer talk-show down time, mostly occupied by a few blockbusters, it has been better to write these posts weekly. That way, we can show only the best bits, and cut out most of the filler.

Anyway, last week on late night, John Oliver talks torture, Jurassic World cast did the late night rounds, Kimmel is in full swing with the ABC’s NBA Finals, Jerry Seinfeld stopped by Late Night, and all Late Show with David Letterman clips have vanished from the Internet…for now.

David Letterman said goodbye to more than 33 years in late-night television on May 20, but the 68-year-old former Late Show With David Letterman host can already list what he does and doesn't want as part of his retired life.
