Olivia Pope and Jimmy Kimmel are quite the pair. After seeing Thursday ratings boosts after original episodes of Scandal all season, Jimmy Kimmel Live! hit a time-slot high after the April 17 season finale of the ABC drama. TV Ratings: 'Scandal' Hits Finale High Going whole hog on Scandal tie-ins since the show returned from its midseason break in February and boasting weekly interviews with cast members, the partnership culminated with Jimmy Kimmel Live: Behind the Scandalabra. Against repeats of Tonight and The Late Show, and with an appearance from Scandal showrunner Shonda Rhimes, ABC easily ranked as the

Over at ABC‘s Jimmy Kimmel Live! this morning they’re likely celebrating with two words: “Scandal!” & “Victory!” For the first time since Jimmy Fallon took over The Tonight Show this year, the other Jimmy was the King of Late Night thanks to his Scandal Season 3 finale-themed show — though NBC’s and CBS’ late-night shows were repeats. In metered-market household results, Kimmel drew a season-high 3.4/8 rating. That beat The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’s 2.1/5 and Late Show With David Letterman‘s repeat, which drew a 2.1/5. Among adults 18-49 in the 25 Lpm market ratings, Kimmel had a 1.4/6 to Fallon’s 0.8/4 and Letterman’s 0.4/2. Last night’s Tonight Show replayed its February 20 show with First Lady Michelle Obama and Will Ferrell as guests. Other than Thursday’s show, Jkl has been in repeats all this week. Last night’s result actually is the best Jkl has done since the show’s »

While it seems more than likely that Stephen Colbert will remain in New York City when he takes the reins of "The Late Show" from retiring host David Letterman next year, the city of New Orleans is actively campaigning for Colbert and co. to move production to Louisiana instead.
In a letter to CBS head honcho Les Moonves, New Orleans mayor Mitch Landrieu asked the network to consider bringing the show to the city, citing its film-friendly policies and tax credits, as well as its popularity among high-profile Hollywood productions, including newly-crowned Best Picture winner "12 Years a Slave." Acknowledging that New York and Los Angeles are the traditional locales for late night programming, the mayor wrote that he "would like to encourage [CBS] to add New Orleans to the mix."
"Though it may seem like an unlikely fit, New Orleans and 'The Late Show' or its successor would be a great fit, »

Stephen Colbert, who will succeed David Letterman as host when he retires, will visit the "Late Show with David Letterman," Tuesday, April 22 (11:35 Pm-12:37 Am, Et/Pt) on CBS. CBS announced last week that Colbert, the host, writer and executive producer of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning "The Colbert Report," will be the next host of the "Late Show," effective when Letterman retires from the broadcast sometime in 2015. Letterman, the legendary, critically-acclaimed host of the CBS late night series for the past 21 years, announced his retirement on the show's April 3 broadcast.

There may not be an official start date yet for his new gig as David Letterman's replacement on "The Late Show," but Stephen Colbert will soon be able to introduce himself to the show's audience when he makes an appearance on the program next week.
CBS just announced that Colbert will stop by "The Late Show" next Tuesday, April 22 to chat with Letterman. It will be Colbert's first official interview since accepting the job last week.
Letterman announced his plan for retirement earlier this month, telling viewers that he would step down from the show he created when his contract expires in 2015. Colbert's name was quickly circulated as a possible replacement, and CBS announced their selection of the "Colbert Report" host only one week later.
"Simply being a guest on David Letterman's show has been a highlight of my career," Colbert said in a statement last week. "I »

It's time for the official passing of the late-night mic! Stephen Colbert, who will succeed David Letterman when he retires in 2015, will join the talk-show legend on The Late Show, CBS announced on Tuesday. Letterman will welcome his late-night protégé to the CBS stage Tuesday, April 22 for their first sit-down since the news was announced that Colbert would be the next host of Late Night.

Updated Throughout: CBS just announced that Stephen Colbert will pay a visit to the guy he’s replacing on Late Show With David Letterman a week from today, Tuesday, April 22. No word in re whether the two men will address the “covert assault on traditional American values” that CBS’ succession plans for its late-night franchise represents. That’s how Rush Limbaugh described it when CBS announced last week. Today, however, Limbaugh homed in on the “symbolic symbolism cover” that is Colbert’s Catholicism. “All these leftists, they fall back on their devout Catholicism, but it doesn’t mean anything,” he said, referencing House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Dick Durbin – and Comedy Central comic Colbert. Limbaugh said he wanted to address the situation “before this gets out of hand — and maybe it already is.” Related: CBS’ Stephen Colbert Hire Shakes Up Late Night — And Far Right “If Colbert’s a »

Los Angeles (AP) — Stephen Colbert will be paying a visit to CBS' "Late Show," his future home. The network said Tuesday that Colbert will be a guest on "Late Show with David Letterman" on April 22. Last week, the network announced that the host of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" will succeed Letterman on "Late Show" next year. Letterman, who has hosted the late-night program for more than two decades, said earlier this month that he will retire sometime in 2015. Copyright © 2014 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. »

During this year’s Super Bowl telecast, Stephen Colbert held forth in a glitzy commercial, and proved himself to be quite the pistachio salesman. Soon, he’ll have a bigger nut to crack.
At some point in 2015, Colbert will inherit the desk at CBS’ “Late Show” from David Letterman — and take on the burden of helping the Eye poke its rivals in the latenight wars.
He’s getting a delayed start in the race against his primary competition on NBC and ABC, but he enters with two key advantages: a strong following among young men, and a track record of weaving successful (and funny) brand integrations into his show.
Colbert’s segue to CBS completes the youth movement in latenight sparked in early 2013 by ABC’s decision to move “Jimmy Kimmel Live” up to the big leagues of the 11:35 slot in early 2013. NBC countered by installing Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” in February. »

If you subscribe to the notion that TBS is Conan O’Brien’s Isle of Elba, then David Letterman’s pending retirement may have seemed like the perfect opportunity for Coco to rise again on network television, righting the wrongs done to him back in 2010 when NBC took The Tonight Show away from him.
It would have been the perfect story: the people’s champion, rising then falling and rising again to glory. The trouble is, Stephen Colbert quickly snatched up the Late Show job and O’Brien never ...

This week on The Collision, we talk about the changing face of late night television. Leading off with a discussion about Stephen Colbert replacing David Letterman as a host of The Late Show, we then continue to look at how late night has changed over the decades, turned into "morning after" viewing with clips and sketches geared towards clicks on the internet, the attitude and personality of late night hosts, and more.

Conan O’Brien wasn't up to take over The Late Show, he told the Associated Press. "I'm very happy where I am," said the former Tonight Show host. He gave his blessing to CBS's new hire (and onetime dance rival) saying, "I love Stephen. Stephen is great. I'm a huge fan of his as a comic and a human being. I think it’s fantastic and I’m really glad he got the job, and I look forward to seeing his show." O'Brien will be at the helm of the upcoming MTV Movie Awards and, according to him, we have lots of fire displays, a new record, and some Kate Upton leering to look forward to. Should be swell! »

Last night on CBS’s The Late Show, Lindsay Lohan talked to David Letterman about the damage the Own docu-reality series has done to her career. The series shows the actress relapsing and battling to stay sober. But Lohan feels that it’s all misleading editing. Now, she feels that she’s not getting the roles that she deserves. Womp womp.
In other reality TV woes, Kate Gosselin is experiencing her own problems with The Celebrity Apprentice. The mother has spent more time with her new boyfriend/ex-bodyguard rather than fellow cast members. But maybe if she didn’t spend her time on secret hotel trysts she would have more time to bond with other stars of the show.
