Watch: David Letterman's Great 10-Minute Tribute to Robin Williams

9 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

When we wrote about the passing of Robin Williams last week, one of the things we touched on was just how incredible the comedic star was as a guest on late-night talk shows. Williams was always at his most hilariously unpredictable when he strolled onto a late-night stage, with his appearances (almost 50!) on The Late Show with David Letterman ranking among our personal favorites. The Late Show was off last week, and so host David Letterman returned on Monday to say a few words about a guy he was friends with for 38 years. Letterman's tribute lasted a little more than 10 minutes, and included some great stories about first meeting Williams at the Comedy Store when they were both just starting out. There's a tale about a Mork & Mindy cameo Letterman shouldn't have...

22 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

David Letterman gave a heartfelt tribute to Robin Williams Monday.

Best of Late Night TV: Bruce Willis's Corn Eating, Tiger Woods Plays 'Facebreakers' (Video)

19 August 2014 12:00 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.

Bruce Willis was probably on the "Late Show with David Letterman" to promote a movie like "Sin City," but he spent most of the Monday, August 18 show being a goofball. At one point, he showed Dave his hands-free corn-eating system, which is pretty flawed, as you can see when corn starts falling all over him. It's a little bit gross, but also pretty funny, especially when Dave goes in for his own bite. It looks like they're making out, but they're just jointly eating hands-free corn. Nothing odd about that! It gets even weirder when Bruce puts on his hat to illustrate how to get the butter on the corn. »

Among the clips The Late Show trotted out: a young Letterman's cameo on Mork & Mindy.

ABC’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel’ Rises in July, Routs Letterman in Demo

7 August 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC’s Jimmy Fallon remains the dominant latenight talkshow, but that hasn’t keep ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel from notching some ratings achievements of his own. And both seem to be gaining at the expense of CBS’ David Letterman, who has lost whatever momentum he had after announcing his 2015 retirement.

For the July sweep, despite facing a stronger Fallon, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” posted gains over last year in both adults 18-49 (up 10% to 729,000) and total viewers (up 12% to 2.293 million). This is the third straight year that the ABC show has posted July growth in both categories.

It’s not surprising that Kimmel has gained total viewers vs. last year, as some of the older fans of Jay Leno’s “Tonight Show” on NBC have drifted over to either Kimmel or Letterman. But the gains in 18-49 are a good sign that’s he’s connecting with more viewers in his target demo. »

Who Is James Corden? 5 Things to Know About Craig Ferguson's Reported Late Late Show Replacement

5 August 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

James Corden might just be your new Late Late Show host. The Into the Woods actor will take over hosting duties from Craig Ferguson on the CBS late night series, according to The Wrap. The Hollywood Reporter also indicates Corden is in talks to take over the series. Ferguson, who has been hosting the series since 2005, announced his exit in April 2014, just days after it was announced that Stephen Colbert would take over The Late Show when David Letterman retires. At the time of his announcement, Ferguson stressed it wasn't a Conan O'Brien-Jay Leno or Letterman-Leno situation that previously transpired as late night shows changed hands. "I'll be stepping down at the end of this year in December," »

James Corden to Replace Craig Ferguson as The Late Late Show Host

5 August 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

CBS has apparently settled on a replacement for The Late Late Show host as Craig Ferguson aims to depart the late night talk show this December.  The Wrap is reporting that English actor, comedian, and writer James Corden will take over The Late Late Show hosting duties in Ferguson’s stead, making for a somewhat surprising (and yet not surprising) choice.  Corden rose to prominence in the UK as the co-creator, co-writer, and star of the BBC sitcom Gavin & Stacey and subsequently lead the comedy play One Man, Two Guvnors, which earned him a Tony Award for its Broadway run.  Corden had a supporting role in this summer’s musical indie Begin Again and leads the upcoming Disney musical Into the Woods alongside Emily Blunt and Meryl Streep, which opens this Christmas.  More after the jump. CBS has yet to officially confirm that Corden is taking over The Late Show, »

Craig Ferguson's 'The Late Late Show' Seat Is Reportedly Going to British Comedian James Corden

5 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

CBS is facing some big changes to its late night programming lineup when longtime "The Late Show" host David Letterman retires later this year, and Stephen Colbert takes his place. Now, outgoing "Late Late Show" host Craig Ferguson, also set to depart sometime before the end of 2014, has also been replaced.

TheWrap reports that British actor, writer, and comedian James Corden is the man who will fill Ferguson's chair, though CBS and Corden's reps are staying mum on the news for now. Corden can currently be seen in the Keira Knightley-Mark Ruffao flick "Begin Again," and will star in "Into the Woods" later this year.

And Corden's impressive resume doesn't stop there. U.K. viewers know him as the creator of the hit, critically acclaimed series "Gavin & Stacey," and he also snagged a 2012 Tony award for "One Man, Two Guvnahs."

Best of Late Night TV: Julia Roberts' Face Balls and Chris Pratt's Taxidermy (Video)

1 August 2014 12:35 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.

First up is America's resident sweetheart, Julia Roberts, who dropped by "The Tonight Show" to play Face Balls with Jimmy Fallon. That's right, Face Balls, a brand-new "Tonight Show" game in which Julia and Jimmy hit giant plastic balls into each other's faces while the entire thing was caught on super-slow HD camera. As Julia put it, "this is the comedy version of '50 Shades of Grey.'"

Julia also confronted a famous Reddit dog who's completely terrified of her face, and yelled at him on camera. She might be a sweetheart, but watch your backs, puppies of the USA.

James Franco Tries Penetrating Stephen Colbert's Political Facade (Video)

31 July 2014 10:58 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Since CBS announced Stephen Colbert will inherit “The Late Show” from David Letterman,  the talk-show host has been saddled with questions about whether he plans to drop the right-wing political shtick he's famous for on Comedy Central. James Franco tried untangling that enigma on Wednesday's episode of “The Colbert Report,” but he didn't get far. As their interview about Franco's “Child of God” wound down, Colbert attempted cutting to commercial — but Franco stopped him.

James Franco Tries, Fails to Get Stephen Colbert to Break Character

It was a battle of character actors on The Colbert Report Wednesday night when James Franco tried to get host Stephen Colbert to slip out of his beloved flag-waving, gut-following alter ego by asking the host about his upcoming move to The Late Show.

James Franco Tried to Get Stephen Colbert to Break Character; It Didn’t Work

It can be argued that James Franco is never more likable than he is on The Colbert Report. Last night was no exception. The best part came at the end of his interview, when Franco asked Colbert about his upcoming move to The Late Show. However, Colbert the character isn't the one moving. Colbert's response is just another example of why we'll miss Colbert the character so much. »
