27 August 2015 11:28 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Stephen Colbert's upcoming gig as host of The Late Show certainly won't be the first time we've seen the comedian's face on television, but it's just the beginning of our introduction to the "real Stephen Colbert." "We've got a series of field pieces, packages that are ways for me to try to figure out who that is, as if I don't know who I am," the 51-year-old talk show host, who appeared in character on The Colbert Report for 10 seasons, tells Time magazine. "The unexamined life can be extremely enjoyable, and who knows if I do know who I am. We're going to see whether I do...We're doing a series called 'Who Am Me?'" Colbert covers the »

Jimmy Fallon’s Mishaps Magnified in Late-Night TV Fishbowl

25 August 2015 6:59 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A chipped tooth won’t derail NBC’s vaunted “Tonight Show,” but it has created plenty of chatter among people obsessed with the inner workings of late-night TV.

Since taking over “Tonight” in February 2014, Jimmy Fallon has proven himself to be dynamic, creative, hard-charging and largely impossible to defeat in the ratings. He has brought new energy to one of TV’s most durable formats by getting guests to play games, take part in skits and show off hidden talents. But he has also demonstrated a different quality: He’s prone to accidents.

Fallon late last week disclosed via Twitter and Instagram that he had inadvertently chipped a tooth trying to open a tube of medication for his finger. That finger was nearly lost in June when Fallon took a tumble at home and snagged the digit thanks to a ring getting caught on a piece of furniture, requiring emergency surgery. »

20 Questions That Stephen Colbert Should Ask Jeb Bush on The Late Show

24 August 2015 3:50 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Stephen Colbert sure has a doozy of a guest lineup for his first week at The Late Show. Because really, George Clooney and Amy Schumer? That's impressive. Now that the early booking is all complete it's time for Colbert and his team to start preparing for the interviews. We're sure he's got several of the guests down—you could pass all five episodes just talking to Clooney about his beloved Casamigos tequila. But there's another attendee who's a bit of a quagmire; that would be none other than Jeb Bush. Ol' Jebsters is going to be joining for the premiere episode (that is, if Clooney can pipe down about that tequila quickly enough) and it's sure to be a doozy of an »

Stephen Colbert: Will 'Late Show' promos help him win Emmy for 'The Colbert Report'?

24 August 2015 11:47 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Even though Stephen Colbert signed off "Colbert Report" way back in December, he's still predicted to win the Emmy for Best Variety Talk Series thanks, no doubt, to those relentless promos and billboards touting his brand new CBS talker "Late Show with Stephen Colbert." Could the intense marketing for his new series help remind voters how much they liked him on his old show? -Break- Jimmy Kimmel's Emmys quest: Can he dethrone Jon Stewart & Stephen Colbert? Currently, "Colbert Report" is ranked first in our Emmy predictions center, just ahead of two other shows that are no longer on the air: "Late Show with David Letterman" and "Daily Show with Jon Stewart." The other three contenders are continuing series: "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver," "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

John Oliver argued for stronger Lgbt anti-discrimination laws in the U.S. on Sunday's Last Week Tonight.

The late show host started out the segment with a discussion on how far the country has come on gay marriage, pointing to John Kasich's recent answer at the Gop debate, where he said he would attend a gay wedding. "A gay wedding just got applause at a Republican debate," said Oliver. "Add that to the things that would have been considered unthinkable in

See Stephen Colbert Impersonate Mick Jagger for Howard Stern

18 August 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Stephen Colbert wowed Howard Stern with a rendition of "Brown Sugar" and immaculate impersonation of Mick Jagger's dance moves during an appearance on The Howard Stern Show Tuesday, on Stern's SiriusXM channel Howard 100.

The song-and-dance routine was prompted by Stern's question about a Rolling Stones cover band Colbert fronted when he was younger. The Late Show host-to-be immediately broke off a few slick-footed dance moves before telling Stern: "We were called Shot in the Dark — we called ourselves 'A Shit in the Dark' because we sucked so badly."

Will 'Last Week Tonight' televangelist controversy help or hurt John Oliver at Emmys?

17 August 2015 7:36 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Just hours before Emmy voting began, John Oliver igninted a controversy on his HBO show "Last Week Tonight." This savvy satirist turned his attention to televangelists. He charged them with being "churches that exploit people’s faith for monetary gain.” And to drive home his point, he set up his own church -- Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption -- with just one purpose: to collect money. But don't worry: all of the donations will be turned over to Doctors Without Borders, "which provides emergency medical aid in places where it is needed most.” -Break- Two seasons in, this Brit has been a hit with viewers and Emmy voters, who nominated "Last Week Tonight" for Best Variety Talk Series. Currently, it is ranked fourth in our predictions center, behind three shows that are no longer on the air: "The Colbert Report," "Late Show with David Letterman" and "The Daily Show.&quot. »

Latenight Battle: Will Emmy Voters Honor the Departed or Award Newcomers?

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

The competition for Emmy glory among latenight talkshows was certain to be fierce this year, given all the comings and goings in the sector. But the Television Academy’s rule changes have added even more heat to the race.

The Academy split its former variety, comedy or music series category into two sections — one for variety talk and another for variety sketch. That made room in the talk sector for more contenders, because “Saturday Night Live” and “Portlandia” had been perennial nominees in recent years. Now competition amounts to a tug-of-war between departing favorites and younger hot shots.

The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” and CBS’ “Late Show With David Letterman” were showered with long and loving sendoffs. “Daily Show” has dominated the category — its 10-year winning streak was snapped last year by “The Colbert Report” — but “Late Show” had not landed a nom for variety series since 2009.
