George Clooney Admits He "Chased" Amal For "Many Months" After They First Met

12 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

George Clooney was once one of Hollywood's hottest bachelors, who swore he would never get married again (he was married to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993). That is, until Amal Alamuddin (now Amal Clooney) came along. George first laid eyes on the human rights attorney at his home in Lake Como, Italy, in 2013. During a previous appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman, the 55-year-old actor revealed, "We met in Lake Como. She was a friend of a friend who came to visit and then I chased her for many months, calling and writing, those kinds of things." George also admitted to Ellen DeGeneres that "from the minute we met, we just sort of felt like we were going to be together." He ended up proposing six months later, and even though he had it all planned out, it ended up being "one of those horrible moments," he told Ellen. »

12 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Donald Trump's first 100 days in office continue to be good for Stephen Colbert's ratings.

The CBS late night host, who has been covering the new presidency aggressively, has ranked as the most watched late night talk show for the third straight week, according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings for the week ending Feb. 17.

The Late Show averaged 3 million viewers last week, extending its winning margin to 296,000 viewers. It marks the show’s largest margin of victory since Colbert’s premiere week back in September 2015.

‘Late Show With Stephen Colbert’ in Ratings Rebound Thanks to Political Climate

13 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

August was not the hottest month for Stephen Colbert. Ratings for CBS’ “The Late Show” — which had been on a steady slide since shortly after Colbert’s debut as host in 2015 — hit a new low, with the monthly total-viewer average slipping below 2 million for the first time. If its trajectory continued, Colbert’s “Late Show,” already far behind Jimmy Fallon and NBC’s “The Tonight Show,” was in danger of falling into third place in the ratings wars below ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Fallon appeared primed for a long reign as king of late night.

Six months later, Colbert has the industry watching the throne.

The former host of Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” is on a streak that just recently seemed unthinkable — three straight weeks of topping Fallon. After airing reruns the week of Jan. 23, “The Late Show” returned Jan. 30 and averaged slightly more than 2.77 million total viewers for the week, edging »

Stephen Colbert Pokes Fun at Trump's Nonexistent Sweden Incident: "Never Fjorget"

20 February 2017 6:05 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

The Late Show's Stephen Colbert was sure to honor the imaginary victims of the "Bowling Green Massacre," and he's back to do the same with the faux terror incident in Sweden.

After President Donald Trump spoke last week at a rally about "what's happening last night in Sweden," when, in fact, nothing happened, Colbert responded.

Mocking the fact that Trump seemed to have misheard or misunderstood news reported on Fox News, Colbert said, "I guess Trump only accepts intelligence reports with the logo, 'As Seen on TV.'"

"In fact, Sweden's crime rate has fallen since 2005," he »

Ben Affleck's Kid Thinks His Dad Really Is Batman!

20 February 2017 1:41 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

With all the negative press that Ben Affleck has received lately regarding his role in the Dceu, if this story doesn't put a smile on your face, I don't know what will.

Matt Damon appeared alongside Will Arnett (Lego Batman) on “The Late Show with James Corden" Thursday. Damon was asked who his favorite Batman ever was, and his reply which included the opinion of Affleck as well was, "Lego Batman." And, why not? Arnett has taken all the "darkness" of Batman and turned him into a highly funny, yet sympathetic character. Damon had this to say:

"Well, look, I actually have it on good authority that Will is actually Ben’s favorite Batman, Absolutely, absolutely. Yeah, yeah, we’re all fans of Lego Batman. I went this last weekend with my kids, and it’s just awesome."

There is however one kid that thanks his daddy is the Batman of the real world. »

Stephen Colbert Sets Live ‘Late Show’ After Trump’s Address to Congress

17 February 2017 2:50 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Stephen Colbert will host a live edition of “The Late Show” on Feb. 28, the night of President Trump’s address to Congress.

Colbert has done 14 live telecasts since taking over the “Late Show” in September 2015. The move to go live after Trump’s first address to a joint session of Congress is a bid to capitalize on the public’s interest in the unpredictable political climate and to build on “Late Show’s” ratings momentum.

“Late Show” has in the past two weeks overtaken NBC’s “The Tonight Show” for the lead in total viewership, and it has closed much of the gap in the adult 18-49 demo race. Colbert has been laser-focused on biting political humor and the daily doings of the Trump administration, which to date has been a ripe source of material.

Colbert’s guests on Feb. 28 will include actress Lisa Kudrow and former Obama White House press secretary Josh Earnest.

Watch Jimmy Fallon Mock President Trump's Insane Solo Press Conference

17 February 2017 6:56 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jimmy Fallon parodied President Trump's bizarre solo press conference with the cold-open of Thursday's Tonight Show. The comedian, decked out in his traditional orange make-up, hosted his own event, poking fun at the president's rambling statements and confrontations with reporters.

"First of all, you're all fake news," Fallon said to open the bit. "I hate you very much. And thank you for being here. Next." Later, he vowed to make Beyoncé Secretary of Labor because of her pregnancy expertise, used a tiny hand prop to drink a glass of water »

Stephen Colbert and His Take on the Donald Trump Press Conference

17 February 2017 3:51 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

While I think Jimmy Fallon gets the award for the best Late Night reenactment of Donald Trump’s press conference, I’d be a fool not to share Stephen Colbert’s analysis on The Late Show.  However, I need to stop myself here.  Is anyone else getting tired of reading this stuff?  I’m personally getting tired of typing it.  What’s more is that even though late night shows will have enough material for the next four years, guys like Stephen Colbert who you know obviously oppose Trump in a big way, have to be going home at night thinking, “what world am I

Stephen Colbert Credits Oprah for Taking Down Andrew Puzder: ‘Thank You, Lady O!’

16 February 2017 9:11 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Stephen Colbert had a lot of things to talk about on “The Late Show” last night, starting with Andrew Puzder’s decision to withdraw as Donald Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Labor. “Just to be clear, this is not a scandal,” Colbert joked. “He just wants to spend more time with Michael Flynn.” As Colbert noted, the Carl’s Jr. CEO — like many of Trump’s cabinet appointees — has a lot of baggage. According to the comedian, Puzder called his own employees “the worst of the worst” and admitted to hiring an undocumented maid, something that definitely clashes with Trump’s staunch deportation. »

Bob Odenkirk and Stephen Colbert took turns portraying each other on The Late Show on Wednesday. Odenkirk was on set to promote his upcoming movie Girlfriend's Day.

Odenkirk's Colbert was an angry, humorless comedian in a made-up film titled Late Show: The Movie. Odenkirk communicated with the audience via dismissive commands along the lines of "Shut up and sit down!" and "Clap, you pigs!" "Did everyone hear about Iran secretly testing nuclear missiles?" Odenkirk's late-night host quipped. "Who cares?"

Colbert returned with his own Odenkirk impression. Then the two men »

Stephen Colbert Remakes 'The Usual Suspects' With Trump and Putin

15 February 2017 5:45 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Who is Keyser Soze?

This time around, it's The Late Show's Stephen Colbert. The host has created his own version of the '90s film The Usual Suspects, now focused on the mystery of President Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, and the real nature of their relationship. 

In his "remake," Colbert stars as Kevin Spacey's character, reimagining the final interrogation scene of the original film when he is questioned by Chazz Palminteri's police officer character.

But when he insists that Colbert must "know something," the late-night host simply agrees.

Late-Night TV Hosts Take on Michael Flynn's Resignation, Russia Scandal

15 February 2017 7:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

National Security Adviser Michael Flynn resigned late Monday night, after that day's late-night talk shows had already been taped. But Tuesday, Trevor Noah, Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers still had plenty to say about the former Trump administration official's departure.

On The Late Show, Colbert called Flynn a "dummy, dummy, dummy" for not knowing that calls to the Russian ambassador are taped. After the audience laughed at him pretending to be Flynn and realizing he shouldn't be national security adviser, Colbert quipped, "It's funny because it's treason."

"Donald Trump immediately condemned Michael Flynn and the Russians," said Colbert, waiting a beat »
