Jimmy Fallon, Anna Kendrick, Darlene Love and The Roots Sing "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" With Classroom Instruments

For 28 years, during David Letterman's tenure on Late Night and The Late Show, Darlene Love sang her holiday hit "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)." But, after his retirement in 2015, the singer needed a new place to showcase her talents. Enter Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show.

Donald Trump Begs for an Emmy in Showtime's 'Cartoon President' Teaser

Showtime's cartoon version of Donald Trump is coming into view — and, like its Late Show inspiration, the animated president is bumbling and not terribly fit.

"Give me an Emmy," the orange interpretation pleads after crawling to a West Wing podium in a new teaser trailer for Our Cartoon President. He is then hoisted up by his inner circle, a Bush Baby-esque Jeff Sessions, fearful Jared Kushner and wincing Melania among them.

The series, from The Late Show's Stephen Colbert and Chris Licht, is set to premiere Feb. 11 before the new season of Homeland. Showtime will sample it across platforms...

Late-Night Hosts Poke Fun at FCC's Net Neutrality Vote

The Federal Communications Commission voted to repeal net neutrality protections on Thursday, and late-night television had a lot to say about it. 

"Uh, anybody here use the internet?" The Late Show's Stephen Colbert asked his audience. "It's a sad day for us web-ka-teers, us internauts," he said, while explaining that the move would repeal regulations that prevented internet providers from blocking certain websites or slowing down users' data.

William Fox couldn’t have imagined that his modest film company would get bulked up by merging with 20th Century, produce some of the highest-grossing movies of all time, and become a global empire. Here’s a look back at Fox’s long history as it prepares to merge with Disney.

Fox Studios’ East Lot on Western Avenue at Sunset in Hollywood

1915 Fox Film Corp. created by William Fox. A key element was the Fox Theatres, which went into bankruptcy in 1933 and sold to National Theatres. The company moved from New Jersey to Echo Park and then Hollywood before settling in its present location west of Beverly Hills in 1926.
