16 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

CBS' The Late Late Show With James Corden, which launched in March 2015, and Comedy Central's The Daily Show With Trevor Noah, which has aired since last September, have quickly developed a broad reach, and fans, around the world. Noah's show is currently seen in nearly 170 countries and territories via Comedy Central's growing number of international channels, program sales deals and digital and mobile distribution via the Comedy Central Play app. Sources say that this likely makes it one of the most widely distributed late-night shows right now. In comparison, in its last season hosted by Jon Stewart,

Corporate Lawyers: Best Friend To Stephen Colbert Fans?

28 July 2016 7:11 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The 2016 political conventions will be remembered by Stephen Colbert fans as the time he emerged, if briefly, from his Celebrity-Suck-Up-Interviewing-At-cbs period, and got back to doing that which he does best: thumbing his nose at authority. Among the moments that have delighted Colbert fans and the media during Rnc and DNC weeks: the return of his The Daily Show lead-in Jon Stewart, to weigh in on Donald Trump's Gop nomination, as well as the return of Stephen… »

Emmy Awards 2016: Handicapping the Top Series and Acting Races

28 July 2016 11:49 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

That sigh of relief you hear across town is from everyone who made it through the first round of the TV Academy’s Emmy voting. Now, the race begins in earnest to claim the small screen’s top trophies. We took a look at 11 key categories to break down the ones to beat, and the threats to watch out for, before voters cast their final ballots beginning Aug. 15.

Drama Series

HBO’s powerhouse “Game of Thrones” is once again the year’s most-nominated series with 23 noms (down only one from last year). It’ll be tough to beat the returning champ. Netflix’s “House of Cards” is second in overall noms for drama, with 13 (including eight for acting). The swan song season for PBS’ “Downton Abbey” nabbed 11, and though there may be some sentimental factor in voting for a series that never won top drama (it triumphed as a miniseries in its first season), don’t bet »

Can Viacom Really Stop Stephen Colbert From Playing "Stephen Colbert"?

28 July 2016 11:23 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

A popular Comedy Central personality leaves to become a CBS late-night show host only to hear Viacom assert entitlement to old material. No, not Stephen Colbert, who revealed on Wednesday that a lawyer from "another company" was claiming intellectual property over the character "Stephen Colbert" from The Colbert Report. We're talking about Craig Kilborn, who in 1998 resigned from The Daily Show to become host of CBS' Late Late Show. Jon Stewart's reign on The Daily Show rendered Kilborn's almost a forgotten relic, but before he left Comedy Central, Kilborn had a popular segment called "Five Questions," which was basically a light-hearted interrogation of

Viacom Wishes the Real Stephen Colbert Would Leave the Old Stephen Colbert Alone

28 July 2016 10:22 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Like any late-night host, Stephen Colbert has always been something of a character. Now his former employer wants to know which one it’s going to be.

Colbert for nearly a decade played a bloviating, right-wing talk-show host on Comedy Central’s “Colbert Report” to great renown – so much so that it got him a job at CBS hosting that network’s “Late Show” after David Letterman stepped down from the job. When the host revived the character last week as part of a live series of shows playing off the Republican and Democrat political conventions, he won notice from fans and critics, and, apparently, lawyers at Viacom, the owner of the cable outlet that aired his “Report.”

Colbert made mention of this fact during a live show that aired in the wee hours of Thursday morning, joking to the audience that an unnamed company with an interest in the old Colbert’s affairs had made some »

Trevor Noah On Trump’s Call For Russia To Hack DNC: “Are You [Expletive] Me?!”

27 July 2016 10:24 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The Daily Show With Trevor Noah tonight dipped its toes back into the overtly political waters forded regularly under the captaincy of former host Jon Stewart with a fiery, blunt takedown of Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump. The reason? Per tradition, Donald Trump caused no small amount of controversy earlier today during a press conference to talk about the recent hack of DNC computers and subsequent distribution via Wikileaks of highly embarrassing (though… »

Late-Night Hosts Get Political in Bid to Win Votes From Viewers

27 July 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Who would line up in an NBC waiting room for hours as the clock ticks past midnight? Dozens of people, as it turns out, all coming to the network’s New York City headquarters in a bid to watch history being made.

The crowd hunkering down at NBC’s 30 Rockefeller Center headquarters on the night of July 22 expected to see the first live broadcast in the on-air tenure of the network’s wee-hours “Late Night” franchise. The idea was to get a view of Seth Meyers making fun of that evening’s Republican National Convention on live TV quickly after Donald Trump accepted the nomination – something David Letterman, Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Fallon had never done during their time on the show. To make it happen, staffers rejiggered their routines, even bringing in extra cue-card writers  so riffs could be readied for the host as quickly as the writers, watching »

Netflix grabs Felicia Day/Patton Oswalt 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' revival

24 July 2016 2:34 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The big announcement was made at San Diego Comic-Con yesterday - Netflix will be streaming the Felicia Day and Patton Oswalt-led Mystery Science Theater 3000 revival. Creator Joel Hodgson launched a Kickstarter campaign back in 2015 which eventually gained over $5.7 million in funding from fans (just beating the previous record by the Veronica Mars film). Pretty quickly they rounded up a cast which included Day as Kinga, Oswalt as TV's Son of TV's Frank, Hampton Yount as Crow T. Robot, Baron Vaughn as Tom Servo, and Jonah Ray as host. Hodgson followed up the Netflix announcement on his Twitter by adding that Kevin Murphy, Mary Jo Pehl, and Bill Corbett would also be appearing as themselves in the next MST3K and that he would also have a cameo. "Elliott Kalan, the Emmy-winning former head writer of The Daily Show, will serve as the head writer on MST3K," reports The Hollywood Reporter, »

John Ostrander: Our Lonely Nation Turns Its Eyes To You

24 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The Republican National Convention Circus came to town last week and they made the big clown their ringmaster.

As you might guess, I am not a supporter of Donald Trump. Evidently neither is Senator Ted Cruz, who declined to get behind the party’s nominee during a nationally televised prime time speech at the Republican National Convention. That was interesting.

ComicMix is about pop culture and you certainly can examine the Rnc from that perspective. It was entertaining, in a sick way, and had more than a few surprises. It was like a Big League version of a reality show… and Trump knows about reality shows, believe me.

However, I think that the best thing coming out of the Rnc was the return of Jon Stewart. He appeared at least twice on his old buddy Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show (I’m writing this before Friday night’s show »

8 Times Jon Stewart Returned to TV After Leaving The Daily Show and Why It's Always So Awesome

22 July 2016 11:23 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jon Stewart may have said goodbye to The Daily Show, but he hasn't disappeared from TV entirely, thank goodness. The now-scruffy star signed off as host of the Comedy Central political satire series last August after 21 seasons—and 23 Emmys and has since made several spectacular cameos on the small screen, most recently on Thursday, on his old friend's The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Thursday. Stewart, who serves as an executive producer of the CBS series, offered his trademark political commentary on the 2016 presidential election—commentary his fans had wished to hear for months. And as always, he and Colbert also showcased great chemistry, which is a treat to »

Jon Stewart on The Late Show: angry and rusty – but still essential

22 July 2016 10:27 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The former Daily Show anchor took over Steven Colbert’s desk to lambast Trump’s Rnc speech and we remembered why we need him now more than ever

Jon Stewart to Republicans: stop ‘scaring the holy bejesus out of everybody’

When Jon Stewart left The Daily Show last summer, many people wondered how he could step down the year before a presidential election, when his show was always at its most vital. Now that the political contest has turned into the Hunger Games with Super Pacs, he’s probably kicking himself. Luckily Stewart has some friends in high places, so he can come out of seclusion and get a few things about the election off his chest. He did just that last night on The Late Show, where he took over Steven Colbert’s desk to lambast Donald Trump and rip Fox News a new one.

Rosie O’Donnell Narrates Donald Trump Propaganda Film Parody for ‘The Daily Show’ (Video)

22 July 2016 10:06 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Donald Trump and Rosie O’Donnell have famously clashed in the past, so “The Daily Show” recruited the comedian to narrate a parody of a propaganda film promoting the Republican presidential candidate. “Delegates viewed a short film about Trump’s life, work and overall fantastic-ness,” host Trevor Noah told his viewers on Thursday while introducing the segment that aired before Trump gave his Rnc speech. “Realizing that you may have missed this important information, we bring it to you now. Just slightly edited for clarity.” Called “The Very Very Incredible Deal,” it compares Trump’s plan to make America great again to the historical New. »

The Winners and Losers From the Republican National Convention

22 July 2016 9:28 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cleveland — The 2016 Republican National Convention was one for the books, a presidential nominating coronation like no other in recent memory.

The four-day gathering that crowned Donald Trump as the Gop’s contender for the White House — the victory for the real estate mogul and reality TV star that pundits scoffed at this time last year — was alternately kooky and chaotic. And now that the Gop fete is in the history books, here’s a look at who soared, who flopped and who heads out of Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena with some soul-searching to do.

Winners:

Trump’s children: Trump’s progeny got plenty of speaking time and were generally well-received by the crowd of about 5,000 delegates. Ivanka Trump in particular has emerged as a favorite — so much so that an “Ivanka 2024 — America’s first female president” sign was spotted in the arena.

Those missing Jon Stewart on The Daily Show this election season were in for a treat on Thursday night, when the 53-year-old comedian appeared on pal Stephen Colbert's Late Show for an epic takedown of Donald Trump's supporters.

Colbert Delivers A Live 'Daily Show With Jon Stewart' Revival To Trump Trump

22 July 2016 7:56 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Fans of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" were given a treat last night. Especially if they're favorite iteration of the show was when Jon Stewart was its host. The former host, who's largely been away from the limelight since leaving his "Daily Show" desk, literally popped up during a live telecast of "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert," and then he was given an entire segment in what felt like an overdo pop culture moment: Stewart Responds To The Rise of Donald Trump.

And what prompted this celebratory moment? For years, Stewart and Colbert have railed against Fox News and their CEO Roger Ailes. Well, amidst a sex scandal, Ailes has suddenly resigned from Fox and it looks like the two political satirists simply had to have a "Ding Dong The Wicked Witch Is Dead!" moment together.

But this time, Stewart was in studio and, after some modifications from the Late Show wardrobe department, back behind a desk delivering a scorching takedown of Fox News in what was likely a welcome sight for fans who've missed Stewart this election season.
