Where comedians of the first comedy boom dreamed of being Johnny Carson, the second comedy boom's late-night hosts — Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers — all grew up looking up to David Letterman. “We're all 100 percent guilty of stealing from Letterman,” Kimmel told Rolling Stone for its 2011 feature, “How Letterman Reinvented TV.” “That show changed everything, and it changed the humor of the United States more than anything I can think of." Letterman strolled in like the Eliot Ness of television — suddenly, there was an expectation that you had to raise your game or be called out on it.

Diamond Dave wore an open jean jacket with no shirt underneath, showing off a full chest tattoo. He also sported a bandage across the bridge of his nose — hopefully not a sign of backstage

Sushi and coffee and cheese, oh my! Zooey Deschanel can't wait to give birth — not just because she wants to meet her little son or daughter-to-be, but also because she wants to indulge in all the foods you're not supposed to eat when you're pregnant.

The Sweet 16 portion of the Ncaa men’s basketball tournament kicks off on Thursday as March Madness rolls on, and Jimmy Kimmel found a lot of people who know nothing about it willing to weigh in during the latest edition of “Lie Witness News.” One woman who “loves basketball” said she was rooting for University of Phoenix to topple rival online educator DeVry, and thought “Fresno Cosmotology Academy” had a shot at winning the entire tournament. It only got more ridiculous from there. See video: Jimmy Kimmel Tells People ‘Godzilla’ Is Based on a True Story, Too Many Believe Him One young woman. »
