The streak is over!
After 10 consecutive Emmy wins for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart finally got upended in 2013 by its Comedy Central cohort The Colbert Report (which took home the statuette on its eighth attempt).
Related Emmys: Who Should Win Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie?
While 2014 could certainly provide Emmy obsessives with another Stewart-Vs.-Colbert showdown, there are two other veterans in the race hoping to break on through to the podium: Jimmy Kimmel Live (in the race for the third straight year) and Real Time with Bill Maher (now on »
So the big Emmys don't air until next Sunday night and at Moviefone we will have, of course, full coverage. But last night the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out, for the people that are largely responsible for making these shows that you absolutely love -- you know, the behind-the-scenes talent tasked with conceptualizing and realizing your favorite programs. Oh -- and some guest actor and actresses awards were handed out, so there's that too!
In the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category Uzo Aduba took home the prize for "Orange is the New Black." Since we are, very shamefully, one of a handful of Americans who hasn't seen a single second of "Orange in the New Black," this doesn't mean a whole lot to us, but we are very happy for her! (We promise, we'll watch soon.) For the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, the »

More Arrested Development is on the way, but not very quickly…
Appearing on Us chat show Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Will Arnett announced that the rumours of more Arrested Development are true, adding that it was Netflix’ head honchos who made the decision to revive the show again.
He did add, though, that “We don’t know when,” suggesting that talks are at a very early stage.
Further evidence about the long-rumoured fifth season is fairly sparse though, so fans will be pleased to hear this news from one of the cast.
One thing we do know is that the show is likely to return to focusing on the cast as a whole, not individual characters in their own episodes (as was the case in season four).
If you want to see the news straight from the horse's mouth, here’s the clip, which also features a bottle of pink wine, »
Ali Larter is pregnant with her second baby! The actress announced her and husband Hayes MacArthur's big news on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday. "Hey, buddy! I can't wait to meet you," Jimmy Fallon said while leaning over his desk and talking to her baby bump. Ali said she's intentionally kept her pregnancy a secret the past few months. "I've been trying to hide as much as I can, and when you're in the public eye, it's really scary in the beginning," she told Jimmy. Both stars joked about how her appearance was the perfect time to let the world know - as it turns out, she stopped by Jimmy's former show, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, the last time she was pregnant. It's been nearly four years since the actress gave birth to her first child, Theodore Hayes MacArthur. Watch the video above to »
Nina Dobrev stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night, and we definitely learned one or two new things about the star of The Vampire Diaries. First of all, she's really good at beer pong - even when it's giant. Second, she's surprisingly skilled at chugging beer. It's true: lately, we've been spending a lot of time wondering who Nina's dating, and pondering how things are going with ex-boyfriend Ian Somerhalder, and even just straight up admiring her smashing bikini body, but it's really fun just to see her letting loose and enjoying herself! Watch the hilarious video above to find out who wins. »
Disclosure and Sam Smith reunited last night to play their hit, “Latch” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Six months earlier, they performed the song on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” in their first Us TV appearance and before Fallon took over the "Tonight Show" spot. It's remarkable to see the difference in the ease with which Smith now appears before an audience. Like the “Fallon” performance, the “Kimmel” performance includes projections of white outlined animated faces, like the ones on Disclosure’s “Settle” album cover and other promotional materials, sang the song along with Smith. While the appearance is coming a bit late in “Latch’s” life span—the song has been on the Billboard Hot 100 for 19 weeks— the tune is still extremely popular: This week it returned to its previous peak, No. 7, on the Billboard Hot 100. Between Disclosure and Smith’s schedules, it probably took this long to get them »

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said that President Obama and his staff chose not to do an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Wednesday because of “more serious matters the president is dealing with on the international scene.”
TMZ reported on Monday that Obama would do a segment for the show during a trek to Los Angeles, in which he also will attend two fundraisers and speak on job training at a technical college. But ABC and Kimmel’s reps quickly denied such a booking.
Yet Earnest confirmed at the White House daily briefing that they “had been in touch with representatives from Mr. Kimmel’s show about the possibility of participating, of having the president participating, on this trip.”
“We ultimately elected not to have the president do that interview over the course of this trip, and that is at least in part related to the challenges of doing »

Late Night With Jimmy Fallon has done an exemplary job of interacting with the YouTube community, but a new video takes things to the next level. The Late Night YouTube channel has released a video in which YouTube creators take time out of VidCon to lip snyc to various popular songs. The lip syncing videos were filmed at a VidCon booth where participants were invited to burst out in fake song alongside a cardboard cutout of Jimmy Fallon. During the convention, a steady stream of YouTube creators stopped by, and the Late Night channel assembled 37 different performances in a single playlist. Two weeks after VidCon, viewers received the main attraction: A supercut that combined all of the videos into one. Most people with at least a passing interest in the YouTube community should be able to pick out a few familiar faces, and a complete list of participants is available in the video's description. »

What a nutty year it’s been in the world of TV talkers. Hosts bit the dust — some were expected; some out of the blue; one for the second time — as other hosts got promoted and handed the torch to a host of new hosts. Has the comedy-music-talk species ever occupied so many column inches over a single 12-month period?
Latenight may be, as Emily Nussbaum has charged in the New Yorker, “the most static genre on TV,” but its tectonic plates are shifting. And if a selection of media critics and Emmy watchers are right, the first consequence will be a shakeup in the nominations for variety series, virtually copied over the past decade.
Talk about static: 2012 and 2013’s slates were identical, with the TV Academy tapping “The Daily Show,” “The Colbert Report,” Bill Maher, Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon’s showcases and “Saturday Night Live.” The only difference »

Since his transition to late night shows, host Jimmy Fallon has had a number of recurring segments, which he has brought over from Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. One such segment is titled “Lip Sync Battle”, which involves Fallon and his guests performing lip sync versions of popular songs. Previous participants have included Stephen Merchant, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Paul Rudd, and Fallon brought the segment back on last night’s episode, this time competing with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Emma Stone. The full clip has now been released online, and can be seen below.

With Stephen Colbert set to be the next host of “The Late Show” and Jimmy Fallon having settled into “The Tonight Show;” we will see them go head to head in the world of network late night at some point in 2015. But long before then we are likely to see a Colbert and Fallon showdown at the upcoming Emmy Awards in the race for Best Variety Series. -Break- Dish the 'Late Show' replacement in our forums watched host. In each of the last two years, his “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” was nominated for Best Variety Series so it looks likely that he’ll bring “The Tonight Show” back as a nominee for only the second time since 2004 (in 2010 Conan O’Brien&rsquo...' »
