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 »

Brian Williams dropped his latest single on Monday night, a Jimmy Fallon-produced remix of Snoop Dogg's classic “Gin & Juice.” Of course, Williams had no say over the matter and never actually performed the song, but that's besides the point. See video: Brian Williams Raps Snoop Dogg Compliments of ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ Fallon once again had his editors cut together footage from Williams’ “NBC Nightly News” broadcasts to make a startlingly good mashup, this time making it seem as if Williams was spitting the lyrics to the 1995 Grammy-nominated single. “It's going to take me a couple months to repay you for. »

It's another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed U.S. YouTube Channels and Katy Perry rode on a dark horse to the top. Chart Toppers Katy Perry's latest music video release of her single "Dark Horse" bumped her up from the #4 spot in the U.S. last week to the top of the charts in a very big way. The international pop star's single (which was not without its fair share of controversy, which undoubtedly added to its eight-figure view count) helped contribute to her YouTube channel's nearly 77.8 million weekly views. In second place is Jimmy Fallon and his now eponymous Tonight Show. The former star of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon had a fantastic inaugural week in his new time slot racking up over 46.5 million views in the last seven days.

There's always a time and place for nostalgia, but when it comes to movies from the 1980s, it goes beyond that. Throughout the decade, we hit cinematic milestone after cinematic milestone, with franchises being born that still resonate and fuel the box office today, some three decades removed. We can look at 2014 and see some good movies on the horizon. But when we look back at a year like 1984, its breathtaking to see how many seminal pieces of pop culture were born into existence. 1982 is sometimes called the greatest year for genre movies of all time, with an eye on science fiction. But 1984 goes maybe a step beyond that. These 12 months were jam packed with truly timeless classics. You may be awestruck staring at what came exactly 30 years ago. Nothing has quite topped it for sheer year-round, non-stop entertainment. These are 30 great movies that are turning 30 in 2014!

This time around, Fallon decided to battle it out against Paul Rudd. One can only imagine what Rudd.s musical picks would be. After seeing the past couple of battles, I realized that I couldn.t choose. But I guess that.s part of what makes it so special. You.ll get a kick »
