TV Review: ‘Full Frontal With Samantha Bee’

7 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Under Jon Stewart, “The Daily Show” had an enviable track record in developing talent, with many of the baby birds flying off to bigger solo ventures. Enter Samantha Bee, a bright light as a correspondent, who makes a relatively easy leap into the unfortunately named “Full Frontal,” a weekly half-hour on TBS. Although somewhat misleadingly billed as breaking up the late-night boys club (she actually airs in primetime, before “Conan”), Bee delivered a promising and pointed debut, demonstrating that when it comes to political satire, she can sting with the best of them.

Introduced with a multi-network launch on the Turner properties, “Full Frontal” doesn’t exactly try to reinvent the wheel. Indeed, about the only difference between her one-woman-with-clips shtick and that of John Oliver’s HBO program is that he sits, while she stands.

Still, a show like this is defined by its zingers, and as Bee noted near the outset, »

Conan O'Brien's 'Clueless Gamer' Super Bowl edition is back

5 February 2016 8:40 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Conan O'Brien's Super Bowl edition of "Clueless Gamer" is back, which means it's now a Super Bowl tradition, like the Puppy Bowl and being let down by the commercials.  Last year, Conan, New England Patriots' Rob Gronkowski and Seattle Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch played "Mortal Kombat X" in a Marriott conference room. This year, Conan had Carolina Panthers' Josh Norman and Denver Broncos' Von Miller play "Doom" in a Marriott conference room. Conan welcomed Miller, even though, he claimed, Miller made his daughter cry when he tackled Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady all those times in the Afc Championship game. (It's very likely that it was actually Pats fan and Boston native Conan who did the crying.)  Watch as Conan, Norman and Miller chainsaw demons apart and punch their heads off, talk about fashion, sip wine, plan organic chicken farm ad campaigns, and enjoy the company of a special guest star. »

Marshawn Lynch Returns to Play ‘Doom’ on Conan’s ‘Clueless Gamer’ (Video)

5 February 2016 6:32 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Von Miller and Josh Norman are used to killing offenses. On Thursday’s edition of Conan O’Brien‘s “Clueless Gamer,” they killed a ton of demons via video game “Doom.” The eponymous “Conan” host tried to get to know the fellas a little better over a bottle of pinot noir, some chicken talk, and an improv game. Two-thirds of those attempts proved to be total busts, so Conan called in an old friend that can relate to the NFL stars a bit better. Marshawn Lynch, star of last Super Bowl’s “Clueless Gamer,” went Beast Mode on the pixeled beasts this time around. »

Josh Brolin Says He's Starring With Jessica Chastain In A Movie About George Jones & Tammy Wynette

4 February 2016 2:26 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There has been no shortage of country music biopics, with Loretta Lynn ("Coal Miner's Daughter"), Patsy Cline ("Sweet Dreams"), Hank Williams ("Your Cheatin' Heart," the upcoming "I Saw The Light"), and Johnny Cash ("Walk The Line") among those getting the big screen treatment. And another project is brewing that could bring two more legends to the multiplex. On a recent stop on "Conan," Josh Brolin revealed that he'll star in a movie with Jessica Chastain about George Jones and Tammy Wynette. "I have a bit of a past and when they were trying to figure out who might be best able to best play George Jones, they thought, ‘What about Brolin? Who’s been to jail in the last 10 years? Let’s pick Brolin!’” the actor quipped. Read More: Review: Coen Brothers' 'Hail, Caesar!'

Watch Conan O'Brien Cover White Stripes' 'Seven Nation Army' for Troops

4 February 2016 7:15 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Conan O'Brien recently ventured to Qatar to bring his late-night show to U.S. troops stationed in the Middle East. While there, the host performed a rendition of the White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army" alongside Grace Potter and a band of service members. Their full version of the Elephant opener, which featured new lyrics written by O'Brien to fit the audience, wasn't broadcast on Conan, but the show did provide the whole performance as a web exclusive.

Danny DeVito’s Near Death Experience on the Set of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Frank may not have appeared too often in last night’s episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, but Charlie Day did have quite the story to share about Danny DeVito when he visited Conan on Tuesday night. Over the years DeVito, who is now in his seventies, has had to pull off a lot of crazy stunts, always game to do whatever they ask of him. So when they told him that they’d be filming a scene underwater he probably didn’t even blink an eye. Day explained on Conan how this particular stunt ended up going very wrong: “We did

Oh, You Bet a Not-So-Victorious, Post-Iowa Donald J. Trump Made the Late-Night Rounds

4 February 2016 12:37 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Though Trump's anticlimactic Iowa Caucus showing ended earlier this week, you can keep reliving the highlights (and lowlights) thanks to a continuing onslaught of late-night treatment. For starters, Seth Meyers took "A Closer Look" at the Gop's results Wednesday night, concluding that nobody should ever say "Marcomentum" again, Chris Christie should watch more early-2000s Jake Gyllenhaal movies, and Trump should just stick to acceptance:Previously, Colbert and Noah had also relished in pointing out Trump's (initial) grace in defeat: Over at The Tonight Show, Fallon brought out his ever-confident, very squinty version of Trump, which knew a lot more about pop culture than you might have thought: And Conan went with the simplest and cutest approach of all: Next up: New Hampshire! »

Cindy Crawford May Have Just Announced Her Retirement From Modeling

31 January 2016 8:52 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Cindy Crawford's modeling career may be coming to an end. In an interview with United's Hemispheres Magazine this week, the iconic supermodel opened up about her coffee-table book, Becoming, which she put together as a way to celebrate her storied career and upcoming 50th birthday. Cindy, who rings in the milestone on Feb. 20, said that she is considering using the benchmark as a reason to "say goodbye" to the spotlight. "Or maybe not say goodbye," she explained, "But move on." She added: "I'm sure I'll have my picture taken for 10 more years, but not as a model anymore. And that's Ok. I've done it. I've worked with all these incredible photographers. What else do I need to do? I can't keep reinventing myself. I shouldn't have to keep proving myself. I don't want to." Cindy's announcement comes just weeks after she starred in Balmain's Spring 2016 campaign ads alongside fellow »

Robert Kazinsky on World of Warcraft: “It Saved My Life”

30 January 2016 9:13 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Actor Robert Kazinsky appeared on Conan this week, and a very personal matter came up. The Orgrim Doomhammery actor told the story of how World of Warcraft made him fat, lazy and happier than he’s ever been. After having played an extraordinarily tough guy character who was hated by basically everyone on a soap called EastEnders, Kazinsky was in a rotten place. His television character was so hated that British fans treated him horribly by hurling insults, stones or simply walking up to him in a bar after a few drinks and punching him in the face. EastEnders is serious

'Conan' Shows How No Animals Were Harmed in 'The Revenant'

28 January 2016 9:42 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"The Revenant" is up for 12 Academy Awards this year, with Leonardo DiCaprio considered *thisclose* to a lock for Best Actor. Conan O'Brien addressed the film in his "Conan" monologue, and mentioned the "pretty intense scenes with animals, particularly bears and horses." He added, "A lot of animal rights groups would normally be concerned about this, but the director went pretty far out of his way to show that no animals were harmed during the making of 'The Revenant.' You can tell when you watch the movie."

He then posted a clip from the movie, which includes a shot you probably don't recall seeing in the theater, where a horse that looks like it's about to fall off a cliff magically flies away, then tells the audience, "See? I'm fine, everybody! I die peacefully in my sleep eight years from now. So long!"

Here's the clip:

Arnold Schwarzenegger swears they're still making 'Conan The Conqueror'

27 January 2016 11:50 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One of the things I enjoyed most from my entire time at Ain't It Cool News was when we reached story #10,000 and I decided to do something special. I wrote a piece about what was at that point my most anticipated potential project, a collaboration between the Wachowskis and John Milius, King Conan: Crown Of Iron, a sequel to what I still consider one of the best films Arnold Schwarzenegger ever made. That was still before Schwarzenegger disappeared into political office for a while, and well before his comeback. So far, I've enjoyed some of the original films he's done since his return like The Last Stand and Sabotage, but I can't say I'm enjoying his sequel work. I thought Terminator Genisys was genuinely dire, and I don't like any of the Expendables movies. I hate the idea of Triplets, which Josh Gad is writing and which sounds like it's still in development. »

Abe Vigoda is known for his role as detective Phil Fish in Barney Miller, but the late actor also made regular appearances on NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien. On Tuesday's Conan, host Conan O'Brien and writer Andy Richter took a moment to honor Vigoda, who died in his sleep that morning, in a touching tribute video compiled from several clips of Vigoda's Late Night work.

Fatherhood, Eating Healthy, Refusing to Call the President ‘Chocolate Freedom’ to His Face: A More Mature Zach Galifianakis Visits Conan

27 January 2016 7:03 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

A well-groomed, palpably responsible Zach Galifianakis has been making the rounds on late-night TV recently. A Dad Galifianakis, if you will. The Baskets actor sat down with Conan to talk about his junk-food-free diet, parenting his toddler son, and politely declining the opportunity to ask President Obama if everyone calls him "Chocolate Freedom." Zach does still force his baby to kick other 2-year-old's butts and hangs out alone at construction sites, though, so you know he's still fun. (This write-up sponsored by Whipped Cream Pizza Co.) »

The Arnold is Hyped for Conan Sequel

26 January 2016 5:25 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger was recently interviewed and gave a couple of new details regarding his upcoming Conan The Barbarian sequel, such as its title, and what the film's main focus would be. Now, if you're a Conan fan, I doubt you were a huge fan of the recent reboot that stars the future Aquaman Jason Momoa (not to many people were), but hopefully you'll be excited to see Arnold's return to the franchise based off of what he had to say below.

"Conan the Conqueror, where I’m sitting on the throne for years and years - decades, and then all of the sudden, the time comes when they want to overthrow me. So that story Will be told and that movie Will be done."

The story should be very interesting to see given how up in age Arnold is, but he's shown us that he's able to get back »
