You Need to See Bill Hader's Amazing Impressions of His Saturday Night Live Co-Stars

26 September 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Bill Hader is one of Saturday Night Live's best impressionists...ever. The Skeleton Twins star proved that episode after episode and reminded us again on Conan. While on Conan O'Brien's talk show, Hader busted out his impressions. First, he did Fred Armisen's impression of him, and then he did his impression of Armisen. Next up: Hader's Skeleton Twins co-star Kristen Wiig, who is apparently always cold and asking if people are "going to that thing." Hader's Jason Sudeikis always chews gum...even while giving a eulogy. Doing voices runs in his family. "My wife said that when she ate dinner with my family for the first time that we all just do voices," he said. "We're not »

25 September 2014 2:58 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Tonight Show Starrring Jimmy Fallon” continues to generate strong year-over-year ratings gains for NBC, teaming with “Late Night with Seth Meyers” as the net dominated latenight in the third quarter.

Meanwhile, ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “Nightline” were both on the rise, but young-adult auds turned away from CBS’ lame-duck latenight duo of “Late Show With David Letterman” and “Late, Late Show With Craig Ferguson.”

According to Nielsen estimates for the period of June 30-Sept. 21, NBC’s “Tonight Show” ruled the 11:35 p.m. hour with an average nightly audience of 3.93 million viewers, including 1.49 million adults 18-49. It was up vs. the Jay Leno-hosted “Tonight” of a year ago by 41% in the demo and 13% in overall audience.

ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” ran second in both categories, rising 2% in adults 18-49 (to 727,000) and 11% in total viewers (to 2.34 million). This is the most-watched Q3 ever for Kimmel, whose »

IFC Renews ‘Maron’ for Season 3

16 September 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

IFC has renewed Marc Maron’s comedy series “Maron” for season three. Production on 13 new half-hour episodes will begin this fall, and the show will return to IFC in the spring of 2015.

Each episode of the comedy offers a fictionalized look at Marc’s life, chronicling the man’s misguided attempts to grow.

“Usually Marc has a hard time maintaining long-term relationships, but luckily not with us,” said Jennifer Caserta, president of IFC. “He’s committed to bringing his wry humor and refreshing perspective back to IFC for a third season.”

“I am very proud of both seasons of the show and thrilled we’re doing another one,” said Maron. “Through all the episodes I can see the growth and evolution of the character, writing and comedy. I’m excited about getting back into the process. The character of Maron needs some work on and off screen and fortunately that’s what drives the show. »

Kim Kardashian to Her SNL Impressionist: ‘Do We Really Sound Like That?’

16 September 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

On SNL, Nasim Pedrad was probably best known for playing Kim Kardashian (sorry, Bedelia). Her impression became so well-known that it got back to Kim herself. Last night on Conan, Pedrad talked about meeting Kim and what Kim asked her. Namely, Kim wanted to know if that's what she really sounded like. She wasn't curious, however, if she actually talked about her butt that much. That she knew. Knew to the core of her. »

Best of Late Night TV: Barbra Streisand Duets, Ike Barinholtz's Obama Impression, Jane Fonda's Breasts (Video)

16 September 2014 12:35 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Music legend Barbra Streisand made her triumphant return to late night television with her first appearance on "The Tonight Show" in more than 50 years. Streisand was promoting her new album of duets, "Partners," and host Jimmy Fallon stood in for several of said partners to help Babs perform a medley. Fallon impersonated Elvis, Blake Shelton, and Michael Buble, while Streisand remained her fabulous self.

Later, Streisand sat down with Fallon (who let her sit behind the desk in honor of her milestone appearance), where she critiqued his musical abilities. "Do you really want to be a singer?" Babs asked, a note of incredulity in her voice. "I wouldn't quit your night job. »

A version of this story first appeared in the Sept. 19 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Rob Ashe's daughter was 4 days old when he first saw the word "arthrogryposis," written on her incubator in the Nicu. Elliot, now 4, had been born with severe contraction in her major joints, resulting in extremely low muscle tone. Only one in 3,000 newborns has the condition. "There still isn't a ton of research," says Ashe, an Emmy-nominated editor on TBS' Conan. Geneticist Dr. Judith G.
