Let's be honest: Nasim Pedrad did a really good impression of Kim Kardashian. And for five seasons, fans couldn't stop LOLing when the Saturday Night Live veteran channeled the E! star's fashion, laugh and voice in several sketches. On Monday's Conan, the comedian finally shared with fans what it was like to meet the reality star she spent so much time poking fun at.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star managed to ask if her family "really sound like »

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. »

6 Rare Illnesses That Hollywood Has Put in the Spotlight — and 1 It Hasn't (Yet)

15 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

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. Hall, who has studied arthrogryposis extensively, had one big piece of advice for Ashe when she learned

13 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

If Mr. Burns were in attendance at the live "The Simpsons Take the Hollywood Bowl" show Friday, he might have referred to the show as "excellent."  Conan O'Brien, Weird Al, Jon Lovitz and Hank Azaria were among the high-profile stars who performed songs and talked about their involvement with the long-running Fox series. The live show, celebrating The Simpsons' 25th anniversary, continues through Sunday.

Watch Conan O’Brien Perform the Simpsons Monorail Song

13 September 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Simpsons took to the stage of the Hollywood Bowl last night to kick off a three-day series of tributes and performances in anticipation of its 26th season. Conan O'Brien got onstage to perform a classic scene from a classic episode, the monorail song (voiced by the late great Phil Hartman) from "Marge v. the Monorail." Conan's an appropriate choice considering he wrote the episode. Also in attendance was Weird Al, who performed a parody of "Jack and Diane" as "Homer and Marge." Watch the clips below, and sorry for the nosebleed seats. »

Best of Late Night TV: Jimmie Johnson's Cooler Race, Nick Offerman's College Advice, Lying Fashionistas (Video)

11 September 2014 1:47 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.

"Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon opened up his suggestion box to find a query from a fan asking him to challenge someone to a race using a beer cooler scooter -- literally, a motorized scooter built from a cooler. Fallon brought in Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson for the bit, and offered him a beer helmet for protection, though Johnson was eager to get the race over with. "I just can't wait to ... see what's inside the cooler," he told Fallon.

Another suggestion box question from a college freshman sought advice for school, which Fallon said he didn't feel qualified giving. Instead, he called upon "Parks and Recreation" star Nick Offerman, »

Watch: Find Out How Anna Faris Pranks Her Mom with Sexy Mail

10 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Chris Pratt isn't the only skilled jokester in his marriage. Wife Anna Faris knows a prank or two herself. The Mom star, 37, stopped by Conan on Tuesday to share one of her favorite practical jokes. While the actress is all about embracing the silly, her mother is a tad more conservative. Faris takes advantage of this difference by anonymously bombarding her mom's mailbox with sexy '80s postcards. The fact that Faris's family is good friends with the mailman makes this prank even better. "As he's putting the postcard into the mailbox, I see my mom envisioning that, and I can feel her getting annoyed, »

10 September 2014 12:13 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.

Surprise! On Tuesday night, Jimmy Fallon brought Britney Spears out to read off a list of the pros and cons of dating her. She's recently single -- and apparently "The Tonight Show" audience was filled with people who are already in love with her since they stood and cheered when she showed up. (Jimmy had to remind them it's *his* show.) Jimmy said they created a profile for Britney on Tinder (bio: "This better work, b-tch.") and Britney acted shocked and not too thrilled. Stay to the end to hear her "It's Britney, b-tch" line. Keith Richards was also on "The Tonight Show" and you know the man has stories. »

Look Closely: Mel Brooks' Unique Hollywood Walk of Fame Handprint

9 September 2014 2:58 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It's a rite of passage for any star of entertainment to get a spot on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The sidewalks of Tinseltown are covered with the stars, along with the imprints of their hands and feet. Just yesterday, American comedy icon Mel Brooks (writer and director of Spaceballs, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein and more) was given that very honor, and the master of laughter wasn't going to let this opportunity for what will be a more permanent joke just slip away. The comedy legend, who is actually fairly active on Twitter despite his oage, posted a picture of his imprint after he was done. Notice anything weird? Here's the image Mel Brooks posted on his Twitter, along with some other photos from BuzzFeed: I desperately need to wash my hands. pic.twitter.com/fKVl4FyMFt— Mel Brooks (@MelBrooks) September 8, 2014 And here is Brooks appearing on "Conan" shortly after, »
