This James Corden Clip Is a Very Good Counterpoint to That Grumpy Conan Writer

21 April 2015 9:38 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This weekend, Conan writer Andrés du Bouchet went on his Matt Albie high horse about the current state of late-night comedy, taking aim at the "games and lip-syncing and nostalgia and karaoke" that increasingly fill the airwaves after 11:30. As if on cue, Monday night brought James Corden with a perfect example of what du Bouchet was talking about. Alongside celebrity guests Tony Hale, Rosario Dawson, and Sharon Osbourne, Corden turned his Late Late Show audience into a giant game of Guess Who, and ... well, that was basically it. No jokes, just four minutes of famous people playing a childhood game. But guess what — it was pretty great, a charming, inventive idea that takes just as much creativity as a solid monologue punch line.  »

Late-night TV is alive and kicking, despite what the purists say | Brian Moylan

21 April 2015 7:55 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A top writer for Conan O’Brien ranted on Twitter about how late-night needed a ‘severe motherfucking shakeup’ – but the format is changing, and for the better

There are certain forms of art that our society has deemed so exemplary that they must be saved at all cost. The symphony, the opera, and the ballet are treated more like charities – with wealthy patrons and huge endowments – than entertainment. Poetry only exists thanks to the support of academia and a handful of small literary prizes. And mime? Well, everyone sort of wishes that would just die.

However, one of those protected art forms is not comedy, no matter how much some people think it should be. One of those is Conan writer Andrés du Bouchet, who went on a Twitter screed last week about the state of comedy and late-night television. “Comedy in 2015 needs a severe motherfucking shakeup. No celebrities, no parodies, »

Conan O'Brien Reminds Writer to Focus on Their Own Show After Scribe's Rant About ''Prom King Comedy''

20 April 2015 6:13 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Apparently there's someone who wouldn't mind another round of late-night wars. Conan O'Brien took to Twitter yesterday to wrist-slap one of his writers after the scribe in question went on a since-deleted rant about what in his eyes is the sorry state of comedy, from what sounded like Conan's competitors in late-night TV to the lip sync battles we've grown to love to the A-lister-packed sketches regularly employed by the likes of Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel. And, quite often, Conan O'Brien. "Comedy in 2015 needs a severe motherf--king shakeup," wrote Andrés du Bouchet. "No celebrities, no parodies, no pranks, no mash-ups or hashtag wars. I'm »

Is Jimmy Fallon's Game Show Version of Late Night Ruining Comedy?

Read More: Review: 'Veep' Season 4 Episode 2, 'East Wing,' Starts a Guessing Game Last week, "Conan" writer Andres du Bouchet went on a moderate Twitter rant about the deplorable state of late night comedy. Though his tweets have since been removed, his boss, Conan O'Brien, has responded, and most people still don't know who du Bouchet is, let alone how to pronounce his name, the outcry started a debate among comedy fans. Were his complaints about the celebrity-driven, "Prom King Comedy" state of late night valid? In the seventh episode of Indiewire's Very Good TV Podcast, TV Editor Liz Shannon Miller and TV Critic Ben Travers tackled the issue to the best of their abilities (both have been slightly hampered by colds, and the recording atmosphere was less than welcoming this week).

Get your fix of indignation below, and stay posted for outrage updates throughout the week. "Conan" writer Andrés du Bouchet took down late-night hosts Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, James Corden and others (though he didn't name any of them) in a since-deleted late-night/early morning Twitter rant about the state of late-night television over the weekend -- and now he's being put in check by his boss. "Comedy in 2015 needs a severe motherfucking shakeup. No celebrities, no parodies, no pranks, no mash-ups or hashtag wars...and shove your lip-synching up your ass," tweeted the writer and comedian on Friday, before continuing: "Prom King Comedy.

Conan O’Brien Tweet Tells His Ranting Writer To Spend More Time Making Show Funnier

Three days after one of his writers took to Twitter to rant about the state of late-night comedy, Conan O’Brien posted a sharp-edged retort: Andres du Bouchet, who has worked for O’Brien in various shows since 2008, posted several tweets Thursday, ranting about what he called “Prom King Comedy,” which is, he posted, “what I call all this s***.

Conan O’Brien Rips Staff Writer Over Expletive-Filled Twitter Tirade on State of Late Night TV

19 April 2015 4:52 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Conan O’Brien blasted one of his show writers Sunday for sending a series of sharp and nasty messages on what he saw as the dismal state of late night television. “I wish one of my writers would focus on making my show funnier instead of tweeting stupid things about the state of late night comedy,” the TBS show host  tweeted. O’Brien was referring to Andres du Bouchet, a writer for the famously red-haired comedian’s show, who took to Twitter on Thursday with a barrage of scathing messages.

‘House of Cards’ Would be Banned by Barney Frank Because It’s ‘Inaccurate, Misleading’ (Video)

17 April 2015 7:26 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Sorry, Netflix — Barney Frank is not subscribing for the fourth season of “House of Cards.” The former member of the U.S. House of Representatives told Conan O’Brien on Thursday that the streaming drama is his least favorite TV representation of domestic politics. “I’m a great believer in free speech,” Frank told the TBS host, “but if I was going to make an exception, I would ban ‘House of Cards’ from being shown.” Also Read: Ice Cube ‘About to Kick Somebody’s Ass’ at DirecTV, TWC Over Dodgers TV Carriage Dispute (Video) “It is the most inaccurate, misleading, »

Ice Cube ‘About to Kick Somebody’s Ass’ at DirecTV, TWC Over Dodgers TV Carriage Dispute (Video)

Ice Cube is ready to settle the L.A. Dodgers TV carriage dispute the old-fashioned way. “I’m about to kick somebody’s ass,” Cube said on “Conan” Wednesday. “It’s DirecTV and Time-Warner Cable… Y’all business men. Do business!” “You guys are haggling over a couple dollars here and there,” Cube said. “You’re going to lose a whole generation of fans.” See Photos: 43 Summer Movies on Our Radar: From ‘Avengers,’ ‘Jurassic World’ to ‘Magic Mike Xxl’ The dispute stems from the Time-Warner agreement granting the cable provider the rights to Dodgers TV coverage for 25 years beginning in 2014.

Ice Cube Is Rightfully Proud of ‘Bye, Felicia’

16 April 2015 6:10 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Twenty years ago this month, Friday came out. Unsurprisingly, Ice Cube is really proud of that fact. Last night, he talked about the anniversary on Conan, wistfully remembering a certain quote that has since swept the nation. He also mentioned that for alliterative reasons, the line started out as "Farewell, Felicia." Then, to be more casual, it was rewritten to "bye, Belicia," but then they remembered that wasn't the character's name, and "bye, Felicia" was born! Hollywood's crazy.  »

Warning: These Sexy, Racy Charlie Hunnam Moments Are Not For the Faint of Heart

15 April 2015 3:10 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

If all the sexy Charlie Hunnam pictures out there are any indication, it's clear that he looks good from every angle - but there's one angle that really stands out. Thanks to the Sons of Anarchy opening sequence, which features the actor's back, there are a whole lot of beautiful pictures and GIFs of Charlie's backside on the Internet. Since he recently celebrated his 35th birthday and was spotted on the Knights of the Roundtable set, we're adding to our long list of all things Charlie Hunnam with this superhot ode to his back and his butt, including Conan's hilarious video tribute and all the steamy Sons of Anarchy GIFs you can handle. And on that note, warning: Nsfw. »

Best of Late Night TV: Jon Cryer Recreates Duckie's 'Pretty in Pink' Dance, a Toast to 'Justified' (Video)

15 April 2015 12:00 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.

Jon Cryer, Grace Helbig, and Freida Pinto were on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" Tuesday night. Jon, aka Duckie, did a "Pretty in Pink" routine with James. They recreated his record store dance to Otis Redding's "Try a Little Tenderness," and even took it into the audience. Jimmy Fallon must be biting his fingernails over these fun bits -- especially since "The Tonight Show" is on repeats this week and James is having a blast. Here's the new "Pretty in Pink" dance and the original from the movie: In other "Late Late Show" news, the group talked about Uber. Freida has lived in L.A. for three years now, »

Actors You Forgot Tried Rapping

14 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Anne Hathaway just killed Miley’s “Wrecking Ball” on Lip Sync Battle, but did you know she has a hip-hop past? Hathaway busted out her own rap during an appearance on Conan in 2011 (“in the style of Lil Wayne“) — and she’s not the first actor to spit rhymes. Tom Hanks and Gwyneth Paltrow have each tried it (for better or for worse), and Brian Austin Green and Scott Caan have both had underwhelming music careers. See, the beauty of hearing actors rap is that you never truly know what you’re going to get. We’ve know what happens when rappers make the move to TV and film, but here are all of the stars you forgot tried to bust a rhyme for real.

David Letterman Likely To Exit ‘Late Show’ In Low-Key Fashion

13 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

David Letterman is readying an exit from his latenight perch at CBS’ “Late Show” that will play down the hype associated with the event, according to people familiar with the matter, and instead focus on his work on the program he has broadcast for decades.

As the veteran host enters his last six weeks at the helm of the program, CBS has unveiled a roster of celebrities slated to appear. The names include George Clooney, Oprah Winfrey, Jerry Seinfeld, Howard Stern, Julia Roberts, Robert Downey Jr., Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Tom Hanks, Jack Hanna and Scarlett Johansson. CBS promised “many more names to be announced in the coming weeks.” Bill Murray, the actor and former “Saturday Night Live” cast member who was Letterman’s first guest when he started “The Late Show” at CBS as well as “Late Night” at NBC, is also expected to return to the program, though »

Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch Review | The Thorn of Camorr Returns

13 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

We find the remnants of our band stalking the pits of the Sinspire, patiently and calculatingly ascending lady luck’s ladder in Lynch’s Monte Carlo, the city-state Tal Verrar, marked on any map as the destination for the apex of high society and high stakes. The absurdity of the back in-saddle starting point exhibits the author’s greatest strength, his decisions on how to pace a novel. The cuts to the recent past, giving us the anatomy of the scheme and farther back to moments transpiring in the direct aftermath of The Lies of Locke Lamora  are perfectly placed, once again functioning as a new door to open just before the occupied space stagnates. You seem to never be anywhere but where you want to be, Lynch just doesn’t let you in on the fact until a chapter later, and the reader isn’t sprinting or running a »

Watch What 'Game of Thrones' Looks Like as a Kids Cartoon

10 April 2015 6:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Game of Thrones is arguably one of the most popular shows on TV today, with legions of devoted fans eagerly awaiting the Season 5 premiere, "The Wars to Come" on Sunday, April 12 at 9 Pm Et on HBO. Anyone who has watched the show knows it certainly isn't for the faint of heart, and most definitely not for children. But why should the young ones be left out of all the fun? For those who have ever pictured the show as a Saturday morning cartoon, you're in luck, since author George R.R. Martin has debuted a new video with the TBS talk show Conan, entitled Lil Thrones.

The humorous two-minute video still features all of the bloody beheadings, poisonings and other gruesome deaths that fans are used to, but formatted as a cheery animated show, complete with a song-and-dance routine. Beloved characters such as Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), Cersei (Lena Headey), Robb Stark »
