It began with a toothbrush. During a late-March episode of The Late Late Show With James Corden, the host reached for his coffee mug only to find an Oral-b protruding from it. "What's this? What has happened here?" he asked in a comically high voice. Bandleader Reggie Watts denied putting it there and nobody in the crew could say how it got there, until pop heartthrob Shawn Mendes walked out and owned up to it, to deafening screams in the audience.

"I must have just left it after soundcheck," he said.

Aaron Paul Wants to Appear in “Breaking Bad” Prequel, Checking In To “Bates Motel” and “Duck Dynasty”‘s Shrinking Ratings

News

The ratings for Duck Dynasty are down 40% from a year ago, but it can’t be blamed on Phil Robertson‘s homophobic and racist comments. Ratings were sliding before Robertson’s infamous GQ profile. Now I’m looking back at that interview and wondering if those comments were an attempt to drum up some publicity.

Aaron Paul says he’s in talks to join the cast of Breaking Bad prequel Better Call Saul. I have to admit, I’m intrigued at the idea of fleshing out Jesse’s “Capt’n Cook” days.

Matthew Perry‘s Odd Couple reboot has found its second cast member, reuniting Perry with his Go On co-star Sarah Baker. She’ll play the assistant to Perry’s Oscar.

'Today's' Carson Daly isn't 'terribly bummed to be missing' Winter Olympics

On Tuesday (Jan. 28), NBC listed its "Today" regulars soon to travel to Russia for the Xxii Winter Olympics, but Carson Daly wasn't among them.

He has a good reason not to be going: As the host and an executive producer of "The Voice," he'll be immersed in taping segments with returning judges Shakira and Usher for the singing contest's sixth season that starts Monday, Feb. 24, the night after coverage of the Games ends.

Still, Daly tells Zap2it, "I think anybody would be lying if they didn't say they had some concerns" about security in Sochi. "We lead our ['Today'] broadcast every day with some sort of story about a concern of a threat. My family's glad I'm not going, and of all the Olympics, I can't say I'm terribly bummed to be missing this one in particular."

Daly notes the 2016 Games will be in Rio, "and that sounds a little bit better,

Last Call with Carson Daly: NBC Series Not Ending Soon

A couple months ago, NBC announced that Carson Daly, the host of The Voice and Last Call with Carson Daly, would be joining The Today Show as a daily contributor.

The network said that Daly would remain as an executive producer of Last Call in the interim while a "transition" plan was worked out. That was understood to mean a cancellation or at least a new host taking over.

Deadline reports that new episodes began airing at the end of October with "wraparounds" of Daly opening and closing each episode. Interviews are being handled by producers.

The network seems to like the new format so Last Call with Carson Daly will stay on the schedule, at least for the next few months.

New Today Show Host Carson Daly's Biggest Fan? That Would Be His Cohost!
Carson Daly is the latest addition to Studio 1A at Rockefeller Center. Yesterday it was confirmed that Carson's joining Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Natalie Morales, and Al Roker as part of The Today Show crew, with his first show airing in just a few days, on Monday, Sept. 16. Carson's most recent gigs have been hosting Last Call With Carson Daly and The Voice, both of which also air on NBC. But, of course, many in our generation know and will forever love Carson thanks to his turn on MTV's Trl in the '90s - in fact, we're looking back at the iconic show in our Trl time machine. Savannah ranks among Trl's admirers. "Of course I was [a fan!]" Savannah said at last night's Estée Lauder Modern Muse event in NYC. "He's sort of my generation. Even though he's a little younger than me! So maybe I had aged out of Trl.

Syfy Returns to “Haven”, The CW is Developing a Drama about a Transgender Teen and “Korra” Returns to Nick

News

Fox has announced that its delaying the debut of the military comedy Enlisted. It was set to air on Friday nights following Raising Hope starting in November, but will now wait until January to debut. Fox says it will be replaced by a second episode of Raising Hope, though I have a feeling that might not happen if the ratings for Dads are half as bad as the reviews.

Sorry Ed, you’re going to have to wait a few more months to have Parker Young back on TV.

Deadline reports that the CW has ordered a pilot for a drama centered on a transgender teen and his famly. The script is written by Kyle Jarrow who won an award for his Off-Broadway play A Very Merry Unauthorized Children’s Scientology Pageant.
