TBS’ Conan has been running strong for six full years now, frequently pushing the format with trips to Comic-Con, Cuba and more, but not everything goes off without a hitch. See for yourself, as wayward ravens derail Conan and Andy’s attempt to make a Game of Thrones sketch in a new behind-the-scenes sneak peek.

Well, if Tom Hanks were going to spend 90 minutes reenacting a stretch of Captain Chesley Sullenberger’s life, it’s only fair the real Sully gets to do the same. See for yourself in the official Hanks biopic trailer, complete with Hanks’ old Bosom Buddies star Peter Scolari!
And lo, Larry Wilmore’s The Nightly Show has come to an early end after 259 episodes, but won’t be forgotten. Not only did former Daily Show host Jon Stewart drop by to send off his former show’s “Senior Black Correspondent,” you can watch both Stewart’s and Wilmore’s goodbyes right now.
The cancellation of Larry Wilmore’s Nightly Show remains a sudden shock days after the fact, even as Wilmore gears up for his final show on Thursday. He certainly won’t be alone, as fellow Comedy Central departure (and executive producer) Jon Stewart will put in an appearance to help send off his show’s former “Senior Black Correspondent.”
Following the power-hour of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert was always a tall order, and it seems Comedy Central late-night has its first casualty as such. The Nightly Show with host Larry Wilmore will officially come to an end this week, while Wilmore responds to the “unblackening” of his time slot.
The Republican National Convention has certainly energized Stephen Colbert’s Late Show, but there’s little two ways about the former Colbert Report host struggling to find his voice on CBS. James Corden’s Late Late Show has only grown in the subsequent time slot however, but would CBS really consider swapping the order?
Stephen Colbert has been sorely missing from late-night, and we don’t mean the one hosting CBS’ Late Show night after night. Thankfully, The Colbert Report version made a welcome return to a changed political landscape last night, along with none other than former Comedy Central buddy Jon Stewart.
Anyone following David Letterman (and his giant beard)’s post-retirement from The Late Show can’t help a smile at the veteran comic’s irreverent outlook. To wit, Letterman reveals in a new interview that he “couldn’t care less” about Stephen Colbert’s new Late Show, or any other series out there, wondering why the job didn’t go to a female host.
There has been a lot of skepticism about the new Ghostbusters. Would Paul Feig and his new cast pull it off? Would angry fanboys lose their minds before the movie came out? There was a lot of anxiety. But it’s hard to ignore an endorement like the one the new Ghostbusters got on Jimmy Kimmel Live! from the original Ghostbusters.
We still don’t have the clearest picture of what ex-Daily Show host Jon Stewart’s HBO future looks like, though that hasn’t stopped Stewart from making headlines with his rescue work. Now, at long last, Stewart returned to late-night to reunite with Samantha Bee for her own Full Frontal TBS series and a little horsin’-around.
