Dismayed though we were to learn that 'The Daily Show' vet John Oliver had outgrown his position as correspondent (and brief host) to Jon Stewart, his HBO future looks brighter than ever. The premium cable network has officially set an April premiere for the newly-titled 'Last Week Tonight with John Oliver,' but when can fans see for themselves?
The sweeping changes to the late night landscape have only recently begun, with Jay Leno having said his goodbyes to 'The Tonight Show,' with Jimmy Fallon soon to take his place. Seth Meyers too, has left behind 'SNL' for his impending 'Late Night' gig, which we've now learned to feature fellow alumni Fred Armisen leading the band!
And lo, the tenure of 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' has come to an end once again, leaving Jay to walk off into that darling sunset with Jimmy Fallon waiting in the wings and a bitter Conan O'Brien making the only jokes. Jay's first-ever guest Billy Crystal joined the late-night host last night to bookend the run, bringing with him a cavalcade of guest stars to send Jay off in style before the big man himself finally said goodbye!
We've seen Conan O'Brien nail plenty of 'Conan' parodies with dead-on accuracy, but now he's just dead! To commemorate 'The Walking Dead''s season 4 return and the entire cast's presence on 'Conan,' watch the late night TBS host join the ranks of the living dead in a zombified cold open for last night's 'Conan'!
When he's not busy stealing every scene of NBC's 'Parks and Recreation,' Nick Offerman is busy appearing in all kinds of movies, from major blockbusters like '21 Jump Street' to small independent productions like 'Somebody Up There Likes Me.' His most recent production, a concert film of his comedy show 'American Ham,' played at this year's Sundance Film Festival, and Offerman went on 'Conan' to explain the secret to getting your movie accepted into the prestigious fest.
Stars Shailene Woodley and Theo James hit up 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' last night to premiere the final 'Divergent' trailer, which whittles down this complicated sci-fi world into the main plot points -- society is divided up into factions, one breaks from the mold, the government doesn't like that so much.
This past weekend saw 'Wolf of Wall Street' Oscar-nominee Jonah Hill bringing his A-game (and A-listers!) to 'SNL' for his third hosting gig, but can Melissa McCarthy's own third time hosting bring the heat, especially in the shadow of
Super Bowl, er, "Live Ball War: The Game" Sunday? Find out in the first promos for our February 1 'SNL' installments with McCarthy and Imagine Dragons!
The inevitable departure of 'SNL' vet and Weekend Update host Seth Meyers has not yet befallen fans of the long-running sketch comedy series, though when Meyers leaves Saturdays behind for 'Late Night,' co-anchor Cecily Strong will not fly solo at the Weekend Update desk. 'SNL''s head writer Colin Jost has officially been selected to fill Meyers' seat, but is he up for the task?
This past weekend's 'SNL' turn with Drake at the helm proved to be surprisingly effective, doubly so given all the new talent on display. But will 2014 continue on the same hot streak when 'The Wolf of Wall Street' star Jonah Hill makes his third hosting run, accompanied by musical guest Bastille? Find out in the first official profanity-laden promos for this coming weekend's all-new 'SNL'!
Just a few weeks' time will see the late night landscape dramatically shift, as 'Late Night' host Jimmy Fallon finally takes the 'Tonight Show' throne from Jay Leno, and 'SNL' veteran Seth Meyers joins 'Late Night' in his wake. Fallon has tapped cinema icon Will Smith and Irish rockers U2 for his inaugural 'Tonight Show' gig, but who will join Seth Meyers on the couch?
