Regardless of where you fall on the current state of late night, Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show never lacks for bizarrely enjoyable stunts. Now, the same week that brought Hawkeye’s ode to himself sees Welcome To Me star Kristen Wiig stopping by the Tonight Show as Game of Thrones’ Khaleesi, for … reasons!

Paul Rudd was promoting Ant-Man on The Late Show With David Letterman last night, which may seem early considering Avengers 2 hasn't even opened yet and Ant-Man doesn't hit theaters until July 17. But, with Letterman set to retire on May 20, this would be Rudd's last time appearing on the show (and, as he reveals later in the interview, he's a literal member of the Dave Letterman Fan Club). It was more of an excuse for Rudd to say goodbye to Letterman and pay his respects before the final show, but Rudd did bring along the first Ant-Man clip and tried his best to explain what this movie is about.
Jon Stewart has been refreshingly honest in recent weeks about his decision to leave The Daily Show behind, and while we’ll never feel quite ready to say goodbye, we at least have time to prepare. The 16-year anchor has confirmed that he’ll take his final bow as host of The Daily Show this coming August.
However controversial The Daily Show’s run with new host Trevor Noah turns out to be, no one would deny the overall sadness of Jon Stewart leaving the program behind after so many years. Now, Stewart himself has opened up on the decision to retire, getting surprisingly candid about his “depression” over the state of TV news, and yes, the fear of “turd lung disease.”
If The Avengers feel like one big, slightly dysfunctional family, it's because they are. And that applies to off-screen as well as on. Playing off that chemistry, the cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron — Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner — appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and played a rousing game of Family Feud.
Hard as it was to say goodbye to Jon Stewart’s time on The Daily Show, the appointment of Trevor Noah grew complicated after uncovering multiple past tweets perceived in poor taste. Now, Stewart steps up to defend his successor, asking viewers to give the South African comedian a chance to earn their trust.
Reaction to Comedy Central choosing South African comedian Trevor Noah as The Daily Show successor to Jon Stewart ran the gamut, though today saw a wave of backlash over less-than-sensitive jokes tweeted from Noah’s account over the years. Now, Comedy Central has stepped in to comment, calling the criticism “unfair.”
The Daily Show and Comedy Central have announced that, after a long search with many rumored candidates, Trevor Noah will succeed the retiring Jon Stewart as the host of the late night program. Noah, a 31-year-old stand-up comedian, has served as a correspondent for the show but, so far, has only made three appearances.
The Late Late Show With James Corden made its grand debut last night, with seemingly every celebrity in existence popping up to say hello. But for his first official guest, Corden snagged everyone’s favorite actor: the one and only Tom Hanks. More importantly, he got Tom Hanks to get really silly and there are few things better than Hanks throwing caution to the wind and embracing his inner comedian. In this case, he got the two-time Oscar winner to re-enact all of his movies in less than eight minutes.
Wait, is Kevin Spacey actually Johnny Carson now? Did no one tell me? When did this happen? Should we be afraid? Is he going to take over a late night show now.
