J.J. Abrams Broke His Back Making ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ (Literally)

Harrison Ford might be a superhero. This, according to Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams, who was on set for Ford’s unfortunate accident last year, when a hydraulic door broke his leg. (As Abrams’ describes it in the clip above, his ankle was at a, gulp, 90-degree angle to the rest of his body. Ew.) Thankfully, Ford was okay. Then he later got into a plane crash and was mostly okay after that too. Because, again, Harrison Ford is a superhero.

For as much denial as we’re under regarding Jon Stewart’s final Daily Show week, one has to wonder how Trevor Noah will fill the seat with his September premiere. Thankfully, not everything about The Daily Show will change with Stewart, as the old guard of executive producers will remain through Noah’s tenure.

As we inch closer and closer to Jon Stewart’s abdication of The Daily Show, Stewart has become increasingly esoteric and playful with the format. That approach only grew with two new segments this week, the first allowing Jon to take audience questions of his tenure, and the second purely grunting reactions to Presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee’s recent Holocaust comments.

Jon Stewart’s final Daily Show inches closer and closer, and the revered host isn’t going to go quietly. President Barack Obama himself will make a seventh appearance guesting on the program, his “final interview” before Jon Stewart signs off the Comedy Central airwaves.

Marvel’s Ant-Man opens in theaters today and to this point we’ve seen no shortage of trailers, clips and TV spots showing off all kinds of footage. But, on the last stop on his promotional tour for the movie, Paul Rudd stopped by to visit Conan O’Brien and brought something extra special.

As Jon Stewart winds down his tenure on The Daily Show, more and more names have emerged from Comedy Central shortlists ahead of Trevor Noah. Red-hot comedienne and perfect human Amy Schumer seems also to have been offered the gig, though the Trainwreck star declined a “safe” option for her blossoming career.

Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers ‘Really!?!’ Reunited on Late Night, and It Was Perfect

by Kevin Fitzpatrick June 25, 2015 @ 9:47 AM
Much as Seth Meyers and Amy Poehler have gone on to kill it in Late Night and Inside Out respectively, the SNL fan in all of us will always miss their Weekend Update banter. Now, our own inner Joy can howl with delight, as the pair reunited on Late Night for a new incarnation of fan-favorite "Really!?!"

We don’t yet have a clear sense of what The Daily Show with Trevor Noah will look like, and while we’ve heard a few big names suggested prior, our future Daily Show almost looked very different. Not only did the inimitable Amy Poehler (briefly) consider an offer to host, but so too did Chris Rock apparently mull over taking the chair for a time.

‘Late Show With Stephen Colbert’ Jumps on Trump Presidential Parody

by Kevin Fitzpatrick June 17, 2015 @ 12:09 AM
Stephen Colbert has begun rolling out his Late Show tenure slowly as leadup to the September 8 premiere, but on a week where eternal punchline Donald Trump at last announces an official bid for the presidency, any late-night host worth their salt would hit the gas. So, what does Colbert have to say of Trump’s potential presidential future?

All Letterman ‘Late Show’ Clips Pulled From YouTube, But Why?

by Kevin Fitzpatrick June 12, 2015 @ 10:21 AM
Difficult though saying goodbye to David Letterman’s Late Show proved, Stephen Colbert has slowly started to win us over in promotion of his own late-night future. That said, CBS may have nuked the ground from orbit, taking down every single Letterman clip from YouTube and its website, so what gives?
