After saying goodbye to 'The Daily Show' veteran correspondent and 'Community' star, John Oliver will break out on his own this coming April for his weekly HBO news series, 'Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.' The first teaser for the April 27 premiere proved more than a little confusing, so check out two new promo spots parodying recent events for a taste of 'Last Week Tonight'!
We've long been taught that road rage is a bad thing, that screaming at your fellow drivers is rude, honking is abrasive, and riding someone's bumper is the sign of some other emotional distress that might need to be worked out beyond your vehicle. But what if you could somehow transfer said rage to your vehicle, specifically to your shiny new Chevy Rage?
What do you need to form a random doo-wop group with singing legend Billy Joel? Perhaps three other singers? Some talent? An arsenal of songs? Someone to convince Joel that he needs to be a in strange doo-wop group at this point in his career? Nope! Turns out, you just need a late night talk show and an iPad app.
The world is a dangerous place, and if warning labels can help even the most basic and obvious of injuries and maladies from occurring, that's a fine thing. (Yes, you can choke on this small object. No, don't put this plastic bag over your head.) But what about products that don't currently come with a warning label and still need them? 'Late Night' host Seth Meyers has a few labels he'd like to see put into circulation, and he shared the first round of them on last night's show.
Apparently, being 'Tonight Show' host means that you can get access to a lot of wild stuff, like private phone chats (with split-screen video, most improbably) between President Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin about the situation in Crimea. At least, that's what host Jimmy Fallon wants us to believe.
If the popular 'Lie Witness News' segment on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' proves anything, it's that scads of people are prone to flat-out fibbing when approached with a seemingly obvious question, often quite hilariously. For the latest installment, host Jimmy Kimmel had his team take to the streets of Los Angeles to ask residents about their earthquake preparedness.
'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon and his well-documented love of subjecting various guests to plenty of gameplay extends far beyond original spins on existing games and wacky new amusements that are almost too weird to be believed, he also loves to partake in some classic fun -- like a good old-fashioned game of 'The $25,000 Pyramid' (but, without the $25,000).
The timing just happens to be pretty perfect -- the world's most recognizable green superstar, Kermit the Frog, has a new movie coming out - 'Muppets Most Wanted' - the very same week that kicks off with the world's most recognizable green holiday. Sure, Kermit probably doesn't imbibe too much on the holiday like the rest of us do, but that doesn't mean that it can't prove to be beneficial to his flagging self-esteem.
