We've had plenty of upsets across the late-night landscape in recent weeks, now that Larry Wilmore has been announced to take over 'The Colbert Report' slot from Stephen Colbert, who himself will take over for David Letterman's 'Late Show,' going head to head with Jimmy Fallon's new 'Tonight Show.' At least one host is staying in his place, however, as TBS guaranteed Conan O'Brien's 'Conan' to run through 2018.
Over the years, 'SNL' nixed its fair share of sketches from their late-night installments -- for one, take a look at this bizarre sketch from Andrew Garfield's latest hosting run -- but now they're getting a second chance to see the light of day. Seth Meyers, who served as 'SNL' head writer for nearly 10 years, is determined to resurrect some never-aired favorites for his new audience on 'Late Night with Seth Meyers.'
'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon has been farming out plenty of his gags lately, asking his audience to send in various funny bits as they fit certain themes. Last night, he shared a batch of loyal fan-submitted screengrabs from both the internet and television -- a selection of some strange pictures, mismatched text, and a Captcha so bizarre that its hidden message popped up (tee hee) throughout the rest of the segment.
Emma Roberts has spent plenty of time working with ghosties and ghoulies on FX's various incarnations of 'American Horror Story,' but that doesn't mean she's somehow immune to being scared right out of her skin. In fact, the young actress just might be a bit more sensitive to the whole thing than people who don't traffic in jump scares and loud noises and terrifying prophecies on television series. But Roberts developed some tactics to get away from spirits scot-free, and she was more than happy to share those tips with 'Late Night' host Seth Meyers last night.
Funny lady Amy Schumer has never had a problem speaking her mind in just about every situation imaginable -- from social interactions to her own work -- so it's not particularly surprising that she brought that same level of honesty to a rousing game of "Truth or Truth" on 'The Tonight Show' last night.
The announcement that Stephen Colbert would succeed David Letterman as host of CBS' 'Late Show' not only shook up the late-night landscape, it also left us wondering how Comedy Central might follow 'The Daily Show' after 'The Colbert Report' came to an end. It seems we now know, as 'The Daily Show''s "Senior Black Correspondent' Larry Wilmore will replace 'The Colbert Report' with his own series, aptly titled 'The Minority Report.'
Although it's understandable to assume that hardcore football fans aren't the greatest dancers in the world -- they value other athletic skills, after all -- it seems that hypothesis might not be exactly correct. Well, unless 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon explicitly instructed his 'Questions and Danswers' minion Arthur to only find awesome dancers for the latest entry of the segment, aimed at targeting NFL fans and chatting them up about what their teams need to grab in the draft. You know, while dancing.
James Franco is, to put it diplomatically, a bit of an odd duck. Sure, he's a very talented guy -- and one who has never balked at using his talents across a wide range of professions -- but he's also kind of a weirdo in plenty of situations, especially as they apply to social media. And David Letterman is not having it.
Not sold on the rumored 'Star Wars: Episode 7' title, 'The Ancient Fear'? It's okay, you're not the only one; even director J.J. Abrams doesn't seem too excited to slap such a moniker on his first 'Star Wars' film (though, this is the guy who made a film called 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' so it certainly could be worse).
