Oftentimes when stars film new features in exotic locations, they'll spend the majority of their press tour talking about how much the new place changed them and their perspectives and their very souls. That didn't happen to Adam Sandler. The 'Blended' star hit 'The Late Show' last night, and although he quite admirably tried to convince host David Letterman that filming his new comedy with Drew Barrymore in Africa really did change him, it's fairly obvious from the get-go that Sandler's still up to his old tricks. This time, however, they involve animals lurking in the background.
Seth Meyers essentially unleashed the creative floodgates of his former 'SNL' brethren with his 'Second Chance Theatre.' The host unveiled the new segment on 'Late Night' earlier this week, thanks to the instant classic that was Will Forte's 'Jennjamin Franklin,' his favorite sketch that never made it to the 'SNL' screen but got new life when Meyers let Forte and friends perform it on the 'Late Night' stage.
Jennifer Lawrence has some serious beef with 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon. The dynamic duo apparently had one heck of a J-Lo-centric plan after this year's Oscar ceremony, a dazzling routine of dancing and charm that was meant to end with Fallon and Lawrence presenting themselves to Jennifer Lopez herself, declaring, "Dance with us!"
Maya Rudolph is really good at a lot of things -- stuff she gets to do professionally, which is awesome for both her and us -- but she's also deeply terrible at a wide variety of skills, like giving some 'Tonight Show'-branded 'Unqualified Advice' to fans looking for some practical and financially minded advice.
Seth Meyers' 'Late Night' just recently unveiled its Second Chance Theatre, an attempt to let former 'SNL' performers have a venue to show off beloved sketches that never made it to the air on the venerable comedy show. Meyers, however, is not the only former 'SNL' head writer to recycle old material -- Tina Fey did it, too!
Jimmy Fallon's hardcore viewership has some (let's put it delicately) extremely weird demands for what they want to see on his 'Tonight Show,' including one request replicate the Big Mouth Billy Bass that served as everyone's go-to white elephant gift a few years ago. There's no way that fan thought asking Fallon to include such a gag on his show would end with Lance Bass (of *NSYNC fame) replicating it in the most horrifying and true-to-life way possible. Yes, he's hanging above a fireplace.
Do you like word association? No, wait, don't answer that, because there's simply no way you like word association as much as unexpected 'Tonight Show' star "Mets Bucket Hat Guy," who hit Jimmy Fallon's show last night for an association challenge that may actually leave your head spinning. It's both totally exhausting and weirdly exhilarating.
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.'
