Watch ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’’ Shot-For-Shot Recreation of the ‘Late Night with David Letterman’ Opening Credits

by Matt Singer 7 days ago
There have been a lot of tributes to David Letterman this week in honor of the venerable talk-show host’s last episode. (Ours, if you haven’t read it yet, is here.) My favorite so far, though, is this one from Late Night with Seth Meyers. Late Night was the show created by and for Letterman on NBC as a follow-up to Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show. Letterman hosted Late Night from 1982 to 1993, when he defected to CBS to compete with The Tonight Show, now starring Jay Leno.

David Letterman, The Man Who Invented Internet Comedy

by Matt Singer 7 days ago
Tonight at 11:35PM, for the very last time, a new episode of The Late Show with David Letterman airs on CBS. Even though I stopped regularly watching Letterman years ago, I, like a lot of folks of my generation, are approaching the occasion with a heavy, nostalgic heart. David Letterman was a late-night institution for over 30 years; my entire life as a conscious human being. I cannot remember a time before David Letterman. In a changing world, he was a constant, as certain as death and taxes.

‘The Bachelorette’ Season 11, Episode 2 Recap: Two Women Enter, One Woman Leaves

by Matt Singer May 19, 2015 @ 10:00 PM
In yesterday’s recap, I predicted that the 25 men on this season of The Bachelorette would choose Britt to be the woman they would all simultaneously date in a way that is not at all weird or uncomfortable. My wife, who got me hooked on this show in the first place and has a sixth sense for its plot twists, predicted it would be Kaitlyn, and she was right. My big mistake: Buying in to the narrative presented by The Bachelorette producers that most of the men were there for Britt, and were utterly smitten by her vivacious charm and outgoing demeanor. In doing so, I forgot the cardinal rule of The Bachelorette: Everything we see is a distorted version of reality, coaxed into being by the show specifically to swerve viewers with shocking twists. Trusting anything shown in The Bachelorette is like trusting a magician when he tells you he really sawed a woman in half.

Peter Dinklage Sings About All Those Dead ‘Game of Thrones’ Characters

by Britt Hayes May 19, 2015 @ 5:21 PM
Boy, a lot of people sure do die on Game of Thrones. Westeros is a really dangerous place for pretty much every human unfortunate enough to live there. In keeping with that idea, Peter Dinklage (aka Tyrion of the House Lannister) teamed up with Coldplay to sing a song for (some of) the fallen characters. Spoilers ahead, obviously, for all five seasons.
