Here's something you're not going to see in the 'Game of Thrones' books nor in episodes of the HBO series based on author George R.R. Martin's beloved series: computer technology. Here's something you're not going to see in George R.R. Martin's office: computer technology.

'Conan' Continues: TBS Late-Night Series Picked Up Through 2018

by Kevin Fitzpatrick May 14, 2014 @ 10:27 AM
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.

'Star Wars: Episode 7 - Greedo Gets His Groove Back' and More 'Conan' Alternate Titles

by Kate Erbland May 9, 2014 @ 9:00 AM
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).

'Conan' Gives Oprah's First Audition Tape a "Hellish" Spin

by Kate Erbland May 8, 2014 @ 9:54 AM
The Queen of All Media had to start somewhere, so it seems particularly sweet that Oprah Winfrey decided to share her first audition tape with her millions (billions?) of fans as a bit of both inspiration and big laughs. She was so serious! She was so interested in spelling things! She was so ... demonically possessed?

'Conan': Even Dave Franco Has Zero Idea What James Franco Is Doing

by Kate Erbland May 7, 2014 @ 9:26 AM
Young Dave Franco has always done an admirable job of drawing a line between himself and his arguably more famous big brother, James. While Dave dedicated his career to delivering steadily improving supporting performances in a bunch of comedic outings -- think '21 Jump Street' or 'Neighbors' -- James has spent the last few years doing, well, just a lot of things, including some questionable social media behavior.

Bootleg 'Star Wars: Episode 7' Cast Members Found in the 'Conan' Audience

by Kate Erbland May 1, 2014 @ 9:58 AM
Now that we (finally) know which stars we can expect to see in J.J. Abrams' 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' you'd think the fervor over the film's casting choices would have worn off just a tiny bit. You would be wrong. Turns out, 'Star Wars' madness is just getting started, but that doesn't mean that every piece of information about the film is totally hidden.

Donald Sterling Has Lots More to Say in Conan O'Brien's "Unearthed" Tapes

by Kate Erbland April 30, 2014 @ 11:44 AM
If there's anyone who could find even a smidgen of actual humor in the entire Donald Sterling incident, it just might be Conan O'Brien. The late-night host took to 'Conan' last night to put a spin on the Los Angeles Clippers owners' recorded racist rant, and it's one that has a pretty clever series of punchlines.

Chelsea Handler Assures Conan She Is Not Retiring

by Kate Erbland April 29, 2014 @ 9:42 AM
If you've been following the late-night show shake-ups of the past few months -- starting with Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers taking over the NBC slots, moving right into David Letterman announcing his retirement, and currently stalled out with the news that Craig Ferguson will also be leaving his own CBS show -- you might also be aware that Chelsea Handler is leaving her own E! show. But she is not retiring.

How Tracy Morgan's Alter Ego Got Him Kicked Out of Prince's House

by Kate Erbland April 18, 2014 @ 9:17 AM
It's hard to imagine that anyone's partying technique would be too much for Prince's tastes; this is, after all, a man who sings about partying like it's 1999 and the sexiness of cheap thrift-store finds with equal adoration. However, it seems that there is at least one person who is too freaky for even Prince to handle. Chico Divine. Who? Chico Divine? Who? Tracy Morgan's freaky-partying alter ego.

'Orphan Black' Star Tatiana Maslany Shares Horrific German Fairy Tale on 'Conan'

by Kate Erbland April 17, 2014 @ 9:59 AM
Fairy tales may seem fun and whimsical and sweet now, but the histories of most of them are dark and truly terrifying. Perhaps you are familiar with Hans Christian Andersen, who penned the original 'Little Mermaid' fairy tale, one that ended, well, it just ended very differently than the Disney version. But Andersen wasn't the only author who used his fairy tales to freak kids out. Over in Germany, Heinrich Hoffmann did the same thing with his 'Der Struwwelpeter,' and guess who grew up reading it?
