John Oliver appears as if from nowhere and hosts 'The Daily Show'

John Oliver has proven that he can host The Daily Show, but that doesn’t mean fans were expecting him to show up and take over last night’s show. And yet, when Jon Stewart decided he was a little uncomfortable hosting a show about his own film, Rosewater, he took out his Queen Elizabeth teapot, gave it a little rub, and out popped a British genie that looked a lot like John Oliver.

Channing Tatum defeats Jimmy Fallon in an epic game of Box of Lies

Last night, not only did Jimmy Fallon decide to revisit Box of Lies, but he did it with Channing Tatum (who apparently loves a good E.T. stuffed animal).

Tatum, who’s making the rounds promoting his upcoming film Foxcatcher, sat down for one of Fallon’s most well-known games, and let’s just say the two of them had a lot of fun with it.

Jimmy Kimmel does his annual Halloween prank, kids cry about it again

Four years later and not much has changed. Once again, Jimmy Kimmel asked his viewers to tell their children that they ate all of their Halloween candy and record their children’s reactions. There aren’t any adorable brothers this year, but there is a child that says “f— you, mother f—er,” so clearly, society is on the decline.

Watch “I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy 2014″ below.

Bill Murray ditches the 'Late Show' to train for the NYC marathon

Bill Murray is a very busy man—and sometimes, being very busy means going for a run in a tux in the middle of a talk show interview.

On last night’s Late Show, Murray realized that he was less than a month away from the NYC Marathon. Apparently, he’d made a promise to himself that he was going to enter this year. In a panic that he wouldn’t have enough time to train, Murray took his interview on the run. After putting a little Bengay on his hands—to help with his achy knees, obviously—Murray took off for a quick, marathon-worthy sprint around the block, during which he stole from strangers and realized what it feels like to be born again.

'Law & Order: SVU': Every issue shoehorned into the Jay Z/Solange/Donald Sterling episode

Yep, you read that headline right: There was a lot going on in SVU last night.

Just how much? About as much as was stuffed into 2013’s biggest kitchen-sink episode, “American Tragedy”—a smorgasbord that included takes on Paula Deen, Trayvon Martin, stop-and-frisk, and even “Blurred Lines.” The latest entry in the SVU canon—which aired almost exactly one year after “American Tragedy”—was a similarly chock-full affair, complete with an analogous title (“American Disgrace”), another big-name guest star (Stacy Keach as a Donald Sterling-esque billionaire), and the same disingenuous opening title card: “The following story is fictional and does not depict any actual person or event.”

Mmmhmmm. Check out this list of issues crammed into the episode, then judge for yourself. READ FULL STORY

You need to watch 'The Simpsons' premiere's insane opening sequence

Shout all you want that The Simpsons hasn’t been good for the past [insert number less than or equal to 16] years; either way, you can’t deny that the show’s recent spate of elaborate, extended couch gags has led to some dazzling, audaciously creative stuff.

This is especially true when The Simpsons turns over its opening to famous animators and filmmakers like Michal SochaGuillermo del Toro—and, most recently, indie idol Don Hertzfeldt, beloved for absurdist fare like the Oscar-nominated short film Rejected. (Contrary to semi-popular belief, he has nothing to do with those lookalike Pop Tart commercials from 2011; as the F.A.Q. section of his website states, “Unfortunately it seems to be the vogue these days for creatively bankrupt corporate types to copy his work, which is why you may be noticing an abundance of vaguely familiar, cowardly lifeless parrots parading around selling Pop Tarts or mobile phones.”) READ FULL STORY

Kerry Washington schools Jimmy Fallon in a game of Box of Lies

Oh, Jimmy Fallon. Don’t you know not to challenge Olivia Pope to a game about lying?

Last night, during Kerry Washington’s appearance on The Tonight Show, Fallon and Washington played a very quick game of “Box of Lies”—in which each contestant picks a box, describes what’s in it, and the other person has to guess if they’re lying about the box’s contents. You know, the one he played with Jennifer Lawrence.

Let’s just say that Washington proved that Pope’s lie-detecting talents aren’t entirely fictional.

Conan O'Brien does the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Last night, Conan O’Brien followed in Jimmy Fallon’s footsteps and took part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which was designed to spread the word about ALS. Those who perform the challenge can then challenge someone else. If the person challenged doesn’t complete it in 24 hours, they have to donate $100 to ALS.

Only someone didn’t fully explain that to O’Brien. After trying to fake his way through the challenge to earn $100 bucks, O’Brien was in for a rude awakening when he realized that not only was he was supposed to donate the money, but a real bucket of ice water was waiting for him. After the traumatic experience, a very cold O’Brien passed the challenge on to Jimmy Carter, Pelé, and Haley Joel Osment. So I guess we’ll see how that goes.

Watch Uzo Aduba teach Conan O'Brien how to make 'crazy eyes'

On Monday night, the cast of Orange Is the New Black went on its first-ever late-night appearance as a group when stars Kate Mulgrew, Taylor Schilling, Uzo Aduba, Natasha Lyonne, Jason Biggs, Laverne Cox, and Lea DeLaria joined Conan O’Brien to talk about their hit Netflix show.

Perhaps the highlight of their appearance was Aduba revealing the secret to Crazy Eyes’ signature facial expression. But when she tried to talk O’Brien through the process of making his eyes pop like Aduba’s do on the show, he looked less crazy and more creepy and confused.

See The Rock join Jimmy Fallon for an old-school workout

When Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stopped by The Tonight Show to promote his new film Hercules, Jimmy Fallon asked about Johnson’s workout routine. From there, Johnson and Fallon put on some killer wigs, reenacted classic workout VHS tapes, and even perfected the art of the “squat thrust” as The Fungo Brothers.

As the Fungo Brothers always say, “You gotta hustle for the muscle!” READ FULL STORY
