James Corden throws to first commercial on 'Late Late Show'

There are a few absolutes in late-night talk show hosting: monologues, silly sketches, guest interviews, and having to keep audiences coming back after each one.

Future host James Corden had his chance to prove his skills on at least one of those when he appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

Barbara Walters and David Letterman don't want to retire, make 'suicide pact' -- VIDEO

Barbara Walters and David Letterman are pretty good at what they do. You might even call them icons in their respective fields. (You most definitely should, actually.)

So it’s no real surprise that when this pair of retiring television legends sat down for an interview on Late Show on Wednesday, they both admitted they’re having a hard time accepting that their jobs are coming to an end.

You’re retiring,” Walters said. “I do not want you to retire.”

“I don’t want to retire now either,” Letterman responded to applause. “I’ve changed my mind.” But, he conceded, “that ship has sailed.” The network’s already planning on repainting, after all.

Walters admitted that she feels the same way: “I said yes, I wanted to go; I’m not ready. Let’s walk into the sunset together,” she suggested, and they shook on it. READ FULL STORY

Neil Patrick Harris tells Howard Stern he declined to take over CBS late-night show -- LISTEN

With multiple Emmys, a long-running syndicated sitcom, a new movie coming out this month, and a recent Tony nomination, Neil Patrick Harris can already be considered legendary. So it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that the actor, currently wowing audiences on Broadway as a trans German rock star in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, was asked to take over for the departing David Letterman on CBS’ The Late Show.

'Mom': The highs and lows of season 1

Allison Janney adds a touch of greatness to anything she’s in — Masters of Sex, The West Wing, the Mandy Moore classic How to Deal. So it’s no surprise that Janney shines in CBS sitcom Mom, created by Chuck Lorre, Eddie Gorodetsky, and Gemma Baker.

Janney’s Bonnie plays mom to Christy (Anna Faris), who plays mom to pregnant teen Violet and adorable 9-year-old Roscoe. Much of the show hinges on Bonnie and Christy’s tumultuous relationship, but the two get along rather nicely in last night’s season finale — probably because they have bigger problems to worry about, i.e. Alvin’s heart attack and Violet’s water breaking.

Tracy Morgan wants David Letterman's job -- VIDEO

Watch your back, Jimmy Fallon: One of your former Saturday Night Live co-stars is gunning for David Letterman’s job.

Tracy Morgan stopped by the Today show Thursday morning, where he told Matt Lauer he’s launching a new campaign: To become CBS’s next late night host. “Jimmy Fallon needs some competition,” he explained. Hold up, everyone. Let’s not dismiss this too quickly — Morgan’s show sounds amazing.

The band: “It would be different every night. It might be Drake one night, it might be Sly and the Family Stone [the next].”

'How I Met Your Mother' finale review: Why it worked

What was How I Met Your Mother about?

If you took the title at face value, you’re one of the (many, many, many) disappointed fans following Monday’s series finale. Yes, Ted met the Mother, but their meeting ended up being beside the point.

(Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen the HIMYM series finale.) READ FULL STORY

'Friends With Better Lives': A first assessment, plus burning questions

Clearly, CBS hopes its newest “group of pals” sitcom may be able to fill the How I Met Your Mother-shaped hole in your heart. Why else would the network premiere Friends With Better Lives at 9 p.m. Monday night — right after HIMYM wraps up its final season, when all its loyal fans are at their most vulnerable?

But if HIMYM was, at heart, a Ted Mosby — kind, good-hearted, a soul-mate sort of show; hold on, I’ve got something in my eye — FWBL is more of an early-period Barney Stinson. By that, I mean it’s crass, boorish, and, at least as of now, not exactly the kind of series you’d want to spend more than a few nights with. READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: '...and it was legendary'

UPDATE: Recap is live! Monday’s episode of How I Met Your Mother, titled “The End of the Aisle,” was the series’ last new episode before next week’s hour-long season finale. Your full recap of tonight’s episode is on the way, but as the series prepares to wind down, we want to get the discussion going ASAP.

VOW-za, guys. Vow-za.

I’m moved. I’m smiling. I’m crying rivers of happy tears.

I always knew the writers of How I Met Your Mother could do a several things extremely well. Craft masterful inside joke, for example. Or create a catchphrase that somehow weaseled its way into ours everyday lives. But what am I going to miss most when this show takes its final bow next week? Basically the last four minutes of every episode that ever resonated with me.

This week, as the titled of the episode indicated, Barney and Robin finally reached the end of the aisle. They got married. But wrapped up into this long, long, long, long, long, long-awaited ceremony were lessons about love and honesty and bears. Ok, maybe just the first two were important.

I’ll back up…

Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs defend Lindsay Lohan's '2 Broke Girls' performance

So it turns out all of those rumors about Lindsay Lohan being a nightmare to work with on the set of 2 Broke Girls were just that — rumors.

Stars Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs took to Twitter on Friday to refute claims that guest star Lohan was a disaster and repeatedly screwed up her lines during a taping on Wednesday. The reports stemmed from an unimpressed witness who claimed: ”[We, the audience members] are very familiar with every single one of Lindsay Lohan’s lines and can repeat them all verbatim to you because we heard them so many times last night. There is not a member of the audience who couldn’t do a better job than Lindsay Lohan did last night.”
