George R. R. Martin drinks in your Red Wedding tears on 'Conan' -- VIDEO

And they’re only making him stronger!!

Four days after the fact, even the Game of Thrones fans who knew Sunday’s Red Wedding was on the horizon are still trying to recover from seeing it in all its gory glory. As for those who had no idea what was in store for Robb, Catelyn, and Talisa? Forget about it. The reaction videos prove that they may never be the same.

And now the man who single-handedly murdered an entire army has had a chance to see firsthand what his words have wreaked — courtesy of Conan O’Brien.

The Benedict Cumberbatch shower scene you DIDN'T see in 'Star Trek Into Darkness' -- VIDEO

Benedict-Cumberbatch-topless.jpg

If you’re a Cumberbitch, I won’t mince words: Go below the jump, my friends.

If you had to look up the (made-up) word “Cumberbitch,” I’ll provide some context: Star Trek Into Darkness maestros J. J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof have been taking some heat for a scene in their new movie, which features a gratuitous shot of star Alice Eve in her underwear. (Gratuitous female nudity in an action movie? Well, I never!)

But as Abrams pointed out on Conan last night, the scene in question came after an earlier shot of gratuitous Chris Pine shirtlessness — meaning that if anything, he and the Enterprise crew are equal-opportunity objectifiers. Abrams subsequently revealed something that may have made Tumblr explode: Star Trek villain Benedict Cumberbatch also had a shirtless scene that ended up being cut from the movie. And then the director showed a snippet of the scene in question — which finds Cumberbatch glowering in a “shower of evil.”

Ke$ha's breasts have written some of her favorite songs -- VIDEO

We imagine last night was a far cry from the White House Correspondents’ Dinner for Conan. Remember when Ke$ha talked about having sex with a ghost on his show? Well, her return appearance last night was equally amazing. Decked out in a dress covered in tiny Conan faces, Ke$ha talked about how she gets her inspiration for songs. She simply leans over the piano and lets her breasts tickle the ivories.

”It started as, like, a joke, but then it seriously has produced some of my favorite songs on my new record,” the singer/songwriter said.

Conan absolutely loved it and you could tell he wanted to do about 10 minutes of material on the subject. He settled with imitating what the process must look like and talking like he was one of Ke$ha’s breasts.

”Although you’re laughing, it’s a very serious process for me,” Ke$ha told Conan, although she seemed in on the whole joke.

White House Correspondents' Dinner: President Obama on NBC, 'The Bible,' and Taylor Swift. Plus: Conan O'Brien's best jokes

C-Span insistently stamped the hashtag “NerdProm” on their coverage of this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, but the annual political roast looked more like Washington’s answer to the Golden Globes. By which I mean, there were several pointed jokes and untold gallons of booze. Conan O’Brien was the official comedy diplomat of the night — a return trip for the late-night host, who slung jokes in President Clinton’s direction back in 1995. But O’Brien was overshadowed by his opener: President Barack Obama, who took the opportunity to make several jabs at NBC, CNN, and even Taylor Swift. Read on for the best zingers by the former Tonight Show host and the Commander-in-Chief of these United States. READ FULL STORY

Late-night hosts address Boston tragedy -- VIDEO

In the wake of the tragic events in Boston yesterday, some people were ready to relax with their favorite late-night hosts and some were not. The hosts who aired new shows last night had the difficult task of trying to address the tragedy in a honest and passionate way while also trying to entertain people who just wanted a laugh. Conan O’Brien started his show by saying his ”thoughts and prayers” are with the people of Boston, his hometown. ”That said, it is our job to do a show. We’re gonna try to entertain you the very best we can, which given our track record gives you people a 20 percent chance of having a good show tonight.”

Conan O'Brien and Chelsea Handler get slap-happy in the shower... naked -- NSFW VIDEO

Breaking news: Conan O’Brien has abs!

On last night’s episode of Chelsea Lately, Chelsea Handler had a very special guest: Late night’s favorite freakishly tall redhead, who wasn’t exactly sitting across from her in front of a live audience. Instead, in the sketch that echoed Handler’s stunt with Sandra Bullock, a naked Conan O’Brien walked in on Chelsea in the staff showers and started to pick a fight. According to Conan, Chelsea stole his studio (which includes the shower and its ah-mazing water pressure), his parking space, and his back massager.

After debating Chelsea’s nether regions, the argument resulted in a lot of slapping, a brief discussion about Joan Rivers, two black eyes, and one very naked Chuy. Oddly enough, what didn’t happen was anything shower-related.

Late Night Wars redux: Who will you watch at 11:30? -- VOTE

Less than one year from now, Jimmy Fallon will inherit late night TV’s most highly-coveted showcase: The Tonight Show.

Though the road to yesterday’s official announcement was a bumpy one — ousted host Jay Leno’s been joking about being knifed in the back by the snakes at NBC for weeks — the dust now seems to have cleared. Everyone from ABC rival Jimmy Kimmel to ex-Tonight Show host Conan O’Brien has issued congratulations to Fallon, a performer who seems to personify amiability. Even Leno tempered his barbs last night, calling Fallon “a hell of a guy” and saying that he’ll do “a great job.”

So now that the succession plan is settled, we can start to focus on what’s really important: which guy we’ll be watching come February 2014.  READ FULL STORY

Paul Rudd's 'Anchorman 2' clip inspired by classic '80's kids movie -- VIDEO

Rocking the familiar mustache and 1970’s shag of his Anchorman character Brian Fantana, Paul Rudd took a break from filming the sequel yesterday in Atlanta and popped by Conan O’Brien’s visiting TBS talk show.

Asked about the hotly anticipated Anchorman: The Legend Continues, Rudd surprised O’Brien with a special treat: an exclusive clip from the film. If that seems too good to be true — given that the top-secret sequel is, as O’Brien said, on “lock down” — it’s because it is. Only one of the following three words turned out to be true: “exclusive Anchorman clip.” Check it out below.

Everyone on the Internet forgot what day it is. Just fooling!

Ah, April Fools’: The one day when you can’t believe everything you read online.

A Google product that leverages “photo-auditory-olfactory sensory convergence,” a Twitter initiative that asks users to pay for vowels, and bacon-flavored mouthwash are just the tip of the jocular iceberg this year. Read on for a list of some of the best gags we’ve come across so far; we’ll be updating it throughout the day.

The search giant/omnipotent Internet god’s next big project? Searchable smells. Somehow, this still doesn’t sound as ridiculous as Google Glass.

Jennifer Lawrence talks John Stamos, Puppy Bowl, and beer on 'Conan' -- VIDEO

Jennifer Lawrence is just like you: She’s open about a crush on John Stamos from his Full House days, and thinks the Puppy Bowl is “genius.”

Lawrence continued her quest for total talk show domination last night on Conan, with an appearance that started off on a gushing note. “I’ve been watching the show for 15 years and I’m 22 years old,” she said. “The producer said to me, ‘Andy Richter’s going to hug you,’ and I started tearing up.” She explained that prior to this interview, O’Brien had swung by her dressing room and she had forced him to do many of his signature bits for her, including the String Dance.

The love was clearly mutual. While O’Brien praised her performance in Silver Linings Playbook, he also had fun teasing the star, who could more than keep up with him. While talking about a Super Bowl party she threw for her friends at her house, she explained that her plans were more about a little event that happened prior to the big game. “It was just a lot of drinking, I guess,” Lawrence said of the party. “We watched the Puppy Bowl…. It’s just puppies! And then they have a little camera in the water bowl — it’s genius!” READ FULL STORY
