Conan O’Brien, who’ll return to New York City to host his TBS show there the week of Oct. 31, made an advance trip to visit with Jimmy Fallon, who now shoots in O’Brien’s old studio. “That’s right, you were here for 16 years,” Fallon said on last night’s Late Night. “And then… what happened?” Watch the clip below.

Wouldn’t it be nice if Ryan Gosling made the talk-show rounds at least once a week? Granted, it’s certainly starting to feel that way considering he’s had three movies to promote (Crazy Stupid Love, Drive, The Ides of March) over the past few months, but the guy is one seriously entertaining talk-show guest. Plus, he’s easy on the eyes, if you catch my drift. (Pssst, it means he’s very, very handsome.)
Gosling proved all this once again Monday night when he visited Conan and chatted about, among other things, his gripe with Disney (which, surprisingly enough, had nothing to do with The Mickey Mouse Club.) READ FULL STORY »
Nicole Scherzinger continued her second-act transformation from bargain-pop-diva to reality-TV-Queen-in-waiting on last night’s episode of Conan. It all started because the X Factor judge was wearing a dress that was, shall we say, a bit skimp-tastic. “It’s like it’s painted on,” said Conan, “You look fantastic. You may suffocate.” Nicole agreed: “I feel like a sausage!” she said, and boy oh boy I bet that bread is happy, amiright? Anyhow, after a couple minutes of casual banter about The X Factor, Conan’s eyes undeniably trended downwards towards the chesticular region. “Focus, Conan,” Nicole commanded. “Awwwwooooga!” said Conan. We have footage of it all right here: READ FULL STORY »
While we have all the confidence in the world that Jane Lynch will do a stellar job hosting the Emmys this Sunday, there’s no question that the Glee star has some tough acts to follow. Just last year, Jimmy Fallon knocked it out of the park early with his Springsteen-inspired, cameo-heavy (Jon Hamm! Betty White!… Kate Gosselin?) musical number, while Neil Patrick Harris — who had his own musical number — did what he does best in 2009, emceeing the evening with his usual poise and charm. (Just as he did the Tonys!)
But were they the best hosts ever? READ FULL STORY »
Conan O'Brien and Jesse Eisenberg have a Self-Efface-Off. Watch now...or don't, it's cool, they don't mind.
Aww, Jesse Eisenberg. Does your adorable awkwardness know no bounds?
Apparently not, as he competed with Conan O’Brien to decide, once and for all, which one of them is the most meek celebrity in all the land during the first — and last — ever Self-Efface-Off. My money was on Eisenberg going into the event (see: every interview he’s ever done), and things were looking good for the 30 Minutes or Less star right out of the gate. Before the game even started, Coco asked Eisenberg, “Are you ready to do this?” to which he sheepishly replied, “Probably not.” Watch the entire clip below, as Eisenberg and O’Brien field even tougher questions like “What do you think women like about you most?” and the dreaded “How are you?” and find out who the, er–winner?–was.
Who do you think should have won the Self-Efface-Off on Conan, PopWatchers? Now let’s all go give Jesse Eisenberg a great big hug, shall we?
George Lopez faced his audience last night for the first time since TBS announced that Thursday’s show will be his final episode. The audience booed after Lopez shared the sad news, but chuckles won out after Lopez revealed his plans for the future. “Like every TV star before me, I’ma find some crack. I’ma get on the pipe!,” he joked, at Charlie Sheen’s expense. “Lose that unwanted 110 pounds I been trying to lose. But I’m taking it good, I’m straight, believe me. I’m fine. My goddesses… are a wreck. They left me. I’m a losing teeth.” Watch the clip here or below. READ FULL STORY »
It’s season 42 of Sesame Street come Sept. 26 (check your local listings), and the guest list could not be hotter. Among those on tap: Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Robin Williams; up-and-coming actresses Emma Stone, Mila Kunis, and Amy Adams; Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Rico Rodriguez; Community’s Joel McHale and Ken Jeong; The Office’s John Krasinski; late night hosts Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel, and Conan O’Brien; musicians Elvis Costello and Bruno Mars; The Daily Show’s Samantha Bee and Jason Jones; The Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki; funny guys Seth Rogen and Andy Samberg; Tony winner Sutton Foster; New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees; the New York Knicks’ Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony; and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. How’s that for variety?
Which guest appearance are you most psyched for? McHale, according to the caption on this photo, at some point, “demonstrates the word ‘prickly’ with the help of his cactus, pineapple and porcupine pals.” Yes, they look very friendly in this picture. I cannot wait. Sadly, we have no idea what Ferguson is demonstrating in the shot below of him with three chickens, but we love it. We’ve also got a surprisingly dignified portrait of Jeong with Elmo for you as well. READ FULL STORY »
Cowboys & Aliens barely won the box-office weekend, and for awhile there, Harrison Ford may have been sweating his film’s rivalry with the second-place The Smurfs. He told Conan O’Brien last night that his own son elected to see the smurfier movie — but that he was attempting to get his ticket money returned. Then, he went all Chewbacca on Papa Smurf. Take a look. READ FULL STORY »
When Jason Sudeikis hosted the MTV Movie Awards earlier this month, he made quite a few people squirm (we’re guessing January Jones, especially), but the Horrible Bosses star took it to the next level when he visited Conan last night. Sudeikis recalled a recent interview with New York Magazine‘s Scott Brown, in which the two went to get reflexology done together. The SNL funnyman, knowing it is often way funnier to show than tell on a talk show (he also shared a hilarious, albeit unintentionally inappropriate voicemail he received from the government, as well as a scandalous picture he snapped of Kevin Spacey on the set of Horrible Bosses), brought out two foot masseurs (sorry, Andy!) to get the same thing done on television. Watch it all unfold around the 6:25 mark and try to keep it together as Coco loses it when his sensitive toes get touched. READ FULL STORY »
During his visit to Conan last night, Neil Patrick Harris revealed the wonderful news that Coco could be appearing on an upcoming episode of How I Met Your Mother next season. But, rest easy PopWatchers, this won’t be some celebrity stunt casting in the same vein as former guest stars like Jennifer Lopez or Nick Swisher. Rather, O’Brien snagged a coveted walk-on part by outbidding himself at a charity auction (watch NPH retell the amusing story beginning at the 4:45 mark).
This has us excited for a number of reasons, mainly in that two of our favorite worlds, Conan O’Brien and HIMYM, would be colliding. Here’s to hoping the producers actually do let him play just a guy at MacLarens (O’Brien rightly argued, “I think it’s much funnier if I’m in the bar in the background”) who occasionally turns around to smile directly into the camera and inexplicably breaks into the puppet string dance. Do I even need to say it, PopWatchers? It would be legen– READ FULL STORY »
