Ashton Kutcher is over Charlie Sheen's 'Two and a Half Men' comments

When Ashton Kutcher appeared on Conan on Oct. 28, Conan O’Brien asked him about Charlie Sheen’s recent comments suggesting he’d like to return to Two and a Half Men in its final season. And it’s clear in his response that there’s not much love for his sitcom predecessor.

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 Conan O'Brien and Will Arnett pay tribute to Robin Williams

Monday’s episode of Conan ended on an unusually somber note. The cause: During the course of taping that evening’s show, Conan O’Brien, Andy Richter, and their guest Will Arnett got word of Robin Williams’ unexpected death.

“We tape these shows a few hours early, and by the time you see this now on TV, I’m sure that you’ll know. I’m sorry to anybody in our studio audience that I’m breaking this news—this is absolutely shocking and horrifying, and so upsetting on every level,” a visibly shaken O’Brien explained at the end of the show.

He and his cohort then took an opportunity to briefly salute their comrade. The most moving words came from Arnett, who worked with Williams in the 2006 film RV.

“As funny as he was—he’s truly one of the all-time greats—he was even better as a person,” the Arrested Development star said. “He was even more fantastic—just the loveliest, sweetest, one of the kindest guys that I’ve ever worked with. Just such a soft, warm, emotionally sweet guy, and it’s a major, major loss for everybody.” READ FULL STORY

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.

Watch outtakes from Dave Franco and Conan O'Brien's Tinder bit

Conan-Dave-Franco-Tinder.jpg

Conan O’Brien recently enlisted Dave Franco to go on a Tinder adventure with him. The stars set up profiles using fake names—Chip Whitley for O’Brien; Djengus Roundstone for Franco—and new profile pictures, then got to it. And by “got to it,” we mean they tried very hard to find a woman who would agree to meet up with them.

Conan O'Brien is fluent in emoji

The host of TBS’s Conan is a man of many talents, like telling jokes, interviewing guests, and looking exactly like Tarja Halonen, former president of Finland. As it turns out, he’s also got another secret aptitude—Conan O’Brien is also fully fluent in the strange language of emojis, a.k.a. the goofy, tiny pictures of eggplants and smiley poops that have largely replaced more prosaic forms of digital and textual communication, like words.

What does “castle balloon crescent moon sleepy bearded face” mean when translated into plain English, or “heart shoe basketball saxophone”? (That one’s kinda dirty.) O’Brien knows—and after watching the following clip, you will too. BRB; I’ve gotta go tell everyone I know that this is the episode of Dr. Phil where the rodeo clown has a heart attack. (Update: The video has been removed from Conan’s official channels, which is a shame. Guess you’ll just have to trust us on that.)

Sharon Osbourne has had enough of crappy singing shows -- VIDEO

Sharon Osbourne has had it with singing competition shows — all 600 of them.

Some background: Osbourne was a judge on the original X Factor in the U.K. from 2004 to 2007 and once again in 2013, as well as on America’s Got Talent from 2007 to 2012. But this doesn’t make her a fan of these sorts of series.

Chelsea Handler’s Chelsea Lately will end in 2014 after an eight-year run. As a result, Handler’s been the subject of many a rumor about what she’s planning to do next.

But don’t believe everything you read. On Monday night, Chelsea stopped by Conan to clarify that despite reports about a move to CBS or Netflix, she hasn’t actually made any decisions about what she’s doing after Chelsea Lately: “Everything that’s printed about me is a lie.” (Note to readers: This post is not a lie.)
