Mel Brooks chimes in on 'The Interview' debacle

Mel Brooks has directed some controversial comedies during his legendary career, so he understands how Seth Rogen and James Franco might be feeling now that The Interview has been pulled from its Dec. 25 release date.

In their comedy—which was the cause of a gigantic cyberattack on Sony—two TV journalists assassinate North Korean leader-for-life Kim Jong-un.

Of course, as Brooks told Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday night, “I waited ’til Hitler was dead,” he said. “I don’t know how crazy [North Korea is], so I’m going to ask you to stop talking about it.” READ FULL STORY

The year late-night got it right... and dodged another meltdown

Was it really as simple as getting rid of Jay Leno?

For the longest time, late-night television was a battlefield. Beginning with Johnny Carson’s retirement in 1992—which set up the Leno/Letterman divide that would define the landscape for two decades—and best epitomized by the disastrous 2009 Tonight Show handover and subsequent takeback from Conan O’Brien, late-night has always been a bloody zero-sum conflict that inflated every minor change to the equation into a major tectonic shift.

NBC so bungled the Leno/O’Brien transition that when rumors began to emerge in early 2013 that the last-place network was planning to push top-rated Leno out for good and hand the keys to the Tonight Show to the younger, cooler Jimmy Fallon, another fiasco seemed inevitable. While the whispers grew, Leno fanned the flames on his show, making jokes about being knifed in the back by NBC execs. No one thought he would go quietly, and his critics, late-night rivals, and the other networks waited gleefully for another wave of schadenfreude. READ FULL STORY
