We reported yesterday that Celebrity Apprentice winner Arsenio Hall will return to late-night TV in the fall of 2013. As witnessed in a recent Inside TV podcast prior to his Apprentice victory, Hall is both a gracious guy and a gifted gabber. But, nearly two decades after The Arsenio Hall Show went off the air, Hall faces an entirely new TV landscape. With more channels and an exodus of new generation late-night icons like Conan O’Brien and fellow stand-up comedians Chelsea Handler and Kathy Griffin to cable, can a post-millennial Arsenio work? Below, a few suggestions… READ FULL STORY »

iCarly star “The Great Miranda Cosgrove” stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night to play charades, but received an R-rated surprise from fellow guest John Lithgow, who didn’t quite keep the game PG.
Check out their game of charades below, and find out the answer to the questions: What’s the dirtiest way you can pantomime The Dictator? How uncomfortable can you make a teenage star? READ FULL STORY »
When Amy Poehler left SNL in December of ’08, Kristen Wiig suddenly became the show’s only full-fledged female cast member. And even after Abby Elliott was officially promoted to repertory player in 2010, Wiig still stood out as one of the series’ most visible performers — and its most visible female player by far. With a dynamo like Wiig dominating the stage and taking nearly every female speaking role, it was nigh on impossible for any other woman to make an impression.
Now, though, Wiig is freeing up her Saturday nights — and the sketch show’s four remaining ladies (Elliott, Vanessa Bayer, Nasim Pedrad, and newcomer Kate McKinnon) may finally have a chance to shine. But which one of these funny girls has what it takes to fill Wiig’s formidable heels? Let’s consider them one by one:
Kardashians on Leno: Kourtney blames her pregnancy weight on 'too much In-N-Out' (she means burgers!) -- VIDEO
This just in: Kourtney Kardashian only recently had her first In-N-Out experience. And she loved it! Or was it Five Guys? Man, what will these kids come up with next?
The reality TV sisters stopped by The Tonight Show last night, and Kourtney discussed pregnancy cravings and her impending labor and delivery. Apparently momager Kris Jenner is still negotiating the 3-D cinematic labor doc’s distribution rights because Kourtney wouldn’t reveal whether she’d share her second child’s birth on Keeping Up With the Kardashians like she did with baby Mason.
Youngest sister Khloe was on hand to provide a wry kommentary as usual, though she also talked about her move back from Dallas with her husband, exiled NBA player Lamar Odom. When Leno asked Kim about Kanye West’s “Too Cold,” well you’ll just have to watch to see her ditzy debate about whether the song is indeed written about her. (Hint to Kim: It is.) Watch the interview below. READ FULL STORY »
Maybe Jimmy Fallon should make a point of inviting an ex-Saturday Night Live cast member to every episode of Late Night. Whether he’s helping Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell perform a live version of “Lazy Sunday” or riffing about fake movies with Amy Poehler, Fallon thrives when he can bounce off of another Studio 8H veteran — and last night’s chat with Will Ferrell was no exception.
During the interview, Ferrell got big laughs by claiming that he’s serving as musical guest as well as host of SNL this week — and that Usher’s name is actually pronounced “oosher.” (There are, according to Ferrell, two umlauts over the “u.”) Then he pushed the absurdity further, promising to bring back well-loved (and totally made up) recurring sketches like The Lemon Brothers and Garfy McCrungle. But the best part came when he and Fallon reminisced about the times Ferrell’s sketches fell totally flat — and the entire cast gathered behind the cameramen to “watch him eat it.”
Watch Ferrell on Fallon below — and check out Part 2 to see how loudly the audience screams when Ferrell says the word “cowbell.”
Howard Stern knows what you think about him becoming a judge on America’s Got Talent — and that’s because he thinks it too. “What a crazy idea to put me on a family show!” he told Matt Lauer jovially on Today this morning. “Somebody at NBC should be fired for that, right?”
But in between reveling in his own controversial nature, ribbing Lauer — at one point he suggested the Today anchor was on crack — and lobbing barbed quips (“I liked when Al Roker was fat better. It’s like, put a pin in him!”), Stern proved that he might just be what reality television needs.
“You know, I watch American Idol sometimes, and those three judges, they don’t have a word of criticism,” Stern told Lauer. “And I think that’s selfish. I think you owe it to the contestants to offer criticism.”
Stern promised to be both compassionate and honest on the talent competition — sort of like a slightly more approachable Simon Cowell. And if his judging persona is anything like his Today interview persona, this season of AGT could very well be must-see TV. Check out Stern’s chat with Lauer below. READ FULL STORY »
If you only watch two minutes of The Vampire Diaries‘ star Nina Dobrev’s interview with Conan O’Brien from Wednesday, it needs to be the clip below. Conan asks her to show him a yoga move, and she uses him as a human wall to do the scorpion. As fellow guest Joel McHale says, “This is awesome.” And that was before he saw where Nina put her feet.
Still, it’s the dismount we think Conan will recall most fondly — and what made him take a victory lap. Good times! READ FULL STORY »
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Johnny Depp must be one of the most flattered actors in Hollywood. Depp is famous for playing idiosyncratic characters who boast intricate, unique hairstyles and costumes — making him catnip for movie fans who like to play dress-up.
On Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, Depp got up-close and personal with a few of the dudes who make their living as professional Depp impersonators. Well, sort of — Kimmel’s cousin Sal gathered the impersonators outside the show’s studio. Depp then had a chance to speak with them from the safe distance of Jimmy’s set. Though the Oscar nominee was almost disappointingly chilled out when chatting with his doppelgangers — the guy is so laid back that he’s practically horizontal — their interaction did yield a few gems… like when Depp admitted that he’s never seen Edward Scissorhands. Gasp!
Joan Q. Public is probably convinced that being Kristen Stewart is a pretty good deal. After all, the girl is a 22-year-old millionaire whose entire job seems to be staring into Robert Pattinson’s eyes… except when she’s tasked with staring into Chris Hemsworth’s eyes instead.
But as Stewart revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, her life isn’t always easy. From rogue nails on the set of Breaking Dawn, to crazy fans, to the bloodthirsty Molly Ringwald, Stewart faces plenty of threats. Heck, the stress of being KStew is so bad that the actress even forgot to wash her hair before last night’s Met Ball. Mortifying! READ FULL STORY »
