Run The Jewels’ Killer Mike was on Thursday’s Late Show to promote Trigger Warning, his six-episode Netflix series premiering on Friday.

Jimmy Kimmel makes a long shot appeal for Donald Trump to end his government shutdown Jimmy Kimmel makes a long shot appeal for Donald Trump to end his government shutdown

Jimmy Kimmel hasn’t been subtle about his disdain for the current president over the two years since Donald Trump took office. (Yes, it has only been two years.) The latest act to incur Kimmel’s snarky ire is the Trump-mandated, now 26-day-long shutdown of the entire United States federal government in a snit over…

Jimmy Fallon gets to play Hamilton in Puerto Rico, but at least it's for a good cause Jimmy Fallon gets to play Hamilton in Puerto Rico, but at least it's for a good cause

The pally bond between amiably irritating late-night goofball Jimmy Fallon and adorably brilliant goofball Lin-Manuel Miranda might be a little annoying, but, if we’re being honest, it’s because Fallon gets to do all manner of cool stuff with the Hamilton creator that we want to be doing. Lip-syncing to a polka-fied Hamilton remix

On The Tonight Show, Samuel L. Jackson counts down his five favorite Samuel L. Jackson characters On The Tonight Show, Samuel L. Jackson counts down his five favorite Samuel L. Jackson characters

On Monday’s Tonight Show, Glass star Samuel L. Jackson revealed some pretty surprising secrets. For one, he’s a really good pal of Judge Judy Sheindlin, which suggests all manner of action comedy casting possibilities. For another, on December 21, the perpetually badass actor turned 70, which, to steal a quote from …

50 Cent beefs with Stephen Colbert over Helen Mirren, explains his discount beef with Ja Rule 50 Cent beefs with Stephen Colbert over Helen Mirren, explains his discount beef with Ja Rule

50 Cent (or “Half-Dollar,” as Stephen Colbert insists on calling the rapper, actor, and Bitcoin and champagne mogul) turned up on Friday’s Late Show to swap tales of the benefits of being rich. Of course, there’s rich and super-rich, and guy with late-night CBS money Colbert was left goofing incredulously on 50's…

On Late Night, John Goodman talks The Conners, reveals what Lebowski quote he hears the most On Late Night, John Goodman talks The Conners, reveals what Lebowski quote he hears the most

John Goodman was on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Thursday, talking about what it’s like shooting the Roseanne-less The Conners. “It was really odd,” Goodman replied to host Seth Meyers’ delicately phrased preamble about the offscreen behavior that led to former star Roseanne Barr’s abrupt departure, “We used to have…

On The Late Show, Kevin Hart talks more about how he's done talking about his anti-gay comments On The Late Show, Kevin Hart talks more about how he's done talking about his anti-gay comments

With the now-hostless Oscars hurtling toward us in February, the comic responsible for the Academy’s decision that an Oscar host is just too damn much trouble continued his TV apology tour on Wednesday’s Late Show. Or, rather, Kevin Hart continued his non-apology tour, as he reiterated the litany of “I’m over it”s the…

Andy Samberg thanks the Guardians Of The 99 for saving his job, heckles Jimmy Fallon at his Andy Samberg thanks the Guardians Of The 99 for saving his job, heckles Jimmy Fallon at his

Andy Samberg joined old Saturday Night Live buddy and new network-mate Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday’s Tonight Show to celebrate the return of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Granted a reprieve after being unceremoniously shitcanned by Fox, the enduringly hilarious cop sitcom comes back on Thursday on its new NBC home, right before…

Jimmy Kimmel returns, hires employees of a government that still has not Jimmy Kimmel returns, hires employees of a government that still has not

Late-night hosts and their staffs took the holidays off, presumably to sit in darkened rooms with no internet, drink heavily, and gradually decompress from the stresses of processing the unending Trump administration horror-news cycle. At least they’ve all got that sweet TV money coming in, unlike the federal…

On Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Billy Eichner's Namor tells his DC counterpart, "Fuck Aquaman" On Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Billy Eichner's Namor tells his DC counterpart, "Fuck Aquaman"

What with Jason Momoa’s Aquaman battling both a long line of “Aquaman is lame” jokes (with some success), and the critics (um, sort of), the concept of another big-budget, big screen underwater superhero franchise seems a no-brainer. At least that’s what Marvel’s Namor (a.k.a. The Sub-Mariner) thinks, as the king of…

Wednesday’s pre-holidays Full Frontal saw host Samantha Bee turning her rage-laugh rundown of the weekly horrors perpetrated by the person currently in the White House into a full-blown holiday pageant.

Vikings teases a big death, but shows a few promising signs of life Vikings teases a big death, but shows a few promising signs of life

“The Lost Moment” begins right where “A New God” left us, with the self-anointed god Ivar ranting about his divinity and promising his people (and fellow gods) a sacrifice. The tease was that it would be Hvitserk, ever sulking and drunkenly puncturing his younger brother’s pretensions toward godhood (and impossible…
