Stephen Colbert and wife Evelyn
Stephen Colbert's alter egomaniac on The Colbert Report may be a hawk, but the real Colbert is a peace-loving guy, at least when it comes to the late-night battlefield. We caught up with the Comedy Central cutup — in a rare interview out of character — at the opening-night gala for the Montclair Film Festival in his adopted home state of New Jersey (his wife Evelyn is one of the fest's organizers).

12. Worst Dating Rule: Ryan Lochte may not want to do The Bachelor, but he's still looking for love on What Would Ryan Lochte Do? the only way he knows how. Seriously, he only knows one way: take a girl out for a little raw fish, because he's "never met a girl that didn't like sushi." (Until he meets Megan, who has never eaten sushi or even heard of wontons.) When his older sisters learn this, they reprimand him for taking all his dates to the same place. "It might be the same place. It might be the same table," he says. "But it's a...
A.J. Clemente, David Letterman
(Accidental) potty-mouth fired news anchor A.J. Clemente is setting his sights on ESPN, he tells David Letterman on Wednesday's Late Show.
"If ESPN comes knocking ..." Clemente said with a sly smile and a shaky foot when Letterman asked if he would consider returning to his old broadcasting job in North Dakota.

Our best moments of the week:
12. Best Dynasty Homage: There's been a lot of death and violence on The Following, but until this week, the show had been seriously lacking one key dramatic television component: a catfight. Fortunately, we can check off that box after Claire confronts Emma, the Follower who posed as her nanny and kidnapped her son. Claire slams her against the wall in a chokehold and repeatedly insists, "I'm going to kill you." Just the kind of woman who might marry a serial killer, ay? We finally...
Lindsay Lohan and David Letterman
It's the question on everyone's minds: Isn't Lindsay Lohan supposed to be in rehab?
Instead, the troubled 26-year-old actress pops up on the Late Show with David Letterman Tuesday — her first appearance on the show since 2007 — and things go less than smoothly.

After first chiding Letterman for not reading up on her latest updates in the tabloids, Lohan clarifies that...
Chelsea Handler, David Letterman
Chelsea Handler appeared on The Late Show Friday night and — no surprise — the comedienne didn't hold back.
When he took The Tonight Show stage on Wednesday, Jay Leno openly addressed that he wouldn't be heading the show that much longer.
"I got to be honest with you, I had a really awkward...
Shortly after NBC announced that Jimmy Fallon would be taking over The Tonight Show from Jay Leno next year, David Letterman got a phone call. But the call wasn't from Leno, Fallon or even Conan O'Brien.
"I got a call from my mom today. She says, 'Well, David, I see you...
Jay Leno will leave The Tonight Show (again) next spring. What's he doing after that? More stand-up, he tells The New York Times, but no TV — for now. "I've done this job for a long time and I really enjoy it," he tells the paper. "Would I do it again? Believe me, the phone's not ringing off the hook. It will be nice if people seem interested. But I'll let it sit where it is."
Even if no one is calling right now (doubtful), it's hard to believe that Leno — who hasn't hinted at retirement since the Conan O'Brien Tonight Show succession plan was announced in 2004 — will be off our screens for too long. So what are his options? We weigh the possibilities...
Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon
Hours after Jimmy Fallon officially got tapped as the (eventual) successor to the Tonight Show throne, his future late-night competition had something to say about it.
