Jimmy Fallon, Conan O'Brien, Stephen Colbert, James Corden, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers. What do all these names have in common? They're all currently, or are going to be, late-night talk show hosts.

Ellen DeGeneres and Chelsea Handler
Chelsea Handler made sure her E! talk show Chelsea Latelywent out with a bang Tuesday night, thanks to some help from her celebrity friends.
The series finale
Seth Meyers continued his breakout year Monday night as the host of television's biggest night, the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards.
Hosting a major awards show is ostensibly an honor, but increasingly, in the world of live-tweeting, a thankless assignment — and one that was made even more tedious by the fact that this year's Emmy telecast occurred on a Monday. Did Meyers rise to the occasion?
It's been almost a year since Leah Remini left the Church of Scientology, of which she was a member for more than 30 years. However, now the King of Queens alum and former The Talk co-host is working on...

Chelsea Handler, Ellen DeGeneres
Chelsea Handler wants to put a stop to the reports that she's getting her own show on CBS.
