Conan O'Brien may have received mixed critiques for his Tonight Show debut, but the funnyman has the vote of confidence from one very important and powerful person: President Obama.
Taking a breather from his sit-down with Brian Williams, Obama, who once told O'Brien he ...
Neil Patrick Harris
Neil Patrick Harris fans hoping to see their fave be a cut-up as host of Sunday's Tony Awards (airing at 8 pm/ET, on CBS) will probably get some satisfaction. But those wanting to see the How I Met Your Mother star cut a rug or break out into song might come up empty.
"They have an opening planned that is bigger than they have ever had in Tony history. But I don't think I'm going to be involved in it," Harris shared in a press conference call.
Instead, Harris says he will take a cue from Hugh Jackman ...
Jon & Kate Plus 8
Jon Gosselin says he and his wife, Kate, are not exploiting their children on their hit show Jon & Kate Plus 8.
"Exploited? I don't even want to use that word," he tells People, "because I think it's ridiculous."

Any scoop to get us Mer-Der fans through the dog days of summer? Perhaps some "baby talk" about Grey's writing in Ellen Pompeo's pregnancy? — Hillary
MATT: Both Chyler Leigh and I are of the mind that Grey's Anatomy would be hard-pressed to accommodate Pompeo's pregnancy, if only because of the timing. "As far as I know they are not [writing it in]," Leigh told me, pointing out that by the time the ABC serial resumes production, "Ellen will be, like, seven months [along]." The only way I see it happening — and at least one source allows, "It could go either way" — is if Season 6 picks up five or six months after the recent finale. Such a jump would also allow poor George time to heal and look like recast Eddie Cibrian. (I kid!)
If Fox is serious about Fringe (and aren't we all), why is it forcing it to compete against CSI, Grey's Anatomy and The Office on Thursdays? — Anita
MICKEY: At first blush, moving Fringe to such a powerhouse night would appear to be a suicide mission. But Fox entertainment prez Kevin Reilly ...
Mary-Louise Parker wants to set the record straight: She loves being naked.
The star of Showtime's Weeds (Season 5 premieres Monday, June 8 at 10 pm/ET) is speaking out in response to a recent interview with More magazine that gave the impression that she regretted doing a nude scene that appeared in the Season 4 finale episode. "They made it sound like I was like, 'They made me take my clothes off and chained me to the bathtub,'" Parker says. What's the naked truth? Read on...
The Jay Leno Show will debut on Sept. 14, NBC announced Tuesday. The show will air Monday through Friday at 10 pm/ET, eating up one-third of the Peacock's once-valuable prime time programming space.
