When Johnny Carson signed off from The Tonight Show in 1992, his reign as the King of Late Night was celebrated with an Emmy win for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series. Granted, the competition that year was sparse: Fox's sketch-comedy show In Living Color and NBC's Late Night with David Letterman were the only others nominated.
This year, as newly retired Tonight Show host Jay Leno attempts to secure one final nomination in the category now known as...
David Letterman will retire from The Late Show in 2015, he announced during his Thursday night show.
"I phoned [CBS President and CEO Leslie Mooves] just before the program, and I said 'Leslie, it's been great, you've been great, and the network has been great, but...

Bada bing! The Writers Guild of America has named HBO's The Sopranos, created by David Chase, the best-written TV series of all time.

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...
It's Thanksgiving, so what else do you have to do besides sit around in a tryptophan-induced stupor and peruse the Internet for funny videos?

At the end of the episode, Damon soaks in a bubble bath with his new lady Andie. In true vampire fashion, Damon grabs her for an intense kiss, and then nibbles on her neck until we see blood drip down her soaking wet back.
