Emmy Watch: How the Late Night Upheaval Could Shake Up the Variety Series Competition

Jay Leno

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... read more

Dean Winters Is Back on 30 Rock — Who Else Should Return?

Dean Winters

As 30 Rock heads towards its series finale, it should come as no surprise that we'll see plenty of our favorite familiar faces returning.

Top Moments: Conan's Triumphant Reunion and a Pleasurable Horror Story

Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Fallon

Our top moments of the week:

12. Tastiest Defense: How do you know when your airline passenger is done? You stick a fork in him, naturally. Or at least, that's what Maggie does on Pan Am when a male first-class flyer (and first-class sleazebag) tries to feel her up and pull into the bathroom. It's about 50 years later, but we'd still stab someone with a fork if they pulled that crap with us.

11. The Edge of Sanity Award: Susan deals with her immense guilt over helping to hide Carlos' murder on Desperate Housewives the only way she knows how... read more

Conan O'Brien

Conan O'Brien addressed Dartmouth's 2011 graduating class in typical self-deprecating fashion. For proof, look no further than his opening statement, which refers to President George H.W. Bush, who was there to receive an honorary degree:

"Before I begin, I must point out that behind me sits a highly admired president of the United States and decorated war hero, while I, a cable television talk show host, has been chosen to stand here and impart wisdom. I pray I never witness a more damning example of what is wrong with America today"...

2010's Best Episodes: Jersey Shore's Smackdown and Conan's Goodbye

Conan O'Brien

It was a great year for TV, which made it very difficult to choose the top 25 episodes of 2010. Recalling and, in some cases, rewatching the stand-out moments was a holiday treat. We got our first glimpse of a bespectacled Clark Kent and saw Snooki pummel Angelina. We wept as Jack Shephard took his final breath and cheered as Leslie took down a mischievous rodent wreaking havoc in Pawnee. Here's the first batch of TVGuide.com's weeklong countdown of the year's best episodes... read more
