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...
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.
Dean Winters, who portrayed Liz's (Tina Fey) horrible boyfriend Dennis Duffy, has been tapped to return in the upcoming Thursday, Nov. 29 episode, Vulture reports.
Yes, we're excited to see what trouble he'll bring, but there are so many other characters we'd love to see return as well! Here's our wish list for the final season:
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...
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"...
Will Ferrell, Conan
The Beardpocalypse is over.
Making good on his nearly monthlong threat of shaving Conan O'Brien's beard, Will Ferrell dropped by Conan Monday and finally took his clippers (aka Excalibeard) to ...
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...
The set for Conan O'Brien's new TBS late-night show is just two miles from where the host served his ill-fated stint on NBC's The Tonight Show. But O'Brien's longtime sidekick Andy Richter says the mood feels a million miles away. "It's kind of like...
It's been 10 months since Conan O'Brien last graced The Tonight Show stage, but he hasn't left everything from his 13 years at NBC behind for good.
The former Late Night host, who left the network in January, says he still plans to...
Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band will be the house band for Conan O'Brien's upcoming TBS show, the network announced Tuesday.
Andy Richter re-teams with Conan O'Brien
Vivino, the former associate music director, arranger, guitarist and vocalist for Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien and Late Night with Conan O'Brien, replaces Max Weinberg as bandleader for Conan. Weinberg, who served as bandleader on both of O'Brien's previous shows for a total of 17 years, opted not to join Conan after ...
Max Weinberg said having massive open-heart surgery earlier this year influenced his decision not to join Conan O'Brien's upcoming TBS talk show.
"On Feb. 8, I came to the end of a 26-year watchful, waiting odyssey that culminated in 12 hours ...
