Jay Leno

The longtime 'Late Show' host confirmed that he will be walking away from his late night talk-show gig on last Thursday's episode (April 3rd).

And now Letterman's onetime rival, Jay Leno, has weighed in on what he thinks of the 66 year-olds departure.

A Week In News: A Screen Legend Dies, A TV Legend Makes His Exit, And The World's Weirdest Boxing Match

Philip Seymour Hoffman

RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman: The world lost a true talent when actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his apartment last Sunday after a suspected heroin overdose, aged 46. Thougha autopsy results were ruled inconclusive, drugs paraphernalia was found littered all over his house after the Oscar-winning actor suffered a relapse to substance abuse despite having been clean for more than 20 years.

The father-of-three's break-up with his partner Mimi O'Donnell is said to have caused the Capote star to turn to drugs and not the confusion over his sexuality, as was falsely alleged by the National Enquirer. Since the death, four suspected drug dealers have been arrested and are being questioned with regards to selling Hoffman, who was found with a syringe in his arm, a bad batch. Sadly, we have lost one of the only actors working today whose acting prowess meant we'd instinctively trust any film with his name. Philip Seymour Hoffman (1967-2014).

Jay Leno Content And Hitting The Road After "Tonight Show" Departure


Jay Leno Jimmy Fallon

Last night, Leno bid farewell to The Tonight Show with what many considered to be a slightly sub-par show. Still, it did what it set out to do – with Jimmy Fallon as the guest, Leno officially turned over the reigns to his successor and the circle of life moves on along.

Jay Leno
Without having to do a show every week, Leno will return to his first love - standup.

Now the only question is – what will the 63-year-old host do now that there’s a massive gap in his schedule? According to an interview Leno did recently with the LA Times, another TV show isn’t something he’s willing to try for. Instead, he’s returning to his roots.

Jay Leno is leaving The Tonight Show after his final show on Thursday to be replaced by Jimmy Fallon, but Leno’s farewell week has been a non-stop treat so far. Last night (Wednesday) saw an appearance by Sandra Bullock as the main guest, which quickly devolved into a teary-eyed compliment fest.

Jay Leno
Leno is having a full week of farewell shows with some of his favorite guests through the years.

"You've always been so kind. That's saying a lot in this business, because we like to be mean," Bullock said. "There's not been one time you haven't treated me like I had something to offer – even when the film was awful and you knew it, you never let me see it in your eyes."

Miley Cyrus Advises Justin Bieber To "Add A Nighclub" To His House To Avoid Trouble [Video]


Miley Cyrus Justin Bieber Jay Leno

Miley Cyrus has waded in to the recent Justin Bieber debate, offering her own words of wisdom to the troubled star in an interview with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show. The 21 year-old pop star has had her fair share of media controversies, not least her MTV VMAs performance last summer, but nothing so career-destroying as the current media hurricane of negativity Bieber has found himself in.

"I know you're friends with Justin. Any advice you would give him?" asked Leno. "I would say [...] you got a lot of money. Pay people to make sure you don't get into trouble and party at your house," said Miley. "Buy a house and add a club to it," advised the well-intentioned 'We Can't Stop' singer.

Jerry Seinfeld Grabs Coffee, With Comedians, For Online Talk Show


Jerry Seinfeld Louis C.K. Patton Oswald Howard Stern Tina Fey Todd Barry Jay Leno

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee might sound like the name of a not-very-exciting viral video, but it is in fact Jerry Seinfeld’s own talk show. It is coincidentally a web series, which does exactly what it says on the tin – it’s an hour of Seinfeld and a fellow comedian riding around, drinking coffee and being (hopefully) very entertaining. The format was inspired by an episode of his infamous 90s sitcom. In the episode in question, Jerry’s pal George decided success might await him if he lived his failed life in the opposite manner.

Jerry Seinfeld, 2013 Hampton Classic
Seinfeld wanted to put a new spin on the classic talk show format.

“That,” recalls Seinfeld in a recent interview, “gave me the idea to create a talk show that was the opposite of the typical show. “With a typical talk show,” he explains via the Sun Times, “you have to go to a studio. You have to tell them in advance what you’re going to talk about. You have to dress up. You have to put on makeup. It’s very, very organized.

With The New Logo Unveiled, Jimmy Fallon's Takeover Of The Tonight Show Is Officially Official


Jimmy Fallon Jay Leno Seth Meyers

Just in case you had forgotten – we hadn’t – Jimmy Kimmel is set to take over The Tonight Show with Jay Leno from February 17. He made it official today, by tweeting the brand new logo for the show, now featuring his name. In case you want to get in on the social media action, the hashtag is #FallonTonight.

Fallon is excited to take over the Tonight Show from longtime host Leno.

It was announced earlier this year, that after many shifts at NBC, Leno would be replaced by Fallon and The Tonight Show will return to his original home in NYC. Before Fallon leaves his current home at Late Night, however, he will bow out one last time, with a special episode of the show, commemorating his run. A special, entitled “Best of Late Show with Jimmy Fallon” is set to air early in 2014. Fallon will then be replaced with Saturday Night Live alumn Seth Meyers, because NBC likes to keep it in the family apparently. Fallon even talked to the NY Daily News about some possible improvements that’ll be brought to the Tonight Show after his takeover.

Quentin Tarantino Working On A New Western, But Don't Worry, It Won't Be 'Django 2'


Quentin Tarantino Jay Leno

Good news Quentin Tarantino fans, QT is already working on his next picture, and like his last movie the filmmaker is heading to the Old West to tell his next story. The acclaimed filmmaker appeared on The Tonight Show and was chatting about the book-version of his 2012 film Django Unchained, at which point he began discussing his next move with host Jay Leno.

Quentin Tarantino Oscar
Quentin tasted Oscar glory for Django

For those of you fretting over the possibility that Tarantino might have finally bowed to studio pressure and made a sequel to one of his films, the director quickly assured his fans that he is not working on Django Unchained 2. Rather than produce a follow-up to Django, the director said that working on that film opened his eyes to the Western genre, a genre he had always admired but never worked on. Now he has been bitten by the Western bug and wants to carry on with what he started with Django.

From Much-Maligned President To Artist, Introducing George W. Bush


Jay Leno George W Bush

To be fair to ol’ George Bush, there aren’t any Presidents that aren’t maligned, but his was a special breed of maligned; every ridiculous sentence that came out of his mouth contained something worth satirizing, assuming he hadn’t managed to do it himself.

And now that he’s out of office, the 67-year-old has decided that painting is the best thing for him to do. He actually took up the hobby soon after he left office, and even hired a teacher to help him hone his craft. "There's a Rembrandt trapped in this body. Your job is to find it,” he told his teacher, Bush revealed while talking to Jay Leno.

Bush shared a painting of his dog Barney and a stray cat that he adopted called Bob, but it was a portrait of Jay Leno that really stole the show. "I can't make fun of him now,” announced the veteran talk show host after seeing his already ridiculous face in an even more absurd format.

Making her long-time-coming return to the late night talk show circuit, Kim Kardashian had a lot to discuss when she sat opposite Jay Leno on Tuesday (29 Oct.) night. Her appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, her first late night appearance since becoming a mother, gave her an oppertune moment to discuss the various gossip-making events that have surrounded the star since the birth of North West in June this year.

Shia LaBeouf's NSA Surveillance Claims Proven Correct


Shia LaBeouf Jay Leno

Shia LaBeouf's NSA worries were essentially proved correct over the weekend as further details emerged of technology giants' co-operation with US spy agencies. Apple, Facebook and Google issued strongly-worded denials that they had 'knowingly' participated in a scheme with the National Security Agency, providing emails, conversations, documents, photos and other materials from agents.

29-year-old former technical assistant to the CIA Edward Snowden is the individual responsible for leaking one of the most significant cover-ups in US political history, though was Hollywood star Shia LaBeouf the first to publically air his fears of the NSA on a mass scale? During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 2008, LaBeouf - the star of the Transformers movies - told the American public that "one in five phone calls which you make are recorded, and logged."

"I laughed at him [FBI agent who told Shia about the surveillance], and then he played back a phone conversation I had had two years prior to joining the picture [Eagle Eye]... And it was one of those 'What are you wearing?' kind of things."

Jay Leno Sticks It To NBC With Tonight Show Jokes


Jay Leno Jimmy Fallon

If Jay Leno is being ousted from The Tonight Show, with Jimmy Fallon replacing him, then he’s not going down without a fight. Maybe not a fight, but he’s certainly not going down without a few snide jokes.

So, the jokes. He started with: “Doctors in Canada were shocked after pulling a three-inch knife blade from the back of a 32-year old man. The knife had been in there for three years! Imagine that, the guy had a knife in his back for three years. He must’ve worked at NBC too. I was stunned by that.” And the second: “Have you heard about this alleged feud that I’m having with NBC? I think it’s going to be OK. This is real: I had dinner last night with a bunch of NBC executives. To make it up to me, what they did, they are sending my wife and I on an all expenses paid Carnival cruise. How about that? So it looks like it’s going to be OK. Fantastic!"

Leno Won't Leave NBC Without A Fight. Or At Least A Bit Of Sarcasm


Jay Leno Jimmy Fallon

After rumours that NBC was planning to dump late night host Jay Leno in favor of Jimmy Fallon next year, the veteran hasn’t taken it lightly, to say the least.

Ever since NBC made the confusing announcement (confusing because Leno is currently the network’s highest performer in ratings) the Tonight Show host has been slipping subtle (or not quite) jabs at NBC execs into his monologues. During a taping of the show yesterday, he directed not one, but two quips at NBC. First was the obvious strike: “Doctors in Canada were shocked after pulling a three-inch knife blade from the back of a 32-year old man. The knife had been in there for three years! Imagine that, the guy had a knife in his back for three years. He must’ve worked at NBC too. I was stunned by that.”

Ouch! We don’t know if the execs caught that one, but it certainly lets you know where Leno’s mind is. Later, he went for a milder approach: “Have you heard about this alleged feud that I’m having with NBC? I think it’s going to be OK. This is real: I had dinner last night with a bunch of NBC executives. To make it up to me, what they did, they are sending my wife and I on an all expenses paid Carnival cruise. How about that? So it looks like it’s going to be OK. Fantastic!”

Howard Stern Slams 'Insulting' Claims He's Taking Jimmy Fallon's Job


Howard Stern Jimmy Fallon Jay Leno

Howard Stern has reacted explosively to rumors he is set to take over from Jimmy Fallon in the late night slot on NBC. A New York Post report claimed that network executives are "grooming" the shock jock for the 12.3am time slot, should Fallon take over The Tonight Show from Jay Leno, whose contract is up in 2014.

However, Stern - the highest paid entertainer in radio - said on his show, "First of all, what an insult. Like, all the years of my career. I'm like, the biggest guy in radio. I've done film. I've done television. I mean, they act like I'm some kind of f--king beginner or something. Maybe if I'm really nice to NBC they'll let me take over Carson Daly's show at like 2 o'clock in the morning," Stern sarcastically quipped. 

The comments appear to suggest there's absolutely no chance Stern will be replacing Fallon, though it was considered a surprise when he agreed to be a judge on America's Got Talent. Furthermore, the Post quoted his wife Beth as saying, "He is one of the best interviewers out there," when quizzed on the possibility of her husband taking the job.

Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon – Better Get Used To That

Jay Leno Retirement – Was Jay Leno’s Louie Cameo A Cry For Help?


Jay Leno Jimmy Fallon

Jay Leno retirement? We never thought we’d here those words, but here they are. The Hollywood Reporter reported that two high-level industry sources as saying the end is neigh for Leno, and that the 2013-14 television season will be his last.

A Leno rep towed the party line, saying "We do not speculate on rumor," but the words of those sources have got people gossiping. So what will NBC do if their stalwart chat show host departs for a more relaxed lifestyle? Leno appeared on the (SPOILER) last few episodes of Louie, playing himself and bemoaning the life of a chat show host and doing 14 minutes every night. He hinted that he was once the cool hip guy, but he wasn’t any more. Is this how he feels in real life? More importantly, is this what the network think? Reports suggest Jimmy Fallon is the one to replace him, as he’ll pull in the younger viewers. Jay Leno is also very expensive, and NBC are looking to save as much money as possible. “The more time Jimmy Kimmel is in that slot, the more the young audience goes that way, the harder it is for Jimmy [Fallon] to keep that audience,” said THR’s source.

Confirmed: Jimmy Kimmel Really Doesn't Like Jay Leno


Jimmy Kimmel Jay Leno David Letterman

Jimmy Kimmel, whose show is moving to a new 11.35pm time slot, targets rival Jay Leno in a new interview with Rolling Stone magazine. The pair have history: beginning in 1992 when Leno won the Tonight Show job over David Letterman. As a huge fan of the latter host, Kimmel felt the job was stolen away from his hero.

Kimmel explains that years later, Leno courted him with weekly phone calls. He needed the younger host to give up his midnight time slot in order to make his own show happen. In recent years, the Live! host has taken numerous swipes at Leno, including saying "F*** him" during an interview with Bill Carter. In the new "marijuana-enhanced" interview with Rolling Stone, Kimmel said, "Leno hasn't been a good stand-up in 20 years. As a comedian, you can't not have disdain for what he's done. He totally sold out. He was a master chef who opened a Burger King." Leno still performs a stand-up routine at the L.A.-area Comedy and Magic Club every Sunday.

The pair's rivalry is about to intensify more-so, with Kimmel moving to the 11.35pm time slot to join Leno and his hero Letterman. It begins on Tuesday (January 8, 2013) with guests Jennifer Aniston and No Doubt.

Kimmel Slams Leno In Pot-Fuelled Rolling Stone Interview


Jimmy Kimmel Jay Leno David Letterman

Just a few days before his show moves to the coveted 11:35pm ET slot, it has come to light that Jimmy Kimmel slammed Leno in a Rolling Stone interview, the Daily Mail reports. In the interview, during which Kimmel is reportedly smoking blunts with the magazine’s reporter, he gives Jay Leno a hell of a verbal pasting.

“Leno hasn’t been a good stand-up in 20 years,” says Kimmel, who continues “as a comedian, you can’t not have disdain for what he’s done. He totally sold out." Kimmel’s show will go head to head with Jay Leno once it moves time slots but Kimmel reckons’ Leno’s days are pretty much numbered. “Jay Leno is not going to be able to stay in television forever and obviously, Jimmy Fallon is doing a great job, so it makes sense people would talk like this.”

When he was done laying into his rival, though, Kimmel showed his positive side and had nothing but praise for his other talk show rival, David Letterman. Speaking of his childhood idol, he said “If I beat David Letterman in the ratings, does that mean I’m better than Letterman? No f***ing way.” He continued “People are going to compare me and him for years to come — we’re being positioned as the Leno and Letterman of the next round,' Kimmel reportedly said. 'I like it because he’s a very worthy competitor.”

ABC To Move Jimmy Kimmel Live To Premium Time Slot


Jimmy Kimmel David Letterman Jay Leno

A battle of the giants is approaching – networks, hosts and late-night shows will be fighting it out for ratings this January, as the Jimmy Kimmel Live show on ABC moves to a later time slot.

The switch to 11.35 might not seem like a big deal to most – after all it’s only 25 minutes later than Kimmel’s original slot, but it’s a move long prepped for by ABC and long dreaded by rival networks NBC and CBS. The new time slot puts Kimmel in direct competition for ratings with household names Jay Leno and David Letterman and this means a lot to the JKL host.

“I know moving from midnight to 11:35 might not sound like a big deal — it’s only 25 minutes — but it’s probably the most important 25 minutes of my life, since the first 14 times I had sex,” Kimmel told his audience in August, on the day ABC announced the change. The network has been grooming Kimmel for the promotion throughout last year, and it’ll be very interesting to see where the show goes from here. Meanwhile, Jay and David have reacted in very different ways to the news. While Letterman has given his blessing to the new competitor, Leno will be moving his show ahead by one minute, starting at 11.34. A whole minute ahead of the new rival. Somehow, we feel that that might not cut it in the fight for ratings.

Did Kelsey Grammer's Love For Romney Get 'The Boss' Cancelled?


Kelsey Grammer Jay Leno

Kelsey Grammer has blamed his Republican political leanings for the cancellation of his acclaimed drama The Boss. The Starz TV network announced yesterday (November 20, 2012) that they would not be continuing the show, in which Kelsey plays the tyrannical Chicago mayor Tom Kane, The Daily Mail has reported.

This isn’t the first time that the former Frasier star has suggested that his support for the Republican party has held him back in the world of TV. Earlier this year, Kelsey was complaining to Jay Leno that his Republican ways were the reason that The Boss hadn’t been nominated for an Emmy. When Leno asked why the show had won a Golden Globe but hadn’t even been nominated for an Emmy, Kelsey replied “Yeah, its hard to figure. It may have to do with several things, honestly, but I think it’s possible, I mean, I am a, I’m a declared out of the closet Republican in Hollywood. Do I believe it’s possible that some young person, young voting actor, or even older voting member for the Emmys, would sit there and go, ‘Yeah, that’s a great performance, but oooooh, I just hate everything he stands for?’” He then answered his own question, with a degree of sarcasm, saying “I don’t believe that’s possible.”

In a statement, Starz said that it was “proud” of the show but had made the “difficult” decision not to continue with another series. Grammer may be citing his love for Romney as the reason behind the show’s cancellation but it’s worth looking at the viewer figures, too. The Boss raked in 659,000 for its premiere and a season peak of 440,000 viewers, Compared to the 1.25 million that Starz’s other major drama, Magic City attracted, it looks as though other factors may also be at play here.

Donald Trump Obama 'October Surprise': What Do The Celebs Think?


Donald Trump Barack Obama Jay Leno Ricky Gervais Adam Levine

A special Donald Trump announcement, which saw him promise to donate $5 million to Obama's favourite charity if the president released his college records and passport information, has been met by a less than favourable response from a few choice celebrities.

In a rare moment of genuine wit, which would probably be better applied to some of his music, Adam Levine of Maroon 5 tweeted: "Will someone tell Donald Trump we don't live in Gotham City?" And it was the micro blogging site that proved to be a breeding ground for comic responses to the frankly bizarre request from Trump; ‘The Office’ star Rainn Wilson posted, "I will pay 5 million dollars to see copies of Donald Trump's humility," while her show’s creator, Ricky Gervais tweeted, "I will give $500 to charity if Donald Trump gives up his hairdresser's passport and college records." Singer Josh Groban tweeted, "For Halloween I'm going to be Donald Trump! Gonna comb over my hair and not give 5 million dollars to charity!"

Perhaps the most important commentator on Mr. Trump is Obama himself, who of course was the subject of the odd YouTube upload. "What's this thing with Trump and you?" Leno asked on The Tonight Show, reports The L.A Times. "This all dates back to when we were growing up together in Kenya," Obama responded. "We had constant run-ins on the soccer field. He wasn't very good and resented it. When we finally moved to America, I thought it would be over." We at Contact Music will give $5 to our chosen charity if Donald Trump ever says anything sensible. And that’s a promise.

First Daughter Review


Zero

Set in an absurd, patronizing fantasy world in which flag-waving citizens line the streets to see the president's kid off to college and angry political protesters share the red-carpet sidelines at black-tie events with shallow reporters asking stupid questions, "First Daughter" could well be the most hackneyed and insipid movie of 2004.

Failing to achieve even the shrug-worth mediocrity of January's similarly plotted "Chasing Liberty" (with Mandy Moore), this gimmick-driven disaster drags star Katie Holmes down with it as Samantha Mackenzie, the sheltered, personality-free offspring of a controversial commander-in-chief (an unconvincing, completely vanilla Michael Keaton), who falls in love with a cute Secret Service agent (an even blander Marc Blucas) posing as a student in her dorm.

Although introduced in the manner of a fairytale, the film's rampant lack of authenticity is simply insurmountable. Samantha's bodyguards constantly hover three feet behind her -- even in class and while she's alone in the dorm's TV room. The girl is never once shown doing anything that even remotely resembles studying, yet as she's egged on by a soundtrack of flutes and twinkling triangles, she proclaims her determination to have a normal coed experience. In pursuit of it, she sneaks out on dates with that charming classmate she doesn't know is an undercover agent -- that is until he blows his secret identity by rescuing her during one of many security breaches so impossibly contrived that the Secret Service should sue 20th Century Fox for defamation of character.
