Late Night Star Conan O’Brien Says His Least Favorite Guest Was Al Roker

Hilarious late night talk show host Conan O’Brien recently made an appearance on Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live” show. While being interviewed by Cohen, O’Brien revealed his least favorite celebrity to interview: NBC’s Al Roker.


Conan admitted his dislike of Roker during a game segment entitled “Plead the Fifth.” During this game, Conan was asked three questions and could only refuse to answer one of them.


When asked which celebrity Conan most disliked interviewing in his long career as a talk show host, he instantly paused and thought for a moment. After a few seconds, O’Brien admitted that Al Roker was just “too fake” and that he didn’t enjoy interviewing him. Conan went on to say that Roker is “too happy all the time.”


Conan also complained that it was hard to actually talk to Roker on his TV program. “I kept trying to crack him,” Conan said, “and he wouldn’t do it!”


The star TBS’ late night show Conan said that Roker was a huge backstage diva. Indeed, Conan called Roker an “absolute monster” behind the scenes. Apparently, Conan and Roker haven’t talked since their last interview years ago.


O’Brien then turned the question around and asked Andy Cohen for his worst guest. Cohen said he most disliked interviewing Mariah Carey.


The first question Cohen asked O’Brien was whether he would shag, marry, or kill three popular TV hosts: Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and James Corden. Conan decided to kill Kimmel, shag Corden, and marry Fallon.


The last question O’Brien was asked was what he would say to Jay Leno if he ever sat next to him on a flight. O’Brien said he would probably just be watching an in-flight movie like “The Goonies” and totally disregard Leno.


O’Brien didn’t choose to “plead the fifth” on any of these questions.


Are We Going To Mars?

We have been to the moon, thanks to NASA, but never to Mars. Going to Mars is something that humanity has envisioned ever since it set foot on the moon. However, decades ago we lacked the means and the power to facilitate safe passage to Mars, one of the many planets in our solar system. With the recent technological advancements, plans are underway to have some of us travel to Mars. Due to President Trump’s directive for NASA to take people to Mars by 2033, the space agency has been on its toes to come up with a detailed plan for the expedition. According to NASA, their plan will encompass five phases. Although the project is expected to experience severe challenges, the space agency is determined to bring President Trump’s directive to fruition. Currently, there are ongoing tests to determine how best NASA can take people to Mars. Besides, launching and testing of rockets is expected to be held in the coming year so as to deliver vital components to the Deep Space Gateway. NASA’s move has come as a challenge to other companies that deal with space exploration. Whereas NASA projects to safely take us to the moon by 2033, other corporations guarantee an early Mars arrival, presumably by the year 2022. Thus, such a scenario will force NASA to work around the clock, because any challenge will deter it from its initial course. If it so happens that we arrive on Mars by 2033, we will have done what previous generations failed to do.


Will Late Night Television Show Hosts Be Speechless?

Many people like to believe their favorite late night television show host is incredibly talented and funny. This belief is often justified. However, people shouldn’t forget that late night television show hosts stand upon the shoulders of giants. Behind the scenes, writers work tirelessly to craft jokes for late night television show hosts to use. In fact, without all of these writers, many late night television show hosts would be about as entertaining and funny as your typical class clown. Late night television show hosts know this, and they are getting nervous.


Why are the hosts getting nervous? It is because of an upcoming contract deadline. The Writer’s Guild of America protects all of the professional writers in Hollywood. This includes the writers for late night television shows. If the contract isn’t renewed, the writers will go on strike. This hasn’t happened for almost a decade! If a strike occurs, the late night television show hosts will have nothing to stay. Rather than attempting the stage without the help of professional writers, late night television shows will air repeats. This should give many late night television show fans pause regarding exactly how talented many of their favorite hosts are.


Thankfully, many experts think it won’t come to this. May would be a bad time for a strike from professional writers. A lot of big television events are scheduled for May, and writers will be needed to help make them happen. Let’s hope our favorite late night hosts won’t be speechless!


Two Late Night Television Show You Should Check Out

Most late night television show fans probably think they have seen it all. However, did you know there are more late night television shows out there than the ones advertised by the big networks? It’s true! If you looking for something more than the standard late night television show fare, one newspaper recently highlighted two shows for people to check out.


Desus & Mero showcases a pair of Bronx comedians. You can check out this late night television show on Viceland. This duo is able to riff off of the popular headlines of the day. To match the duo’s street cred, the desk on the show isn’t squeaky clean. Instead, it is covered in graffiti. The show was recently described as “loose, cheerful, and profane.” Jessie Williams and Chris Hayes have both made recent appearances on the show.


If you want to watch a late night television show where the stakes are low and celebrities lay back a bit, you should change the channel to Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. This late night television show is aired on Bravo, and you can catch it Sundays through Thursdays. Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lawrence have made appearances on the show. Thanks to an open bar policy on the set, the guests are often a bit tipsy and willing to talk loosely about their lives. The show can be a refreshing change from the sometimes overly scripted interviews of traditional late night television.

The closest we have to state TV

The comic, including Seth Meyer, and Samantha Lee, were discussing President Donald Trump’s close with the network and his daughter in White House. They also took close at the relationship between Trump and Bill O’Reilly to talk about the role of his daughter Ivanka in the White House. Stephen Colbert, on the last show, talked about how the president stuck his finger into O’Reilly’s situation in the media. As a matter of fact, the media is aware that Trump dislikes Bill. For this reason, he will answer these questions with stakes. According to the recent statistics, the network settled to the tune of not less than $13 million.


When Trump was asked about Bill, he claimed that he was not guilty of the alleged charges. On the other hand, Colbert was so ironical when he enquired about the $13 million found with Bill. He also added that that amount could be just a tip of the iceberg about more money channeled into the media to portray a good image of the worst political rule. Trump also declared April as the month of Sexual Awareness. According to this statement, the bill has been charged with more than two incidences of sexual assault.


To be fair, Trump was not elected by the American people the electorate only elected him. For this reason, he will not own all the allegations subjected to him. Samantha also questions the role of Ivanka in the White House. She also claims that she might be there to act as her father’s eyes and ears.

Late Night TV Host Holds Her Own White House Correspondents’ Dinner

One of the funniest and smartest faces of late night television had a lot to say about the conspicuous absence of President Donald Trump at the first White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Samantha Bee, star of the late night hit show Full Frontal, decided to hold “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner,” a very funny skit that featured celebrities and plenty of sarcastic humor pointed directly at Trump.


Samantha Bee’s decision to hold a comedic version of the event was prompted not just because of the President’s absence but also from the fact that the actual White House Correspondents’ Dinner took on a demure tone this year.


During the Obama administration, the President was not only roasted but also invited to laugh and even participate with a few jokes. Since former President Obama was very popular, the Correspondents’ Dinner became a glitzy affair that attracted many A-list celebrities from the showbiz industry.


This year, comedian Hasan Minhaj was in charge of roasting Trump, but the roasting was minimal since the focus is to have the President there and in person to catch and absorb the jokes. Instead, the organizing committee invited legendary journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein to present awards.


Samantha Bee’s counter show was a comedic success with very strong roasting of President Trump, who would have likely not been very comfortable with. The journalism industry in general was also heavily roasted by Samantha Bee and her fellow comedians, but proceeds from the event went to the Committee to Protect Journalists.


Late Night Television Show Hosts Blast Ivanka Trump

Famous people often hope to be mentioned on a late night television show to increase exposure. That is exactly what members of the Trump family used to wish for. However, now that the Trump family is leading the most powerful country in the world, Trump family members are not always mentioned positively. This is exactly what happened to Ivanka Trump recently. After being jeered at a conference in Germany, the late night television world has been merciless.


It started when Ivanka Trump spoke at a German conference on women’s issues. She told the crowd that her father was a “tremendous champion of supporting families.” Naturally, the crowd didn’t seem to believe Ivanka’s claim, and they let her know through a series of boos and jeers. Later, late night television show hosts quipped all about it. Stephen Colbert joked that it was the first time a Trump family member participated in a women’s conference that didn’t involve swimsuits. Conan O’Brien told his audience that Ivanka Trump was surprised she got booed after being told she should open up her remarks with a joke. Another joke reminded audience members that the Trump family has a long history of inspiring women. However, that inspiration involved inspiring women to march, to sue, and to flee from a dressing room.


This wasn’t the first time the Trump family has been openly mocked on late night television. With over three and a half years until Trump’s presidency can be challenged, it certainly won’t be the last either!



Gorillaz Set to Perform on The Graham Norton Show

“The Graham Norton Show” has long been a staple of British late night entertainment and one known for being zany and amazing; the impending May 5th show is no different. Four Hollywood stars and one well-known group of musicians are planned to make an appearance on the program.seems

  • Diane Keaton will make an appearance in order to promote her upcoming film, “Hampstead.” Said film combines romance with a desire to preserve nature.
  • Michael Fassbender will also appear in order to discuss his involvement with “Alien: Covenant,” the sequel to the sci-fi film “Prometheus.” Alien: Covenant involves the exploits of several couples as they arrive upon and explore a lush Earth-like planet that seems absent of other life forms.
  • “Interstellar’s” Jessica Chastain will work the press circuit about her role in “Miss Sloane,” a film about a high-profile lobbyist within Washington, D.C.
  • Lastly, Kevin Bacon will explain his newest endeavor, the Amazon Prime-exclusive program known as “I Love Dick.”


In addition to the various stars of the large and small screen, the program will also feature a musical guest promoting their newest single. The May 5th show will bring the sound of Gorillaz to the audience as they perform “We Got the Power.” Culturally alert readers may raise an eyebrow at the mention of a live Gorillaz performance; while the band is known for its animated music videos and characters, the Graham Norton Show performance will feature the flesh-and-blood people behind the animated characters.


Pixies Perform “Bel Esprit” on CONAN

Legendary alt-rock band The Pixies showed off their new single, “Bel Esprit,” on Conan Thursday night, April 27, 2017.


“Bel Esprit” is a verbal pas de deux between Pixies frontman Black Francis and the group’s bassist, Paz Lenchantin. Lenchantin stepped in to replace Kim Shattuck, whose brief tenure as a Pixie spanned June-November 2013. Shattuck had been hastily brought in to fill in for original Pixies bassist Kim Deal.


The Pixies have released two studio albums since the group re-formed in 2004. A previous album, 2014’s “Indie Cindy,” was almost universally panned by fans and critics. The group released their album “Head Carrier” on September 30, 2016.


“This was feeling very much like our comeback record as opposed to ‘Indie Cindy,’ which felt like a transitional moment even when we were making it,” Francis said to a reporter for Rolling Stone. Music critics, including NPR’s Jason Heller, agree.


Originally formed in Boston in 1986, the original Pixies lineup of Francis, Deal, Joey Santiago, and David Lovering played together off and on through 1993. That year, Kim Deal reached some of her greatest commercial success not as a Pixie, but as the lead singer/guitarist of The Breeders with her twin sister Kelley Deal. The Breeders’ album “Last Splash” reached platinum status thanks in part to lead-off single “Cannonball.”


Although never very commercially successful, the Pixies have been greatly influential on other hard rock, pop-rock, and indie-rock groups through the 1990s and beyond. One pop culture claim to fame is the appearance of the Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind?” on the soundtrack to the 1999 film “Fight Club,” played over the movie’s ending credits.


Jimmy Fallon Gets Bear Hugs When Australia Zoo’s Robert Irwin Drops By

There’s something special and endearing when wildlife finds its way on to a late night talk show. This time, it was The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and it was a show that folks are still buzzing about and one that continues to be replayed on social media.


The son of the late Steve Irwin, The Crocodile Hunter, is a smart and friendly 13-year-old teen now. Robert Irwin not only strongly resembles his late father but has also inherited his unique gift of working with and respecting wildlife.


The handsome, blonde-haired teen is a favorite guest on Fallon’s popular talk show because he’s sharp, funny and handles all the zoo animals that he brings as guests on to the program.


Irwin first introduced Fallon to a creepy crawler named Jane that evening. She was a large, hairy scorpion that the talk show host refused to even slightly touch or allow to roam across the famous tonight show desk.


The next pair of guests were a lot cuter, and Irwin and Fallon sat on the rug in front of the desk to meet beautiful baby black bears, Flo and D-9. Adorable at two-months-old, one of them tried chewing on Fallon’s fingers; it was naughty Flo.


After the sweet baby bears were done visiting, slithering legless lizards named Fluffy and Lulu made their striking appearance. Fallon was a good sport and even held one as the audience howled with laughter.


Then Orville made his entrance with his super long tail. He’s a Binturong that smells like burnt popcorn and enjoys eating grapes. Fallon got down on his hands and knees to “meet” Orville and allow the furry animal to smell his hair to pick up Fallon’s scent.


The final guest was Beatrice, a green toucan.
