Full House Nights

If you thought Fuller House was the only spin-off sequel series to the cheesy ’90s sitcom Full House we were going to get, you thought wrong. Hot on the heels of a second season order for Fuller House, yet another spin-off series has been revealed.

Full House Nights follows Danny Tanner (Bob Saget), Jesse Katsopolis (John Stamos), and Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier) after they put the girls to bed in the original series. Because that’s when they turn into night time detectives of San Francisco. And if that sounds like something you just can’t wait to see, then you can check out a clip below. Read More »

Spike Jonze Short Film with Stephen Colbert

Unfortunately, we have no idea when/if we’ll get another feature film from Spike Jonze, the director who brought us Her, Where the Wild Things Are, Adaptation and Being John Malkovich. That’s definitely a bummer, but to hold us over, Spike Jonze brought his filmmaking talents to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert by shooting a sweet short film to open the show instead of the usual lively title sequence. There’s even a familiar friendly face that makes an appearance to make it even more wonderful. Read More »

Stephen Colbert Explains Star Wars

In case you didn’t know, Chinese audiences aren’t really familiar with Star Wars. As The Wall Street Journal explains:

“’Star Wars’ phenomenon predates China’s modern movie market. When Luke Skywalker first appeared on U.S. movie screens in 1977, China had just emerged from the Cultural Revolution—which had suppressed art as entertainment. The film’s 1999, 2002 and 2005 prequels grossed a total of $18.7 million in a time when only a small number of Chinese went to the movies.”

That’s why Disney has been making a big marketing push to the most populous country on the planet. And for those in China who have been seduced by the marketing of Star Wars: The Force Awakens but don’t have time to see all the movies before it premieres there on January 9th, Stephen Colbert has them covered by explaining the plot of Star Wars in just one minute.

star wars marketing integration with Stephen Colbert

Stephen Colbert has a long history with Star Wars. He’s defended that crossguard lightsaber, called out Star Wars creator George Lucas, and even attempted to guess the entire plot of Star Wars: The Force Awakens based on just the images in the trailer. While its clear Colbert is a Star Wars fan, he wasn’t afraid to take on the evil empire last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. In a segment on last night’s show, Colbert blasted the brand’s past and present pieces of ridiculous marketing integration, or more specifically Cover Girl’s new line of Star Wars collection makeup.

“The forced marketing integration is strong with this one,” remarked Colbert, who went on to mock the product: “They were previously available in containers that didn’t say Star Wars!”

The Force Awakens plot

It’s been over a week since the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer debuted, and fans are still watching it on repeat, dissecting every single frame for clues, and trying to understand why the Jedi have become myth in the Star Wars universe. And that includes late night personality Stephen Colbert.

As the The Late Show host, who didn’t have new episodes last week, said on his show last night, “This was not a 10-second slow fade teaser. None of that BS. This was a real trailer with actual chunks of movie flavor crystals in it. And I was deeply moved.” In fact, Colbert was so affected by the trailer that he took a couple minutes out of his show to guess the entire Star Wars: The Force Awakens plot. Read More »

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert first guests will also include Marvel Studios star Scarlett Johansson, comedian and Trainwreck star Amy Schumer, and a few other interesting guests for the late night circuit that really give us an idea of what we can expect from this new iteration of the show.

Stephen Colbert guests

CBS closed its day of Television Critics Association panels with Stephen Colbert discussing taking over as host of The Late Show. As soon as he was hired, Colbert stated he would retire the “Stephen Colbert” character of The Colbert Report. Today we got an example of what the real Stephen Colbert will be like, and the biggest difference might be when he’s interviewing guests. Read More »

Stephen Colbert trailer

Stephen Colbert provided one of the most affecting speeches on the final episode of Jon Stewart’s run on The Daily Show, and now it’s time to turn the spotlight back to Colbert as he preps for the September premiere of his version of David Letterman’s former talk show, The Late Show.

CBS is going big for this promo, putting a Late Show trailer into movie theaters, complete with 3D effects and a giant CG dragon. Well… actually… there were supposed to be 3D effects and a dragon, but the big-screen presentation doesn’t necessarily mean there’s an appropriately-sized budget for the promo. Watch the Stephen Colbert trailer below, and you’ll see what we mean. Read More »

Stephen Colbert interview Eminem

We’re in the heart of summer, and while blockbuster season is keeping us occupied for the time being (not to mention Comic-Con next week), a part of me looks forward to the fall when new TV shows start to hit the air. One of those shows will be The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and a new taste of what we can expect from David Letterman’s replacement has just surfaced.

We’ve already seen a hilarious teaser for The Late Show, where Colbert shaved the famous “Colbeard,” but now he’s done some serious prepping for the show by taking over the public access show Only in Monroe, straight from Monroe, Michigan. And who better for Colbert to interview than Michigan native and rapping sensation Eminem. Oh, and the interview goes on for 20 minutes. It’s just as awesome as you’d expect it to be.

Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Just last month, David Letterman bid farewell to The Late Show on CBS, a program he helped make a comedic institution. And this fall, former Comedy Central political satirist Stephen Colbert will get behind the desk on the late night talk show.

Since leaving behind The Colbert Report, the comedian has been rather busy elsewhere, and he even grew a magnificent beard, biding his time until he invades the late night circuit. But now the hype machine for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert has officially begun with the first teaser arriving today. And if you’ve come to enjoy the host’s facial hair that lovingly became known as “The Colbeard,” you might want to sit down before watching this video.
