CBS ANNOUNCES STEPHEN COLBERT AS THE NEXT HOST OF “THE LATE SHOW”

April 10, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

 

 

 

     The CBS Television Network today announced that Stephen Colbert, the host, writer and executive producer of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning “The Colbert Report,” will succeed David Letterman as the host of THE LATE SHOW, effective when Mr. Letterman retires from the broadcast. The five-year agreement between CBS and Colbert was announced by Leslie Moonves, President and CEO, CBS Corporation, and Nina Tassler, Chairman of CBS Entertainment. 

 

     Letterman, the legendary, critically acclaimed host of the CBS late night series for 21 years, announced his retirement on his April 3 broadcast. Colbert’s premiere date as host of THE LATE SHOW will be announced after Mr. Letterman determines a timetable for his final broadcasts in 2015. 

 

     Specific creative elements, as well as the producers and the location for the Colbert-hosted LATE SHOW, will be determined and announced at a later date.

 

     “Stephen Colbert is one of the most inventive and respected forces on television,” said Moonves. “David Letterman’s legacy and accomplishments are an incredible source of pride for all of us here, and today’s announcement speaks to our commitment of upholding what he established for CBS in late night.”

 

     “Stephen is a multi-talented and respected host, writer, producer, satirist and comedian who blazes a trail of thought-provoking conversation, humor and innovation with everything he touches,” said Tassler. ”He is a presence on every stage, with interests and notable accomplishments across a wide spectrum of entertainment, politics, publishing and music. We welcome Stephen to CBS with great pride and excitement, and look forward to introducing him to our network television viewers in late night.”

 

     “Simply being a guest on David Letterman’s show has been a highlight of my career,” said Colbert. “I never dreamed that I would follow in his footsteps, though everyone in late night follows Dave’s lead.”  

 

     Adding, “I’m thrilled and grateful that CBS chose me. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go grind a gap in my front teeth.”   

 

     Since its launch on Comedy Central in 2005, “The Colbert Report” has received widespread critical acclaim while earning two Peabody Awards and 27 Emmy nominations, including an Emmy win for Outstanding Variety Series (2013) and three Emmy wins for Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Program (2013, 2010, 2008). Prior to that, Colbert spent eight years as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” as an on-air personality and writer of news satire for the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning series.

 

     In addition, Colbert is an accomplished author, with two books, I AM AMERICA (and So Can You!) and AMERICA AGAIN: Re-Becoming the Greatness We Never Weren’t, appearing on the New York Times best-seller list. AMERICA AGAIN also won a Grammy Award for Spoken Word (2014).  

 

     In music, Colbert’s original holiday musical special on Comedy Central, “A Colbert Christmas,” won a Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album (2009) and Emmy nominations for Art Direction, Picture Editing and Original Music and Lyrics. In April 2011, Colbert starred as Harry in the New York Philharmonic presentation of Stephen Sondheim’s “Company.”

 

     After graduating from Northwestern University, Colbert was a member of Chicago’s acclaimed Second City improv troupe with Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello. The trio later created and starred in the CableAce-nominated sketch comedy series, “Exit 57,” and created the cult-hit narrative series “Strangers with Candy,” both for Comedy Central.

 

     Colbert has appeared on series such as HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and NBC’s “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.” He was also a cast member and writer on ABC’s “The Dana Carvey Show,” wrote for “Saturday Night Live” and voiced roles in DreamWorks’ animated films “Mr. Peabody and Sherman” and “Monsters vs. Aliens.”

 

     THE LATE SHOW is broadcast weeknights on the CBS Television Network from 11:35 PM – 12:37 AM, ET/PT.

The quartet burned up the charts in 2013 with its album “Night Visions” (which is also a finalist for Top Rock Album) and its many hit singles. Among those is the smash hit “Radioactive,” which broke the record for the most weeks ever on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Lorde broke through in 2013 as well with her inescapable No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 single “Royals” and debut album “Pure Heroine.” The two musical acts go head-to-head in nine categories, including Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Digital Songs Artist, Top Radio Songs Artist, Top Rock Artist, Top Rock Album, Top Hot 100 Song, Top Digital Song, Top Streaming Song (Audio), and Top Rock Song.

Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis follow with 11, 10 and 8 categories respectively. Justin Timberlake could capture his first Billboard Music Award this year as a solo artist. Included in his 11 categories are Top Artist and Top Billboard 200 Album. With the group ‘N Sync, Timberlake earned five Billboard Music Awards, including the 2000 trophy for Album of the Year (“No Strings Attached”). Katy Perry is already a three-time Billboard Music Award winner, with the 2011 Top Hot 100 Artist and the Top Digital Songs Artist, and the 2012 Spotlight Award, honoring her achievement as the first woman to earn five No. 1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart from one album (“Teenage Dream”). Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are also past winners, receiving Top Rap Song at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.

Some other fun finalist facts include:

  • Both Lorde and Robin Thicke, T.I. and Pharrell Williams with their respective Billboard Hot 100 No. 1s “Royals” and “Blurred Lines,” lead the songs race with 5 title categories each.

 

  • Imagine Dragons and Katy Perry both come in second for song categories with 4 for “Radioactive” and “Roar.”

  • Luke Bryan leads all country acts with seven entries in six categories, including an appearance as a finalist in the overall Top Male Artist grouping.

            Billboard Music Awards finalists are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital singles sales, radio airplay, touring, streaming and social interactions on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, VEVO, Spotify and other popular online destinations for music. These measurements are tracked year-round by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Entertainment and Next Big Sound. The awards are based on the reporting period of March 11, 2013 through March 9, 2014.  Since 1940, the Billboard charts have been the go-to guide for ranking the popularity of songs and albums, and are the ultimate measure of a musician’s success.

            As previously announced, the 2014 Milestone Award presented by Chevrolet, will be given to an innovative artist who has achieved a notable chart milestone over the past year. The six finalists for this special editorial award were announced earlier last week on Billboard.com – they are: Imagine Dragons, John Legend, Luke Bryan, OneRepublic, Ellie Goulding and Carrie Underwood. Fans can vote for their favorite Milestone artist online at Billboard.com/milestone and can enter a contest for a chance to win an opportunity to present the award live at this year’s event alongside global music superstar and Billboard Music Award winner Kelly Rowland.

            “I’m really looking forward to presenting the Chevrolet Milestone Award at this year’s Billboard Music Awards. I love being able to recognize fellow artists for their accomplishments and having the opportunity to present with a fan will make the evening that much more exciting!” said Kelly Rowland.

            The six finalists will be narrowed down to three finalists, who will be announced on the website on April 21. Voting will then continue through the first two hours of the live 2014 Billboard Music Awards broadcast, culminating with the announcement of the award winner during the last hour of the show. 

            Chevrolet is a sponsor of the 2014 Billboard Music Awards.

Each week, special celebrity guest stars also will be featured. Confirmed guest stars include Carell, Jason Alexander (“Seinfeld”), D.L. Hughley (“The Original Kings of Comedy”), Cheryl Hines (“Suburgatory”), Tom Green (“Tom Green Live”), Chris Kattan (“Saturday Night Live”), Mayim Bialik (“The Big Bang Theory”), David Arquette (“Pushing Daisies,” “Never Been Kissed”), Oscar Nunez (“The Office”), Andy Dick (“The Andy Dick Show’), Orlando Jones (SLEEPY HOLLOW, “MADtv”), Nicole Sullivan (“Cougar Town”), Michael Ian Black (“Burning Love”), Will Sasso (“The Three Stooges”), Andy Buckley (“The Office”) and Rob Delaney (“Key and Peele”).

Host:

 

Rove McManus started his entertainment career as a stand-up comedian, but went on to become Australia’s most successful talk show host. McManus got his first TV gig on public access television, hosting his own late-night show, “The Loft,” with a budget of $50 a week. He hit the primetime schedule in 2000 with “Rove Live” on Network Ten, after a brief late-night stint on the Nine Network in 1999. “Rove” continued on the Ten Network as a weekly, live talk/comedy show and made McManus Australia’s most popular television personality, until he called it quits in 2009 and re-located to Los Angeles. In 2011 and 2012, McManus hosted two seasons of “Rove LA,” recorded in the U.S. for Australia’s FOX-8 and TV Guide Network (U.S.).

 

 

 

McManus has talked to some of the planet’s biggest names, including Hugh Jackman, John Travolta, Steve Carell, Matt Damon, Will Ferrell, Justin Timberlake and U2. He continues to maintain his stand-up comedy, touring nationally and appearing at the 2010 and 2013 Just For Laughs Festivals in Montreal. McManus has also been a three-time recipient of Australia’s most prestigious television award, the oddly named Gold Logie for Most Popular Personality. McManus is currently based in Los Angeles, where he was a regular on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” presenting his “Rove Across America” segment. Rove and his wife, Tasma Walton, recently welcomed the arrival of their first child, daughter Ruby.

The “Ronna & Beverly” biweekly podcast also can be heard on Earwolf and iTunes. Denbo spent two years performing improv comedy at the Comedy Warehouse at Walt Disney World’s Pleasure Island in Orlando, FL. She then performed and taught at New York City’s Chicago City Limits (both Resident and National Touring Company) for several years. She also performed and taught at the original UCB Theatre in New York City. Her first original one-woman show, “Pixie Chick” (directed by Amy Poehler), was an official selection for the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, CO.

DAVE AND LINDSAY LOHAN “PHONE A FRIEND” WHEN THEY CALL OPRAH WINFREY, ON CBS’s “LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN” TONIGHT

April 9, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

 

 

David Letterman and Lindsay Lohan give a call to their mutual friend Oprah Winfrey when Lohan visits the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, tonight, Wednesday, April 9 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

 

As Letterman and Lohan discuss the cable documentary series “Lindsay,” which follows the actress and is produced for Winfrey’s television network, Lohan, who calls Winfrey her “mentor,” says that they should give the talk show icon a call.

 

“I think maybe I should just call her right now,” the actress suggests, pulling out her cell phone. “Should we call Oprah?” “No, we’re not,” Letterman says. “I think so,” Lohan replies. “Is there a phone? Have you got a phone?” “We’re not calling Oprah,” Letterman responds.

 

After Lohan encourages the audience to chant “Op-rah! Op-rah! Op-rah!,” Letterman finally calls Winfrey using a phony voice. “Yes, could I speak to Oprah Winfrey, please? …Hi, this is Lindsay Lohan’s secretary.” “Who is this?” Winfrey asks, and Letterman, finally using his regular voice, admits, “It’s Dave, Oprah, it’s Dave.” “Oh my God,” Winfrey laughs. “Very good, Dave! The David Letterman who’s retiring?”

 

            As they talk, Letterman asks Winfrey how she thinks Lohan is doing now. “No, I think she’s doing really okay,” Winfrey says. “I think, uh, you know, to have cameras following you around for every phase of your life, and you are trying to pull your life together, I think that’s a really difficult thing, so, yeah, we’re really pleased she’s making some progress,” which makes Lohan choke up. “Oprah, I’ve spent 30 years trying to pull my life together,” Letterman replies. “Where the hell have you been?”

 

Oprah then brings up the fact that Letterman should be doing all right because during her last LATE SHOW visit, they realized they share the same meditation teacher, “Meditation Bob,” who Lohan also visits. Letterman then says, “You know what else, Oprah, that I’ve switched to now, that is really fantastic? Scientology,” leaving Winfrey, Lohan and the entire audience laughing.

 

            Lohan’s entire interview, including the entire phone call with Letterman and Winfrey, can be seen on the LATE SHOW tonight. Additionally, Lohan will be a guest star on the hit CBS comedy series 2 BROKE GIRLS, Monday, April 14 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT).

 

            Also visiting the LATE SHOW tonight are Jamie Edwards, who, at the age of 13, became the youngest person to build a nuclear fusion reactor, and a performance by musical guests Real Estate.

 

The LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN is a production of Worldwide Pants Incorporated. Barbara Gaines, Matt Roberts, Jude Brennan, Maria Pope, Eric Stangel, Justin Stangel and Rob Burnett are the executive producers. Jerry Foley is the director.

 

 

RATING: TV-PG (Rating may change on day of broadcast due to specific subject matter.)
