Never missing a beat, Stephen Colbert joked on Thursday’s “The Colbert Report” about news he is replacing David Letterman.
As his Comedy Central persona, the political funnyman began his show on Thursday paying tribute to Dave.
He said, “One thing, before we get started. There was some big news last week that slipped through my news crack. It concerned someone I’ve admired for years, and yet, surprisingly, is not me.”
“Extra” caught up with Jay Leno after his comedy show in New Jersey. Jay, who left “The Tonight Show” in February, commented for the first time on news that David Letterman will retire in 2015.
“Extra’s” AJ Calloway caught up with Billy Crystal today, who expressed his feelings about David Letterman’s retirement.
Crystal explained, “As I pulled up to the theater, I heard the news, so now I was stunned, and 20 minutes later I’m on the stage with him. We had a ball. It was really fun, and I’m really happy for him… bittersweet feelings.”
“Extra’s” AJ Calloway was with Howard Stern on the red carpet for “America’s Got Talent,” reacting to the news that David Letterman is retiring.
Would-be news anchor A.J. Clemente, who was fired for dropping the f-bomb on-air on his first day of work, landed on David Letterman’s Top 10 list this week… and did a guest spot on the show!
Clemente told the late-night host, "I went home, crawled in bed and called my parents. But the next day, you gotta pick yourself up, you gotta laugh at yourself and keep going."
David Letterman didn’t hold back today as he interviewed Lindsay Lohan on the “Late Show," grilling her about all her rehab and addiction issues.
Lohan deftly dodged most of the questions, but did admit, “I’m the happiest when I’m working and the healthiest, and I think [rehab] is an opportunity for me to, you know, focus on what I love in life. And I don’t think it’s a bad thing. I think it’s a blessing and not a curse.”
When Letterman asked, “Do you have addiction problems?” She replied, “Now you sound like Dr. Phil.” Watch the interview above!
