Watch David Letterman and Jerry Seinfeld Fight Over Regis Philbin

Matt Cherette · 11/17/11 02:52AM

Jerry Seinfeld is set to temporarily take over as co-host of Live! after Regis Philbin's final show on Friday. Hey, when did Seinfeld and Philbin get so close, anyway? And why is Philbin on the cover of Newsweek with him instead of with longtime friend David Letterman? That's what a jealous Letterman wanted to know when he asked Seinfeld about his relationship with Reeg on tonight's Late Show.

Bill Maher: Elisabeth Hasselbeck 'Had Some Bug Up Her Ass'

Matt Cherette · 11/16/11 01:56AM

Elisabeth Hasselbeck had quite a bone to pick with Bill Maher on The View this morning about a joke he'd told about her months ago, and pick it she did. One would think he'd mind being attacked, but on tonight's Late Show, Maher told David Letterman he was actually pleased with how she reacted: "Thank you, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, for making me look good!"

Salma Hayek Describes Her Life as a Billionaire's Wife

Matt Cherette · 10/25/11 01:25AM

Salma Hayek has kept a relatively low profile since having a child with (and eventually marrying) French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault, so she had lots to discuss with David Letterman when she stopped by tonight's Late Show to promote her new film. Here are highlights of their lively chat, including her struggle to quit smoking, her four-year-old daughter's adult-like attitude, and Letterman's obsession with Hayek's earrings.

Watch David Letterman Quiz George Clooney About Vera Farmiga's Butt

Matt Cherette · 10/06/11 02:37AM

George Clooney returned to the Late Show tonight after a three-and-a-half year absence, so naturally there were many things David Letterman wished to discuss with him. Chief among them: Vera Farmiga's backside, which apparently has been on Letterman's mind since seeing Clooney and Farmiga appear together in Up in the Air a couple of years ago.

Sean Young Begs for Work in Bizarre Late Show Appearance

Matt Cherette · 10/05/11 01:03AM

Well, this was uncomfortable. On tonight's Late Show, David Letterman interviewed '80s movie star-turned-alcoholic flameout Sean Young. The chat was bizarre from the onset—Young described disciplining her teenage sons with a horsewhip—and then turned downright sad as Young pleaded for work with anyone who'd consider hiring her. The saddest part? The video clip that Young shared of her dressed up in a Catwoman suit, screaming "I'm not crazy!" to random passers-by.

Watch David Letterman and Anderson Cooper Banter Like Boyfriends

Matt Cherette · 09/29/11 12:46AM

Anderson Cooper probably woke up this morning thinking he'd only be on two television shows by the end of the day. But then the opportunity came along to appear on a third program—and promote his new daytime talk show in the process—and he couldn't resist.

David Letterman's Endless Supply of Chris Christie Fat Jokes

Matt Cherette · 09/28/11 02:30AM

In addition to being a possible Republican presidential candidate, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is really fat. So naturally, in recent days Christie's been the butt of jokes made by everyone from Chris Matthews to David Letterman, who on tonight's Late Show delivered a top 10 list of "ways the country would be different if Chris Christie were president." Here's a clip of the segment.

Watch David Letterman and Sofia Vergara Attempt to Communicate

Matt Cherette · 09/23/11 02:57AM

Modern Family star Sofia Vergara stopped by the Late Show on Thursday to gloat to David Letterman about her show's big night at the Emmys. And while I suspect any conversation between Letterman and Vergara would be entertaining, this one was made even better by the fact that they kept confusing each other throughout it.

Late Show Features Three Reasons Not to Watch Two and a Half Men

Matt Cherette · 09/09/11 03:50AM

The cast of Two and a Half Men appeared on tonight's Late Show to present David Letterman's Top 10 list of reasons to still tune in. But as you'll see in this video, Ashton Kutcher sort of seems over it already, so... points at least for being self-aware?

David Letterman Would Rather Face Jihad Than Interview the Kardashians

Matt Cherette · 09/07/11 01:26AM

Silly you, thinking yesterday's Keeping Up with the Kardashians season finale marked the beginning of a reprieve from America's most undeservedly famous family. Because tonight, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe took the Late Show by storm for an interview with David Letterman. They were annoying, obviously, but you know what was kind of fun? Watching Letterman conduct the interview like he was talking to three surprisingly articulate toddlers with gigantic breasts. Here's our highlight reel.

David Arquette Giggles About Rob Kardashian's 'Great Ass' to David Letterman

Matt Cherette · 08/31/11 11:55PM

Newly minted Dancing with the Stars contestant David Arquette was on tonight's Late Show. Arquette talked to David Letterman about being sober from alcohol, reconciling with estranged wife Courteney Cox, being enamored with fellow DWTS contestant Rob Kardashian's "great ass" (it's true, his ass is pretty spectacular), being scared of Nancy Grace, and more. But mostly, he just giggled. A lot! Check out our video of the interview's best four minutes above.

David Letterman Celebrates Regis Philbin's 80th Birthday

Matt Cherette · 08/26/11 01:57AM

The last time Regis Philbin had anything to do with a David Letterman Top 10 list, he was ruining it. But not this time. On tonight's Late Show, Letterman used the segment to wish Philbin a happy 80th—and to speculate as to how the octogenarian spent his big day. Video of Letterman's tribute is above.

David Letterman Grills Ashton Kutcher About Two and a Half Men

Matt Cherette · 08/25/11 12:18AM

Ashton Kutcher stepped out of his insanely oversized trailer on the Two and a Half Men set tonight for long enough to visit the Late Show. And while most of us aren't the least bit interested in knowing about Kutcher's Charlie Sheen-replacing character—or the details of Sheen's on-screen death—David Letterman nonetheless seemed quite intent on getting him to cough up some details. Video of the interrogation is above.
