Conan O’Brien to Host MTV Movie Awards

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Awards, Celeb News, New Releases,

Conan O'BrienConan O'Brien will host the 2014 MTV Movie Awards.

The presenter announced on his TBS talk show Conan last night that he will be hosting the high-profile awards ceremony on April 13 at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. "After eight years of intense negotiations, I am honored to announce I am hosting MTV's second most prestigious awards show," he joked.

The star has plenty of experience hosting televised ceremonies, having previously fronted the Primetime Emmy Awards in both 2002 and 2006.

Jimmy Fallon, Aziz Ansari, Russell Brand and Sarah Silverman have all hosted the MTV Movie Awards in the past, with Rebel Wilson taking charge of last year's ceremony. Conan, who is known for his self-deprecating humor, will be at hand to deliver the coveted golden popcorn statuettes to this year's winners.

The MTV Movie Awards will also feature sneak previews of the summer's most anticipated films with never-before seen footage. Nominations go live tomorrow on MovieAwards.MTV.com.

Jon Cryer: Actually, He is a Troll

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Television, Rants, Rivalries, Videos,

Jon Cryer is addressing Charlie Sheen’s ranting and raving like a true gentleman: by making tons of hilarious jokes about it. After an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres show in which he appeared to be working as her receptionist (poking fun at the fact that he’s now out of work thanks to Sheen), Cryer continued to be funny with Conan O’Brien. Watch him slay it in the video above.

In a tongue-in-cheek response to Charlie Sheen’s unwarranted attack against him, Jon Cryer made a truly startling revelation: he is, in fact, a troll.

And in the terrestrial realm known as TBS, a troll may just have the power to defeat a warlock.

Conan O’Brien pokes fun at Apple’s iPad 2

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Handhelds, Videos,

On Thursday night's show, O'Brien claimed that Apple and its team of engineering wizards was "getting a little cocky". Team Coco then proceeded to spoof the iPad's desktop, thinness, "a pair of cheap cameras," and how we Americans seem to take everything said with an accent and lend it more credence than it actually deserves.

O'Brien, whose humor is perhaps more warm-hearted than his late-night rivals, completely leaves Steve Jobs or a parody of Jobs out of the fake launch video, almost certainly because of Jobs' struggle with cancer. The omission allows the humor to fall where it should: on Apple's iconic status, and how the iPad 2 might be considered a bit more like an iPad 1.5.

VIDEO: Conan O’Brien Apologizes to Jimmy Kimmel for Rudolph Sketch


Fans of both Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Kimmel might have noticed something unusual on their broadcasts recently: similar sketches.

Two weeks ago, Jimmy Kimmel Live was first to air a mashup of Sarah Palin's Alaska with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. (Watch the video after the jump.) That clip was unfortunately followed up two weeks later by a Conan sketch that closely resembed the first.

In response to the snafu, O'Brien issued an apology to the competition -- and made other revelations -- in the message above.

VIDEO: Voldemort Searches for His Nose in Conan Spoof

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Videos,


If you've watched every single installment of the series, you've likely asked this question at one point: "Where's Voldemort's nose?"

In fact, it's a question the villainous character is even asking himself -- or at least he is in this spoof from Conan O'Brien's show.

Watch the clip from Harry Potter: Somebody's Missing a Nose above.

Conan O’Brien, Night Two: Heavy Losses Reported

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Late Night, Talk Shows, Cable, Ratings, Video,

Viewers were excited to tune into Conan O’Brien’s Monday premiere … but they weren’t as pumped on Tuesday. Conan’s cable show lost one-third of its viewers in the transition from Day 1 to Day 2.

Maybe Jon Stewart is to blame? O’Brien’s new late night talk show is competing directly with the cable king, and we don’t like his odds. Monday’s Conan scored 4.2 million viewers, compared to 2.8 million the following night. (His rival Jay Leno averages around 3.6 million for his famous network gig.)

Critics were largely unenthusiastic with the Monday premiere. One writer at the Los Angeles Times complained about O’Brien’s endless NBC jokes, a gag that’s running a little thin nine months after the Tonight Show fallout.

VIDEO: Conan O’Brien Returns to Late Night


If you weren't one of the 4.2 million people watching Conan O'Brien last night (seeing him at 11:00 is still a weird concept), you can catch a highlight from Conan's debut here.

How exactly did O'Brien wind up on basic cable -- and what would he look like as a (real) clown? Check out the video above.

The Daily Show is Number One

Maybe Conan O’Brien shouldn’t get too cozy in his new office at TBS.

The former NBC funnyman will debut his Conan, a new late night series, at 11 pm on Monday … and that means he’s facing the toughest of all late night competition.

According to TVByTheNumbers, The Daily Show is the top-rated late night show among adults age 18 - 49. The numbers are in, and Jon Stewart is officially the king of late night … but during one of the weeks reviewed, The Daily Show, The Tonight Show and Late Show with David Letterman were all showing re-runs.

We have a sneaking suspicion that all Daily Show ratings spikes come just when FOX News hires new staffers.
