Stephen Colbert Addresses Donald Trump Endorsement Of “Creme-De-La Creep” Roy Moore

Today, Donald Trump made a veiled endorsement of Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused of sexual misconduct with teenagers. Of course, Stephen Colbert had some things to say about it on The Late Show. “With all the recent sexual abuse allegations, the 'Creme-De-La Creep' is Alabama senator candidate and founder of 'Take a Daughter From School Day' Roy Moore,” said Colbert. He then played footage of Trump’s presser earlier today when he said…

Stephen Colbert, Fellow Late-Night Hosts Address Louis C.K. Sexual Misconduct Allegations — Watch
“For those of you tuning in to see my interview with Louis C.K. tonight, I have some bad news,” Stephen Colbert said towards the top of Thursday’s monologue. “Then I have some really bad news.”

C.K., who was set to appear on CBS’ The Late Show, cancelled at the last minute after he was accused of sexual misconduct by five women, several of whom alleged that the comedian masturbated in front of them without their consent. Colbert, who worked with C.K. on the short-lived 1996 sketch-comedy series The Dana Carvey Show, addressed the allegations head-on in a monologue

The Florida Georgia Line Effect: Mentoring New Artists and Setting Sights on Pop Stardom (Certified Country)

The Florida Georgia Line Effect: Mentoring New Artists and Setting Sights on Pop Stardom (Certified Country)
Five years, three albums and 13 No. 1 singles after making their major label debut, Here's to the Good Times, Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard humbly, reluctantly attempts to answer a loaded question: "Do you feel like you've made it?" 

"Ah..." he trails off initially, with bandmate Brian Kelley jumping in to attempt a deflection. "We made it to these awards!" he says, referencing the Cmt Artists of the Year event, where they have been honored alongside country royalty every year for the last five years. "We made it here!" 

"It's hard not to think we've made it when you look out every night and see 30,000 people singing your songs," Hubbard allows. 

"At the same time," he continues, "we're big dreamers and we kind of say, 'The sky's the limit, so let's see where this thing is going to go,' and we kind of continue that motto and see where it leads us."

Watch Stephen Colbert's Defense of 'Innocent' Clowns
Stephen Colbert prefaced a segment on The Late Show on Wednesday night with a warning: "Parents may want to send kids out of the room," he said somberly. "And then leave the room yourself." Colbert addressed the alleged creepy clown-sightings reported in South Carolina, Alabama, Maryland, Georgia and New Jersey by defending the hard-working clown community.

"All the coverage of these hoaxes has lead to copycat creepy clowns," Colbert noted. "The professional clowns worry that they'll become targets of vigilantes." His segment culminates with a "Save the Clowns" PSA with actual clowns.

Best of Late Night TV: Fallon Sings With Billy Joel and J.K. Simmons, Amy Landecker's Humiliating Don Cheadle Story

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Billy Joel was on "The Tonight Show" and, of course, The Piano Man sat at the piano to sing us a song. Jimmy Fallon jumped right in and they sang the Rolling Stones's "Beast of Burden" together. Fallon's Mick Jagger impression is still on point. Of course, Jimmy wouldn't be Jimmy if he didn't ham it up, and he went Full Jagger and got the audience to join in.

However, topping that is this impromptu performance of "The Longest Time" from Billy, Jimmy, Billy's band, and actor J.K. Simmons -- this was just during a commercial break as they shot some local promos:

Speaking of J.K. Simmons, the multi-talented

A history of stoners in film

Ahead of American Ultra’s release in UK cinemas, we look at the rise of the stoner in film, from the 30s to the present...

"The motion picture you are about to witness may startle you. It would not have been possible, otherwise, to sufficiently emphasize the frightful toll of the new drug menace which is destroying the youth of America in alarmingly increasing numbers. Marihuana is that drug - a violent narcotic - an unspeakable scourge - the Real Public Enemy Number One!

So reads the opening crawl to the now infamous film Reefer Madness. Originally released in 1936, it was designed as a hard-hitting expose of marijuana and its inherent dangers. The drug could cause "violent, uncontrollable laughter," the movie's introduction read. It could induce "dangerous hallucinations," "monstrous extravagances," all eventually leading to "shocking acts of physical violence... ending often in incurable insanity."

Reefer Madness was one of many

Best of Late Night TV: Blake Lively's Embarrassing Harrison Ford Story, Paul Rudd Dips Fan Club Sponge (Video)

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

"The Age of Adaline" star Blake Lively was on "The Tonight Show" Tuesday night, and she talked about fangirling (badly) all over co-star Harrison Ford. She was excited to be around Indiana Jones -- although she had only watched those movies the day before they started shooting "Adaline." Jimmy Fallon brought up that Harrison is also Han Solo. Blake admitted that she still hasn't seen "Star Wars." Blake: "I saw the one with Natalie Portman and Hayden Christensen. Does that count?" Noooooooooooooooooooo. She just knew him as the dude with the earring who was married to Calista Flockhart, which she thought was awesome. Then she watched all three Indiana

The 15 Most Memorable Moments From the 2015 Oscars

"Stay weird. Stay different." That was the advice of Best Adapted Screenplay winner Graham Moore ("The Imitation Game") to kids out there who might one day follow in his footsteps, but it also could have been the motto for the 87th annual Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday night. The weirdness of the Neil Patrick Harris-hosted Oscars wasn't in the results -- for the record, I went 18 for 24 in my predictions, which is more a testimony to how closely the voting followed conventional wisdom than it is to my crystal-ball skills -- but in the presentation. The show was full of Wtf? moments, some wonderful, some cringeworthy, some merely bizarre, and all of them memorable. Here are some of the weird and different Oscar moments that viewers won't soon forget.

Twenty years of Later... with Jools Holland

Launched in 1992, the BBC's flagship music show is still going strong after 284 episodes. On the eve of series 41, we trawl through its rich archives and ask the presenter, the programme makers and veteran guests what makes Later Britain's greatest live music show ever

A few episodes into the new series of Later… with Jools Holland, which starts on BBC2 next week, the music programme will celebrate its 20th year of broadcast. A slighter anniversary will have passed unnoticed – the casual inquiry that started it all, one producer to another at Television Centre: "What's Jools up to at the minute?"

Holland was then a touring musician and band leader who'd done presenting work for Channel 4 in the 80s, and later a stint on American television. The BBC producers hoped he might front a new show they were planning. Something modest, late night, to go in among the weather bulletins and

The Six Rising Acts We're Most Excited About In 2012

By Zachary Swickey

It's hard to believe that nearly half the year is already over. With April having come and gone, we've already endured our first big fest of the season - Coachella, of course - and thankfully this year's Grammys helped make the beloved Bon Iver a household name. Best of all, Adele is on track to receive the first diamond record (10x platinum) since Usher's '04 effort Confessions.

So, basically it's safe to say that 2012 is already a hell of a year in music, and we've spotted some amazing new acts on the rise this year that are sure to only make it better. You may already recognize some of the names (who hasn't heard of Kimbra at this point?), but we hope you get well acquainted with all of them.

Here are six of our favorite acts on the rise. Who are some of yours?

As they happened

Didn't get an invite to this year's Oscars? Neither did Xan Brooks, but he stoically blogged the red carpet and then the ceremony anyway

10.57pm: And so it begins ....

11.25pm: Roll carpet, roll cameras: it's the 84th annual Academy Awards, live and lurid from Hollywood. The Guardian film team will be covering the event throughout the night, weeping with the winners and wailing with the losers as this season's awards circus clatters exhaustedly towards the finish line. This is where it ends, inside the Hollywood and Highland Centre (reputedly the winner of the 2007 "Ugliest Building in La" award). Inside, the victors shall be encased in gold, the vanquished shown the door and all manner of movies laid tenderly to rest.

But wait, kick back, and keep the war horses tethered: the actual ceremony does not officially commence until 5pm (Pacific time). Time enough to cast an eye back over some late-breaking Oscar news.

Television looks pretty sparse tonight but there's a few gems in there. The "So You Think You Can Dance" crowd gets to worship at the feet of Cat Deeley again, and "Ancient Aliens" returns for people who appreciate crazy in its most well reasoned and researched forms. Seriously, everything they say makes perfect sense if you accept the basic premise of the show which is that aliens are responsible for all the parts of human history we can't really explain. Obviously. Oh! And "Project Runway" returns with it's duel guiding stars of Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn, who I really wish I could just hire for hilarious and wine soaked dinner parties. I'd start throwing dinner parties if that were an option. Here's your Thursday night TV:

I've spent most of my day in the presence of 10-13 year olds, outside, so my wit is a bit strained at this point since I can't ask the children "Are you shitting me with this? Seriously?" after I've told them to stop hitting each other nine times in a row and see one of them leaning over to hit another one. I remember once telling my younger sister that should couldn't just move into my apartment with me and start college early because 1. she hadn't finished high school yet and 2. high school is where we keep teenagers until they turn back into humans. I should probably extend that to say that middle school is where we keep changelings until they better figure out how to act like teenagers. Here's your Thursday night TV:

We've got two Cmt shows premiering tonight, both of which seem to be rather blatant knock offs of other reality series which just leaves me further convinced that there are too many television channels and yet there seems to be no end to the creation of new ones. Which leads me to wonder; what would your ideal television channel be? And doesn't the internet sort of already fill that purpose? If you like Animal Planet you'll love YouTube, featuring as many videos of cute animals as you can stand and all catered to your particular desires. Love those "Stupidest Videos Part 74638" shows? Same deal. Those of you without my hang-ups about watching non-legally licensed material have even more options at your disposal. But we are talking about television so if you Could program a TV channel for a day, what would you pick? While you're thinking about that, here's your
