Adorable Lout Sean Penn Blows Smoke–Literally– on Stephen Colbert (Watch!)

Sean Penn, the actor turned author, blew smoke on Late Night with Stephen Colbert–literally–last night. He smoked cigarettes during the interview, setting a fine example for young kids everywhere. Oh.. and he was high on Ambien (just a little) to boot. But, hey, he had some encouraging words for the kids from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., who organized the “March for Our Lives” protest in Washington D.C. and hundreds of other cities around the world....

Steve Bannon, Self-Proclaimed ‘Street Fighter,’ Gets Daily Show Shellacking

Steve Bannon took a shellacking on “The Daily Show.” Host Trever Noah deconstructed the hard-right pol’s “60 Minutes” interview and discovered the self-proclaimed “Street Fighter,” is a push-over. To make matters worse, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie delivered a blistering takedown of his own on PBS. Bannon’s been cruisin’ for a bruisin’ ever since he was shit-canned at the White House. ...

Star Trek Discovery Trailer Shows Final Frontier Feminist Friendly (see!)

“Star Trek: Discovery” goes where only one other “Star Trek” series has gone before with a woman in a lead role. A new trailer for the CBS series features Sonequa Martin-Green as battled hardened First Officer Michael Burnham. Ok… she has a man’s name but she’s still a woman. The cast is rounded out by Michelle Yeoh, who plays Captain Philippa Georgiou of the Starship Shenzhou; Jason Isaacs who plays Captain Lorca of Discovery and James Frain as Spock’s father....

Stephen Colbert Monologue Debut: How Do You Rate Him? (video!)

Stephen Colbert kicked off his new “Late Show” gig with a standard late night opening monologue. He certainly had more energy that David Letterman, but will his frenetic, madman style really be enough to set him apart from the crowd? Johnny Carson, and for that matter, his predecessor Jack Paar, set the tone and style for late night interview shows. Their humor was low-key, cool and ironic. ...

Cara Delevingne Is No Morning Person: Watch Her Testy Interview!

Cara Delevigne, the model-socialite turned actress who is known for her late-night partying, is obviously not a morning person. She sat for a number of local morning news show interviews today (July 29), and seemingly lost her cool with the bumbling news anchors. Things got off to a bad, although hilarious, start when one of the news anchors introduced her as “Carla,” She was promoting her new movie "Paper Towns," with Tom Wolff. ...

Bob Simon, Veteran ’60 Minutes’ Reporter, Killed in NYC Car Crash

Bob Simon, the award winning journalist for CBS’s long-running program “60 Minutes,” was killed this evening (Feb. 11) in a car crash in New York City. The driver of his livery cab and the driver of the Mercedes it collided with were not seriously hurt. Simon, 73 was riding in the back of the livery cab, usually a full-size sedan, when the accident occurred. Rescue personnel had to cut the top off the car to extract the correspondent and his driver. He likely was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident....

Justin Bieber Hoses GossipCop, ABC News, TMZ on Private Plane Folly

Justin Bieber farted and a slew of web sites said it smell like roses. That’s an apt analogy for Bieber’s claim that he bought a high-priced Gulfstream G650 private jet for a Christmas present. But like Bieber’s farts, it stinks to high heaven. But that didn’t stop a slew of gossip sites from People magazine to ABC News, Fox News, GossipCop, TMZ and dozen of lesser sites from reporting it as fact. An TheImproper investigation, however, flushed that crap right out of the news cycle. This site reported two days ago that Bieber did not own a jet. We did what every other news site should have done–checked with Federal Aviation Administration....

Taylor Swift Reacts to Boy (Gal) Pal Rumors; Is She, Or Isn’t She Dating?

Taylor Swift has been the subject of some delicious rumors lately. One of the juiciest involved her hooking up with the latest music hunk Matt Healy of the band The 1975. But the other was even juicier. Is she dating supermodel Karlie Kloss? Swift finally addressed all of the dating reports today (Dec. 8). Although the message was short and pointed it seem to answer the two most pressing rumors. “As my 25th birthday present from the media, I’d like for you to stop accusing all my friends of dating me. #thirsty,” she wrote on Twitter....

Rihanna, CBS Feud Turns Ugly: In Vindictive Move, Network Bans Her

Rihanna was pissed that CBS cut her performance from “Thursday Night Football” because of her link to a domestic violence incident and rightly so. But the network took an even more vindictive turn by banning her. Rihanna had taped an introductory performance for the game, but CBS decided at the last minute to cut it, because of the Ray Rice domestic violence incident. The network reportedly thought having Rihanna on the show did not set an “appropriate tone” because she, too, had been involved in an incident of domestic violence. ...

‘D’oh! Rush Limbaugh Thinks Stephen Colbert Character is Real!

Stephen Colbert isn’t really a right-wing-bashing liberal in conservative clothing, although he plays one on his Comedy Central television show. Yet right-wing talking head Rush Limbaugh thinks the fat-head skewering character is real. D’oh! On his radio show today, Limbaugh wailed that CBS’s decision to replace David Letterman, no right wing radical, with Colbert is equivalent to declaring “war on the heartland of America.”...

Justin Bieber, Rihanna Add Pizzazz to Victoria’s Secret Show (photos)

Justin Bieber and Rihanna took the stage with some of the most beautiful women in the world for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on CBS Tuesday (Dec. 4). Angel Alessandra Ambrosio was the featured model this year and opened the show with the brand’s “Million-Dollar Fantasy Bra.” The show was not without controversy. Victoria’s Secret apologized to Native Americans for one of its costumes, modeled after traditional Indian garb, according to the network.
