The Ed Sullivan Theater, David Letterman, and the Late Show have all been ingrained in the fabric of New York City, but the relationship came into question when it was announced that Letterman was retiring and Stephen Colbert was taking over.

Never to worry, though. New York through a bunch of cash at CBS and the show is staying where it is. The report is $16 million, as the headline states, but it’s actually a $5 million grant to improve the theater, some tax breaks, and a bunch of other convoluted mechanisms. That’s too bad, because I would have really liked to see Governor Andrew Cuomo hand Colbert a trash bag full of cash as they both smiled for the cameras.

In any event, LA won’t be getting Colbert or his show. Oh well, WE STILL HAVE THE BECKHAMS AND NIC CAGE.

‘The Walking Dead’ Invades New York City http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/the-walking-dead-invades-new-york-city/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/the-walking-dead-invades-new-york-city/#comments Thu, 06 Feb 2014 21:26:53 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=259171 Ahhhh, zombies are real!

If there were a zombie outbreak, New York City is the last place I’d want to be. There’s already enough shoving and grabbing. That’s why this zombie prank scare to promote the return of The Walking Dead has picked the perfect setting. Busy New Yorkers hey-I’m-walking-here with their blinders on, snapping out of it only as the undead burst out of the subway grates below them. I’d lose my mind. Can we stop pranking unsuspecting victims with creepy supernatural stuff like telekinesis and devil babies? Before we know it, all we’ll have is horror pranks and society will turn into that really mean-spirited Telemundo prank show.

I’d merely like to wait for the bus!

Ryan Gosling has to be one of the most talented actors working today. Not only does he have the ability to embody countless characters (plus, he sang in Blue Valentine), he’s apparentl taken to walking the streets of New York City helping people. For proof, just check out this video. I’ll give you a minute to watch it.

Gosling's The Guy Behind The Guy In 'The Ides Of March' Trailer

Finished? Anyway, in the video, two New Yorkers get into a dispute over an exchange of goods, and the argument escalates into a physical confrontation. Of course, one lucky teenager was on the scene, raptly documenting the action with a video camera before Gosling even arrived to break it up. So remember: Next time you’re in trouble, just activate the Gosling Signal and sit tight. Help is on the way. (Vulture)

RUN from his argument about why he didn’t steal your answering machine message! COWER in fear as he calls everyone at the party “full of shit!” Larry David is like a neurotic King Kong, and he’s coming to DESTROY the Big Apple… through loud complaints and hard-to-watch life decisions!

The above trailer is for the eighth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, and after last year’s much buzzed about Seinfeld reunion episode, David has a lot of momentum going into the new season. As we reported, Larry David is going to New York City this year, his spiritual homeland. It’s a testament¬†to David’s unnaturally high level of neuroticness that in NYC, The Birthplace on the American Nebbish, David stands out like a socially awkward Cloverfield monster.

Welcome home, Larry!  (Cinema Blend)
