If you like that Conan O’Brien fella, but just can’t keep your eyes open past 10 PM, we have some good news. TBS and the ginger funnyman are going to meet you halfway with a primetime special on December 18th. It will be called Conan To Go, and it is likely slotted to recapture some of the rogue viewers who will be left to wander the late-night landscape after Stephen Colbert‘s departure in December. Like so many master-less samurai.

Ronin, if you will.

Conan To Go will be a compilation of bits and highlights from his first four years on TBS. However, if you’re looking for NBC era highlights, you can go straight to hell you are out of luck.

So tune in at 10/9C on the 18th, and prepare to have your funnybones shattered with jokes.

(THR)

Nick Offerman Did A Fake Infomercial For Handcrafted Emojis On Conan http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/nick-offerman-did-a-fake-infomercial-for-handcrafted-emojis-on-conan/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/nick-offerman-did-a-fake-infomercial-for-handcrafted-emojis-on-conan/#comments Fri, 14 Nov 2014 21:02:19 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=267415 ...and it's hilarious.

While Jimmies Fallon and Kimmel may make the more obvious plays for viral video clips, Conan, at least recently, has been making the funniest ones. Take, for instance, THIS VIDEO in which Nick Offerman jumps on the emoji bandwagon by offering a program in which you carve your own in real time.

It’s ridiculous, dumb, and, because it’s Nick Offerman, terrific.

There isn’t much else to say about a gag/skit that’s this silly. So just watch it, and enjoy Nick Offerman holding a big wooden turd that he probably built himself.

Bryan Cranston can’t stop being awesome. He won’t stop being awesome. A year after the sun has set on his Breaking Bad arc, he’s still managing to be an endearing presence in our lives. Case in point: even when he’s schilling for TBS and Major League Baseball for the upcoming playoffs, he’s still awesome.

How does he do it? He does it by creating a fake one-man play to inject even more drama to the playoffs. It’s hammy and awesome. Not unlike Cranston himself. I could go on describing the video, or you could watch it. It’s six minutes long, but you can manage to make the time. It’s for Cranston, after all.

The Super Troopers guys are known for their high-concept stoner work so far, having put together the aforementioned Super Troopers, Beerfest, Club Dread, and all that jazz. But now they’re taking things a little more domestic with Quality Time, a pilot they’re preparing for TBS.

The show will feature fictionalized versions of the Broken Lizard (their comedy troupe) members’ lives.

Before you get too excited (I sensed you were getting excited) you should know that perhaps the most prominent member of the troupe, Jay Chandrasekhar, will not be joining them. He’s enjoyed a pretty strong career directing comedy in television, so he doesn’t have time for this crap. Just kidding. He will most likely be directing much of the effort, as he’s directed all of their films to date.

It sounds promising, since these guys will probably offer up a take on adulthood that you won’t get from Modern Family or the like.

In order to kick off last night’s special Walking Dead-themed episode of Conan, Coco visited the backwoods of Georgia to show how the late night host fared during the Zombie Apocalypse. It’s incredibly well-done.

All in all, I find Zombie Conan much more enjoyable than Zombie Jay Leno.

My only qualm is that we didn’t get to see a zombified Masturbating Bear. But that’s really more of an issue for me to take up with science.

It’s been known for almost a year that Rashida Jones, along with Rob Lowe, is hightainling it out of Parks and Rec, for other opportunities. However, those opportunities were never clear. She sold two shows under her production company, but declined to star in either one.

Now it’s clear. She’ll be starring in a cop comedy called Tribeca that’s produced and pitched by Steve Carell and his wife, Nancy Walls. Lest you jump to a completely logic conclusion, let me state that the show will be set in LA, and Tribeca is the name of Jones’ character. Well then.

Jones’ Tribeca will be paired with a partner she doesn’t immediately gel with, but something tells me, over time, they’ll become a friends, or failing that, respect each other’s differences. Because that’s how these things work.

Steve Carell, who has had mixed success as a leading man, having gone from the initial success of The 40 Year-Old Virgin and Date Night to the lows of Dan in Real Life and Evan Almighty to the gooey middles of Burt Wonderstone, is heading back to the medium that made him.

He’s writing a police comedy for TBS. The show will be called Tribeca, and will follow Angie Tribeca (seriously) as she takes on cases with her eccentric coworkers. Sounds pretty promising. To help further sell the premise, she works for something called the “Heinous Crimes Unit,” which sounds pretty serious.

Carell will co-write with his wife, Nancy Walls, and will direct the pilot. There’s no mention of him starring or appearing in the show, so you can just get over yourself right now and be thankful for the work he’s doing on the show and stop asking for more.

Will Ferrell’s ‘Anchorman 2′ Announcement And His Other Wacky Conan O’Brien Appearances http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/will-ferrells-anchorman-2-announcement-and-his-other-wacky-conan-obrien-appearances/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/will-ferrells-anchorman-2-announcement-and-his-other-wacky-conan-obrien-appearances/#comments Thu, 29 Mar 2012 20:09:26 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=247834 Oh man! He's just the nuttiest! GOULET!

The post Will Ferrell’s ‘Anchorman 2′ Announcement And His Other Wacky Conan O’Brien Appearances appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Last night, history was made. Will Ferrell, appearing as legendary newsman Ronald Burgundy, went on Conan to inform the world that despite years of claims to the contrary, an Anchorman sequel is in the works. Millions of people who hadn’t even realized that they were lacking an Anchorman sequel in their lives rejoiced.

While Ferrell could have disseminated this information through a number of outlets, Conan has proved to be his go-to venue for, well, just about everything. He must REALLY like Conan, considering he’s got a whole comedy website (Funny or Die) that could also handle these announcements, while reaching just as many people. I guess it’s the spectacle of being on semi-live televisions, as well as Conan’s willingness to let Ferrell do pretty much whatever he wants.

He’s a good sport that way.

While this might be the most newsworthy of Ferrell’s appearances on Conan, it’s far from the most outrageous. Here’s a collection of Ferrell’s weirdest and funniest appearances on Conan.

“Free Bird”

The last image from Conan’s ill-fated Tonight Show tenure is this live performance of Lynard Skynard’s ballad “Free Bird,” which served as a fairly moving goodbye, in as much as a talk show hosting change can be moving. While Ferrell took vocal duties in the character of some southern-fried rocker, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, Beck, and Conan all took guitar duty while the rest of Conan’s band laid down rhythm.

It may have been during this video that casual fans learned that Conan is an absolute beast on guitar, and all fans, casual or not, were reminded that Ferrell doesn’t have a good singing voice.

Dog Obstacle Course

Here, Ferrell cracks on egg of knowledge on Conan fans, informing them that, during his downtime, he really, really, really enjoys training dogs for obstacle courses in shows.

To share his passion with the world, he brought on a few dogs and set up an obstacle course. Though it’s Will Ferrell, and we all know he’s joking, he comes across as genuine right until the moment he points out the tightrope on the course. That could be an issue.

And it is. It turns out that Will Ferrell is absolutely terrible at training dogs, as they just continue to mill about idly once they take the stage. Ferrell adopts his loud, frustrated persona, and a good time is had by all.

As Robert GOULET!

One of Ferrell’s most beloved characters is a caricature of lounge singer Robert Goulet. Will came onto Conan’s Tonight Show in character, constantly mistaking Conan for Johnny Carson, and his New York studio for Johnny’s Burbank one back in the day. Even on SNL, Goulet was one of Ferrell’s more absurd characters, but the new dimensions are shown when he gets the opportunity to improvise and riff with the always-game Conan and Co.

GOULET! LAVENDER!

Will Shaves Conan

After getting yanked from The Tonight Show while he was still forbidden from appearing on TV, Conan grew one of those beards you grow when you backpack through Nepal or when your girlfriend breaks up with you. However, when he finally got the ball rolling on TBS, it was a new beginning, and the beard had to go.

There was no question who would handle the duties. Will Ferrell appears on the show, ostensibly to talk about his new movie, but he quickly tells Conan to “shut the fuck up,” and gets the beard-trimming ball rolling.

Spoiler alert: Ferrell quits about halfway through, leaving Conan with an awesomely hilarious half-beard thing.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Hey! It’s Will Ferrell being outrageous again! This time he’s dressed as a damn Leprchaun. Oh, Will! You’re just outrageous!

It’s a little difficult to keep explaining why these appearances are funny, and describe what’s going on. Will Ferrell showed up at Conan’s show dressed as a leprechaun in a Speedo. It’s funny because people normally don’t do that.

Just watch the damn video.

Christmas is right around the corner, which means it will soon be time to avoid TBS like the plague. That is, unless you want to get sucked into watching 24 hours of A Christmas Story. The modern Christmas classic is filled with memorable scenes and characters, but whatever became of the cast? Normally the answer to a question like that is death or porno. However, in this instance, that’s only partially true.

Read on to find out where the Parkers and the maladjusted neighborhood children be at now.

Ralphie

Peter Billingsley is best known for his on-camera work as Ralphie, the protagonist of A Christmas Story. However, he’s had an even more successful career behind the camera. After befriending Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau, he’s gone on to produce films like Made, The Break-Up, Iron Man, and Four Christmases. He also directed Couple’s Retreat. Somebody had to, I guess.

The Old Man

Darren McGavin steals the show as Ralphie’s stern, lamp-loving father. Sadly, he’s not with us anymore but he’s left behind an impressive resume with roles on The X-Files, some older crap, and most impressively, as Billy Madison’s dad. It takes a fine actor to stand there next to a guy in a giant penguin costume and pretend to not notice the giant penguin.

With only five days until Christmas, the holiday season is in full swing. Before you can say Happy Kwanzaa, you’ll be sitting next to your Uncle Ronnie, listening to him drone on and on about Obama‘s ties to the occult as you desperately pray for a distraction.

That’s why this year, we’re giving you the gift of gifs!

These 61 classic Christmas-movie gifs are sure to distract your family. They feature some of the best scenes from your favorite holiday films (and a few you probably hate), but unlike the source material, they never end, so there’s no excuse for talking to your family at a holiday function.

Take one look at the protesters in New York, and it becomes immediately clear that anyone, and I do mean anyone (crazies, hippies, rapists, Russell Brand) can “occupy” Wall Street. But it takes a very special person to make Wall Street his bitch. In fact, it takes a dog. Triumph, the Insult comic Dog, to be specific.

On last night’s Conan, which has been filming in New York all week, the mean-spirited mutt took to the streets, mocking the vast array of weirdos he found camped out in the financial district. But he also took time to insult the bankers and stock brokers who work in the area. At one point, a giant inflatable Triumph was used to bang the iconic Charging Bull statue from behind (a.k.a. Doggie Style), a symbolic gesture that’s sure to resonate with many Americans as well as the hoards of confused Japanese tourists randomly passing by.

The post 9 Talk Shows That Crashed And Burned Faster Than ‘Lopez Tonight’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
After nearly two years on the air, TBS has canceled George Lopez’s talk show, Lopez Tonight, due to low ratings. After moving the show back by an hour to make way for Conan O’Brein, Lopez’s audience fell off by nearly 40%, and never recovered from the drop. But in all fairness to Conan, the later time slot only exacerbated an existing problem: the fact that the show was about as funny as stapling your scrotum to your thigh. But me bashing George Lopez for not being funny is like Michael Jackson bashing Amy Winehouse for reckless drug use. So instead of poking fun at a man who has achieved more success than most of us could even fathom, I’ll just point out nine other talk-show hosts who crashed and burned even harder than he did. Enjoy.

Also, please note that you will be watching a lot of clips from the 80′s and early 90′s, so prepare yourself for an outrageous amount of saxophone.

The Pat Sajak Show - Jan., 1989 to Apr., 1990

Those of you who aren’t old enough to remember the 80′s are blessed. It was an awful time, as evidenced by this clip. Yes, that’s Pat Sajak, the guy who hosts Wheel of Fortune. There’s no reason to particularly dislike the man, but seeing that sweater in the intro is enough to make people change the channel. However, he was ahead of his time on the whole Betty White craze.

It feels like “Conan” has been on TBS for forever now. I’m not sure how Conan O’Brien would feel about that statement, but I mean it as a compliment. As far as I’m concerned, we now have Coco in our lives again, and all that Leno stuff is water under the late night bridge. (By that I mean, the Brooklyn Bridge at night.)

So the new documentary Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop takes us back to a time many one year and a few months ago, where O’Brien left “The Tonight Show” and embarked on a 32-state tour of the country called “The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour.” Looks like we’re getting a close-up look at the man behind the red mop… but will we like what we see?

Yeah, probably. Director Rodman Flender takes us into the Cone-Zone Jun 24, 2011 in limited release. You can read out our review of Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop here.

Welp, looks like TBS is going to need to retire that “Very Funny!,” catchphrase. The sassy, black grandma-man hybrid thing that is Tyler Perry has closed a deal to create a third television series for the super-station. “For Better Or Worse” will continue the story established in Perry’s Why Did I Get Married? series, and will star Black Dynamite and that chick from Couple’s Retreat as a couple who are curious why they got married for reasons beyond the ability to rub it in gay people’s faces.

“Tyler Perry’s series have been tremendously successful for TBS, helping establish the network as a prime destination for African-American viewers,” said Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming, for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies. “Given such a remarkable track record, we’re excited for the opportunity to expand our relationship with Tyler Perry and Debmar-Mercury with the new series For Better or Worse.”

Somewhere in Hollywood, a former cast member of “10 Items Or Less” weeps into the macchiato I ordered four goddamn minutes ago. (THR)

When is a hit show possibly not a hit show? When everyone is DVRing it.

Some folks are saying Conan O’Brien‘s ratings aren’t very good, because he’s getting beaten regularly by rivals Jay Leno and David Letterman. First, please take a moment to “boo” the name Jay Leno out loud in front of your computer.

Done? Good. Now, here’s the problem: “Conan” on TBS seems to always have less total viewers and often less 18-49 year old viewers than the shows of his older counterparts. However, thanks to newfangled TV gadgets, we now have “plus 7 ratings,” which counts viewers who watch a show on DVR up to 7 days after recording it (and has nothing to do with sneaking way too many of your friends into a party).

If you factor in O’Brien’s plus 7, as his William Morris Endeavor agent Rick Rosen said he does in a recent statement, then Coco is a Hit-O.

“The ratings system needs to catch up to the viewing patterns and the world,” declared Rosen, adding: “To me it’s the most significant challenge to television today.”

Conan‘s audience is younger too. On average, O’Brien’s audience is a Twitter-Trackin’ 34, compared to Leno and Letterman’s Twitter-Fearin’ mid-50s. So maybe “size” isn’t everything. Being young and gangly counts for something too. (Hollywood Reporter)

New Zealand Apologizes To Anna Faris, Will Faris Apologize For ‘Yogi Bear?’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/new-zealand-apologizes-to-anna-faris-will-faris-apologize-for-super-ex-girlfriend/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/new-zealand-apologizes-to-anna-faris-will-faris-apologize-for-super-ex-girlfriend/#comments Wed, 26 Jan 2011 02:26:31 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=22359 Faris got harassed on the New Zealand set of 'Yogi Bear,' and the country said some things it later regretted.

The country of New Zealand realized they can’t possibly stand up to the powerhouse that is the almighty Anna Faris, and backed down from their recent war-of-words with the sexy, fearsome star of The House Bunny.

According to her interview with Conan‘s super lame TBS talk show cousin George Lopez, Faris was harassed by rowdy New Zealander dudes watching her film recent cinema masterpiece Yogi Bear. From there, Faris concluded that all New Zealand guys are (CG animated) pigs, which Ian Long, spokesman for the New Zealand tourism board, took offense to.

Noting that Faris received an award for being a smoking hot pot smoker later on Lopez, Long said that since “she accepts an award for being a pothead stoner of the year… I don’t think she has any credibility.” His bosses weren’t pleased with that, and New Zealand released this official retraction:

“The inference that Tourism NZ did not take Ms. Faris’ comments seriously is very much regretted and was certainly not intended. On a U.S. talk show Ms. Faris spoke about disrespectful behavior she experienced during her stay in New Zealand and as a consequence her impression of New Zealand men is, to say the least, poor.”

When Bart Simpson pissed off Australia, they gave him a booting. I don’t think Faris was in the wrong, but I’d still like her to receive a booting. It beats an entire country pussying out on what could have been an awesome publicity war. Then again, when I think of “great wars,” none of them involve New Zealand. (Cinema Blend)

See for yourself by reading the detailed notes of my social experiment.

The post 24 Hours of ‘A Christmas Story’: A Journey Into Madness appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>

For every Christmas in recent memory, TBS has broadcast Bob Clark’s Christmas classic, A Christmas Story. While other holiday films have become an annual tradition as well, A Christmas Story has the unique distinction of being run for 24 hours, starting at 8PM EST on Christmas Eve. I usually end up watching the entire film in bits and pieces throughout the holiday. And while I love seeing Ralphie and his family, I couldn’t help but wonder if my feelings would hold up upon actually watching the entire 24-hour marathon. So last Sunday, I decided to put myself to the test and watch the film for 24-straight hours.

Did my admiration for A Christmas Story grow even stronger, or did the compounding monotony of each subsequent viewing slowly strain my will to live? See for yourself by reading the detailed notes of my 24-hours of A Christmas Story social experiment.

Minute 5: The warm glow of nostalgia has washed over me. The film makes me think of my childhood, but the time-frame makes me think of what Christmas was probably like for my parents and grandparents.

1 Hour and 33 Minutes: What a great movie. No wonder people are able to watch it over and over again. Merry Christmas, indeed.


3 Hours and 57 Minutes: LOL! “Fra-gee-lay!” That will never get old!

5 Hours and 23 Minutes: It’s “fragile,” you crotchety old imbecile! Say it right!

6 Hours and 37 Minutes: Gee, I wonder what Ralphie’s mom would look like topless?


6 Hours and 39 Minutes: Well, that answers that! Thank you, Google Image Search. Thank you, Mr. Skin. And thank you, Melinda Dillon, for those lovely “Banana Ups.”

7 Hours and 54 Minutes: God damn it, Ralphie! The decoded message is just going to be a god-damn advertisement. Don’t believe the hype!

9 Hours: Scut Farkus is such a piece of sh*t. What kind of name is that? I can’t stand that stupid hat. This movie should end with the Bumpuses’ dogs ripping him limb from limb.


9 Hours and 2 Minutes: Holy crap! Scut Farkus was in Transformers? And “Deadwood?” And a Uwe Boll movie?

11 Hours: I wonder if Asians hate the “Fa Ra Ra Ra Ra” scene? I bet they do, but they know better than to bitch about A Christmas Story. I wonder if Panda Express delivers?

13 Hours and 44 Minutes: Soap poisoning? That doesn’t even make sense! Screw you, you four-eyed little freak.


14 Hours and 29 Minutes: Just cut his goddamn tongue off, or leave him to die. It’s called natural selection, people! We’re deluding the gene pool!

15 Hours and 7 Minutes: This is the worst god damn movie in the world. I hate it. I hate Christmas. What I wouldn’t give to watch Fiddler on the Roof right now.

16 Hours and 2 Minutes: The guy who directed this awful thing was killed by a drunk-driving illegal immigrant. Looks like I’m now in favor of amnesty and and against MADD!


18 Hours: Fun fact! Although it was filmed in Cleveland, A Christmas Story takes place in Hammond, Indiana, the boyhood home of author Jean Shepherd. However, the actual home where Shepherd grew up was demolished to make way for The Industrial Strip, Chicagoland’s ultimate adult entertainment venue.

20 Hours and 10 Minutes: God damn you, Randy. God damn you straight to hell, you little mother fudger.

21 Hours and 33 Minutes:I am the angel of death. The hour of purification is near.

22 Hours and 2 Minutes – Jesus Christ… Did my furnace just growl at me? Where’s my gun? MOM, DID YOU TOUCH MY GUN? Oh right, you died in 2004. Sorry.


23 Hours and 15 Minutes: I’m afraid. I’m afraid, Ralphie. Ralphie, my mind is going. I can feel it. I can feel it. My mind is going. There is no question about it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I’m a… fraid.

23 Hours and 37 Minutes – Would you like more Slim Jims, Santa Claus? Fine, suit yourself. More for me. Idiot.

24 Hours: Santa, don’t turn that off! There’s only twenty minutes left! What’s with the straight jacket? Where are you taking me? Call off your elves, you fat son of a bitch! Mom, help! Help!

Although the TBS comedy series “Glory Daze” has already set the record for highest number of outdated college stereotypes employed in a single hour of television, shows like this tend to glaze over their inward mediocrity with outward displays of mind-blowing female awesomeness. Hence the appearance of noted on-screen smokeshow Julianna Guill in the show’s pilot episode. We’d tune in every week just to see more of her. That’s what DVR is for.

A word from Julianna: “I always have a hard time watching horror movies that I’m not in because they really scare me.”

Conan O’Brien returned to the airwaves last night to prove that you can banish him to basic cable, but you can’t take away what makes him great. And it looks like with ‘Conan,’ he helped TBS finally earn their “Very Funny” slogan.

The show opened with a really slick segment that skewered NBC’s bonkers decision to dick him around. It’s not the end-all be-all of comedy by any stretch, but it displays a sly zaniness that you don’t see in late night television. And it’s light years better than watching Jay Leno ring random Los Angelenos’s doorbells. Just once, I’d like to see him knock on the wrong door and end up in hot water. Like, he accidentally films a paranoid militia-man. Or Gary Busey.

Check out the clip and let us know what you thought about Conan’s first show.

Here's hoping the production value of the actual show exceeds this one. I know it's not NBC, but paint is so affordable these days. I don't want to ruin the guest since he only stays for 30 seconds, so I'll only say that it causes a BIG BANG THEORY. Diet Coke probably gets more air time than anything else. Hey, someone's gotta pay for those spotlight gels. Check out "Show Zero" after the jump...

As you can see from the above screen grab, crazy sh*t is going down. I've been watching it for awhile now and it's oddly fascinating. There has been an 80's aerobics class, a public speaker, and a black man holding up a sign that says "I See White People!!!" I personally just like watching the employees walk by. It makes me feel like I'm part of a nurturing office environment. Not this damp cellar they call SJ Headquarters. The Live Coco Cam is live until tomorrow at 1PM ET/10AM PT. Check it out HERE.

Page 6 is reporting that Conan O'Brien's writers aren't happy with the pay being doled out by their new employer. Apparently they are under the impression that the network, which until recently conisisted of nothing but Atlanta Braves' games and old Hanna-Barbera cartoons, is swimming in cash. "This is no surprise," said an insider. "One show was broadcast network; the other is basic cable. It's a different pay scale. It's not just writers; it's everybody." Despite the complaints, no formal agreement has been made. The Writers Guild is still in talks with TBS, so it's possible that the network will find a way to come up with more cash. Perhaps they could stop paying homeless drifters to be in the George Lopez studio audience and just switch to a laugh track. Although in all fairness, the technology to create laughter for that show is probably a few years away.
