Not engaged. NOT engaged. I just want to make that clear because most headlines you’ve read this morning will probably say that he IS engaged. But he’s NOT engaged. It was a prank. Because this is what happens when Joaquin Phoenix appears on David Letterman. He either pretends he’s retiring and f-cked up and on the verge of a breakdown or he tells a story about falling in love with his yoga instructor. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

"I won't be doing the new show in character, so we'll all get to find out how much of him was me. I'm looking forward to it." – What Stephen Colbert told The New York Times about succeeding David Letterman on Late Night. Apparently there were a lot of people who called for the job the day Letterman announced he was retiring. Colbert was one of them. And when CBS was interested too, he insisted that they clear it with Dave so that he could get Letterman’s blessing. Letterman obliged. At least that’s the story they’re giving the public.

SO curious what Colbert looks like without the “character”. That was probably the most common question yesterday, right? Who IS Stephen Colbert? And can the real Stephen Colbert handle the standard operating procedures that come with network television? He’s pretty selective about the guest content on The Colbert Report.  Read Full Intro

Colbert is the new Letterman

Man, that happened FAST. Kind of makes you think some wheels were already turning, and when, in the wake of David Letterman announcing his retirement the entire nation yelled as one, IT SHOULD BE COLBERT, they cemented a deal that was already in the works. Full Story

Good night, Dave

Yesterday during the taping of his show, David Letterman stunned his audience by announcing his retirement. He’s been on late night television for thirty-two years, the last twenty-one of which have been behind the desk at The Late Show with David Letterman. He broke Johnny Carson’s record in 2013 to become the longest-running late night host, and he stuck around long enough to outlast his rival, Jay Leno, which I’m sure is not coincidental. Full Story

How do you follow up Beyonce and Olivia Pope? Everyone else today has to measure up. God I hope Angelina Jolie makes an appearance. But Julia Roberts works too. Julia was on Letterman yesterday before attending the premiere of August: Osage County. Beyonce? Sorry. Right now Beyonce is everything. Full Story

Lindsay Lohan was on Letterman last night. You may have already heard about their “awkward” exchange when he pressed her on her rehab and when she’s going and her addictions, etc, but when you watch it back, you’ll see it wasn’t awkward. It was banter. She actually sasses him. Full Story

As I mentioned last week, I am loving Shia LaBeouf right now. I love him so much. Because he has been nothing but entertaining. Crazy, but entertaining. Shia was supposed to be on Broadway in Orphans. But he and Alec Baldwin couldn’t stop yelling at each other. Full Story

God that was painful. Just sat through Letterman’s interview with Tom Cruise last night. It was 3 segments which...if you’re familiar with Dave, you know, normally, only the veteran chatters, the good ones, they get 3 segments. Like Tom Hanks. Or Julia Roberts. George Clooney, Sandra Bullock, the ones who can play, and roll, and wit. Full Story

I know it was officially the Time 100 party last night but scanning through all the pictures it really looked like it was Amy Poehler’s party. I want to go to an Amy Poehler party. Remember at the Emmys when all the comedy ladies took the stage like a pageant and held each other until a winner was crowned? You know that was all Poehler, right? Poehler is what Ashley Judd was trying to write Full Story

Two former Oscar hosts decided to be smug together on television last night as James Franco appeared on Letterman to promote Your Highness for his first interview since sucking at the Oscars in February. And how does he sum up his disappointing performance? Well, he said he tried his best, he said Anne Hathaway was too hyper, and that we’re all hypocrites for hating on his hosting duties after saying the Oscars are irrelevant. Full Story

Did you watch Natalie Portman on Letterman last night? I actually wasn’t intending to watch it, but I saw pap photos of Jay Pharoah arriving at the studio and I set the PVR to make sure to catch him, and then when Jacek and I turned it on later, there she was as the first guest, and that kicked off 15 minutes of co-jerking between him and Dave, the two of them sharing hard-ons through the television. Full Story

Julia Roberts is in New York today, photographed here arriving at Letterman for her appearance tonight, the first time she’s visited him since his infidelity scandal. As you know, Julia is a Letterman favourite. Their chemistry is always, always amazing. One of the few 3 segments guests on his show. Full Story

But she has great new hair. LOVE the new hair. And all the ways she was wearing the new hair. Punches up the layers, makes her eyes look different. Very, very beautiful. Kristen Stewart was in New York last night to promote Twilight Eclipse on Letterman and then for the NYC premiere. Two similar dresses. Full Story

It was the most wonderfully awkward interview. Dave does that thing he’s so good at doing – he mocks her but also adores her, and he doesn’t understand her, but he really isn’t trying either, and as a result, her amazingness was allowed to flourish for us all. This is good tv. Full Story
