Joy Behar Corden Attacked Bad Guy, Not Victims ... Cut Him a Break, Rose!!!

10/16/2017 1:02 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Joy Behar is jumping to James Corden's defense after his Harvey Weinstein jokes got him skewered.

We got Joy Monday in NYC where she said Rose McGowan was going after the wrong guy by blasting Corden for his Weinstein comments at an AMFAR event.

If ya missed it, Rose called him a "motherf**king piglet" -- but Joy says it's not like James was mocking Weinstein victims. Plus, she says it's hardly fresh ground ... lots of late night hosts have laid into the movie mogul.

Corden has since apologized, but the way Joy sees it ... there was no need. Not with actual piglets still roaming Hollywood -- and she names names. 

James Corden Sorry for the Bad Weinstein Jokes

Breaking News

James Corden is apologizing for making light of the Harvey Weinstein scandal with tasteless jokes he made onstage ... and after Rose McGowan teared into him online.

Corden issued an apology Sunday saying "To be clear, sexual assault is no laughing matter. I was not trying to make light of Harvey’s inexcusable behavior, but to shame him, the abuser, not his victims. I am truly sorry for anyone offended, that was never my intention."

The "Late Late Show" star caught a ton of flak this weekend for jokes he cracked while hosting the amfAR Gala on Friday in L.A.

Corden's comments were met with a lot of groans and little laughs, but he persisted and kept the offensive Weinstein jokes coming through the night. One of his biggest critics was Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan, who called Corden a "MOTHERF****** PIGLET"  on Twitter.

If there's one thing we've learned this week ... it's that Rose knows no filter ... and takes no prisoners on the subject of Weinstein. Seems Corden knows that all too well now. 

Senator Bill Cassidy Kimmel is Wrong ... My Health Bill Works

9/20/2017 9:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Senator Bill Cassidy respectfully disagrees with Jimmy Kimmel as to whether his new health care bill is the right fix to Obamacare -- but as for that "Kimmel test" ... uhhh.

We got the Louisiana senator Wednesday on Capitol Hill -- where he and Lindsey Graham are trying to get a new health bill passed to repeal and replace Obamacare by the end of the month -- and he says Kimmel's misinformed about what this new law would do.

He says it WILL protect folks with pre-existing conditions, and WILL get more people covered in general. Jimmy believes the opposite, saying the bill gives states more power to allocate money from the government -- and he thinks that will backfire.

Jimmy went on the attack on his show Tuesday night ... saying Cassidy's bill is too complicated ... and furthermore, he lied ... in Jimmy's eyes.

One thing is clear from Cassidy here ... the so-called "Kimmel test" he once endorsed might be out the window.

James Corden Practically Perfect In Every Way ... As Mary Poppins!!!

6/1/2017 8:21 AM PDT

James Corden did the most British thing ever -- besides high tea with the Queen -- when he dressed up as Mary Poppins and paraded across a London street singing her greatest hits.

Corden's late night show is shooting a few episodes across the pond to air next week. He has a recurring sketch called Crosswalk the Musical where he dresses up and sings in the middle of crosswalks. He's done it before with "Beauty and the Beast."

No detail was left out for James' Mary Poppins bit ... Julie Andrews would be proud.

Stephen Colbert Hey Donald, Don't Hurry Back

EXCLUSIVE

Stephen Colbert looked super relaxed Saturday in NYC, apparently relieved the Commander in Chief is otherwise occupied.

The talk show king clearly thinks Donald Trump shouldn't rush things along in the Middle East ... favoring an extended trip for the Prez.

Colbert was on his way in to Milk Studios for Vulture Fest, where he sat with Aziz Ansari, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kevin Bacon on a panel to discuss the TV biz.

The good news for Colbert ... wherever in the world Trump is, there's plenty of material.

Stephen Colbert to Prez Trump Ha! YOU Want to Bring Up Ratings??

5/12/2017 6:49 AM PDT

Stephen Colbert is declaring victory in his feud with Donald Trump, saying it's pretty rich of the prez to bring up ratings ... when his approval numbers are in the toilet.

Colbert was more than happy to respond to Trump calling him a "no-talent guy." In his Thursday night monologue, he said, "I've been trying for a year to get you to say my name ... I won."

The host also addressed Trump saying he has a "filthy mouth" -- "I do occasionally use adult language, and I do it in public instead of the privacy of an 'Access Hollywood' bus." Ya walked right into that one, Mr. Commander-in-Chief.

Check out the rest of the skewering ... which covered ratings, Nixon and Alfred E. Neuman. Hysterical.

T.I. President Trump's a Hypocrite For Colbert Clapback

5/12/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

President Donald Trump has some nerve calling Stephen Colbert a "no-talent guy" with a "filthy" mouth ... according to T.I. who says the prez has traded the White House for a glass one. 

Tip had landed at LAX when he weighed in on Trump's comeback shot, after the late night host referred to him as "Vladimir Putin's cock holster."

T.I.'s clearly Team Colbert and recalls that, in his opinion, Trump's said worse. Plus, he thinks it's pretty obvious who's really benefitting from the beef.

President Donald Trump finally clapped back ... tearing Stephen Colbert a new one after the comedian's controversial takedown of the prez.

Trump says Colbert is a "no-talent guy" who has "nothing funny" to say and what he DOES say is "filthy." It's the first time Trump's addressed Colbert's monologue from last week ... which he punctuated with ... "The only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin's cock holster."

Trump told TIME magazine, "The guy was dying. By the way they were going to take him off television, then he started attacking me and he started doing better. But his show was dying."

Aaaand the ball's back in Colbert's court.

Jimmy Kimmel Breaks Down on Show Describing Newborn's Heart Surgery

5/2/2017 6:53 AM PDT

Jimmy Kimmel was on the verge of tears during his opening monologue Monday as he described the terrifying experience immediately after the birth of his son ... who needed life-saving heart surgery.

Jimmy's son, Billy, was born a little over a week ago and seemed fine at first ... but hours later was diagnosed with a heart condition that required open heart surgery.

The comedian says Billy's pulmonary valve was completely blocked, and he also had a hole in the wall between the left and right sides of his heart. His first open heart surgery was apparently a success ... but Jimmy says he'll have to have more operations in the future.

It's a pretty emotional clip ... grab the tissues.

EXCLUSIVE

Dave Grohl is super proud of his mom's new book about raising him ... but when it comes to describing the kind of kid Dave was growing up ... well, he stepped in and ended that conversation! 

We got Dave and his mother, Virginia, in NYC Wednesday -- where she kicked off her tour for her new book, "From Cradle to Stage: Stories From the Mothers Who Rocked and Raised Rock Stars," on 'The Late Show.'

The book sounds interesting ... Virginia interviews the mothers of Dr. Dre, Amy Winehouse, Adam Levine and others ... chronicling trajectories to fame.

David Letterman Gives Colbert Props ... 'It Would Kill Me' to Do That Show

4/3/2017 12:44 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

David Letterman's never looked so happy to NOT be hosting the 'Late Show,' and told us ... more power to Stephen Colbert for killing it in the ratings.

We got Dave and his massive beard out in NYC Monday -- he joked it's the first time he's been outside in a month, but by the looks of him it could be true. He let us in on his new daily grooming routine, and talked about his old late night stomping grounds.

You'd think he's missing it these days with all the Trump-related material that seems prime for a Top 10 list. Instead, he paid Colbert a nice compliment and made it clear he's thrilled to be doing nothing.

This is retirement done right.

Justin Trudeau to Matthew Perry How 'Bout a Rematch, Bub?

4/2/2017 6:57 AM PDT

Justin Trudeau wants a rematch with Matthew Perry after getting his ass kicked in grade school and Matt telling the world about it -- FIGHT!!!

The Canadian PM said "I've been giving it some thought, and you know what, who hasn't wanted to punch Chandler? How about a rematch @MatthewPerry?" 

You'll recall ... Matt went on Kimmel earlier this month and told the story of how he once beat up a younger Trudeau for "excelling in a sport."

Now, JT tweeted the challenge on April Fool's day, so chances are he's joking. But it would be awesome!

As long as nothing happened to Trudeau's face, that is. 

Les Moonves Colbert Would Win Even If Trump Didn't

EXCLUSIVE

CBS honcho Les Moonves undeniably has the Midas touch when it comes to picking shows and talent, but he swears he did NOT have a premonition Donald Trump would become prez when he tapped Stephen Colbert to replace David Letterman.

Colbert has been king of the heap in the ratings, topping Jimmy Fallon in late night. Conventional wisdom is that Donald Trump has given Colbert the firepower to become #1.

But Moonves thinks Trump, Hillary, whatever ... it didn't much matter.
