Craig Ferguson and Aisha Tyler Talk Porn and Barbara Walters (VIDEO)

Aisha Tyler, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'As soon as Aisha Tyler declared that porn was upsetting and she'd rather move on to another topic, you knew they were going to be talking porn on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS).

Craig Ferguson said that his biggest issue with porn is in the framing. "I don't think you're meant to see it that close," he said.

But when Tyler suggested they use the soft-texture overlay you tend to see on Barbara Walters interview specials, Ferguson took off in another direction. "Barbara Walters porn!" he shouted. "I'd pay to see that!"

According to reports, Chandler has received a "very lucrative offer" to star in the new Fox drama 'Terra Nova' from producers Steven Spielberg and Peter Chernin, about a family who travels back in time to the dinosaur age. The series is already expected to be picked up under a 13-episode order. In the meantime, fans can check out Chandler when 'FNL' season 4 premieres Fri., May 7 on NBC. (Watch the trailer here.)

'Archer' - 'Dial M for Mother' Recap (Season Finale)

(S01E10) Whoa, whoa, whoa. Did 'Archer' just get sentimental on us for a split second? It was an almost stealthy move. Sure, the season finale wrapped up with Mallory calling her son an ass but it was... sweet. Considering the whole super-spy nature of the show, the rest of the finale wasn't very action-packed. Instead, the focus remained on Archer and Mallory's relationship and the sick, twisted world of ISIS office romances. I think the picture accompanying this post pretty much sums that part up.

Overall, though, this was one of my favorite episodes from the series so far, with a lot of laugh-out-loud moments. And I'm sure you didn't realize we needed a new "Schwing!" but let's pretend that's what "Sploosh" (with the little hand motion) is going to be.

'Archer' - 'Job Offer' Recap

Just one more episode to go before 'Archer' wraps up its ten-episode run. It will be interesting to see if FX brings it back for another season. The show's super-spy universe really lends itself to further exploration, but the characters' tangled web of sexual tension and missing fathers may not hold up for another ten episodes. It's a small cast of main characters, and the back-and-forth nature can only last so long. [Edit: 'Archer' has been renewed. I knew that. I was totally just testing you guys. Totally.]

Maybe some new problems will be introduced in the finale, leaving us begging for more. Or maybe everyone will die in a fiery, sexy explosion. Y'never know.

'Archer' - 'Skytanic' Recap

In this kind of, sort of action-packed episode of 'Archer,' the screwed-up relationships between characters really picked up speed. Drama is always heightened when you're stuck with your ex and your unfaithful current beau in a ticking time bomb of a blimp -- er, rigid airship.

It will be interesting to see how much longer they can go on without addressing Cyril's affair with Cheryl/Carol/what's-her-face. The show is only set to run for ten episodes, so it's not unimaginable that they could leave the big reveal for the final episode. And we can assume it will be big because we all saw what Lana did even when Archer and Cyril were just training together.

'Archer' - 'Skorpio' Recap

This week's episode involved yet another super-spy mission and drugs and chocolate fountains, but the main focus was really the always-hot drama bubbling under the surface amongst the employees of ISIS.

So, Lana's off to take on another mission, this time with the extra-hairy arms dealer, Skorpio. Malory has also scampered away under some business-y business pretenses but she's really hanging out with her KGB lover, Nikolai, on his Chum Guzzler. That leaves Cyril and the rest of the ISIS crew to hang around in the office and not do work. Of course, office gossip ensues and we're left knowing a little too much about certain characters.

Review: 'Archer' - 'The Honey Pot'

(S01E05) Y'know the way you've been frantically scribbling in your diary for the past few years about how badly you want to see Thomas Lennon and Ron Perlman voice animated characters together? Yeah. I bet you thought you would keep writing forever. But 'Archer' sensed the secret wish in your tear-stained pages and made it a reality.

This episode wasn't quite as rapid-fire funny as some of the previous ones but it was still fantastic. It's clear that the writers are having a lot of fun with the characters, even the ones that pop up for only one mission.

Review: Archer - Killing Utne

Ah, yes. Yet another fine episode of Archer. This show has been steadily funny, which is good. I'm still waiting for it to do something outrageous and surprise us with a particularly extra-hilarious or an especially terrible episode, but I don't mind watching something that I can rely on for decent laughs, even if it doesn't leave me rolling on the floor.

5 Reasons 'Archer' Is the Funniest New Comedy on TV

by Sharon Knolle, posted Jan 28th 2010 12:45PM
After Austin Powers, Maxwell Smart and who knows how many other take-offs on James Bond, do we really need another spy spoof? If you're talking 'Archer,' FX's hilarious new animated series, then yes, yes we do.

Picture it as 'Mad Men,' if the opening graphics were the whole show, and it wasn't about Sterling Cooper, New York ad agency, but Sterling Archer, ISIS intelligence agent. And if it were a whole lot sillier. And more crass.

Or maybe it's more like old-school Hanna-Barbera adventure series 'Jonny Quest,' but with actual swear words and zero life lessons.

Here are five excellent reasons why you should be tuning in ...

Review: Archer - Diversity Hire

Archer Diversity Hire
(S01E03) Considering Archer's previous episodes, the title "Diversity Hire" should have allowed you plenty of time to prepare yourself for lots of groan-worthy racial jokes. And yeah, that was definitely what we got. Overall, it was a pretty solid episode; the thirty minutes really went by in a blur because those jokes came rapid-fire.

This week, the ISIS lost yet another non-white agent and needed to make a diversity hire to get some sweet tax action (or not get tax action, I guess). Enter, Conway Stern, a black Jewish agent who is so nice and efficient, it is borderline suspicious.

Review: Archer - Training Day

FX, those bunch of sneaky so-and-sos. Their new hot piece of animated action was set to premiere Thursday night, but instead of airing the "Mole Hunt" episode that quietly previewed after It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia a few months ago, they pulled a fast one and showed an all-new episode first. I guess "Training Day" is to be considered the proper series premiere at this point? Even if it's really the second episode? Question mark?

If you'd rather hang on and revisit "Mole Hunt," our own Jonathan Toomey took care of that. Here, we're going to take a look at "Training Day."

Aisha Tyler Jokes About 'Archer,' Loving Cartoons & Inappropriate Workplace Activities - VIDEO

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jan 14th 2010 9:00AM
Aisha TylerAisha Tyler loves cartoons. Not the Saturday morning kids kind though ... the raunchy, hilarious, made-for-adults kind. (And you thought you couldn't love her any more.)

After getting addicted to 'Sealab 2021' while she was hosting 'Talk Soup,' Tyler says she jumped at the chance to be part of 'Archer,' the latest animated series from 'Sealab' creator Adam Reed. Even if it meant just saying "poo" over and over and over again.

Luckily, her 'Archer' character Lana Kane is much smarter than any poo-sayer she could think up. Luckier? She's a sexy, tough-as-nails super spy. Even luckier still? She gets around.

AOL TV caught up with the quick-witted comedienne to get the scoop on the new show (premieres Thurs., Jan. 14, 10PM ET on FX), her John Woo-style gunslinging and some interesting office behavior that makes 'Archer' completely unsuitable for children. In the best ways possible, of course.

Archer -- An early look

There is only one really bad thing about Archer, and that's the fact it's going to make my Thursday viewing line-up very, very full. Way to not anticipate my needs, FX. Geez.

I just sampled five episodes of FX's new animated offering, including the pilot that quietly aired a few months ago (reviewed by Jonathan Toomey here), and I already love it. There are a lot of appealing things about Archer: It's 60s-style super-spy adventures plus hilarious writing that maintains a great pace for the entire half-hour. Oh, and puns. Lots of puns.

Comedy Central's holiday weekend Stand-Up Blowout

by Nick Zaino, posted Jul 3rd 2009 9:32AM
Katt WilliamsSince programming anything new is probably a waste on a holiday weekend, Comedy Central is programming roughly 4,000 previously aired stand-up specials (okay, just 40, but that's a lot) from some of the biggest names on its rosters, including Dane Cook, Jeff Dunham, Katt Williams, Louis C.K., Lewis Black, Brian Regan, Demetri Martin, Ron White, Lisa Lampanelli, and Jim Gaffigan. They'll also sprinkle in some of their Comedy Central Presents half-hour showcases. It's called the Stand-Up Blowout Weekend.

The first special is at 3 PM - Aisha Tyler is Lit: Live at the Fillmore and end, officially, with Drew Hastings: Irked and Miffed at 3 AM Monday morning. Sunday at 10PM is the network premiere of Dave Attell: Captain Miserable, which originally aired on HBO on December 8, 2007.

ABC eyeing Aisha...for a talk show, sicko

by Danny Gallagher, posted May 12th 2009 11:03AM
comedian Aisha TylerComedy talk shows are a vastly underrated wasteland of quality programming, but they're shorter on female eye-candy than the floor of the Consumer Electronics Show.

ABC is hoping to change that by giving comic babe and former Talk Soup slinger Aisha Tyler her own piece of programming.

The network is letting her develop a pilot for a "hybrid" style talk show that incorporates sketch, stand-up and other variety comedy into a fully "wired" show that will communicate with their audience over the Internet's series of complex tubes.
