Julianna Margulies: 'Good Wife' Premiere Sex Scene Too Hot for Hubby (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 2nd 2011 4:55AM
Julianna Margulies, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Julianna Margulies certainly got David Letterman's attention when she started talking about the season premiere of 'The Good Wife' on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS). It was her use of the word 'steamy' twice in describing one scene in particular.

"I'm inclined to believe you that it's steamy," he said. "I guess I don't know what steamy is. Nudity?"

"Semi-nudity," she said. "You can't do full frontal nudity."

But Letterman tried to get out of her just how much we were going to see, and all Margulies would confirm was a lot of thigh. She did say, though, that it's the first time she's been a little concerned about her husband watching her on television.

Samuel L. Jackson Chats About Golfing with Donald Trump and Bill Clinton on 'The Late Show' (VIDEO)

samuel l jackson david lettermanSamuel L. Jackson and Donald Trump are golfing buddies? Who knew?

The Marvel movie staple dropped by 'The Late Show With David Letterman' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) to chat about a star-studded golf game that Trump invited him to play in.

Trump asked Jackson to join a game with a few friends, and one of those friends just happened to be Bill Clinton. Which brings me to my next question: Bill Clinton and Donald Trump are golfing buddies?

Perhaps golf is a more important sport than we thought it was. Maybe, one day, golf will be the one interest that all men will have in common.

While Jackson himself isn't a pro at the sport, he says Clinton isn't exactly gonna be seen wearing a green Masters jacket anytime soon either.

Madonna's Memorable TV Moments

by David Ciminelli, posted Apr 19th 2010 7:00PM
Madonna Believe it or not, the feel-good primetime hit 'Glee' is about to get even better ... and it's all thanks to Madonna.

The Golden Globe-winning series returns to Fox on April 13 with a tribute to the music icon, featuring the cast covering what's sure to be show-stopping renditions of some of Madge's greatest hits, including the '80s-defining 'Borderline,' an acoustic version of power-ballad 'Crazy for You' and the more recent '4 Minutes.' Even Sue Sylvester gets into the groove, coaching the Cheerios through an energetic performance of 'Express Yourself' and taking lead on 'Vogue.'

"It's big...huge," 'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy recently told Entertainment Weekly about the episode, which he's directing, yet he won't reveal whether or not Madonna will be making a cameo. What we do know is that the special episode will feature grander productions and at least 10 hits. We wouldn't expect anything less.

Madonna's decision to lend 'Glee' her entire catalog stems from the fact that she's a fan of the spunky song-and-dance show. Of course, the timing is also perfect for the master self-promoter, who is releasing a live DVD-CD of her Sticky & Sweet Tour on March 30, followed by the concert's April 2 TV premiere on VH1.

We're pretty sure that the 'Glee' and VH1 specials, as well as Madge's March guest stint on Jerry Seinfeld's new show, 'The Marriage Ref,' will eventually find a place in our ever-expanding compilation of Madonna's Memorable TV Moments.

Letterman Tops Leno ... For Good or For Now?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 10th 2010 9:00PM
Jay Leno, Oprah Winfrey and David LettermanDoes NBC have something to worry about now that Leno is back in the 'Tonight Show' chair or is this just a case of settling the new guy in ... uh, again?

Dave Letterman's 'Late Show'
scored a 1.3 in the demo ratings while Jay Leno's 'Tonight Show' scored a 1.1 on Monday.

What's to blame? It's the lead-in's fault. CBS had the highest prime time lead-in while NBC finished a distant fourth or as Conan O'Brien would call it, "payback."

Can Leno pull things around or is this a sign of things to come?

Letterman Show Hires a Female Writer

by Brad Trechak, posted Feb 4th 2010 12:02PM
Oprah and DaveWhen it comes to television comedy, female writers are like diamonds. That is to say they are hard to find and tough enough to crack pavement when properly used. That being said, girl power has given late night television a kick in the crotch with the hiring of Jill Goodwin, who will now be on the writing staff of the 'Late Show with David Letterman.'

Goodwin has been involved with the show since 2001. She got the job the old fashioned way, by rising through the ranks. More power to her. It makes a person wonder when one of the networks will take a chance a have a female-hosted late night talk show. Females seem to dominate the daytime shows (see Oprah), but not at night. The last that I can recall was Joan Rivers way back when.

Given the recent allegations against Dave with regards to his recently admitted affair, it does raise eyebrows with regards to the timing. On the other hand, it's not like she was hired the next day and a lot has happened on late night television since then.

Letterman's Attack on Leno and NBC Continues (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Jan 22nd 2010 11:00AM
David Letterman just can't help himself. The 'Late Show' host continued to gleefully bash Jay Leno and NBC over the network's late-night mess, mocking Leno's statement from earlier in the week that the scheduling upheaval wasn't his fault, and pledging to continue criticizing NBC in lieu of Conan O'Brien who will be legally forbidden to do so.

"Four days of rain in Los Angeles, and there's been a lot of flooding ... and when it floods like that they get the mudslides. It's been such a problem ... that, earlier today, Jay Leno held a press conference to announce that it wasn't his fault," Letterman quipped.

David Letterman Continues Assault on Jay Leno and NBC (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Jan 21st 2010 12:00PM
David Letterman continued his relentless assault of Jay Leno and NBC last night during the opening monologue of 'The Late Show,' joking that Conan O'Brien has received a raw deal from the network and underscoring the notion that Leno is being opportunistic over O'Brien's plight.

"Conan O'Brien, he had 'The Tonight Show' and now he's leaving, and NBC is negotiating with him and it's that intellectual property," Letterman said. "He can't take his signature comedy bits with him. But that's okay, Jay will take them."

Letterman finally weighs in on the battle between Conan and "Vintage Jay"

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 20th 2010 11:30AM
One man who has been suspiciously quiet about the never-ending battle over NBC's late night lineup is David Letterman. Sure he's mentioned it here and there in a monologue joke or a fake commercial, but he hasn't really let loose with the kind of spittle flying tirade that makes television worth watching.

Last night, the levee finally broke and Letterman's true feelings flowed out of him like a fine, smooth wine in a box with a wide mouth spout. No one was safe, not even Late Night host Lonnie Donnegan.

In honor of the 20th anniversary of 'The Simpsons,' Homer Simpson appeared on 'The Late Show with David Letterman' and presented a list of the top 10 things he's learned after 20 years in the business.

In addition to such lessons that purchasing sushi from the Home Shopping Network is unwise, and that, sadly, 'Cougar Town' is not a show about people getting attacked by giant cats, Homer has learned the most crucial lesson about television of all -- it's not a vast wasteland as some critics say; it is, in fact, "a cesspool."
