When it comes to ranking the late night hosts, Conan O’Brien comes out on top, with Jimmy Fallon at the bottom. That is all based on if you count the amount of minutes they allow their celebrity guests to talk. TV experts told The Hollywood Reporter that Fallon spends 1/3 of the time he’s at his desk listening to his guests. Another third is spent playing silly games. Meanwhile, Conan spends about 15-minutes on his monologue, then another 30 minutes in conversation with his guests. Jimmy Kimmel, David Letterman and Seth Meyers spend just a little less than Conan with guests.

 

Jimmy Kimmel and wife Molly McNearney are proud parents to a new daughter. McNearney gave birth to baby Jane yesterday.

 

Britney Spears and her boyfriend David Lucado have been taking it slow by Britney’s usual standards. Reports from the National Enquirer states that Britney is finally sure that David is the ‘one’, and that she wants to marry him. Apparently, she’s determined to have a ‘proper’ wedding this time and the pair have already begun planning their nuptials, with a plan to get married around Thanksgiving. We will have to wait and see!

 

 

Glee's final season will be brief.

Also sad news for the cast: Matt Bendik, the 35-year-old boyfriend Becca Tobin was found dead in a Philadelphia hotel.

 

Rosie O’Donnell is reclaiming her seat at The View. Rumors of her return have been circulating all week, but the show made it official with an announcement on Twitter yesterday. O’Donnell was on The View in 2006 and 2007 before leaving the show, in part due to her frequent arguments with then co-host Elizabeth Hasselbeck.
