Sadly, former Tonight Show fixture Ed McMahon, who played second fiddle to Johnny Carson for 30 years, passed away earlier this week. We weren't sure we could pay tribute to such an icon of television, but luckily, Conan O'Brien did it for us, with a selection of his funniest Tonight Show moments, which you can see below.
Happy Monday, all! We're currently snowed in here at TWoP's Manhattan headquarters, even though it's March. LOL, end of the world, I guess! Anyway, if you're trying to forget about the impending apocalypse, read on for a nudie mature TV star, Shannen Doherty's ridiculous new gig, Alexis Bledel's sad new gig, and yes, even more Melissa George hatred. As Diddy used to say, "I thought I told you that we won't stop!"
Today's news may confirm the official takeover of reality TV, which is sad, but not as sad as Ed McMahon dying. It would be awkward to try to make any sort of joke now, so we'll just get straight to the news.
Good news, everybody! Weird news, but still! Really good! It looks like the bleak hell that has become Ed McMahon's life has suddenly become slightly less horrifying, thanks to... Donald Trump, of all people. Homeboy has agreed to buy McMahon's $4.6 million dollar mansion and let him live in it for free, saving it from foreclosure and McMahon from certain homelessness. Aww. Why would he do this, you ask? According to Trump, it's just because a long time ago he went to a fancy school none of us can afford/get into and don't you effing forget it, and while he was there he loved to watch what I can only assume was The Tonight Show. He told the L.A. Times, "When I was at the Wharton School of Business I'd watch him every night. How could this happen?"
