Late-night television has experienced seismic shifts recently. ABC moved Jimmy Kimmel to 11:35 p.m. Jimmy Fallon took over "The Tonight Show" from Jay Leno. And CBS announced that after David Letterman retires in 2015, Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert will host "The Late Show."
But one thing hasn't changed: Jon Stewart is still making people laugh at 11 p.m on Comedy Central.
Not only that, as a New York Times article pointed out, Stewart has become more than just a funny, brand-name host — his "Daily Show" has become perhaps a major incubator of comedy on television, rivaling the empire that Lorne Michaels has built at "Saturday Night Live."
Check out a "Who's Who" of "Daily Show" stars, past and present:

As Stefan Salvatore on "The Vampire Diaries," Paul Wesley has had to bite countless necks, engage in dozens of brawls, and even get locked up in a box. But in the April 17 episode, he faced a completely new challenge: stepping behind the camera!
Wesley makes his directorial debut with "Resident Evil," and Yahoo TV chatted with the star by phone about why he switched sides, as well his thoughts on a reunion between Stefan and Elena, and the growing fanbase for a Stefan/Caroline romance.
Plus, we asked a few questions posed by fans on Twitter.
What made you want to step behind the camera to direct? Being an actor is an incredibly gratifying, rewarding experience. But there are certain limitations, and I've been interested in the production aspect and filmmaking aspect, behind the cameras, ever since I wanted to become an actor. There are certain things that you wish you could control as an actor, and I was able to define some of those things. There's a great fulfillment there. That was something I aspired to do and attain. It was everything I thought it would be.
'Orphan Black' Star Jordan Gavaris Previews Season 2: Felix Will Have 'New Allegiances, New Enemies'Kelly Woo at Yahoo TV2 hrs ago
First rule of Clone Club: Bring in a Felix.
While the brilliant Tatiana Maslany is undoubtedly the star of BBC America's "Orphan Black," Jordan Gavaris stole quite a few scenes in Season 1 as fabulously snarky Felix Dawkins, the foster brother of central clone Sarah Manning. When the outrageous gay artist befriended uptight suburban mom Alison Hendrix, it was a match made in television heaven.
In Season 2, fans will get even more of Felix and Alison, Gavaris told Yahoo TV, as well as more interactions with other clones. Even better? Felix is getting a love interest!
Find out what else Gavaris had to tease about the highly-anticipated new season of "Orphan Black," which premieres April 19.

How is "Hannibal" playing in international markets? This Korean commercial for the NBC drama is very telling... and surprisingly hilarious. We all know Hannibal is dreamy, and the man can dress, but are they forgetting the fact that he's a serial killing cannibal?
Take a look at this trailer from Korea's AXN Network:
But what are they saying? And why are Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) and Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) so sparkly? We translated it so you don't have to guess.
After the announcer says that "Hannibal is rewriting the history of American dramas," he says that Mads Mikkelsen is getting a lot of interest and praise for his "great acting and sexy appeal."
Some of the comments shown as Hannibal is sparkling like an angel: "Love Mads Mikkelsen"; "His acting is the best"; "Gasp Gasp Mads Mikkelsen is so hot"; "The acting is better than the movie"; "No words to describe how hot he looks in the suit."
And then there's this:
In red it says: "He’s so sexy." Well, yeah, posing like that we guess he is.

If you believe the conventional wisdom surrounding "Community," last season was an unspeakable abomination. Without creator Dan Harmon at the helm, the NBC comedy flailed and sputtered its way to its worst season yet, a pale shadow of its former glory.
But miraculously, it somehow earned a fifth-season renewal, and even more miraculously, NBC brought Harmon back as showrunner. So his glorious return to the fold this season must have reinvigorated the series and made everything "cool cool cool" again, right?
Well, not exactly. In fact, if you take off your Harmon fanboy glasses and give this season's episodes a hard look, you won't see much of a bump in quality, if any, from the much-maligned Season 4. (Yep, you heard us.)

Sounds like Andy Cohen should have worn some armor instead of one of his suave suits for the reunion episode of "Real Housewives of Atlanta."
Porsha Williams was arrested after a fight broke out during the reunion episode of the Bravo reality series. Kenya Moore, who was allegedly attacked during the March 27 taping of the show, filed charges and Porsha was booked by the Fulton County Sheriff's Department on Wednesday.
According to the booking report obtained by "The Insider With Yahoo," the 5-foot-7 reality star is being charged with simple battery. She appeared glammed up when she turned herself in, wearing full makeup including bright reddish-pink lipstick in her mug shot photo. She was released on $2,000 bond.
So what the heck happened during the reunion special, which conveniently airs this Sunday night?

Poppy Montgomery Talks 'Unforgettable' TV Moments: Getting Murdered on 'Silk Stalkings,' Playing Marilyn Monroe in 'Blonde,' and MoreSuzy Byrne at Yahoo TV10 hrs ago
Poppy Montgomery's TV alter ego uses her special memory abilities to solve crimes, but the actress was a little fuzzy when we visited her on the Brooklyn set of "Unforgettable."
The newlywed recently relocated her family from Los Angeles to New York, where she's shooting Season 3 of the show, and her nearly 1-year-old daughter, Violet, has decided to remain on Pacific Standard Time. Sleeping issues aside, Montgomery is happy as clam herself to be back to work on her CBS drama, which is airing its second season now while they shoot Season 3, which will launch in June. The show, which was retooled over the summer, focuses on her character, Carrie Wells, using her special memory abilities to solve crimes, but it she also has a "Moonlighting"-esque banter with her partner/ex, Al Burns (played by Dylan Walsh).

We've got an exclusive sneak peek at "Orange Is the New Black's" new Season 2 trailer, and with less than two months left until the new season premieres (June 6 on Netflix), we're celebrating just as much as the inmates appear to be:
But as you can see, it's not all fun and games. After last season's shocking finale, Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) is seen being released from solitary with a whole new zen-psycho, "lone wolf" attitude:
Yikes. We also get more insight into newcomer Vee (Lorraine Toussaint), who told Yahoo TV about her past with Red (Kate Mulgrew)... and now it looks like she has an interesting future ahead with Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba):
She's smitten! And we've all seen what happens when Suzanne is smitten...
There's also another new inmate that we haven't heard much about — probably because she seems completely shell-shocked:

Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose — and won't stop.
It's been three years since "Friday Night Lights" went off the air, but the beloved series is still very much alive in the hearts of fans. For the third year in a row, the ATX Television Festival is bringing back the show's stars to Austin, Texas, where they made the "FNL" magic.
Adrianne Palicki, who played sassy Tyra Collette, told Yahoo TV she'll make her first appearance at this year's ATX TV Festival, taking place June 5-8. "Finally!" she laughed.
We chatted with the actress about the big reunion, fan encounters, and the possibility of a "Friday Night Lights" movie.
