Last night, Jason Segel paid a visit to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to finally come clean about how he tricked America into letting him make The Muppets, and to recount three separate occasions when he burst into tears uncontrollably: during the table read for The Muppets, on a first date, and on an airplane next to a very uncomfortable man.
Modern Family star Ty Burrell appeared on The Late Show to laugh about his placement in People Magazine's Sexiest Men issue.

Finally, The Middle star Atticus Schaffer stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to talk about alleged (and excitable) fans who don't know what show he is on. He also spoke about his massive sum of pets...which includes chickens.
Last night, Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 star Kristen Stewart visited Conan and talked about how different New York Twilight fans and crewmembers are from London Twilight fans/crewmembers and trying to convince her grandmother that The Twilight Saga is actually a pretty big deal. Then she had to endure Conan's trademark creepy come-ons.
In honor of his last day hosting Live! with Regis and Kelly, Regis Philbin was David Letterman's guest on The Late Show last night. Philbin recounted, and went into vivid, passionate detail about, the unexpected kiss that he and Letterman shared earlier this week on the Live! set, and then went for a ride on a Vespa. Sounds kind of like a weird dream, right?
Over on The Daily Show, the champ Martin Scorsese dropped by (on his birthday, no less!) to talk about his fascinating new movie Hugo, deciding finally to make a movie his young daughter can see—and getting great directing advice from her—and being an asthmatic recluse as a child.

Finally, another Breaking Dawn Part 1 star graced late night television: Peter Facinelli, who plays Carlisle Cullen in The Twilight Saga movies. Facinelli talked about being dubbed an item with costar Kellan Lutz, i.e. Pellan, thanks to their choice to hold hands coming off an airplane and an inadvertent 3 a.m. hug caught on camera.
Justin Bieber has been very vocal about what he thinks regarding Mariah Yeater and her decision to file a paternity suit against him that alleges he is the father of her four-month-old baby, Tristyn. Bieber's girlfriend Selena Gomez, however, has usually decided against expressing her opinion on the matter -- but today's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show is going to be a really big one because for the first time, the 19-year-old singer will comment on the ordeal that is plaguing her relationship.
In a clip from the interview, Ellen broaches the subject by saying "What a crazy last two weeks it's been in the news" and Selena humorously replies, "to say the least," and adds "It's not easy." Ellen then inquires as to Selena's well-being, and Selena responds affirmatively, yet cautiously, with "I have been, yeah." Based on the clip below, that appears to be the only time the paternity suit was mentioned but be sure and tune in to NBC at 4PM EST to see the conversation in its entirety.

Last night, Jerry Seinfeld graced the world with the standup talents that we miss so much, performing a routine on The Late Show. Seinfeld gave a very Seinfeldian take on everything revolving cell phones, and how they have completely changed society.
Snooki showed up on Conan to dub Conan a "Guido in-the-making," to talk about using cat litter as an exfoliate, and to debut her "Snookify Me" app, and to shower Conan in her new perfume.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 star Jackson Rathbone showed up on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to incite a surplus of high-pitched cheering, and to discuss living out a real-life version of The Hangover when he did fourteen shots of whiskey in a half an hour in order to win a shirt, woke up the next day in a rainy alleyway, and had no idea where his friend was.
Finally, back on Conan, Rob Riggle appeared to ask the military not to call him back into action, to recall a very "romantic" love letter he wrote to his wife while fighting in Afghanistan, to talk about being terrorized by a female "drugger" when he was a child, and to give us one of his patented "POW"s.
The semi finals of this season of Dancing with the Stars were last night, and tonight we learned which of the four remaining couples weren't going into the finals. The two pairs in danger of going home were Hope Solo (who was criticized last night for not matching any artistry with her aggression) and JR Martinez (who the judges disappointed with his reserved movements). But ultimately, Hope Solo was sent home, and she told Brooke Burke, ""This competition is one of the toughest competitions I've ever been a part of. Instead of trying to win a Mirror Ball Trophy, I'm going to try to win a gold medal this summer at the Olympics. Maks was amazing, the producer of the show! Thank you, Maks, for having me on your show." And in a surprisingly sweet moment, Maks thanked Hope for being his partner and apologized that he didn't get her further. This means the finalists for this season are Ricki Lake and Derek Hough, JR Martinez and Karina Smirnoff, and Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke. Tune in next week to watch one of them walk away with the Mirror Ball trophy!
In celebration of the upcoming The Muppets movie, Jimmy Kimmel welcomed a particularly unusual guest to Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night: Miss Piggy. The notoriously self-adoring performer was proud to donate her time to Jimmy, whom she stated (with regard to her appearance on the show) has "finally booked a real star."
Miss Piggy went on about the tedious work it is maintaining a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which is why she has chosen not to receive one, being in the "longest interspecies relationship in Hollywood" with Kermit the Frog, and how she'll watch anything with Real Housewives in the title.
When the interview continued, Miss Piggy discussed the difficulties of dining out as a pig, and not being a fan of Kermit's extended family. She also discussed working with Jason Segel and her opinions of her longtime companions: Fozzie, Gonzo, Animal, Statler & Waldorf and the Swedish chef.
Last night, Jason Segel appeared on The Late Show to discuss how his new movie The Muppets went over on the test audiences. Children loved the Muppets, but apparently had a hard time dealing with Segel's face.
Amy Adams showed up on The Tonight Show to recall stories about sleeping in a car with her six siblings, the not-so-graceful dancing of her Muppets costar Segel, and being asked to join the movie by Kermit the Frog himself.
Jane Lynch visited Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to discuss Glee and the politics of Sue Sylvester, to give her own take on the republican debates, and to talk about having participated in only three of the (as of tonight) three hundred songs on the show despite being the only actor on set who still enjoys singing.
Finally, Sarah Michelle Gellar stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to debate who is "good" and who is "evil" in her series Ringer, and to argue about the very political issue of bringing pillows onto airplanes.
The Love Actually star is engaged to wed Hannah Dodkin, who he began dating at the start of 2010.
But Marshall admits he wants a low-key ceremony after playing a groom earlier this year (11) in TV commercials for U.K. telecommunications firm BT.
He says, "Just filming the scene with the white tables and speeches made me feel ill. Even pretending to get married like that was awful.
"Fortunately my gorgeous fiancee feels exactly the same so we're going to do things very differently. We're not quite sure what but it won't be big."
The best thing about Modern Family is that, even though we often see the three households each enjoying their own adventures, they inevitably always come together to form the series' strongest moments, both in sentiment and in comedy. In the clip below, from next week's episode "After the Fire," we get to see all of the adults together, suffering a handful of different problems and sharing them with each other.
"After the Fire" surrounds the family's attempt to organize a community drive after a neighbor's house burns down. Of course, they are all far more absorbed by their own problems. As we can see below, Phil busts in, lamenting the loss of two of his realty firm's best brokers (and the beloved "tube dude"). Mitchell and Cam follow, bickering about the latter's "wardrobe crisis"—just in time to interrupt Gloria's not-quite-right impression of the inflatable dancing tube dude in question. Finally, Jay joins the scene, writhing in pain when his back goes out.
An excitable Phil, an uptight Mitchell, a flashy Cam, a confused Gloria and a grumpy Jay...yep, this is your classic Modern Family scene, and we're all on board with that.
Modern Family's episode "After the Fire" airs next Wednesday, Nov. 16 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
Last night, Governor Rick Perry attempted to recover from his pretty catastrophic mental breakdown at the Republican Debate the other day by delivering David Letterman's "Top Ten List" on The Late Show. The category: "Top Ten Rick Perry Excuses."
Robert Pattinson appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to lament how he's "not British enough" anymore—and how he plans to rectify this—and the not-entirely-successful event of imprinting his hands and feet in cement at the Grauman's Chinese Theater with Twilight costars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner.
Kristen Stewart paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live! to play a game where she guesses if black-clad visitors to Hollywood are there to see Breaking Dawn or the Megadeth concert. She also went into detail to explain what they had to cut out of her love scene with Robert Pattinson to keep from reaching an R-rating.
Finally, also on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Jon Bernthal, who plays Shane on The Walking Dead, spoke about being stuck next to a die-hard fan on a five-hour flight on the way to his son's birth. Apparently the fan made Bernthal give a behind-the-scenes commentary on the entire first season DVD of the series.
