WWE Tribute to the Troops is considered the most patriotic show on television. In the grand tradition of Bob Hope, WWE has been entertaining American military personnel both overseas and in the U.S. for more than a decade. In recognition of these efforts, WWE received the first-ever Legacy of Hope Award, named after Bob Hope, in 2004. This year, the holiday tradition will be hosted by “Access Hollywood’s” Michelle Beadle and will include special messages from some of the biggest names in Hollywood, such as Will Ferrell, Bruce Willis, Ryan Seacrest, Christina Applegate and Stephen Colbert.

Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon Let Loose to Benefit Montclair Film Festival

Two lions of late night TV — Emmy and Peabody Award winner Stephen Colbert and Emmy and Grammy Award winner Jimmy Fallon — sang, joked, improvised and answered questions for about two hours at a fundraiser for the 2014 Montclair Film Festival last night. Some 2,600 fans filled the plush NJ Performing Arts Center on a frigid Sunday evening.The fun and freewheeling event kicked off with a 20-minute montage of Colbert and Fallon bits that aired on their shows — including their “Sugar Cone of Love” and “Somewhere Out There” duets.

Seated onstage in two leather chairs, Colbert asked Fallon questions about his comic influences, the Smothers Brothers and Rodney Dangerfield (“one of the greatest comedians of all time”), the hardest part of his day (“when you don’t have any bits”) and taking over the Tonight Show (Jay Leno advised him his monologues should be about 10 minutes because some people will only get their news from you). The two were playful with the audience (a woman who complained of bad seats on Twitter was called down to the stage) and each other, with Colbert saying of Fallon’s move to the Tonight Show “I feel zero competition from you. I’m not worried about ratings, I’m on basic cable.”
