Watch late night pay tearful tribute to the great Don Rickles

R.I.P. Don Rickles, King of the Insult Comics, Comedy Legend.

Don Rickles was sharp and merciless, and from what we hear from everyone in business, thoughtful and kind, especially to other comedians.

Jimmy Kimmel is openly emotional over Rickles’ death in his moving tribute.

Later, Adam Sandler and Kimmel remembered the classic comedian:

Stephen Colbert recalls how Rickles made him feel like a “made man.”

Seth Meyers recalls his brief encounter with Rickles:

Finally, here’s a trailer for an upcoming series from AARP, Dinner with Don, in which Don Rickles ribs some of the best comedians in the business including Amy Poehler, Zack Galifianakis, Sarah Silverman, Jimmy Kimmel, and Paul Rudd. It feels particularly special this morning.

The headline here suggests that The Walking Dead creators are “teasing” that Glenn will return possibly in a flashback, but let me just save you the time: Gimple says that it is “certainly possible” and “I’d be silly to say it isn’t.” So basically this is a non-story.

Here are a bunch of Seinfeld episode ideas that were never made which is a damn shame because they are GOLD.

The internet is THUMBS DOWN about Netflix’s ratings change.

Damon Lindelof is never returning to Twitter, but he is on Instagram, although it looks like he mostly only takes pictures of sinks?

Oh, Morocco Omari, no.
