Jeffrey R. Staab/CBS(NEW YORK) -- David Letterman's Late Show swan song brought in big ratings for CBS.

Wednesday night's broadcast of Late Show, which marked the end of Letterman's 33-year run on late-night TV, averaged 13.76 million viewers. It was the program's largest audience since February of 1994, when an episode of Late Show followed CBS coverage of the Winter Olympics.

The Letterman finale boosted the audience for The Late Late Show with James Corden, which averaged four million viewers, the program's biggest-ever audience with any host.

Stephen Colbert succeeds Letterman as Late Show host in September.

David Giesbrecht/NBC(NEW YORK) -- "Red Nose Day," a three-hour live event designed to raise money for charity organizations that focus on helping children and young people in the U.S. and around the world lift themselves out of poverty, aired Thursday night on NBC.

The star-studded lineup included actors Will Ferrell, Jack Black, Anna Kendrick, and Gwyneth Paltrow, as well as musicians like Coldplay, John Mellencamp, Keith Urban, Ed Sheeran, and U2.

Here are some of the evening's highlights:

  • There was a comedy montage called "Seth Meyers' Celebrity Phone Tree," in which Meyers started a phone tree featuring a myriad of film stars to spread the word about "Red Nose Day" to their friends. The message gets more jumbled with each subsequent call, until, finally, Reese Witherspoon calls Seth to ask him if he'll agree to take part in a charity called "The Day They Stopped Making Rosé."
  • In a parody of The Voice, Ferrell faced off against Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman to prove who is the best at convincing people to donate. To Ferrell's disgust, Voice coach Adam Levine declares the battle a tie, to which Ferrell responds, "That's not the way winning works, Levine. There's no such thing as two winners."
  • In a segment of "Billy on the Street," comedian Billy Eichner and Martin Short approached random New Yorkers on the street asking for "Red Nose Day" donations. The two manage to collect some money, but are outraged to learn that people either haven't heard of Short or don't believe it's really him.
  • Jane Krakowski, noting the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot featuring an all-female cast, presented a comedy segment featuring several films that once starred men, re-imagined with women. Among them:Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, starring Anna Kendrick, in search of the Holy Grail as a decoration for her house.
  • Coldplay's Game of Thrones parody featured the show's cast taking part in a musical production of the show, written by the band's frontman, Chris Martin. Though he had high hopes for the production, it ends in failure when, according to the sketch, Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin won't give his consent to turn the books into a play.

The evening also included musical performances from U2, who performed "Song for Someone." Ed Sheeran teamed up with Kermit the Frog for "The Rainbow Connection," from The Muppet Movie. Mellencamp and Urban joined forces for Mellencamp's "Pink Houses."

David Welker/TLC(NEW YORK) -- Josh Duggar is responding to recent reports that he inappropriately touched minors several years ago, saying he "would do anything to go back to those teen years and take different actions."

In Touch magazine was the first to report that Josh Duggar was investigated in 2006 for alleged misconduct starting when he was 14 years old.

A representative for TLC, the network behind the Duggars' show 19 Kids and Counting, referred a request by ABC News for comment to the Duggars' personal representative. That person did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

In a statement first provided to People magazine and then posted to Facebook, Josh admitted, "Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. ...I sought forgiveness from those I had wronged."

Josh, now 27 but 14 at the time of the first alleged incident, admitted he told his father of his actions.

"I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life," he said.

People magazine added that Josh has now resigned from his position at the Family Research Council.

Josh's parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, added, "When Josh was a young teenager, he made some very bad mistakes, and we were shocked. We had tried to teach him right from wrong. That dark and difficult time caused us to seek God like never before. ...We pray that as people watch our lives they see that we are not a perfect family. We have challenges and struggles every day."

Josh's wife, Anna, 26, has also released a statement to People, saying she knew about Josh's actions before they were married, adding that he received counseling after the incidents, which "changed his life."

"I can imagine the shock many of you are going through reading this. I remember feeling that same shock," she told the magazine. "When my family and I first visited the Duggar home, Josh shared his past teenage mistakes."

Anna added that she was surprised by Josh's "openness and humility" in admitting this.

Warner Bros.(NEW YORK) -- Matthew Lewis, the actor who played Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter series, is all grown up.

The one-time child actor recently showed off his toned physique on the cover of Attitude, the U.K.'s gay lifestyle magazine. And inside the magazine, there are pics where he's just wearing underwear and not much else.

Lewis' new look is getting tons of reaction online, including from Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling. The writer tweeted: "@Mattdavelewis Not as bad as watching Dan in Equus, but close. Warn me next time, for God's sake."

The acclaimed author was referring to the time Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, was naked in a play.

The best part is Lewis' response: "Well, this is awkward. Sorry, Jo ..." he tweeted.

In the end, Rowling responded in support. "@Mattdavelewis I will always support you whatever you want to do, Matthew. Now go put some clothes on," she wrote.

Lewis, now 25, started in the Potter series back in 2001, when he wasn't even a teenager yet. He will next be seen in Me Before You, a film adaptation of Jojo Moyes' book of the same name in which a woman finds herself taking care of a recently paralyzed man. The film is set for release June 3, 2016.

ABC/Randy Holmes(LONDON) -- He may have walked down the aisle, something many fans thought he'd never do, but George Clooney is still the same guy who loves a good prank. 

"I'm doing one now that I can't tell you about, but in a year you are going to hear I've been arrested -- I'm not kidding, because I think I've crossed the line," he tells BBC host Graham Norton on Friday's The Graham Norton Show.

The Tomorrowland star adds, "But I have a wife; she's a barrister. I'll be fine!"

George and Amal Clooney, who is a human rights lawyer, married in Italy last September. 

George is notorious for pranking Hollywood. Just last year, he pranked Amy Poehler and Tina Fey after they made fun of him at the Golden Globes as hosts. Clooney told Good Morning America that he struck back by sending them a fake letter written on stationary bearing his friend Matt Damon's name.

The note said that Damon was really upset over a joke they told on stage at the awards show. A few days later, Damon -- who knew nothing about the prank -- received two fruit baskets from the ladies, with two notes attached. One note apologized, while the other, Clooney said, read, "This is a prank from George Clooney and tell him we're grown-a** comedians. And you better step your game up!"

Frank Ockenfels/AMC(NEW YORK) -- Much has been made of the Mad Men series finale that aired Sunday night.

However, the show's creator, Matthew Weiner, laid rumors to rest Wednesday night during a discussion with author A.M. Homes at the New York Public Library. 

"In the abstract, I did think, why not end this show with the greatest commercial ever made?" he said, in a video posted by The Hollywood Reporter. "In terms of what it means to people and everything, I am, again, not for ambiguity for ambiguity's sake, but it was nice to have your cake and eat it too, in terms of what is advertising, who is Don and what is that thing?"

In the last few moments of the AMC show, Don Draper, played by Jon Hamm, is at a commune in northern California, trying to understand who he is. After connecting with another lonely man, he realizes what he's meant to do and seemingly creates the iconic "I'd Like to Buy the World a Coke" commercial. 

"I hope that the audience would feel that he was embracing a part of himself or maybe them," Weiner said of the emotional moment. "That they were heard."

"I did hear rumblings of people talking about the ad being corny and it's a little bit disturbing to me," he added. "Five years before that, black people and white people couldn't even be in an ad together, OK? And the idea that someone in an enlightened state and not just co-option might have created something that is very pure — and yeah, there's soda in there with a good feeling, but that ad to me, it's the best ad ever made, and it comes from a very good place."

Weiner said that he knew at the end of season four how he wanted Don's story to end, and he also knew at that point that Betty was going to die. However, Peggy's relationship with Stan was less obvious to him, as was Joan's newfound career ambitions. 

"I didn't even know Joan was a main character until I met Christina Hendricks!" he said. "I definitely didn't think Joan would end up this single-mom feminist, looking for childcare on her own....I love the fact that it's not philosophical for her. I'm not demeaning the philosophy of feminism, I'm just saying this woman made a practical decision not to take any s*** anymore....She biologically loves work."

"Poltergeist" - Fox(NEW YORK) — A few months back, a Poltergeist cast member described the movie to me as a “family adventure film.”  That hardly sounded appealing. Now that I’ve seen the movie, I know what the actor meant. It is a family adventure film, kind of, though not a particularly good one.  But more telling: it’s Poltergeist.  It should be a horror film.
 
The original Poltergeist from 1982 is a classic. It’s an incredibly creepy film without being graphic or bloody — a good old-fashioned horror thriller and very much a product of its era.  This new Poltergeist, however, is a product of a tired Hollywood formula:  a remake that lacks creativity, hoping to trade on an established brand.
 
This time, instead of the Freeling family, we have the Bowen family. Sam Rockwell, simply one of the best film actors on the planet, is father Eric Bowen — out of work but level-headed, funny and extremely likeable.  Rosemarie DeWitt plays his wife, Amy, a writer who isn’t writing. Due to their tight money situation, they’re forced to move into a new house in a subpar neighborhood.
 
That house is haunted by restless spirits who are unhappy because the house — the whole neighborhood, in fact -- is built on top of the cemetery in which they’re buried. The spirits express their displeasure by attacking the Bowens’ son with a toy clown, trying to pull their teenage daughter through the garage floor, and kidnapping the Bowens’ youngest daughter.
 
With such a talented cast, it’s completely confounding how this movie is so low on emotional impact. Their daughter has been kidnapped by a poltergeist, yet mom and dad seem about as concerned as if they’d misplaced the TV remote. Furthermore, this is supposed to be a family with very little money, and yet their house has a nice HD TV in every room, and everybody apparently has a computer, an iPhone or an iPad.
 
If you scare easily, you’ll probably find at least parts of Poltergeist a bit creepy. But if you’re a real fan of the genre, and of the original Poltergeist, you’ll be extremely disappointed.
 
Two out of five stars.

ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) -- Britt Nilsson may have been sent home this week on The Bachelorette, but that doesn't mean she hasn't found love.

During the rose ceremony, an unexpected twist occurred when Brady Toops admitted to the remaining "bachelorette" Kaitlyn Bristowe that his heart belonged to Nilsson, and that he was removing himself from the competition. 

And on Thursday's Good Morning America, Nilsson hinted that the move scored Toops some points.

"Brady is an amazing person and...Yeah, I cannot give anything away but he does come find me which is a really, really sweet and honorable move, I think," she said.

US Weekly claims the two are now in a relationship. A source told the magazine, "Brady and Britt are still together. They’re very happy."

The Bachelorette, with Bristowe looking for love, returns Monday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.

Timothy White/E! (LOS ANGELES) -- Kim Kardshian encouraged her youngest sister, Kylie Jenner to admit she had temporary lip fillers after previously denying that she'd undergone the procedure. The reality star said the implants helped the 17-year-old tremendously.

"I saw how for so many years she was so insecure about [her lips,]" Kim told Access Hollywood. "I mean, at 10 years old, she would say to me, 'How come my lips aren’t big like you guys?'

"I gave her the advice and I still stand by that advice," Kim said of encouraging her sister to come forward and admit she had work done.

The reality star said the implants "changed her confidence so much."

Kylie, along with her older sister Kendall Jenner, 19, grew up on the reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Kim said she doesn't worry about them because they understand life outside of Hollywood.

"I think that is just their reality," Kim explained. "But they know when things are normal. They know that all their friends aren't going on private jets. They know that they are growing up with a life of privilege, but they are super grounded and responsible."

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) -- Jennifer Garner and her husband Ben Affleck may be A-list celebrities, but that doesn't mean their kids get special treatment. Garner, a mother of three, says she works very hard to keep her kids grounded. 

"We’re so involved," she tells US Weekly. "I just took a year and a half off of work and I’ve been home. You treat them like real kids. They have boundaries and they have rules and they throw fits."

Such as? "Yesterday, we were at a bike store getting their bikes serviced and getting new helmets that fit and...my littlest one [3-year-old Samuel] saw something he wanted," Garner says. "I had just said, 'We’re not buying anything,' and he threw a fit.  The people at the store said to me, 'Please let us just give this to you' because he was so unhappy. And I said, 'I’m sorry that he’s throwing a fit in your store and you’re so sweet to want to give this to him. And thank you for asking me first. But he’s going to have to throw a fit.' I said no. No is no."

Garner and Affleck, who wed in 2005, are also parents to Violet, 9, and Seraphina, 6.

Garner said her children understand she's pretty strict.  "I said to my girls, 'What do I mean when I say no?'" Garner said. "And they were like, 'She really means no!' So you just have to do it. It’s not pretty. I don’t think that I’m always the best at it but I try my best to be consistent and for them to know what they can expect from me."

Warner Bros.(ORLANDO) -- Dwayne Johnson plays a Los Angeles Fire Department rescue helicopter pilot searching for his estranged daughter after an earthquake hits California in his latest action flick, San Andreas

"It's big. It's epic. It's relentless. It's non-stop. It's a ride that's non-stop," the former wrestler said of the film on Thursday's Live with Kelly and Michael.

Several key scenes in San Andreas take place underwater, something Johnson said was a challenge to film.  

"We built to scale the top of these high rises that are in downtown San Francisco. So when downtown San Francisco -- without giving the movie away -- gets hit with a tsunami, it gets submerged," he explained. "And in this massive water tank, the size of a football field...we had to shoot these scenes underwater for weeks and weeks [with] four or five hundred members of the crew. It was pretty intense."

Johnson said filming those particular scenes required specialized training. "I spent a lot of time just in terms of the prep because being a first responder, I had to be down there," he said. "The scenes were long and I have to save my daughter who's drowning, and it required me to swim through these office buildings."

San Andreas, also starring Paul Giamatti and Kylie Minogue, shakes up theaters May 29.

Jeffrey R. Staab/CBS(NEW YORK) -- David Letterman said goodbye to late-night TV and hello to retirement on Wednesday night, when his final episode of Late Show aired on CBS.

It was a star-studded finale for Letterman, who welcomed 10 favorite guests for one last Top Ten List: Bill Murray, Tina Fey, Peyton Manning, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Chris Rock, Jim Carrey, Jerry Seinfeld, Steve Martin, Barbara Walters and Alec Baldwin.

The topic was "Top Ten Things I've Always Wanted to Say to Dave." Murray read the #1 item on the list: "Dave, I'll never have the money I owe you."

Here's the complete list: 

10. Alec Baldwin: "Of all the talk shows, yours was the most geographically convenient to my home."
9. Barbara Walters: "Did you know you wear the same cologne as Moammar Gadhafi?"
8. Steve Martin: "Your extensive plastic surgery was a necessity and a mistake."
7. Jerry Seinfeld: "I have no idea what I'll do when you go off the air. You know, I just thought of something. I'll be fine."
6. Jim Carrey: "Honestly, Dave, I've always found you to be a bit of an over-actor."
5. Chris Rock: "I'm just glad your show is being given to a white guy."
4. Julia Louis-Dreyfus: "Thanks for letting me take part in another hugely disappointing series finale."
3. Peyton Manning: "You are to comedy what I am to...comedy."
2. Tina Fey: "Thanks for finally proving men can be funny."
1. Bill Murray: "Dave, I'll never have the money I owe you."

The episode began with a taped introduction in which President Gerald Ford's famous declaration following President Richard Nixon's resignation, "Our long national nightmare is over," was repeated byPresident Barack Obama and former Presidents George Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.

Obama added, "Letterman is retiring." Letterman then joined Obama and asked, "You're just kidding, right?"

Letterman's farewell, which extended beyond the Late Show's usual one-hour time slot, also featured a short animated bit from The Simpsons, clips of the host's most memorable sketches, and a behind-the-scenes look at Letterman at work.

In a poignant moment, Letterman, 68, thanked his wife Regina and their son Harry, who were in the audience. He remarked, "Seriously, just thank you for being my family. I love you both and, really, nothing else matters, does it?"

He also thanked Paul Shaffer and the members of the CBS Orchestra; various Late Show staffers; and the viewers at home.

Letterman acknowledged his successor, Stephen Colbert, during the broadcast, saying, "I'm very excited. I think he's going to do a wonderful job and I wish Stephen and his staff and crew nothing but the greatest success."

Foo Fighters closed the show with a performance of one of their biggest hits, "Everlong" -- a song the band previously performed on Late Show when Letterman returned following heart surgery in 2000. The performance was accompanied by highlights of Letterman's 33 years in late night.

In introducing the Foo Fighters, Letterman said, "The only thing I have left to do, for the last time on a television program, thank you and good night."

After a failed experiment in morning TV, Letterman launched his late-night TV career with NBC's Late Night in 1982. Letterman moved on to CBS and Late Show after losing out on The Tonight Show hosting gig to Jay Leno in the wake of Johnny Carson's retirement a decade later.

Letterman experienced a few bumps during his Late Show run. As previously mentioned, he missed time in 2000 after undergoing heart surgery. Upon his return, he brought onto the show many of the doctors and nurses who treated him.

He also missed a month in 2003 due to a bout with shingles.

In 2009, Letterman shocked viewers by admitting he’d had affairs with staff members that led to him being the target of an extortion plot by a CBS producer.

Letterman hosted more than six thousand broadcasts on late-night TV, including more than 42 hundred on CBS.

Following Letterman's finale, The Late Late Show host James Corden saluted him both in his monologue and in a taped segment in which he and Sting performed "Every Breath You Take" in front of the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City, where Letterman taped his program.

Screen Grab/CBS ©2015 CBS Broadcasting, Inc.(LOS ANGELES) -- Mike Holloway, a 38-year-old oil driller from Texas, outwitted, outplayed, and outlasted the competition to emerge victorious in Wednesday night's finale of Survivor: Worlds Apart.

The former member of the Blue Collar tribe won a stunning five personal immunity challenges in a row, which helped him stave off the final dreaded torch snuffing of the 30th installment of the reality series. 

The episode began with a the final five -- Mike, Sierra, Rodney, Will, and Carolyn -- facing an obstacle course in which tiles were gathered, balanced, and sorted to reveal the combination to an oversized lock.

With a visit from family members and an advantage in the immunity challenge at stake, Mike dominated early, but despite a late charge from Sierra, he emerged with the win. 

The win earned Mike a camp sleepover with his mom Debra. The advantage Mike won -- his mom guiding him blindfolded through a dry run of the immunity challenge maze -- didn't help the player while they practiced: she couldn't find their way out. 

However, during the actual challenge, even with the other four blindfolded players working together against him, Mike found all the required totems and completed the challenge to win immunity and a spot in the final four.

During the night's first tribal Council Sierra was voted off.

The second immunity challenge had the remaining four players run up a pyramid-steep staircase to grab keys for bags of puzzle pieces, slide down a water slide, and unlock pieces for a three-dimensional lighthouse puzzle they had to build.

Again, Mike won, snagging his 5th individual immunity. In the end, however, there were no hard feelings: the remaining 3, Rodney, Will, and Carolyn, helped put on his necklace, recognizing the accomplishment they'd gone through to get to Survivor's final stage.

A marathon fire challenge to determined the final three played out between Rodney and Carolyn, with the former storming off in defeat, leaving "Mama C," Will, and Mike to plead their case before the tribal jury. In the end, Mike won handily.

The reunion portion of the finale also saw Dan and Will apologize to Shirin and for derogatory comments they made during the show, and the reveal of 20 fan-chosen former Survivor castaways who will get their another shot at their own win during next fall's Survivor: Cambodia - Second Chance.

After the names of the ten men and ten women were announced, the players were whisked away from the studio to board a bus bound for their next shot at reality show fame.

Warner Bros.(LOS ANGELES) -- Fans of HBO's hit series Entourage are used to celebrity cameos. But in the big-screen adaptation, moviegoers can expect over 50 spottings. Creator Doug Ellin explained why so many celebs pop up in the film.

"I remember when people said that the TV show had too many cameos," Ellin told The Hollywood Reporter. "But that's the reality of life in Hollywood. You get on a plane in L.A., and there's three celebrities sitting in first class."

While many cameos in the film were planned, such as Warren Buffett, Bob Saget, Gary Busey and Andrew Dice Clay, who did cameos on the TV series, others happened coincidentally. For instance, Common makes an appearance in the film because he just so happened to be working out at the same gym where the film was scheduled to shoot.

"It was very free-flowing," Ellin explained. "If someone could show up on Tuesday, I'd say, 'All right, I'll figure out how to get them in.'"

Other cameos came together last-minute, such as Kelsey Grammer's. In the film, he walks by in a scene when Ari Gold is just leaving his marriage counselor. According to the magazine, Grammer, who famously has been married four times, tells Gold, played by Jeremy Piven, "Don't waste your money."

A huge party at Turtle's mansion in the film provides the most celebrity cameos. In that scene alone, fans will spot Pharrell Williams, Ed O'Neill and even professional football player Russell Wilson, among others.

Still, there's one well-known figure that Ellin couldn't wrangle into his film -- President Barack Obama, who is reportedly a fan of the series.
