Despite the fact that she basically acted like the biggest a-hole ever on the set of Scary Movie 5 and now the producers hate her, I guess they figured that they might as well have Lindsay Lohan do the press rounds so that they can get the word out before critics tear the movie apart.

Conan O’Brien and David Letterman mock Jay Leno

Conan O'Brien and David Letterman

If you remember correctly, Jay Leno famously screwed over both Conan O'Brien and David Letterman by yanking the rug of The Tonight Show out from underneath them, despite the fact that he's easily a worse comedian than both of 'em. So when Conan went on The Late Show with David Letterman, you knew that eventually they would both start making fun of Jay, they did not disappoint.

Hello, Eva Longoria’s left nipple!

Eva Longoria and David Letterman

So Eva Longoria was on David Letterman last night to promote her new cookbook, and - No, really, she has a cookbook. I know, right? I didn't even know the bitch knew how to eat. Anyway, she showed up wearing a blazer, hot pants and absolutely nothing else, which of course means it was only before one of her ta-tas tried to jailbreak that shit. Not that I mind at all here; it's a nipple for Christ's sake, it's not like she pulled out a gun and MORE

James Franco wasn’t stoned during the Oscars!

James Franco

Continuing his national tour of pissing away all his goodwill, James Franco sat down with David Letterman to talk about his Oscar hosting performance, where he sucked it up and accepted responsibility for his energy-free performance.
