David Letterman made like Joan Rivers last night.

No, he didn't refer to Barack Obama as gay and Michelle Obama as transgender.

But The Late Show host did get up in the middle of an interview with Joan Rivers, just a couple of days after Rivers did the same thing about getting annoyed during a chat with CNN.

Letterman was merely kidding, however, while Rivers went along with it and even tossed a few questions at herself.

Pretty funny stuff. Watch now:

Letterman will soon cede his Late Show post to Stephen Colbert.

Nia Sanchez was crowned Miss USA 2014 over the weekend.

But the 24-year old Las Vegas resident was handed a true honor last night, presenting the Top Ten list on The Late Show with David Letterman.

What are some of the most comment Miss USA Pageant Mistakes, according to that program's writers?

HINT: they involve hoof injuries, gang activities and Vladimir Putin.

Sanchez, meanwhile, wasn't the only Miss USA contestant to earn headlines this week.

A couple A-listers demonstrated the art of the apology this week.

First, Justin Bieber was caught on tape telling a racist joke (when he was 15 years old) - but the singer quickly released a lengthy, heartfelt apology, dismissing his latest scandal far more easily than other recent slip-ups.

Jonah Hill then used an anti-gay insult to slam a cameraman, yet he also jumped on the issue and admitted his word choice was disgusting.

How do these mea culpas compare to past instances of regret exhibited by actors, artists and athletes?

Click through some of the more memorable ones from recent history now:

Kobe Bryant
Kobe Bryant immediately addressed sexual assault charges in 2003. Seated alongside wife Vanessa, he tearfully said he was guilty of adultery, not rape.

Between Channing Tatum's admission of alcoholism and a never-ending stream of glassy-eyed Lindsay Lohan party photos emerging from the actress' time in London, we thought it would be a good time to run down a list of celebs who have struggled with excessive drinking.

Some of the stars on this list consider themselves alcoholics, but have sobered up and now speak openly about their years of heavy boozing as a cautionary tale.

Others are still hitting the bottle and thus tend to be more secretive about their imbibing ... well except LiLo. Who else falls into each category? Let's take a look.

Demi Lovato
Demi Lovato held little back at the 2012 People's Choice Awards. Including her cleavage. Comment on her dress now.

Hollywood and hooch have a long history together, dating back to Humphrey Bogart sipping real bourbon while shooting barroom scenes, reportedly never seeming to mind if he had to do 15 takes. 

But as times have changed, so have American attitudes toward excessive drinking.

We now know that for every amusing anecdote about a sloshed celeb stumbling down the red carpet, there's a far more grim story such as Derek Whibley's near-death experience.

Stopping by The Late Show With David Letterman on Thursday, James Franco was asked to explain his strange, sometimes provocative Instagram photos.

Yes, David Letterman asked about a topical celebrity subject!

"To me, it's just a fun thing. It's something I don't put a ton of thought into," Franco said. "But it gets a lot of attention. I have a lot of followers on Instagram."

Letterman then showed CBS viewers who aren't among his two million (!) followers one of the infamous, self-posted photos of James Franco nude.

"It's not like I'm, like, putting that on billboards," he said of that and other James Franco selfies, which he defended as just giving the people what they want..

"Ostensibly, Instagram is for my fans. But, you know, now all the bloggers are following me on there, so they just take and use my images for whatever they want."

"I didn't ask you to look at it," he joked to Letterman. "It's what the people want. If you don't want to see it, don't follow me. Don't follow me on Instagram!"

The present met the future on The Late Show last night.

Stephen Colbert appeared as a guest on the program for the first time since CBS announced he'd be taking over for David Letterman some time in 2015.

After Letterman joked in his monologue that the Comedy Central star was just stopping by to “sign the lease,” he told Colbert that he’s “thrilled” over his selection as a replacement.

"They could have just as easily hired another boob like me," Dave said. "But they didn't.

They hired a boob like me," Colbert responded. "Every boob is like a snowflake, Dave. We're all unique in our own way."

CBS has confirmed that Comedy Central staple Stephen Colbert will replace the retiring David Letterman as host of The Late Show sometime in 2015.

The host, writer and executive producer of The Colbert Report will take over for Letterman when he retires from the broadcast at some point next year.

  • Colbert Report Picture
  • Late Show Host

A five-year deal between CBS and Colbert was announced by Leslie Moonves, CBS President & CEO, and Nina Tassler, Chairman of CBS Entertainment.

Letterman announced his retirement April 3. The legendary comedian and critically acclaimed host of The Late Show has hosted the series for 21 years.

Colbert’s premiere date is unknown, but it will obviously occur after Letterman determines a timetable for his final farewell tour broadcasts in 2015.

CBS added that specific creative elements, as well as the producers and the location for the Colbert-hosted Late Show, are still to be determined and announced.

Not like there's a rush, given that this is a year away if not more. It's a small wonder the network announced this so quickly and didn't let the buzz build. Oh well.

Colbert replacing Letterman: Good choice? Vote!

You can take her name out of the running now, folks.

With David Letterman announcing his retirement this week, chatter quickly turned to the potential replacements for the CBS legend.

Would Ellen DeGeneres consider the gig?

Thanks but no thanks, the daytime star said yesterday, saying she's very happy with her current job and then hilariously showing how nighttime talk show monologues are very different from the types in which she specializes.

Lindsay Lohan and David Letterman prank called his (their?) longtime quasi-nemesis Oprah during a taping of this evening's episode of The Late Show.

It was funny stuff, as Letterman pretended to be Lohan’s “secretary” as he called up Oprah from his desk, leading to some confusion on Winfrey's end.

Then things got emotional after Dave revealed his true identity and asked O how the troubled actress and Lindsay docu-series star is really doing lately ...

“I think she’s doing really OK," Oprah told David Letterman.

"I think to have cameras following you around for every phase of your life, and you’re trying to pull your life together, I think that’s a really difficult thing."

Hearing the supportive words, LiLo teared up ... and sounded like an 85-year-old chain smoker, but that's beside the point (and nothing new at this point).

We're glad to hear Winfrey still has faith in her. For now.

Not all celebrities get along like peanut butter and jelly, milk and cookies, Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez.

Over the past few years, feuds have broken out in Hollywood over mental health issues; late night talk show skits; and Kim Kardashian sex tape parodies.

Who won each of these rivalries? The public, really. They were darn entertaining!

Click around below to relive the back-and-forth between Kathy and Dami, David and Bristol, Kanye and Kimmel and many other famous folks who simply don't see eye-to-eye:

Seth Rogen vs. Nancy Grace
Nancy Grace wondered aloud on Twitter whether pot was to blame for a guy killing his wife. Seth Rogen replied that the anchor is a "dumbass."
