nightshow with NBC called a little
latewith Lily Singh at the beginning was the most amazing opportunity a YouTuber had ever gotten and not only was she jumping into mainstream media but she was also going to be the first bisexual woman of color to get a late
nightshow , but once the show aired it received terrible reviews, even people who consider themselves fans of Lily's YouTube videos were forced to admit that the show was no good.
The show was renewed after its first season, but it didn't make it past the block cut afterward. season two Lily is still working in mainstream media, however, she doesn't get the respect on YouTube or TV that she had before her debut on the show at number 9. Kathy Griffin Kathy Griffin is one of the most controversial comedians because not ashamed She steers clear of sensitive topics like religion and politics, and it seems that her bad reputation trickles down to some of her peers, and as a result, she's been banned from countless talk
showsover the years. I think I might have broken a record for one of the most banned people ever being blacklisted from The Tonight Show with Jay Leno the view of Ellen today and The Late Show with David Letterman the story of why she got kicked out de Letterman is the craziest while on the show doing a live interview she decided to start stripping down, she stripped down so much that the crowd as well as those at home saw her bra on her tummy and the fact that she was not wearing underwear and then number eight Hugh Grant Hugh Grant ruined his career in a number of ways.
I think he cheated. in public with a sex worker was probably the most famous, but his bad reputation on late-night
showsdefinitely didn't help Jon Stewart had such a bad interaction with the actor that he decided to ban Grant from his late-night show in 2009. apparently he was unbelievably rude while on the show cursing and complaining about almost everything he is someone tried to set the record straight and admitted he was in a terrible mood the day he was on set tweeting quote turns out my inner crab got the best of me with the tv producer in 2009 the unforgivable Jay Stewart he's right to kick me so at least he knows he had it coming and at number seven Joan Rivers you're the start of Jones' long and successful career, she appeared frequently. on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, but when Joan got her own show with Fox, Carson wasn't happy with her and
theirfriendship ended sadly at the time she made history as the first woman to host a late-night show, but unfortunately the The show was not very good and it ended shortly after it started and when Joan tried to get back on the Johnny Carson show he actually turned her down and forbade her from ever coming back on his show at the time this was a huge blow to her fledgling career with some thinking it was the beginning of the end, the band even carried on when the show changed hands and Jay Leno took over in 1992, but luckily he managed to find work elsewhere and the band made little difference to
theirwork and number 6 billy bush billy bush was put in charge of an interview with businessman donald trump in 2005. at the time trump was famous for shows like The apprentice, but an x-rated conversation leading up to the interview was leaked to the public during the Trump's bid for office and, crazy as it was, barely made a difference in his popularity, yet the interview appeared to derail Bush's career in 2016 after the tape was suspiciously leaked allegedly by an NBC employee.
Bush was actually fired by the net, not sure if they thought he was responsible in any way according to page six. this may or may not have been part of Network's plan, although it was pretty clear they were trying to derail Trump's presidential bid after the derogatory comments made on the tape were revealed. It seems that a bush is the person who paid the number five median price. Caitlyn Jenner The infamous interview that Caitlyn Jenner did with Ellen DeGeneres completely changed the way people looked at Caitlyn and caused many in the LGBT community to recant their support for her.
The interview was so bad that Caitlyn was even blacklisted from Ellen's show after The Secrets of Her Life in Memoirs of My Life was called out to Ellen specifically for quoting her alienating her from the lgbtq community by not allowing Caitlyn to come to her show, however, it's clear that Caitlyn alienated herself during the 2015 interview. Ellen asked about Caitlyn's stance on gay marriage. Caitlyn responded that she was originally not in favor of gay marriage many years ago by adding a quote if that word marriage is important to you I can accept that and from Caitlyn's tone it didn't strike Ellen as genuine Ellen even pointed out Caitlyn's blatant hypocrisy in the Number 4 Michael Richards the legendary Seinfeld actor received backlash after he called out an audience member because this person was bothering him during a routine in 2006.
Michaels tried to reinvigorate his image by apologizing for comments on The Late Show with David. Letterman, however, seems the apology was not taken well because his career took a nosedive after the appearance. Since this incident, Richards has only appeared in two roles, one in Curb Your Enthusiasm and one in Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee at the number 3 David Letterman recently David Letterman has received a lot of criticism for his past interviews specifically for being inappropriate when interviewing his female guests, but there is another overlooked controversy involving Letterman that almost derailed his career in 2009. Letterman appeared on television and he told his unsuspecting viewers that he was apparently being blackmailed. this person knew that Letterman was having sexual relations with his co-workers and wanted two million dollars to keep the secret however, Letterman did not participate in the blackmail and decided to air his dirty laundry to the public after working with the company. police. discovered the person was producer Joe Holderman, many were shocked that Letterman would sleep with members of his staff, which is incredibly unethical given his position of power.
He seemed to get off the hook quite easily, but that behavior definitely wouldn't have been the current number. two Alan Carr's this one is honestly funny but it was too cheeky for many people's tastes while Kim Kardashian was on the Alan Carr show they were talking about his ass and why everyone thinks it's fake. Kim even showed Alan the X-ray images. she entered the show showing that there were no implants in her butt Canada decided to get a little cheeky and let Alan Carr grab her butt so he could feel if it was real the moment was very brief and they both took it like a champion but out of context, looks really bad after the capture card tells Kim that if she had a butt like yours, she'd walk into a room upside down.
How honored you are when people say you have the best butt in the world. Kim blamed the Armenian for her. jeans pointing out that all his sisters have curves and eventually Andy Dick's number one comedian Andy Dick got incredibly inappropriate on Jimmy Kimmel Live and was kicked off the show as a result, Dick was on the show at the same time as Ivanka Trump, the famous daughter. of Donald Trump throughout the interview. Andy got incredibly inappropriate with Ivanka touching her leg out of nowhere multiple times after Andy got too skilled. caught on camera, it all seemed to be some kind of joke, but it was clear Andy went too far.
I'm sure a lot of fans lost a lot of respect for him after that in #10 Crispin Glover things felt off with this interview. almost as soon as Glover walked on stage she was wearing a wig, striped skintight pants, platform shoes and oversized glasses, things took a turn for the worse once the two started talking and it became clear that something was seriously wrong with Glover at one point. he even started reading negative stories about himself that were written in The Weekly, then the tone changed and Glover tried to challenge Letterman to a wrestling match to prove he's strong, then kicked randomly at Letterman and almost hit him in the face expensive.
Letterman tried to defuse the situation and leave. when saying a quote, i have to check the top 10 list after that interview. Glover was written off as crazy in #9. Charles Rocket Charles Rocket was primed to be an SNL breakout star in 1981. Fans of the show called him the perfect combination. between Chevy Chase and Bill Murray and their segments on the show were adored by all, however their career came crashing down completely after you accidentally said the f-word during the live broadcast, every cast member at the time knew what It was important to never swear on TV like you'd get fired.
That is exactly what happened to Rocket. He went from being one of the best cast members of that era to being practically nobody in his career. He slowly slipped away after he got fired at number eight. Brian Williams Brian Williams was one of the best. news anchors who once filled the coveted spot at NBC's Nightly News, he was even so respected that he was often a guest on SNL and 30 Rock, but that all changed when Williams was found out to be a liar, the Lifer started in 2003 and he basically claimed he was in a military helicopter that was forced to land while flying over iraq the plane was hit by an rpg and almost crashed he kept repeating the story over and over again for years even after mentioning it on Late Night with David Letterman in 2013.
But when the world found out that the whole story was a lie, everyone was shocked and felt they couldn't trust him again. He ended up receiving a six-month suspension without pay from NBC and his career took a huge hit. He never came back. to the original role of him and was demoted to a smaller network and in #7 Abel Ferreira Conan O'Brien recently revealed who was the worst guest of his and it was none other than Abel Ferreira. Anyone familiar with the interview definitely knows why O'Brien spoke up. on the expert chair podcast where he showed that Ferreira entered the program against his will and made it clear that he did not want to be there.
Conan went on to say that Ferreira even left the building right before the show started. and the Conan staff had to track him down and drag him into the studio. O'Brien estimates that the principal was intoxicated during the argument. This made the interview sad and hard to watch, but he is now a fan favorite. Conan called it quote compellivision, which means he was very bad. the viewer couldn't stop watching it, he's so Infamous willing to face even commenting on it during his own interview with Conan and in number six Sinead O'Connor Sinead O'Connor was at the peak of her career when she was asked to perform on SNL but the live performance did not go as planned and his statements had serious repercussions.
O'Connor performed on SNL in October 1992. but SNL probably wished he didn't because O'Connor ended the performance by showing a photo of Pope John Paul II tore it up and saying he quoted fighting the Royal Enemy obviously offending millions of people, the show was quickly cut off after seeing what happened, but the damage was done and tons of angry calls flooded in to an audience member who even tried to assault O.'Connor should not be removed for security Not only did O'Connor get kicked out of SNL her career never recovered halfway through number five Ashley Simpson this is one of those accidents that sadly ruined a career while Ashley was on SNL to perform she did a song that skyrocketed no issues, but their second song caused an infamous moment the internet will never forget when the music started. the band kept playing well she danced around the stage and didn't sing a word in the days that followed the singer was attacked in the media for lip-syncing, which is especially bad at a live show after the incident where she tried to set the tone clear record and explain why he lip synced, told MTV he lost his voice due to acid reflux and instead of canceling his appearance, he thought it was better for everyone if he just faked it.
I'm sure she regrets it in hindsight and in number four. Prince Andrew Following allegations that Prince Andrew had closed ties with Jeffrey Epstein and Guillain Maxwell, the public demanded answers as to why they had seen each other so often and why there was photographic evidence of them together, Prince Andrew decided to make a interview with the BBC discussing everything and it was a completetrain wreck when asked if he was close to Epstein he claimed citing that it would be an exaggeration to say he was ever close friends with Epstein and claimed he was only plus one on GI Lane however there are records that Andrew visited Epstein after his release from prison in 2010.
He also said that Epstein's date behaved in an Unseemly manner to which the reporter replied Unseemly to which Andrew replied yes sorry I am being polite lastly Prince Andrew stated that she didn't sleep with him. Virginia Roberts because he said he was sweating and apparently had a condition after the war that caused him not to sweat at number three. Jim Cramer Jim Cramer is famous for being the wacky host of Mad Money, a show that talks about the stock market and even gives advice on which stocks to buy, but after the 2008 crash, everyone wondered how much Kramer knew that he didn't tell him. to the public on his show shortly after the collapse.
Kramer appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and completely
destroyedit. Stewart pushed Kramer into revealing that he knew what the banks were doing before the collapse, but didn't warn anyone that Stewart even aired a clip show and Kramer told his audience that Bear Stearns was in good shape right before it collapsed afterwards. that this Kramer's reputation took a huge hit and people couldn't trust him to give accurate information and in #2 Kelly Osborne Kelly Osborne received tons of flak after she made an incredibly insensitive comment about Latinos on The View in 2015. While the panel was discussing Donald Trump's hateful comments about Latinos, Osborne said to quote if you kick all Latinos out of this country, who's going to be cleaning your bathroom Donald Trump, you know what I mean after To a shocked reaction from the crowd, she retracted it, adding a quote.
I did not mean that. Come on, I would never say it like that. I am not part of this argument. I tried to help her by adding a quote. I think what you're trying to say is that Trump probably trusts the people he's insulting these haunted Kelly comments ever since and finally number one Jennifer Garner of course Jennifer Garner's career is going well. but she was incredibly embarrassed while she was on The Late Show with Conan O'Brien. Jennifer was promoting a new movie in which she was appearing where she was a secret agent who did tons of stunts.
The pair started talking about these stunts and Conan asked her if she had snuck it. anywhere, Jennifer was quick to reply that sneak isn't a word and sneak is the actual word to say, even mentioning the fact that Conan had a degree from Harvard and apparently didn't know it, however after they got back from commercial break, Conan pulled out the dictionary. and he proved that snuck is a word, it seems that snuck is the correct term, however, snuck has been popular since the 19th century and both are now recognized.
