Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who adapted the film into a musical back in 2012 (and went on to create the PHENOMENAL Dear Evan Hansen), will write all new songs for the TV production!

Ah, the summer of ‘05.

Things sure were a lot simpler back then: soul patches and trucker hats were in style, George W. Bush was president, and Jon Stewart's all-star Daily Show team was still in tact.

Thankfully, Stephen Colbert gave us a much needed walk down memory lane on Tuesday's Late Show by reuniting the original Comedy Central news squad!

After an opening bit featuring Stewart and Colbert being ordered around by Trevor Noah, the CBS host drifted off into a star studded flashback to his last day at the Daily Show offices in summer of 2005.

In the sketch, Colbert was joined by fellow correspondents Samantha Bee, Ed Helms, Rob Corddry, and Steve Carell (played by John Oliver, because Carell was unavailable) — who were all fighting over who got Colbert's offices once he left.

Stewart, who was caught in the staff refrigerator emotionally eating their yogurt, then popped out to congratulate his team on "spreading their wings" before they launched their pre-show prayer: "Go liberal agenda!"

Ha! Ch-ch-check it out (below)!

And that's a great thing, since they're going to continue working together on HGTV's Flip or Flop for another season and up to 20 more episodes.

The two, who broke up in May 2016 after eight years together, also joked about their split while presenting the award for Outstanding Entertainment News Program, with Tarek saying:

"It is kind of fitting because I think we've been on each and every one about 100 times per month, so they know us pretty well."

Christina added:

"Only for the past few months."

HA! The couple who jokes together, has an amicable breakup together! Or something like that…

Anyway, looking good, guys!

Sean Spicer's Hitler Press Conference Fail Fits WAY Too Perfectly With The Veep Closing Credits!

It's a tough time for political satire when the current White House one big running joke.

No one knows this better than David Mandel and the creative team behind the acclaimed HBO political comedy Veep.

The showrunner admitted that Donald Trump's administration has made it particularly hard to satirize politics when the actual POTUS makes Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Selina Meyer look like a potty-mouthed George Washington.

And although Matt Walsh plays the world's dumbest press secretary on the Emmy winning series, actual press secretary Sean Spicer gives the dim-witted Mike McLintock a run for his money!

YouTube user Dan Ketchum proved this with the help of Spicer's latest White House press briefing blunder, in which he falsely claimed Adolf Hitler "didn't sink to using chemical weapons" on his people.

To demonstrate how we're actually living in a political comedy, Ketchum spliced together footage from Spicer's presser with Veep's closing credits — which usually tag the episode by highlighting a character's incompetency.

Watch the hilarious clip (below) to see why Spicey really belongs in the ensemble comedy!

The comedy world lost one of their all time greats when Don Rickles passed away on Thursday at the age of 90.

Because the great insult legend had such a profound influence on many of today's comedians, the hosts of late night were definitely reeling over the loss.

Specifically Jimmy Kimmel, who could barely keep it together as he dedicated his monologue to the icon.

Though other late night hosts weren't as close with Rickles, they all shared a story about a brush they had with "Mr. Warmth," which usually included him making fun of something.

On Late Night, Seth Meyers paid tribute to "one of the all time greats" by telling a story of meeting Rickles at

Jack Donaghy may have never wanted to get with Liz Lemon in 30 Rock, but the same can't be said for Alec Baldwin when he first laid eyes on Tina Fey.

In fact, when the 58-year-old actor met the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt creator for the first time, he "fell in love"!

Appearing on the cover of Vanity Fair's April issue, the veteran actor reflected on his Saturday Night Live history — including the first time he was introduced to his future sitcom costar.

In an adaption from his upcoming memoir Nevertheless, Baldwin recounts:

"When I first met Tina Fey — beautiful and brunette, smart and funny, by turns smug and diffident and completely uninterested in me or anything I had to say — I had the same reaction that I'm sure many men and women have: I fell in love."

At the time, Fey was the head writer at SNL and Baldwin was set to host that week's show.

The writers and producers congregated in Lorne Michaels' office when Baldwin turned to talent coordinator Marci Klein to ask if Fey was single. He wrote:

Sara Gilbert is used to talking for a living, but she had her very own "Adele Dazeem" moment when announcing the Daytime Emmy nominations this week!

Back on Wednesday's The Talk, the panelists revealed the nominations of select categories.

When it came time for the Roseanne alum's turn to announce the noms for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host, she had a bit trouble pronouncing some of the nominees' names.

Sara struggled with the last names of The View's Sara Haines, Jedediah Bila, and Sunny Hostin, as well as The Real's Adrienne Houghton and Jeannie Mai.

And while the on air flub was definitely no John Travolta moment, Gilbert was still criticised for her mispronunciation — by none other than The View's panel moderator Whoopi Goldberg!

Whoopi poked fun at the rival talk show host on Thursday's show, saying to the audience:
