[ cheers and applause ] good to hear.
12:38 am
very good to hear. you guys, big political news this morning president obama asked congress to formally authorize the use of force against isis. or as congress put it, "you guys, he finally popped the question. he finally asked us to authorize force, you guys. i thought he was going to wait until valentine's day, but he did it today." [ laughter ] that is my impression of everyone in congress talking at once. it's very high pitched when they all do it at the same time. this is unbelievable. apple closed tuesday's trading day on wall street as the first ever american company worth $700 billion. $700 billion. and now, instead of saying what can i help you with? siri says, "what the hell do you want?" [ laughter ]
12:39 am
"i'm sorry, i didn't get that. you think i want to help you find a starbucks?" kanye west -- this is interesting kayne west told ryan seacrest this morning, that he plans to record a song with taylor swift, when she least expects it. [ laughter ] his style. that's his style. not sure how to feel about this. a lawmaker in tennessee is pushing to make the bible the official state book. make the bible the official state book of tennessee. it would replace tennessee's current state book, the menu at cracker barrel. [ laughter ] so, that's interesting. that's an upgrade. it's longer. [ applause ] disney has announced that it will be launching eight star wars themed cruises next year. the first three will be great, but the rest will suck. [ laughter and applause ]
12:40 am
get on -- you can't -- and it's weird because the first three are four, five and six. so it's very confusing. listen to this a woman was arrested this week after she admitted to purchasing gasoline, driving to his ex-boyfriend's house and using it to set his new girlfriend's car on fire. she's now facing five years in prison and up to three country music awards. [ laughter ] that's pretty exciting. i'm happy for her. [ applause ] and finally a man in florida was charged with posession of marijuana after police noticed a green leafy substance all over his sweater, but then they realized it was kale and they shot him. ladies and gentlemen, this is the 8g band. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: how are we doing, 8g band? so, lovely to see you. great to see you fred. everything good? >> fred: great. >> seth: are you getting excited for the snl 40th?
12:41 am
>> fred: yeah, i can't wait. >> seth: that's sunday night, you're going to be there, yeah? >> fred: huh? yes. >> seth: okay, good. i'm gonna be there too. it'll be really fun. and you know it's amazing, you know i see you all the time. i'm going to see you on sunday. so this weekend i'll get to see you as well. but, yet even in the little time that we don't see each other, you manage to accomplish all these amazing things. and i do worry sometimes that people who watch at home, might think you're coming up with the answers to these questions off the top of your head. that you're just making up lies and presenting them as truths. i know you wouldn't do that, because we're too good a friend for you to do that to me, you know? [ laughter ] but anyways i heard backstage that you were saying, you were saying to people that you know, a lot of times guys will forget about valentine's day. and you've developed a new service for people this is, guys can call if they forgot about valentine's day, is this true? >> fred: that's right. you can call a section of the zoo where they keep the walruses and what happens is, you know, the walruses make so much noise,
12:42 am
that once you call it just reminds you to please remember valentine's day. [ laughter ] so it's a sort of walrus call. >> seth: wow! this doesn't make much sense to me at all. so, the walrus noise, i call this service. >> fred: yes. >> seth: but, again if i call the service, that means i've -- i know i've forgotten valentine's day, you know what i mean? like i am like, "oh, i forgot." i thought, you know, the service would help plan a night for somebody, get a gift. but then you what? you patch them through to walrus noises? >> fred: no, i think what happens is, once you realize, i think i forgot something, i don't know what that is. once it goes through to the walrus department at the zoo, then that's when you're like, i remember what this is about, this is about the fact that i always forget valentine's day. >> seth: got ya. but again, i have to remember a phone number. it seems like if i remember the phone number, it's hard to imagine that i would remember that much and not why i'm calling. >> fred: yeah, but, you can, again, everything over and over
12:43 am
it's not going to make it any more clear to you. >> seth: okay. >> fred: if you don't understand you don't have to partake in this. [ laughter ] this is something that you -- you know, if -- i think the people who really care about valentine's day will be a part of this. if you don't want to do it, great, you know. that's totally your choice. that's great. buti it's something that i'm going to go this year definitely, call in, it's just that noise is just so memorable. you're like, valentine's day. [ laughter ] >> seth: walruses, thank you fred. that's so awesome. what's the service called? >> fred: 911. >> seth: what? >> fred: 911. >> seth: 911. [ laughter ] that's a terrible name. >> fred: spelled out. >> seth: no, just don't. very excited tomorrow we're having some people on from the westminster dog show, and this is the more exciting part, they're going to bring some dogs. and they're bringing an italian greyhound, an award winning, one of the top shelf italian greyhounds. i'm going to bring my italian greyhound frisbee. we're going to get the honest assessment from the westminster people to see exactly how good my dog is.
12:44 am
and i'm real worried. as worried as i am, i think frisbee's even more worried. she's only been on the show one other time with martha stewart and her dog. and martha stewart's dog sexually assaulted my dog. [ laughter ] for frisbee this isn't a safe place, and now i have to bring her back here and basically see how she can run with the big dogs, although she can't, because she's seven pounds. but, i'm very excited about that, so tune in tomorrow if you want to see frisbee try to top her last appearance on the show. you guys we have such an excellent show for you tonight. william h. macy is here. [ cheers and applause ] can't wait to talk to him. also joining us to discuss the upcoming all-star weekend here in new york, two-time nba champion and analyst from "inside the nba" kenny smith will be joining us. [ cheers and applause ] and we will have music from the districts. [ cheers and applause ] so, as many of you know, as we mentioned, "50 shades of grey" comes out in theaters this weekend.
12:45 am
the film is based on the first book in the "50 shades" trilogy. the second book is called "50 shades darker" and the third is called "50 shades freed." well, this is very exciting because tonight in a "late night" exclusive, we have gotten our hands on an early copy of the fourth book -- the new fourth book in the series, "50 shades married." [ laughter ] now, this follows the married life of christian grey and anna 15 years later. i'd like to read a few select passages for you. but, i should warn you, this material is explicit, it's steamy hot. so, without further ado, here is "50 shades married." [ cheers and applause ] ♪ christian filled with desire bounded into the kitchen. he knew what he wanted. he came up behind anna and grabbed her shoulders. "not now," she said, "i'm trying to figure out this verizon fios bill." [ laughter ]
12:46 am
christian exhaled deeply. "christian junior comes back from baseball practice in 45 minutes, it's now or never." "look" anna said, in a near whisper, "i have to call my mom. that will probably take an hour." but then suddenly, reaching out and touching her soft hands to his hot chest, she added, "did you remember to go to home depot and return the dehumidifier?" [ laughter ] in a low carnal growl, christian responded, "no, i forgot. shoot. what did i do with that receipt." wow! that is hot stuff. very, very hot stuff. [ applause ] let's read another passage. christian touched the small of anna's back, "hey, did you turn on the timer on the sprinkler system?" anna bit her lower lip. "no, i thought you did." christian's body became flush.
12:47 am
a bead of sweat dripped from his brow. "for crying out loud, anna, these azaleas are going to die. and that's new sod out there." anna could no longer fight the sweet release. "sorry, mr. perfect, at least i'm not the one who thought it was okay to take me to buffalo wild wings for our anniversary." [ laughter ] "you going to keep throwing that in my face?" christain roared like an untamed lion. "you like the burgers there." through gritted teeth anna responded. "if you ever listened, you would know i like the burgers at red robin. now, pull over at the post office, we need stamps." [ laughter ] whoo, kinky. kinky business. [ applause ] let's read one more. christian and anna found themselves in the attic, it was hot up there, like a sauna. their sweaty bodies brushed up against one another, as they sorted through boxes for their yard sale.
12:48 am
"what do you want to do with this old set of golf clubs," anna asked in that sultry tone of hers. "those calloways i actually might use those," he responed. "fine, whatever," she said, rolling her eyes. christian's biceps flexed as he lifted another box on to a table and began looking through it, "hey, anna," he said, "what do you want to do with our old blindfolds, handcuffs, anal beads, ball gags, nipple clamps, steel butt plugs and glass didlo?" [ laughter ] "throw them in the trash," she said. and then with a devilish glint in her eye she slinked over to the box and grabbed the glass dildo. except for this. make sure you put this in recycling. [ laughter and applause ] whoo, "50 shades married." that's the movie i can't wait for. we'll be right back with more "late night." [ cheers and applause ] ♪

1:17 am
only announcing the game. >> seth: so you're getting hit up a lot of family and friends. >> oh hit up. oh my gosh. it's like i have three cousins, i just met back here with you. that i didn't know i had. [ laughter ] >> seth: well, that's a problem with smith as a last name. everyone is like, hey you remember me? >> mr. meyers, yeah. everyone knows that. >> seth: and this is your 16th all-star game. now, what's the most exciting part of it, the game of course doesn't really matter. it becomes a little bit of an exhibition. what is the weekend like for you? >> the weekend's fun. it's kind of like the ancillary events are great, because it's like walking through a hotel lobby seeing your trading cards. walking in and you see like, there's dr. j., then there's lebron, then there's oscar robinson. the past, present, the future all kind of mingling together. i was a basketball fan before i was good at it. >> seth: right. >> so for me, this is like being a kid again. chasing people for autographs. >> seth: what -- do you have a most memorable all-star game looking back? >> actually, not any one i participated in, it's the
1:18 am
magic johnson coming back. >> seth: sure, yeah. >> that was big. because what magic did is, he changed societies thought process of not only hiv and aids and everything else, but how you react to people who are in need. i just thought that was a great moment. >> seth: yeah that's probably one of the most special all-star games in any sport looking back. so you -- obviously your show, we mentioned emmy award winning, i have to say, it's one of the best panel shows about sports, any sport. >> we have fun. >> seth: you, shaq, barkley, ernie, and shaq was on, and he said that he goes after barkley on twitter, because he knows that barkley doesn't have a twitter account and will never see it. >> right, right. [ laughter ] >> seth: but you've tried to help chuck with the internet, yes? >> well he's deficient in the area of technology. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> four years ago, he just got his first laptop. and so i'm showing him how to use this thing called the internet. >> seth: right. >> and so -- no, he called it -- teach me how to use the www. [ laughter ]
1:19 am
>> seth: it's a little bit dated. well that's nice of you to help him out. >> no question. >> seth: for new yorkers, the knicks. tell us what you think about the knicks. they're not -- >> okay, next subject. >> seth: yeah, it's hard. >> i mean it's hard when you're -- no, seriously, like it's not my fault they're bad. [ laughter ] but it's hard when your coach is your best point guard. >> seth: right. >> and your gm is your best coach. >> seth: yeah. >> like that's pretty difficult to win in those circumstances. >> seth: what about the second half of the season, what do you think the most interesting stories going-forward? >> team play. >> seth: yeah. >> that's going to be, i think -- it used to be a time when people say, "hey i'm going to see kobe play." "i'm going to see shaq play." now they go, i'm going to go see atlanta. >> seth: right. >> they don't go see the knicks. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> "i'm going to go see san antonio." they say the whole team now. and i think that's what you'll see in the second half. >> seth: and is that cohesiveness of team basketball, as someone who watches so much of it. is it more fun to watch for you than the old star system?
1:20 am
>> yeah, yeah, it's much more fun. i know what the 12-man roster does, and i know how intricate each part is, it's kind of like having a car with no steering wheel. you have a car, but you still need this guy and you need the best part of that car. so it's great to see it as a player, a former player, and see that now as an announcer. >> seth: that's great. you have a new tv show with your family, which is really exciting. "meet the smiths?" >> "meet the smiths," coming this friday, we're getting a sneak preview of it. >> seth: all right. so this is your beautiful family first of all. look at you guys, that's great. your daughter is releasing a single? she's a musician? >> this is a big weekend. >> seth: it's big weekend. >> it's a big weekend. >> seth: tell us about it. >> my daughter is releasing a single friday. >> seth: all right. >> called "honest." kayla brianna is the name. go get your single friday. >> seth: okay, great. >> and then the show comes on friday night. >> seth: got ya. >> i'm on all-star weekend. >> seth: yeah. >> my wife works on "price is right," gwendolyn. so now that's going to be on, on friday. so every friday's a big day.
1:21 am
>> seth: it's a big day. now tell me, what's the show? like what do we find out about your family watching the show? >> i found out things. >> seth: okay, that's good. [ laughter ] >> i was like -- oh. >> seth: it's different with cameras around. people are different. >> oh, you're dating him? okay. all right. >> seth: you think they waited to tell you until there were cameras there for protection? >> without question. you know what the funny thing is, i was so nervous because i've been asked a lot because we have an eccletic family. all over the board. i have two to 21 in the household, so i've been asked before, and i think, no, no, no, i just don't want to leave myself out there. but i felt comfortable and this is the first time i think we spent ten hours in the house together, that much. >> seth: that's good. >> so while they're filming something over here, we're playing board games. i was like, you're actually pretty cool, k.j. my son, i didn't think you were cool. i knew malloy was cool, but i didn't think you were cool. >> seth: that's great. so i guess, you know, the lesson is, i think all families out there should just you know, bring a reality crew in you house, and you'll learn a little bit about your kids. >> the good thing about it, i get away every two days, i go to work actually in atlanta.
1:22 am
so i'm not there all the time. so they don't get sick of me probably either. >> seth: that's good, that's really good. >> you've got to have travel. >> seth: this i will say, this would be my dream. this is really big. you guys -- they did a justice league with you, and to promote the all-star game. >> yeah. >> seth: that's really exciting. there you are, and was this a big deal for you? >> yes, i was reading the comic book with my 2-year-old london and malloy. i hadn't read it, i didn't know what had happened in the book. >> seth: do you live? >> first of all, i save new york. >> seth: oh that's good. [ cheers ] >> i save new york. and there's a race, we have to get to a certain place, and because i'm from new york, i know the way. >> seth: wow. >> i'm telling the whole story. >> seth: you ruined it. that's fine. yeah. >> i win the race. >> seth: that's great. >> i was like, this is the greatest comic book ever. >> seth: now hold on. did you win the race or -- >> i won the race. you know why i won the race? check this out. >> seth: yeah, you're riding on -- >> i took the subway.
1:23 am
>> seth: oh, there you go. [ laughter ] >> everyone else didn't take the subway. >> seth: there you go. that's really good. and then when you say you save new york. and how good are the knicks in this? >> the knicks are terrible. [ laughter ] in here. >> seth: even in fictional -- >> even in fiction. even in reality. they're on a 2-3 year plan. >> seth: okay, that's good. >> 2-3 years before they even start figuring it out. >> seth: okay, that's good. well a plan's a plan. >> a plan's a plan. >> seth: well, congratulations on a very big weekend. good luck for all of it. thank you so much for being here. >> all right, thank you. >> seth: kenny smith, everybody. check out tnt's "inside the nba" and it's coverage of the all-star weekend. we'll be right back with music from the district.
