The 19-year-old actor - who recently filmed a video urging people not to watch the show because it goes against his religious beliefs - released a statement to apologise to the cast and crew if he offended them.

"I have been the subject of much discussion, speculation and commentary over the past 24 hours. While I cannot address everything that has been said or right every misstatement or misunderstanding, there is one thing I want to make clear. Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two and Half Men with whom I have worked and over the past ten years who have become an extension of my family. Chuck Lorre, Peter Roth and many others at Warner Bros. and CBS are responsible for what has been one of the most significant experiences in my life to date. I thank them for the opportunity they have given and continue to give me and the help and guidance I have and expect to continue to receive from them.

VIDEO: Conan O’Brien Apologizes to Jimmy Kimmel for Rudolph Sketch


Fans of both Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Kimmel might have noticed something unusual on their broadcasts recently: similar sketches.

Two weeks ago, Jimmy Kimmel Live was first to air a mashup of Sarah Palin's Alaska with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. (Watch the video after the jump.) That clip was unfortunately followed up two weeks later by a Conan sketch that closely resembed the first.

In response to the snafu, O'Brien issued an apology to the competition -- and made other revelations -- in the message above.

South Park Creators Apologize for Copying Original Content


Although South Park's creators are known for producing controversial content, they don't usually say sorry for it.

Late last week, Trey Parker and Matt Stone apologized to the writers of a CollegeHumor.com video after they accidentally copied original content. Although the episode ("Insheeption") incorporated several lines from a clip called "Inception Characters Don't Understand Inception," Stone and Parker said they didn't know what they had done.

In an attempt to do an Inception-based episode, Matt and Trey tried to watch the movie for themselves -- unfortunately, they struck out finding a theater showing or a copy of the film. That is when they came across the College Humor clip (which can be seen after the jump).

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Late Night, Talk Shows, CBS, Video


Now that he’s got the disclosure part of the way, David Letterman is working on Phase 2 of his extortion plot situation: the apology.

On tonight’s Late Show broadcast, the host took time out to address the main woman in his life—his wife Regina Lasko. Although they have only been married since March of this year, the two have been dating for over 23 years. In other words, long before he ever started having sex with Stephanie Birkitt. (CBS provided the snippet above from this evening’s monologue.)

Kanye West apology

UPDATE: You can read Kanye’s newest apology here.
UPDATE: You can read Taylor Swift’s response to his outburst here.

Etiquette Rule #213: “If you’re going to write an apology letter…DON’T USE ALL FREAKIN’ CAPS!!!”

Shortly after disrespecting country singer Taylor Swift (and reportedly being kicked out of the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards), Kanye West hit his personal blog.

Since we’re currently unable to access the website (has the half-ass “apology” already disintegrated?), you’ll just have to read his

insincere

words here.

What do you think about the rapper’s post? Do you think Taylor should even give him the time of day?

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Late Night, Talk Shows, CBS, News

David Letterman and Sarah Palin

The Sarah Palin/David Letterman controversy has just entered its next and, hopefully, final phase.

On tonight’s Late Show with David Letterman, the host does what many had felt he should have done last week—apologize sincerely to the Alaskan governor. The move comes after increased criticism about his questionable jokes and a scathing response from Palin herself. (The network also lost an advertiser from its website.)

Although a video clip will most likely be made available later, you can read CBS’ transcript of Letterman’s remarks after the jump.

ABC offers apology regarding Desperate Housewives Philippines comment

Desperate Housewives  ABC might have stepped over the line during a recent episode of Desperate Housewives, sparking a public outcry culminating in online petitions, angry phone calls and criticism from Philippine officials. Sunday’s Desperate season premiere featured Susan () at the doctor’s office, a character who becomes horrified to learn she may be going through menopause. Here’s how it played out:

“Listen, Susan, I know for a lot of women the word ‘menopause’ has negative connotations. You hear ‘aging, brittle bones, loss of sexual desire,’” says the doctor. “Okay, so before we go any further, can I check these diplomas? Just to make sure they aren’t, like, from some med school in the Philippines?” Susan offers her supposed-to-be-funny rejoinder.

And that’s when the desperation hit the fan. Calls started rolling in, and as of Wednesday evening more than thirty thousand had added their names to an online petition demanding apology from ABC. The network has responded with a statement saying they’re considering editing the episode, and has offered their “sincere apologies.” The prepared statement said the network had no intention of disparaging the integrity of any aspect of the medical community in the Philippines. The episode has drawn international attention and plenty of YouTube hits, beginning a PR nightmare for ABC execs.
