Today, I tried to call Last Call with Carson Daly and sell him some jokes for his non-WGA monologue. I had no luck; I even tried to get the receptionist to be a front for me.

How many of you are into TMZ? One of the funniest things on TMZ, lately, is Aries Spears trying to get into Hyde, the popular nightclub here in LA. (show clip) One of the things we love to do here on my show help out celebrities, so here are some tips for you, Aries, to help you get into Hyde.
