"I owe a lot to Bill O'Reilly," admitted "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert in his opening monologue. "I spent over nine years playing a character based largely on him -- and then 12 months in therapy to debloviate myself."
The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards will return to the best coast in August. The cable network announced Thursday that this year's ceremony will be held at the Forum in Inglewood on Aug. 27.
"The City of Inglewood welcomes the return of the MTV VMAs to the number 1 concert venue in California, the Forum,” said Inglewood mayor James Butts in a statement. "Once again, Madison Square Garden set the standard for both East and West Coasts."
The VMAs have split their locations between the two coasts for the last decade, specifically in New York City and the greater Los Angeles area. 2007 was the last time the awards eschewed the coast, landing instead in Las Vegas at the Palms Casino Resort.
