Watch | Late night comedy returns, Harry and Meghan Markle ditch 'Sussex Royal' and 'Girls' creator Lena Dunham releases an interactive novel

Plus, the Backstreet Boys make good use of old lyrics, in Pop Break with Stephanie Haney on What's New

The theme of today's top Hollywood headlines is what's coming back, and that includes a lot of laughs, a royal and a boy band's early hit that's more relevant than ever.

First up, late night comedy is back on the scene tonight, after the hosts have been watching how it's done by the Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon.

Stephen Colbert and Conan O'Brien debut new shows tonight, from home, using hilarious setups including iPhones and Skype to talk with their guests.  

Fallon has already been doing this, turning his daugthers and his well-established producer wife into this at-home dream team, and it's been absolute perfection.

Andy Cohen is also back on Monday night, after testing positive for COVID-19 but assuring his fans over Twitter that he's now feeling well enough to tackle "Watch what Happens Live" again.

Also on the mend is 71-year-old Prince Charles, who is now out of self-isolation just seven days after being diagnosed with COVID-19 coronavirus, according to Yahoo. All royal family members across the pond are staying home during this pandemic.

Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan Markle announced on Monday that they will no longer be using 'Sussex Royal' online, on either social media or their website. 

Their web page and Instagram accounts will remain live, but they won't be updated from here on out. The pair, who are now staying with son Archie in Los Angeles, agreed to this as part of their deal with Queen Elizabeth II.

Harry, who has asked not to be referred to as 'Prince Harry,' and Meghan will officially step back from their duties as senior members of the royal family on Tuesday, March 31.

'Girls' creator Lena Dunham is up to something new in self-isolation.

She's releasing a chapter a day from her new novel, 'Verified Strangers,' in partnership with Vogue.

The book follows a modern 32-year old woman on her quest for love, and it's interactive.

Dunham says she's always been fascinated by serial publishing, so that's why she chose to release the novel in this unique way.

As for unique entertainment choices, there were many amazing performances during iHeartRadio's virtual concert on Sunday night on Fox.

Performers included  Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters, Demi Lovato, Tim McGraw and Mariah Carey.

But it was the Backstreets Boys who really stole the show, with a group performance of 'I Want It That Way,' filmed solo from each of their five homes, as they belted out classic lyrics including "we are two worlds apart" and "no matter the distance."

It was a perfectly played fun for the guys who have had to put a halt to their DNA World Tour amidst concert cancellations.

As of now, their show is set to stop in Ohio at Blossom Music Center on July 28.
