19 Celebs Banned From TV Shows

If your dream is to get on a late night talk show and discuss whatever pranks George Clooney played on you on set, you'd best come correct. If you don't, you could end up on this list of celebrities, who, for one reason or another, are banned from appearing on certain TV shows. You also have to get really famous first, but that seems pretty easy. Just write a hit song that takes the world by storm or fall into a mall fountain on camera, whichever's easier.
