Seth Meyers unpacks the absurdity of Trump calling anyone else part of a mob on Late Night Seth Meyers unpacks the absurdity of Trump calling anyone else part of a mob on Late Night

With the most important midterm elections in recent history fast approaching, Seth Meyers took a long look at Donald Trump and the Republicans’ campaign rhetoric on Monday’s Late Night.

Jimmy Kimmel’s been doing his show on location in Brooklyn all week, so naturally he got a Thursday visit from everyone’s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Peter Parker’s Spider-Man is from Queens, technically, but there’s corporate synergy to be done, here, people, since both ABC and Spidey (thanks to some very …

With the most pivotal midterm elections in a long, long time coming up on November 6, Samantha Bee took some time on Wednesday’s baseball game-delayed Full Frontal to examine how both political parties are approaching the sacred institution of free and fair elections with equal degrees of impartiality, fair play, and…

On The Late Show, Lin-Manuel Miranda talks Puerto Rico, his new book, and closing Hamilton's loop On The Late Show, Lin-Manuel Miranda talks Puerto Rico, his new book, and closing Hamilton's loop

Hamilton creator and one of the last pure, good things left in this world Lin-Manuel Miranda stopped by The Late Show on Tuesday. Sure, he’s got a new book out, a typically delightful-looking collection of his Twitter aphorisms and original drawings (because of course the noted polymath can draw, too), but he and host…

After a week off to rest, recuperate, and drink nothing but absinthe (according to himself), Stephen Colbert returned to The Late Show on Monday to find that, yup, America is still getting dumber. Apart from the simple fact that racist simpleton Donald Trump is still in the White House (like, as president, even),…

John Oliver lays the smackdown on Saudi Arabia's relationship with Trump, John Cena John Oliver lays the smackdown on Saudi Arabia's relationship with Trump, John Cena

On Sunday’s Last Week Tonight, John Oliver continued his weekly public service of processing seven days’ worth of hateful, dispiriting bullshit into a half-hour of expertly modulated, laugh-punctuated comic outrage, as he took a look at the United States’ long and morally queasy relationship with the oil-rich…

A trio of sweet religious tales sees The Simpsons finding goodness, if not greatness A trio of sweet religious tales sees The Simpsons finding goodness, if not greatness

We’ve met God before, of course. He of the four fingers, and the booming voice, and the seriously requited love for Ned Flanders (except when he let Ned’s house get wrecked by a hurricane that one time). In The Simpsons’ universe, there is, objectively, a God. Specifically the Judeo-Christian variety, as worshipped…

Now that Bill Cosby's in jail, Kenan Thompson got to dust off his Cosby impression on SNL Now that Bill Cosby's in jail, Kenan Thompson got to dust off his Cosby impression on SNL

Not that he rates anywhere on the list of people negatively affected by anything now-convicted rapist Bill Cosby has done in his life, but poor Kenan Thompson. Despite having a solid Cosby impression in his back pocket all these years (he was play Fat Albert, for crying out loud), Thompson has had to keep his Cosby…

In another late-night comedy post-mortem of the cultural car crash that was the eventual confirmation of perjuring, conspiracy-spewing, flush-faced accused sex criminal Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Jim Jefferies played the molar-grinding clips of other rich and powerful white guys apologizing that Kavanaugh…

John Oliver appeals to Brazilians not to elect yet another home-grown Donald Trump John Oliver appeals to Brazilians not to elect yet another home-grown Donald Trump

Sure, it seems lazy to brand every right-wing authoritarian blowhard candidate [Country X’s] Donald Trump, but, as John Oliver revealed on Sunday’s Last Week Tonight, Brazil might just be on the verge of electing the Trumpiest Brazilian Trump possible. Indeed, as Oliver went to air, he was unsure which way Brazil’s…

While Matt Damon’s hysterically entitled Brett Kavanaugh was nowhere to be seen, last night Saturday Night Live cold open saw the show’s cast impersonating the Republican senators who rammed through their favorite, accused rapist frat bro justice living it up, Kavanaugh-style. For Heidi Gardner’s CNN reporter Dana…
