Michelle Obama says things she could never say as First Lady on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Former First Lady, best-selling author, and person who claims she is never, ever running for public office (ever), Michelle Obama stopped by for an extra-long appearance on Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Stephen Colbert assesses Trump AG and time-traveling Bigfoot penis-toilet pitchman Matthew Whitaker

Oh, would that that were just a funny headline. Well, at least a funny headline not 100 percent based in the truth that the acting Attorney General of the United States is a flim-flam artist with a long and documented history of shilling for giant penis toilets and Bigfoot parties. Oh, and time-travel. As Stephen…

“Cult leader” Jason Mantzoukas foments revolt among The Late Show’s audience

Having never met Jason Mantzoukas before, The Late Show host Stephen Colbert quickly learned the dangers and delights of having the noted improviser; podcast star; Big Mouth, The League, and The Good Place (“Derek!”) scene-stealer; and star of the new film The Long Dumb Road in your house. (And don’t get us started on …

SNL’s Pete Davidson eats crow for mocking wounded vet Dan Crenshaw, who delivers more in person

Last week, Pete Davidson took a passing shot at wounded former Navy SEAL and current Texas Republican Congressman-elect Dan Crenshaw.

Tracy Morgan tells pal Seth Meyers he's staying away from politics, citing "crazy motherfucker" Kanye

On a crazy motherfucker of a week, sometimes you just need a little Tracy Morgan in your life. For Seth Meyers, who spent his Thursday “A Closer Look” segment breaking down how Donald Trump has “lost his mind” desperately looking to distract people from both the looming Mueller investigation and the Republicans’…

Stephen Colbert asks CBS' Major Garrett about being on the floor for Trump's presser meltdown

On a day when the press became the story—that of an unhinged, panicky bully berating and eventually banning reporters for asking questions he didn’t like—Stephen Colbert was lucky enough to have booked a journalist who was on the ground for all the action. CBS White House correspondent Major Garrett was on The Late…

Before the Election Night deluge, Stephen Colbert sings from the submarine we're stuck in together

If you were someone who thought it wise to record every late-night show’s live election coverage of the midterm elections on Tuesday, you should be finished catching up right . . . about . . .

John Oliver looks at the cruel circular illogic of Trump's immigration racism on Last Week Tonight

With the midterm elections coming up tomorrow, John Oliver had plenty of topics to work with when it came to spurring his audience to vote on whether or not Donald fucking Trump’s America is something they really want to support.

Billy Eichner urges everyone to join him for a Tuesday voting orgy on The Late Show

On Friday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert welcomed American Horror Story star and titular Billy On The Street, Billy Eichner, with an innocent-sounding “How are you?” Knowing it doesn’t take much to set Eichner’s comedy whirlwind of a mind going, Colbert sat back as the actor, comedian, and voting enthusiast indeed then…

On The Late Show, Riverdale's Cole Sprouse reveals his childhood acting crush, when to show nipple

Known now to fans of “show that should be a hot flaming mess but is actually really good, although maybe in an ironic way, but then again, maybe not,” Riverdale, as that teen drama’s own Jughead Jones, Cole Sprouse has been acting since as close to forever as it gets. Telling Stephen Colbert on Thursday’s Late Show…

Kerry Washington calls on her portrayal of Anita Hill to urge people to vote on The Late Show

Scandal star Kerry Washington may have hung up her enormous wine glasses and favorite bludgeoning chair, but the actress told Stephen Colbert that she’s hardly done with politics on Monday’s Late Show.

John Oliver will annoy the hell out of you until you pay attention to your Attorney General race

On Sunday’s Last Week Tonight, John Oliver knew he was fighting a losing battle with his main story segment about Attorneys General. For one thing, the proper plural of “Attorney General” is the sort of pedantic detail that eminently punchable grammar nerds love to say. (Cue picture of pedantic grammar nerd Oliver in…

Tiffany Haddish deploys her Lady Of Rage to trounce Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show

Tiffany Haddish continued her mission to make even this benighted world just a little bit brighter when she showed up on The Tonight Show on Thursday.

Sam Bee gets nasty about GOP bigotry, even as a transgender candidate takes the high road

On a day where some MAGA moron attempted murderer put out a thankfully inept hit on literally every one of Donald Trump’s favorite vilified Democrats and number one news target CNN, Samantha Bee was a little fired up.
