Obama confirmed that there’s weird shit in the sky, but refused to confirm or deny whether any of that weird shit was aliens. But now that every late-night show is friends with every other late-night show, guests can spread across platforms with wild abandon. While chatting with Meyers, he went into his cue-card gift business, as well as the time Charles Barkley pranked the SNL cast by pretending to blow up at him. Obama Deflects and Reads on The Late Late Show

Obama’s May 17 appearance on The Late Late Show was an excuse for people to break character. Hellooooo, Tevas? Patti Harrison and Jimmy Kimmel are a weirdly perfect comedic duo. And then she’s like ‘Frozen grapes!’ I’m like ‘Frozen grapes!’” he said. Harrison makes a profound argument for why comedy needs context, an argument that is borne out by how bonkers the previous sentence reads for someone who isn’t extremely online. Instead, she gave a gripping play-by-play of the time she got kicked off Twitter for impersonating a bi-phobic Sia, doing a social-media takeover of Nilla Wafers. Makes you think. And the WLW audience of The Late Show is owed an apology from Stephen Colbert for not knowing that we’re known for comfortable footwear. And then she’s like ‘Come close,’ and I come close. Guests read a statement from an envelope, which is either a true or false factoid about them. But he didn’t. Bana did The Tonight Show and The Late Late Show in the same week, something that was verboten during the late-night wars. And then she’s like ‘Get away,’ and I get away.

This week on late night, it was all about apologies — who made them, and whom was owed them. Matty Matheson’s Birth Story on A Little Late

Lilly Singh said she’s going to use what time she has left on NBC to cram our airwaves with Canadian celebs. 3.

Kimmel just sets up Harrison to go off, and she does. Good save, Wally! More From This Series

Fallon’s Tonight Show, which has been picked up for another five years, relies heavily on stars playing party games. Also, he’s getting his pilot’s license, which is neat. “True Confessions” is the show’s version of Two Truths and a Lie. The sweat is overcometh,’ and I’m like ‘pat pat pat.’” Vice should give Matty his own show explaining the health issues of today. 1. 21 Savage will soon be a pilot, yet Twenty One Pilots remain on the ground.

Eric Bana made the rounds in support of his Australian thriller, proudly proclaiming on The Tonight Show that he did fuck-all during quar.
