Late Night Highlights
Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon:
New House Speaker John Boehner broadcast his swearing-in ceremony live on Facebook today. Not to be outdone Joe Biden went on Facebook and took a quiz to see what Jersey Shore character he is.
Speaking of Facebook a woman in Indiana stabbed her boyfriend because he wouldn’t let her look at his Facebook page. The guy’s relationship status now reads: What do you think?
The State of New York has fired 90% of its official Kosher Inspectors. This is the first decision from New York’s newest elected official: Governor Mel Gibson.
I read that the fast-food chain Chick-fil-A is reportedly sponsoring two anti-gay marriage conferences. A lot of people are upset about this, especially their competition Chick-on-Chick-fil-A.
The desk segments were Late Night Hashtags and the Oregon Ducks Power Ballad sung by Sebastian Bach. Both were pretty decent and may possibly be worth watching:
Tim McGraw was the first couch guest. He is a country music legend and in the new film Country Strong. Before I review the interview I need to point out why the Roots have won the Best Band Golden Woody two years in a row. When Tim came out they played a piece of the song “Timmy” from a South Park episode many years ago. That’s good stuff right there folks. Anyhoo, Tim was great. He was a very comfortable shade of mellow, funny and actually decently easy to relate to. Here’s a clip:
At the end they played ladder golf. It was good:
Emmy Rossum was the second couch guest. She stars on the new show Shameless. Emmy gave a terrific interview. She told some great stories and had a wonderful sense of humor. Also, I have completely fallen in love with her. Here’s a clip, but remember, I saw her first:
The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger was the musical guest. It doesn’t matter how good or bad they play, their name alone makes them awesome. But, as it turns out, their performance was good.
Great show. I give it:
