Late Night Highlights
Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon:
Here’s a campaign update. President Obama has a new ad that hits Mitt Romney’s business career by calling him an “Outsourcer-in-Chief.” Romney responded with an ad of his own made by an excellent company in India.
Starting this weekend cab drivers in Chicago will charge an extra $50 to passengers who throw up in the backseat. Or, as passengers put it, “Front seat it is.”
A family in Colorado was reunited with their lost bulldog after it was found 500 miles away. In response the bulldog was like, “Geez, can’t these people take a hint?”
Ford has a new technology to help keep a car in its lane on the highway. Yeah, they say it works great until you want to exit the highway.
The desk segments were Hashtags and a spin class song with LMFAO. Hashtags was uncharacteristically weak, but the spin class song was great:
Salma Hayek was the first couch guest. She is in the upcoming film Savages. The interview was great. Salma was a wonderful guest. She was pleasant, funny and told amusing stories. The only thing I didn’t like about the interview was Jimmy’s fake Mexican accent. I know he was trying to be funny, but he didn’t succeed. Still, the interview is worth watching:
Aaron Sorkin was the second couch guest. He is the creator of the new show Network. The interview was subpar. I was disappointed. It was short and pretty much just a plug for his new show. I’m a huge fan of Aaron’s work, so if you’re going to interview the guy, give him the time he deserves to talk about some of what he’s accomplished.
Tito, Jackie, Jermaine and Marlon Jacksonwere the third couch guests. They are currently on tour. The interview was fine, but, much like with Aaron Sorkin, it was much too short. These guys are music legends. Jimmy could have done an entire show with just these guys. Instead all they got was six minutes. Heck, I think one of them didn’t even get a chance to speak. Sigh. Here’s the interview:
LMFAO was the musical guest. They gave a pretty entertaining performance.
The show had quantity, but sacrificed quality. I give it:
