Late Night Highlights

Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers:

TMZ has found footage of Beyonce’s sister, Solange, attacking Jay Z in an elevator after the Met Gala last week. Which brings Jay Z’s total to 100 problems.

The Chicago Cubs recorded their 10,000th loss over the weekend. And that’s just this season.

Over the weekend a pair of twins in Ohio were born holding hands. This is just a guest, but I’m betting their last name is “Lannister.” [Extremely sparse audience applause] That’s a very good Game of Thrones joke. Sorry there aren’t more Game of Thrones’ fans here. But we are going to wait a minute for all the Game of Thrones’ fans at home to stop laughing.

A new report found that cocaine use is so high in Britain that it has contaminated their drinking water. If this fact makes you sad, have some British drinking water, you’ll feel much better.

The comedy segment bits were “Fred Talks,” “Seth’s Story,” “The Last Slice of the Pie (Chart) and “Grandma.” Each one had a moment of hilarity, but on the whole none of them were entertaining enough to recommend spending your time on.

Chris O’Dowd was the first couch guest. He’s on Broadway in Of Mice and Men. The interview was great. Chris was happy, excited and told some very amusing stories. He also giggled, scratched his beard a lot and acted goofy, which makes we wonder if there might have been some British water in his cup. Regardless, he was a lot of fun, and the interview is worth watching:

Emma Roberts was the second couch guest. She is one of the stars of the new film Palo Alto. The interview was good. Emma was pleasant, outgoing and had a nice sense of humor. The segment was too short, however. I don’t know why Late Night felt showing four comedy bits was more important than giving Emma more time. She deserved better, and the episode would have been better for it. Here’s the interview:

M.I.A. was the musical guest. She gave an ok performance. I’m sure it was artistic and had some kind of deep meaning, but I didn’t get it. I probably wasn’t supposed to.

Fine show. I give it:
