The 5 Funniest TV Clips of the Week (VIDEO)

With the recent influx of fall programming, it's easy to lose track of the amusing moments that TV has to offer. Well, never fear. Our DVRs are working overtime, and we've collected the five funniest moments from the week gone by here. Witness a former President's awkward near-confession, a star's drunken encounter with paparazzi, and an actor's followup to a famously unhinged late-night appearance a year-and-a-half ago.

On 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on COM), Jimmy Carter compares his 1976 presidential campaign to the Tea
Party movement, but notes a significant difference in that he hasn't "been involved with witchcraft." The former President then starts to explain his position on another issue -- perhaps meaning to reiterate his recent support of masturbation -- but, Jon Stewart cuts him off. "I will say this," Stewart said. "Was not expecting you to go there."

Comedian Bill Burr disagrees that motherhood is the most difficult job in his stand-up special 'Bill Burr: Let It Go' (Sun, 11PM ET on COM). Burr argues there are obviously jobs that are harder: "Really? Being a mother is the most difficult job on the planet? Oh yeah. All those mothers who died every year from black lung from inhaling all that coal dust." Then, he offers a reason why women are allowed to make this claim: "Women are just constantly patting themselves on the back about how difficult their lives are, and no one corrects them because they want to f*** them."

Tina Fey tells Jimmy Fallon on 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC) that '30 Rock's' shutout at the Emmys was a godsend because it allowed her more time to go to after-parties and get sloppy drunk. In fact, Fey got so inebriated on Emmy night that she found herself berating the paparazzi. "Yeah! This is what it looks like when New York gets drunk," she shouted at the photogs.

Joaquin Phoenix returns to 'The Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) following his bizarre appearance in February 2009. This time, Phoenix was clean-shaven and coherent, and explains his guest spot was part of an overall ploy documented in Casey Affleck's mockumentary 'I'm Still Here.' David Letterman claims to not be offended by the staged appearance, but there's more than a little irritation apparent in his voice.

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi from 'Jersey Shore' covers Zach Galifianakis with red lipstick kisses on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC). While Galifianakis tries in vain to clean his face, Jimmy Kimmel takes several potshots, saying it looks like he's been "shot in the ear" and that he looks like "a Raggedy Ann Doll."
