It was quite a week for TV clips. Politicians from each side of the aisle gave late night comedians some excellent material to work with, from Sarah Palin's interesting take on Paul Revere's ride to Anthony Weiner's embarrassing sexts. We also bid a heartfelt farewell to an icon of daytime TV. Other awesome stuff happened too. Check out our 5 favorite clips of the week and vote for your personal choice in our weekly poll.
Stephen Colbert tried to faithfully re-enacted Sarah Palin's version of Paul Revere's ride on a plastic electric pony while ringing bells, trying to fire his musket, and warning the British ... that the British were coming.
Meredith Vieira bid farewell to the 'Today' show, and they surprised her with a giant flash-mob/lib-dub of Journey's 'Don't Stop Believing.' Even Abe Vgota showed up! It made us tear up a little bit.
Jon Stewart, in a sketch making fun of Anthony Weiner's bizzaro press conference, sliced his hand open after punching a blender. He gamely finished out the bit before bleeding out, with some assistance from John Oliver.
Kathie Lee Gifford stopped by 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' to engage in one of her favorite past-times: binge-drinking wine. The two played a game of wine-pong, in which she schooled him, and afterwards, feeling good and drunk, they made out. It was like college all over again!
Barbara Walters broke down her thoughts on Weinger-gate. Guess what? She thought Anthony Weiner's X-rated photo was flattering. We had no idea Babs was such a minx. Thank the lord she's not on Twitter.
