What You Missed Last Night: 'Lost' Secrets, Dunking Ninjas, Horse Singers & Starbucks

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 31st 2010 4:04PM
Jimmy Kimmel does one of the best late night monologues. Where Letterman just has a handful of jokes to get him through to the rest of the show and Leno bombards us with 37,000 jokes (and both are fine), Kimmel does it differently. His monologue is almost like a blog, filled with clips from other TV shows, sketches, YouTube finds, etc. Last night's was a good example, as Kimmel covered everything from last night's episode of 'Lost' to guns being allowed at Starbucks to Shannen Doherty's refusal to do his show last night after getting booted off 'Dancing with the Stars.'

What You Missed Last Night: Brian Williams Slow Jams the News

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 30th 2010 1:00PM
If Brian Williams isn't careful, he might be known as a funny comic who also does the news instead of the other way around. Last night he popped up again on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' to help Fallon slow jam the news. Williams can keep a straight face but Fallon can't.

What You Missed Last Night: Harry Smith's Top Ten List

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 23rd 2010 1:40PM
If you missed the big, um, event last week, Harry Smith had a colonoscopy live on 'The CBS Early Show.' So of course David Letterman had to have him come on last night and do the Top Ten List for the "Top Ten Things Going Through Harry Smith's Mind During His Televised Colonoscopy."

What You Missed Last Night: Kimmel on Letterman Talking About Leno

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 17th 2010 11:39AM
'Jimmy Kimmel Live' is in reruns this week and that means that Kimmel is free to go on some East Coast talk shows. Last night he was on 'The Late Show' and talked about the whole Leno/Conan/NBC fiasco and his part in all of it. It seems to me that Letterman just enjoyed the whole thing, not in a mean spirited way but just the way that he says here, because it reminded him of old times at comedy clubs.

What You Missed Last Night: Crumbums and Fatcats on 'The Daily Show'

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 16th 2010 11:34AM
Jon Stewart goes after both political parties in this clip from last night's episode of 'The Daily Show': Nancy Pelosi, Eric Massa, John Boehner, and several others get some ribbing from Stewart. Then it turns into a discussion of how Washington politics is just like professional wrestling and ends with Stewart on top of his desk pleading for his life.

What You Missed Last Night: Groping Along with Jon Stewart

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 11th 2010 1:24PM
I don't care about the politics of this clip, I just think the whole thing about the shower and the birthday party and all that is pretty damn odd and funny. Last night on 'The Daily Show,' Jon Stewart talked about the resignation of Congressman Eric Massa and his appearance on Glenn's Beck's show. It involves tickling.

What You Missed Last Night: Michael Emerson Reveals a 'Lost' Secret to Kimmel

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 10th 2010 12:35PM
I thought last night's episode of 'Lost' was one of the best ever: exciting, unpredictable, with several developments that moves the story along and it even had a cliffhanger. Michael Emerson deserves an Emmy for this episode alone. He also showed up on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' to reveal, um, something. (Here's the YouTube version if you can't see what's below.)

What You Missed Last Night: Jon Stewart Surfs Chatroulette!

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 5th 2010 3:04PM
Whenever there's a new web site that's getting a lot of attention, you can bet that every single news show, opinion show, and morning show will be "on the case" to find out what the "kids" are "obsessed" with now. The latest is Chatroulette (we even talked about it on a recent podcast), and last night Jon Stewart surfed the site on 'The Daily Show.'

What You Missed Last Night: Sarah Palin, Stand-Up Comic

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 3rd 2010 10:39AM
You won't see Sarah Palin on 'The Late Show' anytime soon, but things are friendlier over at 'The Tonight Show' so she was a guest last night. Not only did she talk to Jay about politics, her hand notes, and how the press treats both of them, she did a stand-up routine.

She did a good job, though it would have been funnier if we didn't know she was the one coming out. Way to kill the joke, Jay.

What You Missed Last Night: Jon Stewart on Rick Sanchez

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 2nd 2010 2:37PM
Yesterday we showed you Rick Sanchez's, um, "excitable" coverage of the Chile earthquake on Saturday. Last night, Jon Stewart talked about it too. The clip below ends perfectly, by showing footage of another classic Rick Sanchez "report," the time he got tasered by police.

For the record, Sanchez talked about the way he acted on his show yesterday. His apology/explanation was just as clueless as his reporting on Saturday.

What You Missed Last Night: Stephen and Ed Colbert At The Olympics

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 23rd 2010 2:02PM
The commentary and analysis of The Olympics is more interesting than the Olympics themselves, like Joel's post about 'Today' and their coverage of the Games and the one about the ratings. Also, this clip from 'The Colbert Report.' Stephen is doing his shows this week from Vancouver, and last night he had his brother (an attorney) on to let him know what he can and cannot say about the Olympics so NBC doesn't get sue him.

What You Missed Last Night: Tracy Morgan on Oprah and the Olympics

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 16th 2010 11:27AM
A Tracy Morgan interview is truly an unpredictable event, as Joel found out last year. Often you don't know if you're talking to Tracy Morgan or Tracy Jordan from '30 Rock,' so anything is possible. Last night he was on 'The Late Show' and talked about Oprah Winfrey, 'The Wolfman,' and why he doesn't watch the Winter Olympics. They could probably use this on '30 Rock.'

What You Missed Last Night: The Last 'Jay Leno Show'

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 10th 2010 11:29AM
If you missed the very last episode of 'The Jay Leno Show' last night, here are the "highlights."

Because Leno is going back to 'The Tonight Show,' this wasn't a big farewell. It was more like "yeah, this is the last episode, see ya later" (Leno returns to late night after the Olympics).

Ashton Kutcher told Jay the whole 'Jay Leno Show'/'Tonight Show' plot was one of his punks, Bob Costas made a joke comparing Jay to the L.A. Clippers, Jay showed some "best" moments from the show, and Donald Trump told Jay "You're Fired" (which continues to be annoying - Leno wasn't fired, he's simply getting another multi-million dollar position in the same company).

Here's the whole episode:

What You Missed Last Night: Leno on That Super Bowl Ad with Dave & Oprah

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 9th 2010 1:29PM
I don't think there's anyone who has been harder on Jay Leno over the years than me. I'm a Letterman guy all the way, but there's something oddly...comforting about having Jay back at 11:35. And you know what? Seeing Jay talk about how that Super Bowl ad with David Letterman and Oprah came about is almost touching. It seems like Jay was truly moved by Letterman asking him to be in the ad, even if it was mostly just to do something funny and surprising.

Jay talked about it on the show last night. (For the record, Dave talked about it too, but just made a few jokes, including one about how the people who played Jay and Oprah in the ad did a great job).

What You Missed Last Night: Jimmy Fallon's TV Mash-Ups

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 5th 2010 3:29PM
One of the things I love about "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' is Fallon's enthusiasm. When he laughs hard at something, it's real, sincere goofiness, not a fake showbiz laugh. Like last night when he introduced TV Mash-Ups, NBC's big plan to get back on top.

Of course, there's no way in hell I'd watch shows called 'Hard Nips' and 'Front Butt.'
