Late night hosts picked a bad week to go on vacation. While Seth Meyers, James Corden and Jimmy Kimmel spent time with their children, Trump got raided. If we ever needed a “closer look” at anything, this was it. I’m sure Meyers will do his best to recap what happened while he was away and find the best way to twist the narrative into a “Rudy Giuliani married his cousin” joke. Kimmel had guest hosts spanning his timeslot, with David Alan Grier receiving much of Trump’s big news and playing a doorman at Mar-a-Lago on it. He brought all his Tony winning energy to it – hats off.

In late night news (which seems to be a recurring segment this summer), Jon Batiste leaves The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Batiste has been out pretty much all summer The purple color and win Grammys. But now, officially, he won’t win the E in his EGOT presumed to be a conductor. Louis Cato will be the new leader of Stay Human, The Late Show band and No. 1 place to hide an eagle or a St. Vincent or one guy in a cowboy hat. So that covers who was not late at night this week. Let’s talk about who was.

One producer said “Let’s put Adam Pally, Mindy Kaling and Andy Cohen together and let the weird energy really flow.” They should have a bottle of champagne, or a smack on the head, ’cause it was weird WWHL. Pally commented on how much he wants to fuck Ramona Singer, how Andy Cohen likes to talk about his desire to fuck Ramona Singer and how much he wants to be in Legally blonde 3. Cohen mostly tried to pry details from Kaling about the aforementioned trio, and Pally’s wife sat quietly in the audience watching it all go down. Live.

Megan Thee Stallion’s 4oe French Bulldog is a star. Let’s not mince our words. He knows how to find his light, he does tricks and he speaks very well as a talk show guest. Meg co-hosted The show tonight the night his new album was released, intervening on the recurring office track “Thank You Notee” and helping Natalia Dyer interview, but 4oe stole the show. Meg was also a fun interviewer for Dyer, showing her enthusiasm for stranger things and demanding that episodes of the series become even longer. Please, Duffer Bros, don’t listen to him on this one.

Kaling doubles down on this week’s list, as she was an agent of chaos on every show she’s done. On WWHL, she was mostly Pally’s facilitator, but on The late show she said she was sad to end I have never because she loves money. Not its cast, not the story, not the portrayal, but cash. Hearing himself say those words as they rolled out of his mouth, Kaling immediately (and adorably) began to backtrack. She said she liked the money, joked about editing it, and even volunteered to show her tax returns to the Last show audience so they could determine if she was in fact wealthy. She’s certainly rich, but it’s important to keep in touch with the common man – who also doesn’t want his job to end primarily because he loves money. Or at the very least needs it for goods and services.

A classic talk show/award show premise is “Likable Host Is a Pesky Little Shit Inside the World of ______”. Carrie Bradshaw enters The Matrix at the 2000 MTV Movie Awards, when basically everyone was on Office at the 2011 Emmy Awards, and James Corden visits the White House: This all falls into the Pesky Little Shit genre. Stephen Colbert added a new entry in the PLS (not to be confused with LSP or PLL) canon by invading Breakup. Steve C., as his innie is known, thinks he’s on Office and insists that Irving dance to Smash Mouth. Not since a robot pissed on him Was John Turturro so disrespected.

Jimmy Kimmel had another guest host this week in addition to David Alan Grier, Philadelphia is always sunnyis Rob McElhenney. A huge getting accommodation for his stay was his wife, Kaitlin Olson. Olson spent almost the entire interview soaking his wife for how few Emmy names he compared to her, how weirdly negative her dad can be, and how enthusiastic he is about praising her as an actor. / spouse. McElhenney tried to be sweet, but Olson kept it punchy for the rest of us who aren’t married to her. Whether Sunny ever dies, the two could have a really good late night show together. If they can find a babysitter.

See everything
