Late Night Hosts Address Election Results in Heartfelt Monologues

9 November 2016 8:48 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

In response to Donald Trump's victory over Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, several late night talk show hosts shared their takes on the unexpected results and what was in store for America in the coming months.

Conan O'Brien came out Wednesday night with a monologue aimed at helping America heal, and delivered some truly amazing perspective on this year's election results.

"For years I’ve come out every night and asked how you’re doing, but I’ve never meant it," O'Brien said. "Tonight I actually mean it. Does anyone need a hug?'"

O'Brien, who admitted that his job "just got easier for the next four years," went on to explain the vitriolic nature of this year's election through the lens of history.

"We have been here before. We have had bitter angry elections for 200 years," O'Brien explained »

Seth Meyers on Trump’s Victory: ‘I’ve Been Wrong About Him At Every Turn’ — Watch

9 November 2016 5:41 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

On Wednesday night’s edition of “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” Meyers responded to the election of Donald Trump to the presidency, and struck a slightly hopeful tone.

“One thing that makes me hopeful is we know from interviews he’s given over the years that he has, at any given point, held every position on every issue,” Meyers said. “He’s been pro-choice, pro-life, for the Iraq War, against the Iraq War, pretty much his only consistent position has been anti-Rosie O’Donnell. So I’m hopeful that he’s not actually a racist, and that he just used racist rhetoric to court voters. Because when you’re courting someone, you’re always willing to pretend you’re something you’re not. For example, when you first start dating someone, you’ll agree to go apple picking.”

Emmys 2016: Who’s the Possible Spoiler in the Best Actor Race for Limited Series/TV Movie?

14 September 2016 11:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Dci John Luther (Idris Elba) speaks in terse, staccato sentences, as if to match the impression his heavy gait and muscular frame leave on his interlocutors: “Aight mate?” the owner of a gangland watering hole asks him in the fourth installment of “Luther.” “Lookin’ a bit militant there.”

Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch), by contrast, speaks in stem-winding, breathless paragraphs, holding his reedy figure still as if to conserve energy for his acumen: “You’re clearly acclimatized to never getting to the end of a sentence,” he tells Dr. John Watson (Martin Freeman) in “Sherlock: The Abominable Bride.” “We’ll get along splendidly.”

This battle of British detectives, in which we might include “The Night Manager”‘s Jonathan Pine (Tom Hiddleston), recruited by British intelligence to infiltrate the inner circle of an international arms dealer (Hugh Laurie), points to a few of the complicating factors in the race for Outstanding »

Don’t Tell Paul Giamatti That John Adams Isn’t in Hamilton — Oh Wait, Seth Meyers Just Did

22 January 2016 8:08 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Shhh! Paul Giamatti hasn't seen Hamilton yet, and he's looking forward to seeing how the hit musical portrays John Adams, whom he won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for playing in the HBO mini-series of the same name. So ... should anyone warn him that John Adams isn't in Hamilton at all, except for one brief part where Alexander Hamilton tells him to "sit down, John, you fat motherf*cker!" (A longer version with more insults was cut for time.) What's that? Seth Meyers just did that? Uh-oh. Luckily, Giamatti was fine with it, admitting that John Adams "was not a very good president." Cool, Seth Meyers, yeah, no problem. Just maybe ask next time. »
