With the State of the Union upcoming, Jimmy Fallon and Jay Leno took time to poke at Congress, while most shows focused on Pope Benedict XVI’s announcement that he will be retiring at the end of February. The Daily Show, Craig Ferguson and Fallon all speculated on the next person to lead the Catholic Church. Bill Clinton was up for a Grammy Award Sunday, and few are better fodder for late-night humor than Clinton. Meanwhile, with Bush family e-mails having been hacked, The Colbert Report and The Tonight Show skewered George W. Bush.

Fast forward to 3:20 to see Stephen Colbert analyze the former president’s paintings.
