CBS gave its late-night shows a two-day break for the NCAA basketball tournament and the cable late-night shows are on vacation, so NBC and ABC were the only networks running late-night comedy. On NBC, The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno had exclusive video of the heckler yelling at President Barack Obama during a speech he gave this week in Jerusalem. Leno and Late Night host Jimmy Fallon also touched on recent moves by the Republican Party to find more voters in minority groups for jokes.


On ABC, Jimmy Kimmel spent some time -- and we have it all here in the video -- on the hacker Guccifer’s newest release of former president George W. Bush’s paintings to Gawker. Kimmel cannot get enough of the paintings and used the news to make some jokes at Dick Cheney and Joe Biden.


Fast forward to 3:40 to watch Kimmel play a game with his audience about the paintings.
