Pope Francis’ election remains the biggest news on late-night TV. Conan O’Brien lauded the pontiff for bringing back a famous American institution, The Late Show’s David Letterman examined his voting block and Late Night host Jimmy Fallon referenced Francis’ early life as a bouncer. The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno gave viewers a history lesson on the origins of the papal selection process.

In domestic news, Letterman continues to examine new TSA restrictions and even referenced the passenger who was strapped to his seat in January via duct tape. Fallon was on the news that the Obama administration spends more than $250,000 a year on calligraphy and Leno even looked at Michelle Obama’s upcoming Vogue cover.

Fast forward to 2:05 to see which magazine cover wants to feature Vice President Joe Biden.
