After a whirlwind weekend, late-night shows mostly stayed away from the biggest news story of the last week . On Comedy Central, Daily Show host Jon Stewart spent most of his show on the continuing news of the Boston Marathon bombing, including taking a look at the inevitable political opportunism in the wake of the bombing.
The Tonight Show came back from vacation with the usual Jay Leno fare. In between jokes about Kardashians and other celebrities, Leno called Congress names and reached back into the past decade for some jokes about George W. Bush. In fact, on the occasion of his upcoming library dedication , Stephen Colbert spent his second segment mocking Bush, including his decision-making and his relationship with Dick Cheney.
Fast forward to 2:45 to see Colbert explain Bush’s leadership style.
