Play of the Day: The Royal Baby’s Impact on Global Politics and Economics

Comedy Central

NASA released photos of Earth recently taken from hundreds of millions of miles away, with our planet as a small dot. That gave Late Show host David Letterman opportunity to joke about things one can see from space, equating a popular New Jersey politician with the Great Wall of China.

The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno looked at the Transportation Security Administration’s Pre✓ program, suggesting that the TSA is looking to grab anything it can from passengers. He also mentioned the newest attempt by the Senate to replace paper money with coins in the United States, joking about the worth of American currency.

On The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert checked out some old news, touching on President Barack Obama’s comments last week on race and wondering if Obama knows why he’s being followed now. Colbert also looked at the story from last month of Domino’s testing out a pizza delivery drone and explained the lack of wisdom in complaining about drone delivery times.

The Royal Baby’s arrival remains the main topic on late-night TV monologues. Conan O’Brien wondered if the baby’s economic impact could possibly help a failing American city and highlighted Obama’s reaction to the birth. The Daily Show looked at the baby’s registry and its impact on global politics. Jessica Williams explained that someone could possibly end up getting the baby some impressive items.

Fast forward to 3:40 to see Williams explain what gift a big spender could get the baby.
