Play of the Day: The Many Views of Marriage

NBC

Marriage and relationships was a theme for comedians Wednesday evening. In a California speech this week, David Petraeus apologized for his extramarital affairs that ended his time as CIA Director and NBC late-night hosts Jimmy Fallon and Jay Leno had jokes about his troubles. In Washington The Supreme Court listened to arguments on the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act. Conan O’Brien found low-hanging fruit in Bill Clinton’s recent comments on the subject, while Leno hit Rick Perry and Jimmy Kimmel wants to see gay divorce court on TV.

On Comedy Central, Stephen Colbert found sharia law in an unexpected place, while The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart looked at the role of government. Fallon also had some news about George W. Bush’s presidential library and Barack Obama’s appointment of Julia Pierson to head Secret Service.

Fast forward to 3:00 to see how Congress is getting government bikini-ready.
