Play of the Day: Hillary Clinton testifies

January 25, 2013 After mulling over Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's testimony for a day, the late-night show hosts all weighed in.

Play of the Day: The Daily Show does Israeli election ads

January 24, 2013 Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart unearthed some terrific campaign videos from the recent Israeli elections.

Shalom, this is...

Play of the Day: Inauguration madness

January 23, 2013 Most late-night shows were bumped for Inauguration Day on Monday, but they got their chance last night to get in some jokes on everything from Malia Obama photo-bombing her parents, to the lack of hopelessness in President Obama's speech, to the first couple's stiff inaugural ball dancing. With Fox News...

Play of the Day: Obama is 'King Gun Snatcher the Magnificent'

January 18, 2013 King, tyrant, Constitution destroyer — President Obama was repeatedly called all of these names this week after announcing his proposed reforms on gun control.

Play of the Day: ATF and its YouTube channel

January 17, 2013 Last night, The Daily Show addressed the declawed Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, which hasn't been able to have a director confirmed by Congress in six years.

Play of the Day: How to protect yourself from the government

January 15, 2013 Most of the late-night monologues were light on political humor last night, but Stephen Colbert decided to devote an entire segment to a "rational" conversation on gun control, which he called "Stephen Colbert's Double Barrel Blam-o-Rama." Colbert called out CNN talkshow host Piers Morgan for not answering his guests important...

Play of the Day: Welcome to Citadel, Idaho

Play of the Day: Muskets for all!

January 9, 2013 Jon Stewart weighed in on the gun control debate last night — it was the only issue he addressed during his half-hour show. The other late-night hosts mostly stayed away from politics. David Letterman did, however, uncover the main driver behind the nation's debt. Fast-forward to 2:15 to see what...

Play of the Day: Fixing the debt ceiling with... a coin?

January 8, 2013 Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert both returned from their extended breaks last night shocked at the abundance of missed late-night humor opportunities over the past three weeks.

Play of the Day: New Congress, same dysfunction

January 4, 2013 The late-night shows welcomed the 113th Congress to a new round of jokes last night. Jimmy Fallon praised the swearing in of a record 20 female senators.
