Olivia Wilde performed in the Actatholon on Late Night, which was fun (and impressive).
Jimmy and Gabrielle Union did some morning musical announcements which was cute as always.
And as usual the weekly recaps of The Daily Show and The Nightly Show.
One of the more beautiful performances was Misty Copeland dancing to Yo-Yo Ma's music.
Fred Armisen very accurately described an Oxygen series.
And as you may know, Jey Leno stopped by The Tonight Show earlier this week (and I was not ok with that). But then Shaq basically made up for all that with these two segments.
And the weekly recaps of The Daily Show and The Nightly Show.
Meanwhile, over on Fallon, Black Simon & Garfunkel (& real Garfunkel) sang "Can't Feel My Face" & Jimmy & Julianne Moore played Box of Lies.
Of course, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah began, but for some reason Comedy Central does not want you watching clips unless you're a citizen of the US, just like its host.
“Dad has left…and now we have a stepdad. And he’s black”.
Trevor Noah decided to explain how he got the job. It was offered to Americans and women and since they rejected it, it is now covered by an immigrant. Just like all other American jobs.
He discussed the Pope, John Boehner and water being found on Mars. Topical.
He focused quite a bit on taking over from Jon Stewart, but as long as this is the only time they do it this hard, I think it worked well.
His report with the audience and his confidence on camera is proving that he is adequate to take over from Jon Stewart. Considering they’ve kept many of the same writers, the tone of the show remains and he delivers it as well as he possibly could. I’m impressed, and looking forward to more.
