On 'The Daily Show' gave viewers a video parody mashup of Sean Hannity's very chatty head on Eminem's body during Eminem's recent anti-Trump rap.
“This is stuff, I promise you, you can’t get anywhere else,” Hannity crowed at the start of his show. To which we can only say: Thank God.

Sean Hannity looks at Donald Trump the way a golden retriever gazes at his master, with ardent longing and wet loyalty. The dog had his day on Thursday in an exclusive “Second After David Muir And ABC News” interview on Fox News’s Hannity. When Trump said for the 500th time that the media is “hostile … angry … very dishonest,” Hannity practically fell off his chair in his haste to give his assent: “I said journalism’s dead, so we agree!” (Indeed, Hannity exists weeknights at 10 to prove its host’s assertion.) A bit later, when the president brought up Iran, Sean chattered, “I actually agree with you wholeheartedly about the Iran deal.” Going to a commercial, Hannity said, “Coming up, Donald Trump takes me inside the Oval Office” in a tone that made it sound as though his favorite uncle was about to sneak him onto the big-boy roller coaster.

On The Late Show on Thursday night, host Stephen Colbert used that day’s resignation of Fox News chairman Roger Ailes to revel in Ailes’ downfall (Ailes is facing allegations of sexual harassment) and to bring back an old friend. Jon Stewart emerged from beneath Colbert’s desk. Then he ousted Colbert and took over that desk, delivering what was essentially a new version of his old Daily Show editorials.
Stephen Colbert hosted what he billed a “Live Late Show Post-Game Super-Show” on Sunday night that boasted a long guest list whose most significant component turned out to be Megyn Kelly. Early on in the show, Colbert tossed the football out of camera range to “the tall guy with the really big ears”—who proved to be President Obama, catching the football in the White House. An interview with Tina Fey and Margot Robbie, together to promote their new movie Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, was interrupted by a satellite interview from the site of the Super Bowl with MVP Von Miller.
