Bring on the Jokes: Late-Night Shows React to Donald Trump Victory

Superfan TV

The late-night shows reacted to Tuesday’s election results when they returned to TV on Wednesday night, and while all of them had their own version of a serious moment with their audience, there were also plenty of jokes.

On The Tonight Show, host Jimmy Fallon played to our nostalgia with a Steve Urkel reference, while James Corden on The Late Late Show took the opportunity to poke fun at third-party candidate Gary Johnson.

Seth Meyers, who at one point held back tears while addressing the women of the nation, opened his evening up with a reminder of Donald Trump’s disgusting words that were caught on camera when he was on a bus with Access Hollywood host Billy Bush.

But perhaps Conan O’Brien handled things the best. He not only made a joke about calling up and congratulating his high school bully but also brought out a very special treat to make the Conan audience, and those of us watching at home, feel a little bit better about the whole thing.
