By Jove! The guest-star game this week on late night TV was on fire! Louis CK, Edward Snowden, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Peter Dinklage, The Rock, Michelle Obama—what happened? Were we especially good viewers and so the variety show producers decided to reward us? Whatever the reason, this deck is stacked. We’ve got everything from the latest crazes in mom dancing, as brought to you by Michelle Obama, to a fantastic discussion of government encroachment on privacy with Edward Snowden. All this goodness has got us shaking it like the Rock’s close personal friend, Tay-Tay (you’ll see what we mean).
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver—Government Surveillance (Above)
John Oliver frames the debate over government surveillance around dick pics, then has Edward Snowden explain it to him. This may be his best work yet.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon—Evolution of Mom Dancing Part 2 (w/ Jimmy Fallon & Michelle Obama)
And if you want to see Mz. Michelle be best girlfriends with Jimmy, you can also watch her dish about what music the kids are listening to here.
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart—Peter Dinklage
The Peter Dinklage Rakish Sex Appeal meter is maxing out in this interview. Does he care deeply? Does he not care at all? We don’t know, but those devil-may-care brown locks in his eyes will keep you guessing. So close to Game of Thrones!
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon—The Whisper Challenge with Julia Louis-Dreyfus
Confusing “Hoda Kotb” with “Oh, God help me” will forever live as one of the best mistakes of all time for so many reasons. So, so many reasons. For more of Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Tonight Show appearance, because there’s no way you have anything better to do, click here.
Saturday Night Live—Neurotology Music Video
The sick part is that this sketch isn’t even as funny as the real thing! But don’t worry. It’s still, very, very funny on its own.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon—Game of Thrones Cast Sings ‘I’m So Excited’
Normally we don’t associate the Pointer Sisters’ brand of “excited” with so much bloodshed and backstabbing and stuff, but yet this mash-up nails exactly how we’re feeling going into the weekend.
Lip Sync Battle—Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Shake It Off’ vs. Jimmy Fallon’s ‘Jump in the Line’
It’s the giggle! When The Rock nails the giggle it’s all over for us.
Sesame Street—Game of Chairs
Hahahahaha Melisandre hahahaha!
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart—The Daily Show‘s Once and Future Host
Even if you don’t want to do it for Trevor Noah, do it for Jon.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon—Louis CK Ruined Jimmy’s Chance to Star On The Dana Carvey Show
It’s likely title of this video is the only time we’ll ever read “Louis CK ruined” and want to keep clicking, because Louis CK makes everything better. There’s another segment from his Tonight Show appearance called “Louis CK Performed a Bit with NYC’s Mayor with Poop in His Pants,” and we can’t imagine you’d want to miss that.
Late Night with Seth Meyers—Seth Brings Jon Snow to a Dinner Party
Not that we don’t love him on Game of Thrones (we love you on Game of Thrones, Kit Harington!), but this is the best Jon Snow has ever been.
Bonus Track: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver—Edward Snowden on Passwords
John Oliver’s Snowden conversation has bonus material! Watch the two discuss passwords if you didn’t get enough of this duo during the “dick pick program” convo.
