10. Conan reviews Tomb Raider
Not many Tomb Raider players would have the patience to teach a clueless Conan how to play the game and put up with commentary like, “My God, stuff falls apart a lot on this island. Hey you know what island we’re on? LAWSUIT ISLAND!”
9. Jon Stewart and Kirsten Schaal talk sexy Halloween costumes
While sexy watermelon and sexy squid costumes may seem over-the-top, Daily Show correspondent Kristen Schaal thinks they just beat around the bush. She debuts a getup that shows what these designers were really trying to convey.
8. Bill Murray dresses up as Liberace to honor the 20th anniversary of the Late Show with David Letterman
To help David Letterman celebrate 20 years of hosting The Late Show, actor Bill Murray – who was the first guest ever on CBS’s Late Show on Aug. 30, 1993 – returned dressed as Liberace and made a dramatic entrance in a white vintage Rolls Royce. Then he whipped out a jackhammer and started digging for a time capsule that he left under the set.
7. Jimmy Fallon slow-jams the news with Brian Williams
NBC Nightly News host Brian Williams helped Jimmy Fallon and The Roots jazz up wonky coverage of the debt ceiling crisis in January. On Boehner’s hard-line stance during negotiations, Fallon responded “Take it from my man ‘Brilly Willy;’ ain’t nothing worse than a soft Boehner.”
6. Stephen Colbert’s dance-off with Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, after Daft Punk cancels a visit to his show
Daft Punk learned the hard way that when you cancel on Stephen Colbert, The Colbert Report host ends up having more fun without you. He looped in actors Jeff Bridges, Bryan Cranston and Matt Damon for a dance to “Get Lucky,” the group’s hit song.
5. Dennis Rodman talks riding the popemobile and North Korea on Leno
The NBA star donned a jacket with a pink fur collar and described to Jay Leno what it was like to party with North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un and 13 girls and ride around Rome in a makeshift popemobile as part of his bizarre globetrotting excursion.
4. Kerry Washington’s SNL monologue, parody of SNL’s diversity problem
Shortly after Saturday Night Live came under fire for the lack of black actresses in the cast, Kerry Washington poked fun at the controversy in a skit where the Scandal star had to dress up as Michelle Obama, Oprah and Beyoncé all at once.
3. Jimmy Kimmel reveals Worst Twerk Ever is a hoax
Good news: the girl who twerked in front of a coffee table with lighted candles is okay. Bad news: Jimmy Kimmel put her up to it and pranked us all.
2. Michelle Obama busts a move with Jimmy Fallon
In this brief history of mothers dancing awkwardly in public and embarrassing their kids, First Lady Michelle Obama and Jimmy Fallon performed classics like “Where Is Your Father? (Get Him Back Here)” and “Reel It In.” But the moves don’t seem so hideous when she does them, right?
1. Craig Ferguson’s moving monologue on the day of the Boston Marathon bombings
“Is anyone else sick of this s***?” The Late Late Show’s Craig Ferguson asked hours after two bombs went off near the Boston Marathon finish line in a moving monologue reminiscent of the one he gave after the 2012 shooting at an Aurora, Colorado, movie theater. Ferguson has personal connections to Bean Town, too; he did his first stand-up act there, and Mayor Thomas M. Menino invited him to speak at Faneuil Hall when he became a U.S. citizen.
