Late Night Roundup: Stewart, Colbert, and Conan Cover the Election
The Daily Show and The Colbert Report covered the election live last night and were able to announce Barack Obama’s victory by the time the first show was a few minutes in. Here’s the star-studded intro to The Daily Show, featuring Soledad O’Brien, Patrick Stewart, and Anderson Cooper and his golden saxophone.
With the big networks pre-empting their late night shows for non-comedic election coverage, TBS’s Conan was the only other late night show to tackle the election last night (although the episode was taped in the afternoon). Check out some election highlights from last night’s live installments of The Daily Show and Colbert, and pre-taped Conan after the jump because we watching videos online of live news the next day is the way things are meant to be.
