Larry Wilmore, Issa Rae, Marina Franklin, and More Discuss Black Women in the Workplace

To close out Black History Month, last night The Nightly Show explored some of the many issues black women face today. Wilmore was joined by The Mis-Adventures of Awkward Black Girl's Issa Rae — who currently has a pilot order with Wilmore at HBO — as well as Fordham professor Christina Greer, New York Live's Jacque Reid, and comedian Marina Franklin to tackle Patricia Arquette's Oscars speech and some of the obstacles black women face in workforce. Rae's thoughts: "If I were a white guy, I would rule this world right now." Watch the panel discuss black women and dating below:

Conan O'Brien Tells Jon Stewart About His Trip to Cuba

Conan O'Brien visited The Daily Show last night to talk about next week's Conan special in Cuba, and it turns out that O'Brien and his crew almost didn't make it into the country and got stuck in a tiny building watching Gilmore Girls in Spanish. Thanks to some luck and friendly Canadians, the whole trip worked out just fine. The Daily Show also dedicated its Moment of Zen to O'Brien in a throwback clip of him on The Jon Stewart Show in 1994:

Billy Eichner Introduces Conan O'Brien to the World of Grindr

Having already mastered the world of Tinder, last night Conan O'Brien decided to give Grindr a try with the invaluable help of Billy Eichner, who helps O'Brien set up the best Grindr profile possible ("Frecklefucker" is a pretty catchy name) and connect Conan with his very first man date.

Will Forte Shares More "Second Chance Theatre" Ideas on 'Late Night'

Will Forte paid a visit to his old friend Seth Meyers last night, and the two looked back at some of Forte's cut SNL sketches — including a metal detector sketch called "Finders Keepers" and a very meta "Falconer" sketch with Rainn Wilson — to possibly revisit in an upcoming "Second Chance Theatre" segment. Meyers also played a brief clip of Forte giving a speech as his white supremacist character Hamilton at Meyers' wedding rehearsal dinner, which you can check out below:

Conan O'Brien and Howard Stern Talk Depression, Late Night, and 'SNL'

To promote his upcoming Conan special from Cuba, Conan O'Brien stopped by The Howard Stern Show this morning, and the result is a lengthy and fantastic interview that covers O'Brien's entire career, from his first days in college to writing for SNL and The Simpsons all the way to his choice to rebuild his new TBS show Conan rather than continue the bits he made famous during his NBC years. O'Brien also opened up about his struggles with depression — here's a particularly great quote about his early days on NBC late night:

This is an absolute true story: It was the first couple weeks of the Late [...]

The 'Parks and Recreation' Cast Talk the Series Finale on 'Late Night'

Watch the Parks and Rec cast talk about the finale above, then check out more clips from their appearance below:

'Last Week Tonight' Explores the Dangers of Elected Judges

An Alabama judge recently defied a federal ruling by banning same-sex marriages in the state, so Last Week Tonight took a closer look at the world of elected US judges — who mostly run unopposed — and why electing judges in the world of Super PACs and expensive, ridiculous, and very "Wade Blasingame"-like campaign ads might not be such a great idea.

Colin Quinn Thinks Bill Hader Is Too Kind to Be Trusted

Here's a clip from Colin Quinn's visit to last night's Late Night, where he and Meyers talked about his new web series Cop Show, upcoming book, some of the Oscars jokes he offered Neil Patrick Harris during Sunday's ceremony, and his stance on nice comedians: "I don't trust kind people in comedy. There's something weird about it." Unsurprisingly, this makes Bill Hader the most untrustworthy person in the world.

Will Forte Is Very Proud of His Beard-Growing Skills

Ahead of the premiere of his new Fox show this Sunday, Will Forte stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday to talk about the impressive beard he grew for the role in six months. Watch another clip from Forte's interview below, in which he gets to meet one of his current TV idols:

Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani has recently come under fire for some offensive comments he made about President Obama's patriotism for America and that he didn't "live through September 11th," and Jon Stewart took him to task on last night's Daily Show to give him a friendly little reminder: "You know you're not the mayor of 9/11, right? You don't own 9/11. You don't own anything but the unique willingness to crassly exploit it."
