Can you believe it? It’s Friday already. Cheers to the freaking weekend, am I right? We all know I am clearly wrong, because this summer there is no way to discern between the weekend and weekdays since people with common sense and a shred of compassion for others many of us continue to spend the majority of time indoors. I’ve spent time exploring corners of my apartment I never knew existed, and, yes, that is as sad and lonely as it sounds. While I spent this week getting to know my apartment inside and out, Jimmy Fallon began his week by making the long trek from his gorgeous home with an indoor slide back to 30 Rock, filming The Tonight Show in the studio without an audience. As they say, there’s nothing like summer in the city. Now that Fallon and Conan O’Brien are back in studios, let’s see if that shakes up our top late-night clips of the week. (Spoiler alert: It doesn’t.)

Legendary comedian Martin Short was all smiles when he appeared on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Thursday, despite being in the company of someone with pretty questionable character. That person, Short would jokingly have you believe, was Meyers himself. “I see that you’ve gotten rid of all your Confederate flags. Good for you,” Short said seconds into their Zoom interview. Meyers, who was seemingly not prepared for Short to basically accuse him of being a Proud Boy on national television, laughed it off and continued with the interview. “You and I, I think we click,” Short went on to say to Meyers, “whether it’s SNL, or Late Night, or the back of Jeffery Epstein’s plane.” Before Meyers could even begin to formulate a response, Short asked him, “Who was that lady friend of yours — how did you pronounce her name, Ghislaine?” Just when you thought it couldn’t possibly get any worse for Meyers, Short said, “So you think they should keep the name Redskins. Why is that?” All of these jokes happened within the first two minutes of Short’s interview, an absolute master class in hilariously making your interviewer incredibly uncomfortable in an absurd, borderline evil way.
