Is there any doubt that Late Night TV is in the midst of a Renaissance? I love Kimmel’s fictitious beef with Damon that goes back to when his former girlfriend, Sarah Silverman shared this hilarious video, I’m F*cking Matt Damon.

I’ve not been following the details of ‘DeflateGate’, but this video from Jimmy Kimmel Live last night is hilarious.  Love all those local Boston actors.

The Colbert Report – The Word – President Obama

Apparently I’m one of the few (24% according to Rasmussen’s Presidential Tracking Poll), who strongly approve of President Obama’s performance.  My only real ongoing beef with Obama is in the realm of foreign policy – but even that is all relative when I think back to his predecessor’s foreign policy.

I love this clip from The Colbert Report and if you’ve not had a chance to see it perhaps you should.  It is not only very savvy of him when you think about the demographic he is reaching but also very self-deprecating; something I appreciate.
