  • Tonight JT solidified his reputation as the most overrated host. He brings nothing new to the show and his infamous "energy" is easily overshadowed by his equally infamous ego.

    • Seth Meyers: Police in California arrested a man who tried to smuggle songbirds into the US by strapping more than a dozen birds to his legs and trying to walk out of the Los Angeles Airport. Police became suspicious when they noticed the man was twittering without a blackberry.

    • Seth Meyers: Pope Benedict on Friday began his first trip to the Middle East in hopes that the Catholic Church can play a role in the region's peace process. And because it's the Middle East, he traveled in the official Popemobile inside another Popemobile.

    • Seth Meyers: Louis Caldera, the White House Aide who authorized the controversial photograph of Air Force One over Manhattan, resigned on Friday. May I suggest that they replace him with PhotoShop? You don't have to fly Air Force One over Manhattan to get a picture of Air Force One over Manhattan. (montage of photos) Look, here's Air Force One at the pyramids. Here it is in a crowded elevator. And here it is on the red carpet with the Space Shuttle. And of course, there is the popular children's book, "Where's Air Force One?"

    • Seth Meyers: Peter Sarsgaard and Maggie Gyllenhaal were married this past weekend. Before the wedding, the couple was registered at Craate & Baaryhl... Peter Sarsgaard and Maggie Gyllenhaal were married this past weekend. The wedding video was already nominated for an Independent Spirit Award... (light laughter) Oh, there's more. Peter Sarsgaard and Maggie Gyllenhaal were married this past weekend. Here's their official celebrity couple nickname: "Aaarraaa"... (looking at another camera) New York Governor David Pater- (looking at the previous camera) Peter Sarsgaard and Maggie Gyllenhaal were married this past weekend. They wrote their own vowels.
