Welcome to Best of Late Night, a rundown of the previous night’s highlights that lets you sleep — and lets us get paid to watch comedy. Here are the 50 best movies on Netflix right now.
Thursday’s holiday was the big topic on “Thanksgiving Eve.”
Stephen Colbert focused on Fox News’s coverage of the rising price of raw turkey, saying the network has “a festive tradition over there, and it’s blaming everything on Joe Biden.” This year, it was the former Congressman Jason Chaffetz’s claims that inflation under the president has driven up the price of turkeys and postage stamps.
“That’s right. Thanks to Joe Biden’s greed, it’s even more expensive than ever to buy a raw turkey, cover it in stamps and send it to a relative,” Colbert said. “Thanks a lot, Joe.”
“Tonight is actually known as Drinksgiving, and a lot of people are going to reconnect with their high school ex. If you watch closely tomorrow, you’ll notice half the parade is just people doing the walk of shame.” — JIMMY FALLON
“Of course, the difference between Drinksgiving and Thanksgiving is drinking for fun versus drinking for survival.” — JIMMY FALLON
“Yeah, it’s nice to let loose on Drinksgiving, but it’s not good when your friend’s, like, ‘I also celebrate Drinksmas, Drinkakah, Drinkwanzaa, Drinko de Mayo.’” — JIMMY FALLON
“That’s right, Thanksgiving is almost here. it’s one of my favorite holidays, but let’s be honest: It can be a little tense. I mean, that’s why for the turkey, I use a dry rub made of crushed Xanax.” — JIMMY FALLON
