Late night TV was mostly preempted on Election Night, although on Wednesday the hosts of late night returned with plenty to say about the stunning election of Donald Trump.
Stephen Colbert, who aired his third live “Late Show” of the week, opened his show not definitely knowing how to feel about Trump being the brand new president.
“I’m Stephen Colbert… I think? I’m not sure what to believe anymore,” the CBS host said. “of which is usually what of which feels like when America is usually made great again. I was definitely hoping of which could feel better because of which suuuuuucks.”
Seth Meyers, host of NBC’s “Late Night” as well as also one of Trump’s biggest critics, opened his broadcast which has a long impassioned monologue about the newly elected president.
“We’ve been talking about Donald Trump on of which show for 18 months, as well as also one of the things I’ve tried to make clear over those 18 months is usually how I’ve been wrong about him at every turn,” Meyers said opening his show on Wednesday night.
Meyers added of which the not bad news is usually of which “based on of which pattern of me being wrong on every one of my Donald Trump predictions,” Trump will probably be a great president.
At the end of his speech, Meyers made Trump a promise for the next four years.
“Donald Trump made a lot of promises as to what he’s going to do within the next four years, as well as also right now we get to see if he can fulfill them,” he said. “as well as also so, I’d just like to make one promise to him: We here at ‘Late Night’ will be watching you.”
TBS’ “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” opened with Bee asking how everyone was doing before trying to figure how everything went “spectacularly wrong.”

“What we did was the democratic equivalent of installing an above ground pool,” Bee said. “Even if we’re lucky as well as also of which doesn’t seep into our foundations the neighbors will never look at us the same way again.”
Bee’s TBS late night counterpart, Conan O’Brien, opened his monologue by also asking if his audience was okay as well as also saying of which democracy is usually still the best form of government no matter the outcome.
“We have free as well as also fair elections as well as also I think of which’s a wonderful thing,” O’Brien said. “right now, today Americans contain the right to feel happy, angry, pessimistic, optimistic although everybody should feel grateful of which we get to vote, as well as also if we don’t get our way we contain the chance to try again.”
TBS, like sy88pgw, is usually owned by Time Warner.
