WATCH: We Can’t Get a Lady On Late Night, But All 6 Man-Hosts Honored Joan Rivers Last Night


A lot of people found Joan Rivers grating. A lot of people thought she was a horrendous racist. A lot of people thought it was awful that it was basically her job to scream at people about what garbage monsters they’re dressed like on a red carpet on ostensibly the biggest night of their lives. We don’t care about those people.

And neither did the men of late night. Because we can’t get a lady to kick one of these straight white dudes out from behind their desks, but at least they all demonstrated a healthy fear of one of comedy’s great ladies. Here are her late night send-ups from last night: RANKED.

Jimmy Kimmel: The winner, not only for bringing a lady comic on to talk about Joan, but also for making that lady comic his ex-girlfriend Sara Silverman.

Seth Meyers: Heartfelt

David Letterman: Terrified

Conan: Points for mentioning her turn on Johnny Carson, which eventually got her banned from The Tonight Show.

Craig Ferguson: A respectably roasty one-liner.
