This week, late night made its big return to TV. This perhaps marked the longest gap in new late night content since the writers strike of the late 1980’s. But everything returned to normal this week.

To celebrate the show’s coming back, we thought we’d take a look at the respective monologues.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

“Jimmy addresses the latest news, like U2 opening the new Sphere concert venue in Las Vegas and ABC premiering The Golden Bachelor.”

Jimmy Kimmel Live!

“We are back for the first time in five months and Jimmy talks about our awesome union crews that supported the writers throughout the strike, what Guillermo missed most, parents of staffers texting notes about our first show back, Donald Trump making a stop in Southern California, his new and exciting theory about how local water restrictions affect the rich, facing 91 felony counts, claiming that he weighs 215 pounds, his 250 million dollar fraud case, Republican infighting in Washington, and Jimmy reveals all the things he has been up to this summer – Forrest Gump style.”

Late Night With Seth Meyers

“Seth takes a closer look at Trump appearing in court for his civil fraud trial, the GOP's sham impeachment inquiry for Biden, Rudy Giuliani being sued by his ex-lawyer and more in an extended A Closer Look.”

The Late Show With Stephen Colbert

“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert is back, and our host has a special two-part monologue to catch everyone up on the stories we missed over the summer, including those Canadian wildfires, cocaine found in the White House, the government admitting aliens are real, the former president’s many indictments, and more.”

Last Week Tonight With John Oliver

“John Oliver discusses the health care offered in prisons and jails, who provides it, why it’s so bad, and what Red Bull’s slogan should be.”

Real Time With Bill Maher

”Bill reacts to the top stories of the week, including Senator Dianne Feinstein's passing and the Republican presidential debates.”
