There’s a certain theatrical nihilism to Donald Trump that lends itself well to Batman’s greatest nemesis, as we’ve seen Mark Hamill repeatedly demonstrate with his Joker-ized take on Trump tweets. As it turns out, the parallel works eerily well with other Jokers, as The Daily Show discovers with horrifying precision.

Whether or not you believe that Trump’s Hamilton controversy with VP-Elect Mike Pence was intended to draw attention from the Trump University settlement, it certainly made for one of the more unusual Presidential feuds in history, Hamilton included. So much so, that Stephen Colbert sought to enter the conflict into history with its own Hamilton-esque hip-hop musical.

Now that Jon Stewart is off in the wilderness of HBO, perhaps no late-night voices kept us so sane through 2016 as Samantha Bee and John Oliver. We already knew the latter would be back, but now TBS confirms Full Frontal With Samantha Bee will return for Season 2 in 2017, and on a new night at that.

The coming weeks will see a great deal of digital ink devoted to the discarded material and pivots that late-night hosts faced in the wake of Tuesday’s election, and perhaps none would have been so biting as Full Frontal’s Samantha Bee. Now, Bee shows us “A Beautiful, Faraway Dream,” returning Jon Stewart and news anchors from all over to celebrate what might have been.

Showtime
Little in America went the way people expected in Election 2016, and anyone watching Stephen Colbert’s live 2016 Showtime special can certainly attest to that. The mood was one of shock, far more than laughter, but leave it to Colbert to still get audiences on their feet with a rousing, sober (barely) assessment of the world going forward.
