    Shep looks good these days. Very comfortable on LATE NIGHT. Gave the best answers on the Megyn-Trump flare up one could imagine.

    • Martha

      Shep did great on that show. He was very relaxed and comfortable. He was funny and witty. I love to see his real personality show. His take on the Megyn Kelly event was perfect ,and the effect of it told with humour .
      Thank you Johnny for posting the Videos. Can the whole segment be done in one video ,so I could save it ? Or does that pose problems ?

      • I have no way to do that. The videos were put up that way by NBC and I’m just embedding their work. It’s possible if you check youtube that somebody may have put the whole segment up in one piece. (I don’t know why NBC entertainment shows take 10 minute segments and break them into three or four parts. Oh yes I do, because that way they can run three or four commercials.)

        • Martha

          Thanks Johnny. There is no full length segment anywhere .. and although in 3 parts..your quality is the best , However …in this new format you have, I can’t save the Vids.

          • Instead of clicking on the link and letting it open, try “open link in new window” and see if you can save it from there. That’s usually a menu option, a right click or option-click depending on your OS.

          • Martha

            Thanks Johnny…It worked . I couldn’t save the 3 vids to the same Folder because they all save as “widget player”….but I save the longest segment about Megyn/Trump…and Sheps Mississippi accent. They were my favourite parts.
            I wouldn’t have known how to do that…so Thanks again.

          • Michael T

            Your choice Martha.

            But I would have simply copied & pasted each of the three video links into email and then saved the email somewhere — such as an email folder or a folder on your hard drive.

            For example, right-click on Johnny’s link at “part one” and select “Copy Link Location” which copies the link to your clipboard.

            Then repeat for parts 2 and 3.

            Then the body of your email would be the following:

            Thank you Michael 🙂
            I just did exactly as you said….and it worked !!
            Now I have all 3 parts in one place .Thanks again Michael.
            I learn something every day .

          • Michael T

            Glad it worked for you.

          • Larry Kelly

            All the late night shows provide short clips of the highlights the next day. Break a segment into three, you get to tack on three commercials. Gotta pay the bills 😀

      • Larry Kelly

        Loved the pet food segment with Kennedy. As always, what a hillarious pair they make.

  • Larry Kelly

    Does Zucker wear his pants hanging down?

  • Larry Kelly

    I saw Trump on WWE once. You’d better be afraid Z!

    By the way, Jon Stewart’s first gig after his Daily Show retirement is hosting the WWE “Summer Slam” event this weekend. Their big mid-year production.

  • Grandpa D

    I’m waiting for an animation of Trump pounding on the White House door.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      I’m waiting for Trump to bang his shoe on the table. I’m really showing my age with that one.

      • gcblues

        i remember that…. it was in black and white too, if you can remember your first color tv, we can relate. remember the Gillette Friday night fights with the mouth on the mic. the real beginnings of WWE

        • Michael T

          I remember it as well. Oh so long ago.

          Even ‘little’ Mr. Bill was only 11 at the time — no doubt terrorizing the Catholic school nuns in sixth grade.

          • I remember it too, which is funny because not only was it not televised, at least one famous photo of K with the shoe in his hand has been proven to be fake. In fact, there’s even a debate as to whether it happened at all.

            I seem to remember many years ago that contrary to many recollections the event was not aired on tv and there are no films of the incident. It’s a peculiar thing that we remember the image so well when in all likelihood we never saw it. Even more peculiar are the thousands who insisted they saw Kennedy shot live on tv. There was no live coverage. It was a routine motorcade like hundreds of others; there was no reason for live news coverage.

          • gcblues

            i did not know that.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            It does make a great story, though. I do remember Oswald being shot. That was on TV.

          • gcblues

            i was 6

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            I was 8 when Khrushchev was supposed to have done his thing.

          • gcblues

            you are not even 60. you going wifeless for 30 more years? travel man, have fun

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            I was born in 1952. I am 63. My odds of making it for 30 more years are slim and none. And none has left the building. Being a widower twice is enough for me. That doesn’t mean that I don’t date.

          • gcblues

            he he he

          • timdub70

            I was -2. JFK assassination was when I was 1. Mr. Khruschev said We Will Bury You-Sting.

          • Larry Kelly

            Duck and cover. In grade school we did have nuclear war drills much as we had tornado drills. Local department stores had basement areas equipped as fallout shelters and marked as such. A scary time for little boys and girls. When Mr. K. made his trip to the USA and wanted to visit Disneyland, I remember that making him less frightening to me.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            I remember the drills and those yellow and black signs.

        • gcblues
