Welcome to Best of Late Night, a rundown of the previous night’s highlights that lets you sleep — and lets us get paid to watch comedy. We’re all stuck at home at the moment, so here are the 50 best movies on Netflix right now.
The ‘Frasier’ of Presidencies
President Biden’s first full day in the White House was the talk of late night on Thursday.

The Punchiest Punchlines (the New Plan Is Having a Plan Edition)
“So today, President Biden signed 10 executive orders to get his pandemic plan rolling, including a requirement for masks while traveling, studies and trials of Covid-19 treatments, and more public data on cases and vaccinations. It’s a new strategy the White House is calling ‘Operation: Well, Duh!’” — STEPHEN COLBERT
“As part of Biden’s new Covid strategy, he’s launching the ‘100 days masking challenge.’ Biden’s smart. he knows that he can get Americans to do anything if he makes it sound like a TikTok challenge.” — JIMMY FALLON
“And the best part is, the Biden administration is going to keep us informed about what they’re doing, with regular expert-led, science-based public briefings. Which will be a nice change from moron-led, Clorox-based, dexamethasone ramblings.” — STEPHEN COLBERT
