Ellen DeGeneres’ House Was Struck By Lightning: Late Last Night

Last night, Ellen DeGeneres visited The Tonight Show to talk at length about how she has nothing to say…and then to try very hard to convince Jay that her house got struck by lightning (to no avail).

Al Gore showed up on The Colbert Report to try and explain global warming, energy conservation, and the fact that the world goes around the sun to Stephen Colbert…who, in a hilarious moment at the end of the interview, he accidentally “outs.”

Pauly D appeared on Conan to (literally) combine his mighty hair with the equally powerful pompador of Conan O’Brien, and to demonstrate the “Jersey Turnpike” dance with Roseanne Barr.

Finally, Will Arnett stopped by Late Night to compare his new show, Up All Night, to Teen Mom, and to give a little insight into just how big of a drunk he used to be.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
