response on Google, for being
the politest way to say, “Hey, dumbass,
you made a typo.” There you have it.
Those are my Thank You notes.


    I think the song he was orignally trying to sing was Take Me to Church by Hozier.

    Take me to church,
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies,
    I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife,
    Offer me that deathless death,
    Good God, let me give you my life.

    Thank you, Google.

    Less interviews with the dopey celebrities… more Jimmy singing and dancing please. Thank you, just a suggestion- what do I know

    I watched this because I thought Betty White turning 98 would warrant some special recognition, not get turned into a Bernie Sanders joke.

    Betty is an ICON. I was glad to hear that her appearance on SNL a few years ago was the one gig in which she had the most fun.

    Jimmy man, I love it when you guys are free like that. That's what I loved about late night. Do it more! You got so caught up in the format you lost the fun! Just have a good time! Heck yeah.

    That "gimme some reggae" line from Quest is super obscure GnR reference to come up with on the spot. Well done sir.

    This is why this is the best late night show. The spontaneous involvement with the Roots is always fun. You have to be a good musician to be able to improvise on the spot and just come up with something interesting and communicate properly with everyone in the band

    That whole take me to church Lewis capa leΓ­ knocking on heavens door just showed how amazing the roots and this show is

    Here he goes again trying to murder the lyrics of Lewis Capaldi’s hit song again! By the way, I also love the song Someone You Loved!
