Last Night on Late Night: Betty White Looks Forward to Being Manhandled

It’s been a rough week in the news, what with vast oil spills, economic worries, and now this. Thankfully, Betty White was on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, seeking advice from the SNL veteran. He tells her not to worry, that things get crazy between sketches, what with people putting on wigs and taking your clothes off. “It’s been a long time since I’ve been manhandled,” White says to a giggling Fallon. “I’m looking forward to it.” On Jimmy Kimmel Live, 30 Rock’s Jack McBrayer slash Kenneth the Page reveals his deepest fear: Twittering. Then, lest we forget, some pretty bad stuff happened today, as NBC’s news anchor Brian Williams chronicles to David Letterman. “If I weren’t so close to this, I wouldn’t leave my house,” he says, quoting Fox News’ Neil Cavuto. Pretty sunny stuff. Then, Jon Stewart demonstrates the new containment dome via some Diet Coke, a Mentos, and a terra-cotta pot on a fishing pole. And just when you thought all of late night was fear and Twitter, Jay Leno mercifully lightens the mood with a little Mother’s Day gifting humor. Watch our compilation to see what you missed.
