Seth Meyers also delivered a message of ridicule against Christie, Paul, and the anti-vaxxers.

David Letterman talked about health, with “Top 10 Sleep Recommendations From The National Sleep Foundation.” Though come to think of it, maybe being told, “Don’t set an alarm; let your anxiety wake you up naturally,” isn’t all that constructive.

Conan O’Brien welcomed a very special guest to his show — and it turns out that he also brought another old friend.
