“There’s never been a more important time to mention that we tape this show at 5 p.m. But as of this taping, the winner of the presidential election has not been determined and votes are still being counted in several key states,” said NBC’s “Late Night” host Seth Meyers. “Of course, you’re watching this at 12:35 tonight, or maybe sometime Thursday afternoon. So if Trump won, will you please get in a time machine and come back to find and kill me.”…

Kimmel: “I’m very happy and relieved that it looks like we’re finally sending this monster back to Mar-a-Lago. But I’m also shocked that it was this close. I mean, we reunited the cast of every movie and TV show ever made to win this election. It is unimaginable to me that close to half of American voters saw what this man has done to this country over the last four years [reads long list that includes ‘he dismantled the pandemic response team’ and ‘he called neo-Nazis ‘very fine people’] and almost half of us are apparently okay with that. Half of us want to keep it going for four more years. … What more did Trump have to do to show us that he’s insane and not fit to lead this country? I feel like I overestimated the American people. And I underestimated the Village People.”

Fallon: “Apparently a lot of voters looked at 90,000 covid cases a day and said, ‘Sure, I can do four more years of this.’ ”
