Another week, and another look back at the fun, laughs, and all those POINTS! Let’s check out what you might have missed this past week.
Al Madrigal, Ed Helms, and Rob Riggle
As a tip-of-the-hat to The Daily Show on Jon Stewart’s last week, Chris had three previous corespondents from the show compete against each other. The show opened commenting on Ronda Rousey’s quick win, and Chris asked the trio to come up with their own “Fight Names.” Rapid Refresh opened the wounds about the hitchhiking robot, and the comedians were asked to taunt the robot as terrible Philadelphia residents, as well as come up with celebrity endorsed products they might regret buying. The first #HashtagWars of the week celebrated Mark Cuban’s birthday with #BadSharkTankPitches. Chris asks the gents to decide on a Dad’s turn ons and turn offs based on pictures from Instagram. The live challenge had them talk their way out of getting caught underaged drinking on TV at a baseball game, like this kid, Chris mentions how Jon Stewart actually helped him turn his life around (by making fun of him on TV) while asking the comedians to list the worst jobs ever in 60 seconds, check it out in the clip below. Finally, For The Win asked the comedians to incite a lawsuit by insulting a celebrity via Twitter, and it doesn’t end well for Chris.
Jen Kirkman, Tom Lennon, and Ron Funches
Chris and the comedians celebrate Barak Obama’s birthday with Ted Cruz-style passive-aggressive birthday wishes. Rapid Refresh asked the comedians to come up with the song Lenny Kravitz must had been singing when his pants split, exposing his penis. Next up, #HashtagWars chose to #RuinAThriller to also celebrate the forthcoming birthday of M. Night Shyamalan. Chris asks the comedians to give new names (including numbers in them) for unknown boy bands found on YouTube. The Live Challenge plays on Christian-based inequality billboard by tasking the panelists with coming up with less than commanding quotes from God himself. After last week’s Harry Potter hashtag confused many Twitter users, Chris asked the comedians to come up with more troll-filled hashtags. You have to watch this one. For The Win wraps things up by asking the comedians to come up with their douchiest qualification to be accepted onto The League dating site.
Chris and his guests are not done talking about Lenny Kravitz’s junk just yet, and after a tweet about it was sent out by Steven Tyler from Aerosmith, Chris asks the comedians to tweet back…as Lenny’s penis. Rapid Refresh tasked the comedians what it might take to get Joe Jackson off as the 87 year old nearly died from ODing on Viagra, and come up with the crappiest colleges in the country. #HashtagWars brought the #SuperVillainCelebs out of their lairs and into the light. Chris tasked the contestants with deciding which of two questions offered were actually asked on Yahoo! Answers, as well as decide if a username is a Serial Killer name, or an OKCupid profile. The Live Challenge asked the comedians to come up with something (other than his use of birth control) they wouldn’t want Chris Christie to tell them while they are eating. A new segment had people send pictures in to allow the comedians to roast them for points (check it out below), and finally For The Win asked for the comedians to write a line in a GOP debate speech in order to thwart Donald Trump’s lead over the republican candidates.
For Tag Team Thursday, Chris invited the hosts of UCB’s Crash Test with one of their most recent contributors, Aubrey Plaza. Marking Jon Stewart’s last night on The Daily Show, Chris kicked off the show asking the guests to give examples of how FOX News is celebrating Stewart’s departure. Rapid Refresh took another trip into The Panderdome, and with Republicans like Ted Cruz coming off as mere parodies of Republicans, Chris asks the panelists what else they could parody for votes. He then asked what else, other than Miller High Life might makes a woman live past 100 years old. The #HashtagWars followed with Comedy Central’s #JonVoyage tag by asking what Jon will finally get to do now that he won’t be on TV. The contestants had to come up with infomercial voice overs based on GIFs from existing infomercials (watch below,) and the Live Challenge tasked them pretending to be Siri poorly translating a voicemail into a text message. The Bible Rules documentary gave Chris the idea to have the panelists come up with passages from a Bro-riffic Bible, and For The Win wrapped up the week by having the trio come up with online reviews for an expensive guacamole bowl being sold on Jeb Bush’s website.
That’s all for this week, gang! Be sure to check in next as more comedians battle to win the internet for just a little under 24 hours.
