Stephen Colbert's 'Late Show' Gets Emmy Nomination, While Jimmy Fallon Is Snubbed

That's pretty much what Stephen Colbert thought as well, and in his monologue from last night's show, Colbert broke down the latest instalment in the Trump saga and issued a stirring apology to Eric Trump that gets you right in the feels. And now the Emmys are feeling the Trump bump too.

Those surprising changes in the-once stable predictable genre are no doubt after-effects of President Trump's surprising victory over Hillary Clinton in November, and his inauguration in January.

Colbert then ran the video "In Memoriam" to mockingly celebrate the life "fake news" experienced. Bee has emerged as an important female critic of the new administration in an otherwise crowded male playing field, selling "Nasty Woman" t-shirts to support Planned Parenthood and even hosting the Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner special in April. Perhaps more importantly, the comedian has plenty of experience taking home multiple Emmy awards in one night: he did so two years in a row-in 2013 and 2014-when The Colbert Report took home gold statuettes in the variety series and writing for a variety series categories. We'll find out next week, when The Late Show with Stephen Colbert kicks off "Russia Week" on Monday, July 17. Could he do it again with his new broadcast show come September?

Notably, Jimmy Fallon's "Tonight Show", Seth Meyer's "Late Night" and Trevor Noah's "The Daily Show" were snubbed. Samantha Bee of the "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" television series in return volleyed back at "The Tonight Show" for booking Trump in the first place.

Looks like Jimmy Fallon really shouldn't have touched Donald Trump's hair.
