The election ends tomorrow, which means that late night TV is about to get a whole lot more boring (unless of course you're really in watching Channing Tatum play Twister — in which case, it’s about to become a whole lot more exciting). But that doesn’t mean we can’t have one final, hardy guffaw at the moments that defined these truly terrible and awful eight months.

Saturday Night Live closed out the election season with an awe-inspiring final debate between Kate McKinnon's Hillary Clinton and Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump, but what of the other great moments of this election cycle, the sketches and segments that kept up sane this past year?

From Jon Oliver’s blistering new nickname for Donald Trump to SNL's instant-classic “Black Jeopardy,” Wired has catalogued the best late night TV comedy of the year. Fall in love all over again with Jon Stewart popping in on Colbert and Jimmy Fallon tussling Donald Trump’s hair. We won’t believe it happened when it’s over, so revel in it all today. Check out Wired’s timeline of the sketches that defined the election here.

And to that we say, so long, Election 2016, you brought out the worst in all of us, and we’re happy to see you go.

Here's another reason to live past Election Day: Dave Chappelle will be hosting Saturday Night Live on November 12. This isn't just big news because Chappelle's the best, but also because it's the first time he'll be returning to sketch comedy since he ended Chappelle's Show in 2006. Not to be outdone, Chappelle will be sharing the stage with musical guest A Tribe Called Quest.

Set your DVRs to stun.

Facebook, a never-ending source of useful information, has been our goto for up-to-the-minute election coverage this past season. As such, it’s probably caused us more anxiety about this election than any one speech, Wikileaks email, or video featuring Billy Bush. Your Facebook wall feeds into your worst fears about the candidates, and Stephen Colbert knows it.

On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night, Colbert took a big swig of cough syrup, dusted off his box of Reynolds wrap, and made a new tin foil hat to block the radio signals that the Illuminati uses to read our minds. Colbert is full of great intel about such things as the whereabouts of Chumbawumba, the shadowy industry of upstate New York weddings, and what oysters actually are. By the end of it, you’ll have your cork board up and long strands of yarn connecting seemingly disparate items together to prove your theory that, hey, what if the Chicken McNugget is more nugget than chicken?

Check out the video and prepare to have your mind blown.

Fuller House, the Full House reunion series that you just had to have, premiered a mere nine months ago, and today, Netflix has released the trailer for the follow-up. That's right, Fuller House will be returning for another round of family-friendly high jinks on December 9. 

All your favorites are returning: Stephanie, DJ, Kimmy, and Danny, sporting a new, funky midlife crisis. So if you've been missing the milkman, the paperboy, and/or the evening TV, Fuller House is back because, let's face it, you just had to have this. 

via GIPHY

Just in time for the holidays, Fuller House season two will drop all at once on December 9, so be sure to carve out some time in your busy holiday schedule to binge on what might be Netflix's most popular show. No, seriously, Fuller House season one brought in over 14-million viewers, which is more eyes on the screen than Game of Thrones or Walking Dead. Yup, an estimated 14.4 million people just had to have this thing, and because of that, we're all getting more. 

Just goes to show you, most people just want some light situational comedy, not humans being hacked to death. Go figure.

As the wave of nostalgia continues to plague our culture, yet another beloved property is getting the old reboot: Jim Henson's Muppet Babies. This ain't your father's Muppet Babies, though. Muppet Babies will feature a new, 100% computer-generated look for Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzy, and the rest. No word yet as to whether or not Nanny and her infamous green and white stripped stockings will be 100% computer generated.


Oh, also, the characters look absolutely terrifying.

Muppet Babies premieres on Disney Junior in 2018, but until then, why don't you kickback and get the theme song stuck in your head?

Have you been up at 3am tweet-shaming President Obama recently? Well, watch out, he sees you.

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, President Barack Obama took out an iPhone and participated in Kimmel's much-beloved Mean Tweets segment, fielding insult after insult on everything, from some bad shampoo to his choice of jeans. You think dealing with Putin's tough? Try sleeping after being called both the Nickelback of Presidents and the Sharknado of Presidents. Cold blooded.



The final insult of the night came from, you guessed it, Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump. Under the guise of his @realDonaldTrump handle, Trump lobbed 140 characters of fury at the commander-in-chief.



To which Obama replied, "At least I will go down as a President."

Here's all the news you may have missed:

1. Grab that Remote, It's Fall TV Time, beotches!

Time to lace up your Taylor Swift-issue Keds, grab your retro backpack, and queue up your DVR so you don't miss these awesome new Science Fiction and Fantasy Shows on TV This Fall!

2. Hunger Games IRL at the Olympics

During the men's marathon on Sunday, Ethiopian long-distance runner Feyisa Lilesa pulled a Hunger Games moment and showed his support for the Oromo Protests in his home country by making a specific motion with his arms:



Showing the sign is highly political though, so when he spoke a press conference after the marathon he said what he risked with the gesture, "If I go back to Ethiopia maybe they will kill me," he said, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

"If I am not killed maybe they will put me in prison. [If ] they [do] not put me in prison they will block me at airport. I have got a decision. Maybe I move to another country."

Like the Hunger Games, let's hope the people can rise above this oppression.

2. Donald Trump Breaks the Lie Barrier

Fact Check says Trump's First Ad Averages 1 Lie Every 4 Seconds. I can hear Hillary's slow golf-clap from here. Let's hope his next ad doesn't disappoint us either.
