What started out as an innocuous celebrity interview for an upcoming movie — with your standard baby punching clips and accounts of hilarious nut allergy and identity theft pranks — turned confrontational last night when Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis ganged up on Jon Stewart and his “lame” line of questioning. So much so that Stewart was forced to call in back up from a fellow Jonathan.
WWE tag team-style good times (followed by Intervention parody-style good times) proceeded from there, further cementing that Jon Hamm is the best and forcing me to revisit my elaborate plot for the two of us to become best friends. Step 2: Get a late night talk show.
Line of the segment: “Because this is basic cable I can bring on two to three stars and film a circle jerk. And I apologize.”
