Our team of 37 heavily caffeinated editors has spent all day hand-crafting a brilliantly selected array of the best TV clips from last night so you don’t miss anything you shouldn’t. Watch what you want, skip what you don’t. Just be sure to swing back around tomorrow for more of yesterday’s greatest stuff.

Tis the season for giving gifts! Although when it comes to gift giving, people love to say it’s the thought that counts, as far as Andy Richter is concerned, if you’re not willing to move to Illinois and suffer testicular damage for the sake of the gift receiver, what are you even thinking?

Meanwhile, on the Late Late Show, we got a behind-the-scenes look at the auditions for Empire. Taraji P. Henson slays and James Corden, uh, tries to slay. What is the word for trying to slay? Tryingtoslay?

On Fallon, noted shouter Bernie Sanders tried out the “Whisper Challenge.” Is the whole thing a ploy to get him to say "Feel the Bern.” We think yes, but that’s OK!

Finally, we’ve heard of Sanders, but Saunders? Stephen Colbert had award-winning writer George Saunders on the Late Show to read him a bedtime story, which is impressive considering the person who used to read us bedtime stories was just our dad who worked very hard! So really, our dad was impressive too. Hi, Dad!
