How each late night host tackled the Donald Sterling scandal -- VIDEO

Billionaire Donald Sterling made headlines last week when TMZ posted audio recordings of the Los Angeles Clippers owner making racist comments. Specifically, the audio captures Sterling telling his mistress that he doesn’t want her associating with black people in public and asking her not to bring “them” to his games.

Everyone from President Obama to Snoop Dogg have offered their two cents on the controversy — and on Monday night, it was late night’s turn. See what each host had to say about Sterling, including what kind of animal he resembles, below:

Emma Stone dominates Jimmy Fallon's lip synch battle -- VIDEO

It’s official: Emma Stone is great at everything.

We already knew the movie star excels in the realms of freaking out, reality TV victory, and, of course, acting, but now she’s added another skill to her resume: Lip synching. On Monday’s edition of The Tonight Show, Stone easily schooled Jimmy Fallon in a lip synch battle when she pulled out DJ Khaled’s “All I Do Is Win,” which is basically her personal motto. She also got major bonus points for nailing Ludacris’ rap (and using the cameras to improve her performance).

See what I mean by watching the battle below:

David Alan Grier introduces his new book, 'How to Tell Black People Apart,' on 'Kimmel' -- VIDEO

In an attempt to promote his new show, Bad Teacher, David Alan Grier paid Jimmy Kimmel a little visit last night. But before they discussed the series, Grier wanted to take a moment to promote a new passion project of his — an educational book he’d written. (Well, not really. But just go with it.)

Inspired by that horrible interview where Samuel L. Jackson was mistaken for Laurence Fishburne, Grier wrote How to Tell Black People Apart.

That’s right: Grier has developed a method by which everyone can finally tell the difference between Kanye West and Puff Daddy. It’s a book that “will help you discriminate without discriminating.”

Stephen Colbert stopped by Jon Stewart’s show Wednesday to tell the Daily Show host what we already knew: He’s leaving The Colbert Report.

Why? Because “it’s become clear to me that I’ve won television,” Colbert told Stewart before blowing kisses to a cheering audience.

John Oliver on being magazine cover-worthy: 'It makes me feel nauseous and uncomfortable'

John Oliver isn’t ready to be face-on-a-billboard famous.

The comedian may be about to launch his own weekly show — but as Oliver explained to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Tuesday night, he still feels weird about things like posing for magazine covers.

After gracing the front of The Hollywood Reporter, Oliver “had to go to the launch party, and they asked what is it like [to be on the cover]. And I said, ‘It makes me feel nauseous and uncomfortable,’” explained the host of HBO’s upcoming series Last Week Tonight. “I looked up at the man interviewing me and realized that wasn’t the right answer.”

'Mindy Project' recap: An officer and a gynecologist

“When I need to take the Pill/ I look upon the windowsill…”

Mindy Lahiri and her cohorts dove headfirst last night into what is (somehow?) one of the big political debates of 2014: Birth control access! Dr. Lahiri was counseling an 18-year-old who wanted a prescription for the Pill without telling her overprotective detective father (Tim Daly), who proceeded to find out anyway, and then storm into Mindy’s office to demand answers. “You just watch yourself, you sex-crazed quack. I could get you on the no-fly list like that,” Detective Lang threatened.

Mindy, already on a no-fly list and never one for letting other people win an argument, chased him out of the building and proceeded to give him a piece of her mind. “Where do you get off on coming into my office and yelling about your outdated views on birth control? Who do you think you are, Rick Santorum? Obviously not, because you’re not hot.” (Real talk: Tim Daly is totally hotter than Santorum.) Get it, girl. On second thought, maybe we shouldn’t be cheering in the streets just yet. Detective Lang wrote her a ticket for Public Female Hysteria. Turns out it’s still on the books. READ FULL STORY

'The Voice' contestant Kristen Merlin powers through mid-performance mic outage -- VIDEO

The best part of watching The Voice is, well, hearing the voices.

That can’t be said for Top 12 contestant Kristen Merlin, who took the stage during season 6′s first live episode Monday — only to have her microphone fail completely during the last third of her performance.

Merlin was in the midst of singing her solid rendition of Sugarland’s “Stay” (delivering one of her strongest performances) when her voice cut out about 80 seconds into the song. A few seconds later, Merlin removed her in-ear monitor while she continued to sing; when a stagehand finally gave her a microphone 20 seconds later, the audience had already begun cheering as Merlin finished the song with a pitch-perfect “Stay” (that’s the title — everyone take a shot!). Following the performance, overwhelming audience response and enthusiasm from the coaches — including Merlin’s coach Shakira — visibly moved the singer to tears.

'Tonight Show' rap star Brian Williams conquers 'Gin and Juice,' wants to do Ludacris next -- VIDEO

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams wants you to know he never said “hippity.”

Jimmy Fallon has turned Williams into a rap star through videos of Williams “performing” hip-hop classics like “Rapper’s Delight” and, as of last night, “Gin and Juice,” via some very fancy editing. So on Monday, Williams himself went on The Tonight Show to talk about his burgeoning rap career. And he has some of his own ideas.

Courteney Cox shuts down talk of 'Friends' reunion on 'Letterman' -- VIDEO

Could she BE any more clear?

Courteney Cox went on the Late Show with David Letterman Monday night, and Letterman told her he had to ask her about something she probably didn’t want to address: A Friends reunion.

Fans have been clamoring for one since the show went off the air in May 2004 (10 years ago!). Unfortunately, Cox said she’s got some bad news: She can barely get Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, and Lisa Kudrow together for a cast dinner. That means a taped reunion simply isn’t in the cards. “It’s not gonna happen,” she said. (For the record, Friends creators Marta Kauffman and David Crane told EW the same thing earlier this month: “The show is over. What was at the heart of the show is done,” said Kauffman. And as Crane added, “People say they want it, and the more that we say it’s a bad idea, people [disagree]. But I think if we actually gave it to people, there would be such backlash.”)
