The Supreme Court ruled that a baker in Colorado can refuse to make a wedding cake for a same- sex couple on religious grounds. Ladies and gentlemen, in my opinion, if there’s anything America is not going to stand for, it’s less cake. — Conan O’Brien ›
The Tony Awards was last night — or as I call it, the Super Bowl — and it was absolutely wonderful. The moment everyone was buzzing about was when Robert De Niro had to be censored for saying onstage “[expletive] Trump.” And today, angry Trump supporters everywhere are pretending that they actually watch the Tony Awards. — James Corden ›
After IHOP announced they would be changing their name to IHOb with a “b,” the company revealed today with great fanfare that the “b” stands for “burgers.” This is excellent news, because since I moved to America, I’ve been asking myself, “Where can I find a burger? I’ve looked high and low, and you just can’t find one here.” — James Corden ›

The back story, in case you don’t know: Ted was unhappy that I compared him to a blobfish — even though, in fairness to me, he looks just like one. He should be angry at his parents. So he challenged me to a game, and I accepted his challenge. But I pointed out that after losing the election to a reality-show host, maybe it wouldn’t be a great idea to lose a basketball game to a talk-show host. — Jimmy Kimmel ›
A new restaurant has opened in Boston where all the food is cooked by robots. The restaurant was started by a group of engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. A robot that can cook a meal. Is this a new thing? Isn’t this just a microwave? I’m pretty sure I had a robot make me a frozen burrito last night. — James Corden
