    Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart Midterm Election coverage last night end of an era

    For many, last night was a mix of emotions. For some it was a day to proudly cast a vote, making their voices heard and fulfilling an age-old civic duty.

    Since taking over the Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon has hosted hundreds of guests, ranging from accomplished musicians to upsettingly famous reality stars. Some of them have visited more often than others, a distinct honor in itself. That’s why I couldn’t imagine anyone more deserving of the record for most Fallon appearances than Artie Lange.
