11:36 pm
. >> thank you for coming. [ indiscernible ] after 16 days the government shutdown is over as of today. [ cheers and applause ] i had nothing to do with it. kind of funny, watching cable news all day. some of the guys in congress are acting like this is a big achievement. i -- if you pick up a gun and don't shoot yourself in the leg with it, that's not really an achievement. [ applause ] right now, devastated ted cruz is filibustering a squirrel on the lawn of the capitol building. if everyone signs off tonight, the government will temporarily reopen until january 15th and the debt ceiling raised until february 7th and we'll do this over again. why do we have a debt ceiling? why can't we get rid of the debt ceiling, have a convertible government and feel the wind in our national hair?
11:37 pm
the shutdown has been confusing for those of us that don't know anything. fortunately we have experts like alex castinellos who break it down. >> a friend explained what ted cruz is doing. i finally understand he is having bunny sex. actually -- >> excuse me. >> this is the late night edition. >> in nature there are boom and bust cycles. the snowshoe hare every ten years multiplies six fold. >> are you high? >> jimmy: that's what happens when you have political discussions with your imaginary friends. mrauz mr [ applause ] he was nod high, no excuse. i watched a lot of cnn, a new thing, anchors introducing themselves during the commercial breaks. i was on my computer half paying attention when i heard this promo. >> visit hughesnet and order today.
11:38 pm
and i'm asika and this is cnn. >> jimmy: am i the only one that heard i'm a c cup. >> i'm asika and this is cnn. >> jimmy: congratulations. usually they work at fox news. this is crazy, marine scientist was snorkeling off catalina island off the coast here in southern california and fund a massive ore fish. rarely seen they live 3,000 feet deep. look at that thing. this died and floated to the top. 1 feet long. they can get up to 50 feet long. they eat plankten and small children. everyone is posing by it. look at the length of this. really, remarkable. animal. >> i have seen monsters and this
11:39 pm
is cnn. >> they talk too. incredible. >> the artist -- formerly known as snoop dog is changing his name again. snoop dog, released a regae album, changed his name to snoop lion. now working on a funk album we will release under the name snoop-zilla. isn't that a web browser or something? i wonder if snoop remembers his ch changed his name once this year. maybe changes it because he keeps forgetting it. eventually he will call himself greg or something. snoop-zilla will be here monday. i will ask him. unless i forget. in which case. a new product, comes to us from japan, a company, selling limited edition wine for cats. it is a wane for cats. which is great. now our cats are going to get drunk, tell us what they think
11:40 pm
about us too. you know what your problem is -- your lap is boney. this is the wine -- it means "meow- "meow-meow" in japanese. in japan. wine and soy sauce come in the same bottles. cats like to get drunk. people won't stop talking in the baby voice all day. they're running commercials for the feline wine in japan. they hired big american celebrity spokesman to endorse it. ♪ ♪ the only wine good enough for my cat. isn't that right, butterscotch? ha-ha, yes.
11:41 pm
slow down, little buddy. save some for father. nyan-nyan nouveau. >> 100% safe for feline livers and [ bleep ]. >> nyan-nyan. >> jimmy: might have to try that. this is interesting. and -- an artist in pittsburgh put this together. gathered body mass measurements from countries, put them into a computer, made digital models to show what the average male body looks like in each country. from left to right is the average male in the netherlands, then u.s., france, and japan. the guy, why he is taller, think he is wearing spanx. not fair. they look like they're about to participate in the world's most mediocre orgy, can we see the picture of the american body. okay. i want, i will be honest. that is exactly what i look like
11:42 pm
in my underpants. its as if they broke into my home. except i have a thug life tattoo across my stomach. i want to go back to the shut down for, a moment, because it was the big news to day. though it was the main story, nonstop, all day on tv, radio, internet. i suspect that most people still don't understand what happened. so we went out on to hollywood boulevard today. and we asked the following question. do you think republicans did the right thing by allowing obama care to move forward though impending dealt crisis ilcould defend sequester furloughs at national parks and default ceiling fans? now that doesn't mean anything at all. just a bunch of buzzword crammed together. sound like it should mean something. people answered any way. here is our confusing question of the day. >> do you think the republicans did the right thing by allowing obama care to move forward even
11:43 pm
though the impending debt crisis could defund additional sequester furloughs and national parks and default ceiling fans? >> yes because the government need to not, government need to start getting going. i mean -- the extra, the extra debt that is accumulated and the repercussions are bad, but i think, universal health care will be a greater ben president for all. >> do you think the debt ceiling fan should be oscillating? >> yeah, yeah, to a certain extent. it can oscillate to a certain extent. but with that there is all way the idea you can keep raising the debt and raising the debt. i think there should be a cap on how much debt should be raised to. >> do you think the republicans did the right thing by allowing obama care to move forward though the impending dealt crisis -- >> no. >> so you think the republican were wring to default on the ceiling fans? >> i do. >> do you think the ceiling fans
11:44 pm
need to be reupholstered, what would be the right thing to do? >> i would guess so, yeah, reupholstered. >> ceiling fan powered by electric or solar power? >> solar power, right, it would be good. >> of all the sequesters in the government, who is your favorite? >> bill clinton. >> do you think the ceiling fans should be allowed to oscillate? >> i think -- i think we need to consider maybe not having one. maybe, maybe, like another solution. >> man putting it on a low setting? >> something. something that -- >> because it shakes around so much when it is high, you know? which do you prefer sequester or furlough?
11:45 pm
>> furlough. >> how come? >> well, i'm sorry, i don't exactly understand what you are asking. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: we will take a break. when we come back, i am going to sit down with a panel of children to talk abut this government shutdown. plus, danny mcbride, chiwetel ejiofor, and music from arctic monkeys. so come on back. ♪ [ male announcer ] this is not a hotel. it's an idea that travel should be brilliant. the promise of spaces as expansive as your imagination. this is not business as usual, it's a new take on taking a meeting. a new way to inspire, create, and yes, dream. because it's not only about where you're staying,

12:01 am
. >> thank you. >> jimmy: i love the show. really, really look forward to it on sundays you. play kenny powers, a baseball player. you were never a baseball player in real life, true? >> never a baseball player. a buddy of mine, jody hill and myself created the show. a lot of times we worried about the writing we never think i have to do the stuff that we write. it wasn't until after we set the show up. we were a week away from shooting that we both looked at each other. i play a major league pitcher in this. supposed to know how to throw a baseball, right. i can't throw. >> jimmy: do you cover that up. train, what do you do? >> a lot of closeups. go in very close. >> jimmy: people must expect you, you probably get invited to do baseball related charity events? >> i do. got invited to throw out the first pitch of a ton of games. i have an excuse or a funeral i have to go to. >> jimmy: will you ever do it? >> never. >> jimmy: you need a fake cast or something like that. so you can, throw with your left hand. people go. >> that's what it was about. >> jimmy: you did get hurt on
12:02 am
the show this season. you brought a videotape. >> i did. busted on the show this year. you know we don't think about that i have to execute the things we write. so -- during the season there is a part where, kenny powers goes to a skating party. it didn't dawn on me until i got there. i haven't put skates on since i was 12 years old. so -- it -- >> jimmy: we have it. see what happened. this is an official blooper, i think. >> moving around pretty good. and then loose. right there. that's real. >> jimmy: real, not imagined. let's do that in slow motion. always fun that way ow. >> there we go. for the rest of the season i walk weird. >> jimmy: did you hurt yourself? >> i did. they took me to the emergency room after that. i tried to act like everything was fine the i took the skates off. my toes were convulsing.
12:03 am
i couldn't stand up straight. >> jimmy: were people worried? >> terrified. like, i am in every scene of the show. so they like, laid me down. there was like everyone was around. all the producers. a lot of my friend work on the show. looking at me concerned. you know what is going to happen. going to finish shooting the show. and i don't know what it was. just seeing how scared they all were. made me, though i was hurting i really wanted to mess with them. so i started kind of look goingen and out of consciousness. i started kind of look saying, did you see me out there. i was beautiful. >> jimmy: ha-ha. >> they were confused. they were like is something happening right now. has he lost his mind? >> a weird thing when you realize. i had been injured a couple times shooting the thing. people are more concerned more with their well being than theirs. >> marilyn manson is, i know he is a big fan of the show. you worked him into the show this season, right?
12:04 am
>> we were looking at his tour schedule. he was going to be near north carolina where we are shooting. wouldn't it be weird if marilyn manson came to north carolina while we were shooting and saw what that was like. so he showed up. we actually like, threw a wig on him. took his makeup off. put him into a scene of the show. but, he was a great guy, completely nice. completely cool. but the day he left, we are staying at a small, mom, and pop hotel. family friendly. manson stayed there too. when he left, we got a call from the hotel. they're like, manson trashed the room. we were like, really that's odd. yeah, the lady said there was pizza on the ceiling. red liquid everywhere. broken glass. she said there were sex toilys. sunny wouldn't describe what they were. >> jimmy: you asked her to. >> please, i need more details.
12:05 am
how many ribs are on it. in my head he was friendly and nice. i wonder if there is an element he has to sort of portray that sort of crazy edge. i was imagining sitting in the hotel room, reading his kindle. catching up on downton abbey. check out time comes. pulls out the satan toys. destroys the room. >> jimmy: maybe people would be disappointed if he didn't do anything. >> that's what happens. this character is a monster. when people meet me they're extremely disappointed. >> i feel the same way. same way. not disappointed. but it is odd because you have so much bravado. and whatever. >> i have none of that. >> jimmy: quiet. friendly guy. try to be a more of a [ bleep ]. >> i should. i will work on it. >> jimmy: we will take a break, and when we come back we'll meet stevie from the show. i love. i think he is hilarious. see a scene from next week's "eastbound & down."
