Kimmel clocked the Late Night competition. These were Monday's most memorable moments:
Hey Jimmy Kimmel, I Unplugged the TV during The Game
Jimmy asked and the audience delivered: Scores of TVs across America were unplugged at a crucial moment in Sunday's game, and no one seemed very happy about it. The hilarious compilation of clips spirals into one unintelligible chorus of screams, followed by more than one videographer taking a beating. Thanks, guys! Just give us the number of your hospital room and we'll send flowers.

Most Hysterical Monologue Jokes
Jay Rips on the Royal Family
"Today is Queen Elizabeth's 60th anniversary as ruler of England. Her son Prince Charles gave her a beautiful embroidered pillow as a gift -- he didn't mean to -- she woke up while he was holding it over her face." (The Tonight Show with Jay Leno)
Kimmel Eggs E-Trade
"Hey, E-Trade, a baby talking about investments in a grown man's voice doesn't make him cute. It makes him the Antichrist."(Jimmy Kimmel Live)
Craig's Super Bowl Spot
"Everyone is talking about the commercials. Remember the one with David Beckham in underwear? I never quite figured out what the commercial was for -- I'm thinking some kind of sausage." (The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson)
Music Moment: Cirque du Soleil
See also: the WTF? Award. Performances by Cirque du Soleil reliably plunge headfirst into the bizarre, and the troupe's appearance on The Tonight Show, which paired feats of acrobatics with giant, paper palm trees and huge, plush kiwis, was no exception. The good news is, it's actually the second weirdest performance of the night, after Die Antwoord. Seriously.
The Halftime Award
Our hosts took a time-out to discuss Madonna's controversial Super Bowl halftime show, particularly the extended middle finger of participant M.I.A. What do you think, was the gesture inappropriate for an all-American event or are people being too thin (pig)skinned?
