This week's late night talk show highlights:
The Late Show with David Letterman
Anne Hathaway (7/12)
Our little princess from the diaries is all grown up now (playing Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises and Fantine in Les Misérables) and has become quite the exhibitionist in the process. In recent years many male film-goers have caught glimpses of her breasts more often than they have their own wives'. Not to mention she's inspired the replacement of the phrase "Is it bigger than a breadbox?" with "Can it fit in Anne Hathaway's mouth?"
Fred Armisen (7/10)
The ruins of the city
The thing about Portlandia is not so much the lack of gut-busting laughs, the absence of actual jokes or humor, or the grueling length of the aimless, one-note skits (Fred is an SNL cast member after all). It is more about the pseudo-documentary feel on the show's metropolis of choice which allows us to reaffirm our sacred duty of mocking hippies, the overly sensitive, and the dilettantish.
Ray Romano (7/9)
Take my wife...
The Italian Henny Youngman has made an entire career off the shtick of being the put upon husband and frequent doormat. Everybody Loves Raymond's "Debra" has been a career killer for Patricia Heaton (well, that and her confused Republican leanings), yet Ray seems unaffected by the scorched earth the show left in its wake. But, in the last eight years, Ray has given us Welcome to Mooseport and voice-overs for a wooly mammoth in a seemingly endless barrage of Ice Age animations. A milquetoast's vengeance.
