    1. whereas this is for the Americans by the Americans.
      It’s just Brits, Britons, British, Sly Cocky Bastards, English Welsh Scottish and Irish, etc

  1. Even late night hosts can show their emotional human side, and tbh, I teared up with Jimmy Kimmel’s sons medical condition and Fallon’s passing. Let’s be damn honest here, we’ve automatically broke down when it comes to really bad news, sad or what not, it just hits you. 😭😭😭. Anyways, great video like always Watchmojo.

  2. Craig Ferguson’s eulogy of his father was one of the most touching moments ever, not just in late night but in television. I can’t believe that it did not make this list.

  3. Wait a minute. Jimmy Kimmel is number one because he’s crying he can’t afford health insurance for his kid? Is that what i’m hearing? A guy that earns more than 15 million a year is crying about he’s not able to afford health insurance for his kid?
