Behind the Desk: The Story of Late Night | Episode 6 – The Future

Episode 6: The Future

Late night TV sensibilities crash through the status quo and frame society to expose all that is fun, funny and non-sensical about it. As a diverse new group of hosts ascend, the late night landscape looks less and less like the old white boys club of the past and more like the mosaic that America has grown into. With the help of Amber Ruffin, Desus & Mero, Lilly Singh, Trevor Noah and more, Bill analyses late night’s bright, inclusive future as it shakes off a historical resistance to woman and the BIPOC community.

    1. Do unto others as you would have done unto yourselves! Love GOD with all your heart and being! Jesus is the TRUTH, the WAY, the LIFE!

    2. @Jeffrey B Alexander Jesus never sent me $3400 in stimulus checks during Covid.
      Biden did that.
      Prior to this, the game show host who likes people that weren’t captured didn’t sent me one dime.

    1. Yup and the devil turned you
      Kweer
      To make you an abomination to God before they rip your soul into the slithering muck

    1. We’re obsessed with politics. We even politicized wearing masks during a pandemic. It’s become a form of entertainment, especially for Trump’s supporters. He gained his cult by presenting his politics in a reality show format. They had no interest in politics, or elections, and it shows. If they understood how elections work, they’d understand that what they believe about it being stolen is impossible.

    1. Kamala’s neck is so rotten and gross flies bust out of it to seek sanctuary on Mike Pence’s hair.

    1. Russian troll misspells Johnathan in his screen name but has Castro at the ready. Russians liked Castro.

    2. @John Wilharm I wish I was a Russian troll. Sadly I am not and this is reality. I am part of the Castro family even I know the Democrats have lost it and are sinking America.

  1. Solid reporting of Trump fever dreams and washed up late night garbage. You guys gonna smear another minor next?

  2. I don’t think Carson would have been political today – he told political jokes but only what was drawn from the news – not partisan

  3. Children everywhere must be shown the true teaching of Jesus. So they can avoid all the priests, preachers and pastors of all religions; the many self-indulgent false prophets who easily lead children astray. When only Jesus (in the name of Immanuel) is the Son of man and the true Prophet who was sent by the Lord God, to be always our one Teacher…

    These are the words of the Lord God:
    “I will raise up for them a prophet like you [Moses] from among their fellow Israelites, and I will put my words in his mouth.” – (at Deuteronomy 18: 18) –

    “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign: A young woman is with child, and she will bear a son, and will call him Immanuel.” [“God is with us”] – (The Prophet Isaiah 7: 14) –

    “If you have ears to hear, then hear.” – (Jesus, in the name of Immanuel, the Messiah, at Mark 4: 23) –

    “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” – (Jesus at John 4: 24) –

    “In truth I tell you, anyone who gives heed to what I say and puts his trust in him who sent me, has hold of eternal life and does not come up for judgement, but has already passed from death to life.” – (at John 5: 24) –

    “Beware of false prophets, men who come to you dressed up as sheep while underneath they are savage wolves. You will recognize them by the fruits they bear.” – (at Matthew 7: 15-16) –

    “Do not call any man on earth ‘father’; for you have one Father and he is in heaven. Nor must you be called ‘teacher’; you have one Teacher, the Messiah.” – (Matthew 23: 9-10) –

    “Take care that no one misleads you: For many will come claiming my name…” – (Jesus, at Matthew 24: 4) –
    “Many false prophets will arise, and will mislead many; and as lawlessness spreads, men’s love for one another will grow cold. But the man who holds out to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the Kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the earth as a testimony to all nations; and then the end will come.” – (Matthew 24: 11-14) –

    “I am the way; I am the truth and I am life; no one comes to the Father except by me. If you knew me you would know my Father too.” – (John 14: 6-7) –

    “When you pray, go into a room by yourself, and shut the door. Pray to your Father who is there in the secret place; and your Father who sees what is secret will reward you.
    In your prayers do not go babbling on like the heathen, who imagine that the more they say the more likely they are to be heard.
    Do not imitate them. Your Father knows what your needs are before you ask him.
    This is how you should pray:
    Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
    Your kingdom come; your will be done, on earth as in heaven,
    Give us today our daily bread,
    Forgive us the wrong we have done, as we have forgiven those who have wronged us.
    And do not bring us to the test, but save us from the evil one.
    For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, for ever.
    Amen.
    For if you forgive others the wrongs they have done, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, then the wrongs you have done will not be forgiven by your Father.” – (at Matthew 6: 6-15) –

    “Pass no judgement, and you will not be judged. For as you judge others, so you will yourselves be judged, and whatever measure you deal out to others will be dealt back to you.” – (Matthew 7: 1-2) –

    “Truly I tell you; if anyone obeys my teaching, he shall never know what it is to die.” – (John 8: 51) –

    “Always treat others as you would like them to treat you: that is the Law and the Prophets.
    Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life and only a few find it.” – (Matthew 7: 12-14) –

    “I am the gate; anyone who comes into the fold through me shall be safe. He shall go in and out and shall find pasturage.
    The thief comes only to steal, to kill, to destroy; I have come that men may have life, and may have it in all its fullness.” – (John 10: 9-10) –

    “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” – (Matthew 7: 21) –
    “I am the resurrection and I am life. If a man has faith in me, even though he dies, he shall come to life; and anyone who is alive and has faith shall never die.” – (John 11: 25-26) –

    “I have not come to judge the world, but to save the world” – (John 12: 47) –
    “Whoever will acknowledge me before men, I will acknowledge him before my Father in heaven; and whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.” – (Matthew 10: 32-34) –

    “Any plant that is not of my heavenly Father’s planting will be rooted up. Leave them alone; they are blind guides, and if one blind man guides another they will both fall into the ditch.” – (Matthew 15: 13-14) –

    “The disciples came to Jesus and asked, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven?’
    He called a child, set him in front of them, and said, ‘I tell you this: unless you turn round and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven.
    Let a man humble himself till he is like this child, and he will be the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven. Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me. But if a man is a cause of stumbling to one of these little ones who have faith in me, it would be better for him to have a millstone hung round his neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea.
    Alas for the world that such causes of stumbling arise! Come they must, but woe betide the man through who they come!’” – (Matthew 18: 1-7) –

    “Though many are called, few are chosen.” – (Matthew 22: 14) –

    “An expert in the law, [a leading religious Pharisee] tested him with this question: ‘Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?’ He answered, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind. That is the greatest commandment. It comes first. The second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself.
    Everything in the Law and the Prophets hangs on these two commandments.’” – (Matthew 22: 35-40) –
    “There is no greater love than this, that a man should lay down his life for his friends.” – (John 15: 13) –

    “Stay awake, and pray that you may be spared the test: The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” – (Matthew 26: 41) –
    “However, when he comes who is the Spirit of truth; he will guide you into all the truth.” – (John 16: 13) –

    “Teach them to observe all that I have commanded you. And be assured, I am with you always, to the end of time.” – (Matthew 28: 20)

    Yours, in true Spirit and in our one given prayer, 2gointruth, on Thursday the 8th of July, 2021: – (Matthew 5:14-16) – Where every minute (of both day and night) can be a new beginning for any one of us. Let it always be you. Pray to God often before it is too late.
