Welcome to Best of Late Night, a roundup of last night’s highlights that you can sleep with – and get paid to watch comedy with. Here are the 50 best movies on Netflix right now.

Fox News has not said why it ousted Tucker Carlson.

Late night hosts speculated that he was fired because of the texts he sent mocking former President Donald Trump and Fox executives.

“Fox didn’t care if Tucker said vulgar, offensive things on television about other people, but when he said it privately about Fox News executives, they were suddenly outraged,” said Seth Meyers.

“I have no idea why he was fired. Fox had no problem with his brutality, racism and paranoid conspiracy theories, so I doubt he was fired for that. I mean, firing Tucker now for racism – after tolerating it for so long – would be like canceling ‘Sesame Street’ because you just found out they were puppets.” — SETH MEYERS

“But what could they have about Tucker Carlson that would embarrass him? Has he ever tried to buy an economical car? I mean, does he have a collection of paintings that are not Hitler’s?” —JIMMY KIMMEL

Black Thought and El Michels Affair brought soul singer Kirby to “The Tonight Show” on Wednesday for a performance of “Glorious Game.”
