i know. and here he is with wingman joe biden, just doing some light jogging in their dress pants so when they meet putin later, their balls are nice n' stanky. this week, he submitted to the ultimate enemy of productivity-- he joined facebook! [ applause ] i crist a shrewd and forward political move he says it's going to be a place where people can share thoughts and stories and "some just for fun stuff too." so, you know, facebook. just explained facebook on facebook. [ applause ] >> chris: comedians what just of "just for fun" facebook stuff will the potus be posting? david- go! >> is racist and send swat team to the house.
>> phil. >> he wants to look up old girlfriends but none have facebook. >> chris: eugene. >> he's posting videos of hosting putting on condoms. >> chris: it's time for @midnight! >> chris: welcome to @midnight. i'm chris hardwick. tonight is tag team tuesday! tonight's comedians are playing for three lucky followers of the @midnight twitter account, so they and their tag team partners will both be winners. tonight's comedians are: host of "going deep with david rees," premiering tomorrow on esquire network, it's david rees. well done. you are playing for @tulok. martin mcman termly irish right there.

[laughing] >> chris: ripped from today's internet headlines, it's rapid
"saturday night live" caused a bit of a hullabaloo when they had fancy deli meat sculpture donald trump host the show this weekend. critics panned it, but in snl's defense, trump hasn't been funny since that time he guest starred on "sabado gigante." there he is right there. he got that canceled. "snl" got their highest ratings in years, but due to the fcc's equal time rule, nbc must now offer the other candidates the same time 12 minutes 5 seconds of air time. exact same amount of airtime they gave trump, specifically 12 minutes and five seconds. nbc said that their time doesn't necessarily have to be on "snl", as much as we'd like to see ted cruz whip out his zooey -- his ted burns i am personnization. >> thises did on for 12 more
minutes. >> chris: yes. comedians how will trump's rivals use their 12 minutes on nbc? >> they will replay ted cruz to catch a predator episode. >> well timed. one minute 12 times. >> chris: points. david. >> jeb bush will go on "blind spot" it's a met for for where he is in the -- metaphor for where he is in the polls. >> chris: perfect. eugene mirman. >> mike huckabee will be on "heroes" where in every scene he will yell "witch" over and over. [cheers and applause] >> chris: alright points to aou tkpwaoepblg mir man. if you're a family of four
chances are you have been to sea world. they're killing the killer whale show. classic spectacle where hundreds of screaming children get to see mentally disturbed animals break with reality in real time before checking out some clinically depressed jellyfish and buying an $18 otter magnet. comedians, now that killer whale shows are canceled, what are some new shows seaworld is introducing to take their place? phil. >> you can't cancel the orca show. once you go black fish you can't go back fish. you can't do it. >> chris: points. david rees. >> i'll going to say multi member giant squid massage parlors. perfect for bachelor parties. >> chris: listen one of those eight arms has to be a happy ending. that's the end of rapid refresh. now it's time for #hashtagwars.
[cheers and applause] >> chris: one of my favorite people bill nye's new book "unstoppable: harnessing science to change the world" came out today. in it, nye encourages us all to become "science guys" and figure out a way to not totally (/ bleep/ ) up the planet with r hairspray and cow farts. so we're going to add a bit more science to the world with tonight's hashtag: #scienceabook #scienceabook examples: "50 shades of gray matter", "catcher in the riboflavin", and "the fault in our burning gaseous spheres". i'm putting 60 seconds on the clock, starting... now! phil. >> how the grinch stole his fesuc. >> chris: phil eugene. >> war and pea sample. >> cat on a hot tin roof.

[cheers and applause] >> chris: welcome back to @midnight. it's time to play.uúfashion police. here's the deal. the '70s had two things: terrible fashion and cop shows. anytime you turned on any one of the three available channels, there was throw channels that's it. you'd see some mustachioed jagoff in a plaid suit throwing a pimp dressed-like-a-disco-cheetah into the back of a pontiac dickwagon. we collected a bunch of terrible images from '70s men's fashion catalogues, and comedians, for 250 points, i want you to tell me what their cop show would be called. first up, these fellas who dress to the left, what would you call their cop show? >> oh, man.
chris: phil. >> show her and grow her. a spin off foreskin and mushroom top was the spin off. >> chris: points. eugene. >> good dick, bad dick. chris: yes, points. >> they're both both. [laughing] [laughing] [cheers and applause] >> chris: david. >> murder she scrote. chris: yes. oh. does that star ang tkpw ela glas berry. >> chris: next up these leotarreded fellas. what the [beep] are they looking what is intriguing in the opposite directions ? >> they're looking at the

>> csi sells sea shells down by the sea shore. >> nailed it. chris: points. [cheers and applause] >> chris: next one, this mismatched pair, what would you call their cop show? >> mmm. >> my. chris: david. >> the name of the show is private invest-gators. i will explain the logic of the joke. the second cill balance in investigators is vest. a noun that's described as a sleeve less garment worn over a torso. you will notice both of the people in the photograph are remarkable not just for their hair but the vests they're wearing. there is internal logic for my humor. >> chris: there is, yes. [cheers and applause] >> chris: next up, these bundled birds, what would you call their cop show? [laughing]

"sesame street" churned out a lot of classic kids tunes ove the years, most stuck in my head. but maybe none more iconic than kermit the frog's "it's not easy being green." ya, that's how you [beep] rock a kermit. nowadays, though, it actually seems real easy being green. i mean, kermit's got an abc sitcom and things are going

we go now live to a joint press conference between president barack obama and speaker of the house john boehner, where they are expected to give an update on fiscal cliff negotiations. well, good afternoon, and thank you for coming. as you know, speaker boehner and i have spent the afternoon together, and we'd like to announce that we have reached an agreement to avoid the fiscal cliff. in order to get the support of the speaker, i agreed there would be no tax increases. i repeat-- zero tax increases. now, why would i do that? i mean, i won the election. i had the leverage. why give in? well, simply put, i felt sorry for this man. i realized how badly the republican party treats him when he even considers raising taxes.
