Roll Over Dr. Dre, Dr. Oz Is Taking Over Hip-Hop: Late-Night Comedy Roundup

PLUS: President Obama disses Vladimir Putin, Bill Clinton withholds his sex-scandal seal of approval –and more.

As part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign, a hip hop album is going to be released for schools to teach children about healthy living. The first track was released recently and Jimmy Kimmel took note of Dr. Mehmet Oz being featured on it, saying “Well, you know kids love Dr. Oz.” TBS’ Conan O’Brien also joked about the album, saying it will probably be more effective than previous efforts to curb marijuana abuse by way of a reggae record.

President Barack Obama cancelled a meeting with Russian President this week, citing diplomatic problems with Russia. O’Brien joked about meeting terms and referenced the photograph of the Russian leader shirtless on horseback. The Daily Show’s John Oliver looked at some of the reasons given for the cancellation and wondered if the fervor over gay rights in Russia was really a cover for Russia’s treatment of Edward Snowden. Joking about figure skating, Oliver dismissed the Olympics reasoning saying Russia won’t allow homosexuality “where you either wear a skintight unitard or a sparkly tuxedo for your ice ballet.”

Fast forward to 4:55 to see Oliver give a suggestion as to how to get Snowden back from Russia.
