People threw things on late-night television Tuesday — stones in the form of jokes directed at Sen. Ted Cruz, who is in the news this week after his personal Twitter account "liked" a pornographic post.
Many of the jokes were appropriately "blue," in the comic parlance, and won't be repeated here, but that is only traditional for after-hours comedy.
Seth Meyers on "Late Night": "'Ew, gross' …. said porn stars after hearing that Ted Cruz watched them."
Tennis champ Serena Williams' daughter made her social media debut on Wednesday in an intimate portrait of her cuddling with Mom.
Born Sept. 1, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. weighed in at 6 pounds, 14 ounces — and she's already got one grand slam title, the new mom quipped in a YouTube video accompanying her Instagram reveal.
"So we're leaving the hospital after six, seven days," Williams says at the end of the clip, which documented several moments from her pregnancy. "It's been a long time, but we had a lot of complications. But look who we got — we got a baby girl!"
I have this weird, contradictory relationship with the audience when I'm onstage, where I'm totally doing everything for them and there's that great relationship that happens with everybody in the room. But I also totally pretend that they don't exist, during the songs at least. The more voyeuristic it can be, the better it will be.
Originally planned as a benefit for Hurricane Harvey survivors, Tuesday's one-hour telethon will air commercial-free at 8 p.m. Eastern and be rebroadcast at 8 p.m. Pacific for the West Coast.

Man, have James Woods, Armie Hammer, Amber Tamblyn and David Cross been throwing down on Twitter this week. The topic: adults in sexual relationships with teenagers.
The inciting incident was a Sunday tweet from Woods commenting on a gay conservative's opinion that Hammer's new movie, "Call Me by Your Name," celebrates adults having sex with teens. "24 year old man. 17 year old boy. Stop," wrote Chad Felix Green.
In "Call Me by Your Name," Hammer, 31, portrays a 24-year-old graduate student who has a romantic and physical relationship with the 17-year-old son of a professor who is hosting him for six weeks abroad one summer.
Not much has changed for the "Curb Your Enthusiasm" scribe and star since his idiosyncratic comedy went off the air in 2011 -- except that he's older.
