Conan O'Brien got serious during his monologue last night.
"This story really hits home for anyone who, day in and day out, mocks political, social, and religious figures. In this country, we just take it for granted that it's our right to poke fun at the untouchable or the sacred, but today's tragedy in Paris reminds us very viscerally that it's a right some people are inexplicably forced to die for."
Jon Stewart, as per usual, was on point with his commentary.
"You know, I think we'd all agree 2014 was not a great year for people, but I think the hope was 2015 would bring sort of a respite from the terrible events that have become all too familiar for us, but our hearts are with the staff of Charlie Hedbo and their families tonight. I know very people go into comedy as an act of courage mainly because it shouldn't have to be that. It shouldn't be an act of courage…A stark reminder that, for the most part, the legislators and journalists and institutions that we jab and ridicule are not in any way the enemy."
