The big Late Show Christmas show aired on CBS this week (Friday 20th December).
John McEnroe stood in for Jay Thomas who had injuries preventing him from making his annual appearance on the show.
McEnroe read out Jay Thomas’s legendary Lone Ranger story from cue cards and did a decent enough job.
He then had a go at the Quarterback Challenge but this time (as it was John McEnroe) the footballs were substituted for tennis balls being hit with a tennis racket.
Darlene Love gave her usual flawless performance of Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) at the end of the show – I think this gets better every year, I really do.
Kristin Wiig of Saturday Night Live fame was the other guest on the Christmas show talking about her three films out for the Christmas period (yes, three!).
Other highlights from the big show were a segment about the Late Show Christmas Party and a segment about celebrities getting gifts they hate but have to pretend they like them.
Clips are available below. Be sure to watch the Quarterback Challenge clip to find out if John McEnroe managed to knock the meatball off the tree and click here to watch Quarterback Challenge highlights from past years.
