[ cheers and applause ] >> seth: you guys may have also noticed. fred armisen is back with us this week. how are you, buddy? >> fred: good. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: i am always so thrilled
to have fred here for many reasons. one of those reasons is i love television but one of my problems with television is, i can't possibly keep up with all the great shows that are on tv. fred, however, insists to me that he watches every single show that's on tv from start to finish. true or false, fred? >> fred: oh, that's very true. [ laughter ] >> seth: very true. which means it's time once again for "fred armisen's extremely accurate tv recap." [ cheers and applause ] so you know how this works, fred. if what you're saying is true, you know what happens on every episode of every show. so i'm just going to give you the title of the show, and then you just explain what happened on last week's episode. that cool? >> fred: oh, yeah. okay. >> seth: okay, great. [ laughter ] the show is called "haven." >> fred: oh, haven. you don't know haven? >> seth: no, i've never seen it. >> fred: none of it? >> seth: no. >> fred: not the pilot, nothing? >> seth: no, i didn't see the pilot. >> fred: "haven" is great. it's so captivating. it's this -- sort of like "friday night lights" type of show.
>> seth: okay. [ laughter ] >> fred: and the team are called the havens. [ laughter ] and they don't have another team to play against. so they scramble around the field, they run around. [ laughter ] and you just get to meet all the characters, like all the players. there's the quarterback, there's the running back. there's, you know, defense. there's offense. [ laughter ] and they're so good, but they're -- their town is so small, and can barely afford a football. [ laughter ] you know, uniforms. and they just want another team to play with. and so the most recent episode was they started, like, trying to, like, make one uniform for one person. like we'll just do one. [ laughter ] that's going to get us, you know? so they just start stitching stuff together. a lot of close-ups of the stitching, you know. [ laughter ] it was great. it was really good. sort of like real life. >> seth: that's great. do you have to watch from the beginning or can you just jump in and knowing what's going on? >> fred: you have to watch from the beginning. >> seth: okay, gotcha. [ laughter ] >> fred: you have not seen it, right? >> seth: no, i haven't seen it. >> fred: okay, okay. you have to.
>> seth: okay. great. so it's "haven" and it's about a town with one football team, and they don't even have a uniform and they can barely afford a football. >> fred: the havens. >> seth: the havens, right. again, i don't want to doubt you, but according to tv guide, "haven" airs on sci-fi. and last week's episode description says to stop croatoan and end the troubles, nathan must travel back to 1983. >> fred: 1983, yeah. [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> seth: to the moment when his son, the colorado kid, was murdered. >> fred: how about that? [ laughter ] >> seth: thank you. give it up for fred armisen, everybody.

[ laughter ] >> seth: that hurts, senator. that hurts. governor bush, moving to you. why do you think you would make a great president of the united states? >> what i said was, i don't believe that i would be president of the united states. >> seth: oh, okay. [ laughter ] >> don't vote for me. >> seth: oh, yeah. i don't think that's going to be much of an issue. [ laughter ] governor kasich, i read in the "washington post" you use some unorthodox methods to prepare for this debate. for example, it says here that you made love to your wife last night to relax. can you tell us about that? >> it was the first time we did it since man walked on the moon. [ laughter and applause ] >> seth: and how do you ensure that it was pleasurable for both parties? >> know what you're doing. creativity. >> seth: mr. trump, would you like to respond? >> first of all, john got lucky with a thing called fracking, okay?
he hit oil. he got lucky with fracking. [ light laughter ] >> seth: this next question is for senator paul. senator, what would you say if this guy showed up to a party you were hosting? >> here's the thing -- >> seth: excellent. [ laughter ] that's 100% right. [ applause ] senator rubio, the next question is for you. what does your family dress up as for halloween? >> my dad was a bartender, my mother was a maid. >> seth: excellent. excellent costumes. i'm sorry, need to go back to governor bush for a second. governor, why don't you want to be president? >> i can't do it. >> seth: fair enough. [ laughter ] mr. trump, moving on to you with a culinary question. have you ever baked a devils food cake using a duncan hines cake mix and if so, how did it turn out? >> i've used it three times, maybe four times. came out great. [ laughter ] >> seth: congratulations. congratulations. governor christie, what would you say to the american people if you were invited into an orgy they were hosting?
>> i'm prepared, i'm tested, i'm ready. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: those are the three we were looking for. governor huckabee, a serious question. have you ever been a bad boy? >> no, sir! >> seth: okay! [ laughter ] dr. carson, in 15 seconds or less, can you explain how your tax plan works? >> you're talking about $2.7 trillion. we have a budget closer to $3.5 trillion. but if you also apply that same 15% to -- >> seth: five seconds, dr. carson. >> several other things, including corporate taxes -- [ buzzer ] >> seth: and you're done. i'm sorry, governor huckabee, do you think he would have done any better if i gave him 20 seconds? >> no, sir! >> seth: oh! [ light laughter ] who's a big boy? sorry again, and i hate to do this, but i would like to go back to governor bush.
what do you have to say to the donors who spend millions to try to get you elected? >> they failed miserably. [ laughter ] >> seth: and your campaign? >> it is broken, it is not working. >> seth: all right, very honest. thank you. dr. carson, you seem like a very interesting person. would you like to go grab dinner sometime? >> well, obviously, you don't understand my views on homosexuality. [ laughter ] >> seth: i didn't mean a date. i just -- dinner. geez. [ light laughter ] mr. trump, how do you feel about olive garden's never-ending pasta bowls. >> they're a feeding frenzy for sick people. [ laughter and applause ] >> seth: yeah, very good breadsticks, though. very good breadsticks. senator paul, moving to you, yes or no, would you ever install a trampoline in your backyard? >> is there an area for a safety net? >> seth: i said yes or no! mrs. fiorina, can you give me a statistic that sounds completely made up? >> 92% of the jobs lost during barack obama's first term
belonged to women. >> seth: wow. is it safe to assume that's totally untrue? [ laughter ] and if we fact-check it, we'll find out that you just flat out lied to us? [ laughter ] mr. trump, as you know, recreational marijuana is now legal in four states. do you, uh, know where i might be able to, uh, score some weed and follow up? do you have any? >> i do carry on occasion. sometimes a lot. but i like to be unpredictable. [ laughter ] >> seth: cool, cool, cool. cool, cool, cool. i'm going to hit you up afterwards. [ cheers and applause ] governor bush, and, again, i hate to belabor the point, but i want to come back to you. let's say by some miracle you actually get elected and you have to be president? what would you do then? >> just resign and let someone else take the job.

[ cheers and applause ] >> seth: very well-deserved. and we saw each other recently at an event. we were at glamour women of the year. and i came up to you because i wanted to apologize. we were in the same row at the emmys. >> yes. >> seth: and you had the wonderful seat. you were right on the aisle. >> yes. >> seth: i was right in the middle. and i had to make you get up seven or eight times. >> seven or eight? [ laughter ] >> seth: okay. so i was -- that's on the low end. >> yeah. >> seth: but it was very nice because i apologized to you at the glamour event and you said it was fine. >> yeah. [ laughter ] but really you got on my nerves. [ laughter ] >> seth: okay, i believe it. >> i was like, "does he have to pee that much?" [ light laughter ] >> seth: also, what really makes me feel bad is not just -- it's not like making somebody get up at a movie. you're in a full, beautiful gown. like it is not -- >> absolutely. at some point i know i gave you the -- you know, one of those eyes. >> seth: right.
>> i was like, "again?" [ light laughter ] >> seth: backstage -- i was backstage thinking i really want you to win for two reasons. one, you deserve it. and two, i felt like if you won you might forget what a pain in the an ass i've been all night. [ laughter ] you gave such a wonderfully impactful speech when you won. during it did you have a sense of the impact it was making? >> no. i felt a great wall of silence. >> seth: okay. >> i said, "i am dying a quick death." [ laughter ] and my husband afterwards said, "vi, i didn't know where you were going with that. [ laughter ] i really didn't. i was real glad when you said harriet tubman. [ laughter ] then i was like, 'she bringing it home. she bringing it home.'" [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: oh, that's good. that is very good. you know, one of the things most people remember about that is you talked about the difference between talent and opportunity -- >> yes. >> seth: -- in hollywood. why is that such a hard concept for people, particularly people in hollywood, to grasp?
>> i just think it's a hard thing for anyone to grasp, that just the size of someone's talent is not comparable to their opportunity. there are a lot of talented women of color out there. they just haven't had the opportunity to shine. a lot of times we're the third girl from the left. >> seth: right. >> you know? and i just wanted to make that distinction, that the reason why we haven't been around -- i was the first african-american woman to win in that category -- is only because we haven't had the opportunity to shine. >> seth: yeah. >> not the talent, the opportunity. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: so wonderful. have you -- because obviously unlike a part you play on television where you have multiple takes or a film, you got to do it once. have you watched it since? have you ever gone back and watched your speech? >> no, i have not. [ light laughter ] >> seth: why not? why haven't you watched it? >> have you ever listened to your voice after you -- >> seth: i can't. >> you can't stand it, right? >> seth: no, i can't stand it, yeah.

one of those people i'll call down for room service and they'll say, "oh, yeah, mr. davis." [ laughter ] and i get so mad. and then i hear my voice and i'm like, "oh, god, i can understand the mr. davis." [ laughter ] >> seth: here's the thing. i think you just looked absolutely beautiful at the emmys. there you are. [ cheers and applause ] so you talk about sort of opportunity. obviously annalise keating is such an incredible opportunity. such a good part. has it been -- how fun is it to play a character like that? >> it is so much fun. >> seth: yeah. >> because i'm getting outside my comfort zone. you know, the sex scenes? >> seth: how are the sex scenes? you do a lot of sex scenes. [ laughter ] >> well -- [ laughter ] -- i love body makeup. >> seth: okay. >> i love the censors. they used to be -- i was like, "why do they have to censor everything? i want to hear the cuss words. i want to see the nudity. that's life." now i love it.
[ laughter ] i love that you can see just me from the knee down. you see a little bit of the arms. you know, it's uncomfortable. >> seth: yeah. >> yeah. >> seth: but you get through it and they look great on television, so. >> they do? >> seth: yeah. looks good. [ laughter ] >> well -- >> seth: i like when i see up to the knees and i'm like, "let my imagination do the rest!" >> yeah. [ laughter ] but i just love playing it. >> seth: and obviously you get to work with shonda rhimes. what -- i mean, i think we all know her as sort of an industry more than a person. you know the person. what is it like to actually work with her? >> well, you know, she's not really -- the creator of "how to get away with murder" is pete nowalk. but shonda as a woman is very shy. which you would not imagine. >> seth: no. >> because in public she is bold, she is kind of my, you know, my spirit warrior kind of, in public. 'cause she'd just out there. and in private she's very shy. she likes her white wine, which i do, too. and i like red wine, too. and i like vodka -- i like all of them. [ laughter and applause ] >> seth: so if we're sending you alcohol, you're not that picky.
>> oh, yeah, yeah. i love it all. >> seth: okay, great. >> i love it all. but -- and you do partake of the wine in her office. but i just love her imagination. and i love that she accepts you exactly how you are. which is hard in this business where everybody is a carbon copy of someone else. and i didn't get in it for that. so i'm glad she sees me for exactly who i am, my size, my color, everything. she's just completely accepting. >> seth: that's fantastic. [ cheers and applause ] now, very lucky that the two of you found each other. i also want to talk to you about the work you're doing with an incredible organization, hunger is. >> yes. >> seth: tell me a little bit, tell us all a little bit about this. >> well, hunger is, is an initiative that the entertainment industry foundation and the safeway stores started to eradicate childhood hunger in america. there's, like, one out of every five children in america is in a food-poor environment. that means no meals. and that's not even people who
are poor. even middle class people after they pay their rent, electricity, have no food. sometimes it's like just lunch at school and that's the only meal. and during the summer, you know, school is over. and i was one of those kids that by 8:30 in the morning i was falling asleep. i just couldn't get at the business of being me because i was always hungry and ashamed. and so i joined this whole initiative because in america, i'm sorry, it's a solvable problem. to just have people have something to eat, you know? so they could fuel their spirit, their mind, their test scores go up. and they're just better people. and i just encourage anyone, if you have a quarter to give, if you go to hungeris.org to give any money, time, whatever, to just help a kid. that's the least you can do. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: well, thank you so much for your work with that
organization. congratulations again on all your success. >> thank you. >> seth: so happy to have you here. viola davis, everyone. the season two winter finale of "how to get away with murder" airs thursday night at 10:00 pm on abc. we'll be back with more "late night."

[ light laughter ] >> seth: right. >> so santa is not enough, we need an evil version. so he's like -- he's the one that comes if you're naughty and, like, beats you with sticks and kidnaps you and things. >> seth: on christmas, as well. >> on christmas, yes. >> seth: unbelievable that the germans didn't think that kids could get it up for christmas. they needed to incentivize them with an evil krampus. >> they needed a more -- like, a terrifying holiday bogeyman. >> seth: yeah. and you shot it in new zealand. >> we did, yeah. >> seth: how was it being in new zealand? >> it was great. new zealand is beautiful. we were in wellington and it was their spring so it was like windy and rainy, which i love, because i just recently left chicago. so i was like, "oh, weather! this is great!" [ light laughter ] but it was wonderful. we shot inside the whole time
though, we were on sound stages. >> seth: adam scott was here after he got back from new zealand. >> yeah. >> seth: and he was saying that new zealand people -- he's one of your co stars. he was saying that they don't say, like, "hi, how are you?" they like, ask what are you doing for the rest of the day. they really want to be involved in your day. did you find this issue? >> they're aggressively friendly there. they really are. more so to the guys. like, i think than me. i was always like the girl off to the side with, like, adam and koechner. yeah, very much so. and david koechner, who plays my husband tended to accept those invitations. >> seth: oh, so like if people told him we're doing something, he'd just go off with strangers? >> yeah. like, he did so many open mic nights and variety shows when he was there. he was, like, fully entrenched in the comedy scene by the time we left. everyone was sad to see him go. >> seth: and tell me -- you won, what was it, like was it a lottery? what did you win? a -- [ laughter ] >> so -- [ laughter ] this is an amazing story. so one night -- david and i spent a lot of time together and we went to a bar. and as soon as we walked in, we sat down at the bar, and the bartender said "oh, good. you're just in time for the meat
raffle." >> seth: okay. [ laughter ] i feel like i have a hundred follow-up questions. [ laughter ] >> there's more! so then he gave us tickets. we each got like two tickets. and we were like, "cool! whatever, we'll have whiskey." and then we immediately won the meat raffle. [ laughter ] >> seth: uncooked meat? >> uncook -- raw meat! >> seth: okay, gotcha. [ light laughter ] >> i don't -- >> seth: yeah. >> just raw meat. so then we were like, well, we're living in hotels. like, we can't -- what -- thank you for the meat. [ laughter ] but what can we do with is it? so i talked them into letting us start a meat tab. where we just kept -- >> seth: at the restaurant? >> at the restaurant. where we kept all of the meat there, and then we could just come back and be like, "we would like to withdraw -- [ laughter ] -- some meat, please." and then they would cook it. >> seth: i would love to say i'll definitely do that if i ever win a meat raffle, but i don't know if that's a life experience i'm gonna need. >> i don't know if that's gonna happen. i don't know. >> seth: i think it's exciting, because i remember being of the age when nothing was more fun than going to see a horror movie. and i feel like we're in the era
now where horror movies like -- not only are they rated r, but they're like, super r? >> yeah. >> seth: like terrifying, horrible nonsense. >> absolutely. >> seth: but this is pg-13. but one of the things means you have to then re-record lines at some point, yes? >> yes. we really wanted to keep that pg-13 rating. and i love all of the awful, scary horrible horror movies, as well. but this one is really fun, because it is sort of -- like, baby's first horror movie. like, it's good to watch. [ light laughter ] for scaredy cats and teenagers. >> seth: great. >> you know, but yeah, you have to -- we really wanted to keep that rating. and so you can only say so many curse words so many times. and i said the "f" word at one point in time. and it was like the only take we had. but then they decided that they wanted that "f" word to go to conchata ferrell and i didn't get to keep it. so then i had to rerecord it. >> seth: it's that close. >> you get one. >> seth: one, and if it's two, it's r. >> yes. >> seth: because if a kid hears it once, they might forget it. but if they hear it twice -- [ laughter ] -- it establishes a pattern. >> maybe i misunderstood. i didn't misunderstand! >> seth: yeah! i'm gonna go home, and you're like, "what's up mom, i just saw
a [ bleep ] movie!" [ laughter ] >> exactly. exactly. >> seth: we get one too. so don't -- >> is that it? can i say -- >> seth: nope. >> i would have used it in the story earlier. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah, i know. my show, my rules. [ cheers and applause ] so what did you do? you only had the one take of you saying it, what did you do? >> so we went in to loop it later in the sound booth and spent half an hour trying to figure out what else i should say that still packs a punch. >> seth: because you have to match your own lips. >> you have to match your lips, yeah. >> seth: so what did you come up with? >> i really wanted it to be fart-knocker. like so badly. but i think it's fudger. >> seth: yeah. they're both -- >> which is fine. but fart-knocker would have been so funny. >> seth: that would have been so much better. although i feel like if you ever hear fart-knocker or fudger, even, like, a 12-year-old kid knows what's going on. oh, they dubbed over the "f" word and they think i'm not smart enough to know what it is. >> exactly. yeah, and some people will still be offended by fart-knocker. >> seth: that's true. well, i'm offended they didn't use it. >> yeah! >> seth: come on.
that needs to be in more movies. >> i don't know. >> seth: but i do think -- hopefully in your next film you get to say it. >> i hope so, too. more cursing! >> seth: more cursing! >> yes, please. >> seth: thank you so much for being back on the show. it's such a pleasure to see you. >> thank you so much. >> seth: allison tolman, everybody. check out "krampus" in theaters december 4th. we'll be right back with the scottos!
