John Oliver opened Last Week Tonight Sunday night with a message directly to the terrorists who attacked France on Friday night. “F**k these assholes,” Oliver said. Oliver took full advantage of being on HBO by launching into a profanity-filled message and deriding the terrorists for trying to start a culture war with France. “We know this attack was carried out by gigantic f**king assholes - unconscionable flaming assholes, possibly working with other f**king assholes, definitely working in service of an ideology of pure assholery,” Oliver said.

Colbert added a special segment to the Late Show, while Maher asked his panel - which included Jay Leno, Michael Steele and Dylan Ratigan - about the attacks.
