10. Finally, the comedian Michelle Wolf has worked on both “The Daily Show” and “Late Night,” and Trevor Noah and Seth Meyers defended her controversial remarks at the White House correspondents’ dinner on Saturday. (Above, Ms. Wolf and Mr. Meyers last year.)

“Michelle should have had the decency not to comment on women’s appearances in any way, shape or form,” Mr. Noah deadpanned. “She’s a comedian, for God’s sake, not the president.”
