From Denny: In this summer heat we all can use a good laugh! Here's the latest from the late night show comics.

This Week's roundup of the Sunday funnies.

The Daily Show

Jon Stewart:
The United States gave the Iraqis the key back to their own cities. Don't worry, we made a copy.

The Late Late Show

Craig Ferguson:
The show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" is returning to prime time. But due to the recession, it's being renamed "Who Wants Five Bucks and a Taco?"

Late Show

David Letterman:
Here is good news for Bernie Madoff: Only 149 years, 50 weeks to go.

The Colbert Report

Stephen Colbert:
[Clip from CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360" show] "Tonight, connecting with one of Michael Jackson's old friends and perhaps one of the oddest, Bubbles, the chimp." Colbert: Congratulations, Anderson. This is even bigger than your 2006 sit-down with Saddam Hussein's beloved pet, Khalid Sheikh Mohamster. [Screeb shows hamster dressed as Saddam Hussein.]

And the week I missed somehow... Statue of Liberty Reopens

The Tonight Show

Jay Leno:
It was hot today. Wasn't it? I tell you. Oh, I was sweating like John Edwards waiting to watch his wife on "Oprah."

Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

Jimmy Fallon:
The crown at the top of the Statue of Liberty will reopen on the Fourth of July for the first time since 9/11. Isn't that cool? Visitors will now be able to touch Air Force One as it flies right past them.

The Late Show

David Letterman:
Here's a public service announcement now from Joe Biden. Remember that the sun's rays can cause painful sunburn and long-term skin damage. To be safe, between now and October, do not leave your home. Message from Joe Biden, "Time to Panic."

The Late Late Show

Craig Ferguson:
The state of Maine today legalized gay marriage. Maine became comfortable with the idea after years of touching Canada.
