WATCH: ‘The Daily Show,’ ‘Colbert Report’ take on royal baby

“The big story tonight, everybody, over 500 Al-Qaeda leaders have escaped from Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, and with Iraq facing over 1,000 sectarian killings a month, experts fear the country once again in plunging into a bloody civil war,” Stephen Colbert said at the top of “Colbert Report” on Tuesday. “For more, go someplace else — because there’s a royal BAAAABY!” he ended, Oprah-style.

Meanwhile, John Oliver dedicated a segment to the royal baby as one correspondent ticked off a list of items on the baby’s registry, which included a corgi saddle, the entire country of Ireland, and a new Dr. Seuss book, “Oh, the Places You’ll Rule!”
