There were two main stories that dominated the late night shows this week: Mitt Romney's choice of Paul Ryan to be, in his words, "the next President of the United States" and the return home of the Olympic medal winners.
Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and David Letterman each took their turns introducing Paul Ryan to the American people. The U.S. Women's Gymnastics' "Fierce Five" showed up on several shows. Bill Maher returned from hiatus not a moment too soon and late night gained a brand new show from producer Chris Rock.
