The Best Late Night Clips of the Week (VIDEO/PHOTOS)

We'll have to wait until next week to see if and how the late night shows tackle the tragic shooting in Aurora, Colorado (except for Craig Ferguson, who delivered a heartfelt speech Friday night). This past week, after several hosts were on their 4th of July vacations, the action mostly focused on the various issues plaguing Mitt Romney, from his inconsistent Bain Capital timeline to his mysterious tax returns and his search for the anti-Sarah Palin.

Other late night highlights this week include Louis CK clearing up his unintentional defense of Daniel Tosh, Newt Gingrich finally coming face-to-face with Snooki and Aaron Paul's secret past as a contestant on The Price is Right.

Below are my favorite clips of the week. What were yours?
