Kimmel vs. Colbert: It's Our Clip of the Week Face-Off

Would You Rather Watch Colbert Needle Fox News or Parents Traumatize Children at Kimmel's Behest?

By Published on .

Sometimes it's really easy to pick our Clip of the Week, but this week we're conflicted. On the one hand, we've got a deviously funny segment from Monday night's "The Colbert Report" in which Stephen Colbert reveals that one of his staffers is behind the @RealHumanPraise Twitter account ("Legitimate reviews from 100% people, every two minutes"), a bot that auto-praises Fox News because, well, watch the clip to find out. On the other hand, we've got a video montage of little kids (mostly) freaking out because their parents just told them that they ate all their Halloween candy -- the third installment of an annual "Jimmy Kimmel Live" viral-video stunt (it also aired Monday) that somehow keeps being improbably funny (and occasionally weirdly touching).

We can't decide which clip we love more. So you decide!

Meanwhile, we're hoping that next year Jimmy Kimmel will convince Rupert Murdoch to tell Steve Doocy, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Brian Kilmeade of "Fox & Friends" that he's eaten all their Halloween candy. That would be a clear winner.
