Last night, late-night hosts including Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert finally addressed film producer and studio owner Harvey Weinstein, whose multiple sexual assault allegations resulted in him being forced out from his own company over the weekend.

"Harvey Weinstein was fired by his company yesterday for being accused of sexual harassment. Not good. They said if he keeps it up he'll wind up with his own show on Fox News," Jimmy Fallon said.

Why it matters: The mockery came after several media stories were published over the weekend criticizing the late-night shows for not treating Weinstein with the same disdain as Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly when they were in similar situations.
