Late night hosts were besides themselves on Monday night. Especially Stephen Colbert.

"I come to you tonight a broken man," Colbert said to his "Late Show" audience. "Because just this afternoon I was shocked by this breaking 'nooch.'" The breaking news, or as Colbert called it "nooch," was the ouster of Anthony Scaramucci as White House communications director -- a role he had for just 10 days.

"He said he was going to fire everybody and I got to admit he delivered," the CBS host said. For Colbert, the short length of Scaramucci's stint was hard to fathom.

"The Mooch lasted as communications director for only ten days! Ten! That's not even a whole pay period!" Colbert said. "His going away party can serve what's left of his welcome cake. They can change 'congratulations' to 'congratulater.'"
