Tuesday night's vice presidential debate was an exciting topic on Twitter, late night TV, and basically nowhere else. In fact, according to an ABC News survey from earlier in the week, more than 40 percent of Americans couldn't even name the candidates.

So if you missed the debate, don't worry, these boiled down segments will mostly catch you up, minus the snoring (which came mostly from the audience, a little from moderator Elaine Quijano, and a bit from vice presidential candidates Tim "I'm With Her" Kaine and Mike "I Guess I'm With Trump?" Pence).

Several of the late night shows aired live after the debates instead of their usual pre-tape routines, the better to make "white bread" jokes about what they just watched.

1. The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

On The Late Show, Stephen Colbert summed up the debate thusly: "Both men tried their hardest but it was like watching a loaf of white bread get pistol-whipped by a jar of mayonnaise. Not a lot of flavor, but there was a clear winner."
