Monday Recap - Patrick Stewart, Adam Duritz, Counting Crows

Late Night welcomed a very special set of guests on Monday, when none other than Sir Patrick Stewart stopped by and Adam Duritz and the Counting Crows performed not one but TWO hit songs.

Seth started off the episode with a recap of recent news, including Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's decision to pull back forces from Ukraine - the first time Putin has pulled back since being approached for a hug. Seth also poked fun at a new line of alcoholic lollipops and the latest words to be added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary. Find out which words made the cut, and check out the rest of the monologue here.

With graduations occurring across the country this past weekend, Fred revealed he too had taken part in one and received a master's degree in contact lens solution. The 8G band leader said it took six years for him to master the study of the solution, specifically its many ingredients. See him explain his choice of major here.

In addition to graduating, Fred joined Seth in returning to Saturday Night Live for its season finale this past weekend. The episode was hosted by Andy Samberg and featured cameos from a slew of other SNL alums. 

Monday marked an important episode for Seth, who was joined by his parents in the audience. At her son's behest, Mrs. Meyers showed off the results of her recent shoulder injury and how she's recovered mobility, though she chose a rather inappropriate gesture to do so.

Much like he did with slogans, Seth felt it was time to update the concept of a warning label. From cat food ("1 in every 4 feedings will result in puking") to grapefruit ("basically a big gross orange"), the Late Night host set out to clarify what consumers can expect when it comes to items like ice cream and latex gloves. Take a listen to his suggestions.

Making his second appearance on the show, Patrick Stewart stopped by sans good friend and X-Men: Days of Future Past costar Ian McKellan to chat with Seth about why he wasn't offered a job with the show (Patrick thinks it's because of the accent). The actor also revealed how he plans to watch this summer's World Cup ("with a beer full of fridge") and why something needs to be done about all of the strollers in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

Adam Duritz, the front man for the Counting Crows, made a rare talk show appearance to discuss the band's upcoming tour and his love of social media. Duritz said his obsession with Vine stems from being able to act like an idiot, and that in the early days, people often didn't believe it was really him they were interacting with on the Internet. See more of what the musician had to say here.

Alongside his bandmates David Bryson, Charlie Gillingham, Dan Vickrey, David Immerglück, Jim Bogios and Millard Powers, Adam Duritz and the Counting Crows performed hit song "Round Here" on Late Night. The band's new tour kicks off June 11 in Tampa, Florida and tickets can be purchased on the group's official website.
