Who doesn't like a good catfight? The drink-throwing, the shoving and rancor that culminated The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 6 finale drew a series-high 2.88 million viewers, a 17 percent increase over the previous season's conclusion, according to Nielsen Media Research.

"I don't know what to do anymore! It's killing me," Stewart said on Monday's Daily Show, hours after Weiner admitted to sending lewd photos of himself to women on Twitter.
