Talkshows (well, the liberal ones at any rate) in the US tend always to respond to tragedies in the most heartwarming way. Unfortunately, as mass shootings and terrorist acts are becoming increasingly regular and more deadly, the TV responses keep flooding in.

Jimmy Kimmel's on-air response to the most recent and deadly terror attack in his hometown of Las Vegas was tearful and powerful.

He urged his viewers to critique at the senators who continue to block common-sense gun regulation and blasted those who are beholden to the National Rifle Association.

He told his audience, 'Common sense says no good will ever come from allowing a person to have weapons which can take down 527 Americans at a concert.'

Ellen DeGeneres filmed her Tuesday night version of The Ellen Show on Monday, the day after the deadly attack, and, went about her tribute in a distinctly Ellen way.

The talkshow host spoke to camera saying, 'I am very happy you are here today. I am hoping we can fill this room with love and prayers and hope. That's what I want right now.'

She continued:

My heart is broken for everyone effected, by what happened there… I don't know about you, but I feel sad, I feel anxious, I feel helpless, and it's very easy to lose hope, but we cannot do that, we cannot do that. I always say that there is a lot more good in the world than bad, and I continue to believe that.

She went on to say that, despite the darkness, there are tremendous acts of good happening all the time, including the numerous reports that people in Las Vegas have been donating blood as early at four-thirty AM on Monday morning.

Then Ellen introduced a short video of some of the tremendous, giving people, who she has featured on her show.

Watch the compilation and try not to cry:

After the inspirational video, she concluded, 'Love will always win'.

We couldn't agree more.
