The "Late Show" host hunted down two former "Daily Show" characters to help him deal with the fact that none other than Donald J. Trump is the GOP's pick for president.
The host of "The Late Show" hits the target—and certain members of Congress—where it counts in this timely gun control takedown.
He's filling the seat long commanded by David Letterman, which is a gigantic deal in and of itself, but whether Colbert's version of "The Late Show" gets off the ground ultimately has to do with whether he can fly solo—on his own terms.
Stephen Colbert left a big hole in late night political comedy, but Larry Wilmore, the former "senior black correspondent" of "The Daily Show," promises to fill that space with something "different."
"The Colbert Report" may be over for good, but there are still plenty of holiday clips to enjoy from earlier this year.
The French government has announced a plan to prevent housing displacement and the creation of "ghettos for the rich" in the capital; apparently, watching "The Colbert Report" made some people more conservative; meanwhile, the principles of the 1910 Mexican Revolution are being revived by the protest movement inspired by the Ayotzinapa students' disappearance. These discoveries and more after the jump.
After nine years, 1,447 episodes and several well-deserved Emmy Awards, America's favorite faux news pundit signed off one last time with a promise that "We'll Meet Again."
As the "Colbert Report" films its last few episodes, host Stephen Colbert comes to a startling realization: He's going to miss Fox News pundit Bill O'Reilly. Watch as the comedian pokes his final holes in O'Reilly's defense of unjustifiable, immoral acts such as CIA torture.
Fortunately, there are two TV pundits who are, at the very least, trying to help Americans process the ignominy of CIA torture without resorting to blatant denial.
As Jon Stewart mentioned on the "Daily Show" on Tuesday, the decision to time the president's appearance on the "Colbert Report" to air before the Senate's CIA torture report was released may not be purely coincidental.
