Stephen Colbert stopped by the ‘Late Late Show with James Corden’ on Thursday, 14 September, 2017 for spot of ‘Side Effects May Include …’ in which Stephen and James share some of the ultra-specific side effects that result from being a late night host, awards show host, and celebrity interviewer.
Side effects may include, “Having to tell people if they missed your show they can watch it in full on CBS All Access, as if that’s a viable option,” “having to continue hosting the show after losing the category you were nominated for,” and “really hoping that no one tallies up the lengths of every movie and tv show you’ve told guests that you love, because it would add up to more hours than you’ve been alive.”
Stephen Colbert stopped by ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ on Thursday, 14 September, 2017, where the two hosts talked all things late night and Emmys.
