In The News: A great deal happened in the past two weeks. All eyes watched as the best athletes in the world competed in the Summer Olympic Games in Rio. The United States took home the most medals – a total of 121. Congratulations to all of the winners from every country.
Donald Trump had a shake up in his campaign when his manager, Paul Manafort, resigned. Trump has now appointed two new leaders who are destined to make America great again: Stephen Bannon, who runs the conservative outlet Breitbart News and Kellyanne Conway, a Republican strategist and pollster. What a pair!
The late night landscape underwent a change as “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore” was cancelled after 20 months of being on the air. Wilmore gave a much needed voice to minorities who are underrepresented. His brand of political satire will be greatly missed. Jon Stewart appeared on Wilmore’s final show and highly praised his work. Stephen and “The Late Show” team sent Wilmore a perfect parting gift.
Unexpected ‘Late Show’ news has emerged from Showtime’s Television Critics Association summer press tour, with David Nevins revealing that Stephen Colbert is in talks to host a live election night special on Showtime.
“People don’t just want to watch CNN and Fox News. We want them to watch Showtime on election night,” Nevins said during his executive session, pointing out how fun it would be for viewers to watch Colbert announce which candidate won each state, instead of traditional news anchors.
While Nevins classed the news as a “half-announcement” because the deal has not been finalized yet, he noted, “I think it’s gonna happen — Stephen wants to do it, I want to do it, the studio wants to do it.” Colbert has the night off from his full-time role as host of CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on the night of the election — Tuesday, November 8 — Nevins said, which should make the special easier to wrangle with Showtime’s corporate sibling CBS.
“It’ll be Colbert unfettered, he’s promised he’ll say at least a couple curse words,” Nevins joked. “It’s something I’ve been trying to get him to do — he’s not on CBS that night anyway, so I think it’ll be really fun … He’s had a good time being more political.” – Variety.
‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ will broadcast three live shows following the upcoming presidential and vice presidential debates. ‘The Late Show’ will air live Monday, September 26 (11:35 PM, live ET/delayed PT) following the first presidential debate, Tuesday, October 4 (11:35 PM, live ET/delayed PT) following the vice presidential debate, and Wednesday, October 19 (11:35 PM, live ET/delayed PT) after coverage of the third presidential debate. Colbert will host each night live from the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York. The guest lineup and additional information will be made available as details are confirmed.
