Featured

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Live Super Bowl Episode 1, 28, 87, hut, hut, hike it on over to CBS on Sunday for the ‘Live Late Show Super Bowl Special’!

Hello Hubsters! The special ‘Live Super Bowl Episode’ is rapidly approaching! We here at the Hub wanted to commemorate this special event, so we have decided to do a Late Show Pool. Everyone knows that when it comes to the Super Bowl there is always a pool, whether it’s at work, or among friends, one and all can join in the pool to place their bets and predict what will happen in the Super Bowl.

We at the Hub decided to run a pool about the special Live Late Show. This is how it will work: the Hub staff has come up with many predictions for the show. For example, will Stephen wear a gold suit? Will Tina Fey and Stephen talk about “The Second City”? We have created a Hub pool, anyone who wants to join, can simply post their name, email, and up to ten prediction(s) in the comment section.

Oh, and did I mention there is a prize involved?, Yes! whoever gets the most predictions correct will win a ‘Late Show’ mug, courtesy of the Hub. The sign up sheet will be available soon, and will close at 10pm EST the day of the Super Bowl. So place your bets, and get ready to watch the show live on CBS directly after the Super Bowl this Sunday!

** Please note: You must be 18 years old or over to enter.
