Last night, the present and future met when Stephen Colbert stopped by ‘The Late Show’ for his first appearance since it was announced that he would take over hosting duties from David Letterman some time in 2015. “You look right at home,” David Letterman joked before Stephen revealed that he almost twice worked for Letterman in the past, after being offered an internship in 1986, and in 1997 after he and writing partner Paul Dinello got a call back, but decline as work had already started on ‘Strangers with Candy’. After taking a quick selfie with Dave, Stephen read the Top 10 he submitted back in 1997, entitled ‘The Top 10 Cocktails for Santa’. The two also discussed pets, families, vacations and building a boat with a broken wrist.

Hey there Hubsters! After a nice break week, it’s another week of fake news (and it seems The Colbert Report’s weeks are numbered). Any news from the break that you hope they cover? As always let us know what you hope they cover and what guests you’re looking forward to in the comments below!
Stephen’s guests this week are two education policy specialists, two authors, and a basketball coach.
Jon’s guests this week are an Environmental Protection Agency administrator, a senator, a morning show anchor, and an author.
I have been busier than a (insert folksy analogy here, but keep it clean!) It’s been tricky keeping track of all the press on Stephen and the show, lately, but it’s been fun too. It’s exciting to think that our guy is getting so much attention.
So here is more from the world of “Late Show” press and late night TV in general and a piece from the still gurgling pool of #CancelColbert. Yup, just when you thought it was safe….
Tired of Fox News? So is ‘The Colbert Report’, who was on campus filming students. We caught up with a CC senior who had just been interviewed for the segment to mock Fox News making Columbia students look stupid.
“So The Colbert Report is coming on with unreasonable demands—he holds up a picture of somebody and swooshes it by really fast and asks them to name which political official it was. The humor is that Columbia students are really smart and answer correctly, and he’s trying to make a funny shot and gets pissed off. So I was just interviewed to answer what are the three branches of government. I actually got 2 of them right the first time, and then they did the shot again where I got all three of them right—he said ‘Son of a bitch!’ and stormed off.”
