Friend of the show, Neil deGrasse Tyson swings by The Report tonight, to talk about his new documentary series, “Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey.”
Hey there Hubsters! Anything happen over the weekend that you would like to hear Jon and Stephen talk about? I’m sure the Russian Army in Crimea will be an ongoing issue. Let us know what you think about topics and the guests in the comments below!
Stephen’s guests this week include an astrophysicist, a television show host, and two authors.
Jon’s guests this week include two authors, a Fox News analyst, and an actor.
Last night Stephen Colbert dropped by ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’ where he spoke about his disbelief at being seated next to First Lady Michelle Obama at the State Dinner, bluffing his way through a conversation in French with the President of France, François Hollande, and his love of the Rocky & Bullwinkle cartoons. Then Stephen joined Jimmy for an epic game of ‘Truth or Truth’ where talk turned to biggest regrets, tattoo’s, favourite 11:30Pm TV shows, Stephen’s underwear and his romance with horses.
Hello, Hubsters and welcome to this special In The Press post. In honor of the upcoming release of Mr. Peabody and Sherman, starring Stephen Colbert, we are going back in time! We are featuring all articles from the past, going all the way back to when Jon first started hosting the Daily Show. It was a simpler time. (Sorry, but I think it’s illegal or something, if I don’t say that.) Seriously though, since 1999, when Jon started hosting, it really was a different world. We could get through security at airports in a flash. It was a time without tweets and instagrams and iPhones. A MapQuest was more about trying to fold it up properly and Googling something meant you had to go to Wikipedia, wait, I mean an actual encyclopedia. How DID we manage?
So get in the WABAC machine and buckle up. (again, illegal if I don’t say that.)
Stephen Colbert discusses his new role as Paul Peterson in “Mr. Peabody and Sherman”, with Good Morning America’s Josh Elliott.

Comedy Central’s “Daily Show” has produced some of the most likable names in late night
Stephen Colbert is the only host in late night TV who plays a character. On “The Colbert Report,” he’s a self-absorbed, closed-minded caricature of a jingoistic talk show host, who is supposed to be anything but endearing.
But Americans embrace him anyway. Colbert is the most-liked late night talk show host, according to data that the Q Scores company provided to TheWrap. The leader of Colbert Nation and host of Comedy Central’s “Colbert Report” has the highest Positive Q Score in late night: a 20.
To create Q Scores, executive vice president Henry Schafer and his team provides a celebrity’s name and a brief description to more than 1,800 viewers. The viewers are asked if they recognize the person, and how they feel about him or her. The average Positive Q Score for a celebrity is 15.

On top of winning the People’s Choice Award for Best Late Night Host, this has to be welcome news (or, uh, data.) We all knew Stephen had a high I.Q., now “The Wrap” has demonstrated he has a high “Q,” too. Who knew? We did here at the Hub, for sure! You can see the overall late night host rankings at The Wrap.
