In honor of David Letterman leaving, but still keeping it all about Stephen, I have come up with a top ten list. This is the top ten guests that never appeared on The Colbert Report, that should now appear on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert in September. People that for whatever reason never appeared on the Report, but that I personally would love, love, love to see together with Stephen now that he is in the big leagues.
This is my list, but who would you Hubsters put on your lists? Discuss in the comments. I may just have to change my list if you guys come up with some good names.
This was my sixth time going to see the show and by far the most emotional and the most eagerly anticipated. I was so anxious about it that I actually have two reporTs to…um…reporT.
My BONUS Special Taping report: December 16, 2014.
When we got to the studio, they announced that they weren’t going to be able to use the studio due to some sort of emergency that they didn’t get into. They bussed us over to another place, a classroom at a college. They had to cancel the musical guest due to the change and they did a round table panel discussion instead and were going to have a bunch of pundit-types for guests. They only let ticket holders in; no guests of ticket holders and no standby.

As I sit here on my couch, drinking my coffee on this day, December 18th, the day of the very last Colbert Report episode, I know I will remember this day always. There is so much more going on in my head than I can fathom. I got home yesterday from a trip to New York where I went to see my final taping of the show from Tuesday, the 16th. (taping reporT to come soon) Now as I sit here trying to organize my thoughts on that and balance it with today’s momentous event, it almost seems too much to handle.
