CBS Chose Stephen Colbert and James Corden Because They “Complement Each Other”

In a phone interview with Deadline, CBS Entertainment chairman Nina Tassler said Corden was picked because, among other qualifications, he and David Letterman’s replacement Stephen Colbert “complement each other.” Where Colbert is known for his razor wit, Corden seduces with cuddliness, though he’s also very sharp. Corden has a gift for physical comedy, a star’s grace in a clown’s body, that gets audiences giddy.

Catch up edition! Or perhaps, all caught up edition? Wait, I got it. It’s the “All caught up until the ‘Emmys’ edition”-Edition. How’s that sound? Seriously, we will have one more edition, pre-Emmys, that focuses mostly on all the Emmy talk.

In this edition, Jon and Stephen are accused of having too many white male guests. Comments please, as in read the comments below the article and then come back here to comment as well. I think after reading it you will want to comment.

Hey, hubsters! These posts just keep on comin’. We are working to get out all these press pieces about Stephen in a timely fashion, but sometimes life happens and we get a little behind. Our apologies. Also, we have been tweaking the format a bit, as you may have noticed from the last ITP.

Please give feedback about it in the comments below- what’s better, what could change, etc. Much appreciated!

Anyway, the Emmys are here! Only a few more days. Can you believe it? It seems like it was just yesterday that we members of Colbert Nation were love drunk (and perhaps actually drunk) celebrating the big win for the show! So get ready and read on!

Among those watching at home in Los Angeles were Will & Grace co-creator Max Mutchnick and his husband, Erik Hyman, an entertainment lawyer at Loeb & Loeb. The couple had heard about Vicco — which in January 2013 passed a Fairness Ordinance prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation — even before Stephen Colbert’s show. But watching a segment about it on TV, they found themselves profoundly moved — so moved that they decided to build a children’s park for the recession-racked community.

“It’s inspiring to hear such a loud voice from such a small town,” Hyman tells THR. “Sometimes we think about towns between New York and California as small-minded, and it’s just not true.”
