Tonight, author Phil Klay drops by the Report to discuss his new book, “Redeployment”.

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.

Tonight’s episode was the beginning of the final week of The Report. It was a phenomenal episode. It has been over two years since we’ve seen Formidable Opponent. We were lucky enough to see this outstanding segment one last time.

On a personal note, it is difficult to believe that this is the last Episode Guide of The Colbert Report that I will write for Colbert News Hub. It has been an honor to write these Guides and I truly hope that all of the fans out there have enjoyed reading them. I know I will miss writing them. So, I bid a fond farewell to my Episode Guides. It has been a privilege transcribing the brilliant words of Stephen and The Report writers. It was a pleasure taking screencaps and capturing the magnificent moments of joy that Stephen brings to all of us. For the final time, here is my Episode Guide. Enjoy, Hubsters!
