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!

Better Know A Guest – December 15 – 18, 2014

Better Know a Guest Welcome to Better Know a Guest, your weekly guide to the wonderful and diverse array of personalities appearing on ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Daily Show’ each week.

Hello, Colbert News Hub!  So this is it.  I’m sure plenty of the show this week will be dedicated to celebrating the last nine years, and probably some massive foreshadowing by Grimmy, Thursday’s special guest.  But the guest list suggests that it’ll be somewhat business as usual, and in that vein we can expect to see some stories about the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests, the CIA torture report, sliding oil prices, and Jeb Bush’s 2016 presidential campaign ramping up.  And if they’re looking for something fun, there is now a scientific study that definitively explains why waiting room magazines are so crappy (people steal only the good ones!)

The end is bittersweet.  This last week will be exciting, especially as we find out how Grimmy brings “Stephen” to his fate.  But it’s also sad, because without the Report guests who’s going to teach us how cool the Stanford Marshmallow Test is, or make us think about how much Canada weighs?  I’ve learned so much from these interviews over the years, and I hope that Late Show can remain a platform for authors and professors and artists as much as actors and musicians and politicians.  But meanwhile, here’s to an excellent last week!

Stephen’s guests this week are an actor, a musician, a writer, and the Grim Reaper.  Jon’s are a director, a musician, an actress, and a comedian.  Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments!
