Ok. Let’s re-emphasize the sort-of part.
Popular sites such as Reddit and Huffington Post were buzzing earlier this week with news regarding what appeared to be a special form of marketing regalia for the upcoming debut of the long-and-anxiously-awaited Late Show. Col-bears!
The adorable gummies were reportedly delivered to CBS offices by Stephen Colbert himself, after conducting interviews in their offices with a variety of TV news-anchors earlier this week.
After the unveiling of its new marquee, and the announcement of the shows first guest this week, CBS have aired two new ‘Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ promos on television, and aired a third “CGI 3D” trailer in cinemas.
Starting today, movie goers can see the new ‘Late Show’ trailer in AMC, Regal and Cinemark theatres and approx. 35 other smaller theatre chains.
Regular viewers of ‘The Colbert Report’ will recall that Stephen Colbert has long “fantasized about getting invited to George Clooney’s palazzo in Italy. Getting drunk, and going skinny dipping in Lake Como.”
It may not be an Italian palazzo, but “America’s ultimate slab of man meat” will be dropping by the Ed Sullivan Theater on September 8th, 2015, after Stephen Colbert tweeted the announcement that Clooney will be ‘The Late Shows’ first guest.

In the current issue of Entertainment Weekly (Issue #1375), Stephen Colbert talks to Ray Rahman about the first time he met Jon Stewart, what it was like working with Jon at ‘The Daily Show’, making each other laugh, and what Jon is really like away from the cameras.
Jon Stewart will host his final episode of ‘The Daily Show’ tonight 11/10c on Comedy Central.
Late last night, the new ‘Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ marquee arrived via truck at its new home outside the Ed Sullivan Theater.
Twitter user @BrianLinek and Instagram user @GreatMomentsWithMrLee were lucky enough to capture the sections of the marquee being hoisted into their new home. Come morning, lucky New Yorkers passing by Broadway were treated to the site of the newly installed marquee.
As seen on our Pinterest board, workers continue to put the finishes touches on the marquee, which is currently missing Stephen Colbert’s name, ahead of the shows September 8th, 2015 premiere. But where could Colbert’s name go? Is this perhaps just a temporary place filler for something fancier to be unveiled closer to September?
Tickets to the test shows of ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ on August 27th, 28th, 31st and September 1st, 2nd and 3rd are now available via ShowClix.
To attend a taping of the show you must be at least 18 years old and have a government issued photo ID. As noted on the ticket page “All shows are overbooked to ensure capacity, and no one is guaranteed entry.” And as with ‘The Colbert Report’ you may only attend a taping once every six months.
Those attending a taping must be in line no later than 3PM, and guests may join you in line up until 3:15PM. No one will be allowed to join the line after 3:15PM.
** Note: As with ‘The Colbert Report’, I will add a comprehensive ticket guide to the Hub shortly. Stay tuned!
