On behalf of the Hub, wishing you a very Happy Birthday Mrs. Colbert. I hope that Stephen sent you an awesome present, and that you have a wonderful day!!
UPDATE, WED NOVEMBER 7TH: NEW GUEST FOR THURSDAY NIGHT: RACHEL MADDOW WILL REPLACE KEVIN SHEPPARD
I hope all those Hubsters who were in the path of “perfect storm” Sharon are well, along with their families, and with power restored. My own went out on Monday night and only returned about 9PM on Friday. Heat and hot water, unfortunately, did not come along with the electricity, and probably will not be restored for a week or two. For the past few days, I have simply devoted my time to trips uptown to charge up the phone and get extra supplies. That also meant climbing up the twelve flights of stairs in my building. However, I am not complaining. I am capable of doing that, my apartment and loved ones are safe, and my cats have remained comfortably at home the whole time. People have suffered here, and some have died. In Breezy Point, Brooklyn, 110 homes burned. Flooding occurred everywhere, leaving people in Newark and Hoboken stranded. Staten Island remains in terrible shape. I count my blessings that all my inconveniences are temporary.
For various reasons this week’s BKAG will be short and with “reruns.” Obviously, I’m still trying to get things in order. But also, Stephen has one guest who has been on The Daily Show very recently (and is returning to TDS again this week, too!) and another who was on just a few months ago. They’re not pitching new books or films; they’re coming on to discuss the election. So in those cases I will reprise or extend my earlier post with a few variations where they are warranted, perhaps a few fresher articles and so forth. But web addresses, Facebook pages, and Twitter accounts won’t have changed in the meantime.
I still have two Reports and Daily Shows to catch up on this week! I can’t wait to see the David Byrne….
EPISODE NUMBER:8141 Episode MMXII – America Strikes Back GUESTS:Andrew Sullivan SEGMENTS: Hurricane Isaac at GOP Convention | Colbert Super PAC – Hurricane Isaac & Stephen’s Money Convention | Todd Akin’s Abortion Gaffe | Sign-Off Goodnight SUIT REPORT: Dark suit | White shirt | Red/white/blue stripped tie VIDEOS:Tuesday, August 28, 2012
Welcome back, everyone. I feel a little unsure of what this week will bring. The banner on Colbert Nation says there will be new episodes from Tuesday through Friday, but the guest list has no TBD for Friday, nor does the Late Night TV Page (although it does have one for Jon’s Friday show). So who knows what’s going on? I’ll assume that the banner is right, and as soon as there’s any news, I’ll update this BKAG.
What I do know is that I can’t wait for Stephen’s reappearance. He has a banquet of tasty topics to choose from, thanks to the Republicans. You have Akins’s “legitimate rape” comment; Isaac at the RNC (caused by God? Or just the bad judgment to hold the convention in Florida during hurricane season?); the Mittster’s little “joke” about no one asking to see his birth certificate because everyone knows where he was born (but what about the tax returns, Mitt, what about the tax returns?); and, oh well, so much more. That doesn’t even take into account the latest late-night news: Jimmy Kimmel’s just-announced move to 11:30, opposite Stephen. All the papers keep mentioning Leno and Letterman, but really? There is only one 11:30 guy in my book. Anyway, there simply is no lack of material. The only tough thing will be deciding what to leave out. But, basically, it will be a hard turn from the music of Colbchella to the politics of the presidential nominating process.
So let’s see what lucky people will appear with Stephen this week.
