Better Know A Guest, November 3 – 6, 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! As the show approaches its final weeks, all eyes are the guests gracing the interview table. This election week features Chuck Todd, the new Meet The Press anchor (who is definitely not Jon Stewart) for a little pre-game analysis. Veteran TCR-guest Andrew Sullivan will be on hand for Tuesday’s exciting live midterm special. The week finishes up with NY Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and science author Steven Johnson. Jon will chat with actor Jake Gyllenhaal, RNC Chair Reince Preibus for his election night special, actor and Monty Python-er John Cleese, and investigative journalist James Risen.

Are you guys excited about the live midterm shows? Who are you looking forward to seeing? Let’s discuss in the comments.

Better Know a Guest: November 5 – 8, 2012 — UPDATE!

The Colbert Report Guest Line UpHello Hubsters!

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….
