Better Know A Guest, December 8 – 11, 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! The news focus this week has been on the racial tensions in America and clashes between white police officers and black men.  As much as “Stephen” doesn’t see race, everybody else does. There are protests going on all around the country (and in New York City in particular), and I wouldn’t be surprised if they continue to be covered on the Report.  Meanwhile, Rolling Stone ran a story about gang rape at the University of Virginia, which turned out not to be true, and Sony was hit with a major cyber attack that may or may not have been the work of North Korea. In lighter news, NASA ran a successful test run of its spacecraft Orion, which was a major step in developing manned missions to Mars, and Beyonce beat Dolly Parton to become the most Grammy-nominated woman ever.

Stephen’s guests this week are the President of the United States, a comedian, and a podcast host. Jon’s are two authors, two filmmakers, and a national security adviser. As usual, let us know what you’re looking forward to in the comments!

Better Know a Guest: January 21-24, 2013

The Colbert Report Guest Line Up 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, Hubsters!

Happy Martin Luther King Day! Let’s celebrate a dream of peace and equality, when people will be judged not by the color of their skin but the content of their character.

Here’s hoping we have a show Monday and that it’s not cancelled because of a sick Stephen. (Obviously my concern is the host, not the show.)  If he’s well enough to tape, what might he cover? Of course, there’s his sister’s announced run for the House. He must give her the Colbert bump! As a Democrat in a Republican county, she’s going to need all the help she can get. Best of luck to Elizabeth Colbert-Busch, and here’s hoping she wins. South Carolina could only be the better for having a Colbert in the House.

And following The Colbert Report’s presentation of “Breaking Downton,” should come: “Breaking Vatican.” You see, a Monsignor from Connecticut has been caught selling meth and laundering money. And that’s not all. Cross-dressing! A sex shop! Read all about it! It’s definitely Colbert territory. I mean,  the Monsignor even likes show tunes.

Of course, we can’t forget the Inauguration, the deadly results on “gun appreciation day,” and well . . . lots more. It should be a good week—if our fearless and determined host can make it through.

Let’s welcome the guests now… Continue reading
