Welcome to the last episodes of The Late Show for 2015! What a wild ride it has been. Thankfully, we here at the Hub have had our seat belts on (most of the time.) Stephen closes down the year with some big names: J-Law, Quentin Tarantino, and Robert DeNiro in the first guest spot Monday thru Wednesday. Things will likely get political on Thursday with friend-of-the-show Michael Moore. Friday’s episode featuring Mandy Patinkin should leave us all feeling warm and fuzzy before the holidays. There better be singing! (There will be singing.)

Shout out to our friends over at ROGUE NATION:
Hey there Hubsters! Hopefully all of you had great weekends (like a lot of readers I’m sure, it was my first weekend back at college). This weekend has certainly been eventful, and Jon and Stephen sure have a lot to choose from when deciding what to cover. I’m guessing that we’ll see some coverage of the events at the US Embassy in Tripoli, Libya, more news about ISIS and Iraq, even more drama between the EU and Russia, among other news stories that break throughout the week. As always, let us know what you hope to hear about in the comments below, as well as any other remarks you may have!
Stephen’s guests this week are an actor and two authors.
Jon’s guests this week are an author, a filmmaker, and a musician.
