“We’ve got 42 shows left. Something like that. That’s it,” Stephen Colbert said.

“That’s terrible,” Eric Schmidt replied.

“That’s lovely,” Colbert corrected. “Forty-two shows and then we’ll do something else. I’m not dying.”

The proceedings Tuesday night at the 92nd Street Y were supposedly about Google executive chairman Schmidt and Google executive Jonathan Rosenberg—coauthors of How Google Works, a book-length treatise on the secrets of innovation and success at the technology behemoth, which they’ve been promoting on every conceivable media platform over the past few days.

Why Stephen Colbert Doesn’t Need to Apologize

Stephen Colbert Who's Attacking Me NowWhen Stephen made a reference to the fact that he only has one female writer, as he accepted his Emmy in August, for “Outstanding Variety Show”, he then apologized, “for some reason”. What I thought he was trying to say when he said that was actually more the opposite. I don’t think he should have to apologize at all. He has done nothing wrong. However, many people in the media seem to disagree judging by the number of recent articles commenting on that one line in his Emmy acceptance speech. So we here at the Hub have delved into this issue, analyzed it and here are the results. The opinions expressed in this piece are mine and not necessarily representative of Colbert News Hub as a whole.

The Colbert Report taping report Hello, everyone! It’s me, Stephensmile64, back again with another taping reporT. So yeah, I know what you’re all thinking? “Stephensmile64, didn’t you just attend a taping?” Why yes, I did. So unfortunately, I did not attend this show but a friend of a friend of mine did.

For him, these questions and answers were totally new, so he was really excited about hearing them. He also stated that Stephen was very open and sincere. So, without further ado …

A Look Back — Stephen on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

Stephen Colbert A Look Back Welcome to “A Look Back,” where we review and celebrate select clips from the overwhelmingly voluminous video catalog and the many splendid works of Stephen T. Colbert over the years.


Way back in April 2004 then Daily Show correspondent Stephen Colbert made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to discuss his brushes (or lack thereof) with Candidate Greatness on the ’04 presidential campaign trail. We all remember his *one* question with Howard Dean, right? He also talks about his wife’s discomfort with a NSFW comedic piece he did on Kimmel’s Comedy Central show Crank Yankers. Stephen ends the interview with an edited piece about editing a piece, channeling tyrannical bits of what soon would become his character just a year and a half later. Check it out:

Particularly poignant is when Stephen first gets onstage, he looks around and says, “This feels good. I’ve got to get me a gig like this.” I think you just did, sir.
