In this November edition, we explore the relevance of late night political comedy, late night friends, and of course, the election. Samantha Bee gets another season, Larry Wilmore will return to TV, Jon Stewart talks Trump’s win, and how does Jon Batiste spend his Sundays? Also, Laura Benanti is unhappy with the timing of her third Melania Trump impression. We’ll look at whether this election has helped Trevor Noah find his voice, and Stephen Colbert’s live election night show.
For the better part of this year, Tim Luecke and Rob Dubbin have been making animated magic happen in the Ed Sullivan Theater Graphics Lab.

In this months edition we take a look at why some critics believe the ‘Late Show’ isn’t connecting with audiences, how to the ‘Late Show’ is evolving and developing its social media strategies, and Laura Benanti talks that Melania Trump impersonation. Plus, Splitsider argues why Jimmy Fallon and James Corden are the true heirs to Johnny Carson.
