Another month down, one month to go! While the Late Show with Stephen Colbert staff is getting acquainted with the new Ed Sullivan offices, we look back at a time when they still had to suffer in the temporary offices. In this July edition of In The Press, learn why Stephen was ‘on the floor’ at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards; learn more about Jon Batiste, about Trevor Noah, about “secret” White House meetings; and much more!
October’s “In the Press” features Northwestern University’s pride for their late night alumni, media figures showing their love to Stephen, and hearty mentions of, as Stephen put it recently, “Jon Daily and The Zoo Crew” (aka Jon Stewart and The Daily Show.)
Be sure to stay tuned to our upcoming ITP posts as the show nears its conclusion, and the media weighs in. If a story grabs your attention, let us know your thoughts in the comments!

‘The Daily Show With Jon Stewart’ correspondent Wyatt Cenac has decided to leave the Comedy Central program, the cable network confirmed. Cenac, who has been on ‘The Daily Show’ since 2008, will stay on through the remainder of the year, which means three more weeks as the last Daily Show for 2012 tapes on Thursday, December 13.
“Jon and the staff wish him the best in his future endeavors,” a rep for Comedy Central said.
There are no immediate plans to hire a replacement for Cenac as ‘The Daily Show’ does not have a set number of correspondents.

Well folks, The Comedy Awards were taped last night and it was pretty much, unfortunately, a bust all around. Stephen didn’t attend, TCR didn’t win and we weren’t allowed into the press area. However, I refuse to let that get in the way of a nice weekend in NYC.
I did meet up with Karen and we watched as the attendees made their way into the press tent. The way they had it set up was kind of odd. The attendees had to walk across the entrance/exit of a parking garage to get to the press tent. Just at the height of the red carpet arrivals, the Rangers game let out and swarms of people were making their way to the garage to get their cars and were leaving and mucking up the works. As they waited for their cars they were entertained by the passing celebs and one group of hockey fans got their picture taken with a very gracious Matthew Perry.
It didn’t turn out as I expected, but at least now I know a little bit more about what to expect for next year, when Stephen WILL be there. (wags finger) I hope that the reason he didn’t attend was because he knew Jon and crew would win again, and not something more serious.
I did get this raw video of the Daily Show gang (sorry, no Jon) outside the tent and another still shot of the press tent with The Empire State Building in the background. At least I got something ;-D
