Late Show with Stephen Colbert Summary:
After 22 years of hosting The Late Show, David Letterman has handed over not only the reins to his late night talk show, but also the front door keys to the historic Ed Sullivan Theatre to Stephen Colbert, formerly of The Colbert Report on Comedy Central. Letterman had hosted The Late Show since 1993 following the late night wars with Jay Leno, where he nabbed NBC's The Tonight Show from Letterman, against Johnny Carson's wishes, who had promoted Letterman as the perfect shoe-in for his show. Letterman, not satisfied with getting a second place show directly after Jay, famously headed over to CBS to get his own show to go up directly against Jay in the late night war ratings of 1993. Colbert, no stranger to late night television, has earned 6 Emmy's for his witty, no holds barred, no apologies given format on The Colbert Report. That show had its beginnings as a news segment on Comedy Central's, The Daily Show with John Stewart and managed to garner enough audience to stand on its own two feet as a separate TV show. The Colbert Report report aired on Comedy Central for 11 seasons and owes a great deal to Jon Stewart, who was it's material and financial benefactor.

Colbert is an accomplished comedian, author and political satirist, and even had a run for president ( through his late night show). Although his old show had a political theme (he played an ultra conservative republican) he conducted many hilarious interviews with not only famous politicians of our time Obama, Clinton(s), etc but also met with pop figures like James Franco and the Muppets.

The new show, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, focuses less on the politics and more on the Hollywood celebrities. Having interviewed everyone from Neil Young to Neil Degrasse-Tyson, Colbert knows what questions to ask and when to ask them - stepping up to a new quality of interviewer in late night television, not-at-all at odds with any existing late night TV shows that have primarily headed towards a more fun. light hearted, SNL style of late night entertainment. The Late Show's bandleader is jazz musician, Jon Batiste.

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
on CBS is pitted up against NBC's Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon which are both in the same time slot of 11:35PM EST.

Should You See The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in New York City?

Stephen Colbert Headshot  
Fans of the old Late Show with David Letterman will still get to experience the show in the historic Ed Sullivan theatre on Broadway. The new show, with Stephen Colbert, has the requisite opening monologue and the rundown of the days events. This continues into funny interviews with popular celebrities of the day and the occasional band or musical guest.

Where Letterman had his top ten lists, Colbert has his own spin, after all he was credited with creating the brand new word, Truthiness, that has since been added to the American Lexicon. Colbert's last show was Dec. 2014, so there was lots of time to create a new Late Show format and stage that is uniquely his - but the theatre is still awfully cold - due to CBS's refusal to upgrade to LED lighting. He will have to be on his toes though as he will be competing with The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, which has started out very strong, on a competing network and has a much warmer theater. Colbert has loaded his new show with a great sidekick and a new warn up comedian that makes the overall experience very special.
The new show is a mind-meld of Colbert's old Colbert Report and Letterman's Late Show.

The Late Show with David Letterman and Barack Obama   Previous Host: David Letterman

David Letterman was the host of The Late Show since 1993, making him the “longest running late-night talk show host” in America. David Letterman’s last show was in May of 2015, and Stephen Colbert took the reins around September 2015. As the new host, Colbert inherited the brand name, facing the challenge of putting his own mark on the show in a way that will not lose current viewers. He aims to rid the show of the haunt of the Letterman sex scandal and subsequent extortion plot that was revealed in 2009.
