    The Late Show & Last Week Tonight

    So I thought in order to contain the excitement for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert next week on Sept. 8th, at 11:35/10:35c on CBS, we would start a new conjoined thread with Last Week Tonight (of which we have no thread to post about, except in the poopdeck) to honor the memory of The Daily Show & Colbert Report.




    I've never watched any of these late show's save for occasionally accidentally passing by Conan's show, or the occasional clips on youtube. This most recent clip really makes it feel like he's bringing a lot more of his Colbert Report persona into this show, which I can dig.




    Meanwhile, we have John Oliver over on HBO every Sunday at 11:00, creating churches, getting FIFA officials arrested, a drinking Bud Light Lime while wearing golden Adidas sneakers eating McDonalds.

    I'd say this is a fine compromise for saying goodbye to Stewart.

    Colbert has been doing a rather good behind-the-scenes podcast on them getting ready to launch the show.

    Stephen's new show will be interesting. Mainly because he's going to be himself and not a caricature. I'm sure he's going to crush it though, the man is too talented not to.

    And yeah, if you aren't watching Last Week Tonight, you should start. Like, right now. Show is fantastic and John Oliver just crushes it every week. The main, beefy segments are all on youtube to watch for free, so there's really nothing stopping anyone who hasn't seen it yet

    Hype is real, here we go. It's been too long without Colbert on tv.

    This part feels like Colbert Report and it's great.

    Seems pretty much like the colbert report.

    Edit: Yeah it's the Colbert Report with a new skin. I feel less sad now.

    Really like the show, as BT said, its pretty much the Colbert Report but an hour long. Just wonder if Colberts' celebrity status is going to put off some guests on appearing on the show for awhile.

    I enjoyed the Jimmy Fallon cameo. I thought the house band and theme song was pretty shitty though.

    Yeah that was a surprise. Did a double take when I saw that.

    I didn't want to be the first to say it but yeah, I thought they were disappointing.

    So true, but I think Reggie Watts on the James Corden Late Late Show is a very close second.
