Stephen Colbert took over as host, executive producer and writer of THE LATE SHOW on Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015. The comedy-variety-talk show is broadcast five nights a week from the Ed Sullivan theater in New York.
Satirical newscaster Stephen Colbert provides humorous commentary on the big issues going on in the United States and the rest of the world, with his larger-than-life ego and overly-patriotic spirit along with him every step of the way.
With his insightful wit and fearless candor, comedian John Oliver, formerly of the The Daily Show (1996), reviews the crazy current affairs happening in America and around the world. In doing so, he provides a wry perspective that punctures pomposity and cuts through all pretensions with comically outrageous audacity. In doing so, he can get to the heart of the matter of the world's most serious and absurd problems with plenty of laughs along the way. Written by

I was initially impressed with the show. I particularly enjoyed the way the show highlighted the use of "A new study shows" by the media. He did a great job of criticizing Trump and I wholeheartedly agreed with much of it. The investigation of Hillary's alleged crimes was completely disingenuous. I stopped watching. It's a shame, the show had potential. The few clips I've seen since have only reinforced my opinion. They are completely uncorked like the rest of the media over Trump becoming president. He does plenty wrong but you lose your credibility when you try to claim that everything he does is wrong.
