Please Enjoy These Cat Acrobats Not Giving a Damn About Being on the Late Show 

On Monday night, Stephen Colbert’s Late Show featured some truly wondrous live entertainment: the Amazing Acro-cats. In keeping with their nature (i.e., being cats), they were quite desultory about their performance. At one point, the host himself felt obliged to pitch in. Just hand the entire late-night lineup over… »11/17/15 10:35am11/17/15 10:35am

Hillary Clinton on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert: Big Banks and Bad TV 

On Tuesday night, Hillary Clinton had a relatively light-hearted interview with Stephen Colbert.

Elizabeth Warren Tells Stephen Colbert She's 'Sure' She's Not Running for President 

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, one of the few people who might actually make a good president, is definitely not running for president, she told Stephen Colbert Wednesday night.

Stephen Colbert Gets Bernie Sanders All Riled Up on The Late Show

While tonight’s Late Show interview with Bernie Sanders was absent any of the respective tears or deep, deep discomfort that characterized Colbert’s two biggest moments so far (and at least compared to every other candidate interview we’ve seen), Sanders still manages to leave you with the impression that the man is… »9/19/15 11:15am9/19/15 11:15am

Stephen Colbert Debuts Late Show with George Clooney and Jeb Bush 

“You are all witnessing television history,” Stephen Colbert said as he opened the Late Show. The long-hyped television event was a bit underwhelming, but perhaps that was inevitable because expectations were so high.

Obama Takes Control of The Colbert Report, Delivers 'The Word'

With just two weeks left on the clock for the Colbert Report, the show is cramming in a few more splashy segments.

On Monday, before The Colbert Report goes ungently into that good night, Stephen Colbert will take a trip to Washington D.C., where he will be interviewing President Obama for the first time.
