‘Colbert Report’ Finale Scores Series High in Viewers

19 December 2014 2:56 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Stephen Colbert officially got a proper send-off — at least per the Nielsen sheets.

The finale of “The Colbert Report” set a series record high with 2.5 million total viewers on Thursday. The goodbye show, which was heavily star-studded, appeared to have nearly as many people singing along on stage as it apparently did watching along at home.

The half-hour series closer topped Colbert’s previous high from Oct. 29, 2008, when he pulled in 2.4 million total viewers. That show was boosted by lead-in “The Daily Show,” which welcomed President Barack Obama as guest. »

Watch the Star-Studded Musical Finale for The Colbert Report

19 December 2014 8:51 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

After nine years on the air, The Colbert Report came to an end last night as host Stephen Colbert prepares to take over Late Night from David Letterman next May.  It was a fitting finale in that Colbert provided a funny and outlandish sendoff for his Colbert Report alter ego, complete with a musical finale featuring the most random assembly of celebrities ever.  Seriously, name three random people and they were probably on The Colbert Report last night singing “We’ll Meet Again.”  George Lucas?  Check.  Kareem Abdul-Jabbar?  Check.  Tom Brokaw?  Yep.  Even Big Bird showed up.  Comedy Central has now made the musical Colbert Report finale available online, so if you missed it or just want to watch again (which is totally acceptable), you can now do so. Watch the Colbert Report finale video after the jump, which also features James Franco, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Ariana Huffington, J.J. Abrams, »

James Franco, Bryan Cranston Help Us Bid Adieu To Stephen Colbert and ‘The Colbert Report’

18 December 2014 9:30 PM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

-Courtney Enlow

“Folks, if this is your first time tuning into The Colbert Report, I have some terrible news for you.” With a mighty leap over the word “grippest,” Stephen Colbert began his final episode of The Colbert Report.

For the first half, it was actually a very normal episode, with talk of Syria, a shout-out to the Prescott Group, and a special “The Word” devoted to Colbert’s impact on television. Oh, and he also killed Death. Shooting Grimmy the Grim Reaper, he was rendered immortal. Your standard stuff. I’m pretty sure that’s how Jack Parr went off the air.

But it wasn’t all the fantastically self-important bombast we’ve loved since 2005. For starters, the auction Colbert held for his desk and fireplace earned over $313,000 for the Yellow Ribbon Fund. And, he thanked his audience, his “Nation,” for everything he’s done over the past nine years. »

10 guests who went toe-to-toe with Stephen on 'Colbert Report'

18 December 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Stephen Colbert hasn't been just formidable as an interviewer on Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report," he has been altogether intimidating as a host. His conservative pundit persona allowed for his line of questioning to guests in a skit or an interview to be more extreme and pressing, and for his follow-ups to either make fun of the subject or make fun of himself. It's a style and experience that will obviously serve Colbert well at his next gig -- behind the desk at "The Late Show..." -- but the length of "Colbert" plus the host's ability to transition between parody comedy to a sincere interrogation always kept the show's guests on their toes, even when their bits were scripted. The "Report" frequently featured its host singing and dancing, and on a metaphorical level, all the guest could (or had to) do was keep up. With "The Colbert Report" coming to a close tonight (Dec. »
