Stephen Colbert Welcomes Comedy Central ‘Broad City’ Talent To ‘Late Show’

14 hours ago | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, who famously successfully “begged and stalked” Hillary Clinton into guesting on their Comedy Central show, appeared on The Late Show’s live DNC edition, right after Clinton, in Philadelphia, became the first female presidential candidate in a major U.S. political party. Yes, the same Comedy Central whose lawyers, or it may have been the lawyers of parent company Viacom, informed CBS lawyers they owned The Colbert Report’s Stephe… »

‘The Late Show’ Producer on Stephen Colbert’s Post-Convention Momentum

18 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” executive producer Chris Licht admits he’s “about to collapse” – but that’s a good thing.

Licht says he’s “energized and exhausted at the same time” as “The Late Show” concludes two weeks of live broadcasts timed to the Republican and Democratic conventions. By all accounts, it’s been a success: Critics, some of whom had expressed disappointment with Colbert’s transition from Comedy Central to CBS, are raving about the shows.

And inside “The Late Show,” Licht says, “there’s a nice energy amongst Stephen and the staff. Especially Stephen, who doesn’t read press, he’s getting pure enjoyment out of the shows we’re doing.”

The live telecasts gave Colbert the opportunity to comment, in real time, on each evening’s main speeches and news, giving the show real freshness each night. Colbert also made headlines by dusting off his »

‘Star Trek’ Sales Buoy 27% Profit Hike For CBS Q2

23 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

International sales of various incarnations of the famous “Star Trek” series helped boost second-quarter performance at CBS Corp., a sign of the company’s growing reliance on monetization of its content to fuel its engines.

CBS Corp., owner of the CBS broadcast network and the Showtime cable service, said net income totaled  $423 million, or 93 cents a share, up from $332 million, or 67 cents a share, a year earlier. The year-earlier quarter included restructuring charges of 7 cents a share,  related largely to CBS-owned radio and television station. The figures show a 27% increase in profit for the period.

Revenue in the second quarter rose 2%,  the company said, to $3.29 billion from $3.22 billion in the year-earlier period.

CBS said its gains were driven by a 16% increase in the money it gets from content licensing and distribution, and largely by the licensing of the five “Star Trek” series to Netflix, to which CBS controls the rights, outside »

Stephen Colbert Forced to Retire 'Stephen Colbert,' Introduces 'Stephen Colbert'

28 July 2016 12:20 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Stephen Colbert was forced to retire his beloved "Stephen Colbert" character on The Late Show Wednesday, just one week after reviving the Colbert Report host. But Colbert quickly soothed audience boos by introducing the identical twin cousin of "Stephen Colbert," "Stephen Colbert."

As Colbert — host of The Late Show — explained, immediately after the episode aired, corporate lawyers (presumably from Comedy Central, or its parent company Viacom) contacted CBS to say that the "Colbert" character was their intellectual property. "What can I do?" Colbert joked. "I cannot reasonably argue I own my face or name. »

Stephen Colbert Introduces Identical Cousin of ‘Colbert Report’ Persona To Dodge Viacom Lawyers — Watch

28 July 2016 9:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Last week Stephen Colbert brought back an old friend to “The Late Show,” and no it wasn’t Jon Stewart, it was his “Colbert Report” alter ego Stephen Colbert. Though, on Wednesday night he told viewers that while many enjoyed the return of his “Report” character he stated, “You know who didn’t enjoy it so much? Corporate lawyers.” 

“Because, and this is true, immediately after that show, CBS’s top lawyer was contacted by the top lawyer from another company to say that the character ‘Stephen Colbert’ is their intellectual property, which is surprising, because I never considered that guy much of an intellectual,” he added. Those corporate lawyers would be from Viacom, Comedy Central’s parent company.

Colbert, John Oliver Spoof Elizabeth Banks' 'Fight Song' for Hillary Clinton

28 July 2016 7:46 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Stephen Colbert and John Oliver inserted themselves into Elizabeth Banks' all-star rendition of Rachel Platten's "Fight Song" for Hillary Clinton on The Late Show Wednesday.

Colbert squeezed in among the Brady Bunch-style boxes with stars like Sia, Connie Britton and Alan Cumming and sang the Chili's baby back ribs jingle. The Late Show host also performed some impressive ventriloquism and gave a random didgeridoo solo for good measure.

Oliver, meanwhile, injected "Our Fight Song" with his classic British cantankerousness, demanding to know how he'd been duped into appearing in the video. »

28 July 2016 7:14 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

John Oliver detailed his new obsession with Hillary Clinton's running mate and America's "cool stepdad," Tim Kaine on The Late Show Wednesday.

The Last Week Tonight host joined Stephen Colbert to discuss night three of the Democratic National convention, which featured moving speeches from Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama. But Oliver was stuck on Kaine, shouting out all the "Kaine-iacs" in the crowd and lauding the VP pick's dad jokes, terrible Donald Trump impression and face flexing.

"He is a tall glass of Lactaid," Oliver said. »

Stephen Colbert Interviews Cartoon Hillary Clinton on The Late Show

Stephen Colbert has been hosting The Late Show live from the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia since the event kicked off this Monday, and during the late night show last night, he took some time to speak to a very special guest: Cartoon Hillary Clinton. Yes, last night Senator Cartoon Clinton made her first appearance on The Late Show to celebrate her officially becoming the Democratic Party’s nominee for president, and Colbert made it a point to find out just who the real Hillary Clinton was during their time together. The answer? Well, I don’t think we really got one, but it sure

Seth Meyers To Bernie Or Busters: Quit Yer Belly-achin’ & Help Dems Beat Trump

26 July 2016 9:34 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Seth Meyers has a message for those hardcore Bernie Sanders supporters who disrupted Day 1 of the Democratic National Convention: “Donald Trump is ahead in the polls. The house is on fire. Stop crying because we’re not putting out the fire with your hose.” The Late Show host debuted a new segment simply called “Hey!” by going a little rogue calling out the Bernie or Busters, chiding: “We are on the cusp of electing a racist demagogue, and that never ends well.

Stephen Colbert Guest Anthony Weiner Demonstrates Why Politicians In Sexting Scandals Should Not Try Comedy

26 July 2016 8:44 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Former New York congressman Anthony Weiner was among the guests for the first night of The Late Show’s live DNC coverage at which Hillary Clinton is expected to be anointed Dem nominee for Potus. This made some sense because Weiner is married to Clinton’s longtime aide Huma Abedin. Joining Colbert onstage, Weiner looked up at the cheap seats in the Ed Sullivan Theater and asked, “Where’s the forced-out-of-office-by-scandal [delegation]?” telling Colbert, “I thought I’d… »

On Monday's episode of The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert shared yet another pretaped segment of his 2016 Hungry for Power Games skit - but this time it was at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

Watch Colbert Exasperate Security, Staff in 'Hunger Games' DNC Skit

26 July 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Stephen Colbert doffed his blue wig, leashed up his pet weasel Caligula and literally stormed the stage at the Democratic National Convention on The Late Show Monday.

On his "Hungry for Power Games: DNC Edition," Colbert sauntered around the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia being a general nuisance. "Here at the DNC all lifestyles are welcome, be you gay, straight or pain in the ass," Colbert cracked, pointing to a "gluten-free zone" sign. Later he stood on a delegate's chair and tried to start a "Lock her up" chant.

Hungry For Power Games‘s Julius Flickerman and his pet weasel Caligula returned to Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show, for Hungry for Power Games: DNC Edition.

John Ostrander: Our Lonely Nation Turns Its Eyes To You

24 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The Republican National Convention Circus came to town last week and they made the big clown their ringmaster.

As you might guess, I am not a supporter of Donald Trump. Evidently neither is Senator Ted Cruz, who declined to get behind the party’s nominee during a nationally televised prime time speech at the Republican National Convention. That was interesting.

ComicMix is about pop culture and you certainly can examine the Rnc from that perspective. It was entertaining, in a sick way, and had more than a few surprises. It was like a Big League version of a reality show… and Trump knows about reality shows, believe me.

However, I think that the best thing coming out of the Rnc was the return of Jon Stewart. He appeared at least twice on his old buddy Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show (I’m writing this before Friday night’s show »

Critic's Notebook: Late Night Winners and Losers from 2016 Rnc

Bill Eichner, who already has several jobs that he does to general acclaim, is also trying to take my job. Sitting with Stephen Colbert on Thursday (July 21) night's The Late Show, Eichner paused toward the end of his segment and observed, "This was your week. You killed it this week," as if in addition to Difficult People and Billy on the Street, he were also being tasked with evaluating the performance of the late-night hosts covering the 2016 Republican National Convention. Who's going to argue with Billy Eichner? Certainly not me. The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
