Bill O'Reilly: Why Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders 'Are the Same Guy'

20 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Bill O'Reilly discussed the similarities between Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders on The Late Show Monday, telling Stephen Colbert that both candidates "were really the same guy, they just change their facial expressions."

Amidst some concerned "Ooh"'s from the audience, Colbert jumped to note: "I've never seen them in the same room at the same time!"

But O'Reilly did point out that Trump and Sanders are both "tapping into the anger of the voter who feels like he's getting hosed," though the roots of that fear and anger are drastically different. »

Stephen Colbert Makes a Ben Carson Entrance, Discusses Donald Trump With Bill O’Reilly

20 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Stephen Colbert has always poked fun at politicians, both when he was the host of The Colbert Report and during his tenure so far on The Late Show. However, you rarely see Colbert make a great joke without speaking a word, but that changed last night during the opening moments of The Late Show, as the host made a hilariously over-the-top Ben Carson entrance. If you don’t know what Colbert was referencing, look up the introductions of the candidates during Saturday night’s Republican presidential debate, where Dr. Ben Carson didn’t hear his name called and awkwardly stood waiting while the rest of the

What Time Is the Right Time For Watching Late Night TV?

8 February 2016 1:24 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Boasting a regular viewership of more than 100 million viewers, the Super Bowl is an ideal launching platform for primetime TV. So who gets to capitalize on the coveted post-game slot can get a bit contentious. CBS saw fit to give their spot to a first-timer — Stephen Colbert, in his first season as the helmer of "The Late Show" — in a first for the late night genre. Never before had a late night series benefitted from such a lead-in directly, as other networks chose to first show a scripted series after the game and then follow that up with some late night entertainment. Read More: Why Netflix Renewed 'Orange is the New Black' for Three Seasons So how did Colbert do? It depends on who you ask. "The Late Show" pulled in a solid 21.1 million viewers — which is just over what "Elementary" drew for CBS in its post-Super Bowl »

Macklemore, Hillary, and Why White Privilege Is Everyone’s Burden

8 February 2016 12:40 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For the duration of January 2016, it was the foremost topic of conversation. Seemingly each day meant another story about white privilege in the news. Watching this happen is exciting, but also overwhelming in the way it is whenever a new idea is introduced to the mainstream. From DeRay Mckesson teaching Stephen Colbert about the concept on The Late Show to Mark Ruffalo considering a boycott of this year’s very white Academy Awards on the basis of said privilege, it’s seeping into most corners of society, and quickly. The chatter has continued into February, most notably around how brash black and white quarterbacks are judged differently, in both success and failure. White privilege even made its way into the presidential race, when Hillary Clinton was asked in a forum what white privilege means to her and how she’s benefited from it. Clinton’s response could be described as “a collection of words. »

Watch: The Best Super Bowl Moment Was Will Ferrell Not Talking About 'Zoolander 2'

8 February 2016 8:04 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Read More: 'Saturday Night Live' Review: Host Larry David Kicks Off First Stop on New (And Necessary) Political Tour All publicity is good publicity, but can no publicity be great publicity? That's the question that came to mind after Will Ferrell stopped by "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," following the Super Bowl Sunday night. Dressed in the duds of a true outdoorsman, Ferrell was technically there to promote "Zoolander 2," in which he co-stars as the evil clothing designer Mugatu. But he didn't want to talk about "Zoolander 2." In fact, he made a point not to talk about it despite Colbert prodding him a number of times to do just that. Instead, Ferrell wanted to audition for "The Late Show's" new "Exotic Animal Expert," a tradition dating back to "The Tonight Show," Letterman's "Late Show" and beyond, but has since been largely retired on the late night talk circuit. »

Into the Wild! Will Ferrell Channels a Wacko Animal Expert on The Late Show - with a Few Furry Critters in Tow

8 February 2016 7:45 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It's a jungle out there, and you need a pro like Will Ferrell to survive unscathed. Or rather, a nutty wildlife expert whipped up by the comedian. Ferrell, 48, stopped by The Late Show Sunday for a post-Super Bowl chat with Stephen Colbert, where he showed up in full character as an animal expert ready to share his knowledge of the world's most exotic wildlife. Namely, geese, chickens, cats, guinea pigs and other adorable critters. The funnyman then proceeded to cart out an adorable kitten named Mulan (which he described as a "short-spine Peruvian mongoose"), a guinea pig christened Kayak (aka »

The Late Show With Stephen Colbert: How Do You Think the Host Did in the Post-Super Bowl Slot?

8 February 2016 6:33 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Stephen Colbert hosted a special live version of The Late Show night following the Super Bowl, and it was a star-studded edition of the late night show, featuring appearances from Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, and even the Obamas. However, there’s been a lot of talk on social media that Stephen Colbert didn’t take advantage of the the post-Super Bowl time slot that he was given; in fact, some people are saying that he was a flat-out disappointment. There’s no denying that Colbert faced some technical difficulties throughout the hour, but he seemed to overcome them. What appeared challenging were a

Megyn Kelly Tackles Trump, O’Reilly On Stephen Colbert’s Post-Super Bowl ‘Late Show’

8 February 2016 5:40 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

“Why is Fox News feuding with Donald Trump?” Stephen Colbert asked Fnc show host Megyn Kelly on tonight’s live post-Super Bowl broadcast of The Late Show. “What do you have against that good man. He’s just a billionaire who also wants to have the nuclear launch codes.” Kelly responded: “Donald Trump has been on Fox News 140 times in the last year. We are not feuding with him. But he does have a beef with me.” Colbert noted Trump’s tweet of a while back in which he said he… »

Will Ferrell (Sort of) Brings Exotic and Endangered Animals to Stephen Colbert's Post-Super Bowl 50 Late Show

8 February 2016 5:16 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

An animal expert he is not. Will Ferrell visited Stephen Colbert on The Late Show's post-Super Bowl episode, sporting the kind of khaki ensemble Jack Hanna might wear. "Did you get a chance to watch the game backstage?" the host asked. Ferrell hadn't, because "there was a three-hour Downton Abbey." Colbert then addressed the elephant in the room. "I'm curious about your outfit tonight, what that's about," he said. Ferrell said he had noticed Colbert's Late Show is "kind of new," and it doesn't have a regularly scheduled animal expert. "So, I thought I could step in and fill the gap." "I thought we were going to talk about Zoolander 2, »

'Super Bowl Babies' Ad: Kids (and Seal) Sing About Being Conceived During the Game — Genius or Gross?

7 February 2016 6:47 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

For one of its big Super Bowl 50 commercials, the NFL took a slightly different approach to the concept of scoring a touchdown.

The organization enlisted a choir of children to sing about how babies are made — or, more specifically, when they’re made. Set to the tune of Seal’s “Kiss From a Rose,” the kiddos sang about being conceived during Super Bowls past (in glorious falsetto, might I add). Naturally, Seal made a very special appearance alongside them.

Ushered in by Janelle Monáe’s latest Pepsi spot, Chris Martin and Coldplay kicked things off with a performance of hit songs “Viva La Vida” and “Paradise,” accompanied by an ensemble of violinists and a psychedelic, colorful stage.

Stephen Colbert Asks Michael Strahan Who He’s Rooting for in Super Bowl 50

5 February 2016 7:02 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Former NFL superstar and current co-host of Live With Kelly and Michael, Michael Strahan, joined Stephen Colbert on The Late Show last night, and of course, the two of them discussed football, especially with Super Bowl 50 just a couple days away. However, Strahan’s answer to who he is rooting for in this year’s Super Bowl may surprise you. Colbert and Strahan began talking about Super Bowl 50 after the former New York Giant let Colbert try on his Super Bowl ring (“Damn, I could wear this around my neck,” Colbert said when looking at the ring up close). Strahan explained

Watch Wilco's Jeff Tweedy Sing Stephen Colbert a Lullaby

5 February 2016 6:40 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Many of Wilco's folkier, dreamier tunes already feel like alt-rock lullabies, so frontman Jeff Tweedy seemed comfortable singing Stephen Colbert to sleep during Thursday's The Late Show.

"Sometimes you're scared, and then you're not scared / Sometimes you worry, and then you don't care," Tweedy sang in his gentle rasp, strumming an acoustic guitar as the host clutched his teddy bear and stuffed giraffe. "Sometimes you cry and then you're Ok / Tomorrow's gonna be a great day." The pair finished the bit by whistling together, often in accidental harmony.
