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.

Watch: Stephen Colbert Explains Iowa Caucus in ‘Hunger Games’ Terms

4 February 2016 12:47 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In a reprisal of his “Hungry for Power Games” spoof segment, Stephen Colbert provided commentary on post-Iowa caucus election changes Wednesday night on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”

“Being a candidate can’t be a picnic,” said Colbert. “It’s so cutthroat and heartless. It’s like the ‘Hunger Games.’ No, it’s more than that. It’s the ‘Hungry for Power Games.'”

Dressed as “Hunger Games'” host Caesar Flickerman (played in the films by Stanley Tucci) with champagne in hand, Colbert paid tribute to Rand Paul, Martin O’Malley and Mike Huckabee —  all three of whom announced the end of their presidential campaigns following the results of the Iowa caucus.

“There has been a bloodbath in Iowa’s cornucopia, an unprecedented harvest of brave tributes,” Colbert announced before acknowledging each “fallen” candidate. “Let us now bid farewell to those who have fallen, for the rest your time »

Stephen Colbert Casts Off Campaign Tributes Rand Paul, Martin O'Malley

4 February 2016 8:12 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Stephen Colbert bid farewell to several 2016 presidential tributes felled by the Iowa caucuses on the latest installment of The Late Show's riotous Hunger Games send-up, "Hungry for Power Games."

First up, Republican candidate Rand Paul, whose early campaign gimmicks included a series of viral videos in which he burned and shredded the United States tax code. Taking a page from Paul's "book of heavy-handed metaphors," Colbert dropped a portrait of the Kentucky senator in a toaster and cackled, "Goodbye Rand, you're toast!" But when the picture popped back up unscathed, »

Stephen Colbert Honors the Fallen Presidential Candidates in The Hungry for Power Games on The Late Show

4 February 2016 6:20 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

After each new presidential candidate has left the race, Stephen Colbert has taken the time to honor him or her in The Hungry for Power Games on The Late Show, and since the Iowa Caucuses caused quite a few more candidates to suspend their campaigns, the late night host was quite busy when he channeled Caesar Flickerman again last night. Colbert filmed The Late Show before Rick Santorum had officially left the race, but even without Santorum, he still had three other former candidates to discuss: Rand Paul, Martin O’Malley, and Mike Huckabee. In the video below, Colbert, decked out with his purple-ish

Stephen Colbert Compares The Bachelor to the Iowa Caucuses on The Late Show

Stephen Colbert took some time on The Late Show on Tuesday night to talk about the results of the Iowa Caucuses, discussing the night’s biggest winners and losers and just how close the race between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders was. However, before he got into the specifics of what happened in Iowa, Colbert had fun with viewers, comparing the political event to the high stakes of ABC’s The Bachelor. “It was a huge night last night,” Colbert told the audience. “You guys know what I’m talking about? Everybody’s talking about it….We were all glued to our TV screens watching a bitter

Galifianakis, Rogen and Hader Team for Space Comedy 'The Something'

2 February 2016 5:10 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

22 Jump Street writer Rodney Rothman has gathered an impressive cast for his directorial debut, a space comedy entitled The Something, which has been in the works for quite some time. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Seth Rogen, Zach Galifianakis and Bill Hader have all been set to star. While it isn't known when production will get under way, it seems this project is finally coming together.

We first reported on The Something way back in February 2010, when Universal Pictures preemptively picked up Rodney Rothman's pitch. At the time, the project was described as an ensemble horror/comedy hybrid set in deep space, which was being compared to Zombieland. The story centers on a crew of male astronauts who have been stranded in outer space for years, when they finally come across another ship. Deadline adds that both of these crews hate each other, but they have to find a way to work together. »

Stephen Colbert and Kermit the Frog Ask Each Other the Big Questions on The Late Show

Stephen Colbert has been joined by many popular actors and actresses on The Late Show for “Big Questions with Even Bigger Stars.” However, I don’t think any of them are as universally beloved as Kermit the Frog, who appeared on the late night show last night and got into some deep conversations about life with Colbert. In the video below, Stephen Colbert and Kermit go back and forth, asking each other about pretty much everything, from what their biggest regret is to if it’s truly better to give than to receive. All of the answers they give are funny and pretty ridiculous

Kermit T. Frog joined Stephen Colbert on his blanket under the cosmos to ponder free will, regrets, identity and high-fives on the latest installment of The Late Show's "Big Questions With Even Bigger Stars."

The pair didn't ease into their existential musings either, with Colbert asking right off the bat, "You ever wonder why we're here?"

"Oh, well I think it's because your people reached out to my agent," said Kermit.

Stephen Colbert Doesn't Miss His Colbert Report Persona - Though He Was Tempted to Dust It Off For This Year's Gop Candidates

1 February 2016 10:35 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It's been over a year since the last episode of The Colbert Report aired, and just over five months since Stephen Colbert took over The Late Show hosting duties from David Letterman - and according to the comedian, he doesn't miss his Comedy Central persona at all. "When I first started interviewing people, like when I had Jeb [Bush] or [Donald] Trump or [Ted] Cruz on, he'd sit on my shoulder, like the devil on my shoulder," Colbert, 51, says in Adweek's Super Bowl issue of his satirical Colbert Report portrayal of a conservative political pundit. "And he would say, 'Let me do this one. »

Stephen Colbert is about to come face-to-face to one of his former targets. Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly has been added to the lineup for The Late Show's live post-Super Bowl episode, CBS announced Monday.

On this day in pop culture history: ‘Late Night with David Letterman’ premiered

1 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

34 years ago today, a new talk show favorite was born when Late Night with David Letterman debuted. Letterman hosted Late Night on NBC until 1993, when the network chose Jay Leno over Letterman to take Johnny Carson’s place as host of The Tonight Show. Letterman then moved to CBS and launched Late Show with David Letterman. On both Late Night’s first show in 1982 and Late Show’s first episode in 1993, Bill Murray was the first guest. He was a frequent guest on both, with 44 appearances between the two shows. In the final episode of Late Show with David Letterman last May, Murray presented item No. 1 on the show’s star-studded final Top 10 list. Other notable February 1 happenings in pop culture history: • 1896: Giacomo Puccini opera La bohème had its world premiere in Turin, Italy. 100 years later, the massive popularity-bound musical Rent premiered in New York — Jonathan Larson based Rent »

Stephen Colbert Gets Last (And Best) Laugh On Debate Night

In a blatant and self-acknowledged grab for all those Trump loyalists who jumped the Fox News ship when the Donald refused to share a screen with moderator Megyn Kelly, Stephen Colbert won the night hands-down with his note-perfect debate mock-up last night. The host of CBS’s The Late Show moderated a Trump versus Trump event, with clips of the front-running Republican candidate going “mano-a-moutho” against his own self.
