Stephen Colbert takes over as host, executive producer and writer of THE LATE SHOW on Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015. The comedy-variety-talk show will be broadcast five nights a week from the Ed Sullivan theater in New York.
Satirical newscaster Stephen Colbert provides humorous commentary on the big issues going on in the United States and the rest of the world, with his larger-than-life ego and overly-patriotic spirit along with him every step of the way.
Like many of the MSNBC shows, "The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell" looks at the day's events, with the host noting the subtleties not only in the stories, but about how they get discussed. And he always manages to do so seriously but humorously. The show doesn't quite have the cleverness of "Countdown with Keith Olbermann", but I like how O'Donnell presents the issues, such as when he noted why the requirements for police departments to make a certain number of arrests each year leads to mass incarceration of young black men. It's not the best show on TV, but I recommend it, along with "The Rachel Maddow Show" and "All In with Chris Hayes". MSNBC's one of the few good channels out there.
