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.
I found the jokes about ad placement to be pretty amusing. The only things I don't like are the joke interviews with the "Crackle President" (although Mr. Richards is hilarious), and how much conversation is cut out by "B roll" of music and walking around. Mr. Seinfeld is still very relevant and these conversations are incredibly honest most of the time. I've already recommended it to several folks I know.

I've been skipping around through the seasons, and I think my favorite episode is tied between Louis C.K. and Tina Fey. Clearly, he is very respected among his comedic peers.
