Stephen Colbert took over as host, executive producer and writer of THE LATE SHOW on Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015. The comedy-variety-talk show is 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.
Was originally called "The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore". The title was changed in preproduction after FOX threatened legal action due to their sci-fi cop show Minority Report (2015) also being in development. See more »
Where do I even begin with this show. First and foremost Larry Wilmore isn't really concerned with addressing what is actually wrong with the world. He just tries to highroad everyone that is currently relevant regardless of whether they are right or wrong. His attitude feels a bit superior and juvenile in nature causing his delivery to be ineffective. This is supposed to be a comedy show but Wilmore takes himself too seriously and instead treats it like his own version of "the View". The formula is to pick a topic to discuss with a panel of his "correspondents" and a guest. However nine times out of ten Wilmore and his correspondents over speculate or decide to focus on petty things instead of actually touching on whats important and needs speculation. Wilmore's co-stars don't help this Hindenburg of a show either since they are entitled, unfunny, and in some cases unreasonably rude to their guests. This show also tries to replicate bits that are similar to bits from "The Colbert Report" and "The Daily Show" but the writing is so poor and the execution is so bad that it just feels watered down and half-baked. The goal of the show seems to be as follows: Find out what makes the audience cheer, and milk it for all it's worth. Overall it feels like they are trying very hard to gain the audiences support by manipulation and pandering instead of just being good on their own and earning a reputation.
