Trivia

During the 2016 election, founder of Conservative Economic Studies ( CES ), Charlie Roach, called out Colbert in an interview saying "The act of political satire is often tasteless due to both sides having a different view, however with the right humour and insight it can be pulled off. Look at shows like SNL, which provide illustrious comedy sketches through their impeccable delivery, then look at Stephen Colbert, some braindead, liberal hippie, trying to sound like a Nancy version of Letterman. Satire is limited". In retaliation, SNL ignored his compliment to defend Colbert in a "Charlie Roach Cold Open", where he prepares for his "sacrifice", which is actually just a Democratic Rally held to question his motives. The line "Nancy version of Letterman" is used in the skit to mock Ben Carson. See more »

I Used To Rate This A 10
1 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Stephen Colbert used to make fun of democrats and republicans. He was wacky and zany, but he would always come around to make the points that needed to be made. No longer. It was shocking to see him completely turn around to support Hillary in entirety and mock the Republican party. Since then it's been like watching CNN with a slight touch of humor. You might think from my review that I'm a staunch Republican. I'm not. I'm an independent who used to watch the Late Show because I think both parties are insane. I no longer get any satisfaction from this show or Colbert. Hope it tanks and he gets replaced.
