Colbert has good week in ratings despite controversy

Colbert has good week in ratings despite controversy

Colbert was joined by former Daily Show host Jon Stewart along with Samantha Bee, John Oliver, Ed Helms and Rob Corddry.

Still, as Colbert closes in on his second full year at CBS, it will be important to see how The Late Show continues to develop. You might notice, though, that his graphics team chose to put Full Frontal's Samantha Bee on Black Widow's body despite her hair being a much better match for Thor than John Oliver's. "But might I say, I learned it from you, dad". I've done his show ...

Then he put his new boss on the spot.

John Stewart has come forward to defend Stephen Colbert for his recent abusive on-air tirade directed at US President Donald Trump.

The last time all five people appeared on TV together was during Stewart's "Daily Show" farewell in 2015, which featured most of the correspondents from the show's history. "While I greatly appreciate that I'm an awesome lover, I'm leaving you for a younger woman on the advice of the Department of Justice". "One reason they gave, and this is really something, for firing Comey was because he mishandled the Hillary Clinton email situation", he said.

"Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine", he continued.

Sometimes those sketches went from uncomfortable to risky - like when Colbert offended the Ku Klux Klan. The late night host found himself at the center of an internet controversy when his monologue on May 1 culminated in a tirade of comedic insults against President Trump. He knows all about what we're doing. So much so, he addressed, while chatting with Stewart.

"And I looked around". "There are guys, big guys in hoods saying to me, 'Comedy, what?" What is this now? The celebration got upstaged a bit when, shortly before the taping, President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey as Comey was investigating whether Trump associates cozied up to Russians during the presidential election. So the hulking group went off to confront their leader.

One of the more unpleasant interview subjects for Samantha Bee was a guy who claimed that homosexuals made him physically ill.

And it turned out that he was plotting something kinky on set. Evaluating popularity by Google searches is ridiculous - and not just because it's entirely possible that some people are searching Fallon (or any of the other hosts) because they hate him.
