I haven't watched any of this new show, but I'm really glad Colbert is on television again. He's honestly pretty great. I have one of his books.
What would be fuckin amazing though is a late night show with Bill Nye.

I use to watch him on Comedy Central and thought he was okay, but he isn't my favorite host. He's waaaay better than Jon Stewart, imo. I hate that guy.

I'm really underwhelmed about Colbert.... BUT wait a few weeks or months and he might be pretty good.

I remember when Conan did the Tonight Show and I thought he was kind of lame to start off but he got better . . . then they dragged Leno back . . . that was true lame-ness. I really liked Conan.

Craig Ferguson was the best...

I'm glad someone mentioned the word character because that what he is... I thought that he was leaving the persona behind when he left Comedy Central, but I guess not?

I will say that his dedication to remaining in-character for all public appearances over the years is astounding.
i don't think I'd have the stones to testify at Senate hearings as my made up persona.
Actually it blows my mind that people invited a fictional character to the Senate in the first place.

I'm watching Colbert for the first time right now. It's pretty funny but seems like generic late night material. It's a little more political than others but I would like to see some more defining characteristics. At least the interview is solid and doesn't feel too scripted.

I think Conan is by far the best, and Jimmy Kimmel has some great segments.

Over all I enjoyed The Colbert Report and was a little disappointed when ti ended, however he seems to have done everything that he could with the character and it was time for a change. Over all I think that the knew show is very good and with any luck it will only get better.

I do not want someone who's involved in politics as much as he is (a lot) to be a late night show host. I'd want someone who's barely involved in that stuff. Otherwise everything gets out of hand and the show is no longer popular. Hope they replace him, and quick.

I'm kind of conflicted about this since it feels more like he took a downgrade than something even better. It seems his current content is not hitting nearly as many funny bones due to abandoning his old character. Although, I feel his interviewing skills are great and much better than how Jimmy Fallon talks with his guests.

I don't know who Stephen Colbert is and I don't know what the late show is.

He's not particularly good at interviewing without relying on his old pundit persona. He and his guests just don't seem super comfortable or prepared.

I think the new theme song is really bad, and also find Jon Batiste to be pretty dull. He desperately needs a funny side kick to play off of akin to Andy Richter.

Has its moments though. He's a pretty funny guy after all. Some of his little sketches are amusing- though not as much as the stuff from the Colbert Report.
