Under Carson and his producer Fred DeCordova, the late-night talk show turned into a plush entertainment department store open for business.
With that in mind, the Late Show host advised Trump’s competitors to embrace their own signature head gear.
But when Colbert finally articulated a clear philosophy, it was set to a 4/4 backbeat and the chord changes of Sly and the Family Stone’s “Everyday People“.
Colbert paid homage to the legendary David Letterman.
Toby Keith has released his third single from his upcoming album 35 miles per hour Town, titled “Rum Is The Reason” and made a decision to debut it on the new Late Show With Stephen Colbert this past Thursday night (Sept. 10).
TV critics and fans had another worry about the move to network.
Bush’s nothing segment on the opener followed an even less interesting nothing segment wherein George Clooney had nothing interesting to say or do – and that includes his usual unfunny overacting a comedy movie parody that didn’t begin to work. Bill Maher once observed that when he hosted “Politically Incorrect” on ABC, the brass at the channel pressured him to have mostly celebrity guests instead of cultural commentators or politicians. “The Late Show”, meanwhile, has big traction in social media thanks to an emotional appearance by Vice President Joe Biden. CBS apparently is not pushing anything like that on Colbert, who seems to have at least one political figure as a guest in each episode. Rather than the swingy brass band most chat shows have, Stay Human is lighter, and funkier, and vaguely Caribbean, like something you’d hear on Bourbon Street in New Orleans.
As Stephen Colbert put it last night, Donald Trump’s support among GOP voters can be summed up in the words on one focus group participant who explained, “We know he goal is to make America great again… it’s on his hat”.
