The new Late Show continued on Wednesday incident-free with Scarlett Johansson, Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Kendrick Lamar. While Colbert beat him on his first night, Fallon stormed well ahead the following two nights. Ever the consummate writer-performer, Colbert said that despite his mortal fear in the moment, he knew he could make comedic hay out of the situation no matter what happened.
It was an evidently vain hope on my part that Stephen Colbert would even attempt to blow up the format and create another appointment-viewing show. And then things got weird. To give you an idea of how stressful that must be, “The Late Show” was supposed to premiere at 11:35 p.m. that night.
“You could imagine how exciting that was for all of us, after CBS had plastered my face on every flat surface on the planet”, he said.

The Chicago Tribune was unimpressed, calling Colbert’s debut “inauspicious”. This features Colbert wearing a big furry hat as he establishes social guidelines for our world.
“The show almost didn’t get on the air last night”. Among society’s new laws: “On a really hot day, anyone who says ‘hot enough for you?’ to another person will immediately be set on fire”.
