Late Night Today is for our readers who can’t stay awake to watch the shows. Everyone deserves a good laugh.
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
After 460 days of quarantine, broadcasting from a closet eight floors above the Ed Sullivan theater with its iconic ceiling, Stephen is back with a fully vaccinated live audience. Hurrah!!
After seeing this, you might want to break those pants out of your closet again.
Bask in the moment as Stephen Colbert, after 15 long months spent broadcasting from places like his bathtub, his spare bedroom, and a storage closet, kicks off a new era of The Late Show by bringing it back where it belongs: on stage at the Ed Sullivan Theater in front of a loud, rowdy and fully-vaccinated studio audience.
President Joe Biden, who bears an uncanny resemblance to our good friend Dana Carvey, joins Stephen via satellite from Europe where he is deep in preparation for this week’s face-to-face meeting with the Russian leader
We’re back in the Ed Sullivan Theater and it’s only right that Stephen’s first guest is none other than friend of the show, Jon Stewart. What did they talk about? The pandemic, obviously.
Jon Stewart, our first in-studio guest in over 15 months, expresses his great love for scientists, but includes a note of caution for a pandemic-weary world.

The Late Late Show with James Corden
We start the week with a bit of a stumble, as the power on Hagar’s amplifier goes out and James asks CBS Senior Vice President of Late Night Programming (West Coast) Nick Bernstein about his 2-hour podcast interview that failed to mention his current job. We’ll see what other shows besides ours he gets into in Part II…After, James breaks down President Joe Biden’s visit with Queen Elizabeth II which included an etiquette no-no.
