Stephen Colbert took over as host, executive producer and writer of THE LATE SHOW on Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015. The comedy-variety-talk show is broadcast five nights a week from the Ed Sullivan theater in New York.
When the show started in 1952, it was seen only in the Eastern and Central time zones, broadcasting three hours a morning but seen for only two hours in each time zone. Later, it aired live for five hours a morning, but it was seen for only two hours in each time zone. Since 1958, the show is tape-delayed for the different time zones. For many years it was a two-hour program from seven to nine ET, until NBC expanded it to three hours (7-10 A.M. Eastern Time/Pacific Time; 6-9 A.M. Central Time/Mountain Time) on October 2, 2000. In 2007, NBC expanded the show to four hours. See more »
The hosts are just boring, and tired. Al and Matt are not funny or interesting either, and now Al looks like a shriveled raisin compared to his former self. They are like cardboard cutouts that could have been supplied from anywhere, with very little actual substance. The best part of the show over the years is when Ann went through that awkward leaving episode with the cast, who barely wanted to touch her, and stuff like the Tom Cruise meltdown on Matt! "Have you studied this issue like I have Matt??!?!?!" Or the weird coma shutdown Al has in youtube videos when someone mentions God or the Holy Ghost. LOL. These are some of the most boring, one-dimensional hosts ever, and you can tell that some of them just hate each other, are doing talking points given out by their overlords, are being rushed, have little worthy news, and have the personality of a cashier at Burger King, in reality.
